5+ stars for The Vampire’s Witch by J.M. Davies #pnr #paranormalromance #bookreview

Title: The Vampire’s Witch

Author: J.M. Davies

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Book Blurb:


This is the first thrilling spinoff from The Rise of Orion series, The Vampire's Witch!


As an ancient vampire, Roman De’ Luca has amassed wealth, power, and the title of Prince of the Northern Territories, all of which make his dark existence tolerable. But a chance encounter with an enticing witch, whose sweet scent and blood awaken his stone-cold heart, threatens all he has achieved.


Blade-throwing, thrill-seeking witch Isabella Lockhart is a skilled hunter for her coven. She’s made a good living killing monsters and working in the security team Orion. She’s also the black sheep of her family, always breaking the rules, and is a magnet for danger. After one too many reckless decisions, Isabella ends up being claimed by an arrogant vampire with life-changing consequences for them both.


When the hunter becomes the hunted and a battle for leadership morphs into a fight for their survival, the enemies-to-lovers are forced to put aside their differences. Together they journey across the globe for answers.


But time is running out.


Will Roman be able to prevent Isabella from becoming the very creature she loathed? And at what cost?


My Review:


One taste brought vampire Roman to his knees, but can he protect the witch he loves before Isabella becomes the monster she reviles? Vampires and witches have been heated rivals in and out the paranormal world since time began. J.M. Davies takes these enemies and crafts an intense paranormal romance I couldn’t put down. The world-building mixes with descriptive narration, heart-stopping romance, emotional dialogue, and characters that’ll steal your heart to make The Vampire’s Witch an unputdownable read.


Let’s start with the world-building. I’m familiar with J.M. Davies’ Orion series so I had high expectations for this book. The world-building in The Vampire’s Witch is exceptional and without flaw. She creates a world based on paranormal myth yet original. The vampire world she creates is rigid and full of political intrigue. The witch society rules are unique as are the characters in this book. The world-building drew me into the story from the very beginning and kept me invested until the last page.


The characters are well-written and leap from the page. Roman is a mysterious vampire who could be considered an antihero. I connected with him. Isabella is a feisty heroine who jumps into the fray without thought. She’s a strong-willed witch who hunts monsters at night. Her complex personality captured my heart. The rest of the characters add colorful depth to the story.


I’m a PNR junkie and I love finding books like this one. Why? The writing is so immersive that I forget I’m reading a book. I get so caught up in the story and it’s pure bliss. The Vampire’s Witch hits all my pleasure spots, and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.


My Rating: 5+ stars
