Review @katiereus - Taste of Darkness by Katie Reus (Darkness #2)

Taste of Darkness
Darkness #2
by Katie Reus

Goodreads blurb: He spent more than a thousand years imprisoned in hell…

Drake is an ancient dragon shifter, one of the most powerful beings in existence, but a millennium trapped in utter darkness has left him ill-equipped for modern society. If it wasn’t for Victoria, the sweet female brave enough to befriend him, he’d be lost. She’s smart and gorgeous and everything he never dared dream of during his years of agonizing loneliness. He may not have anything to offer her, but one thing he knows for sure: he’d die to keep her safe.

Only to fall into the heaven of her touch.

Victoria is a wolf shifter, healer of the Stavros pack. She’s seen a lot, but she’s never met anybody quite like Drake, the fiery, fascinating shifter who can blaze through the skies unseen by mere mortals. He’s lost, dangerous, and the last male she should fall in love with, but the more time she spends helping him navigate modern life, the deeper—and hotter—their connection becomes. She’s thrilled when they finally locate his family, but reuniting with his people plunges them both into unimaginable danger. It’s a race against the clock trying to figure out who wants them dead and who they can trust, especially when the threat is closer than they ever imagined.

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 and the awesome dragon tat that gives you a hint.

This is Drake and Victoria’s story!!  There is some excitement when Drake’s brother and sister show up as well as other dragons that are flying near the pack land.  Drake and Victoria take a trip to learn more about Dragons, but they are followed.  All sorts of trouble and mysterious attacks, and the danger of not knowing who sent Drake to Hell.  This was another action-packed book!  I loved reading this book too!  Katie has created an awesome mixed paranormal world full of intrigue and danger that pulls you right into the stories!  I can’t wait to read more!!

I highly recommend to any paranormal fans who love action galore, mystery, battles, and all sorts of paranormals!
