The Dark Ones by Rachel Van Dyken


6 HUGE Stars|Amazon|Goodreads

Even if you aren't a HUGE fan of Paranormal, if you are a RVD fan you will love this. This novel has all the things we love about a RVD story with a fantastically developed new world. A cast of characters that stays with you long after the story is over, sells the deal that this is a 6 star read. Welcome to a world of dark secrets and harsh realities. A world that I didn't want to leave. I absolutely adored Genesis and Ethan's story. It was full of hardships and emotional breakage, but it also had its fun and light moments. Genesis is summoned by The Dark One (Cassius) to be of service. This is something that she had been prepared or her whole life, and it is nothing like what she was told. A vampire, a dark one, two sirens, and a werewolf. This is the new life Genesis has to adjust to. When things go awry, Ethan has to claim her as his mate. Everyone's fate depends on it, depends on her. From this point on, things go farther quickly and it is a wild ride. Matings, a prophecy, and a whole lot of secrets are just some of the things that we encounter in this epic read. I don't want to give anything away. The best part about this book is all of the things you don't see coming. The mystery of it keeps you anticipating what each chapter will bring. Don't pass over this read, you will regret it! This is a PNR that can appeal to everyone, even if you don't like PNR reads, it has its aspects that will works for any type of reader. A story about finding true love and overcoming all of life's terrible obstacles. These characters are all faced with hard truths and once some items come to light, their lives will never be the same. I can't WAIT to read the next installment in this series. It is going to be a top read for me for the year without a doubt!


To touch a Dark One is death. To talk to an immortal is suicide. Yet, I've been marked by both. A Vampire. And the King of the immortals. My life is no longer my own. And now I know the truth, my life was never mine to begin with. It was theirs. It's always been theirs.
