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.*
Marissa van Dyke has nightmares. Really real ones at that. When one steps over the boundary between real and dream, she begins to question her sanity. In this first book in the Mythical Knights series, we meet a team of Templar Knights dedicated to stomping out naughty paranormal types. We also meet a group of hunky werewolves and a coven of vampires that really should know better.
Marissa is a girl who hates Halloween, so dreaming about monsters just doesn’t do it for her. Her parents were murdered on the day and she tries to keep all reminders as far away as possible. When her friend invites her to a Halloween party, she initially says no but as she gets to know a certain hottie werewolf those plans are up for grabs.
Neil Drigan isn’t interested in settling down. Quite the opposite really. But when a certain sexy woman crosses his path, he can’t get her out of his mind-or his dreams. He keeps getting out of his cage on full moons and a mystery surrounding what he’s been up to brings the Templar Knights sniffing around where they don’t need to be.
All isn’t well. A series of blood rapes are happening and everyone is stumped. It will take these supernatural forces all working together to stop it before Marissa’s worst nightmare comes true.
I enjoyed the premise of this book. Monsters, nightmares, Halloween…It was fun. Some of the opportunities I had were the short chapters (I would have made fewer chapters with separations), occasional stilted language and fight scenes that needed more elaboration. There were also a lot of characters and it made it hard to keep up with the story.
Overall, I liked the book. The heat level during the erotic scenes was nice, but again the dialog between the characters was strange. The shifter mate trope was used well and I think the series has some really great potential. Marissa was someone I liked and wanted to see happy and I think Neil may just be her knight in furry armor.
Let the fur fly!
