“Black” by Catherine Winters is simply awesome! I am so excited I had the chance to review this book. When it comes down to it, the story grabbed me right the beginning and I actually read the entire book in one sitting. However this did take me all day one Saturday afternoon, but I enjoyed thoroughly.
Because I do not limit my reading to just one particular genre, I think that this allows me to go in open minded when starting a new book. Often people compare indie books to other big names in the business but that is truly unfair to compare any one story to another.
I have always been intrigued about vampires and witches and mostly watch them in movies or tv shows rather than read them. “Black” by Catherine Winters made me feel like I was watching a movie. I would recommend this “Black” to lovers of vampire stories. This isn’t just a vampire novel; “Black” has several dramatic aspects that make the characters real. I found myself relating Josephine and her experiences, even the desperate ones that come along.
I also think a good run-over from a proofreader would make this read 5 stars for me! Editing issues can hinder the success of a book however the few editing issues I found were minor and did not distract me from the story. They were noticeable nonetheless.
Setting aside the minor editing issues, I really think Catherine is a talented author and “Black” is Brilliant!
