    I loved this book

    This was a great read!! I read the first book and had to read this one. This book is actually better than the first. Can't wait until she writes the next one to see what happens!

    Not the best I've read...

    Liked the characters and plot but HATED the writing. I really don't think this woman can write. Lots of grammar mistakes that made me reread the same sentence 3 or 4 times to understand what she was saying. I'd liked to read the others because the story was good but I just don't like the bad writing style.

    Archeologist Rurik Wilder left the Air Force on a quest to save his family from eternal damnation. He has succeeded on his first endeavor and feels close to finding the second segment of the ancient icon that is their only hope.--------------- In the Orkney Islands, Rurik reaches a cave at about the same time reporter Tasya Hunnicutt arrives there. She has an agenda she hides from the serious hunk that she is attracted to. Tasya holds the malevolent Varinskis assassins accountable for the deaths of her family she plans to make them pay for this. Unknown to her Rurik has Varinskis blood flowing inside him.------------ The second Darkness Chosen (see SCENT OF DARKNESS) paranormal romantic suspense thriller is filled with action and adventure, but it is the conflict between the compelling lead couple that makes this a must read for sub-genre fans. Rurik and Tasya may be attracted to one another, but both feels that is irrelevant as each is on a personal quest that will not allow anything even love to intrude. They interpret events differently and try to trump the other. Christine Dodd writes a delightful dark entry as not even love seems strong enough to shine lights on this pair.------------ Harriet Klausner

    'Touch of Dispointment'

    This new shape shifting series, Darkness Chosen seemed interesting. Each Wilder son transforms into a different predator. The books giving the impression that the Wilder siblings are different than their barbarian Varinski cousins based on upbringing. However the male leads are beyond dominate. I understand the female leads are infatuated with the male counterpart, but ¿no¿ should mean ¿no.¿ Rurik may be an archaeologist, but does he have to act like a guy from the same century as the artifacts his uncovering? The mother, Zorana, surely would not have approved of either of her sons, Jasha¿s or Rurik¿s behavior.

    I couldn't put this book down

    I have read both books of this series. I couldn't put either of the books down until they were finished. I did enjoy book 2 a little more than book 1. I can't wait until July 1st for book 3!

    Waste

    I was really looking forward to this book and I'm really disappointed that I actually spent the cover price on it. It had very little romance and was mostly plot to move the storyline forward. Really a waste. The heroine had a huge backstory and I liked her, but she had such a 180 characterwise at the end that I just had to wince. Rurik was all right, but his backstory was nonsensical. I know Ms. Dodd can write much better than this. The last few chapters were in fuzzy, la-dee-da land. I knew I wasn't going to be in love with it because I was really interested in Adrik's story, but I wasn't prepared to be so disappointed. Nor can I find any information about the next book anywhere. I really liked the first book. Its characters and story really draw you in, but this wasn't nearly as well written.
