    1. Thoughts at about 60% through What the fuck No, seriously The idea of this book is interesting a virus unleashed at the end of WWII turns some people into vampires, kills most everyone else, and drives the last remaining humans to an island chain in the middle of nowhere but the execution is just lousy Within the established rules of the universe, there are events that just make zero sense Every new reveal makes me scream because of the missed opportunities For example, in the very first chapter [...]

    2. Becoming Darkness by Lindsay Francis Brambles2.5 starsSophie Harkness is Immune She s in the small portion of the population who carry a genetic mutation that repels vampires from being able to feed off of her Hitler won the war and won because he released a deadly virus that infected millions turning them into monsters The Immunes were able to overthrow the quickly growing vampire population and were offered the opportunity to live on an island in solitude Sophie s life is becoming ripped up at [...]

    3. This is just utterly bewitching I ve read good books and I ve read a few excellent books in the last year This just blew me away Yes it does require a leap of faith Vampire Nazis you ask Is this a bad B movie Fair questions but I invite you to lower your guard This is a now set after history took a different branch Hitler still lives and 40 s s and expectations still hold a strong influence despite it now being the 90s Out of the ashes of WWII and the ready Gomorrah virus, rose the Immune Those [...]

    5. DNFI thought this would be some gritty dark kickass dystopia but it turned out to be some kind of yucky Twilight

    6. Thank you Switch Press for providing me this ARC in exchange for my honest review.Did you ever catch yourself thinking What if This is the mother of all What ifs Haven is just what it sounds, a haven for the Immunes, the humans that remained human, after Hitler released a virus that either killed or transformed most of humanity during WWII We meet Sophie a seventeen year old Immune, with an interesting relationship with an unlikely person After Sophie s best friend is murdered, she begins to unc [...]

    8. The synopsis of Becoming Darkness ticked off all of the boxes when it comes to what I enjoy reading, I thoroughly adore the paranormal genre, with vampires being my favourite supernatural beings of choice, add to that the historical element and the horrifying yet intriguing notion of a world where Hitler was never defeated and instead rules the whole world, the twist is what sets this book apart from so many others, the virus Gomorrah was released and turned most of the worlds population that we [...]

    10. I really liked this book But I can t really say too much about it, because I don t want to spoil anything for anyone So here are a few times things I really liked about this book Sophie is a very strong female lead She s determined, sassy at times, very relatable and real There are tons of vampires and Hitler is still alive and the Nazi s rule the planet earth Everyone has secrets and nothing at all is what it seems There are so many twists and turns that you will never be bored It pulled me in [...]

    11. I absolutely adored this book Such a captivating story Full review here mindcrazed.wordpress 2015

    12. I received this ARC copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Guys, I m done This was awful I tried, I really did DNF.This was a huge disappointment for me When I saw the cover, I was immediately like I want to read that Upon reading the synopsis, it escalated to I need to read that Nazi vampires Huge guilty pleasure of mine Seriously, anything in that genre is guaranteed to be read Add in an alternate universe and a gorgeous cover and I was well near salivating I had to read this boo [...]

    13. After Hitler unleashes a virus which leaves victims as vampires, the only survivors are the Immunes Decades later, after the war has ended, Hitler still reigns with his Nazi Vampires Sophie, an Immune, lives in the small town of Haven, content with her best friend and vamp boyfriend Until her best friend is mysteriously murdered, that is The murder unravels everything Sophie knew about her world, opening her to new truths that she wished she never saw Val, her boyfriend, has always said, Some tr [...]

    14. When I first heard about this book, I thought it sounded awesome An alternate history had Hitler won the Second World War, basically an airborne vampire pathogen, and only a small portion of the world still human It sounded too interesting to pass up.Haven is the name of the small archipelago in the Pacific Ocean that is the last refuge of humanity It is the only part of the planet not under the control of Hitler and his Nazis At least officially Haven is a sovereign nation though the contents o [...]

    15. Becoming Darkness is one of those books where you think, it s about time someone came up with this idea Vampires have already been used in pretty much every aspect I can think of But Nazi Vampires Uh, yes, please All the what if moments people think of and this somehow hasn t been one I think it was as great idea and an even greater book The book is told in the 1990 s, I believe, and Hitler is still alive It is a very large book but it was a fairly quick read and definitely worth the time So if [...]

