The Dark Protectors series has been a favorite for a few years now. Last year began the new season in the series introducing The Seven, a new enemy and a new generation of Protectors. I was thrilled with Vampire’s Faith and eager to press forward into the long-awaited book for Logan Kyllwood.
Demon’s Mercy is the ninth installment of the series and doesn’t make for a good place to jump in with its direct connection to the book before it, but in a pinch a new reader could get by.
The Seven and the new enemy Kurjans has been introduced, but now a new race has entered the conflict with their own take on the fate of all things- the fae. Logan discovers this when a certain fae beauty attempts to kidnap him to save his life from her own people who think killing The Seven is the answer to altering a catastrophe they see on the horizon. This starts Logan and Mercy on an action-packed adventure to get his brother back and deal with the fae while discovering what they know so they can share it with the allies. Oh, and dealing with the mischievous and quite capable Mercy who now has her own complications in the form of a huge, muscled vampire-demon making it difficult to hold to loyalty to her fae race and their way of doing things. She enjoys their dust ups and fighting with him, but the attraction can’t go anywhere because she’s promised, right?
The author’s books are always a treat. I enjoy the fantastic action scenes, teasing and sizzling romances, and the good chemistry not just in the romance but the group of ‘Protectors’ like with Logan and Garrett. Logan was introduced in the earlier part of the series when his older brother got his story and then popped in often enough. I impatiently waited for him and his best bud Garrett to get their stories and now, here we are.
I loved Mercy for Logan. She starts out all starchy and prim and sure of her racial superiority only to face a guy who is not all that impressed and has done his time scrapping and fighting to earn his self-confidence. Mercy is no wilting flower and I love that she has gifts to make her capable of standing beside Logan in the fight with the evil Immortals and stand up to his alpha nature. Meanwhile, little Hope is still visiting in her dreams with someone her whole family would consider the enemy and she knows will help her bring an end to the conflict.
This book read so swiftly. I intended to read a few chapters and ended up devouring it in two sittings. The pace was swift, but steady and easy reading. Hot romance and action will do that. Now, besides Garrett, I totally want Sam’s book after what we learned about him. Really loving this new season of the series and glad the author kept writing them. Paranormal Romance fans who enjoy a variety of paranormals including vampires, demons, witches, and now fae should give this book/series a look-see.
My thanks to Lyrical Press for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
