From two different worlds....
Now that she's escaped her oppressive family, Nyx is enjoying her new life and friends - even if most of her friends don't know who or what she is. As a rare demigod, she's just learning how powerful she truly is, but family drama turns her world upside down, throwing the one man she cares about into danger.
He wasn't supposed to fall for her....
Nyx is nothing like the females half-demon Bo Broussard has been with. Sweet and innocent, she's not even remotely his type. But the moment she walks into his bar, he knows he's not letting her go. Unfortunately, someone from her past thinks they can force her into an arranged marriage.
He's not letting her go....
Someone is targeting one of them, and Bo doesn't know why. When they're thrown into a hell realm together, he and Nyx will need to band together if they want to survive the perils of that world. No matter who was behind the attack, his choice is clear. Defend Nyx at all cost and make her his forever.

I don't think I have heard this narrator before this series but he continues to impress me with the amazing performance narrating this amazing series.
In this installment, Nyx works at Bo's bar, while hiding from her family for reasons unbeknownst to her employer. Nyx is simply tired of being a pawn in her family's pursuit of power and so she wears glamour and works as a waitress while nursing an attraction to her boss.
Bo, half demon, half human bar owner, also nurses an attraction to Nyx but they both fight it for different reasons. When Nyx's family finally try to bring her home, Bo steps in to protect her which leads them to give in to their passion.
Bo and Nyx's story was a bit angsty, which I loved but it was truly entertaining. There was great chemistry, and a passionate love story. I was surprised to learn the full extent of Nyx's heritage. I was happy to know that Bo had half siblings. I love that the author keeps the prior couples integral to the story and everyone is connected is some way.
This series is the best dragon shifter series I've listened to and one of the best PNR series out there. I look forward to the next book.
Enjoyable. I love the building up of trust between Bo and Nyx. Though it would be better if there is less on the sexy part. All in all the plot was good and fast paced. Good series.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a very good story and addition to the series. I liked both Bo and Nyx very much and their story was very good.
Nyx is a half-fae/half-goddess that works for Bo at his supernatural bar. Her mother had her for the wrong reasons and never really loved her. Nyx's father wasn't much better and only saw her as someone he could marry off in an arranged marriage. Nyx has a lot of power but doesn't have great control over it.
Bo is a half-demon/half-human that owns a supernatural bar (in addition to other businesses). Bo was born when his mother was raped by his father. His father wasn't in his life but Bo had a good childhood with his mother who loved him very much. Bo has always had a hard time controlling his demon, usually using fighting or sex to keep it controlled.
Nyx starts working at Bo's bar and makes friends with Keelin (from book #3) as well as some of the other locals. Nyx and Bo become friends but they both have issues that keep them from taking things past the friendship level. Bo wants to though because ever since Nyx came into his life, he hasn't wanted any other women and his demon is calmed by Nyx. Nyx holds back from her attraction to Bo mostly because she's worried about him coming to the attention of either of her parents and them causing trouble for him. This seems like a good fear when her father decides to send people to try to get her to come home to take part in an arranged marriage he set up for her without her consent. Nyx has no intention of following her father's orders and has enough power to keep from being pushed into the marriage but she worries that the issues with her father could cause problems for Bo and her friends.
In the previous book, Nyx needed a favor from her mother and agreed to a favor in return. Nyx's mother asks for the return favor in this book, asking Nyx to deliver a box to a place by a certain time. Nyx and Bo worry that it's a trap so they try to be cautious and scope things out ahead of time...not that it helps much. Trouble ensues and they end up in a hell realm for a while. Thankfully, while the trip causes a strain between Nyx and Bo, it solidifies the need on both sides and Nyx and Bo are both determined to pursue the relationship after that. They have some interesting encounters on their trip and come out of it ok and with some new allies. There are still some issues to handle, mainly Nyx's parents, but Nyx and Bo manages to get through them and end the story starting their HEA together.
