Bitter Fruits by Sarah Daltry Review
Author: Sarah Daltry
For fans of dark urban fantasy comes a novel that questions why forbidden fruit is always the most tempting...
A vampire-themed masquerade party isn’t really her scene, but Nora is sick of frat parties and bars. When she meets Alec, the appeal suddenly becomes clear. It’s obvious that they’ve been struck by the same intense mutual attraction, but Alec keeps his distance. Intrigued despite herself, Nora pushes a little deeper — and discovers Alec’s unimaginable secret...
Nora is not afraid of following Alec into the darkness, but the choice is soon taken from her. Someone is hunting her — someone tied to the secret and desperate to see it play out. But when Nora finally meets her aggressor, she finds herself hopelessly drawn to him. She needs to make a choice between the two men, but can she save them both, knowing one is destined to die?
After reading this book I believe that the Eden's Fall series is off to a great start! I was impressed with the old bible story reinvented and told with a twist. I thought it was unique and not a lot of authors even want to go there, but Sarah Daltry did and I thought she nailed it.
I read a few other reviews on the book after I finished it (what can I say, I hate spoilers) and I honestly couldn't see what other reviewers were writing about. Nora's character is extremely well developed. I felt that I got introduced to someone completely in her character. Her thoughts, feelings, desires, and trials were in the book for every one.
All in all, I thought it was an excellent read and I honestly can't wait to see book #2 come out! The way Sarah Daltry writes is sure only to improve and I feel each book in the series will get better and better with time.
