Book Review - Darkness Awakened by Katie Reus

My Thoughts

Lyra appears back in Finn's life after 16 years asking for his help to find her daughter who has been taken. The kicker is that she is his daughter too. When Lyra came to tell him, he broke it off before she could. Then she was shunned from her coven and has been on her own with their daughter ever since. Finn is still in love with her and has been searching for her all these years. He had to break it off to protect her from his father. Now he wants her back, but first they have to find their daughter. Someone has taken her to fulfill a prophecy that involves taking her blood and more than likely her death afterwards. The ritual will open a hellgate and release demons into the world. Not only will they have to work together, but their coven and pack will as well.

Katie always knocks my socks off with each book and this one was no different. Lyra and Finn are off the chart scorching together and can kick ass to boot. I so love that there are some more love matches happening in the people that surround them as well. I so look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.

I give Darkness Awakened 5 hearts!

About the Book

Years ago he ended things between them to protect her…

As leader of one of the fiercest werewolf packs in the south, Finn Stavros is in full battle mode 24/7. He has no choice—he’s one of the few beings strong enough to fight the Akkadian demons, whose mysterious escape from hell threatens the entire world. With the battle turning bloodier by the second, Finn is ready for anything…until his vampire long lost love shows up on his doorstep in desperate need of his help, sending his heart into a tailspin. He agrees to help her, unaware that she carries a shocking secret that will turn his life upside down.

This time, he’s not letting her go…

Vampire Lyra Marius curses the day she met Finn. The ruthless werewolf promised to love her forever, but he rejected her instead—before she could share her life altering news. Pregnant, kicked out of her coven, and cast aside by the love of her life, Lyra struggled to raise their rare shifter-vampire daughter Vega alone among humans. When the 16-year-old is kidnapped and used to fulfill a frightening prophecy, Lyra swallows her pride and turns to Finn for help. But how long can she fight her feelings for him and keep him from guessing the truth about who Vega really is? As they race against the clock to save their daughter, they must defeat the lethal threat imposed by demons infiltrating the human world and a hell gate that could not only reveal their existence to mankind, but destroy the world in the process.
