Saved By Darkness by Katie Reus (Review)

I enjoy the Darkness books. They all have been pretty good. I have a couple of favorites, one being Hunted By Darkness. This is where we meet Bo's brothers. Yes, has brothers, then again his father tried to sleep any creature he could get his hands on. Nice. Anyway, that reasoning is revealed in Saved By Darkness. Pretty cool, I know.

So, in the last book Into the Darkness, we had a sub-plot with Rory (Bo's half-brother) and Liberty. So, they found a love. Now in Saved By Darkness, we focus on Ian. We learn quite a bit the half-demon-dragon. One is he lost a love. 😢 He was planning to spend the rest of his life alone. Which is a freaking long time. Well, his first and only love came into his life again, Fiona O'Riley.

Fiona's family didn't approve Ian, because of his heritage. Horrible dragons by the way. So, they tried to keep him away from his love. In someways she stayed away to protect him. Anyway, they are thrown together in a huge mess and now Ian is trying to save Fiona, but time could be running out.

Saved By Darkness was emotionally brutal. I can't say too much why, because that would give the story away. However, they travel into the Hell Realms and everything turns out bad. I would use more vulgar phrases here, but I hope you get the point. Anywho, a ton things happen, and I still think Drake's mother is one of the most frightful characters in the series. Overall, still a good story. Yes, this can be read as a standalone. Yes, you will get glimpse of Fiona and Ian's past that leads to the present. Plus, other things happen. I'm looking forward to more Darkness books, because another character was added to the mix and now I want his story.
