Thief. Murderess. Sacrificial messenger. Netriet has faced death many times, but she never consented to the transformation she endured the last time her life was pulled back from the edge of death. She's compelled to live a solitary life for fear the shadow inside her will terrify others. Lonely, Netriet longs for acceptance and friendship. Joining up with the Fair, a haven for misfits, she believes she's found home and love with Merick. The ghosts of Merick's past haunt him. Helplessly attracted to Netriet, he's sworn to help her destroy the shadow within, but losing his heart to her cripples him with fear. Mistakes and misunderstanding push her away, and Merick's forced to watch her flee into the arms of another man.
Torn between two men, Netriet's true nature is drawn to one, while the shadow yearns for the other. At war with the darkness, Netriet must choose, or let the shadow swallow her completely. The fate of Regia's new republic hangs in the balance as a new enemy arises, backed by a group of violent insurgents bent on destroying everything Forest has worked for. Desperate for intelligence about the terrorist group, Forest learns the leader wants not only to claim the throne, but also her life.

The best narration of the series yet! The story is amazing in print, and read well here too. The flow of this particular story itself allows it to translate well to reading, whereas, if we're honest, some books can't. I recommend!
Dark Soul did go dark, but not where I thought it would. I was hoping for a more streamline interactions with Forest. I wanted to see Forrest struggle a little more with the moral components of her new job. With that said, the story that was crafted nicely. Especially the Bale/Netrit relationship. That was a surprising way to include Bale, who was horrible and I am glad he got his due in the end. I disliked that man very much, but strong feelings towards a character means a good story. The people of the fair and Cyrus’s appearances made my heart warm and that cliffhanger……… OMG Tenaya Jayne… you are driving me crazy, but I guess it is alright and a smart thing to do. Over all I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading the nice one.
this book tells netrices story and start on the obvious set up for the next book however i feel that the stuff that happens with forest went no where
Dark Soul moves into a world dark and gritty -- one that at times scared me and others made my skin crawl -- I loved it!Netriet and Merrick are far from typical, yet their love and redemption is even better because of the pain in their lives before.As always, Jayne left me wanting more. I can't wait for the next book to hit the shelves
Maybe some of the darkest fantasy, like Game of Thrones, in the matter-of-fact brutality of this character's life.Only Stephen King and Peter Straub ever disturbed me like Jayne has. I want to know what happens, but the pain of witnessing it through the character's eyes is so very real.
