From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Katie Reus, the first three books in her Darkness series in one collection:

Darkness Awakened

Years ago he ended things between them to protect her...

As leader of one of the fiercest werewolf packs in the south, Finn Stavros is in full battle mode 24/7. He's ready for anything--until his vampire long lost love shows up on his doorstep in desperate need of help.

Pregnant and kicked out of her coven, Lyra struggled to raise their rare shifter-vampire daughter Vega alone among humans. When the 16-year-old is kidnapped Lyra swallows her pride and turns to Finn. But how long can she keep him from guessing the truth about who Vega really is? As they race against the clock to save their daughter, they must defeat the threat imposed by demons infiltrating the human world and a hell gate that could destroy the world.

Taste of Darkness

He spent more than a thousand years imprisoned in Hell...

Drake is an ancient dragon shifter, one of the most powerful beings in existence, but over a millennium trapped in utter darkness has left him ill-equipped for modern society. If it wasn't for Victoria, the sweet female brave enough to befriend him, he'd be lost. She's smart and gorgeous and everything he never dared dream of during his years of agonizing loneliness. He may not have anything to offer her, but one thing he knows for sure: he'd die to keep her safe.

Only to fall into the heaven of her touch.

Victoria is a wolf shifter, healer of the Stavros pack. She's seen a lot, but she's never met anybody quite like Drake, the fiery, fascinating shifter who can blaze through the skies unseen by mere mortals. He's lost, dangerous, and the last male she should fall in love with, but the more time she spends helping him navigate modern life, the deeper--and hotter--their connection becomes. She's thrilled when they finally locate his family, but reuniting with his people plunges them both into unimaginable danger. It's a race against the clock trying to figure out who wants them dead and who they can trust, especially when the threat is closer than they ever imagined.

Beyond the Darkness

Now that she has her freedom, she's not giving it up.

Dragon shifter Keelin Petronilla spent centuries in forced hibernation dreaming of one thing: freedom. Now she's living life on her terms--she's ditched her clan for an unruly wolf pack, she tends bar for a half-demon, and she's loving it...until a powerful supernatural being targets her. She intends to handle the mysterious attacks on her own...without the help of dragon Alpha Bran Devlin. Sure, he's sexy in that hot, scowling possessive way, but Keelin wants to live her own life in her own way.

Now that he's found his mate, he's not letting her go.

Former black ops agent Bran Devlin is a born dragon Alpha and leader of a fierce clan. Getting mated was never part of his plan--until a feisty dragon princess gets under his skin in a big way. The hell of it is, she doesn't want a mate; she just wants to have a good time. He plays along, but when a dark and powerful being marks her for death, he's determined to stay by her side in spite of her protests. Now that he's found his mate, he means to keep her safe no matter what the cost...even if he has to risk it all.

This three book bundle from Katie Reus is a treasure of paranormal romances. Her writing is powerful and so compelling. I love that her characters are loyal and protective of family and friends. When they love, they give their whole heart. The action is non-stop and filled with many twists and turns. The stories kept me on the edge of my seat. These three books are keepers. I loved each and every one.

