As mentioned above, I love reading about vampires and also appreciated the oth

  5. Really enjoyed the world Church creates in Darkness Awaits as I love vampires and I love super Alpha males & Max, Michael’s love interest here, fits that bill *well*. It was also interesting to watch the changes that Michael experiences within himself throughout the story with having to deal with a part of himself that had been awakened that was very far from his natural tendencies to be submissive.
