The Redeeming (Tain's Story) September 2008
The Immortals series is a joint venture for three different authors. The first, fourth and fifth books are by Jennifer Ashley (AKA Allyson James). The second book is by Robin T. Popp, and the third by Joy Nash.
If you haven't read the first book, you really should before reading this one. It's a great story (I liked it more than this one.) and it sets the stage for the series.
If you have read it, you can skip this next paragraph:
The paranormal beings in this series are witches, demons, vampires, "The Immortals", and shapeshifters. "The Immortals" are five sons of the Celtic gods and goddesses. (Adrian, Darius, Kalen, Hunter, and Tain) They were created to protect the world from death magic. (Death magical beings include demons and vampires.) After several millennia, the Immortals have been all but forgotten. In the past, witches would chant "The Calling" spell to summon the Immortals for help whenever evil threatened. Those of the 5 whom are still fighting evil today, are doing so at their own leisure. Once these brothers realized that they could live in freedom, they each went their own way. They have not seen one another for hundreds of years.
The world of magic is divided between those who live in "life magic", and those who live in "death magic". Life magic lives in the Immortals, good witches, the Celtic gods/ goddesses, and shapeshifters. Death magic lives in demons and vampires. For millennia, they have battled. Now, some vampires are joining with the beings of life- magic to prevent demons from overtaking the world.Read more ›
Darius and Lexi will take you through the streets of New York as they attempt to stop the death magic from overcoming the life magic. Their relationship erupts from a build up of unleashed passion and untold feelings into an emotional experience that will touch your heart. The story's trail of intrigue flows endlessly throughout the plot with plenty of action and passion. Well developed and memorable characters will pull you into this exciting story and hold you captive to the climactic end. What comes next for the Immortals is now left to Joy Nash as she continues this series with Immortals: The Awakening. I recommend Immortals: The Darkening as a definite keeper for the excellent reading pleasure the Immortals are giving me and I look forward to the next Immortal story.
The hero was very memorable and intriguing. Covered in tattoos that can be removed to be used as weapons Darius is an immortal warrior who has been held in near isolation, removed from the Earth realm, for 700 years. His snotty and overprotective mother curses him so that he can not find love with a mortal woman. This way he will always return to her. He struggles to free one of his brothers who has been tortured for those same seven centuries and restore balance between good and evil.
Our heroine is a werewolf who also happens to be a witch. Yeah, so how does that work? If we've always been told you have to have special powers to be a witch how come any were creature can just decide to control and pool all their magic into a witchy form? That and the fact that our heroine she was well...a bit slutty, make me think maybe those loose ends are why I didn't enjoy the story as much as I could have. The fact that all the heroine wanted to do was rut with anything because it was the full moon is more than a little over done. Is she supposed to be like that for a week every month?
The heroine also has an annoying party girl/studious reporter best friend who keeps getting herself in trouble where she then must be saved. But she is a wood nymph capable of teleporting herself. Um, why can't she just rescue herself then? Alert her to danger than watch her pop away.
Hopefully the next installment will be better, otherwise I may give up before the end.
