Review: Running In The Dark by Inger Iversen

~Book Details/Synopsis~

Running in the Dark
In the Dark #1
By- Inger Iversen
Genre- New Adult Paranormal Romance

Known as Trace to his enemies and friends, this lethal Dhampir leaves no trace of his victims behind.

The life of deadly Russian slayer, Trace, has always revolved around death and preventing humankind from learning about the legendary creatures of the night. But now his position as a Watcher has become a prison, and dealing death for the Nation isn’t as prestigious as he once believed it to be.

College dropout Bessina Darrow has witnessed things she isn’t permitted to see, a simple case of wrong place at the wrong time puts her life in danger. When Bessina becomes his new mark, Trace is prepared to eliminate her—until he discovers a way out for them both.

Protecting Bessina means defying the leaders of the Nation, an act that has them both running for their lives. The more Trace fights to disappear from danger, the more he unravels the secrets surrounding his world of lore—secrets he must unveil to finally save a life, instead of destroy it.


~My Review~

Running In The Dark takes us into Bessina's world. After her friends abandoning her Bessina is about to leave everything behind and head to Ohio to live with her Aunt. That is until she unwittingly witnesses the deaths of 2 vampires.

Trace is a watcher, he either watches the death of vampires or is sent out to kill them. Trace's latest target is none other than Bessina, because she witnessed the vampire deaths at the docks.

However the events that transpire next caused Trace to end up protecting Bessina and be running from his boss instead.

Bessina has had a real struggle so far. Her friends had turned their backs on her and she had been sexually assaulted too.
Trace is a dhampir; half human, half vampire; he is able to be in sunlight but he also needs blood to survive.

Running In The Dark is fresh and innovative; it is a different take on vampires and humans. It was an easy read and I became immersed within a few pages. The characters are realistic and believable, they interact incredibly well with each other and with the reader too.

The author has put both thought and care into writing this story as it is clear from the way it reads. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Running In The Dark and I'm looking forward to the next book by Inger Iversen that I read.
