After Dark

Paranormal Romance – Vampires – Demons – Angels

The Darkest Angel 

Winged warrior Lysander has been alive for centuries, and yet he’s never known desire-until he meets Bianka. Spawned from the bloodline of his enemy, the beautiful but deadly Harpy is determined to lead the untouched Lysander into temptation. He may try to evade her attempts, but even the most iron-willed demon assassin can resist for only so long…. 

And from debut author Kait Ballenger 

Shadow Hunter 

Vampire hunter Damon Brock’s first assignment with the Execution Underground is Rochester, New York, a city crawling with the undead. But he isn’t the only hunter in town gunning for vamp blood. Tiffany Solow is fierce and ruthless when it comes to slaying the monsters that destroyed her family-and she works solo. But being alone is no longer so desirable when she meets the mysterious hunter who wants more than just her turf. As they work to massacre the local covens, the line between good and evil blurs when they are forced to decide between their lifelong beliefs… and their newfound hearts.

After Dark by Gena Showalter & Kait Ballenger


Shadow Hunter by Kait Ballenger #0.5 (Execution Underground)

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. WOW what an ending to Shadow Hunter. I can’t wait to read more and find out what happens. Kait Ballenger got me hooked. I enjoyed her writing style and I look forward to check out the rest of her Execution Underground series.

We get action, sex, and a cliff hanger ending that leaves you wanting. Damon and Tiffany’s sexual tension is great, well portrayed. I liked learning about the Execution Underground and the world these characters live in. We get a peak (file only) of a new team that Damon has picked out for the new EU deviation of Rochester, NY. And the ending was spectacular.

The Darkest Angel by Gena Showalter #4.5 (Lords of the Underworld)

What can I say. I’m a hug fan of Gena’s work. I enjoy the world & characters that she creates.

The Darkest Angel is a fantastic read. We learn more about the Lords and a peak at the women in their lives or soon to be. I like when a novella follows closely to the main books in a series and how they give us more information on characters and overall story.

We get humor, sex, and a great balance between the main characters. Lysander sets out to take Bianka as a “project” to help show her light and changer her evil ways, but he doesn’t plan on the sparks and attraction that ignite between them.
