    3. You can read this review and more on my blog:I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest reviewWell, I finally did it! I read a vampire book!Since I'm new to this entire sub genre, I'm going to be reviewing it from that point a view. I have nothing to compare it to other than a few television shows and movies, but Sunkissed wasn't what I was expecting. I thought that it was going to be a light read, but it was very dark and gritty at times. When our story begins, Dawn is at dea [...]

    5. 3 1/2 Stars.Disclosure: I received a review copy from the author in exchange for a honest review.The year is 1853 and 17-year-old Dawn Summers is dying from the common cold/flu. Although, this is nothing new as many people and Dawn’s two other siblings have died because there wasn't an accessible doctor or medicine around. But luckily or not so lucky Dr. Moralus the village recluse, a fairly new resident of Fandova is around this time, and Dawn’s Fiance Thomas is willing to brave the night t [...]

    6. *Received from author in exchange for an honest review*The cover has a lot of fire themed colours, maybe symbolising the sun and the danger it can cause a vampire, whether they are able to withstand it or not.In 1853, 17-year-old Dawn Summers is dying, with her mother unwilling to help her she must slowly die in pain and suffering. Until her fiancé, Thomas, sends for Dr. Moralus who only awakens and comes to help the weak in the hours of night, no matter how desperate someone gets during the da [...]

    7. This novel was a mash-up of Twilight, Dracula and the Blade movies.The vampires have similar traits to the Twilight wimps, but are as cold and vicious as Dracula, and form societies who live within large cities run with the help of Familiars under the noses of the humans like Blade. I'm of Dracula. Yes, the whole vampire thing is part of it, but I think the build up to the realization from the characters of what Dr. Moralus is might really be what reminds me of the classic. For sure, it isn't wr [...]

    8. The story is set in a place called Fandova and the date is 1853. A young girl called Dawn is seriously ill and is in fact on her death bed, where she is having visions of her late father.

    10. 3.5 stars. This is a story about vampires, which is obvious from quite early on so I’m not really giving anything away in mentioning that. Although I’ve watched Interview with a Vampire and the excellent Being Human (UK) I’ve never read a vampire story so this was a definite leap into the unknown for me. It gets off to a slow start but a lot of that is scene and character setting so it is necessary but once the actual vampire part starts properly the feel and pace of the story changes. Daw [...]

    11. Immediately, I took a shining to Sunkissed. Carys seemed to write so effortlessly of the past; 1853, to the point where the imagery of the characters and scenes of the plot seemed to spring to life inside my mind, which is quite rare for me when I'm reading. In Fandova, there's only solution for getting any sort of medical attention, which is from Dr. Moralus. It's from here that I was quite intrigued by the different ways of Vampires coming about and being introduced into the plot, instead of t [...]

    13. Sometimes you have to fight for the things that matter most.An exciting adventure that you won't be able to put down! The story had me riveted from the very beginning with the beautiful imagery and charismatic characters. There was always a bit of mystery shrouding the characters in the beginning and I had a great time figuring everyone out. The mystery and action were well done and had me on the edge of my seat in anticipation of the next turn of the page.Dawn is a strong and courageous girl wh [...]

    14. I wanted to like this one, I really did. The premise sounds interesting, and it does have promise. I justuldn't.I don't know exactly what it is about this book, but it gives me the feeling of "blech" and makes me want to stick out my tongue. It may be the fact it's cliche and not terribly original. It could be the fact it seems way too dramatic for the story given. It could be the incredibly annoying set of male characters. Whatever it is though, I just didn't like it all that much.It would have [...]

    15. I liked this book, it was a nice read. Part of the story is set in the 1850\s and part of it is set in present day. This is a romance but it's more about running and hiding.The story is mainly about dawn and her escape from the man she once intended to marry. But there is also a mystery around her that she herself is mystified by. She is something unheard of and because of it she is hunted and wanted. She spends all her Life running and hiding, both from her ex fiancé and from the vampire's in [...]

    17. I read this book as part of the blog tour.How far would you go to save the one you love? This was the question that entered my mind not long after I started Sunkissed. I also couldn’t help but notice the mysterious atmosphere, it felt dark without me being able to establish exactly why it felt that way.Dawn and Thomas were a curious couple who became caught up in something sinister. I was particularly interested to see where it would lead them as they both seemed to have a very different view [...]

    18. This is a genre of book that I am experimenting with, it’s safe to say that vampires are usually only my sort of ‘thing’ on TV but I have begun to feel as though I may be missing something by actively avoiding any books. The cover of Sunkissed is gorgeous & was enough to tempt me to dip my toe in the water so to speak.We meet Dawn a young girl who is dying & her fiancé Thomas urges the rather creepy Dr. Moralus to do whatever it takes to keep her alive. We move between the 1850’ [...]

    19. This book is obviously about Vampires. I must say I enjoyed this book I read it in a couple of days. I found it an interesting and enjoyable read. This is a story about Dawn’s battle to retain her humanity and Thomas decision not to bother with it. It leaves things enough up in the air to allow for a sequel or more to continue the story about Dawn, Ryan, Thomas & Dr Moralus. I would be interested in reading any sequel that is written. Sunkissed is a well thought out book, with a good plot [...]

    20. I absolutely loved this book. I was interesting and kept my attention. I know if I will love a book within the first chapter. And I loved this one. It starts with Dawn Summers on her death bed and her beloved Thomas trying anything he can save to her life. But then there are so many twists and turns, that in the end Thomas is the one trying to take her life.The book was well written and a joy to read. I loved the character of Dawn. She was a compassionate, loving, smart and strong young woman. I [...]

    21. I received this book to review and since Vampires are not my schtick was hoping I could provide a fair review for the author. The story opens up with Thomas, a distressed fiance poised at the deathbed of his beloved Dawn. The year is 1853 and the only Doctor in town is feared instead of revered. As the young woman's family prepares for her death, Thomas refuses to give up and seeks the aid of the mysterious Doctor. From here the story twists and eventually fast forward to present day.Without giv [...]

    22. You can not put this book downI read everyday and slot of the time a book will start to get boring in the middle. This book however kept me up til 3am . I could not put it down. It was a perfect mix of love and paranormal. It was not too over the top on paranormal or love . I would let and child read it or recommended to my adult friends. Very well done

    23. Dawn is dying in 1853 and a mysterious doctor, who is allergic to sunlight and possesses a cure that involve bloodletting is asked to save her. Before you can say “vampire”, Dawn is feeling much better. This is a well-written, fast paced story with sympathetic, interesting characters. 3 stars. "Review by *Kami Bryant* of FaeBooks"

    24. Great Read!!Loved the storyline on this book. The characters were fantastic can't wait for the second book hope it will keep me wanting to finish the book a n d not put down until completed. I would recommend this book to all my reading circle.

    25. I just couldn't get into this one. I kept trying - there was definitely a foundation. My problem was that I was 40% in and still felt like I was at the foundation. Had to give up, but may try again someday.

    26. Average vampire love story with a slight twist. Quite a few spelling and grammar mistakes which was annoying. Readable but not memorable - sorry.

    27. One and a half stars. Not that compelling of a story, did not hold my interest, did not have any kind of conclusion.
