A Touch Of Crimson: Sylvia Day, Book review.

Hello my book lovers out there, today I am bringing you a new series by Sylvia Day, this book was suggested to me on my Instagram account as I love fantasy books.
This book includes vampires, Angels, Seraphim and many other “breeds”, each character has evolved by making bad/good mistakes.

The two main characters in this book are Lindsay Gibson and Adrian Mitchell.   At first they seem completely unalike, but this took me by suprise as they are in fact drawn together by Adrians old lover.

Adrian Mitchell is an angel of immense power and an insatiable desire for the one women he can’t have.  The head of an elite unit of the Seraphim, his task is to punish the fallen – Angels who have become vampires – and command a restless pack of indentured lycans.  Now, nearly two hundred years after losing the love of his life, Adrian has found his beloved Shadoe, her soul inhabiting a new body with no memory of him.

Lindsay Gibson can’t resist her fierce atraction to the seductive male who crosses her path.  Swept into a dangerous world of tumultuous passion abd preternatural conflict,  Lindsay realises there’s more at stake than her lover and her life – both she and Adrian could lose their very souls. 

Lindsay Gibson comes across as a daddy’s girl with a mind of her own, know one tells her what she can or cannot do and she is striving for her career. Her life has not all been plain sailing though as you read the book you see that she has had her deal of pain.  She lost her mum at a very young age to a Vampire attack and ever since she has been looking for the vampire who brutally killed her mother in front of her.  But Lindsay is not normal her self as I was lead to believe in the book she also has her own set of skills which is to do with “Shadoe”, Shadoe was Adrians one true love.

Adrian is a hot sexy, smart, romantic, dangerous sex machine 😉 this book definitely gets steamy so keep reading.  Adrian comes across Lindsay in an Airport after an attack on him, he is immediately attracted to Lindsay and then realises this is his sexual attraction to Shadoes soul.
He has a lot of love to give, but this book shows you his side of the story as well as Lindsays and I began to see his restraint and his love for Shadoe.
Adrian is the top hunter in his field of Angels and is only known by the supernatural for his power over them and what he can do.

I did like this book one I got past the very beginning.  There is a Glossary at the beginning of the book with a load of supernatural beings names, this helped because once I started reading I had no idea who was who in the book, there are so many supernatural beings to get my head around that I still feel a little confused now.  However that aside this book was definitely erotic, emotional with a few twists along the way.
I became really attached to the characters and the stories behind each person, however I would say the beginning is confusing so don#t feel like the only one.
This story explores the obstacles which these two characters have to overcome to be together and there fight for that love.
I wish there was more to this story, and I do hope Sylvia is writing the third book in the series as the second which I am reading now is based on one of the other characters in the book called Elijah, however this seems to happen a lot in series with other authors as well.  Does anyone else feel the same?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this book and please feel free to ask questions below 🙂 I am very happy to answer them all for you.  And do not forget to follow me on Instagram and Twitter where I regularly update my books and what I would recommend for you.

Love Hannah
