Darkness Awakened (Darkness #1)- Katie Reus

Years ago he ended things between them to protect her…

As leader of one of the fiercest werewolf packs in the south, Finn Stavros is in full battle mode 24/7. He has no choice–he’s one of the few beings strong enough to fight the Akkadian demons, whose mysterious escape from hell threatens the entire world. With the battle turning bloodier by the second, Finn is ready for anything…until his vampire long lost love shows up on his doorstep in desperate need of his help, sending his heart into a tailspin. He agrees to help her, unaware that she carries a shocking secret that will turn his life upside down.

This time, he’s not letting her go…

Vampire Lyra Marius curses the day she met Finn. The ruthless werewolf promised to love her forever, but he rejected her instead–before she could share her life altering news. Pregnant, kicked out of her coven, and cast aside by the love of her life, Lyra struggled to raise their rare shifter-vampire daughter Vega alone among humans. When the 16-year-old is kidnapped and used to fulfill a frightening prophecy, Lyra swallows her pride and turns to Finn for help. But how long can she fight her feelings for him and keep him from guessing the truth about who Vega really is? As they race against the clock to save their daughter, they must defeat the lethal threat imposed by demons infiltrating the human world and a hell gate that could not only reveal their existence to mankind, but destroy the world in the process.

This book ticked all the boxes for me Paranormal romance, hot sexy alpha male, feisty female vampire.

In a society where vampire and werewolves are enemies Finn knew that he and Lyra couldn’t do anything to make their love last, the odds were against them Vampires and werewolves dont mix. Finn let Lyra go feeling that was the only way to keep her safe, not knowing she was carrying his daughter. When Vega, Finn and Lyra’s daughter is kidnapped, Lyra knows the only one that can help her is Finn.

Katie Reus has a wonderful writing style she draws you into this fantastic story with its twist and turns, its action packed plot is romantic and sensual full of great chemistry and sexy moments. A love that last over 16 years of being apart is just meant to be.

I loved this book and all the characters were well developed, you cannot help but fall for the hero and heroine they are just so like able. There past brings them together again where they should be and gives Lyra and Finn another chance at love.

The plot is fast paced but a very easy read for a paranormal type book, some writers i find over complicate the paranormal aspect of stories which just makes them down right confusing, but Katie gives you just enough paranormal to carry the story well, it pulls you into this other world for a great escape.

I have totally fallen in love with this new world of Vampires, Werewolves and Dragon shifters, i really want to find out more about the characters in this series, especially Drake! i think the connection between him and Victoria could be scorching HOT!

This is a fantastic introduction into a new series and i loved every word and cannot wait to read more from this series and author.
