Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Katie Reus comes the final story in the sensual, pulse-pounding Darkness series....

When a bringer of death....

Awakened after millennia, dragon warrior Reaper is ready to fulfill his destiny...until he sees Greer. With one glimpse, everything Reaper has ever known throughout his very long life is irrevocably changed. Greer’s his mate, he feels it in his blood, in his soul - but convincing her is another matter. The dragon clan healer finds him obnoxious and annoying, but he knows a woman’s interest when he smells it. And Greer smells like one word: mine. 

Meets a giver of life....

Greer has spent hundreds of years using her healing abilities for the good of others, making her the polar opposite of Reaper. The ferocious war general may be an ancient, but his arrogance proves he hasn’t spent any of that time learning about women. Greer is displeased when her Alpha sends her to New Orleans with the insufferable warrior - then she sees him in action against a menace threatening to tear the city apart. Fierce, protective, magnificent...mate-worthy. Maybe opposites do attract, but if they want to live long enough to find out, they’ll first have to save the world teetering on the brink of obliteration. 

Author note: This is the final book in the Darkness series and can be heard as a stand-alone.

So much going on!!!

Wow- just. Wow. As always, Jeffrey Kafer delivers a stellar performance that makes me wish I could afford to pay him to read me financial statements. Reus gives us a very serious story in this installment. I felt very drawn in and concerned nearly the entire time. I was worried. I was happy. I enjoyed the intrigue and mystery and battles. I, basically, went through an entire range of feeling and loved every second. Reaper and Greer are an amazing couple that I really fell for from go. He, being an ancient being, adapted quickly to how Greer should be treated but there was a big learning curve for him. Drama level- light Adventure- High Sexy times - low GFYDU MTYB DBAD

Enthralled

I dont think there is a book that Katie Reus has written that I didn't love. Darkness Rising is phenomenal, a absolute masterpiece. Consuming and unable to put this down I had no choice but to continue on with this book.

Darkness Rising Darkness #9 by Katie Reus

DARKNESS RISING (Darkness #9) By Katie Reus Darkness Rising is the 9th book in the Darkness Series and is the final one. As is true Katie Reus fashion, this is still as fresh, a compelling read as ever. This can be read as a stand alone book, but reading the prior ones will enrich the story in my opinion. This is the story of Reaper who is the Dragon of War and Greer who is a healer for the Petronilla clan. He is an ancient that has recently been awakened from his hibernation and Greer comes finds him. Reaper realizes immediately that Greer is his mate, but convincing her will take some effort. They need to get to the bottom of what is causing this. This story has action, great plot, chemistry and my favorite...we get some past characters from the series. Once again the awesome voiced Jeffrey Kafer does the narrating. I could listen to him narrate anything. Great job Katie! I give this book 5 stars.

I loved Reaper

Great audio version. I really loved Reaper and Greer . There's a little diff elements added that I don't like to read yet I suppose to be diverse author's are almost expected to follow the crowd. But if I concentrated on the love story and not those few things I was satisfied.

A+ Paranormal Romance

This was the first paranormal romance I had ever listened too and I loved it. All of Katie’s other series are excellent so I thought I’d give it a try and happy I did. I will definitely be getting the rest of the series. Jeffrey Kafer’s narration is exceptional. Love him as a narrator.

Reaper makes me happy

Loved it! Reaper just makes me happy. I found myself giggling at how literal he is and his misunderstanding of slang. I had to finish this in one day because I needed to find out what would happen next. I loved the twist of villains at the end. This book kept me guessing.

Amazing story and narration!!

I loved this book... I love the narrated version even more. Jeffrey Kafer is a fantastic storyteller who brings every character to life. He handles every single character in a way you think they are actually in a room with you. Greer and Reaper have an abundance of chemistry between them from the get-go. We get the things we always love from this author. Action, Suspense, and Love. In this one, we get laughter as well. The perfect couple to wrap up this series with. Of course, we find many of the characters from the series in this book as well.

Good Narration & Story

Greer was a dragon healer, and on call most of the time, needing time to herself to fly and be alone. Rumbling of the ground brought forth a dragon that had been in hibernation., he is sure if two things, another war, and that Greer is his mate. She is intrigued by this glittering dragon, but baggage first to release. Good plot, from beginning to end. The narration by Jeffrey.Kafer added greatly to the story. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
