Dark Lord of Kismera (Knights of Kismera #1) by Tamara H. Hartl
First time reading this author and I loved it! Ms. Hartl paints a beautiful and descriptive canvas.
I especially liked how well the fantasy world of Kismera was introduced and incorporated. The amount of fantasy, paranormal, and romance was in perfect alignment. Drace was compelling, sexy, and sweet. Ki was strong, resilient, and vulnerable at times.
I was not sure how to feel about Maggie's character. I do not think she is vital to the story and, honestly, I get frustrated with how their interactions evolved throughout the book. I also thought it was quite long. Dark Lord of Kismera could be multi-book series itself. Not that I'm complaining!
For me the mark of a good series starter is whether or not I want to continue reading the series. I whole-heartedly want to continue reading the Knights of Kismera series!
