I've never read a book in this genre before. I didn't know what to expect. With vampires and werewolves I expected to be a rank outsider, I expected the author to assume her readers had 'some' knowledge of fantasy storytelling. I must say I was delightfully wrong therefore I didn't feel stupid as I have with other novels that I've picked up in the past.

 

 

I kinda fell in love with the main character (Topaz). She's sweet, determined, inquisitive, emotional. Her dominance as a character throughout the chapters was refreshing. Topaz' character developed nicely throughout the story I felt like I was on the journey with her rather than just reading words about her.

 

 

One thing is certain. I couldn't put two minutes to midnight down, I was so gripped by the end of each chapter. I enjoyed it so much I had to read it for a second time in short succession to the first. I have to say I'm very impressed with this novel and the author! I will be looking forward to expanding my collection of the carpe noctem series when they are released. I certainly recommend this book to others!

Having read and adored A discovery of witches trilogy by Deborah Harkness I wasn't sure how this would compare but it exceeded my expectations and I loved it ! The chemistry between Topaz and Logan was both sexy and heart warming and I owe a particularly gorgeous Vampire an apology as I so had him pegged as a bad guy! Can't wait to read the next book in this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly entertaining, sexy read

23 October 2017

Format: Kindle Edition

 

This was a highly entertaining, sexy, and romantic read. It featured a strong female character, a witch, who falls in love with a vampire. The hero in the book is sexy and strong, and the two leads make a terrific couple you can really root for. The book had the perfect amount of worldbuilding for my tastes; enough to set the scene but not so much that it was boring or overwhelmingly detailed. Just a few too many typos, but a great read overall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steamy Vampire Fantasy

16 December 2016

Format: Kindle Edition

 

 

Steamy steamy steamy with a large dash of fantasy of the Vampire and Werewolf kind. Its written with a modern down to earth feel about a subject that is as intriguing, fascinating and dark as the main male character Logan. A book that eases you into an unfamiliar world, where I find myself relating to familiar characters but with additional twists.

This is a very interesting book that offers a different take on the legends of the night walkers. Though the subject is far from unique, the theme of true and undying love, in addition to a fair amount of unexpected twist and turn of events, is enough to keep the reader’s interest. Sex scenes are described in vivid detail and the characters range from fascinating, to intriguing, to endearing. Though the ending seems a bit anticlimactic, I find in necessary and understandable.

I found this story to be refreshingly different! Topaz was a character I found myself relating to on so many different levels throughout the story, which made me feel really invested in her story and how her relationships were going to develop as the story continued. The story itself was well paced, and had just the right combinations of funny moments to more serious moments. The romance was steamy and the action bits were just enough to keep things interesting. Definitely look forward to reading more from this author!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book!

May 21, 2019

Format: Kindle Edition

 

 

I would never call myself a fan of anything in the romance genre, though I have been a huge fan of the fantasy genre for as long as I can remember.

When I started reading the book, I immediately found myself being able to relate to the main character. Her views on men, dating, work, and the world in general is so similar to my own. I must admit, when I first read the word “Vampire” I thought, “Oh no, here we go again.”

It turned out to be so much better than I would have thought, and it’s really taught me not to a judge a book by its vampire. I like how she took the story of vampires and twisted it slightly, while also keeping them as more traditional vampires.

As a fantasy reader I wish there were more action, but the “action” scenes definitely made up for that.

This book is one of the best ones I’ve read lately, Thank you so much Willow Salix for being a super awesome author.

 

 

5.0 out of 5 stars  Brilliantly written!

I am not a big fan of vampire romances, but Two Minutes to Midnight by Willow Salix was an astounding surprise for me. I love it so much that definitely is going to reread it and not once. The writing is superb! I savored every sentence. Willow Salix is a great master of making you relish details, plunging into the subtleties of the characters’ feelings and sensations, making everyday life shimmer with miracles we normally do not notice.

Topaz—the main heroine—doesn’t fit in this world, but who of us really does, even if we refuse to admit it to ourselves. With all her might, she tried to prove that this world is much more than it’s commonly accepted to think about it. However, when she comes across the indisputable evidence of her rightness, she is not quite ready to accept it. The same way as she is not quite ready to accept what she herself really is.

It’s always so; we can show our full potential only when we meet those who don’t mind dealing with it. Alas, not all of them are those who love us.

Topaz meets both and comes to know about herself much more than she could ever expect. And here, you can’t tell whether it’s natural or supernatural things what amazes you most. Two Minutes to Midnight is a stunning example of exquisite erotica, full of true Love and spiritual growth of the characters.

 it really liked it  ·  review of another edition

Being a fan of fantasy – romance books, this book was on my “must get” list. And the first instalment of Willow Salix’ came as a very nice surprise as it’s more than just another romance book with vampires; it feels like an introduction of some sort, so if you are new to this kind of books, maybe read her books first, as it offers enough details regarding the supernatural, witchcraft, vampires, all set in one of the impressive locations in the world, Edinburgh (but I am partial to this city, as I simply love it).

 

Willow’s stile of writing offers you the feeling that you are actually there, it certainly brings vivid images in your mind as you read. The book is highly entertaining, fast paced, with main characters that you can’t help yourself but to root for (Topaz, the main female char, captures your heart from the very beginning with her personality, as she is practical – in this most unpractical and fantastic world). I loved how the action of the book flows, and it’s a natural passing from a chapter to the other. It’s one of those books that you cannot let go of and you end up reading until you finish (even if it’s 6 am in the morning and you must go to work in 3 hours). I recommend Two minutes to midnight as you won’t be disappointed!

 

PS: Did I mention about the gifts that came with the book? Those were a really nice surprise, first time I received this with a book :)

Miss Willow knows how to make her fans happy, through her writing and the personal touch on the books!

So excited to read this next book and find out where the story takes me to next and to learn more about the characters. Willow Salix has an easy style that just leads the reader in and you really identify with the characters . I can't for book 3. Will content myself with re reading the first two!
