Talismans carved into his body. A lethal darkness amassing inside him. A woman who calls to his spirit on levels so intimate and so passionate that his deadened soul screams in agony. Calydon warrior Kane Santiago has a past he can't remember, and a deadly legacy closing in on him. His only chance is Sarah Burns, a sensual, courageous woman fighting to save herself and her family from an ancient, brutal evil.

In Darkness Awakened, the first book of The Order of the Blade, we were introduced to a group of immortal warriors, known as the Calydons, cursed with a dark side. Each Warrior is destined to meet his soul mate, so drawn to her, that he is unable to resist bonding with her…..but the lover’s destiny is to destroy each other and everything they care about, the moment the bond is complete. In Darkness Reborn, we finally get to read Kane’s story. The mysterious warrior with Talismans carved all over his body and no memory of who he is. Kane is searching for his past and he has found his answers with Sarah, his soul mate. But Sarah has her own secrets and wounded history. These two tortured souls must learn to trust each other before they destroy themselves and the rest of the world. The connection between Kane and Sarah is instant and strong. The scenes between these two were extremely passionate and fiery. Take a deep breath before you start reading, because I found myself actually holding my breath several times throughout the story. Stephanie takes us for a emotional ride from the first page till the very end. It’s was a roller coaster ride of emotions, action and non-stop adventure. There were a few times I even caught myself yelling at the pages. And I loved that there was just a touch of humor to help ease the high volume of tension that was bouncing from the pages. Darkness Reborn is an absolute AMAZING read!!!

I have to preface this review by saying that I knew this one would be awesome. I had been intrigued by Kane throughout the first books in this series and I was salivating for his story. When I found out what a challenge this book was to write, I knew it would be memorable. I've always thought that the toughest stories to write are the ones that have a longer lasting and deeper impact. And this one was no exception. Kane's story have stuck with me weeks after reading the story. This is not only a wonderful addition to the Order of the Blade world, but is a fabulous story that will leave you wanting more long after you have read, and re-read, the last paragraph. Stephanie Rowe never disappoints and yet again, proves to us all why she is one of the best paranormal romance authors out there.

WOW! I knew going into this book that Kane had some crazy stuff happen to him in his past. I also knew he was pretty messed up from all that stuff. What I didn’t know was just how seriously messed up both him & his past were. What a roller coaster ride I was on while reading this book. Sarah is a very interesting female character and through her story we find out more about Kane, and get some hints into things that might come in the future books. I just love the little hints or teasers if you will that Stephanie litters her books with. They always make me crazy anxious waiting for the upcoming releases. I was also surprised that even though this was Kane’s story and he was the main focus, I found myself becoming a major Thano fan! I am kind of glad that I read this in ebook format because I am afraid I might have ripped the pages in a print book trying to get to the next page. Stephanie Rowe has definitely become a MUST-read author for me and I highly recommend the Order of the Blade series to everyone.

Darkness Reborn I have loved every single book in this series, but all for different reasons. Yet with Darkness Reborn, Stephanie Rowe has truly out done herself. She's managed to create a unique read with the forth book in her Order of the Blade Series, whilst managing to retain a familiar style, pattern and the wonderful characters that I have grown to love. In Darkness Reborn, we follow the many trials and tribulations of the mysterious Kane and the beautiful Sarah. My emotions were constantly in turmoil as I was successfully sucked into Kane and Sarah's world. Stephanie very effectively developed two amazing characters that were impossible not to fall in love with. I cheered, celebrated, gasped and was held in a collection of horror states as the story unfolded. For a paranormal romance, in a world of fantasy, Stephanie Rowe certainly knows how to create a world so realistic, and so believable that it was impossible not get caught up in the unfolding drama. Darkness Reborn is a remarkable story of love, loss and self-discovery. Perfect!

Stephanie Rowe manages yet another great hit! She always manages to write with such passion that it flows off of the pages and straight into her readers. If you like action packed paranormal romance and you haven't read this series yet, I have to highly recommend that you do!! All the stories in this series have been very intense but this one is the most intense so far. Kane and Sarah are put to test after test and have to discover if they each have what it takes to overcome all their obstacles. Very action packed, very emotional ride that will leave you trying to catch your breath for a long time after you have finished!

I think this was my favorite so far in the series. Just when you think you have it all figured out, she keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you are a Black Dagger fan I think you will love this.

Stephanie Rowe did it again! This 5th story in the Order of the Blade series is about Order member Kane Santiago and his journey in discovering who he is. With the help of Sara Burns he does just that. This story is complex and mesmerizing. Stephanie draws you in to this tale of love and loss and evil and redemption. I know this sounds cliche but I laughed and cried and gasped the entire time. These characters are multifacited and co and she makes it very easy to love them and root for them! I guarantee you will not be disappointed!!

Kane Santiago was the Calydon warrior that had ancient designs carved into his skin. He had no idea where they came from or even where he came from. For 500 years he had been a Calydon warrior after being found in the gutter by Dante but he still had a huge emptiness inside him like he was void a soul. He fought for the Order's mission even though he felt he had no moral center. Sarah Burns is an angel. They are very rare and not many left. She grew up in a village called Akara where as a child a black specter who haunted the woods called Los Muerte wiped out all of the angels from the village but a very few six hundred years ago. Sarah fears from the beginning that Kane might be Los Muerte but she also knows that she is his sheva and they have already completed part of the bond. As the story goes on we find out Kane's history and who is behind the creation of Los Muerte. This person is making all of the just turned warriors turn into killing machines and he wants all of the angels and Calydon warrior wiped off the face of the earth. Can Kane find his true self again - the man with a soul or will he forever be doomed to be a soulless demon called Los Muerte.
