Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Get ready for book two of this dark, dark, trilogy, appropriately named Dark Paradise. Dark Sacrifice by Angie Sandro is a trip back into the world she has created, full of danger, mystery, bloodshed and action, kick in a little tension between two of the characters and expect to be riveted to each and every page. We are returned to the dark, superstitious and gritty bayou country where the practice of the “arts” can become a deadly game of cat and mouse as fear and old beliefs outweigh proof and common sense. Mala and Landry must work through their differences and learn to become a team, trust in one another and have each other’s back. Will it result in deeper feelings being exposed as their pasts are bared? Can they even be friends again or not when this is all over? Will they learn to control their new and growing powers? Page one punches you in the gut, hooking you completely as Angie Santo plunges us immediately into this tale. She is able to hold you captive with her words, detailed descriptions and life-like characters as her gift for telling a scary tale shines even brighter in this addition to the series. Sit back and let both the characters and the plot steer you through the ride of your life, as you hope you are able to make it out rattled, but unscathed, it’s that good, although Aunt Magnolia still scared the heck out of me, I think she has a hidden side we haven’t seen yet!
Received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. HOLY WOW! I LOVE this series!!! “Dark Sacrifice” is perfection. What an amazing follow-up in a truly fantastic series. If this is the future of NA/Paranormal Romance I am SO in. The book was scary, funny at times, and sexy as hell. That scene in the hotel… Still getting a little tingly just thinking about it! I am DYING for it to be September already so I can read the final book in the series. If the publisher wants to send me another ARC I will not say no… :) #JustSaying #SorryNotSorry Angie Sandro is a writer to watch. Add the Dark Paradise series to your TBR shelf and keep track of her. I have no doubt she’s gonna be HUGE. P.S. The comparison to “Beautiful Creatures” doesn’t do this series justice. It’s SO much better. Characters, plot, writing, etc. Superior in every way.
