Review @katiereus - Darkness Rising by Katie Reus (Darkness #9)

Darkness Rising
Darkness #9
by Katie Reus

Goodreads blurb:  From USA Today bestselling author Katie Reus comes the final story in the sensual, pulse-pounding Darkness series…

When a bringer of death…

Awakened after millennia, dragon warrior Reaper is ready to fulfill his destiny…until he sees Greer. With one glimpse, everything Reaper has ever known throughout his very long life is irrevocably changed. Greer’s his mate, he feels it in his blood, in his soul—but convincing her is another matter. The dragon clan healer finds him obnoxious and annoying, but he knows a woman’s interest when he smells it. And Greer smells like one word: mine.

Meets a giver of life…

Greer has spent hundreds of years using her healing abilities for the good of others, making her the polar opposite of Reaper. The ferocious war general may be an ancient, but his arrogance proves he hasn’t spent any of that time learning about women. Greer is displeased when her Alpha sends her to New Orleans with the insufferable warrior—then she sees him in action against a menace threatening to tear the city apart. Fierce, protective, magnificent…mate-worthy. Except he’s hiding something from her. Something dark and devastating that could destroy their newly forged bond. Maybe opposites do attract, but if they want to live long enough to find out, they’ll first have to save the world teetering on the brink of obliteration.

Length: NOVEL
Author note: This is the final book in the Darkness series and can be read as a stand-alone.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  I received a review copy, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I own this whole series save this one book which I will own in the future!

The cover is conservative, but he is shirtless so bonus!

This is the final book in the series, but I do believe I read somewhere that there will be a spin-off series picking up where this ends.  This is for adults only do to the steamy content and violence.

This is Greer the healer’s story and an ancient who wakes up named Reaper.  They do not get off to a great start, but they grow on each other and Reaper learns to curb his ordering around alpha tendencies.  Something is going on and when Reaper sets off to find some of his comrade in arms, the Alpha sends Greer to keep an eye on everything to report back to him.  They make some grisly discoveries and have to thwart a devious plot to harm humans.  This story had tons of action.  I enjoyed every moment.  Never a dull moment and several humorous moments.

I highly recommend to all paranormal romance fans who want a great read!
