    Kat returns in the second series with a new life in Paris where she is hiding from the Directorate. She's hungry all the time and it's not for food. Across in the US, hybrid Ben pretends to be a normal kid but he too is hiding. Between these two main POVs (though there are others), the story moves forward at a faster pace than the first book. We learn more about the Taberin and the importance of Kat in their world, as well as the Families of Power aka the witches. Kat and Ben are likeable though Kat returns in the second series with a new life in Paris where she is hiding from the Directorate. She's hungry all the time and it's not for food.

We learn more about the Taberin and the importance of Kat in their world, as well as the Families of Power aka the witches. Kat and Ben are likeable though they make mistakes. It'll be interesting to see how much more they grow in the final instalment of the series. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

    I was lucky with the first book, as by the time I came across it, I was able to buy the omnibus edition. I’m not a patient person when it comes to books…..but then I got to the end and I felt the need to contact the writer to make sure that we weren’t going to be left hanging…I may have used the words “cracking the whip”. Of course, I now know better than to ask when a book is due out… However, I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to read the omnibus edition in advance of release.

This starts with something of a slow burn. Kat, on her own in Paris. No hint of Alek or Amarok. But the pace picks up nicely and I became gloriously immersed in the story. I’m not going to give anything away, save to say that there are more than a couple of surprises, and points in the book where I may have gasped out loud. And the ending? WEll, lets just say that I hope that the next episode isnt too long in the writing! (no pressure!) 4.5* I received an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

    This second part of the Dark Child series starts with Kat’s story in Paris, but we also get another POV, that of a half-blood vampire-human teenager, Ben, who is crushing on a girl that’s off limits for him. This ensures a faster pace for the story as we jump from the US to Europe from chapter to chapter, but it left me a bit confused as to the target audience of this novel. I’d classify Kat’s story as adult paranormal fantasy but Ben’s parts clearly deal with issues otherwise found in YA (and a This second part of the Dark Child series starts with Kat’s story in Paris, but we also get another POV, that of a half-blood vampire-human teenager, Ben, who is crushing on a girl that’s off limits for him. This ensures a faster pace for the story as we jump from the US to Europe from chapter to chapter, but it left me a bit confused as to the target audience of this novel. I’d classify Kat’s story as adult paranormal fantasy but Ben’s parts clearly deal with issues otherwise found in YA (and are also less graphic, not that there are many graphic scenes in Kat’s part, but still). I liked that the story took a more nefarious turn, what with the Directorate moving in on the hybrids and their families and the ominously powerful witches making their stand. Kat is put smack in the middle of the conflict due to her heritage – and she wants nothing to do with it. I liked Kat’s parts better – probably because I already knew her story from the previous book, which made it easier to connect with her. But there’s a part of Kat’s story that bothered me a lot: she’s one of those “chosen” characters, a reincarnation of a goddess, heir to an all-powerful witchy family, has THIRTEEN strong, sexy men pledging their undying allegiance to her, can influence others with her will, and more. The only thing that saves this problem from overwhelming the story is the fact that Kat is remarkably unimpressed by all these people trying to stash her into their pre-determined roles and fights her “destiny” on every turn. She’s uncomfortable with the responsibility and power that is thrust her way. And a word on her grandmother: I know not everyone’s grandma bakes cookies and offers warm hugs, but Kat’s grandmother is one scary, manipulative lady. Again, I really like that Kat doesn’t just roll over and let her have her way. Read the entire review at my book blog, Of Dragons and Hearts.

    This series of serial novels must be read in order. The omnibus of book one is Dark Child (The Awakening): Omnibus Edition. This is the omnibus of book two. Kat seems to be acquiring acoylets wherever she goes lately. There's her waiter at the café she goes for lunch every day (though he's human at least) and now Jonathan is lurking outside her window every night...

