    This is a terrific Paladin romantic urban fantasy

    Devlin Bane is concerned with the instability between Earth and Kalitia especially around volcanoes in the northwest. He asks limping Paladin warrior Hunter Fitzsimon who recently left St. Louis for Washington to investigate especially near Justice Point, where he suspects avaricious folks on both sides of the barrier will destroy anything or anyone for money.

    Hunter rents an apartment from tea shop owner Tate Justice. She is curious about her hunk upstairs while he fears his desire for her. Tate follows him into the nearby woods to learn the secrets he strenuously conceals from her. He kisses her senseless, but leaves himself wanting more though he fears he will have to choose between love and his mission; she now knows his secret involves keeping earth safe though she is not sure from what.

    This is a terrific Paladin romantic urban fantasy as the hero may have come back from the dead but suffers from PTSD while the heroine will learn the meaning of the full verse from Alice in Wonderland: "curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction it brought him back". Filled with action, anguish and love, fans will enjoy Defeat the Darkness with its dual meaning title.

    Alexis Morgan has another winner, right up with book one and two in the series

    Book 6 picks back up with great story telling that books 1 and 2 began. Books 3-5 were good but each seemed to lack something. Book 6 was not lacking in anything. Well developed charaters and an entertaining plot kept me engaged from beginning to end. Loved Hunter and Tate!

    One of the best

    I have read books in the Paladin series before, but none of them can measure up to what Defeat The Darkness rises to. So far it is my favorite book throughout the series( though I've skipped a book or 2), the way the book is written makes it so easy to lose yourself to the world that Morgan has created with the Paladins.

    The Book:
    After being tortured to death, literally, Hunter isn't the same (somewhat carefree, charming) Paladin he used to be. Now that it's been months after the attack he's being sent into the care of Devlin Bane who sends him off to scout out a barrier that was recently found. While in the town he gets to meet the small community which consists of mostly the elderly and his landlady who is anything but elderly.
    Along Hunters journey to heal what was taken from him the last time he died(emotionally and physically) he finds a women who stands up to his erratic moods and matches him in his passion.
    But can a Paladin who thinks he's been ruined from beyond repair try to let his love for a women interfere with his duty as a Paladin?

    My Opinion(again):
    The book was out right amazing work for the paranormal, romantic genre, the writing was easy to read while it keep you engaged and didnt leave the reader with the feeling that the author wrapped up the ending of the book in a perfect little bow to end the story.
    Whether you've read the Paladin series or not this book is a wonderful read, it doesnt involve the characters too much to make you feel like your missing out but its also a great addition to the series.
