REVIEW: King of Darkness by Elisabeth Staab

Publisher Synopsis:

This first book in a hot, edgy, dark paranormal romance series from a debut author has all the right stuff: a deep urban fantasy feel, a take-no-crap tough heroine and a sexy, arrogant vampire king who gets his comeuppance. 

Isabel Anthony has lived a carefree existence masquerading as human, but when this party-girl meets the king of vampires, her world turns deep, dark, and dangerous double-quick. Thad Morgan is looking for the prophesied mate who will unlock his powers. But when he finally finds Isabel in a seedy nightclub, he thinks fate must have gotten it wrong.

My Rating: More of a 3.5

My Review:
This was a good debut from Elisabeth Staab. 

Isabel is definitely the independent type and does not want to be anyone's mate. Thad often came off whiny to me. I don't like that in my heroes! 

The overall story concept is executed well. The heat between the two main characters is definitely more than believable. 

In this world there are Vampires with Wizards as there number one enemy.

One of my main problems with this book was that often times Lee and Lexi seemed to overpower Thad and Isabel. I found myself not very interested in the Tyra/Anton combo. Maybe that will develop better in the future.

If the next book focuses on Lee and Lexi I am definitely in! 

Overall great for a debut!
