Description

"Rowe is a paranormal star!" ~J.R. Ward

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe rivets readers with her thrilling entry into the dangerous, sensual world of the Calydon warrior, where lust rules, honor thrives, and death looms over all. No warrior is safe from his own darkness, or from the woman destined to love and destroy him.

Quinn Masters will stop at nothing to rescue his rogue teammate. To save his blood brother and ensure his brand of justice triumphs, Quinn will break every rule of his kind and partner with the sensuous, courageous woman destined to be his ultimate destruction. 

Haunted by a brutal past, Illusionist Grace Matthews will risk everything to save her kidnapped sister, including putting her life in the sinfully capable hands of an immortal warrior whose ravaging kisses and intense passion propel her ruthlessly toward a fateful destiny she can't afford to believe in. 

The Calydons are a race of ancient immortals cursed with a dark side. Each Calydon is destined to meet his soul mate, to be so drawn to her that he is unable to resist bonding with her through the rituals of his race, but their destiny is to destroy each other and all they care about the moment their bond is complete.

"A fast-paced plot with strong characters, blazing sexual tension and sprinkled with witty banter, Darkness Awakened sucked me in and kept me hooked until the very last page." ~Literary Escapism

"Rarely do I find a book that so captivates my attention, that makes me laugh out loud, and cry when things look bad. And the sex, wow! It took my breath away. The author keeps the tension high from page one.  The pace kept me on the edge of my seat, and turning the pages. I did not want to put this book down... This one is a must read." ~D. Alexx Miller, Alexx Mom Cat's Gateway Book Blog

    I have fallen in love with The Order Of The Blade. I never thought I would find a series I like as much as Gena Showalter's Lords Of The Underworld... But this series is giving TLOTU a run for its money!

    I can't even begin how to express the awesomeness of this book! Obviously from a seasoned author with creativity oozing out of her pours. The characters are relatable, even in their supernatural states, the love scenes are tasteful and hot, and the plot line is exceptional. I would recommend this author without any hesitation.

  • A lot of promise

    This book held a lot of promise, but fell short of my expectations. There were a lot of dialogue between Grace and Quinn about their feelings, and destiny, etc. and this is all happening while they are in the middle of a battle or other urgent situations in which one would expect action rather than a dialogue. Also, there are love scenes or kissing that seem to be out of context. Again, these things are happening in urgent situations that one would not expect the characters to be engaged in such actions. Overall, the storyline is good. It is just sometimes hard to get past all the sappy parts.
