From the Author

Lauren Dane's "fresh, fun, fast-paced"* series comes to a thrilling conclusion as the heat of all out war fans the fires of an otherworldly romance...

The bombing that almost killed Owen witch Molly Ryan has worsened the tensions between the humans and the Others. While the Others desperately campaign to prevent the passage of a law that would strip their people of all rights, the human separatists develop an agenda far worse than anyone imagined. With her position more precarious than ever, security head Helena Jaansen finds herself relying more and more heavily on her personal guard, Faine Leviathan, and, despite her better instincts, falling more deeply into the intimate connection that they share.

As Helena and Faine's explosive passion grows, a deadly separatist plot is discovered, one which could bring ultimate destruction for the Others, and war breaks out between the two opposing factions. With the Others forced into hiding, Helena must overcome her fear of repeating past failures to save her people--and her heart--before it's too late...

More About the Author

The story goes like this - While on pregnancy bed rest, Lauren Dane had plenty of down time so her husband took her comments about "giving that writing thing a serious go" to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it before it gave up the ghost. Even better, she sold that book and never looked back.

Today Lauren is a New York Times bestselling author of over fifty novels and novellas across several genres.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Wild Darkness is the final book in Lauren Dane's Bound by Magick series. It the conclusion of the escalating war between the Human extremist groups and the Others. Fans of the series will be thrilled with this action packed novel. Dane focuses on character development and world building, like no other author in the genre. With political intrigue, personal betrayals and a whole lot of sensuality, this novel is one paranormal romance fans won't want to miss!

Lauren Dane is probably one of my favorite adult romance writers. She knows how important it is for the erotic aspects of the book to be in balance with the rest of the story. If one side or the other is out of sync, that element overshadows the whole book. Dane has a knack for getting it just right. She has great character development, great world building skills and some mind boggling sexual moments in each book. The Bound by Magick series is one of my favorites by Dane for a lot of reasons.

In the second book in the Bound by Magick series, Chaos Burning, the Others, the supernaturals among us, were outed to the public and now the fall out has brought the society to an all out war. In Wild Darkness, the conclusion to the series readers are treated to some climatic battles and more political intrigue and machinations than you might find in the Obama camp. It's fast paced and has that 'hanging on by the seat of your pants' atmosphere that makes your heart speed up a little bit as you read. I thought Dane did a spectacular job of bringing it all together and making it make sense to the reader.

The world building in this series has been top notch from the first book, but I think Dane's ability to tie up all of the loose ends in this one was very well done.

Political intrigue, suspense, brutal battles, betrayal, soul searing love and sensual chemistry are all here and more. In this the last book in the Bound by Magick series Mrs. Dane provides an amazing amount of information on the supernaturals that populate her books. While I would definitely recommend you read the previous 3 books in the series you could read this as a stand alone and not be disappointed. It does that good a job with background information. That being said, the characters are all so interesting it makes you want to have a more intimate knowledge of their own personal stories. Although this novel focuses on Helena Jaansen and Faine Leviathan it's also like reading a political blueprint for the fracturing of a country, the United States.

The book starts with a community center being firebombed by Human separatists groups. Whether it's PURITY or the other bigoted racial group Humans First the humans involved against the Others wants nothing less than to completely eradicate them. Working with everything from terrorist attacks and members of the Senate the extremist use some dirty tricks that provide an interesting twist. Faine finds Helena "magnificent" from the beginning of the book. He can't resist the warrior she is. His main problem is trying to get Helena to take care of herself or at least let him take care of her. Helena is dedicated to protecting the Others at the expense of her own safety and health.

While we are being treated to Helena and Faine's story many of the characters from previous books make appearances. I'm glad Mrs. Dane worked something out for Senator Sato. Hated to see him miss out completely on love. Loved the interaction between Helena and her sister Lark.

Wild Darkness released last week and is the fourth and final book in Lauren's Bound By Magick series. While I'm not happy that this is the end of the series, I really loved the action and suspense of Wild Darkness. I would definitely recommend reading the first three books in the series to fully understand, but you won't be sorry you did! In WD, there's a crazy conspiracy plot, war between the factions, and Helena having to make tough choices and stand up to save her people. Can we also talk about the cover? Yum! Which turns us to Faine. Ah, Faine. He's by far one of my favorite heroes in this series, and the fact that he respects the heck out of Helena as a fellow warrior is icing on his cake!

Helena Jaansen is head of security in the ever-escalating war against most paranormals. Witches, Weres, and even vampires need to work together to thwart the mages and normals whop seek to exterminate them. Helena's personal guard, Faine Leviathan, was introduced in an earlier novel as a powerful and likeable force of nature, and when he finds himself attracted to Helena, he is irresistible. Good plot, great continuation of the series.

Helena Jaasen is the head Hunter for the Gennessee Clan and a strong witch who isn’t happy that her people and all Others are now having to fight against humans to survive just because they are different. The battles are getting worse and lots of people on both sides are being hurt and killed. Helena’s primary job is to keep the Gennessee safe but as the Others join together to keep their people safe, Helena is selected as the security head for the new coalition. Like her life wasn’t intense enough, but Helena has never turned away from a battle that will keep those she protects safe and she won’t this time either.

Faine Leviathan is a Lycian prince from Lycia – a land on the other side of the Veil – and Helena’s brother-in-law. He crossed the Veil in order to help the Others fight a battle that is quickly becoming a war. He has been alive for a long time and experienced many wars so his knowledge and help are greatly needed. As the events are turning more deadly, Faine has traveled to California to help Helena and has been greatly impressed by both her abilities and her fighting style to keep those she protects safe. When Helena is elected as the head of the new security team put together by the Others’ coalition, Faine is given the job of being her personal guard.

In the mist of deadly battles, constant red alerts and threats to them personally, Faine and Helena also face the fact that what they feel is much more than respect – it’s a passion that could change their lives. It quickly becomes apparent that the hate mongers are willing to kill everyone including small children to keep America pure. Helena and Faine are on the front lines as the battles turn even more deadly and yet they find the time to explore the passion that is binding them.
