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 absolute delight.

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!

Ever met a 'Cruxim?'

By Karin Cox
Kindle Edition
Published December 2012 by Indelible Ink Press

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 brethren.

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 freaks.

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...
