What Readers Say About My Books

What Readers Are Saying About Poison Blood, Book 1: Revelation

"The best book I've read on my Kindle Fire. Absolutely loved it." 5-stars
~

“This is definitely not a soppy vampire romance!  As usual with Neha Yazmin’s novels, things are never as they seem.  Just as you think you have a grip on what’s happening, Neha drops more bombshells to keep you guessing (and the pages turning!).  I have a taste for blood – Poison Blood that is!” 5-stars
~

“I am definitely hooked on the Poison Blood series.  Part of me was unsure as to whether another vampire story was worth telling... It definitely was!  There is so much more to the vampire world that Neha creates - and she really does create a world... but really, this is a character-driven story.  Neha's characters' depths are what drive her stories, each with their hidden secrets.  Book 1 of the Poison Blood series really is about the 'Revelation'. 5-stars
~

“It's more like poison love. 5-stars

What Readers Are Saying About Chasing Pavements (Soulmates Saga #1) ~ A Contemporary Romance Novel

"A truly fantastic read. The two main characters are cleverly crafted, impeccable. Their depth makes them feel real as they become a woven part of the reader. It is a story of heartbreak, broken pieces and that gratifying light at the end of the long dark tunnel as a new and pure love heals old  wounds and glues the pieces back together. It is a feel-good read which I highly recommend to all who love contemporary romance. Loved it." 5-stars
(Author, I.C. Camilleri)
~


"Very well written, I felt like I knew the characters myself!" 5-stars (Kobo Review)
~

"Neha Yazmin's novel grips you from start to finish.  There are so many things I love about this novel. Jamie's creativity. Mukti's determination. Twists and turns with every chapter. But most of all, I love that you see the characters grow and develop. When you reach the last page, it feels like you've been on a long journey with them - yet it's a journey that you want to do all over again!" 5-stars (Amazon UK Review)
~

"This is not your typical chick lit book. There is no sloppy romance and no mushy words. This is truly a one of a kind book. Little by little the story was told to me and it was told perfectly. I cannot believe this is Neha’s first book.  It is perfect. This is definitely a must read." 5-stars (Book Blog, A Novel Review)
~

"Chasing Pavements is like one of a kind. I loved the book. It touched me in such a way that I felt lost for a while without having Jamie and Mukti in my life. I can't believe that this is the author's first book; the way it's written is excellent. I was captured from the beginning of the story. A must read." 5-stars (Book Blogger, RosieReview)
~

"Unputdownable!  I loved the London setting. The story is well told.  Neha has a way with descriptions that make the scenes really vivid.  The songs were a great mechanism to add to the story telling.  I look forward to reading Neha's other work but I hope I don't have to wait too long!" 5-stars (Smashwords Review)
~

"I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a different kind of love story.  The author has a way of pulling you into the story and keeping you there until the end.  I found myself caring for the characters, especially Mukti, who goes through a lot.  I enjoyed this book a lot and couldn't forget about it after I finished reading it.  Touching, moving, unique love story." 5-stars (iBooks UK Review)

"A good read." 5-stars (Smashwords Review)

What Readers Are Saying About Make You Feel My Love and Someone Like You (Soulmates Saga #2 & #3)


“The plot of Make You Feel My Love is a refreshing change to the typical narratives of romantic fiction.  I enjoyed the various plot twists and the way the narrative flits between the points of view of the different characters involved.  But most of all, I loved the characters themselves.  Neha has a unique way of writing where you really empathise with the characters.  You might not always agree with the choices they make (!), but you are able to understand their points of view and you care about them all the same. 

At times, I found myself laughing out loud at their humorous conversations.  At other times, I found myself crying over their heart-wrenching sadness (yes I admit it, it made me cry!).  This story really does take you through a whole rollercoaster of emotions.

All in all, I would thoroughly recommend this book!" *5-stars (Amazon UK Review)
~

"Wow! I can't wait for the next book!" 5-stars (Goodreads Review) 
~

"Amazing book!
Exciting book that I had to keep turning the page until I finished it." *5-stars (iBooks UK Review) 
~


 Great ending." 4-stars (Goodreads User)
~

"Full of drama, romance and twists and turns. I couldn't predict what would happen in the next chapter but wasn't disappointed with what did happen. I really liked how the story ended. Loved this story!" 4-stars (iBooks UK Review)

#BookReview: #PoisonBloodSeries BOOK 2: ABSOLUTION


Below is the blurb and a reader's take on the second book in the Poison Blood series.

