Book Blurb:

Blindsided by an attack that destroys her home and blamed for murder, Karolina Dalca, a half-vampire, escapes, only to plunge into the magical societies from which she was sheltered.

Betrayed by those around her, she abandons her dreams of becoming an investigator and flees, trusting only herself. Her police internship would never prove more useful. Hoofing it through the wilderness, she makes it to her university dorm, disheveled but delightfully deflowered.

Enter a full vampire: one wielding dark magic and a ride out of Canada. A fugitive from the law, Karo complies with his demands to escape, unsure whether his requests are bewitched. She vows to clear her name and avenge her mother’s death, but Karo’s family secrets aren’t so easily left behind.


My Review:

When Dave first told me about Karolina Dalca, Dark Eyes, I knew I had to read it. I love a good vampire story, especially if it has some werewolves thrown in too (to clarify, this book is nothing like Twilight, despite the vampires and werewolves), so I was extremely excited about this book!

From the very beginning, this book is full of action and excitement, which makes you desperate to read on. This intensity continues the entire way through the story, right to the very end. There is quite a lot of heavy violence, but that’s what I loved about it, and the magical element made it all the more enjoyable. I particularly loved the combination of dark and light magic.

The story is packed with interesting characters, not just the main characters, but the minor characters too. I liked that they all seemed to have different magical powers, ways of using them, and ways of conjuring them. There were definitely a few characters that I would have liked to have been more involved in the story, and also a few character relationships that I’m not really sure how I feel about. For example, Karo and Roman’s relationship… there were times when I loved it, but then there were also times where I just didn’t get it.

Overall, I definitely enjoyed this book! It was exciting, magical, and I liked the authors writing style. I will certainly be reading the next book in the series when it comes out! Hopefully it will bring more world building, more background stories, and involve some of the characters that I wanted to see more of in this one.

I give Karolina Dalca, Dark Eyes a 4 star rating!


About The Author:

M. R. Noble has played a tug of war between science and art her whole life, but the rope broke when she wrote the first line of The Dark Eyes Series. Immersed up to her keyboard in paranormal romance and urban fantasy, she enjoys blending the real with the surreal.

The only drawback is she misplaces her mug while dreaming up her next scene, and soon finds herself six cups overpoured.

Keeping to her Lake Simcoe roots, she is a member of the Writers Community of York Region (WCYR), where her muse is made not found . . . over a hefty cup of coffee.
