Crèche (Book II of Paranormal Fallen Angels/Vampires Series) Karin Cox Kindle Edition Published 2013 5 out of 5 Star Audience recommendation: For lovers of paranormal fiction. Well-written, perfect world creation, gripping and imaginative plot, dimensional characters.
And the next one does not disappoint!
I truly thought ‘Cruxim’ was one of the best paranormal
novels I have read in a long, long while…well, Karin’s latest novel, ‘Crèche’,
has most certainly topped the list for me now!
‘Crèche’ follows on from ‘Cruxim’ and it yet again takes you
to another beautifully created world that is elegantly described and extremely
visual, plunging you deeper into the lives of all Cruxims.
Amedeo thought he was all alone, as did the reader, well now
you will learn what it is to be a Cruxim - what the ‘crux’ to bear really entails,
what their true destiny is, who their real enemies are, how they hide and hunt,
mate, breed and most importantly, love.
‘Crèche’ introduces us to Skylar, another Cruxim, who helps
Amedeo come to terms with his pain, his past and ultimately his purpose. She
helps him search for Sabine, as he is desperate to find her and save her. But
it is when she leads him to Silvenhall that she gives him the greatest gift –
knowledge, and so very much more!
Information about these amazing creatures and their purpose
is slowly revelled, which kept me gripped to the page, wanting to learn more
about them. What happened to Sabine? Amedeo’s mother? Who is his father? What it
the purpose of the ’Swan’. How did Cruxims come to be?
You will be awed and amazed at how the plot effortlessly
unfolds and answers one of the most important questions of all…
Karin has a flawless way of describing scenes that are so
easily brought to life. I could imagine myself in the world she has created, I
could see, smell, touch, taste what surrounded me. Her way with words is an
Her characters are dimensional and really allow the reader
to connect with them easily. You will have no trouble feeling Amedeo’s confusion,
Sabine’s sadness and Skylar’s serenity.
If you loved ‘Cruxim’ as I did, you will not be disappointed
with Karin’s latest offering.
Yes, there is more pain and heartache – but there is also unconditional
love and a new way for Ame to heal himself.
So hurry up Karin – write the third one – I again am eagerly
awaiting your next triumph!

Thought you knew all there was to know about vampires and the creatures
that hunt them? Well think again, because if you haven't 'met' a Cruxim
or a Sphinx, well you have not fully 'lived' in the supernatural world.
'Cruxim' is one of the most original supernatural tales I have read
in a long, long while - and I have read a load of 'vampire, angel,
demon, fairy-filled' books. Add to this an outstanding cast of
characters, intense love-affairs, dramatic scenes, historic places, and a
story based on extremely well-researched mythological facts - and you
most certainly have the next big thing in this well-loved genre.
Karin has a beautiful and effortless way with words - her
descriptions are breathtaking, her characterisations are dimensional,
her plot is flawless. Believe me, when you delve into the magical world
she has created, you will not be disappointed - only so much in that you
will need to wait for her to finish the next book in the series!
"Amedeo is Cruxim — an
immortal dark angel who knows neither his purpose, nor his past, save
but to feed on the supernatural beings that plague the earth. When his
one weakness, the girl and novice nun Josette, is taken and turned by
his enemies, Amedeo vows never to rest until evil is expunged from his
world — even if that means killing Josette along with her vampire
On his quest, he meets Sabine: a guardian. Half-woman,
half-lioness, she is a Sphinx who has been protecting humans from
vampires since the dawn of time. But when she fails in her task of
protecting a young boy, she is relentlessly pursued by her evil
employer, Dr. Claus Gandler, a scientist collecting a sideshow of
A gothic paranormal that explores the beast within amid a
setting of mythology and forbidden love, Cruxim's dark world and
conflicted characters are the antithesis of the sparkly vampire genre."
Let 'Cruxim' take you an all-consuming adventure you will not want to tear yourself away from...
