Dark Embrace (Dark Gothic #6) by Eve Silver
Review: I was excited when I started this Dark Gothic series because so far, book one and two pulled my interest right away. And the summary to the final book in the series, Dark Embrace, was a bit mysterious and dark. It pulled my attention and quickly became my next book to read in the series. Yes, I know. I’m reading out of order for this series, but its okay. For the Dark Gothic series, every book stands o its own and does not need to be read in order.
Anyway, after reading book one and book three, the series seemed to just keep getting better and better. Dark Embrace, the sixth and final book of the series, pulled my interest with its summary. Apparently this was a mistake, reading this book was a trial, the only reason I kept pushing through was because I thought everything would be explained away and get better plot wise. But, no, this is not like the rest of the series, its a vampire love story and not a good either.
I was so disappointed that the dark Gothic romance of the series was sorely lacking, and it seemed as if the author was trying to make this book to be something completely different from the rest. It was a nice try on the author’s part, but it was way too dull to read most of the book. There was also the added part of certain sections being from the male love interests vampire beginnings point of view, sad to say but I was very un-interested. I did end up reading another one of the Dark Gothic series to help me get back into my binge obsession of this series, but sadly the reading of this book pulled me completely out of it.
I want a life well lived, she whispered. One that matters.
Would I? Reread? No. Recommend to others? Not this book in the series. Read more from this author? I might read more of this series, as long as they are nothing like this one.

Summary: Left penniless and alone by the untimely death of her father, Sarah Lowell works as a day nurse at King’s College Hospital. Her daily walk to and from work crosses the Rookery of St. Giles, a dangerous place made all the more frightening by the fact that someone lurks in the shadows, watching Sarah, stalking her like a beast of prey.
Enigmatic surgeon Killian Thayne offers Sarah his protection, but his sensual, commanding presence presents another kind of danger. Killian wears his professionalism like a mask, concealing the darkness buried in his soul. He is drawn to Sarah, lured by her intellect, her dry wit, and yes, her loneliness, for it calls to his own.
Then a patient is found dead, drained of blood. Another soon follows, and another, and rumors paint Killian as the monster who killed them. As evidence mounts and the threatening presence that stalks her draws ever nearer, Sarah must decide if Killian is a man deserving of her love or a sinister creature determined to make her his next victim.
