Review: Parched by Z.L. Arkadie

Titel: Parched (Parched #1)
Author: Z.L. Arkadie
Release date: July 22nd 2011
Edition: Kindle
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

What it says on Goodreads:
“Baron Ford, he says and pauses to pick apart my expression, attempting to read how familiar I am with that name. I nod stiffly to give no indication I know exactly, who that is. I’m shocked to hear that name in this setting, at this stage of my life, the one far away from Cambridge, Massachusetts over five years later.” 

Advertising Exec, Clarity Parker thought she’d never see Baron Ford again. Five years ago, they shared the date of her life and then he literally vanished into thin air. Now he’s back and has asked that she, exclusively, be assigned to his multi-million dollar account. 

On the day the fog rolls in, not only can she no longer avoid him but she can no longer avoid herself. See, Clarity has an ability that she’s run away from her entire life. She’s learning an ability like hers doesn’t come for free, and something or someone is trying to make her pay for it with her life. 

Her world is soon turned upside down after she escapes to a place called Enu. It’s here Clarity learns who and what she truly is. She also learns that Baron Ford is Baron Ze Feldis; he’s a vampire, and what bonds them runs deeper than anything she can ever imagine. 
Their bond is further tested when they end up not only battling Baron’s psycho ex-vampire girlfriend, who wants Clarity dead but also “the evil” as they journey in search of the book which holds the Prophecy of the Seven Seeds. 
One thing’s for sure, from this point on, their lives will never be the same. 

What I have to say about it:
This was an amazing book.
It has a great story and wonderful characters. It's well written and I thought it was original.
Clarity is a nice character to be and it's fun to be kind of all knowing through her.
Baron Ford is great, but also a little creepy and Viesel Egos is kind of wierd but likeable in strange way.
The story takes place at a lot of different locations which makes sure that there is a lot variation in the story-line. I loved the plot-twists and different relationships that are formed and broken in through-out the book.
I can't wait to read "The Seventh Sister" if it's anything like this book, it's going to be amazing


  1. This sounds really good!

  2. It was good, not your ordinary vampire-story :)
