    1 thought on “Dark Season: The Complete First Series

    1. Each book as an individual story was well written, entertaining and a real page turner towards the end. However, I thought I had missed the final book of the series when I finished Book 8. Unfortunatly, that was not the case. "series 2", which should be called season 2 won't be out until later this year. This is nothing but a written soap opera and as such there is never an ending. The most important story lines were left dangling at the end of book 8. I hate soap operas and wish I hadn't wasted [...]

    2. I have come a long way since I first read book one in the Dark Season Series by Amy Cross. Novellas are not something I normally bother with, they are simply too short. You get into the groove of a story, get attached to the characters and then all of a sudden it is over. Dark Season books one, two and three were like that for me. The stories just too short. I wanted them to last longer, because they were just that good.Then I discovered, after reading the first three in the series individually, [...]

    3. A Must Read for readers who love vampire love stories.I just want to say that this first series has me hooked. I am going to get the next books to finish this series. I love how A. Cross blends past and present together to make you understand what the prophecy is all about. I was really hoping that Patrick would finally say something to Sophie, but I was wrong. The author, clearly let's you know that love was felt, though not said in actual words. I loved the characters and the storyline. I was [...]

    4. Another good read from this horror /fantasy writer and although I would agree that it needs a thorough edit, it did keep my interest from beginning to end.I do like how it switches characters and the first person style and also how the to and fro in time reveals the inner workings of the plot little by little, thus making it a suspenseful read.An interesting cast set within original ideas with themes such as betrayal, loyalty, friendship and love.Patrick is a particularly intriguing character an [...]

    5. I read the first in this series and it was intriguing then I went and bought the complete series for 2.99. I wish I had just donated that money to the author to help her find someone who would fix all the mistakes and bad spelling in the book and maybe help her write a story. One of the worst books (series) I think I've ever read. It sucked my big toe!!!

    6. Dark Season: The Complete First Series by Amy CrossThe Dark Season Series has to be read in the order indicated in the synopsis. To do otherwise would leave the reader in confusion. This first season launches us into the lives of Sophie and Patrick, heroine and brooding vampire. Anticlimactic, it races toward the inevitable fulfilment of a centuries old prophecy. The best thing to do is hang on and enjoy the ride. This is the sixth novel I've read, and the third series of novels by Ms. Cross. I [...]

    7. InterestingMany characters, several povs and so much death. Many unanswered questions. Few mistakes. Plenty of characters to hate. None to really love. Meh about reading the second.

    8. This series was really enjoyable. Sophie is saved from a mugging set up by a reporter to lure the last vampire out of hiding. It tells of her acquaintance with Patrick and the prophecy that unfolds

    9. Loved the concept of Dark Season and how is was laid out. The only thing wrong with the story was Sophie she started to get on my nerves. Thank you

    10. Book 1 is the Last Vampire. It is about Sophie who is attacked at an ATM by 2 guys and they brutally beat her up until Patrick comes in to save her. Patrick takes her to Vincent who saves her even though she should have died. When she awakens she learns that Patrick is a vampire and he is the last vampire. Vincent tells her that Patrick will kill her one day yet not now, she will make him so upset and angry and he will kill her. She also realizes that Patrick does not speak and comes to her bedr [...]

    11. It was good, exciting and was like episodes in a TV show like BUFFY or something. But more dramatic and horror-like. This book was clearly unedited and that was annoying, but it was still pretty good. This book is about a girl named Sophie Hart and she gets wrapped into the world of Vampires and Werewolves, ghosts and more. This is not typical of Twilight and more chilling than True Blood/Sookie books. The Vampire Patrick doesn't speak and it's at first hard to realize his intentions. I like the [...]

    12. Just a job well done from a lonely jamaican teen who is beyond enthused about finding your book and reading it again prior to this.I just don't know. This is my second time reading Dark Seasons and I just don't know. I don't think I'll ever know, all I can cipher is the fact that it has earned it's place on the forefront of my mind of being one of the best books I've ever read and one day I will read the two other series. When I've emotionally recuperated. Thank you Amy Cross. I've fallen in liv [...]

