“And if I am a monster? Will you want me then?”
Ten days after the battle at Blackriver, Michael struggles with new forbidden desires, with his rampant Flame, and a deepening relationship with the taciturn werewolf, Commander Gabriel Flanagan.
Feeling responsible for their loss, Michael longs to rescue the students stolen by the manipulative vampire prince, Alexei Vasiliev. But the High Council refuses to free Michael from his chains. They fear the Whisperer — the half-breed who decimated an entire company of soldiers and came back from the dead. Yet, Michael still yearns for a future among the Guardians. For a place beside his Finnish, silver-eyed giant. For a home within the crazy supernatural world he’s now bound to.
But does Michael still have a future? He’s a descendent of the Warlock — from a bloodline that produces only monsters. If discovered, not even his protective lover can save him from certain execution. He may not want to.
Dark Fate is the second book in the Flame Born series. This MM urban fantasy/paranormal romance is action packed, featuring steaming hot scenes, a hunk of an alpha love interest, a chocolate-scented snarky vampire prince, a clever best friend who can kill a man with her little finger, and one too many shady characters to count. There is content through the series some readers may find distressing. Meant for mature audiences only. See inside for trigger warnings.
Helen’s thoughts: 5/5
Another emotional and steamy book by Kat Silver, the second installment of the Flameborn series, and it doesn’t disappoint.
Michael and Gabriel are two such strong characters, conflicted and yet meant for each other. Everyone wants something from Michael, it’s difficult to know who he can trust. With such terrible powers crackling under Michael’s skin you find it as frustrating as he does that no one will explain to him who is and what he is meant to do.
Prince Alexi is turning out to be more than you expect, he is growing on me, he is obviously just as persuasive through the pages of a book as he is in real life (lol!), and I am worried Michael is going to lose himself. Hopefully he retains his snarky attitude, though not enough to get himself bound!
A great second book, enough steam to keep it interesting, plenty of action and so beautifully written that you are hooked as soon as you pick up the book. Can’t wait for book three!
About the author:
I’m a simple northern English lass with an addiction to writing, as well as all things romance. Also addicted to cats, cat videos, and anything with, you know, cats in it. And there’s chocolate, and tea, coffee too, and rainy Sundays. Okay, I have many addictions. But my first love has always been story in all its forms, from movies to books to anecdotes told over a beer at the local pub. If we’re sharing a story, I’m all ears. And if it’s fantasy with hot heroes and vampires and lots of angsty luuurve, I’m probably drooling. Come in, pour yourself a tea, and kick your shoes off. Let me tell you a story.
