Karla Altaf's Review:
Found family is oftentimes more loving, accepting and protective than blood family. Even when the found family are vampires.
Ancient is a twisting and turning carnival ride of fantasy, intrigue, and romance. A human who has no idea the power he possesses is saved by an unlikely and tormented hero. Learning to fit into his new family, Adam learns how to accept himself and to accept that things are not always what they seem. This pigtail pulling story will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Rating: 5 Stars
Miki J's Review:
Just when you are tired of the vampire stories …… something new and interesting comes along …
We have one very very ancient vampire who is just tired of the world in general and is ready to “rest” for a couple of centuries when he comes across Adam, who he then “saves” and that’s when the story really gets interesting. Just to point out - the first few chapters are from Adam’s POV and it’s not pretty – definitely triggers here.
I didn’t quite feel the romantic connection between Adam and Neku (vampire)….. the right words were said, but it just seemed somewhat disconnected. Having said that, this book isn’t so much about the romance between them ….. it’s more about the overall story – the threat in the background and the plot twists (there are a few !!) and how everything is connected. This story did keep me well entertained ….but it does end on a cliff-hanger. Ah well….onto Book # 2 !
