    There have been reports that Darklove will be the last book in t

    There have been reports that Darklove will be the last book in the Dark Ink Chronicles series by Elle Jasper, but that is only speculation due to the ending of this installment. Jasper ties up a lot of loose ends with Darklove, but also shows the possibility of new avenues to take the series, so readers will just have to read this one and wait to see if others follow. Jasper's knack for writing about the paranormal is showcased against Riley Poe's heartbreak at loosing her vampire lover Eli. They story is emotionally charged and full of surprises, readers will not be disappointed.

    What I liked:

    Riley is a great character. She started out a bit disillusioned in Afterlight but she has grown so much between that first book and this fifth one. In Darklove we see Riley as a very tenacious and determined woman. She know what she wants and she isn't afraid to take any risk to get it, including returning to hell on earth for Eli. But there is also a vulnerable side to her that endears the reader as they watch her agonize over Eli's supposed death. Jasper does an amazing job with this character.

    Eli is definitely what I would call a dark hero. He is what he is and he isn't ashamed of it. He embraces his vampire abilities and he teaches Riley how to use her own gifts in previous books. In this one there is some possibility that Eli will be a very different character from what readers have learned to expect. That he may have some part in the slaughter of innocents. I liked the who idea that Riley may not be able to love him as he is now and how love triumphs in the end for these two unlikely lovers. 

    The ending was fantastic to say the least. Riley and Eli were certainly meant for each other and seeing them get their happy-ever-after has many readers wondering if this might be the end of the series. If it is... it was a great way to go out, if not... Jasper has shown some great possibilities for the future in this book as well. Perhaps a spin off series, or even more adventures for Riley. I'm looking forward to seeing where we go from here.

    What I didn't like:

    I have had this needling issue with this series throughout. It is a paranormal series and one must throw out their ideas of a convention and what is possible in order to enjoy it, however there is one part that I don't quite get. Riley must be absolutely irresistible because every single unattached character in the series has a thing for her. I understand that she is the heroine and to some extent that is natural, but I think Jasper goes a bit overboard with Riley's charisma sometimes, even Eli's brother is not immune... LOL. It was just a little over the top and certainly not a deal breaker in reading this wonderfully written series.

    Bottom Line:

    If you've read the others you are gonna love this one. If you haven't you have to read at least books three and four to make sense of some of the stuff that happens in Darklove, but you are going to go that far, why not read the whole thing? It's a great series and Darklove is probably my favorite so far. It's definitely worth your time if you love paranormal romance or just romance in general... Try something a bit out of your comfort zone, you might be surprised at what you like.

    Awesome book, killer series

    Sad to see the adventure end, but enjoyed the ride along the way.
    Beginning, and middle moved at a fast pace,but closer to the end of the book, it started to drag out while tying up loose ends.
    Overall a good read

    Love it

    I love this seires, it took me awhile to finally decide to buy the first book.. but I'm glad I did, because I could relate to reliy and enjoyed the action and romance combo, I couldn't put them down, and I love it when I find a seires like that, sadly I tend to blow through the books too fast and end up having to wait a year for the next book... but ya give this seires a.chance.

    Riley Poe's love Eligius "Eli" Dupre is lost to her si

    Riley Poe's love Eligius "Eli" Dupre is lost to her since Edinburgh. She's become a shell of who she used to be harder and colder without him. Jake Andorra founder of Worldwide Unexplained Phenomena (WUP) has assigned Noah Miles and Riley to cover the rogue vampires over running Inverness. Riley's unusual ability to dream keeps her seeing her love and another woman together. When Riley comes face to face with Eli, she's stunned to see him kissing another woman. Riley has jealousy ripping thru her to attack but Noah holds her back until they know more. Noah and Riley meet up with Rhine MacLeod, human with vampiric tendencies taking care of vampires, werewolves, and other nasty supernatural creatures. Rhine explains that Carrine is witch and vampire or witchpire and a powerful one at that. Can Riley get Eli away from Carrine? Who else is pulling Carrine's strings? Will Eli come back to Riley whole? Your answers await you in Darklove.

    I love this series! Riley is kickass and powerful person. Eli is lost to her but has moments where he seems to know recognize her. I sincerely hope this series continues. I highly recommend this book and the rest of the series for anyone looking for strong female character.
