  • Book Description:

    “Welcome to the castle. The price of admission is your soul.

    Ex-detective Macmillan has a taste for bad girls, but his last lover really took the cake–and his humanity. Now a half-demon, Mac’s lost his friends, his family, and his job.

    Then a beguiling vampire asks for his help to find her son. Suddenly, Mac has a case to work–one that leads him deep into the supernatural prison where Mac learns that cracking the case will cost him his last scrap of humanity.

    Fiery, vulnerable Constance will do anything for those she loves, including Mac. He’ll be damned if he turns his back on her… and a demon forever if he doesn’t.”

    My Thoughts:

    The second book in Sharon Ashwood’s The Dark Forgotten series grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let go. Mac and Constance heat up the pages, kick some serious butt and defy a lot of odds. Both main charcters have a lot to deal with internally, in coming to grips with their paranormal natures, as well as externally, in dealing with the people who matter to them and the situations they are in. We also get to “see” a bit more of Holly and Alessandro, the main characters from the first book, Ravenous. I really liked that they were worked into this story because I always wonder what “happens” to characters after their book is done. 🙂 

    Gripping, suspenseful, funny at times, and filled with a myriad of amazing charcters and plot, the story weaving is excellent! The castle and every other location that Sharon Ashwood writes about just oozes atmosphere and you feel like you’re there with the characters.  I can’t wait for the next book in the series, Unchained to hit stores in July 2010. Any fans of both Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance will find this to be an awesome book and series to follow.

      • I know how frustrating that can be. I sometimes have to wait a week or so after a release date before I see it on shelves here in Canada, and that tries my patience, lol. :)It’s well worth the read if you can get your hands on it! Have you read the first book?
