Book Review: Onyx Heart

Onyx Heart
Donna Cambell
2011

If you like Vampire tales I think you will love Donna Cambell's Christian approach to the vampire story.  I know I did.

Luke has been blind for three years, the same night he lost his sight he had lost his beloved Melinda.  Sometimes he still reaches out to her in the middle of the night only to find emptiness.  Despite his blindness Luke runs his ranch well, not a man is hired without his say, and with the help of Melba his housekeeper and her teenage son he is able to function well, but sometimes he wakes up wondering why the darkness then he remembers.

Melba does tend to get carried away in her protectiveness of Luke at times, sending search parties out for him when he wanders on his own wanting time to get away or think.  Soon Luke finds himself needing Melba's care though and he hates that helpless vulnerable feeling.

In his time of sickness Luke is seduced by a vampire who calls itself Celeste and is even promised he would get his sight back but taking what the power the vampire offers could lead to dire consequences.  Soon Luke finds himself with an uncontrollable thirst for blood and realizes he has been turned into a vampire. He does not get his sight back though and travels through the centuries without his sight.

I give this book five out of five stars...

Happy Reading
