Review: Dark Blessing by Sarah M. Cradit

Dark Blessing

Dark Blessing (A House of Crimson & Clover Lagniappe)
by Sarah M. Cradit


Kelley Landry and his brothers spent their childhood hunting the elusive vampire. Many hours they toiled in their covert clubhouse, coming of age under the veil of this unusual belief.

Now adults and in college, Kieran and Dillon Landry have moved past childhood whims, pursuing their futures. But Kelley can’t shake his call to the supernatural quite so easily. He spends his days working for his aunt in her pub, and his evenings still secretly investigating blood drinkers.

Kelley begins to wonder if it’s time to move on from his quest.
Then Queen Edith shows up, with revelations that send his entire world—and his beliefs—into an exciting whirlwind.


★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!

Kelley Landry and his two brothers, Kieran and Dillon, used to gather together and do research about vampires. But as years went by, due to the influence of their powerful family, Dillon and Keiran started to lose interest in anything paranormal and decided to follow their parents’ footsteps.

But Kelley still continued with his quest, and that is the very reason Queen Edith sought him out and together, they conspired to meet the first ever vampire they’d ever see.

I hate to admit this, but this is my first book by Sarah Cradit and I feel like I missed out a lot! Sarah’s writing is exceptional, the intrinsic details about vampires in general was unique and so new to me. I know Twilight had crushed my interests in vampires and now I realize, there are more exciting paranormal stories, much more enchanting and intriguing than the Cullens.

Now, I’m desperate to read the rest of the books in the House of Crimson and Clover series. Sarah Cradit is one imaginative author I would love to meet!



Sarah is the USA Today Bestselling Author of the Paranormal Southern Gothic series, The House of Crimson & Clover, born of her combined passion for New Orleans, and the mysterious complexity of human nature. Her work has been described as rich, emotive, and highly dimensional.

An unabashed geek, Sarah enjoys studying obscure subjects like the Plantagenet and Ptolemaic dynasties, and settling debates on provocative Tolkien topics such as why the Great Eagles are not Gandalf’s personal taxi service. Passionate about travel, Sarah has visited over twenty countries collecting sparks of inspiration (though New Orleans is where her heart rests). She’s a self-professed expert at crafting original songs to sing to her very patient pets, and a seasoned professional at finding ways to humiliate herself (bonus points if it happens in public). When at home in Oregon, her husband and best friend, James, is very kind about indulging her love of fast German cars and expensive lattes.
