Review - Out of the Darkness by V.M. Black @VMBlackAuthor (Taken by the Panther #1)

Out of the Darkness
Taken by the Panther #1
by V.M. Black

Goodreads blurb:  A Former SEAL Panther Shifter and a Tough, Curvy BBW in Search of Answers

Curvy Tara Morland has always known there was something different about her, but she never knew why. Then one day, the panther took over her mind and transformed her body, and her world was forever broken.

Former SEAL and panther shifter Chay “Beane” Bane has made a career of rescuing other shifters in difficult situations, secreting them in his vast compound far from the prying eyes of the government. But when rescues her from a military facility, he isn’t prepared for what he finds. Tara is twenty-four years old, older than any natural-born panther shifter should be.

But to find answers, Tara will have to learn to control the beast within herself. And Chay must grapple with discovering what he thought he’d never have.

About the Author:  I'm currently working exclusively in the Aethereal Bonds world, which I've mapped out to be big enough to let me tell all the different kinds of stories I want to share with readers. It's got vampires, demons, weres, faes and more--all sorts of creatures that are great fun to play with.
I live near Washington, D.C., with my family. A proud geek, I love fantasy, romance, science fiction, and historical fiction.  I’m a compulsive dreamer, and I feel spoiled to be able to make a career out of imagining things!

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***Received a copy of the ebook in exchange for an honest review

The cover is sexy and beautiful and definitely attracts my eye.  Both man and cat are amazing :)

Okay my usual statements first, this is a serial series, and it is not complete yet.  It is a novella length somewhere about 90 pages long. If you do not know what a serial is, it is like a TV show where this is just one episode or part to the whole.  I used to shy away from them, but I have found a few authors that I really like.  As in all things in life, some do serials well and others not so much.  This is my first experience with V.M. Black’s work, and I really liked it.  She has a perfect mix of mystery, intrigue, steamy scenes, and this new world that I really like.  Her writing style is easy to connect with, and you can visualize everything which makes the experience awesome.

Tara is a trooper, and she has no idea what is going on.  You can sense her panic and relate to her easily.  I’m not sure on what of think of Chay, but I do like him, and he is very sexy.  This world is definitely unique, and I can’t wait to see what happens next….even though I hate waiting.  Patience is a virtue, right?  o_O

I recommend this to my cat lover shifter friends, but they do have bear and fox friends too ;)  If you do not like reading incomplete serials, you may want to wait, but I couldn’t do it….wait that is :)

Interested in reading???
