When I started reading this book, it came back to me again, the question I had when I first started reading this series: Why can't they just plug the "barrier" with mortar and concrete? Or a boatload of TNT! Looked effective enough when Kolar blew up that "barrier" section at the lava caves... But then again if they do that, we won't need Paladins to defend our world and then we won't have a story!! That is one logic flaw in the world building which I chose to ignore while reading this series. However, it is starting to nag me now. I like it better if the world building does not have gaping flaws staring right back at me like that. And another thing, it is also starting to read like same old, same old. I love the world of the Paladins, mind, just wish that this book didn't have the feel of "same old, same old" kinda thing. And I sure do like the man-candy on the cover!! The story telling is the same masterpiece quality so the story flowed well and the book read realtively fast. Despite this being Book 8 in the series, there is enough info there so that a reader who is new to the series can keep up and understand the story, fine. So I think this book can be read on it's own, though I do not suggest it because it mentions characters and events from previous books which will spoil the previous books for a reader if planning to read them after this book. Which you will want to read because this author has such a compelling author's voice. The ending is another HEA and am happy. Overall, I enjoyed this book and would give it a 4 out of 5.

Reggie Morrison has been after the mysterious hacker, Nightwalker, for months but she never expected him to track her down and show up on her doorstep. D.J. Clayborne loves a good challenge and when the Regent's servers are breached he knows he needs to fix it before anyone finds out. We've gotten little hints throughout the series that D.J. has been cyber-battling another hacker so I was excited to read The Darkness Beyond and see what type of woman could get D.J. so tangled up. I liked D.J. and Reggie together but I would have liked a bit more on D.J.'s past. Like most of the Paladins from the previous books he's had a less than ideal upbringing and this has shaped how he views the world. D.J. has the typical honor, strength, and protective instinct found in all Paladins but this also means that he felt a little too much like all the previous heroes in the series -- other than saying whatever comes into his head. He does have a roguish charm that comes through but a lot of the book is Reggie and D.J. trying to survive in Kalithia so he's not as easy going. I did feel that Reggie makes a great match for D.J. because she understands the thrill of hacking and she's tough enough to handle the world he lives in. I was hoping we would see more of the Kalith world since the majority of the book takes place there, however, it's all spent hiking across land with Reggie and her kidnappers. Though we don't see any towns we do get to see Berk ( Redeemed in Darkness ) and some of his men; I'd love to get his story one day since he seems to be the only ally on that side of the barrier.

I liked that this plot followed a bit of a different pattern the the previous books. But at some point the plot did get a bit slow. It picked back up after awhile but the ending was abrupt, like several others in the series. Good but not great.

The Paladins' resident computer expert, D.J. Clayborne, has no equal in terms of hacking skills and cyber security...at least that's what he thinks until Regina Morrison manages to get past his security measures and download secret Paladin documents. Things heat up when D.J. takes their interactions out of cyberspace and moves them into the real world by showing up on Reggie's doorstep with the intention of shutting down her forays into his world. But Reggie's investigation into the Paladins has drawn unwanted attention to her, and when she's kidnapped by those looking to exploit her skills, D.J. must risk everything to get her back. ~~~~~Alexis Morgan's latest addition to the Paladin Series is an enjoyable read. While not as suspenseful or gripping as some of her earlier works, this was a solid effort and well worth reading.
