I loved how the love between Eva and Seph was so strong that they were willing to do what they felt necessary to save the other. This is a story within the Eternally Mated world, and as new complications arise and events unfold, I could not stop reading. This is an extensive world blending good and evil, and is a pleasurable read.
I received a copy of this story through Booksprout, and this is my unsolicited review.
Review originally featured at Angel's Guilty Pleasures
Sometimes even a reaper fears the darkness.
Created from light and dark, Sephtis is bound to both Heaven and Hell. When he calls upon his reaper, he unleashes a power even demons grow to fear. Only Evangeline keeps him from crossing over to total darkness. His mate is the light that burns bright in his soul.
Being a guardian angel is all Evangeline ever wanted. Then a promise to a dying woman changes her life irrevocably. Finding herself trapped in a foreign land, she must fight for her life while searching for a way back to the man she loves.
When a stranger comes between the couple, the two angels become entangled in a web of evil that will put their love to the ultimate test. Hell hath no fury like a reaper determined to find the woman he loves.
This novela was quick, but boy did it pack a punch.
I read book 1, Fall Into Darkness & 2, Veiled in Darkness, but I did skipped 3, Bound by Darkness. You can read Unleash The Darkness as a standalone though previous characters do show up to help Eva and Seth in their adventure. The battle with Lucifer continues, secrets get thicker, and mysteries come to life.
Seth and Eva where a wonderful couple. I loved them together and I liked how strong they are apart as well. Eva is strong, brave, and has a heart of gold. I really enjoyed her kind heart. Seth, Hell hath no fury like a reaper. All those tattoos, sexy. Just look at the cover. I also loved meeting other reaper’s as Seth moves around the different realms hunting for his stollen mate. I’m hoping we get more reaper’s in this series. The reaper’s we meet have peaked my interest in them and I want to know more about them.
Unleash The Darkness was a pleasing read.
Rated: 4 Stars

I have never ever felt such a strong negative emotion towards any character as I did for Jason/Shane in this book. I literally wanted to reach through the pages and put my hands on his throat and just squeeze. This character was the most despicable character ever. I think what grated me the most was how the author gave the reader his feelings, beliefs and reasons that he felt he could do these things to people. Not only was he horrendous to women, he was plain out horrible and rude to everyone who came in contact with him. Except, of course, those, and at times, he needed something done for him. Then he could be the most charming person ever.
This, of course, made for a pretty good book that I was seriously interested in. However, I did feel that there was a lot of the book that was included purely to add length to the book. Those parts did drag along and I ended up skipping several pages.
Overall, I think the book was a good read, just lengthy in some areas and repetitive. The cellular memory part was something that I was not aware of and was an interesting concept in the book. And, I still want to put my hands around that man's neck. HA!!

I'm planning to read another Christopher Pike book, and I picked this one. I remember absolutely nothing about it, although I'm fairly sure I've read it before. The copy I read and/or owned as a teen had this cover:
"The trial is for murder. Ann Rice is dead. Her best friend, Sharon McKay, stands accused. But there is no body. And the three witnesses to the crime only heard what happened, and did not see it. Nevertheless, the prosecution is almost certain of victory. Ann was alone with Sharon on top of the cliff when Ann fell the 500 feet into the torrential river that claimed her life. There was only one route leading to the cliff, and all the witnesses can remember hearing the girls arguing before the fall occurred. Sharon's only defense is that Ann committed suicide. But everyone who knew Ann, including Sharon, said she was not the suicidal type.
And they were right.
Ann was much more than suicidal.
She was obsessed."
So nobody thinks the fall could have just been an accident?
And also, the murder victim (who I'm guessing isn't actually dead) is Ann Rice? LOL.
