Dahlia (Blood Crave Book # 1) by Christina Channelle
Publication Date: December 21,2012
Genre: YA Paranormal

Blurb:

What would you do if your dreams were more than just dreams?

When you knew in the depths of your soul that you were unlike the rest?

For seventeen-year-old Dahlia Winters, this is her truth. Her coping mechanism is to simply forget and deny the strangeness that is her life. Orphaned, her past remains a mystery. Now residing with a foster family, she finally feels normal--or attempts to. Yet, dreams continue to torment her. Not only consumed by visions of miraculously healing wounds, but of a lust for something she should never naturally crave.

Then a green-eyed stranger enters her life echoing her inner thoughts and voicing warnings about others wanting to harm her. He knows things about her that no one should possibly know, and he awakens her in ways she never expected.

This leads Dahlia to discover who she really is, for she is more than justhuman. With this newfound knowledge, and the elements suddenly fighting against her, she finds it hard to trust anyone. And as she finally awakens and comes to grips with the power she possesses, she fights to stay alive.

Before the world, as she knows it, ceases to exist.

Dahlia (Blood Crave #1) by Christina Channelle



The title of the book is similar to the main character's name who is apparently, Dahlia. Dahlia has showed to the readers the following events of her life as she discovers about her unique abilities as an individual.

Dahlia is a character who, to me, has appealing qualities even though she is the type of character who keeps to herself most of the time. I could understand what's like to live her life as I could see myself reflected in her. As a reader, I could relate to how she felt through the pages which is neat, and that she made me feel I'm not alone.

I enjoyed Dahlia, although I have to mention that quite a few scenes happened all at once that has gotten a little unorganized, in my opinion. The book written in third perspective which gives readers the chance to have insight on situations the characters faced. The novel itself has a potential. The story that it carries will definitely pull readers into a world, surrounding paranormal and romance.


(Actual) rating: 3 of 5 stars

Fallen Tears (Blood Crave # 1.5) by Christina Channelle
Genre: YA Paranormal
Publication Date: January 25, 2013

Blurb:

We left off from DAHLIA with only a name--a name that is the next piece to the puzzle. A name that will eventually, "lead us to him." But before we delve into the continuation of the Blood Crave Series, let's answer the question that's been on all our minds.

Who is Rowan?

This 21,000 word novella answers that question, and of how Rowan has come to know the vampire with pitch-black eyes.

Rowan (Blood Crave Series # 2) by Christina Channelle
Publication Date: April 1, 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal

Blurb:

Dark. Night. Death.

Things Rowan has been trying to avoid for the many years since she was first turned. Her choice: to sleep away the darkness; it beats having to deal with the craziness of life. Or rather, death. However soon after awakening, she stumbles upon a lone figure whose presence is shrouded with mystery.

She assists him in his search for answers making it even more difficult for Rowan to forget her past. She realizes she can’t hide forever as she is literally being sucked back into her chaotic world: a world where both fallen angels and vampires exist, manifested on earth as lapsus and lamia.

Not particularly … friendly with one another.

Rowan struggles to resist her hunger as a demon vampire while dealing with unwanted desires for a fallen angel from the past: a relationship that could only spell trouble. Not to mention the unresolved feelings she still has for a loved one from long ago.

While all of this is happening, they must all seek the hidden evil that hunts them—for there’s an ancient fighting to wake up and destroy everything Rowan holds dear.
