Publisher's Summary

Golden Heart and RITA Award winner Christina Dodd is universally hailed for her engaging characters and sultry romances. In Touch of Darkness, shapeshifter Rurik Wilder is in a position to redeem himself after a lifetime of killing for profit. There is only one problem: the beguiling reporter Tasya Hunnicutt. She is hunting for the group of assassins who killed her family, and nothing will get in her way—not even love.

Keep Them Coming Please!!!

I love the Darkness Chosen Series by Christina Dodd! She has a wonderful way of telling a fantastic tale and weaving in romance and action. Her imagination and ability to share it with the reader is top notch! You can't help but to fall in love with the gorgeous Rurick Wilder. I can NOT wait for "Into The Shadow" and "Into The Flame", the remaining two books of the series to come to audible! This series is a must read for any paranormal fanatic! I know I am very glad that a friend recommended these books to me.

The Series is Getting Better

As I stated in my "Scent of Darkness" review, Jasha was great but Ann was a wimp, which distracted from the story. Definitely not the case with Rurik and Tasya. These were 2 strong, interesting characters on the search for the missing icon. Of course, they both had their own agendas, and most of the book was the like 'em/hate 'em kind of atmosphere but that's to be expected. Although neither of the books in the series (so far) was a "hang on to the edge of your seat" kind of books, they are still good enough to continue on in the series. You can't help but like the Wilder family and enjoy their story.

He's nae got the brogue

The story is strong, and Richard Ferrone was adequate for the first book of this series, but he has a deplorable Scottish accent. Every scene with a Highlander was distractingly cringeworthy. But the rest of the book is fine.

Delicious Darkness

This book has so much going on. It's deliciously sexy, edgy and intense. And with such fast-pace, stopping the book was impossible. Once you begin this series, you'll want to finish all of the four books back-to-back!

Not that good

This book was extremly predictable, there wasn't much to enjoy about it, i like the first one better. This author is really good, but i wouldn't use my credit on this book.

It was descent

I like this series...nothing to get really reved up about, but it's a nice distraction during a long drive. In this book we are looking at the second brother...and his attraction to a reporter. The narrator improved the voices, but not much. The premise was lacking on this one as he HAD been with this girl before, but now he falls head over heels...eh...the first book was better, I will get the third and hope for better. It's a nice world, a great distraction, and not a costly title. So, over all thumbs up, but wish it was more.
