Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Slade’s fourth Marked Souls paranormal (after Vowed in Shadows) tosses in a twist for the Chicago league of talyan, warriors possessed by repentant demons. After their archivist betrays them, the London HQ sends over a new human Bookkeeper. Sidney Westerbrook wants to prove himself through this temporary assignment, an opportunity boosted when he finds a previously unknown female talya. Alyce doesn’t know how long she’s been roaming the streets battling evil ferales, but she’s intrigued by Sid and the chance to end her loneliness. With Sid expected back in London and Alyce pressured to choose a mate from the talyan, their budding romance is further complicated by a new enemy determined to take over the city. Slade’s plot packs plenty of action, but Sid’s backstory is delayed too long, weakening his character development in a group of forceful personalities. Agent: Becca Stumpf, Prospect Agency. (Mar.)

    I have waited breathlessly for DARKNESS UNDONE by Jessa Slade to

    I have waited breathlessly for DARKNESS UNDONE by Jessa Slade to come out. I was not disappointed! With great style and story, Ms Slade continues her Marked Souls series with yet another story that won't let you go. Sidney Westerbook has always wanted to be a league Bookkeeper. Alyce Carver doesn't want to be alone any longer. As usual, be careful what you ask for. A must read with a special place on my keeper shelf.

    Darkness Undone is book four in Jessa Slade’s Marked Souls

    Darkness Undone is book four in Jessa Slade’s Marked Souls series and she works her magic once again. Leave it to Jessa Slade to draw us in, intrigue us with her gritty urban fantasy, get us addicted to those all powerful Alpha Males, tease us with little bits of Darkness Undone, then to give us this wonderful tilt.

    In Darkness we Meet Sidney Westerbrook a trained observer, one who knows how to put his emotion to the side, a geek, in short a bookkeeper. From the beginning we know Sid is not your average Alpha Male we see in the Talyans, for starters, he is human. Sent from London to work as Chicago’s temporary bookkeeper and just a wee bit arrogant and condescending when it comes to the Talyans.. He knows his place and is all set to take over as London’s bookkeeper as soon as his father steps down. He has come to Chicago with his own agenda, he wants to observe the bonding between male and female talyans. He wants to see what causes it and what it does to the talyans and most of all he wants to figure out why it is only happening in Chicago. For all his superiority, the Chicago team really doesn’t want him there. They know he has his own agenda and feels they are the wild cards of the talyan nation..

    On Sid’s first night in Chicago, he is sent to his room like the good little bookkeeper they want him to be. After all, why should they trust a bookkeeper? There last one betrayed them, embezzled from them and destroyed archives. Add that to his obvious attitude, why ever would they want him around? Sid of course has a curious mind, sitting alone in his room is not what he came for so off he goes, wandering the streets of Chicago. Typical overly intelligent person, smart as can be but the common sense of a turnip. It’s like the blond who goes into the basement in the spooky house when she hears something.. You just know he is gonna die!!

    Alyce, a tiny spitfire of a rogue talyan has been running around Chicago, hiding in cubbies and fighting demons for years. Not remembering where she came from, even who she is, she is lost, constantly starving and her only “friend” is a Djinn man... One night she happens upon a man who is under attack and she saves him. The thing is, he sees her, really sees her. He knows what she is and how she became what she is. How could a girl not fall for such a man. Still, she is cautious and afraid not wanting to trust anyone but Sid. This quiet, determined woman, just out of adolescence wants nothing to do with anyone but Sid.

    We see bits and pieces of the other Talyans, but the secondary characters that really get your attention are Nanette and Fane .. They learn about loss and who they can really trust. We also meet an intriguing new enemy.. Well a couple of them, one who makes you wonder, can a Djinn become a fighter for good and one who is just deliciously evil. I won’t expound on any of the above cuz well, I am just mean..

    While I love the Bad Boy Alpha Male type, in reality I am a sexy nerd kinda girl. There is just something powerful about a quiet man who is intelligent. Not a weak man, a man who focuses on other things.. Oh yeah Sid is sexy, stupid sometimes but oh so sexy. In many ways Alyce is the stronger one of the two.

    This was a most excellent story a nice twist in the plot and introduces is to an entire slew of possibilities. She moves the Chicago Talyans into their new battle with humor, style and steam. I really do love this series.. most excellent job Jessa!!
