Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA TODAY best-selling author Katie Reus continues her paranormal romance Darkness series with Taste of Darkness.
He spent more than a thousand years imprisoned in Hell....
Drake is an ancient dragon shifter, one of the most powerful beings in existence, but over a millennium trapped in utter darkness has left him ill-equipped for modern society. If it wasn't for Victoria, the sweet female brave enough to befriend him, he'd be lost. She's smart and gorgeous and everything he never dared dream of during his years of agonizing loneliness. He may not have anything to offer her, but one thing he knows for sure: he'd die to keep her safe.
Only to fall into the heaven of her touch.
Victoria is a wolf shifter, healer of the Stavros pack. She's seen a lot, but she's never met anybody quite like Drake, the fiery, fascinating shifter who can blaze through the skies unseen by mere mortals. He's lost, dangerous, and the last male she should fall in love with, but the more time she spends helping him navigate modern life, the deeper - and hotter - their connection becomes. She's thrilled when they finally locate his family, but reuniting with his people plunges them both into unimaginable danger. It's a race against the clock trying to figure out who wants them dead and who they can trust, especially when the threat is closer than they ever imagined.

Dragons, Wolves and More!

Another awesome story and performance, loved every minute of it!

Katie Reus's Darkness series is definitely a worthy series to listen too and reminds of Coreene Callahan's Dragonfury series. If you like dragons and wolf shifter stories, this is a series you'll want to add to your collection. These stories are slightly shorter than the average book; however, they are well written and both the characters and plot are well developed. There's plenty of action, suspense with lots of twists, and the romance is a steady burn that builds into an inferno.

Taste of Darkness picks up where book one ends, and now Drake is trying to adapt to the world he has not seen in over a 1000 years. When he was a young boy, he was scarified and cast into hell; however, four months earlier, he was freed when a hell gate was opened. During his escape, he meets his future mate Victoria and her pack and assists them in closing the hell gate to prevent demons from escaping into the world.

Even though Drake is now free, he has not claimed his mate. Victoria has been helping him learn his new world and is ready to take the next step in their relationship; however, before he will claim her, he feels he must first be worthy and able to provide and protect her. There's a lot of chemistry and build up between them.

Unfortunately, Drake doesn't remember anything from his past or how he ended up in hell. But when his brother and sister come to visit him, and he is reunited with his family, his memories start to slowly surface, and he soon realizes someone close to him betrayed him. After his family and mate are attacked, suspicions are cast on the wrong person.

This was a great story and well worth the time invested in listening to it! I'm looking forward to listening to the other stories.
