“Kendra Leigh Castle knows how to please any PNR fan.” ~Under the Covers
I just don’t see Ms. Castle disappoint when it comes to this series. I have fallen in love with the Dark Dynasties right from the get go and I just don’t see myself falling out of it, ever. Ms. Castle
continues and never fails to deliver good action, political drama, intrigue, romance and a swoon worthy hero.
Tasmin has been lying asleep for a very long time. However, he is not a just any vampire; he is one with experience, background and power. And no technology or new world changes will bring him down. He quickly adapts and seeks the help of one human that can bring him closer to finding out what has happened to his kind. And if it means seeking help from a human female, then that is what he will do.
Bailey intrigued me the most. Honestly, I was not sure how Ms. Castle would incorporate her into this paranormal world, with her being human and all. But wow, well done. Not only was she not a wuss, she accepted her best friend as what she is. Let me tell you her best friend Lilly ruled, literally. She is a queen of her own dynasty and now, due to association, Bay is caught in a tangle of mess.
This particular installment had me engaged because of Tasmin. It is not because my top paranormal love is of the vamp kind but it was because of his very own personality. Okay, maybe because he is a sexy vamp/shifter. But bottom line is I was drawn to him. He exuded power, arrogance, sex, but yet so vulnerable. I love that he was able to protect and need it at the same time. He is a perfect alpha male.
Another thing that kept me glued to this book and I might have said this before, is the continuity of seeing the dynasties progress. One book does not end with just that story, it continues to the next. Also seeing the rest of the crew is always, always great!!! With Lilly being Bay’s best friend, you really get a treat of what is going on with her and her dynasty. And holy shit, she’s one kick ass ruler with one hell of a husband at her side. My only question is, when will Vlad get his own book. He is screaming for attention!
Kendra Leigh Castle knows how to please any PNR fan. I will always recommend Ms. Castle as a must read specifically this series. I just adore the Dark Dynasties.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
