Four Days of Willow Day One!

Welcome one and all to DAY ONE of Willow!
Are you excited??? I'm totally stoked!
Why? Because for one, Willow Cross is absolutely amazing
Oh yeah! *happy dance*
Lets get started!
Birthright (Book I in The Dark Gifts series)

For one-thousand years, Druid prophecies foretold of a young witch destined to alter the fate of both human and immortal alike. This witch-turned-vampire would be capable of harnessing the supernatural abilities of both and, in a bloody rise to power, would rule with unwavering control.

Unwillingly thrust into a world she never dreamed existed, Liz Markum is catapulted into an ancient war between rival vampire factions. She must choose between those she loves and the ever-present darkness attempting to devour her very soul.

Only one question remains: Will Liz claim her birthright or surrender to the dark gift?

One choice.

One chance.

                                                           Two destinies.

Okay, so do you love Vampires? Romance? Epic battles?
Then this book is totally for you!
Forget about the 'sparkly' vampires and all the vampire hoopla that make them seem more cuddly than fearsome!
In Birthright, we go back to the roots of vampirism!
That's right, were talking about fierce little blood suckers, blood feuds, and things that truly do go bump in the night!
Immediately, you get thrown into the story.  Feels almost like a whiplash. No smooth entry into it, just BAM! There you are!
Now, sometimes that doesn't work and only leads readers into mass confusion and chaos,
but Willow does it in a way that allows readers to get the whole story without causing your head to spin like a top.
Now, I've read all the reviews for it and theres some that I want to address. One person said there's too many characters involved in the story.... umm no, there's not.
The storyline in itself is long, complicated and involved.  (Hello, we're talking about the complete
HISTORY of vampires is revealed... that's a pretty BIG thing and since vampires are IMMORTAL, well, you get the picture. Lots of old vampy characters.)
Some said it doesn't have enough romance.....
I could see your point there if you're looking for your average paranormal romance....
But this ISN'T your average paranormal romance!
This is a bloody, complicated, aggressive, addicting piece of work!
If you're looking for a whole bunch of fluffy fru fru romances with not much else involved I can point you to a TON of those.
Now, there is a certain type of beautiful savagery to the story that some people may not get, and that may detract from the story for them. *shrugs* sucks to be you ;) lol
There's really not much more I can say about the story without giving out spoilers because, as I said, its long, complicated and involved.
What I can say tho in a totally non spoiler way is:
Now, the time that most of you only come here for,
And this ones flipping awesome!
3 Winners!
