Ahriman, an ancient incubus has found a way to exist on the mortal plain, and now, after centuries of waiting, he is close to achieving his ultimate goal of immortality. If he succeeds, it could herald the end of humanity. Standing in his way is Jasmine, his own half-human daughter. Does she have the will-power and strength to withstand Ahriman’s god-like power, or is she doomed to become his queen and the source of all he desires?
Born of Darkness is quite the experience. Taking the reader to locales like Morrocco, Florida, England and Venice, Rita Vetere follows the path of an ancient and evil necklace as it brings death and despair to everyone who’s life it touches. How such a simple object does this is one of the many surprises in store for the readers of this detailed and carefully plotted dark fantasy.
Rich settings and character development, solid research and a deceptively casual writing style virtually guarantees a number of entertaining surprises for anyone who takes the time to read Vetere’s story of good arising from the most surprising of places.
The book contains a few questionable editing choices and proofing errors, but they weren’t enough to detract from my enjoyment of the novel. I would also have preferred to see more dialogue in the story, but in the end I can honestly say Born of Darkness is a unique and interesting offering that stands out from the slush pile of Demons and Draculas I wade through every day.
