review: Dark Liaison (an Ema Marx Novel 2) by J.D. Brown

“There's nothing worse than waiting and not knowing what'll happen to you. Your own imagination can be crueler than any captor.” - Richelle MeadFrostbite

Dark Liaison
when Ema Marx resurrects her ancestor Apollyon from the dead, all hell breaks loose. together with Prince Jesu ta Korento, Ema flees to Germany to hide. meanwhile, Apollyon takes steps in planning his revenge and realizing his dreams of world domination by gathering an army of dark supernatural allies...
author J.D. Brown's sequel to Dark Heirloom was an exciting read. the writing flowed seamlessly from start to finish and the worldbuilding was as fascinating as ever. one of the things which impressed me in the first book was Ms. Brown's vision of hell. here in Dark Liaison, her creative imagination continued to impress me with her version of a vampire hotel and especially that of a vampire prison. i also got to learn more about vampire history, politics, genealogies and clans as new characters were introduced. nothing was left to chance. every little detail was well thought of and significant to the storyline.
the main protagonist, Ema, learns more about being a Romani-Vampyre. she meets others of her kind, befriends some of them and inadvertently makes enemies of others. her new life is fraught with danger and intrigue that one can feel the tension oozing out of the pages at times. 
overall, i enjoyed every word of this 400-page novel and my jaw literally dropped at the explosive cliff-hanger ending! 
i highly recommend this book/series and i look forward again to the next installment.
*Dark Liaison is available in print and ebook formats at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, Muse It Up Publishing, Kobo and at the Official Dark Heirlooms Vampire Store. you can also download the first ten chapters for FREE HERE and read my review of the first book Dark Heirloom HERE. for more information about author J.D.
