    Reviewer: Brittany  Rating: 5 out of 5 Fairies  Holy Hannah! I

    Reviewer: Brittany 
    Rating: 5 out of 5 Fairies 

    Holy Hannah! I cannot express enough how much I loved this book. I read the last one and thought I'd love for this to be a series. And what do ya know...EUREKA! I was informed it was. Imagine how giddy I was when I learned of this and received the book. I was entranced from beginning to the end. I was even called a giggly little school girl at work I loved it so much. I think my stomach got quite the workout from this lovely novel.

    The dialogue is so good and Natasha is so brave. I'm glad that she has embraced her abilities more from the first book. It is very unfortunate what happened to Annette but I'm proud of how feisty Natasha became because of it. She was sad and forlorn when she found out and the lovely men in her life where there to help support her. This book is filled with strong, independent women and true flippin' gentleman. It's not everyday you get to read about the gentlemanly ways of these male characters. It's enough to make a girl swoon! Not to mention I wanna take the species of today's males and give them a lecture. They could sure learn a thing or two from these characters.

    The action was super intense. Their time is Russia had me on the edge of my seat. The dialogue throughout the whole book was so well written. I could envision every scene as if it were playing in front of me on the big screen. Speaking of which...I sure would LOVE to see these come to a big screen. There was a resolution for Darian, Sergio, Devin, and even Annette. I honestly thought whenever Xavier made the deal that he did with Eremei, that he had fallen off his rocker. Silly me, I shoulda known there was a method to his madness. And I'm super happy that Natasha is coming to terms with their method. Not to mention their relationship. Oooohhhhh I can't wait to see where that relationship is gonna go.

    However, I have an inkling in my belly that at some point she is gonna have to be turned. Especially since everyone keeps ranting and raving how she a human, humans are vulnerable, she's going to get injured, blah, blah, blah. Honestly. Men. They think us women are less resourceful than we really are. Hmph. I guess we shall see! Or at least I will. I can't wait to start the next one. Especially since I know there's several more. Oh I can almost taste the excitement. Job well done 5 Shining Stars!

    While The Guilty Innocent is the second book in the Knights of D

    While The Guilty Innocent is the second book in the Knights of Darkness Chronicles the prologue to this book catches you up pretty well and it can be a stand alone story. Some of the nuances of the relationships between the characters will be lost by not reading book one first however.




    The Guilty Innocent takes up right where Desires Unleashed (book #1) left off, We have a mystery to solve in this book as well and it will take us around the world to search for the killers. This world that Ms. Simmons has created is fraught with challenges for the paranormal characters between human prejudice, political ramifications of their actions and distrust between the groups and types of paranormals. 




    In Guilty Innocent many of those challenges come into play however the main characters of the book are able to pull together despite the differences in race and solve the case.  Interwoven with the mystery and the social challenges are the love stories, some are m/m some are m/m/f and some are m/f. They are both inferred and implicit, some are behind closed doors and others are spelled out for you. It give a different feel to this erotic romance than others. 




    If you are a mystery fan and like some paranormal hot and heavy then you will love this book and this series.




    I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Takes some getting used to

    Wonderful second book in this series. I do have to say thats its hard for me to get through the sex scenes between the males in the story though. Its not my idea of a turn on at all. There really is a great story behind it all though that keeps you turning pages as long as you can get through and accept the male on male action. Not really my cup if tea but i am curious to see what happens next, so i'll buy the 3rd book. Just nit sure how much longer i can hang in there with it.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The story kept my interest all the way through. The charters were very interesting and I love the way they relate to each other. There is tenderness and strength in each of them that I could easily relate to, and a dry humor that I find very refreshing and real. Although I haven’t read the books before this one in the series I was still able to make complete sense of everything. I very much want to read all of these books and am looking forward to another installment.

    This was such a brilliant sequel to Desires Unleashed. It kept me even more captivated than its predecessor and knitted together some of the loose ends left over from the first novel. The characters returned with a vengeance and I could barely put it down.




    I appreciate that Simmons fills the reader in on all of the pertinent details from the first novel, while continuing on with the new story. It allows past readers to refresh themselves on what had previously happened. There is also enough detail that someone could begin the series with this novel and not be lost. I also appreciate that this novel has an actual ending. Don’t get me wrong, to get the full impact of the series, one should read the first novel first and there is a great deal of room for sequels to come after but I enjoy the fact that this novel has a beginning and an ending, never leaving you hanging or confused.




    Simmons somehow makes situations seem simultaneously off the wall and completely normal. This novel is so well written that you can’t help but get caught up in the storyline. She evokes emotions in the reader that coincide with the action in the story. Simmons made me laugh, she made me nervous, she even brought tears to my eyes. Each and every emotion is evoked naturally through the author’s amazing storytelling skills. 




    The characters in this novel made a seamless transition from the first instalment in the series. They continue to grow and become further developed. They are each strong characters who stand up for what they believe in and for their friends and families, regardless of personal cost. They are also very emotionally developed characters. As a reader, you really get to know the characters and the worlds in which you live. You can actually feel the characters’ turmoil (both physical and emotional) coming through the author’s words. I also love how you these characters give you insights into their worlds, and the multiplicity of worlds that make up the lives of these phenomenally loveable characters. 




    This novel has romance, intrigue, suspense, and supernatural elements all put together in a very entrancing, fluid whole. What more could you want?

    "The Guilty Innocent" is the second book in the 'Knights of the Darkness Chronicles'. D.N. Simmons pens his plot totally addicting with vampires, shifters, mystery, action packed with a bit of sexual romance. I was totally engrossed in the story line and I'm hoping there is a third book to this series.
