I’ve read all of the books in this series and have liked all of them. I enjoy the interaction of the characters and learning their stories as the plot unfolds. The relationship between Raven and Christian is unfolding in most unexpected ways. The stories that are interwoven in the plot are well thought out. I’m enjoying this series and can’t wait for the next book!

A Suspense Filled & Edge of the Seat Read!! ⚔ Well, I took my time reading 'Blackout' as I wanted to savour it and I'm so glad I did!! Members of the Higher Authority are being murdered in this installment. Keystone are not asked to investigate but are tasked with identifying one of the victims Victor tasks Christian & Raven with this job. It's tricky, sensitive & political - You have to wonder what their Leader was thinking sending these two They're both as subtle as charging Rhinos in a house made of crystal They do get the job done though! We spend much more time with certain members of Keystone in 'Blackout'. I absolutely loved that about this book We see them beginning to open up to each other at different times and actually divulging some past secrets, which is touching & endearing in every instance Although much of the story feels like it's mostly just set with these specific 5-6 characters, it somehow managed to keep me guzzling coffee like a junky & almost constantly feeling on edge!! Raven & Christian continue with the slow pace she requested until - Well until .... People from past books, in this series, start to rear their heads again on & off throughout The 'Blackout' of the title almost becomes a character in its own right, It is that integral to this story!! I think the Author was so artful in her placement of the bouts of action throughout this book, You never quite know when it will explode, yet again, to the forefront of the storyline ... The suspense was so stressful - I loved it There are new allies made & old enemies rediscovered, Trust is gained & some then broken, Love may be found but then it's brutally slain. Change seems to be a foot in the Keystone Compound. I just hope us readers survive it all, because after parts of this book, I just don't know how much more my poor heart can take!! This was an excellent read. I loved how the suspenseful plot was interwoven with the personal interactions. And can I just say .. Damn, Dannika Dark writes 'steamy' so well So in summary: it's full of feels, death, treachery, heat, heartbreak & so much suspense and intensity you'll chew your finger nails off. Yep, 5 Stars from me Debbie, 1970, UK

Not sure what everyone is raving about...this book is painful. I’m really, really not enjoying it. I’m over all the ups and downs with their relationship and how indecisive she is when she is supposed to be a tough badass. Plot on this one isn’t very interesting either and I am only half way through even though I have been trying to read it for a couple months now. Just can’t seem to find the enthusiasm to push on. I’m going to skip to the end and buy the next one and hope to hell its better. I’d love a return to the vibe of the other books.

Dannika Dark is seriously one of the best authors out there right now, regardless of genre. All of her series, and I mean all, are wonderful.

* This review may contain spoilers for past books in this series. This book was bittersweet in the best way possible! Every time I thought I knew what to expect I had the pleasure of having the rug pulled out from under me. Don't get me wrong, I was loving every minute of it! I also adored how well interlaced the storylines are. There are quite a few small tidbits that were presented in past books that are just now growing into complex plot points. I can't wait to see where this goes! I don't know how this author does it but she's succeeded in making me care about every single main character in the Keystone group. I'm too invested in everyone's happily ever after and I don't know what to do with myself until that happens. Just when I thought things were going too well with Christian and Raven things went 50 steps bad in the span of one conversation. Why can't they be happy and stay happy? Christian has proven time and time again that he actually cares about Raven in more than a fling kind of way. Raven reciprocates his feelings, but they're doomed to be apart. I will riot. They need a happily ever after. And none of this "all in good time" BS. I jokingly predicted the Patrick twist at 1 am while I was listening to the audio book and slightly delirious. I was so proud of myself for that one! I loved the solution Shepherd's dilemma came to thought. It was sweet and imperfect. Just like the Keystone group/family. Had I known the epilogue would drop that bomb I would have probably held off on reading it until the next book released. Things were bad until then between Raven and Christian, but I can imagine that thanks to that twist it's going to get much worse before it gets better. The Audio Book: I have nothing but amazing things to say about the narration! Nicole Poole continues to do a fantastic job. The number of different accents and tones (both male and female) she can realistically do is mind-blowing!

Blackout is now my favorite in this series. It has all the elements for an amazing story in one book. Hard to put down. Will be reading it a second time. Can't wait for the next book in this series.

Blackout is the fifth book in the Crossbreed series by Dannika Dark. I would caution against reading these books as a stand-alone. There are several interconnecting plotlines throughout the series. All of the background information is important in the development of the characters and the bigger narrative. The Crossbreed books center on Raven Black and her adventures with the Keystone group. Raven lives in Cognito where several supernatural beings cohabitate. As a member of Keystone, she does a myriad of different jobs as requested by the breed's Higher Authority. This group can be called in for a variety of things. In Blackout Keystone is tasked to secure several groups of political officials during a period of anarchy taking place in their city. The developing plots in the Crossbreed series continue to progress in Blackout. As is typical, some of the resolutions were gratifying, and some broke my heart. Raven and Christian continue to struggle with their feelings. I surmise personal issues need to be resolved for Raven and Christian's relationship to flourish. I also believe turmoil in Raven and Christian's romance is not Houdini's primary goal. I am keen on discovering what his objective is. Shepard and Niko both have demons in their pasts that are quickly catching up to the Keystone team. Although Shepard winds up better off by the end of Blackout, Niko is going to have to eliminate his demons sooner rather than later. The ensemble present in Keystone is a family. They are a bit wary perhaps, but in the end, they always support each other. In a community that is predominantly lawless, other than dealing with the most heinous of crimes, Keystone struggles to bring justice without giving into the darkness surrounding them. Rather than maintaining the focus on the supernatural elements, this is a tale about humanity. Facing loss of loved ones, rising above PTSD, dealing with extreme prejudice, fighting addiction, creating healthy relationships in both friendships and love. I feel angry with them and sad, and devastated when the world is crashing down around them, and cautiously optimistic, and happy when things go their way. These books represent a deluge of the emotional spectrum. I feel an immediate kinship with Dannika Dark's characters and gloriously praise every book she has written. I admit I have a particular fondness for the Keystone group in the Crossbreed series. I encourage everyone to reach their own conclusion.
