Publisher's Summary

Two weeks after joining Keystone, Raven Black is ready to take on the world as a criminal hunter for hire. If only her partner wasn't a bloodsucking Vampire with a penchant for getting under her skin. Despite her lavish surroundings, Raven misses the freedom of life without rules. And Keystone's next assignment is about to test her self-control in more ways than one. Dead bodies are popping up in the human district, and all signs point to a Breed serial killer. In order to catch him, Raven and Christian embark on a mission that takes their partnership into uncharted waters. Lives are at stake. Can Raven trust her instincts, or will she fall into a web spun from lies and deceit?

Worthy of a credit for a Dannika Dark fan

Dannika Dark has two previous series, both of which are a part of the paranormal world she has built and are excellent. This is the second book of the Crossbreed series, which is a spinoff of her Mageri series. I enjoyed this particular book because of my familiarity and longtime loyalty to the three series.

However, I was disappointed because the mystery in the story was so obvious and easily solved, and it took her very bright characters far too long to come to the same conclusion. The development of the relationships in the book are also moving at an arctic pace. I'm hoping the next book picks up a little bit because the world and the characters are there and waiting to run in the authors next story.

The narrator is always outstanding !

5/5-great series--a MUST READ

Dannika Dark Bk 1-Keystone- was a great start to a new series--It totally set character, plot, time, and place. It was a start to the whole new world and how it worked.

Bk 2- Ravenheart---What a continuation. The same character but now you know them and see the comradely grow. I don't want to spoil this adventure/ murder/ paranormal diamond amongst the books you can buy. More action in this story--more understandings--more fun--and yes more questions to be answered. The perfect series that leads you into the next book.

I was impressed with the narration of Nicole Poole. Her ability at voices and accents enhance this complex story with many individual characters that intertwine to make Keystone work.

Comment to authror-Dannika Dark---I can't wait to see what comes of John in future novels.

An Average Sequel with Little Romance

If you're open to just getting to know the characters introduced in Book 1 of this series a little better via a murder mystery, this is probably worth your time. However, this book on it's own isn't super great. The story is incredibly predictable and not all that mysterious, and the lack of foresight and deductive reasoning within the cast of characters is pretty astounding. Raven did show some growth as a female protagonist from the first book in that she was a bit more mature albeit not very perceptive. This book is also considered a paranormal romance, and I would put a checkmark next to paranormal but definitely not romance. There are merely hints at a possible romance, and, ultimately, too much carrot-dangling without reward for the second time in a row.

I continue to find Nicole Poole's narration good enough but not outstanding. I'd give her three-and-a-half stars if that were an option.

I recommend this book to fans of the series or Dannika Dark, but that's it. There's better out there for people looking for a solid paranormal romance.

The wait for Book 3 will be torture!

Any additional comments?

I'm really loving this series, and its characters. Of course, I have loved Christian since being introduced to him in the Mageri series (in fact, he may have been my all-time favorite from that series), but I really like Raven, too. I am also growing fond of the other Keystone members, too, though some could certainly stand to be further developed, as they are just a few shades beyond being two-dimensional. Overall, though, they are a fun bunch, whom I can't wait to continue getting to know!

5 Ravenheart Stars!

I quiet enjoyed the first book, you get to know the world and how the story is going to work. So we have the bones of what this series is going to be.

So with the second book we are already familiar with the characters.
I am a Raven and Christian fan!! But I also love Gem and Nico, and, and, and lol ok I love em all.

This one was filled with so much mystery and action and who done it.
I quiet liked the sexual tension ridding a lot of the characters. But what I love the most was the comradery between all the teammates of Keystone.

Raven and Christian really start to get to know each other and their partnership really is starting to become just that a partnership.
I like the back and forth they have and the tension they have makes you want more, more, more.

I like that Raven is starting to feel welcome with Keystone so much so that she is making her space her own. And she is learning to trust the other members of her the team.

I again will shout it from the roof, I love Nicole Poole's narration is every book I have listened to. She makes you feel a part of the story. I loved this book with her narration because she does give each person their own voice. And I am sure that can't be easy with so many characters but she always manages to do it flawlessly.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

New favorite series.

I love these books. A perfect blend of humor, action, and romance. I don’t even care about the plot when I start listening. I just want to hear the characters bickering and teasing each other.

Nicole Poole is a wonderful reader, best I’ve heard in fact. Her accents are great. Every character, even the bit parts, have a different voice. It makes the story easy to follow and brings it to life.

Knox is back!

I was so happy when “John” made his entrance. I automatically connected him as Knox! I’m excited for his character to grow in this series.

I'm REALLY digging this series...

the first book was ok. the second book was better. the romance in the second book is subtle, the reference to the kiss, and the heart necklace he buys her. it's all very subtle. because she doesn't remember what happened in book one. so he's courting her in a round-a-bout way. it's fun to see it progress. the rest of the characters are evolving. I'm enjoying this series. and the narrator is excellent.

Awesome - loved reading every word!

The second instalment and even more enjoyable if at all possible. Can't wait to see how the next book teases us with Christian and Raven fumbling into caring and love?

Brilliant

I am hooked. This series just gets better which is exactly what I’ve come to expect from Dark’s work. Raven is a strong female lead who is not only capable of exploring her own emotions but is happy to share them with us. Christian is funny, charming, and annoying in equal quantities and I can’t wait to hear more from him. No spoilers, just wow. Best read via audiobook with Nicole Poole.

Fantastic second book

Just as good, if not better than the first. Fabulous author and the narrator was really enjoyable to listen to.
