A paranormal romance noval come to life. With a very hot leading man. Finally something really steamy for adults in the paranormal tv world.
I was recommended this series actually through Facebook. Took me awhile to actually commit to trying it out.... BEST DECISION EVER! Wow the caliber of acting is stellar! The most binge worthy series I have started in a long time!! Take a shot you won’t be disappointed! I don’t usually post reviews but saw a few negative ones and couldn’t let that stand when I knew what a treasure I found! The books are amazing as well! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SHOW! I tell everyone about it!! Now the worst thing about this series is that Season two hasn’t been filmed yet.... Off to read the books!!!
It is rare when there is an adult magic/ fantasy series that is grounded in reality with adult conversation that is not comical or campy. The actors are top notch and you will enjoy watching.
After spending hours and I mean hours reading the trilogy, I couldnt wait for the TV show. I waited for over a year for this. The books were excellent! This show left a lot to be desired. I was very ecstatic to see Matthew Goode playing the role of Matthew De Clarmont and I thought he did a brilliant job. Teresa Palmer on the other hand was horrible. Her acting was mono-tone and unenthusiastic. She actually bored me thru the eight episodes. For me she was very hard to watch! What happened to Marcus? Wasn’t he a blond haired surfer dud in the books??? The actors playing the other parts were great though but I just couldnt get into this fantastic love between witch and vampire. I really hope Teresa improves in the second series because to me she was a real disappointment. To understand the greatness of this trilogy, read the books first to see what youre really missing. Yes, they used lines from the book but the story they created for TV doesn't compare...
Such good writing. I’m reading the series now and can’t wait to see it play out. 💕
I haven’t read the books, but after I saw the first episode, I know this show is going to be amazing..!!
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the novel, I came to this series with high expectations. I am sorely disappointed. Very superficial. I understand the difficulty in adapting the character and plot development of a nearly 600 page novel into eight 44 minute episodes, but it appears as though high level sketches of character and plot were literally thrown together. The acting in parts was terrible. I bought the series in the US store, so only one episode has been released. Maybe future episodes will be better. If you haven’t read the book, I assure you it’s infinitely better than this series.
As of the writing of this review, i have seen the preview and the first episode, and I can't hardly contain myself. If the rest of the show had been available, i would have spent my whole day watching and rewatching. As it was, i watched the first episode again because i just couldn't get enough. What happens next?!?
After all the vampire shows or witch shows that I have seen, this feels very real and rustic. It does have its cliched moments but still worth a watch.
I’ve read/listened to the All Souls Trilogy multiple times and while of course some things are different it is still fantastic and sticks to the important things. Defiantly worth a watch.
I am so thrilled to finally have the opportunity to watch this show! The storyline is incredible, and the actors are the best. Please add more od the episodes:)
The colour palettes for this show is amazing. Everything is filmed beautifully. The actors are great, and I’m so excited to watch the rest of the season
The show seems great but I'd just like to know why the episodes are not available yet in Canada while the season is over since january 2019 and available in the us store
One of my favourite shows!! Matthew Goode makes a great vampire! Can’t wait for seasons 2 and 3
