Night Tastings by Bervi Adams: 19th Century Russian vampires seize the lives of a lower-level aristocrat named Nikolai and his love, Tatianya, as they voyage to Mardi Gras and Napa Valley and beyond to escape their doom!
This is a Spoiler Free** book review of Night Tastings: Part 1 The Ingress in an upcoming paranormal vampire trilogy By Bervi Adams.
I was fortunate to receive an ARC of this brilliant book, and a sample of the audiobook, which has a fantastic narrator and the perfect accent for this world and time-spanning tale.
The voice, vampires, and vivid, romantic world give Night Tastings an Anne Rice Interview With The Vampire-like feel.
If you like a bit of horror and history and heading back to the Czarist regime of the 19th century to meet compelling characters beset by their societal obligations whose lives are crashed upon by a vampire promising power beyond any Nikolai can imagine, then this is a read worth endeavoring in.
Nikolai, a lower-level aristocrat, appeared to only be missing a wife and heir, and, Tatianya, the duke’s youngest daughter, unknowingly manages to tame the wild man’s heart – at least until the coming of the vampire.
If you have a romantic purvey and a lust for blood spanning time and seas, then Night Tastings is a tasty read.
From the author: Bervi Adams is thrilled to be publishing Night Tastings: The Ingress, part one of a trilogy that has been a long time coming to fruition. She is the mother of two grown children, one living abroad. When not delving into the depths of her imagination, she enjoys travel, shelling, wine tasting and just being with family friends and most of all, her favorite guy. Her fondest wish is for you to enjoy the first in this series as much as she enjoyed crafting this tale of romance, treachery and yes, even redemption.
