With number 10 in the Dark Ones series, MacAlister shows no signs of slowing down. The author’s clever use of humor and hilarious situations continues to keep the series fun and fresh. Although there is a quite a bit of jumping backward and forward in time, MacAlister makes it quite easy to follow the characters and their adventures. The romance is flirtatious and enjoyable, the characters are interesting and the world in which they live has depth and adventure. Overall, a very pleasing read that will continue to delight fans of this series.

Iolanthe is a woman who hasn’t had the best luck lately. She is more than happy to accept her cousin’s invitation to enjoy a summer in Austria. Stories of a haunted forest entice her into exploring, and explore she does — right into the 18th century. Nikola is a Dark One, cursed by his half-brothers, doomed to live forever. When Iolanthe suddenly appears, making ridiculous claims of knowing his daughter 300 years in the future, he thinks she’s insane. But she also sparks a feeling of lust he is tempted to take further. She also seems to know his future — including his fate at the hands of his vicious brothers. (SiGNET, Sep., 352 pp., $7.99)
