Told in dual POV, The Dark Ones is an NA Paranormal Romance full of action and suspense. The writing style is free-flowing with magical characters living in a fantastical world. The passion between the main characters was tender and the emotional development that takes place between them is explored thoroughly as the plot unfolds. The supporting characters play a pivotal role in the series as they enhance the plot significantly with their magical powers and contribution to this world.
Overall, I highly recommend The Dark Ones to my Paranormal Romance reading friends. Rachel Van Dyken has an addictive writing style that flows naturally from one moment to the next. I am 100% invested in discovering each and every facet of this world! Cassius’ story Untouchable Darkness is next and he is already loaded on my Kindle!!!!
