Review @katiereus - Beyond the Darkness by Katie Reus (Darkness #3)

Beyond the Darkness
Darkness #3
by Katie Reus

Goodreads blurb:  Now that she has her freedom, she’s not giving it up.

Dragon shifter Keelin Petronilla spent centuries in forced hibernation dreaming of one thing: freedom. Now she’s living life on her terms—she’s ditched her clan for an unruly wolf pack, she tends bar for a half-demon, and she’s loving it…until a powerful supernatural being targets her. She intends to handle the mysterious attacks on her own…without the help of dragon Alpha Bran Devlin. Sure, he’s sexy in that hot, scowling possessive way, but Keelin wants to live her own life in her own way.

Now that he’s found his mate, he’s not letting her go.

Former black ops agent Bran Devlin is a born dragon Alpha and leader of a fierce clan. Getting mated was never part of his plan—until a feisty dragon princess gets under his skin in a big way. The hell of it is, she doesn’t want a mate; she just wants to have a good time. He plays along, but when a dark and powerful being marks her for death, he’s determined to stay by her side in spite of her protests. Now that he’s found his mate, he means to keep her safe no matter what the cost…even if he has to risk it all.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  I bought this book back in 2015, 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 very subdued, and you would know it is paranormal except for the small dragon that gives you a hint.

This is Keelin and Bran’s story!  Keelin is Drake and Conall’s sister, and Bran is the Devlin Clan’s Alpha.  Keelin is staying in Biloxi because she wanted some freedom.  A month later, Bran shows up.  There is all sorts of drama, fights, danger, and as usual demons trying to hurt them.  This time Keelin is the target, but they are trying to figure out why.  This was another action-packed book, but I don’t want to give anything away, but we have lots of new faces who show up.  We also have some favorites from the other books who return like Finn, Vega, Drake, Rhea, Conall, and Victoria!  I love this world and how they are making alliances and helping each other out!

I highly recommend to any paranormal fans who love complex worlds filled with all types of being, action, fights, treachery, mystery, intrigue, and mating fire!
