I would just like to say this before I begin: I bought Sharon's first book, Ravenous, a while back. However, due to a large TBR pile--as I'm sure most bloggers can relate to--I did not have the chance to start the first book. In fact, it was months before I finally fished it up out of the book pile.

That was one of the stupidest mistakes of my "reading life".

I'm always pleasantly surprised when I find a paranormal romance that resonates with me. I adored Ravenous, as you will see with my review sometime soon. I haven't read Scorched yet (shame on me), but I plan on doing so immediately...or maybe I'll save it for when I need an amazing book fix, since I am positive Mac's story will not disappoint.

I would also like to mention my reviewing slump I had experienced. I read plenty of books within the past few weeks, and yet... I couldn't find the words to give any of these books justice. And boy, have some of the books I've read deserved it. Now, imagine my pleasant surprise upon finishing Unchained: I had things to say! I know I've found an excellent book when it has the ability to delight me out of a slump.

Okay, so all of that aside, I absolutely love the Carver witches. Ashe is the older sister in the family, and she is a badass slayer. She has a gun, a motorcycle, and a daughter. Strange combination for a mother, right?

Wrong. She pulls off the multitasking required of the modern day mother so perfectly, I was actually. Well. Surprised. While juggling the duties of two different lives, Ashe becomes a convincing heroine that the reader can connect with. On countless occasions, I desired nothing more than to offer a helping hand in order to ease the burdens this young woman was forced to experience.

Ashe Carver has hung up her stakes and retired from her life of vampire hunting in order to raise her young daughter. But life is just not cooperating. Fallout from her sister Holly's life changing event are complicating Ashe's life. Since Holly's powers are on the fritz as a result of said event, Ashe is covering Holly's ghost hunting gigs, and said event has also gained Ashe the unwelcome notice of some persistent vamps who are making her an offer they don't intend to allow her to refuse. And to top it all off, the intriguing Captain Reynard needs Ashe's help recover his stolen soul - all in all it looks as if Ashe's life is not going to be as 'soccer mom' as she'd hoped.

Unchained, the third book of Sharon Ashwood's Dark Forgotten, was really enjoyable. There's plenty of action and intrigue, and a touch of both humor and romance. Unlike the previous book, Scorched, in which the hero Mac was good but the leading lady was forgettable (what was her name?), both of the starring pair here are good.

Ashe has mellowed from the previous book and she's no longer trying to stake her brother-in-law. Still Ashe remains a strong character and the mellowing, along with the trials of trying to be a vanilla human, have made her much more likable. And I really liked the transition for Captain Reynard from his credo of Duty, Honor, and Discipline. It ws fun to discover the passionate man with a twinkle in his eye, a sense of humor and a surprising down and dirty side beneath the chivalrous facade and the rigid self-control.

As with the previous book, I like the way that Ashwood straddles the PNR/UF line - there's a complete happily-ever-after so this is not quite urban fantasy but the romance is less central to the story than most paranormal romance.

Ashe is a single mother, faced with some challenges. Her powers as a witch are burned out, due to a mistake she made. She has enemies from her time spent destroying vampires and demons. And her dead husband's parents are suing for custody of her daughter, saying she is an unfit parent.

Now a guard from the Castle which is a prison dimension, Reynard needs her help to save his life. Her lawyer wants her to get rid of a demon for him. And her day job as a circulation clerk may be in jeopardy, because she got vampire all over the carpet. What could happen next?

I read this book without reading the previous and the story stood on its own quite well. I enjoyed the characters and will be interested in seeing how more of them develop.

This story does have sex scene, but not to the detriment of the story.

I will definitely read more from this author.

Ashe Carver used to be a witch; a spell gone bad took away her powers when she was a teenager. Undaunted, Ashe became a monster slayer. She spent many years honing her combat skills and learning about her prey. The monsters have been relatively quiet lately, so she sends for her ten year old daughter to come live with her. Determined to be a good mom, she even gets a day job to prove she hang up her monster killing days for the sake of her child.

Captain Reynard is the Captain of the guardsmen of the Castle; a prison for monsters. He's been there hundreds of years, and his duty ends only when he is killed or the magic of the castle prison winds down. He gets to venture out into the real world time to time, to capture escaped prisoners.

But when a thief steals Captain Reynard's soul, he knows time is of the essence. He knows he has only weeks to live, and he deplores Ashe to help him find the thief and his soul. Ashe is trying to live without the monsters, but Captain Reynard is just too good looking for Ashe to ignore. His gaze alone sets her belly afire. The two embark on a journey of action, monsters, romance, and humor that intensifies until a most satisfying storyline.

UNCHAINED, BOOK 3, THE DARK FORGOTTEN is a fast-paced urban fantasy that will keep you hooked from cover to cover. Ms. Ashwood's characters leap from the pages, the romance is hot and passionate, and the monsters make me want to check under my bed. Superb and highly recommended!
