Tempest was raised in a cult environment where her life was far from happy. Instead of wallowing with sadness, regret and resentment, she has chosen to be positive, optimistic and happy. I find her character very brave and strong; I immediately found myself cheering for her.
Merrick, (newest favorite character name!), is a Dark One who is bent on revenge and a life of service because he was unable to save his sister from her untimely death. His last desire or hope is to find his own Beloved. As some know, sometimes what you need the most is what you may think you want the least.
The two are destined to find one another and to be together no matter what. Their journey of discovery of love is filled with action, humor and passion.
This book has become an instant favorite!
Tempest Keyes (so very aptly named) has freed herself from a cult when her father died, and she is now chasing down items on her bucket list. One that's near the very top - meet a Dark One and become a Beloved. Her aunt has assured her that their existence is very real, and Tempest is sure she can get the job done. She hadn't counted on "her" Dark One - Merrick Simon - being such a control freak though. She realized that it would be quite a task, after all, she's read all of C. J. Dante's books, but really! She can take care of herself, and Merrick really does need her, even if he's fighting her most of the way.
I love Katie's books and characters. They make me jealous and have me laughing out loud, sometimes simultaneously! Tempest lives up to her name, and I know that Merrick will have exactly that - a tempestuous life, a very long one - with her in it, but they will both be better for it!
Between rescuing Merrick, rescuing Kelso (a stray white dog), rescuing her friend Ellis, Tempest has her life going crazy and I think deep down she loves all of the turmoil. Should be interesting when things settle down, but since they are still looking for the bad guys, she'll be living in interesting times for a while yet.
If you like vampires (oops - Dark Ones) and a great story, grab any of Katie's Dark Ones novels. You'll thank me!!
Anyways I did like it, it was a fun read and I can't wait for the next one to come out. I do like this series a lot, some more than others though. I'd rank this one near the bottom with my favorites getting 5 stars. Not that this is a bad story, it's not. It was very well written and very professionally written as it should be considering who wrote it. So if you have read the other ten books before this one I'm sure you will enjoy this one too, some more than others but I think most will like it.
This story is no exception! Totally awesome Katie, can't wait for the next one!
