Editorial Reviews

Romance Junkies - Alexis .
DESIRES UNLEASHED: KNIGHTS OF THE DARKNESS CHRONICLES was a great multi-layered story that will capture the readers attention and have them clamoring for more of this intriguing series. The possibility of a relationship between Natasha, Darian, and Xavier is so delicious that readers will be glued to the book to find out if they're successful. D.N. Simmons has created an entertaining story and I look forward to reading more of her work.
Paranormal Romance Review - Janalee Ruschhaupt
"D. N. Simmons has stepped into the paranormal arena with such greats as, Christine Feehan and Sherrilyn Kenyon."
Amazon - J.C. Owens
"For those of you who love moresomes, this book will hit the spot, with supernatural hotness thrown in. Weres and vampires are treated with such casualness that they seem all the more real! Lots of strong males and fiesty females!"
Amazon - Nicholas Grabowsky
"This particular novel is as fresh and original as the genre as to offer."
From Amazon. - G.A. .GA Hauser
"In a time when vampire books have become commonplace, DN Simmons has given her readers a unique voice among the genre.

I understand that the author is new, or atleast I think so... the story line is okay but I found myself skimming through parts I didn't care about and waiting for the book to be over( I can't start a book without finishing it.) This book has potential with the proper editors to polish it.

As an avid reader of such writers as Anne Rice, Anne Bishop, and Laurell Hamilton, I recently decided to broaden my horizons by acquiring novels by other authors of similar genre. I am horrified that I actually paid money for this book. I am truly baffled by the high star rating. This book would best be utilized by a Freshman English class to teach a lesson on 'How Not to Write a Novel.' It showcases everything from grammatical errors to spelling errors, issues of tense, thesaurus abuse and basic punctuation problems. The plot is marginal and the characters are one dimensional as well as painfully shallow. For the love of all that you hold dear, spend your hard earned money elsewhere. I wish that I had.

This book is terrible. The characters are barely fleshed out and are very predictable. Everyone is hot, sexy, and selfish. Its not believable at all. Dont waste your time

This is the sloppiest writing I've ever encountered. Within the first few pages, I've encountered dozens of errors in spelling, grammer and punctuation that are so glaring it's hard to concentrate on the story. The characters are flat and the dialogue is stilted. An altogether poor effort.

It was a really decent book to have been free, pretty sure I'll look into the series.

If you can get past all the grammatical errors and punctuation errors and actually just read the book it's really good it just needs to be edited properly but other than that the storyline is amazing the characters are fantastic and it's overall a really good book it just wasn't well written

This book was too slow moving for me. It was like reading 4 separate stories at once, vearing off in one direction and then another. One story line involving a master vampire and his lover. One involving a shifter police officer and his partner. One involving an unemployed human and her roommate. Another involving a leopard shifter pack. Nearly toward the end the vampire, police and human parts of the story came together but I still don't know what the purpose of the leopard shifters tory had to do with anything. Too many characters and stories to form a cohesive story.

This book has way too many plot threads and zero editing. Every character is shallow and can barely go a minute without thinking of, wanting, or having badly written sex. I feel like this was written by a high school student, one that should have received a failing mark on a very poorly written paper. I have no idea how this received a high raiting unless it's from the author's friends who didn't actually read this piece of trash but are trying to be helpful to.the author. ***Seriously, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS POORLY WRITTEN, CONVOLUTED, NON-EDITED DRIVEL! Even if it's free don't bother.***

Really good. I appreciate the time the author invested in creating supernatural characters who are convincingly genuine and true to their particular nature. Vampires, werewolves and humans interact to achieve a common goal in solving a crime. Steamy, lusty scenes unfold throughout the story; both heterosexual & homosexual. The suspense keeps you reading.
