Review for Darkeness Awakened by Stephanie Rowe

Title: Darkness Awakened (Primal Heat Trilogy) (Order of the Blade)
Author" Stephanie Rowe

Description: The Calydons are a race of ancient immortals cursed with
a dark side. Each Calydon is destined to meet his soul mate, to be so
drawn to her that he is unable to resist bonding with her through the
rituals of his race...

...but their destiny is to destroy each other and all they care about the moment their bond is complete.

Quinn Masters will stop at nothing to rescue his rogue teammate. To save his blood brother and ensure his brand of justice triumphs, Quinn will break every rule of his kind and partner with the sensuous,courageous woman destined to be his ultimate destruction.

Haunted by a brutal past, Illusionist Grace Matthews will risk
everything to save her kidnapped sister, including putting her life in the sinfully capable hands of an immortal warrior whose ravaging kisses and intense passion propel her ruthlessly toward a fateful destiny she can't afford to believe in.

My Thoughts: Wow! Thank you Stephanie Rowe for letting me review "Darkness Awakened", the first book in this amazing new paranormal series. You created a wonderfully new and enthralling world of calydons. I must admit, I'm a bit in love with them all after seeing the group of warriors in the first book, but let's get to the characters of the first book .

Oh Quinn, complete warrior and protector, got dealt a blow when his trainees were taken out. He had only started to recover when he found one of his weapons missing as well as the thought that one of his good friends and fellow warriors may have been the cause of everything. He is determined to get to the bottom of the matter, one way or another, and find the truth.

What he doesn't expect is Grace, who just happens to be his Sheva. Her sister has gone missing and she has searched him out to help find her. Once he caught her scent, she drew him back. Grace is my kind of girl. She is loyal, has some spunk, and is all heart. Even though she is vulnerable and scared of what she may do if a illusion triggers, her sister is more important. Plus she has more backbone than she gives
herself credit.

Quinn and Grace have an instant attraction, which had me swooning. Besides that, you have to love a story where they are determined destiny will not win and the struggle they go through to ensure it. I absolutely loved Quinn and Grace. He is a fierce warrior, but when it comes to his Sheva, the shameless, playful flirt comes out. They set the pages on fire with their passion for each other. I love a tender, possessive male, when it's directed at his Sheva, then pure warrior when it's down to the mission. When it comes to Quinn, Grace is able to feel like she isn't alone and finally accepted. I can't wait to see what Rowe has in store for us in the calydon
world, but I'm already begging for more. The next book in the series is "Darkness Seduced". I, for one, am ready to be seduced. Are you?
