Paranormal Pumpkin Patch Day Eleven w/ Giveaway - Ashley Robertson

Sweat beaded up on my forehead; my neck felt sticky. After what felt like forever, the screaming trailed off taking the other noises with it. I pressed the phone to my ear trying to hear anything. Anything that would let me know my father was okay. “Hello, are you there? Hello!” Crimson Grove by Ashley Robertson

Reviewer: Bex
Rating: 4 out of 5 Fairies
Crimson Groves captivated me from the beginning and constantly delved into the unexpected; I was continually 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 liked Abby's character and cheered her from the sidelines (fairly vocally at times). Additionally, I 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 is well crafted. I especially enjoyed the plot structure and how the author unfolded the key events. I wasn't always convinced by Tyler's voice. 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 fairies! 
***I've also read book two, Crimson Flames - Bex 'n' Books rated 4.5 fairies!



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)***


The Crimson Series (Book Two) New Adult

Now the Resistance will do anything possible to remove the hybrid threat, and with no other options, Abby is forced to rely on the aid of the Council, yet can she trust the very vampires that hunt for her human lover?
