    One thought on “Koven”

    1. Koven, Vanessa Skye's new Paranormal book, the start of a series or trilogy or something, is a rather interesting read. With some of the vampire norms (drinking blood, fangs, heightened sexual desire etc.), and some new ones, the book takes the reader on a twisted little ride through Celeste's past and present all filled with danger. I liked Celeste, I liked Striker too, our male lead, but I felt their 'relationship' was a bit rushed (bordering on insta-love), and while there were complexities, [...]

It all sounds so simple, but when intrigue and powerful forces come into play, it changes the game they're both playing.Before I go any further - I bloody loved this book!

    5. Koven is a novel by Vanessa Skye. This book brought the vampire world to a whole other level, I absolutely love what she did with it and I was hooked from the beginning. This was a very well thought out and written book with great detail in all parts of the story. Celeste and Striker are awesome characters that grow tremendously during this book and i couldn't have been rooting for a more deserving couple. Being a woman myself I love strong female roles when reading, and let me just say that Cel [...]

    6. *This book has been provided by the publisher/author to me for an honest review.Let me just tell you that I have not read a vampire book with so much action, true fighting formation and blood lust in a while. The Vampire Lore is a little unique from the norm but was well developed and exquisitely executed.Stricker is a handsome and faithful vampire leader to the Koven. True to his own tortured past but honest and honorable to the Koven Organization. He is has been set to seek out a vampire that [...]

    7. "Koven" by Vanessa Skye, is not your typical Vampire novel. From the very first page, you're drawn into a world of mystery and intrigue as you follow Striker, the leader of Koven, on his mission to purge the city of rogues, and to learn more about the mysterious Celeste. Celeste catches Striker's eye and his fancy, but in his determination to gain her as a member of Koven and learn her history, he comes to find she is more than a pretty face who can fight battles with skills to match and best th [...]

    8. Koven is a new novel by Vanessa Skye. She is known for well-developed characters that take you for a ride in the dark and twisted while sucking you into her character's world. Koven is no different. She has brought us a vampire world that is different and intriguing. I loved her badass heroine with her cocky attitude. Celeste has had a troubled past and makes you want to root for her and Striker, the hot leader of the vampire Koven, as their story develops. I love paranormal romance and characte [...]

    9. I received a copy from the publisher for an honest review. Celeste was sold to a brothel as a teenager by her parents. A vampire become obsessed with her and while continuously beating her and her trying to kill herself eventually turned her into a vampire as well. Once she kills her Maker she spends her nights killing rogue vampires preying on humans while trying to find vampires that belong to Kovenant.Striker has been a vampire for almost 4 centuries.

    10. Koven was a world full of vampires where nothing is what it seems. There are traders in the mist of Striker’s Koven and a woman who he cant stop thinking about. Vanessa Skye did a create job creating a world of vampires and the traditions they had. I haven’t read a vampire novel, which had kovens and become apart of the koven. Stricker’s Koven is full of tradition and even know he doesn’t agree with some things the kouncil does, he keeps traditions alive, but what he doesn’t know is th [...]

    11. I received this book from the author herself as a give away. Not my usual genre. I have read books about vampires before but not what can be termed a paranormal romance. The fact that i enjoyed this book is down to two main reasons. Firstly the excellence of Ms.Skye's writing and the fast moving plot. Once you get used to vampires texting and using mobile phones it is great. And i mean why shouldn't they? they live a very long time if not actually being immortal. That is another thing that appe [...]

    12. Vampires were originated by a virus in the beginning. They became stronger and lived longer then humans. There is a hierarchy in the vampire world.There is the Kouncil which were the elders and they held the most power, There was also Koven who were warrior vampires that protect the vampire world from rogue vampires and led by Striker who was four centuries old. Rogues were created without the Kounsils permission and didn’t follow the Kouncil’s rules. Celeste had been sold as a teenager by h [...]

    13. So I received this ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I totally enjoyed this book. In some way it reminded me of the Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series, but totally in a great way. Koven has the makings of a great new series!!!A century ago after Celeste's mother sold her to a brothel she was singled out and then kidnapped and turned by cruel, sadistic master vampire. His mistake was that he thought he broke her, he told Celeste about his plans for the vam [...]
