Review/Giveaway: Burning by JM Gregoire


Title: Burning
Series: A Demon Legacy Short Story
Author: JM Gregoire
Published: October 2012
Format: Ebook provided by author for review

Lucas was a typical playboy - lots of alcohol and a different girl every night. 

One woman brought his emotional walls and the beliefs he used to build them crumbling to the ground. 

Now, an unexpected visitor is going to change both their worlds forever. 




So Burning is a short story that is going to lead into a larger series called Demon Legacy.  Keeping that in mind, I feel like a reviewer must make a few concessions when reading.  For one thing, this story is about 13 pages long.  It is massively difficult to fit much story into that short of a span and keep the reader waiting for more.  But that’s what JM Gregoire did. I want to read more, and I will keep my eye for this series.

Burning is written in third person POV.  I really wish the story was a bit longer and a bit more detailed.  However, I really feel it served its purpose of giving some history for whats to come, and offering a bit of tease for the overall feel of the story. 

I really enjoyed Lucas, and felt he was a bit of the epitomical vampire.  He likes to have fun, but not monogamous long lasting fun.  Well, at least until he meets Natalia.  It always takes that one special woman to change that hard livin’ man, doesn’t it?

And Natalia is a terrific character too.  The author did a great job of making me care for both of these people in a short span of time. She seems to be a kind and caring person.

I think that Burning definitely sets the stage for what is to come.  I’m hoping the energy continues to stay amped up, and that new and interesting characters will be introduced.  And obviously, there’s Lucas.  I always love to see those leading men ;)
