Genesis, the heroine, is a human who has spent her life serving the immortals. She understands her place in the world and when her number is called to work for the immortals she is surprised to find out the job she has been called for isn't exactly what she thought it would be. She has been called to mate with a Vampire King. Ethan is a vampire who has suffered great loss in his life. Although he knows it is his duty to mate, he fears he will never be able to love again. As Ethan and Genesis are put together, their relationship blossoms into a lasting bond that no darkness can pull apart.
Told in dual POV, The Dark Ones is an NA Paranormal Romance full of action and suspense. The writing style is free-flowing with magical characters living in a fantastical world. The passion between the main characters was tender and the emotional development that takes place between them is explored thoroughly as the plot unfolds. The supporting characters play a pivotal role in the series as they enhance the plot significantly with their magical powers and contribution to this world.
Overall, I highly recommend The Dark Ones to my Paranormal Romance reading friends. Rachel Van Dyken has an addictive writing style that flows naturally from one moment to the next. I am 100% invested in discovering each and every facet of this world! Cassius' story Untouchable Darkness is next and he is already loaded on my Kindle!!!!
Part of this could be the way you know NOTHING going in and information is doled out in drips and drops. All the immortals know, but us poor dumb mortals not so much. On the one hand you have a good idea how Genesis felt, on the other hand it was irritating for me.
I could not settle in and enjoy the story because I had no clue what was going on. All of a sudden Genesis decides Ethan is the one, I don't know why - I thought she had more chemistry with the werewolf. There was no point in this story where I actually felt Genesis and Ethan were believable. I felt like the chemistry was between the immortals and Genesis was just along for the ride. I wanted to know more about Ethan and Cassius than I did the couple.
Maybe I was in a wrong mood, maybe I am missing something great based on the other reviews. This book had moments of fantastic mixed in with blah for me.
Very sad not to have a new series to love and follow.
The Dark Ones has a great story line, great characters like Ethan the handsome vampire, Mason the funny werewolf, and Alex the caring Siren, just to name a few. This book has funny moments and many heart warming moments, along with a few twists and fun surprises. Overall it was a great read!!!!
