Our Review:
The much-anticipated Dark Redemption is a good follow up to Fall of Darkness, and with its powerful cliff-hanger ending, I’m not sure my heart can take the anticipation, let alone the wait for book three! Kate and Dominic are back together – thank goodness. But wait, now both sides, the werewolves and the vampires, want them dead at any cost. What a thing for these mortal enemy factions to agree upon.
The writing, per usual, is clear, descriptive, and pulls the reader in from the first moments. Unlike the first book, however, Dark Redemption slows in the middle, so that we may enjoy a special moment with the happy couple. This slowing takes up too much time in my view, especially since we know the whole world is hunting the pair. Regardless, there is plenty going on before and after, with twists that will raise the eyebrows of even the most stalwart of readers.
This sequel is not to be missed, and once again, I find myself impatiently its sequel, the final book in The Chronicles of Darkness series. Well done.

About the Book:

One woman, torn between warring halves of a shattered psyche. Two men, determined to possess her. An enmity so deep, it has the power to destroy. In a world of passion, heartbreak, and revenge, boundaries will be crossed, but one question remains. How far will each go for redemption? 

As prophesied heiress to the Cacciatori vampire dynasty, Kate Murdock is destined to free her kind from the curse of darkness. But Kate wants no part of her dark heritage. Her resistance to the darkness within divides her consciousness, the two halves of her mind battling for control. Kate wants nothing more than to redeem herself of past transgressions and to build a life with the man she loves. But the demon within her grows stronger everyday--- and she’s out for blood. 

Werewolf Dominic Ridolfi is an exiled traitor, disavowed for his love of the vampire heiress. Though hunted by vampires and werewolves alike, Dominic and Kate carve out a life together on the run. Dominic will stop at nothing to protect his mate from their world, but remains powerless to protect her from the darkness within. Will his love for the Cacciatori heiress be enough to redeem their souls? Or will darkness consume them both? 

Captain of the vampire royal guard, Alexander Ambrogio, had the world at his feet and the Cacciatori heiress on his arm. Until one misjudgment took it all away. Renounced for his failure to protect his charge, Alexander is offered a final chance for redemption--- return the missing heiress alive and all will be forgiven. His resolve to restore Kate to her rightful place is surpassed only by his hunger for vengeance against the werewolf who stole her. 

Redemption is coming… 

Discretion advised- for mature audiences only. *Note to readers: As the second book in a 3-part series, Dark Redemption is NOT the conclusion to the story and contains a suspenseful ending.
