To touch a Dark One is death. 

To talk to an immortal is suicide. 

Yet, I've been marked by both. 

A Vampire. 

And the King of the immortals. 

My life is no longer my own. 

And now I know the truth, my life was never mine to begin with. 

It was theirs. 

It's always been theirs.

Rachel Van Dyken is an auto-buy author for me. I adore her stories and she keeps surprising me. With The Dark Ones she just blew my mind. I'm one of those readers who thought that had had enough of vampires and werewolves, but Rachel's supernatural creatures are as captivating as her stories.

I have to confess that the story, at first, was a bit confusing for me. I think I was as shocked and out of place as the main character, Genesis. And then the story started to make sense and everything fell into place. Genesis ends up in the supernatural world where the monster she's been taught to fear are the ones helping her and all her beliefs end up being a complete lie. 

There's a prophecy that will change everything in the supernatural world. Once in a while a human is called to test that theory and that time has come for Genesis. She thinks she's call to be a servant human, but what she's waiting for her is more dangerous than being a human among supernatural creatures. 

What I liked about this supernatural story is that the author knew how to put into words the sensations of being around supernatural beings, being in danger and what should feel like being one of them. All characters are well-built and have a role in the story, full of surprises and unexpected turns. In Rachel Van Dyken's story there's no black or white and I liked that she kept surprising us until the very end. So much that nearly the end I have a meltdown crisis when I read a specific scene. You'll understand me once you read the book.

I absolutely adore this story and I'm just waiting for more books to come. Being introduced to Rachel's supernatural world was a unique experience for a reader and I loved every single moment. That's why I highly recommend this read to all romance supernatural lovers. This is definitely a must read book!

The ARC was provided in exchange of an honest review. Participating in this tour does not affect my opinion in any way.

Rachel Van Dyken is the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestselling author of regency and contemporary romances. When she's not writing you can find her drinking coffee at Starbucks and plotting her next book while watching The Bachelor.

She keeps her home in Idaho with her Husband and their snoring Boxer, Sir Winston Churchill. She loves to hear from readers!
