The one man she wants is the one man destined to destroy her.
Sooner or later we all end up dead. Jace Cutler doesn’t have the luxury of staying that way. After receiving a fatal stab wound, he awakens in a hospital room in Portland, Oregon, with no memory and a big hole where his soul used to be. Worst of all is the glow. Everyone is surrounded by a strange white aura he hungers to possess, none more compelling than the one enveloping Dr. Lia Benson.
Lia has always been ruled by reason, refusing to put stock in such nebulous things as destiny. Until Jace dies in her arms, then miraculously comes back to life. Whenever he’s near, her soul responds and her body burns. And she’s consumed by odd dreams she’s convinced are Jace’s lost memories.
When Lia is kidnapped, Jace tracks her and discovers a shocking explanation for who—and what—he is. Something no longer human, a dark legacy that until now has lain dormant within him. Something that could destroy the one woman he’d sacrifice everything to protect.
Warning: Contains bone-melting sexual tension, scary battle scenes, heartrending emotion guaranteed to keep you turning the pages well into the night, and a positively divine hero who may just steal your soul.
The "Dark Souls" series by Anne Hope was a real pleasure to read and review. The series will appeal to readers that enjoy a paranormal romance with plenty of steamy love scenes.
I also enjoyed the way the author explains what the paranormal twist is to the reader at the same time the characters are finding out. It really draws you into the series.
It's also a fast paced, suspenseful drama that has a villian that is a worthy adversary to our warriors . I was glad that I could pick up the next book in the series immediately so I could continue on with the story.
The characters are well written and the world building was vivid enough that I could imagine a whole other world walking right along side ours.
This series is geared for adults due to the detailed writing of loving and fighting... Sometimes at the same time:)
