Darkness Rises

Darkness Rises - Dianne Duvall This series has become one of my favorites. It is one of those PNR/UF mixes I do enjoy. In this one it is √Čtienne's turn at love and he finds it quite unexpectedly with a human female who has the unique ability to fight vampires and still live. She is a strong willed woman who is full of vengeance. Her brother is also unique but does not possess the ability to help her with vampire hunting. Still, he puts his life on the line every night with Krysta. √Čtienne and Krysta come together while fighting vampires and stumble upon an even greater threat. One that they thought they had recently eradicated.

If you have followed by reviews and posts of this series then you know I've been a fan since the first book. Oh and I think they keep getting better and better. Within this book you not only get the main story of √Čtienne and Krysta, but you also get hints of another pairing. You also get more of the arc of Ami's story. Plus, another arc of a mysterious group out to bring the immortals down. Although this seems like a lot, the author skillfully ties them all together as well as gives you different POVs that do not confuse, but really gather information. So in the end, despite it being 400+ pages you are left wanting the next book without any cliffies. Yes, the arcs are unfinished, but there is no cliffie in the main story. *sigh of relief*

What I also love about this series besides all the great characters is the humor. There were several times I snorted and disturbed others around me. I loved it. All the books have a dose of humor and I'm so glad this one went right along with it. Oh I am giving this one 5 stars. I was so ready for a book like this at this time. If you enjoy PNR with a good dose of UF, then do try this series. It's so much fun.
