The New York Times best-selling author of the Darkness series is returning to the sensual, action-packed world with Ian's much-anticipated story!
He thought he lost her decades ago.
Half-demon, half-dragon shifter Ian McCabe is hell-bent on getting back the only woman he's ever loved. When Fiona O'Riley kicked him out of her life decades ago, he thought she was gone for good. Now that she's back, nothing will stop him from claiming her. But she wants nothing to do with him - or his family.
She'll do anything to save him.
Fiona knows that Ian is the only male for her. The only way to keep him alive is to stay away from him. But when tragedy strikes and they discover a wicked agenda for the mass murder of humans, they must work together to take down the enemies that threaten everyone. But there's so much more on the line. As their undeniable desire intensifies, they're faced with an unbearable choice.

She was his life, his everything.

What did you love best about Saved by Darkness?

I loved everything about Saved by Darkness. IF I had to hone in on anything, it would be the characters. They were beyond fabulous!

Saved by Darkness is the second-chance-at-love story of half-dragon/half-demon Ian McCabe and dragon Fiona O’Riley and is told from several third person perspectives in the present day and with flashbacks from the past. Ian is the only male Fiona has ever loved and that she still loves. But, her family has forbidden her to have anything to do with him. She has and will do anything to keep him safe.

Ian is alpha through to his core. He’s powerful and a scary fighter – not a creature to cross. Even so, he shows heart-rending tenderness with Fiona and, even though it’s not in Ian’s nature to follow, he is remarkably controlled and exhibits amazing finesse in his dealings with Finn and the Stavros Pack.

Fiona is also an impressive creature – but she has a sweetness in her make-up. She sacrificed everything for Ian’s safety and has since worked tirelessly at running a shelter for abused and battered supernatural females. The shelter sits on the periphery of the Stavros Estate, run by the shifter alpha Finn Stavros.

Previous favorite characters in the series play strong supporting roles in this tale. Fans will enjoy catching up with them. There is also a secondary story line between the Stavros pack healer Ophelia and Gray, a sculpting wolf-shifter.

What other book might you compare Saved by Darkness to and why?

The previous books in Katie's Darkness series are more of the same greatness. They all feature thrilling romantic tales encompassing an incredible mix of paranormals including dragons, wolf-shifters, demons, demi-gods and vampires. Even though this is the sixth installment in Katie’s Darkness series and there are interconnected characters shared with the previous books, Saved by Darkness can easily be enjoyed without hearing or reading the previous books in the series. That actually holds true for any of the books in this series. That said, I would recommend reading this series in order, if possible. Doing so will give readers a better understanding of the primary and supporting characters and the whys and wherefores of their interactions.

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I've listened to Jeffrey Kafer before.He has very capably narrated the entire series-to-date. His delivery is vivid and polished as he brings each character to life with voices and inflections that sound genuinely realistic. His narration is extremely clear and easy to understand and follow. He differentiates between the characters to where I experienced no issue whatsoever knowing who is speaking at any time. Without a doubt, his performance enhanced my enjoyment of the book. I highly recommend the audios in this series to both audiophiles and audio- newbies.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

“Would you want to live without me?”
Tears flowing freely, she shook her head.
“Then don’t expect me to live without you."

Any additional comments?

Saved by Darkness is a great book as is the norm from Katie Reus. She seamlessly blends paranormal romance, suspense and danger incorporating a myriad of surprising twists and turns into addictive perfection! Believe me, there is not one boring second in the entire book as I was captivated straight through to the emotional roller coaster ending. The next book in the Katie’s phenomenal Darkness world will be Gabriel’s, the Stavros Pack’s Guardian's story. I honestly can’t wait!
