More About the Author
In additional to her paranormal romances, Stephanie also writes a thrilling romantic suspense series set in Alaska. Publisher's Weekly praised the series debut, ICE, as a "thrilling entry into romantic suspense," and Fresh Fiction called ICE an "edgy, sexy and gripping thriller." Equally as intense and sexy are Stephanie's contemporary romance novels.
A life-long reader, Stephanie began crafting stories at age ten, but didn't realize it was her dream until she was an adult. Once the light dawned, she immediately left behind "work" as the world defines it and went to "work" as she defines it, which means getting up every morning with a smile in her heart so she can spend the day doing that which makes her spirit sing.
Stephanie believes in learning to listen to your heart in order to figure out what your dreams are, and then opening yourself to the inspiration that will direct you there. She believes we all deserve the right to enjoy life, and for the ride to be as easy as we want it to be, and that we all should accept nothing less than making our dreams come true.
Stephanie lives in New England, and spends every day doing her best to fill it with people, observations and activities that uplift her soul, which include writing, hiking with her rescue dog, friends, and her amazing family.

This book starts off with plenty of action that doesn't stop until the last page. The world building unfolds with the perfect spacing - not too much information revealed at once, nor too little. The Calydons are immortal warriors with a terrible curse hanging over their heads. The Illusionists are unique people with the power to project terrifying images.
You've gotta love a hunky Alpha male who knows how to wield his weapon and isn't afraid to go all "he-man" possessive on his woman. You ALSO have to love a strong, independent woman who doesn't let him get away with being too domineering, someone you can really respect. Quinn and Grace are both loyal to the bone, making them the perfect fighting force against the evil that threatens all their lives.
The sizzling, immediate attraction between Quinn and Grace is super hot. They know they shouldn't give into the firestorm of passion, but they are ultimately helpless to ignore it. Make sure you have a fan nearby when you read this, you're going to need it.
I was so invested in the outcome of Quinn and Grace's struggles, it was almost hard to breathe as things became more complicated and the happily-ever-after seemed further out of reach. Stephanie Rowe knows how to write characters you will root for with just the right amount of tension to make the ending a true triumph.
I cannot wait to go back to the world of the Calydons with the next book in the trilogy, Darkness Seduced, which will be available on April 15th.
~Review by: Book Addict from When Pen Met Paper
Grace will not stop until she has found her sister. She is willing to do anything, even take on one of the most dangerous Calydon warriors, Quinn Masters. But he may just be her last hope.
What Grace finds in Quinn will far surpass anything she could have ever imagined. But first they will have to survive Quinn's teammates, finding her sister, the mating and each other.
I have to say a huge thank you to Stephanie Rowe for allowing me to read her book.
This was a great 1st book in Stephanie Rowe's new series: The Order of the Blade. I enjoyed the world that Stephanie created with the Calydon Warriors. The Warriors are all a rough, tough, and take their jobs very, very serious. But it takes one small woman to break through their tough outer shells to make them realize that you can change destiny.
I really loved Quinn & Grace. They are such a fun couple. They love, they fight, and ultimately have a chance to change their world.
I am very much looking forward to the next two books in this series Darkness Seduced (April 15, 2012) and Darkness Surrendered (May 15, 2012).
Why did I rate her 3 stars? One thing I find very frustrating when reading a novel is the authors inability to keep track of his/her own story telling. I found so many errors, it ruined the flow of the story. For example, leading man Quinn gets off the bed and holds Grace. Next paragraph he gets up off the bed.....how....he already got off the bed! Another example, Grace tells Quinn her sister has powers. Couple pages later she shocks Quinn with the news that her sister has powers. Grrrrr! He has blue jeans, then there black! It's goes on and on.....It's hard to become absorbed in the world the author is creating when there are so many editing errors.
Author Stephanie Rowe - Thank you for your feedback. I uploaded a revised edition which addresses these issues.
