From the Author

Back in 2007, somebody standing in my general vicinity said, "Demons are the new vampire." Well, you just can't say things like that around a writer without starting the wheels turning. Having just finished writing a romantic comedy involving dachshunds, it seemed soooo inevitable to write about repentant demons and immortal alpha male warriors. In 2008, SEDUCED BY SHADOWS won the Rose City Romance Writers Golden Rose award (yes, it was an ACTUAL 24-carat gold rose) and in 2009 I got to hold my first book in my hands. Turns out, demons DIDN'T become the new vampire, but they ushered me into a new world, the world of the Marked Souls.

More About the Author

Despite a grade school career aptitude test that indicated farming would be her best bet, Jessa always knew she wanted to be a writer. Her early works include "MY POMES," a poetry chapbook rampant with unicorns and misspellings, and, later, a torrid teen cowboy romance which her editor-mother asked her to revise and resubmit, changing the love scene to "soul mates."

Now she writes paranormal romance, urban fantasy romance, and science fiction romance. Basically, anything with explosions AND kisses!

Darkness Undone is book four in Jessa Slade's Marked Souls series and she works her magic once again. Leave it to Jessa Slade to draw us in, intrigue us with her gritty urban fantasy, get us addicted to those all powerful Alpha Males, tease us with little bits of Darkness Undone, then to give us this wonderful tilt.

In Darkness we Meet Sidney Westerbrook a trained observer, one who knows how to put his emotion to the side, a geek, in short a bookkeeper. From the beginning we know Sid is not your average Alpha Male we see in the Talyans, for starters, he is human. Sent from London to work as Chicago's temporary bookkeeper and just a wee bit arrogant and condescending when it comes to the Talyans.. He knows his place and is all set to take over as London's bookkeeper as soon as his father steps down. He has come to Chicago with his own agenda, he wants to observe the bonding between male and female talyans. He wants to see what causes it and what it does to the talyans and most of all he wants to figure out why it is only happening in Chicago. For all his superiority, the Chicago team really doesn't want him there. They know he has his own agenda and feels they are the wild cards of the talyan nation..

On Sid's first night in Chicago, he is sent to his room like the good little bookkeeper they want him to be. After all, why should they trust a bookkeeper? There last one betrayed them, embezzled from them and destroyed archives. Add that to his obvious attitude, why ever would they want him around? Sid of course has a curious mind, sitting alone in his room is not what he came for so off he goes, wandering the streets of Chicago. Typical overly intelligent person, smart as can be but the common sense of a turnip.

I get to talk about the newest Marked Souls book!!!!! This series, I might or might not have mentioned, is on my very short list of series with a world that makes me want to day dream. I'm the first to admit that it's had it's ups and downs with me. I still, to this day, would cheer on someone punching Archer in the balls, but the series as a whole rocks. I think one of the things I like, beyond the nuts and bolts of what makes up this series, is the idea that, sure the characters might have the unique skills to help them overcome, but ultimately they need love to conquer the great evil. Without that very important factor, they probably wouldn't win. It's an intangible weapon the big bad guys can't fight against.

Following Vowed in Shadows is a hard task. The third book in this series scared me, because the hero could have been a hard sell. But, I think it might be my favorite in the series. That said, I really enjoyed Darkness Undone! You had the same elements that I love about this series, a well developed world, a tortured alpha hero and a heroine who deserved to be loved. Oh, and there's huge danger and possibly world domination at stake should they fail.

This series focuses on the perpetual battle of good and evil. Specifically, these books deal with demons seeking redemption through possessing a person and molding them to be an immortal, damned warrior. The battle has always been on a small scale, fighting the evils of some lesser demonic creatures, but within the context of these books, the balance is changing. Where the ranks of the talya, the term used to describe the warriors, have always been male, they are acquiring female talya. Not only that, but they have the audacity to bond with a male talya and form a new weapon.

Sidney is a nice break from the all-too-similar brooding, snarly men of the talyan. Alyce is also quite different from her predecessors: don't get me wrong, I love snarky women, but variety in a series is good. I particularly enjoyed seeing her introduction to the Chicago group; there were some nice surprises there.

The arc plot gets kicked up another notch in this volume. There's a new djinn-man to complicate the plot, Thorne, and he's much more interesting than the last one. He has a bizarre fascination with Alyce that has kept him from killing her for quite some time, but her own obsession with Sidney may upset that precarious balance. Add to that a djinn who wants to take over by bringing all the other djinn under her control--and she has the power to do it, too--and the talyan could very well be outmatched, even with the possible help of one or two angel-possessed. The plot takes some nice twists and turns throughout.

I still find the usual end-of-book strife between the romantic leads to be a little much, if just because it's nearly the same in each book. This book alone would have been fine, with a decent level of it, but as a follow-on it adds up too much.

**Darkness Undone is Book 4 in Jessa Slade's Marked Sould Series, but can definitely be read out of order as a stand alone. This book is my first step into Jessa's urban fantasy and it has it all~ Demons, humor, romance, and plenty of Kick*ss! Join Sidney and Alyce on their journey of self-discovery, passion and their part in the fight against evil. Prepare to meet up with an unlikely and bookish hero and a fragile appearing heroine who will hook you with her wit and strength.
~Sidney Westerbrook is a bookeeper for the Talyans who tries to observe from a distance as a good bookeeper is supposed to. He has been sent to Chicago to look into the rumor of Symballein bond within the Talyan league of Chicago, and prove himself worthy to step up in his father's place as London's Bookeeper . Unfortunately Sid has his work cut out for him considering the last bookeeper the Chicago Talyan had tried to destroy them with his own agenda. On Sid's first night in Chicago he decides to familiarize himself with his new town, but instead finds himself on the losing end of a fight against the ferales....That is until a tiny young waif shows up to save the day. Oh boy has he stepped into it this time. His savior, Alyce, will ensure he stays involved in her introduction to the Chicago Talyan League.

~Alyce is a Rogue Talyan *she is possessed by a Teshuva -a repentant demon* who has been on her own almost since possession. All she knows about herself is that she has a devil inside her, and has decided that she is crazy. This does not stop her from fighting the evils she sees and trying to save those she can.
