Publisher's Summary

A chance encounter can change everything.

When Aly joined the Grayhart mission to find advanced civilizations within deep space, she didn't expect to be captured far from home and taken to Xolis, a galactic empire like none ever seen, ruled by the nillium, a powerful race with a serious god complex.

Now outsiders, Aly and her team of explorers are sent to the darkest place within Xolis: Lethe Maws. A mining city on a planet home to outcasts, slaves, and monstrous creatures lurking in the deep dark. It's home to the Dark One, a dangerous exile even the nillium fear, living at the bottom of the mines where all are warned never to go.

When Aly runs into the legendary alien in a very unlikely place, what she finds is no monster but a large, mysterious, nillium male with fierce silver eyes, who makes her heart race. But though the nillium outcast had reached for her, desiring to touch her, fascinated by her as she was of him, Aly soon learns he's not looking to be friends or possibly something more. What Aly doesn't know is that the Dark One - known by his kind as Ryziel, son of the nillium's now dead ruler - isn't looking for love or a mate. He's looking to get off Lethe Maws for good and return home to his brother, the only family who accepts him for who he is, the only one who matters. But the human woman brings out a darker part of him that he can't control; something he never thought possible. As he is determined to escape, he struggles to understand his need for her. A need to protect her. A need to claim her. He's determined not to let her get too close lest she be his undoing.

Try as he might to keep her at a distance, Aly will become the one thing Ryziel needs to be free.

Dark's Savior is a stand-alone novel in the Dark World Mates series.

strongly liked but not loved

the first 3/4 was great, then after that I felt that a lot of action was put into the last bit. overall I still enjoyed the book.

Engaging

Aly is a great blend of strong and soft. She doesn't whine and is kind, but she also isn't afraid to fight for herself. Her relationship with Ryziel is nicely complicated. The book keeps moving with plot twists and extra adventure. The narrator was excellent and the story well written. I would highly recommend.

Slow to ignite

I have to admit that I liked the first book better in the series but this one had its good points too. In both cases Ms. Riley slowly builds up to the climax of the story. This tends to make the story drag a little bit in part. But makes the listener want to see what happens. Generally, I like it when there is a male and female narrator but I was disappointed in Ms. Costa. Her performance was well enough, but her voice was hoarse or husky to such an extent that I would get distracted from the story. I found myself wanting to clear my throat as I listened to her. Unfortunately, this made me want to give an average rating overall because of the voice. Mr. Kafer was good and he was why I gave two stars instead of one for the performance. Having said all of that, I do plan on listening to the next book in the series if there should be one.

A nice read

If your looking for a book to pass the time this is the book for you. The voice actors where on point like always and the story itself was nice to listen to as a stand alone. Now if you read the first story in this series you might be a little put off by the story line. Truthfully I would of paid for the first story and made the second one free. I can see that the writer put a-lot of thought in to this story but I still feel that alot of important bits were skip over. For those seeking a bit of spice there were a FEW instances but mostly it was pretty vanilla. All in all I give this story 4/5 and I will be saving my credit until the third book is free.

Wow for twists and turns.

I am so impressed with this installment in the series!!! I have been pushing this book down my TBR list fearing that I would not be as good as the first when I have found that perhaps it is even better. They are very different stories and yet both remarkably well written and the romance is over the top. I was truly moved by the intimacy between the main characters and perhaps singed a little by the heat of the sex scenes. For those looking for lots of smut, you may be disappointed at the wait. However as a dedicated smut lover, I was so thoroughly engaged in the story that I did not even miss my chapters of smut. Hang in there for the outstanding crescendo at the end. It is so thoroughly satisfying that I had an actual smile on my face. I look forward to the next book as I cannot wait to see what is instore for him!!!!

good adventure... but...

could have been better. well written so that you can really visualize the world the characters are in and the characters themselves are interesting, there's some action and adventure thrown in. exploring the " ancients" underground city with it's creatures was creative. and I really enjoyed having both main characters POV in this book when book 1 was only the female lead... however there just wasn't enough satisfying interaction between the two leads for me, they started off good with their first meeting and his whole inner primal side ( what fan of SFR doesn't love a good inner best in the male leads) reacting to her and her touch setting up to be a really intense connection that just didn't get explored to it's full potential....which was very disappointing. they were apart more then together, hardly talked alone, and even when they finally had a moment with some real emotional potential it didn't get far and was over quickly. also the male leads harsh upbringing and severe lack of touch set up so well for some really deep moments between him and his lady but that was never taken advantage of either. this could have been really good, it had all the potential. if only the connection between the two main characters had been given some real attention. narration at least was decent.
even liking both Mason Lloyd and Felicity Monroe who apparently narrate the next book in the series I'm not sure I'm interested in listening if it's more events but no satisfying connection.

I really wanted to love it…

But I only like it. The characters are well developed and the universe is unique and interesting. For me There was excessive repetition in n the actions scenes. Same scenario kept happening and didn’t contribute to the story line. I still would recommend this title tho I enjoyed the first book Prisoners Heart better

Excellent world build but takes a bit to get into it.

The story is really good, but it can have long drawn out periods where it’s somewhat difficult to maintain interest. If you hold on though the story builds and becomes more complex generally to the last half.

Good Story

I liked this book a lot. The story was interesting. I didn’t like it at first because I was comparing it to the first in the series. I really liked the romance of Lana Xerus. I feel there relationship was mature and organic. Ally and Ryzeil was a bit strange for me. I’m not a fan of “I hate you but I’m attracted to you for no real reason” That trope always throws me off. Ally was a bit annoying. She was always “curious” in a way that bordered on childlike. I just could not buy into their love story. But that aside the story was really good once The women were shipped to Nill. It was interesting. I would definitely recommend this book. I still think the first one was better.

I didn’t like it very much

It was long and tedious. I usually love sci-fi. It is too o long and drawn out.
