This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Life for a female slave is one of hardship and unspeakable sorrow, something Luna knows only too well. But not even she could have foreseen the terror that would befall her one sultry Mississippi evening in the summer of 1807.
On her way back from a visit to see the African woman, a witch who has the herbs Luna needs to rid her of her abusive master’s child, she attracts the attention of a deadly being that lusts for blood. Forcibly removed from everything she knows by this tormented otherworldly creature, she is sure she will be dead by sunrise.
Dark Genesis is a love story set against the savage world of slavery in which a young woman who has been dehumanised by its horrors finds the courage to love, and in doing so, reclaims her humanity.
Best Series Ever!!
I'm so impressed by the creativity and masterful writing of A D Koboah. The way she weaves together the tragic history of slavery with the excitement of fantasy is unparalleled! This is a must read!!!
I loved it. Downloading part 2
As an avid fan of all things Anne Rice, I can be hard to please, especially when it comes to paranormal/historical fiction. This book did not disappoint! I stayed up until after 3am and read it in one sitting! My only regret was that it was over, and I so wanted it to go on. Reading a story told from the pov of a slave, a traumatized woman, a woman in the throes of all the awakenings of her first love...a woman who has found her freedom both within herself and from the confines of the society she was born into...I was enthralled from start to finish. I truly found a gem when I stumbled upon this author, and you have found a faithful fan and reader in me!