    16. I know what you are thinking, because I too, was thinking the same thing This is yet another vampire book However, this is not your typical vampire book It is part epic adventure and part murder mystery, with a splash of forbidden obsession and a romance that never should have happened in the first place.Becoming Darkness by Lindsay Francis Brambles was not at all what I was expecting I have read many vampire novels, and this one was perhaps the most unique and the most exhilarating one I have e [...]

    17. I tried, I really tried, but this book is one of the worst I ve encountered in some time The writing itself is not particularly bad, though there s a bit of a pseudo noir style to it that feels forced by the 1940s inspired story world but doesn t make for very realistic characters or dialogue and is, I suspect, one of the reasons that the main character comes off at best as inconsistent and at worst even pathologically erratic than your typical hormone addled teenager.The world building is nons [...]

    18. 1.5 stars at most Thank you to NetGalley for providing a free copy in exchange for an honest review I gave up somewhere around page 350, then skimmed the last 10 pages to see if I was missing anything spectacular I don t think I did The Twilight vibes were too strong with this one and not in a good way I get that it s set in 2004 ish, but that doesn t mean it has to read like a book that was actually written popular in 2004.Loved the concept, and I thought it would be really interesting to explo [...]

    19. I got a free copy in exchange for a honest review through NetGalley thanks to the publishers This book completely surprised me I was not sure if this was something that i would like or not when i saw it on here, but i thought why not try and see if i can get a copy maybe i will really like this book, since honestly that i how i found most of my favorite books And this book fits into that as well I gone into this book not really knowing what to expect from a book that is set in a world where hitl [...]

    20. During World War II a virus was unleashed upon the world A virus that killed most of humanity and turned 200 million people into vampires, including Hitler himself Some people are Immune to the virus, and they have found their haven literally in Haven Sophie Harkness is one of the few Immunes And as if living in a world ruled by Nazi vampires isn t bad enough, a murderer is on the loose in Haven Sophie s best friend is brutally murdered and several attempts are made on her own life She is determ [...]

    21. I was so excited to read this when I first saw it as a giveaway I didn t realize at the time that this was a YA book Also, if the author had gone with the plot that was an introduction to the world this book takes place in then it would have been much enjoyable I would totally have gotten into this book if it were an alternate history where vampires existed and that was how the Nazis won the warat would be a very interesting book If you are looking for horror vampires you will be greatly disapp [...]

    22. I came into this book with a couple of apprehensions anything involving Hitler as a trope makes me nervous, and I m a werewolf fan than vampire But I m a sucker for anything paranormal, and my reservations were summarily dismissed by the end of chapter one From there on out, I enjoyed the atmospheric piece immensely Lindsay Francis Brambles writing is evocative, interesting, and her protagonist brings a lot to the table But this pales in comparison to the excellent world building, tight plot I [...]

    23. OMG this was so different then anything I ve ever read before what can I say then this,it has everything you would want in a this type of book at first all I know going in to it was that it was a book that had to do with Hitler ,and vampires,him winning the war, and then founding out there was so much ,like murder,an unsolved cold case,family secrets and lies,and every time I thought I had something figured out there were twists and turns, dark secrets that kept popping up,and I I read the I [...]

    24. I received a copy of this book via Netgalley However, I was unable to finish reading it as my phone broke Nearly a year later, I decided to purchase a hardcover of this book and boy when it arrived, I immediately started devouring it This story is unique although the plot was a little slow at times, it never failed to intrigue me I feel that this story would ve been slightly better if there was less romance and action which picked up toward the end of the book.

    25. A book about nazi vampires Which barely so much as mentions Jewish people or antisemitism Apparently the Holocaust is just a plot device for ya novels about gentiles now

    26. I received a review copy via Net galley and Switch press in return for a honest review.The moment I heard the premise of this novel i knew it was going t be something special Vampire Nazis What Yes Please This was the book i never knew I wanted I mean come on, it mixes my two favorite genres In this novel, the allies never won the war, instead a virus was released that either killed someone or turned them into a vampire, or vamp as the book calls them Not only did it turn Hitler into a vamp, but [...]

    27. I received an advanced copy of this novel from the publisher via Netgalley for an honest review.First, I have to admit that this seemed rather daunting when I first started reading it because was so long but the story certainly held up the entire way Bravo to the author for a Philip K Dick kind of sci fi story where the Nazis won World War II, but they won it by releasing a virus called Gommorah that either killed, turned people into vampires or for the last few, they are naturally immune Now th [...]
