Editorial Reviews

Review

"Castle demonstrates considerable skill in crafting a tale that offers readers a conflict-ridden forbidden love interlaced with political intrigue and betrayal . . . The author's world-building is intricate and cohesive . . . plenty of action . . . I like Castle's voice and look forward to reading more of her work."―USAToday.com on Midnight Reckoning

"Castle's world-building is superb and leaves readers wanting more."―Romantic Times on DARK AWAKENING

"4 1/2 Stars. HOT. Power acquisition and consolidation are driving the action in this exciting series as the vampires of the Cait-Sith bloodline strive to break free of their former masters. Intriguing characters add a well-rounded feel to this tale that is also packed with treachery and drama. Pick it up today!"―RT Magazine, RT Book Reviews

"Rising star Castle is sure to please with an exciting new series. Passion and loyalty collide as the hero is forced to re-evaluate the choices that have driven his life."―RT Book Reviews on DARK AWAKENING

"[Dark Awakening] grabs you from the first page and the next thing you know you've been reading for several hours immersed in Lily and Ty's world. I adored this story, was sorry it ended so soon and have put the next in the series on my wishlist already. Fans of the paranormal romance, urban fantasy and vampire genres should put this on their wishlist."
BittenByParanormalRomance.com on DARK AWAKENING

"I am always thrilled when I find a new spin on the vampire mystique, and Dark Awakening certainly fits the bill. An amazing story of ancient dynasties, class divisions, curses and blood feuds, this book has opened new and exciting views into vampire worlds...The problem with such a new and detailed book is there is so much information I want to impart, but the most important thing I can say is READ THIS BOOK."―You Gotta Read Reviews on DARK AWAKENING

"Kendra Leigh Castle has set the stage for a phenomenal new vampire series which will take the paranormal genre by storm. DARK AWAKENING has one of the most interesting and well-thought out vampire hierarchies that I have encountered in a vampire novel. Vampire novels just don't get any better than this!"―FreshFiction.com on DARK AWAKENING

I love this new and exciting world that Kendra Leigh Castle has created with her Dark Dynasties series and the second novel in it, Midnight Reckoning, continues the thrilling journey into the dark world of vampire factions and bloodlines by adding werewolves into the mix now!

Since the Lilim reformed with his best friend Ty and wife Lily, taking in the Cait Sith's, Jaden Harrison has felt adrift - without purpose. Taking a walk to clear his head Jaden smells wolves and pursues the smell intending to kick them out of vampire territory. When he arrives on the scene he's not surprised by what he finds but by whom he finds, the she-wolf from when him, Ty and Lily were in the safe house; Lyra who is an alpha's daughter. Taking out her attackers, Jaden doesn't receive so much as a thank you from the wolf but he does come by an undeniable attraction towards her. Unable the get Lyra out of his head, Jaden travels to her house, in the middle of pack lands, to return her necklace that was dropped during her attack.
Fighting off potential mates is just SOP nowadays for Lyra Black, at least until she can come out victorious at the Proving and become pack Alpha. But wolf packs are still archaic at best, viewing females as lesser then males, and the Thorn pack is no different. And the dark and sexy vampire Ty that keeps popping up is a distraction that she does not need right now. When he arrives at Lyra's door though to return her mother's necklace and her father persuades him to stay and teach her to fight, Lyra knows that she has a long battle ahead of her, and not just in the physical sense.

A deliciously intriguing plot, a fantastic cast of characters and a steamy romance, makes Midnight Reckoning one hard book to put down. I was totally consumed by this story as soon as I read the first paragraph. And page after page Castle delivered exceptional world-building and characters I grew to adore. She has a way with words, and strings them together so eloquently I could picture everything, from smells, to beautifully painted skies. Each word was chosen with care, and reminded me of the ever talented Gena Showalter's writing style (think Lords of the Underworld). So what makes Midnight Reckoning worthy of your undivided attention? EVERYTHING.

Characters for me make or break a story. If I am not invested in your characters, then essentially I am not invested in your novel. Castle's characters are by far some of the best. Our reluctant hero, Jaden, was swoon-tastic! He was the type of Alpha Male females yearn for, die to be near, and kill to touch or taste. He is a Cait Sith, or a vampire who shifts into a cat (yes you heard that right). He also had a horrific past, one that will make even the toughest person melt. Jaden was it for me, my new book boyfriend (Sorry Lucien). I couldn't help but love the tough boy persona, while craving his gentle heart. Lyra, our female MC werewolf, was also a very likeable character. The only thing she truly wanted was to secure her birthright as the future Alpha of her wolf pack, something that was anything but an easy task to accomplish. Immediately, Castle created tension between her hero and heroine. And those two together provided hilarious banter and nonstop action. Though they danced around their feelings until Jaden offered Lyra a proposition, the result became a tug-of-war between forbidden love, undeniable lust, and incredible want.

Midnight Reckoning, the second book in Castle's Dark Dynasty series, picks up a few months after the end of Dark Awakening, with the newly freed 'gutter blood' Jaden adjusting to his freedom - and trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his immortal life - when he happens onto a wolf shifter planning to improve his position in the world by forcing the werewolf 'princess' Lyra into a mating. Jaden's help gets here out of that sticky situation, but leave him unable to get her out of his mind after she heads back home - but he finds an excuse to follow and ends up not being shredded to bits by her alpha dad but giving a job instead, even though cats and wolves definitely do not mix - ever.

I liked the first book, Dark Awakening, but I loved Midnight Reckoning. Even though the leading man, Jaden, is a vampire - a cat-shifting vampire, which make my shifter-freak-self purr - there wasn't as much vampy stuff in Midnight Reckoning since the story moves to the hometown of the wolf-shifter heroine Lyra. I liked both of the characters a great deal and I liked that the forbidden relationship builds with a lot of sensual tension but hold off on the steamy stuff long enough that the leads have plenty of time to get to like and respect each other. And while Jaden is not the uber-alpha hero, he is a strong yet supportive one so I can actually see an eternally ever after for these two.

So I really enjoyed Midnight Reckoning which gets just a bit less than 5 stars, because I wanted to actually see the event that was mentioned in the epilog. Now that I've finished Midnight Reckoning, I am caught up with this series for two more weeks until the third book comes out. So two books off the pile (yippee!
