Publisher's Summary

Melena Sanders faced her fair share of danger with insurgents and terrorists when she served in the U.S. Army, but now she is about to go up against a new threat. Her best friend, Aniya, has disappeared while on a trip to Fairbanks, Alaska - a supernatural haven. Most humans have no idea darker races lurk amongst them. Mel knows better. If she wants to get her friend back, she's going to have to go in alone - but not unarmed. Melena has a few special skills the Army didn't provide, but the odds are still against her. And danger likes to play it rough. A war for power is about to rise in Fairbanks, and if she wants to get Aniya back, Mel is going to have to step right into the middle of it.
Contains mature themes.

Very interesting first book in a new series!

I took quite a while before deciding to give this new series a chance. There' are no regrets whatsoever. I thoroughly enjoyed this first book in the series. Melena Sanders is a very courageous heroine. She is loyal and got herself into a lot of trouble by going to Alaska to search for her missing best friend. She used her special gift to find her friend who had been captured by the vampires and other supernaturals. I find the narrator, Chris Dukehart did a good job. Her voices for the different characters were easily distinguished. The plot was good.

Girly book with just the right amount of angst

Liked this a lot. A little harlequin romance with supernatural flair. Fun read for a lazy afternoon. I would recommend

New series to me - good start

Would you listen to Darkness Haunts again? Why?

I always listen twice as no the seconded listen I seem to take in much more detail

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved the dark angel - obviously love there but will wait and see.

Which character – as performed by Cris Dukehart – was your favourite?

The wolf - could understand his angst but not his loyalty to the villain

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The meeting with the young girl when she could see her own past

Any additional comments?

It was a good story and a good listen but I didn't understand why she trusted so quickly and I had difficulty with her decision at the end - why did she not see it as captivity. May listen to the next one especially if it goes on special.

I was really looking forward to this book as it sounded promising, sadly it was a big disappointment. The main female character just doesn't make sense to me. She's supposedly she's ex-army - and would therefore have at least basic combat training - yet she is absolutely useless in fight and usually ends up easy defeated and often badly hurt. I also can't say I liked any of the male characters. They are all complete gits that are more than happy to sit back and watch bad things happen to the female lead and those she cares about even though they could help her. The narrator does an okay job, although her male voices are a little feminine.
