BOOK REVIEW ― Dark Surrender (The Dark Ones Saga #3) by Rachel Van Dyken06:16
"I grew up as a prince...
And lead the life of a King.
There isn't anyone or anything that doesn't want me, that isn't attracted to me. They can't help it. And I sure as hell don't want them to. I live for their lust, I crave touch like an addiction, I make them beg on their knees for one, simple, caress.
As a male siren, it's my job to feed off emotion.
And I was happy to do it.
I am happy to do it.
What I'm not happy about? Being told I have to mate with some withering human and stay loyal to that one person for the next few centuries. There's a war coming and being the idiot I am--I offered to take one for the team in order to help a friend.
Now my sexual appetite is taking a freaking kick in the nuts.
And I'm left wondering if it's worth it.
If she's worth it, with messy hair and dirty human hands.
But I have a world to save.
A job to do.
Now, if only, she would just let me do it rather than fighting me at every turn. I've lived lifetimes as the most irresistible being on the planet.
Only to meet my match.
They say hells hot. They're wrong.
Because Hope, my little human, is way hotter.
And before this is over--she may just singe me alive."
Rating & Review
Can you seriously fall in love with a vampire, a Dark One (or two), werewolves and a siren all at the same time? I know it sounds like the start of a lame joke, but the Dark One's Saga is no laughing matter. Although there are some ridiculous lines that will have you trying to hide your snickers and laughs if you are reading at work.
In each book, an immortal is tasked with mating to help make the race stronger for the coming war. Not bad right...except the whole potential for death and being stuck with someone you will never love.
Decisions, decisions, decisions.
It seems Alex has decided to fall on his sword so poor Mason doesn't have to. But it might be the biggest mistake he has ever made because of life as he knows it will cease.
If you aren't a paranormal fan, I still think that you will enjoy the series. RVD has a way with writing that seems to have a demonic spell on it. Hmm, maybe it's her siren song! Alex must be a written representation of her cunning ability. Totally think that's true!!
Anyhow back to the awesomeness that is The Dark Ones, you don't have to be a paranormal fan, but if you are, watch out. The addictive nature and alluring words will wrap you up in a sweet caress and take your heart and soul with it!
