#IOBooktours Review: BRINK OF ETERNITY by Caris Roane

Discover powerful winged vampire warriors, the Guardians of Ascension, and the women they’re sworn to protect!

Warrior Gideon swore he would never see Elise Jordan again even though they’d been passionate lovers for two years. Her human nature couldn’t survive in his ascended vampire world; she would be vulnerable to attack on every front if he tried to continue a relationship with her. But when Elise starts having visions of the future of Gideon’s sister hunted by death vampires, Gideon can no longer ignore that Elise is in her Call to Ascension, her call to become a vampire. Though determined to keep her at bay, the infamous breh-hedden, an all-consuming vampire bonding ritual, wraps him up tight and demands that he protect Elise. As he strives to keep her alive during her Rite of Ascension, love threatens to overwhelm his carefully ordered, war-weary world.
Reader, please note: BRINK OF ETERNITY was published under a different cover, same title, in July of 2011. The content is the same.

In the world of vampires and paranormal romance finding a world that is unique is hard to do, Caris Roane has managed to do that with Brink of Eternity and the The World of Ascension series. This is an in between novella #2.5 in this series.

Gideon is a warrior first and foremost, he plans to devoting his life (eternal as it may be) to helping win the war within the vampire world. He has recently ended a two year affair he had been carrying on with a human, Elise.

Elise had always had to hide her gift, she was taught at an early age that it was not something to be discussed and as an effort to keep control of her life and ignore her visions she is very ordered and very scheduled. When she receives a vision of Gideon's beloved sister being in danger she has to go against everything she thought she wanted in order to help save Rachel.

The unique world that has been created in this series is well done and the mythology that has even been created as part of this world is good. I enjoyed the chemistry between Elise and Gideon, with this being an in between novella a lot of the back story of the two warring factions and even of the warriors themselves is missing. I would say on its own it is a good read and I liked it, I think if read as part of the series it would be even better.

About the Author:

I was ten when I first watched an old movie version of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and loved it! Movies led to books, which led to writing and after a good long while, publishing. I wrote sweet Regency romance for Kensington for 19 years and recently fell in love with paranormal, although I’ve always had a thing for vampires. I currently write paranormal romance for St. Martin’s Press but I self-publish as well. Building an online platform has been an enormous but rewarding challenge. I think all the changes in publishing will alter how authors approach the business going forward and I for one am thrilled to have so many options.

Caris Roane has published over fifty Regency romance novels and novellas under the pen name, Valerie King. In 2005, Romantic Times gave her a Career Achievement award in Regency Romance. Having had a long-time love affair with vampires, Caris tackled the paranormal genre and built a unique vampire world based on ascending dimensional earths. Her series is called Guardians of Ascension.
Her most recent self-published project, The Blood Rose Novella Series, launched in May of 2012 with the first title: Embrace the Dark.

Currently, Caris is working on a new vampire series set to launch in the Fall of 2013: WARRIORS IN CHAINS with the first novel, BORN IN CHAINS.
Caris lives in Phoenix, Arizona, with her two cats, Sebastien and Gizzy.
