About the Author
USA Today and NY Times bestselling author Candice Gilmer leads a dangerous double life as a mommy and a writer. In between boo-boo healing and fixing broken toys, she writes stories usually to the tune of children’s television shows. Growing up in the Midwest, Candice stays close to her family, especially the ones with basements when the tornadoes come around. All in all, she stays very busy, but really, she wouldn’t have it any other way. Well, maybe a little less children’s television.

Ooh, I really am liking these stories featuring the Drigan wolves. This book is Neil's story, he's the second oldest after David. He's always been the playboy in the group, but lately he's had that itch under his skin. He's unsettled and doesn't quite know why. That, and there's a scent that continues to play on his senses that smells of flowers and death. He needs to track it.
When he finds it, he discovers Marissa. Marissa has had a hard time. Her entire family died on Halloween, the holiday that used to be her favorite. So this is a really hard time of the year for her. Add in to that, strange dreams, an ex who's acting weird, and unexplainable bruises...this year is a little bit harder than most. The one bright light in all of that is Neil...even though she really doesn't understand him and his actions half the time.
This is the perfect read for this time of the year. Halloween plays heavily into the story and it's all perfectly creepy and eerie with lots of things that go bump in the night...literally. Marissa is being stalked, but since her memory keeps getting erased, she has no idea that it's going on. She already has issues with the time of the year, the Templars are NOT helping things. She's confused, but a lot of that is not her fault.
Then there's Neil...poor guy. He's doing everything he can to do the right thing...to be the good guy, and every time it seems like it's costing him the girl. Because she doesn't understand, and he can't tell her. But he's also half wolf...he's not going to give up his woman or let her be hurt.
It was a good book. I enjoyed the relationship, although Neil was my favorite. One of the Templars kept describing Marissa's soul as fractured and that was a good description of her. She's broken so it's hard for her to respond the way she should. She's trying to protect herself, even though as the reader you can see that absolutely, Neil is the best thing for her. Like I said, that just made me love Neil even more. Knowing that he will always protect her and have her back even if she won't allow a relationship...sigh...that's commitment, and seriously, how can you not fall for a guy with that kind of commitment.
I loved getting to see David and Kelsey again in this book and loved watching their mechanisms from the sidelines as they tried to get Kelsey and Neil to their happily ever after. I love how protective David is of Marissa. That familial devotion is something that she needs desperately. In fact, knowing after all she's lost, that she'll have the pack as her family now is just perfect. She needs that to heal.
I liked this one and if you're looking for something a bit spooky, but with romantic leanings for this October's reads, this is a good choice!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
The attack came suddenly. One moment she was walking to her car, the next she was on the ground and trying to avoid her attacker. She was vaguely aware of a wolf who came to fight off her attacker, and she watched that monster fly off into the night sky while the wolf stayed beside her keeping her safe and warm.
Neil should have been safely locked up at his family’s compound this night of the full moon. It was a precaution he and his brothers took so that the power of the full moon would not overtake their own common sense. Werewolves were not known for logic during that particular phase of the moon. Yet here he was, racing across the parking lot tackling this monster who dared to lay his hands on this woman… a woman who smelled of floral perfume. He didn’t understand why, but this woman was special to him and no one would harm her.
Dark Within brings us Neil and Marissa’s story. As the second oldest son, Neil is considered a playboy, a man who will never settle down. For Neil it’s more a fear of letting go of his control and a conviction that there is no special woman out there somewhere for him alone. Marissa is a wounded soul. Her friendship with Kelsey has gone through some changes since her marriage to David. They no longer had the time to spend endless evenings together and of course there was the not really trusting or believing in their whirlwind courtship and marriage. Yet it is to Kelsey that Marissa turns for help which brings her into closer contact with Neil.
There is an underlying sense of urgency, of battle lines being drawn and an army collected – from the enemy’s side. Right now the mystical beasts of town really don’t yet know the full extent of the danger they will be in. Neil will continue his pursuit of Marissa – and she will continue to hold on to her memories of the past. Until one night changed everything for them. And they both must decide what their future holds.
I enjoyed the second journey into the Mystical Knights series very much. We are getting more details of the lore and lives of the Drigan pack as well as more glimpses of the evil that is gathering. Marissa’s past must be faced before she can more forward, and Neil will wait a lifetime if he must for her to come to him freely and without fear.
If you love Paranormal Romance, especially shifter series, then Dark Within is an intriguing, compelling, and charming story to sink your reading teeth into.
*I received an e-ARC of Dark Within from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. That does not change what I think of this novel.*
