REVIEW - Taste of Darkness (Darkness #2) by Katie Reus
Release Date: 24 July 2014
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 Opinion 5 STARS
Another great book in this series where so much happens to keep your attention. New characters were introduced and we have two possible new pairings with Conall and Rhea and then with Bran and Keelin.
Drake and Victoria head up together to see a vampire who may know more about dragons when they are attacked and Victoria is poisoned. With the emergence of his brother and sister it is a race to get back to the Dragon clan to heal him mate.
We learn more about Drake and his claim along with childhood memories and his memory comes back in parts along with how his time in hell was spent.
Gabriel is still in this novel with just small roles for Finn, Lyra and Vega. Really loved the new characters that were introduced and didn't get the baddie until he was revealed. It wasn't the one person I thought it was.
I look forward to seeing who is next to get their story.
