The Dark Prophecy 1: Resurrection of the Vampire

Worth reading 😎

The Dark Prophecy is a gripping story of paranormal creatures. With vampires, witches, wars, and a prophecy, it's an action packed treat!

CW: violence and gore.


The Dark Prophecy 1: Resurrection of the Vampire is a brilliant story of vampires and witches. The story begins with the resurrection of Shane, a newborn vampire who's destined to fulfil the prophecy, unite all the vampires, and end the Shadow Wars. The vampires fight over who Shane will join, and who'll have the power when the war's finally over. As if that's not enough, the witches know about the prophecy too, and it will never be fulfilled if they have anything to do with it.


The Dark Prophecy 1 is full of twists and turns, and I loved it! It's full of action, and I felt like I couldn't put it down. The story is also quite short so I got through it quite quickly.


What I enjoyed most about The Dark Prophecy 1 is that there was more to the story than just the prophecy. Even though that was a big focus in the book (with a twist I didn't expect), some of the characters had their own storylines which merged well with the prophecy plot line. For example I liked Theresa the witch's storyline with the family that she's temporarily become a part of.


I do wish that the story had been a bit longer. There was a lot going on, and personally I would have enjoyed a slightly slower pace a bit more, or at least more detail about particular events. In places it felt a little bit rushed, and there were some things I would have liked to spend more time reading about (such as Theresa's family, Shane's time discovering his powers, and the formation of Julianne, Luke, and Shane's relationship).


Overall The Dark Prophecy 1 is a great book to read for lovers of the paranormal looking for an action packed read. It's dark, full of interesting characters, and best of all the first in a series! I really enjoyed this book, and can't wait to check out the second installment.
