Book Review - Darkness Descends by Alisha Ashton

My Thoughts

Skye has been hunting vampires. Not just any vampires though. They are her brothers who were turned by a monster who then turned on her and tortured her for years under his command. On the night she kills the last of her brothers and fights alongside the Ashers everything changes with one bite...a wolf bite. Rescued by the Ashers from him, she is taken by Miko to Scotland to find out everything possible about wolves especially since she is a rarity. There she finds her heart, her best friend, family, and a purpose.

I can't even tell you how much I loved this book. Skye kicks ass. Serious warrior chick. Even more so once she's changed. 
Taran...oh. my. Perfect match in every way. He shows her just how precious she is and what it is to be loved and cherished. And um...that car scene...scorching hot! 
I mean break the thermometer hot! 
Then there's Ciaran...holy hot guy that likes to play!
I so adore him. He lightens both Skye and Taran with 
his sense of humor. These men complete her.

Darkness Descends has everything I love in a book...romance, action, humor, and even a few tear jerking moments. I loved each and every part of it. You absolutely need to read this one. It ranks up there in my top ten reads this year. That's how much I loved it. And the's just the beginning.
I can't wait to see what happens next.

I give Darkness Descends 5 hearts!

About the Book

Skye Faden has had a crappy decade. Seriously. She survived nearly ten years of torture, then escaped and killed the vampires responsible for the deaths of her entire family. She should - by all rights - be free to spend the rest of her days on a warm, sandy beach somewhere. 

Unfortunately, those plans are quickly derailed by a bite-happy werewolf. With just a few days until the full moon and her first transformation, Skye has no choice but to accompany her ADHD-prone handler, Miko, to Scotland in search of answers. 

Faced with a supremely sexy ancient werewolf (woof!), a hushed prophecy about how her arrival will trigger a war, and a handful of unexpected new supernatural abilities, Skye is in for one hell of a ride. As the shaky truce between the breeds races toward its abrupt and violent end, she must unlock the mystery surrounding her identity and uncover a secret of betrayal that has been kept for over 4,000 years. Piece of cake, right?