Book: Poison Blood, Book 2: Absolution
Author: Neha Yazmin
Rating: 5 stars
Download for Free:

Amazon US|   Amazon UK  |   iBooks US & UK   |   B&N Nook Store   |   Smashwords
News: Books 3 and 4 in the series are available to download now. See end of this post for details.


“I don’t know what being in love is like for humans. It never happened to me, not really. I only thought it did. Thought it for a long time. Almost half a century. But it feels as though I’ve known for longer that I’d been wrong." 

Being a senior official at The System, the vampire world’s governing body, Christian routinely assigns secret missions to his agents. As The System’s most powerful immortal, he also takes responsibility for some of the trickier tasks himself.

When he stumbles upon a project that was kept secret from him, Christian decides to investigate. Why was he not told about this vampire that his employer wants to recruit? Why can’t he get anywhere near this elusive immortal?

Soon, he discovers that this is no ordinary vampire that he is hunting. And when he is suddenly overwhelmed by a rush of strange emotions, Christian is left even more perplexed. Is any of this related to Ellie?

Book two of the Poison Blood series answers some of the questions raised in book one while asking many more.

REVIEW: 
I’ve been waiting for PB2 and it did not disappoint!  This time the narrative is from the point of view of Christian.  He is the vampire that created Ellie, but there isn’t much more to him… or is there?

I was surprised to find how much I liked reading things from Christian’s point of view.  It suddenly brings a whole new perspective to the events of PB1 and you get to learn a lot more about the way the vampire world works.  There were times when I hated him.  He enjoys the blood-lust of his kind and has no remorse for killing his victims.  But there were also times when I found myself empathising with him.  It appears that Ellie had affected him in a big way, long before he drank her blood.  Possibly he has been changed forever.  There is big problem now though – Christian’s way of ‘helping’ Ellie is likely to do more harm than good...

I’m eagerly awaiting PB3 to find out what will happen next!  I’m really hoping Christian does not get his way – but then I don’t want Ellie to get her way either!  Oh the dilemma!  Cannot wait for PB3!!!

Another #BookReview on #PoisonBloodSeries BOOK 1: REVELATION

Below is another review of the first book in the Poison Blood series. First, the blurb:

Book: Poison Blood, Book 1: Revelation
Author: Neha Yazmin
Rating: 5 stars
Download for Free:
News: Book 2 is also free to download. Books 3 and 4 are available now. See end of this post for details.

"I don't know what blood tastes like to a human.  I'd never even licked a tiny drop of it from a pricked finger, let alone suck on a bleeding cut.  The shedding of blood, my own, or anyone else's, always made me scream or panic in fear and revulsion. Now it's my only food source."

Elisia Dalton, more commonly known as Ellie, is not a typical teenaged vampire.  She still has her humanity and conscience.  Her human memories and growing pains.  And the same distaste for blood.

Still reeling from the secrets she uncovered before she was turned into a vampire by the mysterious immortal Christian, Ellie is also finding it hard to come to terms with what she has become.  And the revelations keep coming.

Book one of the Poison Blood series reveals why Ellie is not like others of her kind.


REVIEW:
I've now read Poison Blood 1 and 2 – both of which I loved and read each in less than 24 hours.  I was gripped and Neha had me turning the e-pages!  I am definitely hooked on the Poison Blood Series and now eagerly awaiting Book 3!

So let's start with Poison Blood 1 – I'll be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect.  I had read Neha's first novel Chasing Pavements which I loved so I thought I'd give Poison Blood a try even though part of me was unsure whether yet another vampire story was worth telling... It definitely was!

Yes like another reviewer has mentioned, Neha takes some inspiration from the Twilight saga in terms of vampire mythology – Neha unashamedly embraces this and I knew what to expect as I has read it in her Author Q&A – yet that's really where the similarity ends.

Let’s be clear: this is not fan fiction.  There is so much more to the vampire world that she creates, and she really does create a 'world' – with its own rules and justice system. Obviously this is a world that (unknowingly to most humans) co-exists with our world – that becomes important later on, and I'm sure it will further develop in the Poison Blood Series, as the two worlds, human and vampire, inevitably collide – but really this is a character driven story.  In fact this is where the similarity to Chasing Pavements arises – of course the story is entirely different – but Neha's characters’ depths are what drive her stories, each with their hidden secrets of course.

This is the story of Ellie, a seemingly ordinary teenage girl – who fights with her parents and hangs out with her friends – until one day she is created as a vampire. Ellie is not a typical vampire – she hates the taste of blood and abhors the thought of harming human life.  There is more to Ellie than even she knows…

Book 1 of the Poison Blood Series really is about the ‘Revelation’ (it’s good!).
