Description: For vampire Miranda Dandridge, using her supernatural abilities to rescue children from impossible circumstances is her means to be a part of the human world that she loves so much, despite the atrocities of WWII.

For doctor Ben Gongliewski, saving his fellow Jews from the horrific death camps is an end for which he risks his own life every day, hiding his Jewish heritage while feigning loyalty the SS.

Neither Miranda nor Ben expects to find love in World War II Europe, but that is exactly what happens as they work for the Resistance. When the war draws to a close, it seems like the vampire and the doctor are free to start a future together. But just how far the Nazis will go to further their own evil ends?

Desperate times make for ruthless men as loves and lives are threatened, but, Miranda and Ben know that their world cannot go to hell, not by any means…


REVIEW: Release has an interesting mix of otherworldly. Vampires, shifters, demons & angels and add to that Nazis. I think the premise of this book & series is quite different from most. I like the uniqueness. I find the plot very engaging.

While the Nazis move around Europe destroying everything and killing everyone a group or renegades was doing their part to save as many as it was humanly or otherworldly possible. I really enjoyed this book. The history and tragedy behind it, the scenes and settings were all heart felt.  Their interaction was interesting since the story has different point of views. I enjoyed Rose, Miranda and Vanessa, their friendship slowly developing into a sisterhood.

The characters are likeable, their adventures and desires are well exposed and exploit. I love the back drop for this story, though it is a sad one makes it for a more interesting story. Vampires, werewolves, angels and demons roamed the world during WW2 and they were part of the solution.I like how nicely paced the story is, relationships develop slowly yet they don’t take long to become strong.

So, I am trapped in this basement, held hostage by a vampire, a demon and a werewolf.

So you think you the story of Adam and Eve is interesting? well allow me to indulge you into the origins of Miranda my favorite character in this book. She was born from outcasts – Lilith the first wife of Adam (cast out of Eden when she wouldn’t submit to him) and Sammael, an angel who wouldn’t accept man’s place in God’s love. She was awesome from the moment she was born.  The story is interesting and it only goes into proving that not all vampire books are equal.

Overall this is a really enjoyable story. I liked the story because it has heart, adventure and romance. The plot kept me engage and entertained throughout the book and the characters made it fun. I’ll add author Nicole Hadaway  to the list of authors to watch.
