The Darkening by Caris Roane Book Tour, Review, and Giveaway





BLURB:
A tortured warrior and a peace-loving counselor battle to protect Second Earth against a powerful dark force…

He thwarted connection of any kind…

Fearing that his newly emerged grayle power will kill innocent ascenders, Samuel Daman struggles to keep his distance from beautiful Vela Stillwell.  But the breh-hedden has struck and her light floral scent tears at his restraint.  When the enemy draws them both into the darkening, a place of secret travel for Third ascenders, will Samuel learn to control his power, or will he destroy what he desires most?
She hid from grief…

Vela Stillwell wanted a new life, away from Militia Headquarters, away from the reminder of all she’d lost when her husband died five years earlier.  Seeking a more reclusive occupation, she finishes her last day of work only to have Samuel Daman and the infamous breh-hedden sweep through her life.  Though trying to disconnect from her new emerging power and from Samuel, the call of the darkening pulls Vela into an adventure that both terrifies her, yet reveals the truth about her deepest desires.  Will she succumb to the breh-hedden, or will her fears prevent her from living life to the fullest?


Review:

5 stars

Widower Vela Stillwell is anxious to start her new position away from Militia Headquarters, having lost her husband in battle, she wants to be far removed from getting close to another warrior again.   When she attends a demonstration and sees Warrior Samuel Daman, everything changes even if she plans to fight it along the way.  The breh-hedden is in full force between Samuel and  Vela, but what is even more strange is together they both find their emerging powers are becoming more powerful.  When Samuel's best friend goes missing, Vela is by his side in trying to find him before it is to late and trying to make a decision about their future without the pull of the breh-hedden is becoming increasingly difficult.

I have been a huge fan of Caris Roane since reading Ascension, her brilliant ability to write a story where you can visualize every second of each characters action is phenomenal.  Typically her books are outside of my reading comfort zone because of the kind of fantasy portion, but it does not matter she has a way of creating a setting you can easily visualize.  I can always be guaranteed a thrilling experience while reading one of her books.  She just keeps getting better and better.

BIO:
I was ten when I first watched an old movie version of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and loved it!  Movies led to books, which led to writing and after a good long while, publishing.  I wrote sweet Regency romance for Kensington for 19 years and recently fell in love with paranormal, although I’ve always had a thing for vampires.  I currently write paranormal romance for St. Martin’s Press but I self-publish as well.  Building an online platform has been an enormous but rewarding challenge.  I think all the changes in publishing will alter how authors approach the business going forward and I for one am thrilled to have so many options.
