A Walk in the Sun - Lisa Dominique Machat

                A Walk in the Sun is the first book written by new author Lisa Dominique Machat and it is quite a good one. Set in the 19th century, Nicholas is seventeen when he is attacked and becomes a vampire. Deeply in love with Elena, he takes her to Paris where their love is tested as evil forces try to destroy them. This is quite a short book (198 pages) compared to most I’ve read in this genre but, although compact, the story is very well written and enjoyable to read. It moves quickly with an easy flow and excellent character development. The reader is introduced to Nicholas’s life before he becomes a vampire and follows his love with Elena. There’s also an interesting twist at the end that I wasn’t expecting and Nicholas’s story is left open so that there may be future books about his adventures. Although mainly a romance there is also a fair bit of mystery and action for those seeking those genres. I love the setting of Victorian England and 19th century Paris as described by the author. The book formatted to my ereader very well and the cover was interesting. This is a fast paced action and romantic book that is sure to entertain.
