Selene is the only female member of the Shadow Guard and daughter of Cleopatra, she has been under spelling spell under the tower of London because she sacrificed herself to save the people of London. Rourke the ravenmaster persuades the Queen to free Selene and is assigned to be a personal guard. She is under surveillance because she is accused of murdering not only a prostitute but also one of Rourke’s men. Rourke has been interested in her for a long time, will he be able to proof her innocence
I have to confess that Selene wasn’t one of my favorite characters in the previous books of this series, but this book definitely changed my opinion of her, because it shows a completely different side of her. She is truly a quite unique heroine.
Rourke was an really interesting character, too, and it was fun to see how the relationship between them developed.
Kim Lenox has a talent to combine suspenseful/gothic and romantic elements with each other. I really liked the historical setting of the novel very much, because it was the perfect time period for this story.
This is the last book of the Shadow Guard series and I highly recommend that you read the first two books, Night falls darkly and So still the night, prior reading this one. The book and the whole series is a keeper, you don’t want to miss out on.
DARKER THAN NIGHT is a book that neither paranormal nor gothic fan want to miss, because it is a real pageturner.
THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THIS BOOK. THIS IS AN OBJECTIVE UNBIASED REVIEW
