**Review written for an originally posted on my blog, Book Bliss.I received a copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased and honest review**

Review: 5 stars

General: Darkness Awakened is full of heat, chemistry and action from cover to cover complete with an awesome set of characters. I always love when opposing supernaturals are put together, it adds an extra layer of drama and things to go wrong and it certainly didn’t make things any easier for this two.

The storyline was incredibly strong and the world building filled with perfect detail. Everything that happened was filled with plausible emotions and page turning reactions from me. I love that in a book and the romance was steamy. Using two characters that have a troubled past combined with the worries of Vega was a perfect way to develop dependent characters that you root for.

Characters: Lyra Marius- Lyra is a vampire queen in her own rights, even if not yet. She is undeniably powerful in her poise and determination. I loved her inner conflicts as she had to put it aside and ask for help. Her reactions and actions to everything in the story were wonderfully believable.

Finn Stavros- Finn made Lyra look a little weak he was so alpha male! He was dark and brooding and commanding in ways that all male heros in novels like this should be. He was incredibly prideful and stubborn as well and it made watching the two come together more explosive. ( )

The first book in the Darkness series is an intriguing and action filled paranormal must read.

Finn is the Alpha of the fiercest werewolf packs in the south and he’s in full battle mode fighting the Akkadian demons that has mysteriously escaped from Hell. Desperate for his help, Lyra is a royal vampire and Finn’s former love and she’s about to turn his world upside down with her secret.

This fast paced plot grabs the reader’s attention from the very beginning and keeps them on their edge of their seat with vivid imagery and intense details. The enchanting characters have strong personalities that the reader’s can relate to and leaves them wanting to know more.

The chemistry between the Finn and Lyra is combustible with the sex scenes radiating enough heat to singe the reader. The couple has a lot against them and the author conveys all the emotional turmoil with an intensity that has the reader feeling for the couple and their situation.

The author has done a great job with fantastic supernatural story with werewolves, vampire, demons and dragons. I was caught in the story from beginning to end with lots of suspense and enjoyable characters. I can’t wait to read the next one and see what adventure the author has in store for me. ( )

What a great start to a new series by an author that is fast becoming one of my favorites. This book has vampires, wolf shifters, demons and even a dragon. I can't wait to read more about this group of supernaturals. Finn was a pretty kick-ass alpha and Lyra wasn't too bad either. Even though this plot wasn't exactly new it was still a great story with plenty of action and even more intense feelings between two people that totally belong together but due to certain supernatural biases have stayed apart for way to long. Looking forward to more in this series.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. ( )

You can never go wrong with a book by Katie!! I love her writing style and the amazing characters she comes up with. I was unable to put this book down for a minute!!! I hope to read more about these characters in these future. Especially about a certain man named Drake with possibly/hopefully Victoria. Definite must read!!! I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
