Book Review

The Dark Heroine


I first read about it in the Wall Street Journal as an example of a self-published book that did well enough to be picked up by a mainstream publisher, which then offered the author a contract for future work. When I learned it was a vampire story, I bought it instantly.  I love vampire books and have read a slew of them, but I don’t think I’ve read one quite as colorful or imaginative as The Dark Heroine.  And the backstory of the author?  She was 14 when she started writing this – that’s right, 14 years old.  She is currently 18 and a student at Oxford, which I hope won’t teach her that vampire fiction is bad.

This book has a strong heroine, always key for me.  If you’re in the mood for well written, paranormal fun, try The Dark Heroine.
