Publisher's Summary

The fifth book in the USA Today best-selling Darkness Series.

With Sasha as the proclaimed Mage of high ranking power, she can't just slip under the carpet to a peaceful existence. Instead, she must present herself to the Council, a group of white mages who reside over the magical community, governing Stefan's people. There she must prove she has what it takes to be the mage of Stefan's clan, not something easily done. Stefan, too, has been noticed by the large faction of rulers. An alpha leader with a firm hold over his people, he has outgrown in his position, and it shows. Ties to a human mage with a vast well of power, though, has made him a target. Sasha is sought after, and those who want to harness her power will take her by force if necessary.

With Dominicous' and Toa's help, Sasha and Stefan must face the trials coming up. Proving themselves is the easy part. Getting out with their lives becomes the challenge.

This series is just plain AWESOME!!!

Oh my goodness! I absolutely loved this book! I could not stop listening! It starts off quick and just keeps on going! There was the typical K.F. Breene humor and snark but there was also lots of passion, epic battles and new characters to love! Sasha seriously comes into her own in this latest installment of the Darkness Series! She totally rocks it!!! I must admit I got a bit teary-eyed at the end and then I was hit by the most amazing news...

wait for it...

wait for it...

am I allowed to say this?!

Hmm, better not. Guess you'll have to listen to it to find out!!!

story is great, but......

I love K.F. Breen, love all her recent books and I do love the darkness books. I was reluctant to listen, because , honestly, I hate to spend a $12 credit on a 4 hour book, then 1-4 became a box set , I love the story, though, just a tad too many drop dead gorgeous people , though I can deal with that, it`s fiction . Victoria Mei is doing a good job, and here is what I personally find annoying, is the many sex scenes, yes, I do skip through them now , but what a waste of story . I love some romance, but if they have sex 5 times in the exact same way , same description , same details .....too much for my personal preference.
I will wait to see if there will be another box set . For me, to spend a credit, I`d prefer at least 8 hrs . Still love the story and hope to "read" the rest soon

Decent

A time filler. I liked how they started to include more races of species. One person is changing their minds on appropriate lifestyles and bridging old biases.

Entertaining

I absolutely love this series! Danger, fighting, betrayl, suspense, love, friendship, and toe curling sex await the listener. A good dose of sarcastic humor is always available as well. The narrator did a fantastic job!
