3/5 Stars!

Love how this author always delivers the hot and smexy! Cutlass and Chloe were pure fire together.

Unfortunately, that’s all I felt they had for most of their story…lust. Cutlass won me over before the end though when all he wanted was for Chloe to be safe and happy…with or without him. Loved that! Chloe seemed too self-centered for me. She swung from hot – ballsy, independent woman; to lukewarm – my life sucks, come to my pity party; to cold – you lied to me – hypocritical, much? She made one bad decision after another, always regretting them, but continued right on with choosing the wrong path.

This is a good read, and I’m always ready to see an author branch out, especially one I admire as much as Ellis Leigh, but this read fell a bit short for me. Along with bringing the steam, this author also usually nails the relationship aspects of mates and friends. I just didn’t feel the chemistry between Chloe and Cutlass outside of sex. I also didn’t see enough of Hudson and Maverick to discern personalities enough to understand why Cutlass was the leader.

But again, it was Cutlass’ big old alien heart that had me smiling. His heart was breaking without Chloe, and I was glad matchmaker Ampetheia finally relented in the end. And the plot twist with HER? VERY cool! (Even though every time I saw her name, I wanted to call her ‘Amphitheater’! – HA!) Cutlass also brainstorms and saves the day…and again, Chloe benefits. Hmm.

Looking forward to Hudson’s story – he seems fun, and it was hilarious the countless times Cutlass mentally plotted his death!

4/5 Stars!

Finding fated mates is always a shock, and takes some thought, explanations, and time. Whatever. Adrian Olaru threw all of that out the window and claimed his mate. YES! There would be time to think about it…later.

Angelina Sanz was on board one hundred per cent, although her issues with low self-esteem got to be a bit annoying. I give her credit though, for being a survivor. Despite all she’d been through before being turned and after, she was still standing. I understand why the rogues looked down on her…because her nature was different from theirs, but what was up with Vivian and that, “She’s a nobody” line? She gets a virtual smack in the back of the head for that.

I’ve been with this series from the beginning and I know the characters and their backstories. That being said, the story bogged down in spots for me and seemed redundant – going over backstory points several times. (How many times do we need to know Bella’s (Teague’s mate) a demigoddess?) Even the ‘sneak peek’ into Nicu’s story is the backstory of the vampire/necromancer centuries old war. Perhaps the author wants each book to stand on its on outside of the series, so includes backstories in each volume to flesh out the current story. *Shrugs*

Always good to see other members of the Shadows and the royal family. While they’ve taken on the responsibility of keeping the vampire nation safe, this close knit group still has each other’s back when it comes to protecting their mates. I’m definitely on #TeamAlin! The Queen seems to be a woman for all situations. Warm and ready with wise counsel when needed, and out for blood when you get on her bad side…which the necromancers have done…again. She’s ready to end it once and for all – and I’m ready for Nicu’s story!

Another good installment to the Dark Shadow series.