    13. Reading the Completed Series, makes these novellas much more enjoyable. They're fun, quick reads.I very much like Sophie' mental banters, they're very relatable and comical.What I didn't like about these books are the lack of character building, although we are given snippets of them as you read each series. Also, there are so many grammatical errors, it's becoming annoying having to reread a sentence or paragraph over a few times so I can decipher how it should've been written.I'm moving on to [...]

    14. Lots of seemingly disparate characters all with their own chapters but all are related. One young woman finds herself part of a prophecy and her world is literally turned upside down. The horror and carnage increases the further along in the book. The prophecy has not played out and continues in more books. I may or may not continue with this series. Initially I thought it was going to be a light read because of Sophie Hart's lack luster friends and family and I was very pleasantly surprised at [...]

    15. So much better when you get to read the series as a whole because you have the chance to grow attached to the characters and invest more into the story as a whole. I had a much better experience reading the Dark Season series together. Once you get the entire picture instead of only reading as a very short story dissected into several other short stories you are able to see the bigger picture and actually enjoy the story thats being told. Bravo Amy Cross, Dark Season was a fantastic read!

    16. As tired as I am of vampires in all shapes & forms, this story pulled me in. Then I found out there are several more 'series' to the story. Argh! There was a cliff hanger ending, so sooner or later I will read the rest. I only gave it 3 stars, as it has the same issue that seems to be in every vampire book- the female character just accepts a certain condition for her relationship w/said vampire that she would not put up with from any *normal* guy.

    17. Ya know, if a vampire intending to kill me was dying I'd shove a stake in him, make sure he's well and truly dead and go get myself some mutton biryani to celebrate.I WOULDN'T(view spoiler)[give him blood from my thigh(?) to save his sorry ass nor would I sleep with him! (hide spoiler)]What the heck?!Sophie and Patrick just half-heartedly drag themselves through the plot.

    18. PatrickI liked this book, I just don't think it was for me. I kept putting it down. I loved the blurb about it and liked the cover However after reading it the cover and title really didn't do anything for me.

    19. I loved this series I read all 8 in 2 days and can't wait to read the next set ;) minor spelling errors but the story and plots of all the mini stories within the story out weighed any small misspellings or grammar issues. I highly recommend this series and author to everyone I know!!!

    20. Book needs some edits, but I love the characters and the story linesd I always love the creativity of when an author creates a new species, something completely unique to them, and not found anywhere else (tenderlings, the Lock, etc).

    21. There is a prophecy that is hinted at throughout the series but never revealed until it is fulfilled, piece by piece. The story flows pretty well and the characters are enjoyable. A few errors but nothing overwhelming. Pretty good tale overall of a girl and the silent vampire she befriends.

    22. This is an amazing book. What an imagination this author has. There were times I was so irritated with Sophie. She just would not listen. I kept wanting Patrick to talk. When he whispered to Shelley at the end, I'm dying to know what he whispered to her. I have to read Second Series.

    23. The story line is really good but I found that the writing was poor quality. The idea was there but the skill was not. I don't think I'll be reading anything else from this author.

    24. I stopped reading this complete series and had to stop in the first few pages of book 4. This was a very confusing series to try to read and hard to get in to.

    25. Sophie gets mugged and gets saved by Patrick and taken to Vincent, but what is Patrick the man who never speaks and what is Vincent to Patrick and how does Sophie fit in

    26. These short tales are well worth the time to read. Having said that, there was a great deal which could have been improved regarding characterisations and the over all editing of the work.

    27. Dark Season 1I liked this first book. I did not like that the vampire did not talk. Overall though it was very good. Can't wait to start 2nd series.

    28. It is so rare to find a brilliant new take on the vampire genre and this is it. Amy Cross yet again delivers a brilliant, very well written and totally addictive series. Roll on the second series.
