Giveaway and Book Review: Forgotten in Darkness by Zoe Forward

Forgotten in Darkness
Scimitar Magi, Book 2
by Zoe Forward

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publisher: Wild Rose Press
Release Date: 1/03/14

Our Review:

I enjoyed this story! Word of caution – if you haven’t read book one in the series, Dawn of a Dark Knight, which I hadn’t, you’re in for one heck of a ride trying to lock down the many names and characters and the world they all live in. So my first suggestion would be – read book one. If it’s as good as Forgotten in Darkness (I suspect it is), then you will be well rewarded for your efforts. That being said, if you read Forgotten as a stand-alone, you will become accustomed to everything after 2-3 chapters, and the action and information in the first 2-3 will keep you locked in, anyway.
Scimitar Magus Dakar is yummy, smart and heartbreakingly devoted to the woman fated to kill him, time after time, life after life. Archeology student, Shay McGinnis, for her part, remembers nothing of her past lives, and cannot comprehend why she would ever feel compelled to kill Magus. Their love is inevitable, but is their fate?
  The action is smart and unrelenting, the characters vivid and very likable. Ms. Forward has done a wonderful job weaving an intricate and imaginative tale. Well done.
-Cary Morgan Frates

About the Book:
After an unjustified two-century stint in purgatory, Scimitar Magus Dakar returns to the human realm, 
renewing his eons-old curse. Once again he must murder the woman he loves. To break the vicious 
cycle, he must kill her before she strikes her deathblow, something he's never done in the past.
Archaeology grad student, Shay McGinnis, suffers a near-death attack in pursuit of a piece of Scimitar 
Magi lore.  But did the magnificent warrior who pinned her to the wall injure her or the daemon he 
fought?  In her search for answers, she draws the attention of both an ancient evil sorcerer and the 
warrior Dakar. The attraction between her and Dakar is instant, and for Shay confusing. She wants to be 
with him, but intuition equates him with death. Not random death. Hers. 
Will this be the lifetime they break the curse before they are murdered by an age old enemy or worse 
kill each other yet again?

Series: Scimitar Magi, Book 2
by Zoe Forward

Publisher: Wild Rose Press 
Publication Date: February 18th 2013 
Genre: Paranormal Romance

About the Book:
In the shadows of our world, a secret band of warriors fights to protect us. They are the last line of defense against an evil no human can stop.
An ancient nemesis has resurfaced. Duty demands that Ashor Vlahos, Scimitar Magi commander, recruit a magical healer to fortify the remaining eight magi. The gods' choice is the woman who helped him escape torture a decade ago. Ashor couldn't have imagined a better punishment for his vow-breaker homicidal incidents than for the gods to bind him irrevocably to the only woman in the universe he cannot have. The soul-searing desire she ignites in him is strictly forbidden.
Kira Hardy, M.D. is a brilliant, hardworking internal med resident with big secrets. But when Ashor asks 
for aid after a brutal daemon attack, she is sucked into his dangerous, secret world. Enslavement to the magi, no matter how hot they are, may be an unattractive life plan, but being targeted for death by their enemies is less tolerable.
She must trust the sexy, tormented Ashor to keep her safe while he must deny his ultimate desire and keep Kira at arm's length lest he bring destruction down on them both. As a centuries-old evil catches up to them, they face a crucial decision--follow the gods' rules or follow their hearts.

*Warning: Contains explicit sex, graphic language, action-adventure, and an exceptionally hot tatted hero.
