A journalist in a cesspool of terror
and disorder, i.e. New Orleans, Mikaela Jones is a woman
with the desire to share the story of the city post the
storm that nearly destroyed it. She knows there are monsters
roaming the night, not all of them human and she’s intent on
finding all she can about what is happening during the wee
hours of the night when most people have locked themselves
away from the evil that roams the streets.
Only her nightmares prepared Miki for
the entrance of Alex Broussard, a Born male vampire in a
world ruled by a matriarchal regime. What most consider an
abomination, Alex is set to finally bring the council of
Born female vampires to their knees but his plans didn’t
include the female human whose innocence beckons him as
their shared desires threaten to burn them alive.
In true form, Darkness Burning
highlights yet again why Delilah Devlin is known for her
ardent vampire tales of lust, love and sinister delights.
Telling the story of Alex Broussard, a male Born vampire
cloaked for centuries from those who would see him
obliterated and his quest to put an end to those who
threaten him, his family and his unborn child. Miakaela
“Miki” Jones was an enigma with some clarity about her past
coming out towards the end even though I have some
underlying questions that needed answering.
I will admit to being a newcomer of the
Dark Realm series, which I admit affected my ability
to really enjoy the story to the fullest. There were a lot
of background issues, past relationships, connections and
just overall esthetics to this world of vampires, were and
demons I feel I may have lost not having read the previous
two books. Sometimes I felt puzzled while reading, as if I
really needed to know what lead up to the culmination where
Alex was finally ready to shut down the leader of the
vampire society that had ruined many lives in the past.
With that said, what I loved about this story, is the sexual
chemistry between Alex and Miki. These two had me drooling
and grinning each and every time they came together. Throw
in the other ardent trysts shared by the two and other
partners and you have a story that will definitely leave you
panting with excitement. Darkness Burning
provided lots of intrigue, suspense and edge of violence
that helped make it a good story to read. I just really
recommend you read the others books if you want to come away
with true satisfaction.
