REVIEW: Of a Darker Nature by Michelle Clay

Title: Of a Darker Nature
Author: Michelle Clay

With just one touch, Emily Cross can read the memories of the deceased. Working at a funeral home might not be the logical choice, but for Emily, it is a natural one. When she and her boss are attacked, the creatures she once thought were only folklore become all too real. Just as she’s about to be drained of life, the cadaver on the next table rises and fights them off. Feeling a connection to the man who saved her life, she makes it her mission to find him. As she delves deeper, she discovers a dark underworld full of vampires, magic and shape shifters. 

Marcus Dane doesn’t know how he ended up in a mortuary. As an Enforcer for the Mistress of the City, he has been following leads regarding a powerful witch who wants to exterminate his blood-clan. His fear that the witch has recruited some of his fellow Enforcers is confirmed and now it looks as though the witch will make her threats real. He counts himself lucky to escape the mortician, because someone in the mortuary business disposes of vampires who are unfortunate enough to cross his table. 

When it all comes down to it, Emily now has a vampire she’s romantically entangled with, a very angry Mistress who doesn’t like other people playing with her toys, and an incredibly powerful witch who realizes killing Emily is the gateway to what she wants. By the end, Emily will have to figure out who she can trust, who she has to align with even if she doesn’t trust them, and just who has the darkest nature of all

My Rating:

My Review:
Michelle Clay doesn't waste anytime getting the action started. We have just met Emily Cross when all of the sudden she is in the middle of a situation that really shouldn't have anything to do with her. Unfortunately for her, because she finds herself in the situation, her secret is out. 

I loved Emily's reaction evertime she came in contact with Marcus. No matter what her initial plan was, she always ended up succumbing to the passion between them. She definitely added some great comic relief to the story. 

Emily has a great support team. They however have very strong initial opinions about her involvement with Marcus. Emily has to figure out who to trust, and whether she should act on her feelings for a certain vampire or not. 

Great addition to the Paranormal Romance Genre. Clay writes a story full of passion, suspense, and vividness that keep the reader on the edge of their seat!
