The Dark Heroine by Abigail Gibbs

The Lovereading4Kids comment

The Dark Heroine: Dinner with Vampire: follows the feisty 18-year-old Violet Lee as she is swept into a glittering world of extravagance and luxury, but all the riches of the world can’t hide the darkness underneath – embodied in the charismatic but dangerous Kaspar Varn.


The Dark Heroine by Abigail Gibbs

The addictive, enthralling debut by online sensation Abigail Gibbs. The sexiest romance you'll read this year. One moment can change your life forever...

For Violet Lee, a chance encounter on a darkened street draws her into a world beyond her wildest imaginings, a timeless place of vast elegance and immeasurable wealth - of beautiful mansions and lavish parties - where a decadent group of friends live for pleasure alone. A place from which there is no matter how hard Violet tries. Yet all the riches in the world can't mask the darkness that lies beneath the gilded surface, embodied in the charismatic but dangerous Kaspar Varn. Violet and Kaspar surrender to a passion that transcends their separate worlds - but it's a passion that comes at a price.


'Abigail Gibbs will make you fall in love with vampires all over again... but look out: these vampires will bite'

'The Dark Heroine is an epic sexy vampire story set in London with afflicting characters and non-stop action (literally). I cannot wait for this book to be published because it will be HUGE! Bigger than it already is!'

'Romance, action and an impossibly sexy (yet possibly deadly) male character! Do I need to say more?'

'The Dark Heroine is a dark and seductive paranormal romance that had me completely intrigued. Abigail Gibbs gives us a dangerous, sexy and sometimes disturbing set of vampires and a heroine who quite frankly would wipe the floor with the likes of Bella Swan.'

About the Author

Abigail Gibbs was born and raised in deepest, darkest Devon. She is currently studying for a BA in English at the University of Oxford and considers herself a professional student, as the real world is yet to catch up with her. Her greatest fear is blood and she is a great advocate of vegetarianism, which logically led to the writing of her first novel, Dinner With A Vampire. At age fifteen, she began posting serially online under the pseudonym Canse12, and after three years in the internet limelight, set her sights towards total world domination. She splits her time between her studies, stories and family, and uses coffee to survive all three.
