But since the first book, Darkness Awakened, I was pleased to see that Katie Reus tried to give a genuine attempt at adding a twist to the PRN/UF romance. Finn Stavros (Alpha Wolf) and Lyra Marius (vampire royalty) have legitimate history. One riddled with heartbreak and success. Moreover their illicit past has quite possibly initiated the beginning of an apocalypse. For the first book I gave it a 3.5 stars.
The second book, Taste of Darkness, is where I really started to develop a taste for the series. Victoria (the Wolf Healer of the Stavros Pack) and Drake (the tormented Dragon Shifter) is the spice I needed to keep me entertained. I don't know what it is that kept me riveted. Was it their combined innocence, Drake's dark edge or Victoria's intelligence? Whatever it is I eagerly followed their blossoming romance. Solid 4 - 4.5 stars.
The final book in this box set, Beyond the Darkness, took me by surprise. Truthfully I was going to skip right on over to another love/plot (ssh it's titled Into The Darkness) but common sense prevailed. So I started my descent into the twists and turns involving Keelin Petronilla (youngest in the Petronilla Dragon aristocracy) and Bran Devlin (warrior Alpha Dragon). At first I was annoyed. All of my peeves were playing out in front of me. As the electronic pages turned on the Kindle and my mind wrapped around it, I began to eagerly devour it. A huge part of the reason why I couldn't put it down was because of the entry of demigods. If I was to base my rating on the primary characters it would come in at a 2.5 stars. But because the of clever workings of world building and character development I will give it an overall 4 out of 5 stars.
Now I'm off to 1-click Hunted By Darkness.
The first installment of Katie Reus' Darkness series is HOT. It starts with a bang and keeps going from there. Reus has created a world of shifters, vampires, demons and everything in between. Her characters are easy to identify with and complex.
You start with meeting Finn, and wow is he yummy. He's the Alpha of Stravos pack and meet him in the middle of killing demons. As the story unfolds, you meet more and more of the pack, including his Guardian, Gabriel, and the healer, Victoria. Enter Lyra. She's strong and independent, but still needs help finding her kidnapped daughter, Vega. Oh, but she's keeping secrets that could destroy the strong bong reconnecting between her and Finn.
The action is non-stop, the plot moves forward and the characters are amazing. You need to add this to your TBR list if you haven't already!
Taste of Darkness:
You meet both Drake and Victoria in Darkness Awakened. They're front and center in the second installment of Katie Rues' Darkness series. After spending a millennium in Hell, literally, Drake needs to learn how to function in a completely different world. He was only 12 years old when he was sacrificed, so he had little to prepare him for the 21st century. Not only does he need some help adjusting, he's struggling with living with who and what he was in Hell, the things he did to survive.
Victoria was taking in by the Stavros pack. She's a healer, but not only that, she is a walking, talking font of random, and very useful, information. The problem is, her pack doesn't acknowledge she is an adult. They want to keep her safe, but at the same, they are stifling her by not letting her be who she wants to be.
Add in Drake's clan, who are overjoyed to find him back from the dead after 1500 years, a traitor that wants nothing more than to sacrifice another Petronilla dragon and mating manifestations and you have a trill ride. Keus has created a very complex world that is exciting and characters that are compelling.
Beyond the Darkness:
When you first met Keelin, she was still trying to get her bearings in a world that had changed drastically while she was in Protective Hibernation. All she wanted to do was exert some control in her life and be independent. After they lost Drake, her parents sought to keep her safe, but they only managed to make her feel powerless. Bran has always felt lesser because of what he considered a flaw. But he knows what he wants, even if doesn't always believe he deserves her.
Now dragons are disappearing, and Bran will do everything in his power to keep Keelin safe and convince her that he's her perfect match. Katie Reus does an amazing job of taking you on the journey of Bran learning how to be protective, without being controlling. He wants a partner, he just has to convince Keelin it's her. Keelin also learns that freedom doesn't mean she has to push everyone away. She has to learn she's stronger than even she gives herself credit for.
