Dark Kiss (Nightwatchers #1) – Michelle Rowen


Smart, über-careful, ordinary Samantha-that’s me. But I just couldn’t pass up a surprise kiss from my number-one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me…something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It’s like part of me is missing-and I don’t know if I can get it back.

Then there’s Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he’s keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he’s what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me. But something terrifying is closing in, and the one chance Bishop and I have to stop it means losing everything I ever wanted and embracing the darkness inside me….


When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising…


The cover is what drew me to this book in the first place, it’s beautiful and dark.

This is a very easy read.  It is not overly complicated and it is very entertaining.  I read this one in one night.  It did take me a little bit to get into the story.  I would read a couple pages and put it down but once it got going I couldn’t stop.  It kind of reminded me of the show Charmed…not the witches part but the working with demons to get the “big/bad” and also they have an entity called “The Hollow”.

I only wish that the author could have made the “Bishop” character more charismatic.  I know he is supposed to be the romantic unattainable love interest but I just couldn’t feel it.  Even the kissing scenes didn’t really give me the sexual tension that I think should have been present.

One of the only reasons I prefer young adult paranormal books is because the adult paranormal fiction has so much more sexual content (not that I’m against a good romp, I just really like the tension that comes with young adult fiction)

I am hoping the story gets fleshed out in the next book because I think it could be really good if it gets done right.  This series has a lot of potential.

Recommended for teens/young adults…minimal language, no sex, some violence (not graphic)
