    Melena is just beginning to enjoy her life out of the Military w

    Melena is just beginning to enjoy her life out of the Military when her roommate, Aniya, goes missing while meeting a man in Fairbanks, Alaska. When Aniya fails to contact Melena, her mother and other friends, Melena has no choice but to drop everything and search for Aniya. Melena has a special talent, a built in lie detector, and she is known as a “Sensor”. Facing Vampires, Melena has her own worries. Terrified that Aniya is with the Vampires, she gets a chilling phone call from her, “GO HOME NOW”. She knows that there is no way she can abandon her, but once she finds Aniya, she is faced with a bigger problem. How will they both make it out alive? She meets a man who makes her heart race, but the timing is bad. Can he help save her and her best friend? How can you hope to love someone when you have kept to yourself your entire life?

    The interactions of the characters and the depth of the world that the author created is amazing. This book was such a wonderful read, I was unable to put it down until the very last page, wishing that I had more of it to read. This book and author has already been placed on my “favorite” list. Darkness Haunts grabs your attention, and not only holds it, but is a true pleasure to read. Fans of the paranormal will NOT want to miss this fantastic book.

    Melena is a sensor who travels to Alaska to find a friend who has disappeared, and walks into a nest of supernatural beings – all intent on preventing Mel from accomplishing her goal. Using her military training and her sensor abilities, she manages to get herself into a situation that will turn her world upside down as she finds unlikely allies in her quest to save her friend and as her own life hangs in the balance.

    I met this author on-line a couple years ago, and have listened with interest as she talked about the process of writing her first book. Although paranormal fiction is not my favorite read, I was eager to see how her personality translated into her writing, and found myself captivated by Susan’s ability to weave a compelling tale. She has drawn on her own military background and love of the genre and successfully created a well-written and entertaining story. Great job, Mistress!

    Darkness Haunts is a fast paced urban fantasy with a strong female lead.




    I grabbed this story to check out in my free time and really I'm glad I did. Susan Illene creates a story that is both entertaining and quite gratifying to my urban fantasy requirements.




    Melena Sanders is a sensor, which means she doesn’t have many “powers” except she can sense other supernatural beings. Her kick butt strength comes from her service in the military, which I absolutely loved.




    Needing to rescue her friend from a bad decision going terribly wrong, Melena finds herself hip deep in supernaturals. 




    The story was an easy, entertaining and very enjoyable. I found the characters to be a perfect mix of peculiar and unexpected with the lines between good and evil becoming occasionally blurred. 




    Issues with the story…
    Although they were intriguing, something was missing that created a strong connection to the characters. There were also a few “contradictions” in Melena’s powers that caught my attention.




    In the end, Illene provides the potential for a great new series to follow. We have possible romantic interests, kick butt heroine and a strong urban fantasy plot. I will definitely keep my eye on this series.
