Book Description

AMAZON BESTSELLING SERIES
Adult Urban Fantasy Romance - Book 2

Months after moving to the mysterious city of Cognito, Silver is developing her gifts as a Mage and learning how to live under new laws. She is forced to give up her old life and live in secret among the humans. There is finally hope of leading an ordinary life . . .

Until Logan Cross walks into it.

Their chance meeting leads her close to discovering the identity of the nameless Mage who once stole her light and discovered the unique power she possesses. That knowledge poses an unimaginable threat to Silver, fueling the search to find out who he is before he finds her.

Lives are at stake. Truths are revealed. And an unexpected passion ignites.

"An outspoken woman makes the world a livable place. You have fire in you, and I would never put that out."

Review

Selected as the READER'S FAVORITE & REVIEWER TOP PICK on GraveTells

"These are the best to-date reads for 2012! Love her style. I hope she writes until forever."
- Tamara Rose Blodgett - New York Times Bestselling Author


Defining and painting a paranormal world that is different than ours is not easy. Sometimes it falls flat, sometimes author's ask us to suspend too much of our reality and the world becomes cartoonish. Sometimes, it's not enough and you lose fact that you are reading about para-normals. Dannika nails it. I believe every word of it. I'm buying what she is selling.
- Parajunkee

"I recommend it to all readers who love strong female protagonists, some magic, a lot of excitement and a splash of romance."
- Unconventional Bookviews

Those who can appreciate excellent world building and like something a little off the beaten path will enjoy this series. As I said, I am SMITTEN with it.
- Reading the Paranormal

"It is a rare book or series that comes along, that I love so much I want to re-read it. Well, Ms. Dark, you have won my heart and I have re-read your work."
- Pure Textuality

"
Twist was an awesome follow-up novel and did not disappoint. Dark's extremely well-rounded characters and fabulous supernatural world-building are so well written and does not leave the reader wanting."
- GraveTells

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than Sterling! March 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow! Book 2 does not disappoint! This was none-stop action and sarcastic dialogue that met or even topped Sterling (Mageri Series: Book 1). All the same great characters behaving badly and searching for answers, disobeying the rules, and some even finding love.

Silver and Adam have not talked since he became a Mage, but she is missing Sunny and needs Adam's help to see her. Adam has also revealed himself to his best friend Knox and the four of them meet together to catch up. Sunny is shocked to find "Zoe" alive, but they quickly revive their friendship and Sunny reveals Marcos rejection of her after Silver's disappearance and her belief that he was to blame for it. This revelation starts the action ball rolling as Silver, Simon and Justice try to find out who was responsible for Silver's attack and why. There are new and exciting characters introduced such as a Chitah named Logan Cross (sigh, fan, sigh!), a Shifter named Finn and a Sensor named Eli who Silver met at a bar called Hell. Now, that was an interesting and well named establishment! In the end, this book had a kidnapping, a lot of fighting, fleeing, falling in love and most importantly the continued strong friendships that makes this story worth reading.

Dannika Dark's fantastic writing style shows through again, making this a fantastic second installment and exciting to read. Her one-liners always make me chuckle and inevitably, I have to stop and read them out loud to the family. A lot of this story is dependent on knowing what happened in book one so I would recommend reading Sterling first. But if it has been awhile since you read Sterling, don't worry, Ms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! February 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Twist is the sequel to Sterling (Mageri Series: Book 1), a book about a woman who is brutally attacked and turned into a mage and finds herself part of a dangerous, magical side of the world she never knew existed.

This one starts off with Silver chafing a bit under Justus' tight restrictions. She clearly respects him and understands that's he's trying to protect her, but she has her own ideas of how her life needs to be. Throughout the book, she disobeys him to either do things that she thinks is right or that she has a right to do. This dynamic could have come off like a self-centered teenage rebellion against a father figure/love interest, but I think the author succeeded in crafting an arc for the relationship between Justus and Silver that makes sense for two adult characters. She is a grown woman with very understandable issues about control and independence, and he is a controlling, honorable, very old (very hot) man who is uncomfortable with affection and not really human. They don't see eye-to-eye, but they both want their learner-ghuardian relationship to work. I don't know if it worked evenly throughout the book, but overall I liked it. I also liked what the author did with Silver's other relationships in general. More on that in a minute.

Although Silver's immediate nemesis, Samil, died in the end of the last book, we know that the mysterious Benefactor is still out there, and the action of this plot is driven mostly by Silver's side trying to get the Benefactor and the Benefactor's attempts to recapture Silver. The action is good, and we get to find out a bit more about the Breeds, but those aren't the best parts of the book.

The BEST part is the romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done! February 29, 2012
By PK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Twist" did not disappoint me, except when I got to the last page and was left wanting more! I was very sad to see I had finished the book! The last page Dannika threw in was nice...love the picture and caption!

As with many sequels, an author will tend to waiver and go off in directions that can frustrate many readers. This was not the case with "Twist" - Dannika stayed true to her original characters, while adding new characters that I instantly took a liking to. Especially Logan - OMG...savored every sentence involving him!!

The sequel was shorter than I anticipated. I mean, a lot happened for sure, but I still felt like it was short, and I wanted the story to develop more than it did! That said, I still loved it. I'm going to read it again!

I highly recommend this sequel to anyone that has read "Sterling" - and if you haven't read "Sterling", read it - you will not be disappointed. I cannot wait to see how the next sequel plays out, and I really hope that Dannika does not take too long a respite before sharing the next installment with her devoted fans! Job well done, Dannika!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THIS SERIES!!! February 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You know a book is good when you install the kindle app on every compatible device because what else should I be doing at a red light but reading this book??

I just love the creativity and style of her writing. Nothing is predictable with this story and even though I know who i'm rooting for (Justus), I love the twists and turns of Silver's life. Once again, I finished the installment with a big smile on my face. Not an "omg" what's going to happen next but when the third comes out, I will put everything on hold and pick up where I left off. It's a feel good story, leaves you wanting more and I hope we get it soon!
