Review: Deliver me from darkness - Tes Hilaire

Series: Paladin Warriors #1
Genre: Paranormal romance
Pages: 368
Published: February 7, 2012

Source: For review

A STRANGER IN THE NIGHT... 
He had once been a warrior of the Light, one of the revered Paladin. A protector. But now he lives in darkness, and the shadows are his sanctuary. Every day is a struggle to overcome the bloodlust. Especially the day Karissa shows up at his doorstep. 

COMES KNOCKING ON THE DOOR 
She is light and bright and everything beautiful—despite her scratches and torn clothes. Every creature of the night is after her. So is every male Paladin. Because Karissa is the last female of their kind. But she is his. He may not have a soul, but he can't deny his heart.

My thoughts:
I read this book in no time, the pages just kind of flew by. There was passion, there was drama and there was this ease over it all which I appreciated. 

Roland then, he is your good guy, who is sadly bad, but does not want to be. While Karissa is your good girl, running from the baddies. And one of Roland's old buddies brings her around to keep her safe. Which she does not like, considering Roland is bad and all. They are meant to be and nothing can stop that. 

I needed a bit of fated love where the man goes all mine! Where they are totally wrong but that pull of true love gets them together. Where things might be rushed, but hey, it's love. And here I liked it. 

There was something light over the language here which worked well in this rather dark world. The Paladins, the good guys, do not seem that good when all comes down to it. And the bad guys, well they are evil. There were side-characters too around and I hope Logan finds love, I would like to see more of a certain vamp girl, and a certain paladin grew on me. I'd read more of this light yet so dark paranormal romance. 

Conclusion:
It's a promising start to a new series. True love, evil vampires out to get you and secrets that will keep you entertained. 

Cover:
Oh you know me, I want to see a head

  3. In my paranormal romances, I always like when the guy goes all "mine", though in real life I probably wouldn't find it nearly as amusing:) I'll be checking this series out!

  9. lol, the heads are too costly whereas the abs...practically cheapo! A dozen a penny!

    True love, evil vampires out to get you and secrets that will keep you entertained.

    Hmmm...do you want to hear something goth scary? I don't like the sound of this book - not at all. A perfect suggestion for a negative review...hmmm...

  18. Nice review, and I would love to start reading this series, if it wasn't for the name Paladin.
    I already read a series about the Paladins of Darkness, written by Alexis Morgan, and I love it. I could not enjoy this new series with similar title names and covers and Paladins in it.

  19. I really should read a romance soon. I've been rather mystery heavy lately.

  20. Roro
    Thanks :)


    Melissa
    I do like that, perfect for me that day


    Steph
    Well...it's about a guy who is a vamp, but he was not always, and all the other vamps are bad. So not truly about them ;)


    Aurian
    Aha, while I on the other hand has not come across any paladins before so it worked well for me


    Carol
    I have noticed ;)
