Kiss of Night by Debbie Viguié
Publication Date: October 7, 2011
It was an accident that I picked up this book to read. I was simply scanning the fiction bookshelf at my local bookstore, when the cover caught my eye. And the title to be honest. I was craving something with a heap of romance in it, and what's better than a paranormal romance? I stressing over finals, so I thought this would be a great way to get my mind off of the tests.
Kiss of Night is labeled as paranormal Christian fiction, although I didn't realize that when I first bought it, and as I read it, I myself would have classified it as only paranormal romance. But that's not important.
The characters in general were alright, but I felt a little something lacking. Especially with Raphael. I definitely would have been happier with a little more character development, such as Raphael and why he was so evil. The humans, Susan, David, and Wendy felt bland and one-dimensional at times. Since this is only first in the series, I'm hoping that there's more development down the line.
Overall, I thought the plot was decent, given that this is a first in a trilogy, but I'm still debating whether or not to purchase the next in the series. Not a good sign, in my opinion.
Verdict: 3 out of 5
