Review & Giveaway: Prowled Darkness by Carrie Ann Ryan
A Dante's Circle #7
Carrie Ann Ryan
Eliana Sawyer’s life was rocked from its foundation twice in as many years. She risked her heart and had it shattered into a thousand pieces when Malik left her with no warning. While she’d normally raise her chin and ignore the pain, she can’t forget what he gave her before he disappeared from her life.
Malik Ward is a prince amongst the lion shifters and knows that one day he will have to take a mate. Only, his people can never mate with humans. Under the mistaken impression that Eliana was only human, he forced himself to leave before they’d crossed a line and he broke his vow to his people. Now that he knows the truth about Eliana, however, it will take more than groveling to win back the one woman fated to be his.
While Eliana and Malik embark on a new sensuous path that might lead to disaster, the realms aren’t ready to allow the final lightning-struck human to be enveloped into their fold. The couple will have to combat those plotting against them, as well as the broken promises and heated emotions they share.
Warning: Contains a Leo with a bite that’s worse than his roar, a woman with one last chance at the life she’s always dreamt of, a flame that could extinguish with the wrong sacrifice, and the final journey in the bestselling Dante’s Circle series.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

There were times in a man’s life when he felt like he held the world in his hands. There were times where that man could conquer that world and know instinctively what to do with the life it held.This was not one of those times.Malik Ward wanted to throw up, even though he didn’t have a thing in his stomach. Or maybe yell at someone until he was so red in the face he couldn’t speak. Perhaps hit someone so he could feel bone smash against bone. Or maybe, just maybe, go down to his knees in front of the woman who carried his child and beg for forgiveness.As Malik was in line for the lion throne and a Ward, the latter wouldn’t be happening.Ever.If he were anything less than the lion he was, he’d have tucked his tail between his legs and walked out of the bar as quickly as he’d come in. But he wasn’t that kind of man, and now he had to face the consequences of his decisions.And what consequences they were.
I'm going to let you in on a secret. Before Prowled Darkness (not a fan of the title) I haven't read any of the Dante's Circle books.
What can I say, I read so much that somethings good authors take time to move into the rotation. I really glad that I was able to read Prowled Darkness. I loved the characters and the whole idea of the story line. I did feel the story was just a little bit short but that's a personal preference.
I'm glad the author didn't drag out any issues between Malik and Eliana. Instead she got right to their story. Which made for better moments between them.
The only problem I have with this story I really hate that I didn't read the others first. I have a feeling I would have enjoyed them. I'm going to have to try and read the whole series.
This is a good, fast paced story that you'll really enjoy.
If you've read Prowled Darkness or any other book by Carrie Ann Ryan I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
