KING OF DARKNESS
Action-packed and sexually charged, this book will draw you in from the opening scene. Vampires and wizards collide in well-drawn battles, where humans are occasional casualties. Additional subplots further drive the story. Key characters go missing, setting up a sequel.
No one is more shocked than Isabel when Thad claims she is his mate, so she runs. When he catches up with her, he reveals they have matching scars and are destined to unlock powers together, powers he’s not yet experienced, which are imperative for him to possess if he is to reach his full potential as king. She’s not quite a believer until they’re in a confrontation with wizards and she unleashes her prowess. Unsettled after the big fight, Izzy goes out for a walk and strays too far. Soon everyone is in an uproar trying to find her — especially Thad. (SOURCEBOOKS, Feb., 352 pp., $6.99)
