Abigail Tate was a normal human girl. Until the day Bronx the vampire barges into her life and turns her against her will. Held captive while forced to deal with never ending cravings for blood, Abby prays for a way to escape. Only when an opportunity arises, it's with the aid of an innocent human named Tyler--except vampires are forbidden to interact with the unbitten. But Abby quickly learns this human has secrets of his own...secrets that can either help her or get her killed. Only Abby discovers that she was the one with the biggest secret of them all. ***June 2012 Extras added to the e-book version only (including the first chapter of the sequel Crimson Rain (book #2 of The Crimson Series)***
Ashley Robertson resides in sunny Orlando, Florida and loves reading and writing about everything urban fantasy and paranormal romance. When she isn't writing, you'll find her spending time with family and friends, training in her home gym, traveling and exploring new places, drinking fine red wines, and making gourmet coffees with her Nespresso machine.
Crimson Groves captivated me from the beginning and constantly delved into the unexpected; I was constantly surprised by the plot and character development. Ashley Robertson, very successfully weaves an interesting tale of action, intrigue and romance, all with a paranormal twist.
I really like Abby's character and cheered her from the sidelines (fairly vocally at times). Additionally, I completely was sucked in by Bronx and Tyler's characters; this impressed me somewhat considering the character development that focuses on these two male characters in particular.
The story well crafted. I especially enjoyed the plot structure and development. I wasn't always convinced by Tyler's voice however. His persona, as portrayed by his dialogue, was somewhat childlike; he regularly sounded more like a 15 year old boy as opposed to a man.
On the whole, I really enjoyed Crimson Groves and give it a highly recommended 4 stars! Plus I can't wait to read Unguarded.
