Sinners’ Obsession by Linda Nightingale
Warning: Contains adult situations and vampire/human hybrids
Sinners’ Obsession by Linda Nightingale is a story about a mother looking for a cure to her daughter’s genetic flaw before her daughter goes mad. What’s the genetic flaw? She’ll go mad. Why? She’s a human/vampire hybrid. I didn’t realize that this book was in the middle of a series, but the previous histories and conflicts between characters were explained fairly well and I was able to keep everything straight. Although not necessarily a negative point, for a book that spans nineteen years, the author just jumps over most of them to focus on the important stuff.
What I liked:
I’m a horse person and the author depicted the horses and riding scenes correctly, which is not always easy to do.
Morgan and Isabeau’s relationship. You can genuinely feel the love they have for each other and their daughter.
Morgan and Eroica’s relationship. The father-daughter relationship was depicted really well and it was really sweet. Morgan spoiled his daughter and they had a great relationship.
Avery. He was such a great character and kept the family together very well. He was much more than a servant to Morgan.
What I didn’t like:
The human/vampire hybrid child. I firmly believe that because vampires are undead, they cannot reproduce. Eroica also didn’t have any issues when it came to being part vampire except for one minor freak out.
How fast Isabeau took Morgan back. Again, I didn’t read the first book, so maybe she resisted him a lot more fiercely, but it felt like one minute she was determined to never see him again and in the next chapter, she was calling Avery, the butler, so he can help her move back into Morgan’s house.
Also, the family was hard to cheer on. They lived as a perfect, rich, beautiful family and hardly had any conflict until the last 1/4 of the book. It just made reading dull.
The writing was a bit awkwardly phrased and made it hard for me to finish.
My Rating: 1.4/5
Creature Feature: 2/5
