Katherine has been hidden away for her
entire life. With a port-wine stain on her face, it is
considered to be a mark of the devil in this superstitious
time. While she was hidden away she always had her family
to visit and their secret passages in the castle to help her
get around. Now things have changed.
Calen the Black has returned from the
Crusades and while he was a favorite of the King’s he might
have been a little too much of a favorite of the ladies of
the court. So the king has awarded him the lands of the
Wolf clan, who were wiped out by a plague.
While the castle is rumored to be
haunted, Calen is determined to make it his new home.
Katherine is heartbroken to see all her family heritage
destroyed but is more intrigued by Calen than anything
else. She sneaks into his chambers during the night to see
where her feelings will lead her. But, will she ever be
willing to reveal her secret? And will Calen cast her out
as being in cahoots with the devil or will he cherish his
woman of the dark?
In the Dark is a fast paced wonderful
story about clashing beliefs during a turbulent time in
history. With plagues whipping out villages and belief
systems under attack, I think Ms. Paulin has done a
wonderful job of telling a story that I couldn’t wait to
finish listening to. I Joyfully Recommend In the Dark for
any who are avid audio listeners or someone who wants to
give it a try.
The reader that Total-E-Bound has
chosen for their audio works is easily understood and with
the British accent fantastic for the voice of Katherine, and
the rest of the characters.
