Book Review: Lord of Darkness by Sherile Reilly
Release Date: January 1, 2016
Publisher: Saborn Press
Alexander Winslow dreads the midnight hour when darkness permeates his soul, spasms of pain slash his body and hours of torment begin.
Afflicted by an ancient family curse, Alex endures a nightly transformation and is doomed to stalk the countryside, searching for prey.
Seeking refuge from her greedy uncle who wants her killed, heiress Victoria Northcote escapes to Winslow Mansion, the home of an old family friend. However, the friend is dead and Alex, the new master, has his secret to guard and he doesn't welcome Vicki.
When they are forced into a dangerous alliance, tempers flare and passions ignite.
At only a 160 pages this story felt a little rushed. There was a lot more that the author could have done with this to help flesh out the characters.
Alexander is tormented by his family curse. Every first born son in his family has had it and usually dies some horrible death. He is desperate to find a way to break it but hasnt yet found the key.
Victoria is on the run from her Uncle who I think gave up a little too quickly in trying to kill her to obtain her fortune. Taken in by Alex whose father was a family friend, she tries to adhere to his strange rules even as she is desperate for the safety of her brother.
This was a quick read and the story was good I just think it could have been better if it had been fleshed out a bit more.
