Your novels are unlike any other books I have read. Prior to your books, I was in love with Kresley Cole and her style of writing. I always felt that whenever she had come out with a book, it was the best and worst thing. I was amazing because it was like crack and I would be high, but then come crashing down when it was over. I have constantly been on the lookout for authors similar to her (the combination of humor, exciting, interesting, love, passion, edge of your seat, plots) and you have not only matched that, but exceeded any expectation I could ever had. You have made me a junkie for your novels. I cannot recall a book that has ever made me shed a tear because I felt the pain of the characters, and felt the loss myself.
You are a rare talent, and I love that my emotions are all over the place with your story telling.  .

I found Sterling on Amazon some weeks ago and when i started reading it this week I was hooked. Bought Twist as soon as I was finished reading Sterling and found out I liked the second book even more. I don't read books a second time. Never. Even if I'm totaly in love with a book I don't think it's fun to read it again, when I know what's about to happen. But I spent half of yesterday's night to re-read Twist, from the moment Logan shows up on Silver's doorstep.

(On "Twist") I had to take a minute to tell you how much I enjoyed your book... before I read it again. I've never started a book over as soon as I finished it before but, I just have to tonight.

I am an avid reader and it isn't too often that I find a book that draws me in and sticks with me. Thank you for creating books that I will be able to read again and again and enjoy them more each time.

"I'm an avid reader of Urban Fantasy and I wanted to let you know that Sterling: Mageri Series completely blew me away! I have not read another book in some time that has captured me as deeply as this did. It demanded my attention and kept me up until dawn!
Thank you for creating this series!"

"...so with that being said, it really means something to me that with this being the first book of your series and not the 3rd or 4th, your characters sucked me in immediately. I don't even want to pick up another book before the next one. I will be anxiously waiting for book 2. Thank you for writing such a great book."

"...it has been a really long time since I have a read a book that brought me to tears..(had to delete spoiler). But mostly it was just heart touching. Thanks for what you do, and writing such a great start to a series."

I just finished reading your new release 'Sterling' last night, I could not put it down and had to read it in one sitting. It is definitely one of the best books I have read in awhile and I have already started recommending it to my friends.

* * *

The characters are intriguing, the plot kept me guessing and I am eagerly waiting to devour the next book! I am so glad I stumbled upon this book, I am always trawling around on Amazon looking for books - I read at least 5 books per week, your book was a highlight in the sea of average.

I read about four novels a week and I must say your style is captivating. I would like to see about 10 more books in this series please.

Thanks for giving me faith again in trying a new author

REVIEW of "STERLING" From AMAZON.DE
I woke up one morning to find my first review on the German Amazon site. I was excited because not many sales are racked up in Germany in general. Except, there was one small detail: I couldn't read a word of it. Not being fluent, someone was kind enough to give me a translation, so I wanted to post it here as I enjoyed how detailed and thoughtful it was. They rated it 5 stars on amazon, but I believe it was a solid 4.5 for the review.

After the breakup of her relationship, Zoe Merrick lives a rather withdrawn life with her cat Max. However, she makes in exception from her self-imposed exile for her friend Sunny and allows herself to be persuaded to spend an evening in a bar. On her way home, she is attacked by a stranger with a knife and wakes up in a body bag covered in blood. During her escape she meets ex-soldier Adam Razor who takes care of her and also tolerate the changes which are happening to Zoe: she grows, gets dark hair and green eyes, until no one who knew her before would be able to recognize her. Zoe also develops other abilities which are difficult to control...

STERLING is the fantasy debut of Dannika Dark, which has spent several weeks in the top spots of the bestseller lists, though one wouldn't expect that based on the summary. Nor does the Kindle sample reveal what is behind the story, since the beginning is rather slow. The heroine and her changing would fit the countless vampire stories that are currently in circulation. Her induction into a supernatural world and the many attractive male characters surrounding her are common as well. In the beginning, Zoe is not overly likable, her rescuer Adam is surprisingly tolerant and accepts the strange changes that are happening to her without batting an eyelid.

Everyone who puts down the e-book at this point will miss a remarkable story, because it gets increasingly suspenseful: For Zoe is not turning into a vampire but into a mage and thus belongs to a supernatural species which in addition to vampires and other supernatural beings has been living in hiding from humanity for several centuries. With the Mageri it is customary that the creator trains the young mage he sired. But since Zoe was transformed against her will, another mentor takes care of her - Justus de Gradi. He is very attractive and almost irresistible to women, but also rather uptight, unapproachable and awfully old-fashioned. He attempts to wrap Zoe in cotton wool to protect her. As a result, she is badly prepared for everything else she faces.

Based on the classic ingredients of a vampire story the author creates something quite unique. Particularly the kind of magic, which is the focus of the story and appears more like energy manipulation than magic, provides the main appeal of the story together with the main characters. As the story goes on, Zoe becomes ever more likable. The fact that three male beings fight for the privilege of protecting Zoe does not detract from the story. Not everything is rose-coloured. The things that happen to Zoe would be enough to break a person. Moreover, she proves her warrior spirit and that she won't let anything get her down. The end of the plot is nervewreckingly exciting and provides a satisfactory conclusion to the momentary conflict without resolving all open questions. The sequel is something to look forward to.


EDIT: Since posting this, I've acquired a few more reviews on the German site. Alas, I can't really translate them, but I glance at the stars and I'm enormously grateful that the readers enjoyed them.
