The Rock Star of Dark Fantasy Dark Secrets by Madeline Pryce

Dark Secrets

Book #2 of the Dark Series

DS

We have triumphed!  It seemed like everyone and thing in the world was against me reading this book.  But even with the constant interruptions we persevered, me in not giving up and the author in writing a story so compelling, that even with my atrocious memory I had no problem getting right back into the thick of things.  And the thick of things is normally where I found myself.  Ella and Micah went from one adventure to another.  Talk about intense, you best sit on your hands if you don’t want to bite your nails, and the sexual tension is a five alarm fire with no rescue in sight.  Fans and ice cold drinks are a definite must.

I went back and reread Dark Cravings and Dark Innocence which I highly recommend reading before reading Dark Secrets.  I absolutely enjoyed the experience and was reminded why I fell in love with Madeline Pryce’s writing.  I did wonder how she was going to top Dark Innocence, since that was my all time favorite book ever written.  Yes, that was past tense, because she did it!  I didn’t think it was possible.  I didn’t think she could come close to the emotions she evoked in me with Dark Innocence, but not only did she succeed, she surpassed.  Now here is my dilemma, I wanted to give her six stars of five for Dark Innocence.   How do I rate Dark Secrets?  Seven stars?  We are going to have to change the rating system.

Micah and Ella are once again thrown into turmoil, fighting to keep their family together and safe.  To protect each other and understand the love and mate bond they have for each other.  Is it the bond or is it real?  Would the other be there without the bond?  This is just one of the questions Micah and Ella must answer.  They must deal with growing powers and responsibilities, and of course the ever growing amount of people and things that want either want them dead or want to control them.

I laughed, I cried, I think I cussed a time or two. I know I definitely cheered, I might have swooned, I certainly drooled.  But most of all I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  I bow to Madeline for an awesome read and for dethroning Dark Innocence.  I didn’t think it was possible.

I was given this book free of charge by the publisher for an honest review.

Dark Innocence

Book #1.5 of the Dark Series

Dark Innocence

Awesome, Spectacular, Tremendous!  This book has totally surpassed my expectations and they were high as I rated Dark Cravings 5 stars.  Dark Innocence was even better.  This book is so well written the author is able to draw you in from the very first page and keeps you turning the page till the last.  I was so engross we could have had an earthquake and I would have just taken my tablet and moved under a doorway and kept on reading.  The interacting between the main character sizzles, but it also makes your heart catch.  Some of the supporting characters bring some very interesting scenes to this book that will make you laugh and stand up and cheer.

Micah has been dethroned and Dante has been crowned king.  He is the ultimate in male heroes.  Just thinking about him makes me sigh and not just from his looks.  The way he treats Hannah is enough to make me weep with jealously.  Then there’s Hannah she’s not the brilliant, insecure, air head from the first book.   Unable to forget one second of the pain and torture she’s endured she’s on a downward spiral of drugs, booze, and meaningless sex.  Dante is the one to give her the desire to find the strength within herself to pull out of it.

All in all I give this book a six because it was beyond amazing.

Dark Cravings

Book #1.0 of the Dark Series

10006213_1513641032195665_598562030_n

This book was awesome. I just finished it earlier this evening. Wow, talk about smoking. I think the fire alarm went off. I am on pins and needles waiting for Dark Innocence, (Hannah and Dante’s story). The excerpts and summary of Dark Carvings did not prepare me for how blown away I was with this book. It was beyond awesome

Ella Grey a half/vampire and Micah MacGregor her Shadow hunter partner are hit with a lust spell by a Succubus.  These two previously hostile partners spend the next four days having hot, hot sex.  The only problem is this pesky little prophecy about the two of them getting together causing the destruction of all.  Ella is beautiful, tough, yet loyal.  And Micah is hot, shoulders to die for, mysterious, and just as loyal.  The supporting characters are just as loveable, except maybe the bad guys, Micah and Eli’s dad, and the vampire Queen to name a few.  This is a definite must read.

CE-Re-Cuffs-Surrendered

No one captures the seductive line of life and death in vampire romance like Madeline Pryce. Claiming Ecstasy was everything I love about the genre: dark, dangerous, sexy, and the fight for survival against a predator who could take everything, but give you so much more in return. Another incredible winner.” — USA Today bestselling author Dawn Montgomery
