Crimson Darkness Blurb:London is in the grip of an unnatural darkness. Rose is in the grasp of an unrelenting power and Raven and Thistle, along with their supernatural allies, are battling to survive and find a way to restore their home city.
For the fey, the song remains the same. They must return the power to Faerie or die. Unfortunately for them, the task has been superseded by an even more important one - help save Earth or perish along with it! For Rose, the stakes are even higher as she is forced to make a terrible deal that will damn her if she does and damn her if she doesn’t.
Now enemies must work together as allies if they are to save their worlds from an ancient threat…
This Book Is Intended for Adult Audiences Only.
This will probably sound weird... but this book both reminds me immensely of the Fever series but at the same time it's a completely unique story. It's dark, sexual, almost raw and primitive in the utter dark reality that London remains in the grip of. For the remaining residents, life is unlikely at best and slow torture of being eaten alive at it's worst. Even on a re-read, knowing what will happen, it still is riveting.
So rarely when authors use an ensemble of characters do you find such a well-rounded group with such distinct 'voices'. I love (and sometimes hate) each one of them, even sadistic Faye is enthralling despite her actions causing me to shudder. And the mythology in this is still unique, and the interesting names assigned to the unknowns are almost fun (that's SO not the right word but I can't think of a better one) to learn. Like the fever series, not just the supernaturals but the 'other' are so varied and numerous it almost makes my mind spin. If you are a fae lover like me, you'll get your desire and then some, but you might get a little more than you bargained for. These are NOT fairy godmothers, NOT some cute barbie doll that will grant wishes, but rather honest and both light and dark (with maybe some more emphasis on the dark). These are not your fairy tales from your youth.
While we are discussing characters... it MUST be mentioned. Roman is a doucecanoe of epic proportions in this book, but there IS method behind this madness. Have faith, even if I found that task difficult at best. Damn asshat. Too sexy for his own good too, and he even uses it as a weapon. *Shiver* Not sure yet if it's a good shiver or a bad shiver- maybe both at the same time. Rune sure does go far as a balm for my shivers, though. These pages are just teeming with every brand of book boyfriend a paranormal lover could be looking for- of either persuasion!
This is not a world I want to find myself living in, but in the comfort of my favorite reading nook it's a dark pleasure to slip into. Might make you feel a hair dirty, make you need to take a cold shower, and leave you vibrating with anticipation on the last pages... but it's worth every. single. second.