There's her waiter at the café she goes for lunch every day (though he's human at least) and now Jonathan is lurking outside her window every night... Which is a good thing for her when regular human blood no longer seeks to cut it... The changes to Kat's life seem to be happening more and more quickly. What do they mean? Is she turning? Why is her blood not sensitive to sunlight like other hybrid's? What is she going to do? The revelations in this series just keep on coming! Finding out she really isn't human and never has been had to be a shock to say the least. Finding out she was of the Families had to be mind blowing especially as she had not a clue her mom wasn't human to begin with. Now all she needs to do is figure out how to use her powers when she WANTS to instead of hoping she will be able to if she NEEDS to! The learning curve alone is astoundingly incomprehensible! The addition of new characters and the revisiting of older minor ones really fleshes out this book and makes the world seem much more realistic and diverse. There seems to be more of a drive to this book as Kat becomes more comfortable and owns her diverse heritage instead of being afraid all of the time. It is nice to see her trusting her instincts more as she finds her footing within her new expanded reality. If you liked the last five episodes you will love these five episodes even more!!! I know I did and I have no clue how I am going to live without Kat and her companions until the next series of serials comes out some time next year!!! ***This serial novel series is suitable for mature young adult through adult

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This series is just getting better and better. Where else can you get a love triangle that isn't annoying, a main character who is a wonderful balance of tough and vulnerable, and some really unique vampire/shifter world building? I've got this author on my must read list. Dark Child: Covens Rising picks up where we last left Kat. She's in Paris, hiding out, pretending to be dead.

I've got this author on my must read list. Dark Child: Covens Rising picks up where we last left Kat. She's in Paris, hiding out, pretending to be dead. There's a growing concern about her impending transition, but she does a good job of hiding most of the signs from her caretakers. Jonathan, who we used to hate, ends up coming in very handy for Kat and her deception. Kat's many suitors end up resurfacing in this one pretty early on, giving us some wonderful sexual tension, resolving any misunderstandings pretty easily, and reigniting rivalry for her affections. Poor Kat is torn between even more worlds than before in this one. Not only is she struggling to balance between the shifters and vampires, but she's also introduced to a new element in the families of power (aka witches). The big bad is still the Vodas, but we're not quite sure where all these new characters will end up on the spectrum of good and evil. I really enjoyed getting new faces in Ben and Yara. I can't wait to see their completely messed up YA romance goes in the future. This series is addictive and amazing. If you haven't read Dark Child: The Awakening, and you have even a remote interest in paranormal books -- what are you waiting for?? This series will knock your socks off and keep you reading late into the night.

    Dark Child (Awakening) is the first in this series. You will want to read it first to understand the series better.  Adina does go over what had happened in the first books but not everything is explained. This is a new way of looking at the paranormal world. There is not the normal vampires and weres that are usually described, it is a refreshing new twist of Tabérin (like vampires), Unalil (like weres that change into different animals but drink blood also), and The Families of Power (witches) Dark Child (Awakening) is the first in this series.

In Coven Rising we see Kat taking on more of the Tabérin role in her blood.  Meaning she is having to drink more blood.  Kat doesn’t believe that she is something powerful but everyone else does. She wants to make sure everyone is safe. We will also meet Ben and Yara. I think they are going to be a part of the big picture in the end. Kat kept getting bracelets as gifts by males that were Tabérin and Unalil. We find out what exactly that means and is meant by their people. I feel sorry for Kat sense she still doesn’t really understand everything that is going on with her or her life. Every one keeps saying they know what is best for her. But they are looking out fortheir own people.  We kept learning more about her that most didn’t know about her. I certainly cannot wait for the next part.

Kat is a half vampire/half human. She is in Paris looking for a fresh start a long way from those who want her dead. She wants to leave her past behind but we don’t always get what we want. The hybrids are being picked off and we learn a lot about Kat. She is not human and never was. She also learns her mother wasn’t a human either. She has to learn to control her powers and make them work for her. I really like Kat’s character. She is strong and has grown so much. She is still learning new things about herself. These stories are in a type of world that I just can’t get enough of. I keep wanting to know what will happen next and that to me is the makings of a great book. I gave this paranormal fantasy 5 bright shining stars. I look forward to the next book. You can find this review on Amazon and my Twitter feed as well.

    I received this book from NetGalley for review This book was a little bit of a mess for me. The story didn't flow as well, and the addition of different character perspective felt a little out or place, and felt disconnected from the rest of the story. Kat was pretty naive and that got her into a lot of trouble, I wish more characters wouldn't try and be invincible and not ask for help when things were confusing. There is no shame in asking for help. I started to care less about the characters wit I received this book from NetGalley for review This book was a little bit of a mess for me.

There is no shame in asking for help. I started to care less about the characters with each chapter, and the more dumb things Kat decided to do, or not to do. There was also a lot of confusing information dumping rather than the smooth transition of receiving information like in the first book. I am undecided if I'll finish this series when its completed.
