Twilight Over Moldavia by Stephanie Burkhart
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Witches and werewolves and vampires, oh my! Twilight over Moldavia is the second book in a series of paranormal romance. I have to say I was very entertained. The story starts a little slow, but once it gets rolling, it's an entertaining read. The main character, Stefan, is a well groomed leader for his country: remarkably calm and reserved. He is betrothed to Caroline who steps in to fill her sister's shoes after her untimely death. The unification of Romania is a large piece of the story and the marriage of the pair will create the unity they search for. The story weaves in Romanian history and touches of the rich culture and is reminiscent in feel to Malificent. The author spends time fleshing out the scenery as they pair tour over the country.
As much as I liked this book, the “tour the country with my bride to be and we fall in love” trope was easy to call despite their falling in love being a gradual progression throughout the book. Stefan and Caroline suit one another well and seem to shore one another's weaknesses. It's a good match.
I'm tempted to pick up the first book in the series so I can learn a little more history behind a few of the elements touched on in remembrance. I think it would bring the story alive a bit more for me.
