Publisher's Summary

Sophie Galen is an advice columnist whose work leaves her neck-deep in other people's problems. Thanks to her compassion, her gut instinct, and her magnetic charm, Sophie really knows how to attract little black clouds.
Marek Thurzo is no little black cloud; he's a maelstrom. Marek is Demivampire, a race with the potential to evolve into vampire. A warrior who's taken his share of spiritual damage, he hovers dangerously close to destruction.
He seeks salvation. She's driven to save him. But what if he can't be saved?
Sympathy for his plight becomes true empathy as Sophie's hidden nature is revealed. Marek suspects she may be one of the Sophia, oracle and redemption of the damned Demivampire. She alone can turn back the evolutionary clock.
All she needs is the courage to face her fears. Can she save him from falling?

A very entertaining listen

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was an entertaining, if slow starting, story with some action and good dialog. I liked the main character, she was strong and snarky. The author does a good job of world building and the narrator brings this book to life in your imagination. I felt the balance between the romance aspects of the story and the paranormal were well done. I'd definitely be open to more in this series.

Advice columnist turned supernatural helper

Sophia is an advice columnist that’s great at giving others advice but not great at love even with being best friends with an ex boyfriend of her childhood that turned into a priest. Suddenly she’s thrown into a world she never knew existed with a power she never fully knew. The only downfalls of this book there are times she’s made to look probably a little too weak and the guy she meets is a bit too much especially being jealous of her past. Overall an interesting story.

Advice columnist for the supernatural?

This was a new author to me and she delivers a solid first book in this series that is set in a world of vampires, demivampires and other supernatural monsters.

While some of the usual fantasy tropes of a chosen one being thrown into a new world, the dark and brooding love interest crop up in this book, they don't detract from a story that is centred around Sophie Galen who is a likable and interesting main character. The mechanics of demivampires being a race that eventually become soulless vampires once they have done a sufficient amount of spiritual damage to their own soul works well and is the main underlying theme for her interaction with this supernatural world.

The narrator gave a good performance, choosing a pleasant tone for the main character and making the voices of the rest of the supporting cast sufficiently distinctive to avoid disrupting the flow of the story.

Overall, this was a good start to this series and I will certainly consider checking out the subsequent books at some point.
