"Rowe is a paranormal star!" ~J.R. Ward

Six hundred years ago, Elijah Ross was tortured into insanity and thrust into a mental hell that no living creature has ever survived…except him. Now, that ancient evil is back, and it is far more deadly. Elijah is all that stands between it and the destruction of all of humanity, but each step he takes drags him ruthlessly back into the nightmare that once consumed him. Elijah's only chance is Ana Matthews, whose sensual kisses and passionate fire thrust hope and light into his blackened heart and fragmented mind. But Ana’s deadly past could be the final trigger for Elijah's descent into irretrievable madness and the destruction of his soul, humanity and what is left of his heart.

Editorial Reviews

Bex 'n Books - Becky Johnson
“Book three of the Order of the Blades series is…superbly original and excellent...the passion, struggle and the depth of emotion that Ana and Elijah face is so brutal, yet is also pretty awe inspiring. I was swept away by Stephanie's depth of character detail and emotion....much more raw, more fierce and many ways more real compared to the characters that we've previously known and loved (who we still see and continue to enjoy in Darkness Surrendered).”
Sizzling Hot Book Reviews - Tamara Hoffa
"Darkness Surrendered, in my opinion is the best novel of the series thus far…Darkness Surrendered drew me so deeply into the story that I felt Ana and Elijah's emotions as if they were my own…they completely engulfed me in their story…Ingenious plot turns and edge of your seat suspense…make Darkness Surrendered one of the best novels I have read in years. I absolutely could not put Darkness Surrendered down. I cried, I laughed, I cursed and I plotted ways to torture

    WOWZA!!!!!! This book was like a rolling stone down a very steep

    WOWZA!!!!!! This book was like a rolling stone down a very steep cliff, it keeps gaining speed until you finally think you hit rock bottom when fates steps in and stops you dead in your tracks. Darkness Surrendered picks up where we left off in Darkness Seduced with Elijah still lost under a pile of rubble and his sheva and The Order trying to find him.

    This was a gripping way to end the original trilogy of The Order of the Blade. The whole time I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know Stephanie was going to make everything okay between Elijah & Ana. And let me tell you she put me through the emotional ringer with these two. Just when I think it can’t get any worse it does. Let me tell you how much I hate an author that is good at writing the bad guys. When a bad guys is written good you almost want to root for him.

    So my only fault with this book is that I think Ezekiel gets off way too easy. You will know what I mean when you read the book. I was a little pisses at the events at the very end of the book, but like every good author Stephanie gave me a happily ever after, well that is until sheva destiny comes back for them. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

    Thank you Stephanie for the optionity to read and review your book. :)

    Fast Paced and Action Packed!

    Book three in the Order of the Blade series starts off at break necking speed. The forbearer of the Calydon race, Ezekiel, is walking death. He's a bitter warrior full of evil that has been locked in a isolated prison for 2 thousand years and he has just escaped which in turn has cause the underground tunnels to collapse around Elijah. The other Order members are frantically searching for him as well as Ana Mathews, Elijah's mate. Ana and the Order Members are starting to lose hope that Elijah is still alive until Ana feels a flicker of energy and immediately knows who it's coming from. She starts to dig through the rubble with her bare hands, desperate to get Elijah free until the other Order members come to help with shovels. What she sees once Elijah has been freed shocks her to her core. The condition of his body is so severe Ana doesn't know how he's still alive. Not only is everyone worried about Elijah going Rogue since he has found his Sheva but Elijah doesn't know yet that Ana carries his mark.

    Stephanie Rowe has created a world so full of raw emotion it's hard not to connect with these characters. The fierce determination in Elijah and his feeling toward Ana are so intense that what Ana is makes no different to him. I really like the idea of how the mating is done in stages and how the warriors mark appears on his mate. *SPOILER ALERT* What I didn't expect to ever happen was the possibility of a Sheva to carry TWO marks! That was a great twist to the story and the way it played out was brilliant!
    I found this book hard to put down, it has a great flow to it and the action will keep you on the edge of your seat!