Darkness Awakened Lyra shows up at Finn’s house wanting help to find her daughter Vega who was kidnapped because of a prophecy. Finn finally comes face to face again with his long lost love he has been searching for years to find, so when she needs his help he won’t turn her away. There love was once forbidden; vampires and werewolves aren’t supposed to fall in love and now that Lyra is back in Finn’s life and he’s determined to keep her there no matter what. When he finds out Vega is his daughter there is nothing and no one who will stop him from finding her; he must protect the daughter he never knew existed, once he has done that he must do what he should have done years before. Taste of Darkness Drake is a dragon that has been literally trapped in hell for most of his life. He saves Victoria and is accepted into her wolf pack as a member. Drake remembers nothing of his previous life and the question that remains is how did he end up in hell? Drake’s need to let off steam gives him unwanted attention and the attention of someone who wants revenge. Strangers approach Drake claiming they are his family; where was his family when he was in hell and are they truly who they claim to be? Danger seems to follow Drake wherever he goes and how much is he willing to risk to get the answers he need. Taste of Darkness is a paranormal read full of mystery, suspense, revenge and romance. Beyond the Darkness I knew from the chemistry between Bo and Nyx in previous books that when they finally decide to stop fighting against what they feel and come together it would be off the charts. Friendship between the two turns to love but with a past like Bo’s could Nyx really accept him fully? Nyx owes a favor to her mother and her mother has come to cash in on that favor. Nyx knows what her mother asks of her is too simple but it must be done or Nyx will be at the mercy of her father. Nyx and Bo are in for the journey of their lives and that journey leads them to quite a few surprises along the way. Nyx knows she is powerful but she’s still unsure of her full potential. However, she will definitely learn a few things along the way. I love the way characters from the previous books are always included in the next book and along the way we get a few new characters which leads to more surprises. I cannot wait to see who the next story will be about. This series is a definite recommendation for paranormal book lovers as this book has a little of everything; vampires, dragons, fae, shifters, demons, goddesses and more. This series is perfect for all paranormal lovers who enjoy reading about all types of "creatures" because this series has it all. I've enjoy this series a lot and I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I recommend readers reading the series in order so you don't miss anything going on with the characters because all of the characters introduced in the first book appears in every book.

4.25 stars-THE DARKNESS SERIES 103 by Katie Reus ___ 4 stars---DARKNESS AWAKENED is the introductory storyline in Katie Reus’s new paranormal adult series-Darkness. This is Finn Stavros (Alpha wolf shifter) and Lyra Marius’s (pureblood vampire) story and one that began seventeen years earlier. Darkness Awakened is a story about forbidden love and second chances for two people from different species that have more in common than anyone could have known. It has been close to seventeen years since Lyra was pushed away by the only man she has ever loved and the hurt has only increased in the ensuing years. But Finn knew that to enter into a permanent relationship with a vampire could bring about her death at the hands of his then pack alpha and uncle. To protect Lyra, Finn walked away without explanation and Lyra suffered additional rejection when her vampire coven threw her out. Katie introduces a cast of secondary characters from pack and coven members to a long forgotten species that is larger than life. When the portal to Hell opens, it will take a tentative peace between shifters and vampires to ensure that the world in which they both live is safe for everyone. The reader is pulled into a world where the paranormal is real and the lives of everyone are threatened when a vampire takes control of a young woman whose only sin was to go looking for the father she never knew. If you are a fan of the paranormal; stories with a little bit of mystery and suspense; and a sensual romance between two people that are perfect for each other than Katie’s new DARKNESS series and DARKNESS AWAKENED is the perfect read. •••••• 4.5 stars: TASTE OF DARKNESS is the second instalment in Katie Reus’s adult, contemporary DARKNESS paranormal romance series. This is dragon shifter Drake and wolf shifter/healer Victoria’s storyline. We were first introduced to Victoria and Drake in Darkness Awakened where Drake was revealed asVega’s protector in Hell. Although TASTE OF DARKNESS is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone. We are introduced to a number of secondary characters including Drake’s siblings, extended family and a host of enemy clans who are all vying for control. With the introduction of several new dragons, there appears to be several potential matings on the horizon. Katie Reus adds another imaginative and intense storyline to her repertoire of romantic paranormal novels. TASTE OF DARKNESS takes the reader on a passionate journey, a captivating love story, and an entertaining view of life as a paranormal shifter. •••••••••• 4.25 stars--BEYOND THE DARKNESS is the third installment in Katie Reus’s contemporary adult Darkness paranormal romance series. This is Devlin Clan dragon alpha and former black ops agent Bran Devlin, and dragon shifter princess Keelin Petronilla’s storyline. Keelin is the sister of Drake Petronilla from book two-Taste of Darkness. Told from third person point of view, Beyond the Darkness can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Katie invites the reader into her amazing and fascinating world of shifters, vampires, dragons and demons. Her heroes are alpha male, a little bit over protective, but only have eyes for the woman of their heart. There is always plenty of testosterone when the alpha males move in to protect the females and their mates. Katie knows how to get your blood pumping.
