Blurb :

To touch a Dark One is death.

To talk to an immortal is suicide.

Yet, I’ve been marked by both.

A Vampire.

And the King of the immortals.

My life is no longer my own.

And now I know the truth, my life was never mine to begin with.

It was theirs.

It’s always been theirs.

 

Review : I felt that I needed a little paranormal after tons of romance reads. But when you read so many books you tend to get picky and just some “simple” story won’t do… But then you stumble over the fact that Rachel van Dyken has a new book coming out and surprise, surprise it is a paranormal romance … O wait … it is the third book in a series that means there are two books out there waiting for me. And I knew they would be perfect for my reading needs. Because Ms. van Dyken does not “do simple” – not by a long shot. Her books always have depth. She mixes elements of suspense with romance and adds a little fun just as spice. But be warned after each fun she adds there is something hiding … it might be sarcasm (still not sure if Cassius grasped that concept) and also tons of heartache (That’s when you meet a werewolf that eats pinecones instead of meat) You meet all sorts of angels, vampires, demons, sirens – she creates a world within our world and brings those supernatural beings nearer to the human world – instead of removing them to place them on a pedestal like other authors do. I read now The Dark Ones (The Dark Ones Saga #1) featuring Ethan & Genesis’ storyandUntouchable Darkness (The Dark Ones Saga #2) featuring Cassius & StephanieWhile I really liked the first – I absolutely loved the second, because I am and always will be a sucker for the dark ones (pun intended) – the bad boys … Now I am looking forward to the third book …
