Featured: Absolution by P.L. Parker
Review: “A magnificent paranormal romance with originality woven throughout. Can a creature who needs blood to survive be pure?”
For years, travelers in the French Vosges Mountains heard the wailing of a woman echo in the hollows. Her cries went unbidden.
No one was brave enough to seek out the source.
Over time, the screams lessen, then stop. Eventually, even the memories slipped away, forgotten.
Six centuries later, two over-eager research assistants find and release the young half-vampire, Chloe—unaware of events they unwittingly unleash with her.
Far away, other forces are aware of her awakening.
Zaccarius, greatest of all the Slayers, is sent by the Council of Nine to seek out Chloe, determine her worth and render justice.
Enticed by her purity and innocence, he becomes her protector.
However, Jochad, the Dark Master, and his army of evil vampires are eager to claim Chloe.
In the battle that ensues, Zaccarius falls beneath Jochad’s army.
To save her lover, Chloe must make a choice. Ancient and dying, Jochad needs her blood to reanimate.
His ultimatum—her blood or Zaccarius’ life.

I’ve read a lot of paranormal and urban fantasy novels over the years and never have I read anything like Absolution. The story unfolds in a predictable way, to be sure, but then takes the reader in a totally different direction.
P.L. Parker’s writing has a very gothic romance vibe which added an interesting depth to the plot. I connected with the characters right away, especially Chloe.
I kept waiting for her vicious visage to take over, but I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. Nope, no spoilers here.
The plot moves at a great pace and the ending was so fulfilling. If you’re looking for a paranormal romance with a gothic vibe, pick up Absolution.
If you’re looking for a paranormal romance that’s original, pick up Absolution.
