Dark Genesis (The Darkling Trilogy Book 1)
by A.D. Koboah
Published March 21st, 2012

Life for a female slave is one of hardship and unspeakable sorrow, something Luna knows only too well. But not even she could have foreseen the terror that would befall her one sultry Mississippi evening in the summer of 1807. 

On her way back from a visit to see the African woman, a witch who has the herbs Luna needs to rid her of her abusive master’s child, she attracts the attention of a deadly being that lusts for blood. Forcibly removed from everything she knows by this tormented otherworldly creature, she is sure she will be dead by sunrise.

Dark Genesis is a love story set against the savage world of slavery in which a young woman who has been dehumanised by its horrors finds the courage to love, and in doing so, reclaims her humanity.

Oooh. The slavery part sounds awful, but I think the story sounds really intriguing! And I'm quite curious as to see what the supernatural element is.... perhaps vampires??
