Touch of Darkness (Darkness Chosen Series #2) by Christina Dodd

From New York Times bestselling author Christina Dodd comes the second book of Darkness Chosen, a seductive series about an ancient, dark evil that lives in the modern world...

Handsome, powerful Rurik Wilder battles darkness—the darkness without and the darkness within. He possesses the power to transform himself into a fierce bird of prey, and that gift has caused death and destruction. At last he is offered the chance to redeem himself and break the evil pact that has held his family in thrall for centuries. Only one woman stands in his way—Tasya Hunnicutt, a writer determined to wreak revenge on the assassins who murdered her family. Assassins, it’s been rumored, who have powers no human should ever possess...

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.

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!

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 should know better with Dodd. She has interesting plots, but I stopped reading her historicals a long time ago, because the actions of the so-called hero would be so unacceptable that I'd be thrown out of the book. (And then throw it across the room.) It's a pity because she has interesting characters and plots. I started this paranormal series because her non-paranormal contemporaries have been interesting. This book though has a scene that absolutely turned my stomach, and made me see the male character as a disgusting rapist who would be better castrated and dead. In the relevant scene they are on a train, pursued by bad guys, and he locks the door, start by "oiling her all over" while she's sleeping, to help him accomplish the deed, she says no several times, attempts to escape(!). I'm sorry, but no number of orgasms at the end can overcome that for me. I also find one of the premises of the multi book story arc offensive. Now, I'm an agnostic/atheist, but the premise is that God will allow the Devil to take the men's father's soul, when he has done no wrong, because of some promise made by an ancestor 1000 years ago. So they are battling the Devil for their father's soul. I just can't see any remotely Christian view of God as buying into this and I find it offensive. Which brings me to my final peeve - the McGuffins that are being retrieved are "icons" and the ethnic background is Russian, but even beyond my objections above to the religious elements of the conflict, there is no visible use of the differences between the Orthodox Catholic Church and the Roman Catholic church beyond the icons. It's just religious wallpaper. As I say, it's a pity, because apart from the fact that he's a rapist, the hero and heroine are interesting and the plot has some revealing bits that I like.