This was a very enjoyable story. I liked Nyx and thought she was a good heroine. I liked Bo as well and thought he made a good hero. TBH, the only complaint I had was that I felt like we could have used a bit more background on both MCs (it felt a bit lacking). Outside of that, I really liked the story and would recommend it. :)
The story and the narrator.He always does a great job!:)
He has a sexy voice that really fit the story.:)
If you have not listened to this series yet you are missing out.Katie is an awesome author and she never let me down!!
What I'm Reading
It's tied with Taste of Darkness.
Going through the Hell realm and meeting Bo's half-brothers.
Bo and Drake. I love the gruffness of his voice when he does these two.
When Rory went back to kill the demons for Liberty.
This is great book: this is the fourth book in the Darkness Series written by Katie Reus and narrated by Jeffrey Kafer. This book can be listened to in one sitting if you have the time, once I started listening to it I didn’t want to put it down until the end. Nyx is a rare demigod and is starting to lean how powerful she really is, she is enjoying her new life and friends until he finds out she has to repay a favor her mother gave and puts her and Bo in danger. Bo Broussard is half-demon and Nyx’s boss, when he finds out about the favor she has to repay they are thrown into a hell realm together. They must learn to work together to survive.
The narrator Jeffrey Kafer did a great job with this book. He did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
If you are looking for a great book with great characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
Nyx is tired of her family drama. It's why she left and is serving drinks at Bo's bar. It's a gathering place for the supernatural and is neutral territory. Nyx is enjoying her freedom. Bo is powerfully attracted to her and is determined to make her his female. Nyx feels the same chemistry, but she's isn't sure how to approach Bo. His protectiveness both irritates and intrigues her. Let the battle of wills begin. Suddenly become dangerous. They are thrown into another realm. They need to work together to survive. Can they do it? Nyx is a strong-willed, independent woman. She is ready to experience life and love to the fullest. And she wants it to be with Bo. I love seeing these two together. Bo struggles not to overwhelm Nyx with his desire. He is trying to exercise restraint when all he wants to do is boss her around, It was humorous watching him try to be laid back and understanding when Nyx wanted to fight her own battles. He wanted to jump in and be her champion. Their romance had to overcome a few hurdles. I was pulled into Hunted by Darkness. I loved all the action and the passion. This story is filled with unexpected twists. Katie Reus kept me riveted with her entertaining and solid characters. The narration by Jeffrey Kafer added to my enjoyment. I find that the audio version of the book intensifies the emotions of the characters. It doesn't get any better than listening to Hunted by Darkness.
Say something about yourself!
I love this series. I did miss hearing from my favorite shifter Gabriel though. I hope he's in the next book, I want to learn more about him. Either way I love all these characters and can't wait to hear their stories.
I am Tammy Payne. I am an avid book reader and I also have a book blog :)
Top 10. This is an explosively good book and being in audible makes it even better.
Nix. She is the daughter of chaos and if that doesn't explain it well she can break things instantly including people if they make her mad enough.
Jeffrey Kafer handles all the characters with ease but I will say my favorite was Bo.
When Bo meets his two half brothers, and when Nix accepts Bo for her forever.
I love this series and the Narrator does a fantastic job in bringing it to life
Summing up Hunted by Darkness in three words for me would be: Sexy Paranormal Shifters
There were a lot of moments within this series that I enjoyed. I enjoyed the part when Bo and Nyx spent their first night together. I enjoyed the part when Bo went searching for Nyx when she left to see her father and I enjoyed how protective Rory was of Liberty after everything that happened to her.
I have listened to every book in this series narrated by Jeffrey Kafer. The only thing I can say is that I enjoy this narrators voice a lot and it's the reason why I continue to want to listen to this series. It was a bit surprising because when I read the book I never pictured Rory or Ian having an accent and Jeffrey did an amazing job capturing the accept perfectly.
There wasn't a particular moment that moved me in the book but all of the characters in the story with their intended mate and the moments they shared was perfect, whether they were mated yet or not. It was good hearing the moments between Bo and Nyx, Victoria and Drake and Rory and Liberty.
I recommend listening to this series in order.
