Review @katiereus - Sentinel of Darkness by Katie Reus (Darkness #8)

Sentinel of Darkness
Darkness #8
by Katie Reus

Goodreads blurb:  She thought she’d put her past behind her…

Local artist Keva might be human, but she knows about the things that go bump in the night. Years ago, a dragon shifter saved her from certain death. Ever since, she’s lived in his clan’s territory and put her life back together. But the feeling of security is only an illusion, because her past has come back to haunt her. A past with claws and fangs, demanding blood.

He’ll do whatever it takes to defend his mate…

Dagen has finally met his mate—except he insults her the first time they meet. He’s not too proud to grovel to get back into her good graces. But when a threat from her past emerges, he realizes that he’ll do anything to keep her safe. Even if it means dying—or losing her forever.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I own this whole series and many other books by Katie Reus!

The cover is mysterious with tatted mystery man!

This is the 8th book in the series, but it is the first book that I’m reading in the series.  It is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content.  While it is not necessary to read the books in order, I’m pretty sure you will love it even more if you read them in order.  I’m going back to start book 1 next as I do own them all! 

The story starts with a chase scene which also gives you Keva’s back story and how she came to know Conall.  Then it jumps to present day and a meeting she has with Dagen.  They get stuck together for a little bit, and then things get bumpy.  He knows she is his mate, but she is not looking for a relationship and her past comes back to bite her.  Dagen goes into protector mode.  This story was awesome, and I couldn’t put it down.  It has not hooked me on this series and world.  Now I have to go read all the books!  I love this crazy mixed paranormal world!

I highly recommend to any paranormal fan who loves shifters, vampires, magic, action, mates, and more!!
