I'm kicking off My Favorite Things event early with a Review/giveaway*ended* of Avalon Revisited!
Steampunk is one of my most favorite genre's, so here is my first birthday review/ giveaway!
Arthur has made his existence as a vampire bearable for over three hundred years by immersing himself in blood and debauchery. Aboard an airship gala, he meets Avalon, an aspiring vampire slayer who sparks fire into Arthur’s shriveled heart. Together they try to solve the mystery of several horrendous murders on the dark streets of London. Cultures clash and pressures rise in this sexy Steampunk Romance.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I wanted to read this book since I heard of its release and I was finally able to yesterday. It's a nice quick read, but yet not TOO quick. I love how it was put together and how the steampunk aspect came into play. Lots of mention of gadgets and a nice little ride on an airship (my first!) made this one unique to me. I'm a huge paranormal freak so the combination of two of my favorite things came together perfectly.I really wasn't expecting this one to be so good. I expected more mistakes or a story that didn't flow well or had poor character development. This had none of those things. The characters were well developed and love-able and the story flowed very nicely. I loved Arthurs history and his ability to love after he was sure he couldn't love again. Everything came together in the story very nicely.The only thing that I didn't love was the end wrapped up a bit abruptly, in my opinion. It wasn't a huge deal though and I really hope that Grey plans to continue these characters in another book.Overall this book far exceeded my expectations and made me want to find every paranormal steampunk book out there to read. Luckily I have a couple of others here waiting to be read.Great job O.M. Grey!
