I was definitely excited to start Dark Return! I really loved Dark Seeker, so obviously anyone would be excited to get their hands on the sequel! Unlike most sequels nowadays, Dark Seeker did not disappoint! It was action packed from the first page! Dark Return starts off with Janie kicking some daychildren butt. Janie's relationship with Kai can't get any better, but when someone from his past comes, there's bad news. It turns out this certain "someone" has decided to come to Baltimore and take Kai back. I definitely love it when there are new characters in books. Leah, the newcomer, was Kai's past lover. Leah is still that monster that Kai was, and she has decided that she wants to Turn Kai back so they can be in love again. It was very interesting to learn more about Kai's past before he Turned back into a human. Another interesting thing to read was how Kai and Janie's relationship developed. Janie was very worried about Leah, and not about her evil plans, but of her feelings with Kai. It was funny how she got jealous of Leah, even though Kai hated her guts now. Overall, it was a very interesting book! There was never a time when it got boring either. Like I said earlier, it was action packed and full of awesomeness. The ending killed me though. It is probably the biggest cliffhanger of cliffhangers in the world! (Does that even make sense?) Anyways, you get what I mean! I cannot wait for the third book! If you haven't read this series, you should totally get your on hands on the first book, Dark Seeker!

I really, really loved Dark Return. This series cannot get any better. It has so many twist and turns that really make you want to keep reading. You will not be able to read only one chapter at a time. You will get hooked from page one. The characters are excellently executed and do not differ from how they acted in book one. Taryn did an amazing job and I could not have asked for more.

4.5 super stars! WooooooooooooooooooooooW! I just can't explain how much I liked this book. The first one was good but this one is scary good. I finished it a minute ago and I'm so excited, I want to jump and dance and bang my head against the wall because I'll have to wait until who-knows-when for book 3! As always, Taryn's writing style left me speechless. It's fluent, fast paced, entertaining and fun. Also the characters are well developed and we have a very interesting addition, that apparently will be also in book 3. I love the fact that we get to know more about  Kai's past life in a sort of flashbacks. This gave him more realism. He is still beyond sexy and cocky and I love him for that but now he also is easier to relate to. Kai and Janie's dinamism while they are together is stunning. Kick ass couple! Tania, what a great character and I love her being a badass vampire leader as well as a fashion lover lol.  Janie improved a lot, she was way better in this book than the previous one.  The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because the love story here is not as strong as in the first instalment. The end was utterly amazing! A super huge cliffhanger!  When I reached the end I was thinking like: What??? is this already over?!?!??! It was too short!

I really enjoyed Dark Seeker so I've been really looking forward to Dark Return for quite some time. My expectations were definitely met and Dark Return was a great sequel. Janie is one of my favorite female characters because she's tough. She's a Seeker and hunts down Daychildren. She can take care of herself and she doesn't let herself get walked all over. However I liked that there was a lot more Kai in this book. I really liked learning more about Kai's past and I enjoyed the flashbacks. Kai did annoy me at times because of his choices but it's kind of difficult to ever hate Kai. The plot jumps rights in from the first page which I really loved. However I found myself having to go back to Dark Seeker after a few pages to get a refresher because I read it about a year ago. There is a lot of action in this book which is one of the reasons why I enjoyed the first book so much. The plot does get rushed at some places though and I did wish that moments lasted a bit longer. I honestly wasn't sure what to expect when I first picked up Dark Return but Browning definitely surprised me at some moments. The last few chapters especially left me on the edge of my seat. I will now be anxiously anticipating the next book. Overall Dark Return makes a great and exciting sequel. I strongly recommend this series, the books are quick and action-packed reads with tough characters.
