Dark Awakening

Dark Awakening (Dark Dynasties #1)

Enter the world of the Dark Dynasties . . .
For centuries, shapeshifting vampire Tynan MacGillivray has prowled the night as an outcast, valued only for his ferocious hunting skills. When a feud among the immortals escalates into all-out war, he is ordered by his ruthless queen to locate a Seer-a human woman with a special gift-who can secure victory for their clan. Ty's search leads him to a quiet New England town, but once he has the Seer in his grasp, her touch awakens within him a hunger like he's never known . . .
Lily Quinn has always been different. Since childhood, she's had vivid nightmares and an eerie sixth sense. When a sexy, silver-eyed stranger demands her help, Lily plunges into a new world of danger and sensuality. With Ty, she discovers sizzling passions she cannot deny and powers she cannot control. Soon, it is clear that Lily is much more than a Seer-she holds the key to ancient secrets and unthinkable destruction. But will a vampire's vow of eternal protection stop these evil forces . . . or unleash her dark destiny?

(My Thoughts)    5   STARS!!!!!
I love how the storyline in Dark Awakening has a Queen ruling with a modern setting. I was pulled right into this vampire world with the different dynasties: Highbloods and Lowbloods under the rule of Queen Arsinoe, where your worth is determined by the tattoo that appears on your shoulder. Queen Arsinoe definitely does not believe all vampires are created equal. If you have the mark of a Cait Sith then your place in this world is to server the Queen and her highbloods. But not everyone likes this way and Highbloods are being killed. This is where Tynan comes in. He is a Cait Sith hunter sent to find a seer for the Queen. I fell in love with Tynan’s character. He’s the gorgeous, strong, and dark silent type. To get close to him, you are going to have to break down a few walls. Lily is a seer, but Lily also has a destiny to fulfill and it includes Tynan. The romance between Lily and Tynan is beautiful and hot, but Ty can’t believe Lily is his destiny. He's a Lowblood, shape-shifting vampire with issues. It’s going to take Lily’s love to finally prove to Ty that he is worth being loved.

The amazing storyline and characters in Dark Awakening are beautiful and strong. But I have to say, Tynan did it for me alone. He is just an amazingly beautiful character. I couldn't help but fall in love with him and I'm so glad there's going to be a second book. I highly recommend Dark Awakening. You won’t be disappointed. A great addition the Paranormal market.
