Five (4.5) Boundless Stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I am so glad I accepted this one! It’s different from the unusual dark world stories; in such a wonderful way. I can already tell the Night World Series is going to be one of those surprise-around-every-corner series. The characters are well developed; each has a personality expressed perfectly through the writing, along with the some hilarious banter in their conversations. Lady of the Dead has suspense, action, romance, and friendship bonds like none other. I rate Lady of the Dead: Night World Series Book 1 with 4.5 Boundless Stars. I really loved it! I look forward to more of the Night World Series from Gretchen.
