Netherrealm Book 1: Heed the Darkness is a work of fiction in the historical, mystery/intrigue, and romance sub-genres, and was penned by author Kim Michelle Ross. Combining many different elements of medieval life to deliver a truly epic work, this engrossing and engaging novel brings the past to meet the future when two young people from 2003 find themselves linked mentally to Bethany de Lise and Gerrat de Ashbore in the 12th century. As tensions rise for the pair and Bethany faces competition for the noble knight’s hand, mystic forces and portals through time may just be the key to surviving the brutal medieval age and finding some kind of happily ever after.
Author Kim Michelle Ross delivers an epic work which packs a lot into its pages to be sure that audiences are positively drenched in drama. Fans of historical romances will undoubtedly love the commitment put into the faithfulness which the author displays to courtship and the perception of love at the time. I, for one, really enjoyed the rivalry between Bethany and Elena, which took some fantastic and emotive twists and turns along the way. The wider plot also expands way beyond the realms of romance, encapsulating both a realistic view of how raw and savage life could be in the medieval age, but also intelligently weaving modern elements and fantasy twists into the plot to enhance our perspective. Overall, Netherrealm Book 1: Heed the Darkness is a promising start to a new series that will engross its readers from cover to cover.
