The New York Times bestselling author of the DARKNESS series is returning to the sensual, action-packed world with Ian’s much anticipated story!
He thought he lost her decades ago.
Half-demon, half-dragon shifter Ian McCabe is hellbent on getting back the only woman he's ever loved. When Fiona O'Riley kicked him out of her life decades ago, he thought she was gone for good. Now that she's back, nothing will stop him from claiming her. But she wants nothing to do with him—or his family.
She'll do anything to save him.
Fiona knows that Ian is the only male for her. The only way to keep him alive is to stay away from him. But when tragedy strikes and they discover a wicked agenda for the mass murder of humans, they must work together to take down the enemies that threaten everyone. But there’s so much more on the line. As their undeniable desire intensifies, they're faced with an unbearable choice. If Fiona and Ian succumb to their temptation, mating could be the last thing they ever do.
It’s been awhile since I have ventured into the paranormal world, and while I don’t do it often, I only do it with a select few authors. Katie Reus is one of those authors. In her newest release, Saved by Darkness we are pulled into a paranormal world filled with dragon shifters, demons and so much more. We also enter a hell realm. Creepy! The world building is amazing and the characters are even better.
The main characters in the story are Ian and Fiona and they are lost lovers. They first met over 50 years ago and are pulled apart by her family. Present day they are back together to stand up against an enormous obstacle pulling in several others willing to fight along side them. In addition to fighting for their lives, their love grows stronger and just when we think they will be together, something comes in between them yet again. Ugh!
Reus does an amazing job with Saved by Darkness. She writes an imaginative story with characters that are endearing to the reader. I enjoy the relationship part of stories sometimes more than overall plot itself and this one has it everywhere from family to lovers to friends and packmates. The action scenes are great but the emotionally charged scenes get my heart racing just as much. Oh and the love scenes are so sweet and sensual yet intense.
Saved by Darkness is a fantastically written paranormal romance full of magic, romance, action and adventure. If you are looking for a break from reality, pick this one up!
Love finding a great new-to-me author!
I periodically download a bunch of free iBooks in the hope of finding a good, new author or a good, new series. I found both when I read Katie Reus' "Darkness Awakens". I purchased the rest of the series immediately. One right after the other. No finding share sites or used books. When an author puts his/her all into a novel and brings you out of your hamster wheel of life into a captivating, intelligent, and enjoyably thrilling ride he/she deserves to be compensated for the endless hours of work and emotion they put into their product. I'm very grateful for the first free book. It introduced me to an author I might otherwise never have found. I'm just now finishing the series and looking forward to exploring Ms Reus's other works
As always Ms. Reus pulls you into the story and the characters are brought to life. I laughed, I cheered, and I cried. Dragons, wolves, demons, and vampires. You can never go wrong reading one of Katie's books.
