Fav Quote:

“I never stopped loving you, Finn. Even when I wanted to hate you, I just couldn’t. Not truly. You stole part of my heart, damn you. And I don’t want it back. I don’t care what we have to face as long as we have each other’s backs." - Lyra
This book was soooooo intense!!!
 
Lyra is desperate and the only one who can help her, gave up on her long ago. Or so she thought...

Finn, the Alpha and leader of his pack, has never regretted a decision as much as he regrets giving up on Lyra. He let her go once, thinking he was protecting her but he's not willing to make the same mistake again. Lyra is back asking for his help in order to save her hybrid daughter, Vega, and Finn wants nothing more than to please her. What Finn doesn't realize is that Lyra is hiding something and once he learns her secrets everything is going to change...

Finn will do anything to protect what's his and he's ready to kill anyone to protect his family...

I really really liked Darkness Awakened ! Ever since I saw the it at Katie's website I knew I was going to love it (how could I not since it's written by Katie Reus?). The story was amazing and it had a nice flow. I loved the way the author chose to present us the events in the book. We would get a taste of their past and things would get back to the time being so naturally.

What I loved the most though, were the secondary characters. Vega, of course, wasn't like your average teen, strong, stubborn and determined to find what she's looking for . Gabriel, Finn's guardian and friend was such a loyal and protective friend. And last but not least, Drake, the dragon (loved him) and Victoria, a pack member and a healer, were such an incredible combination. Hope we see more of them (pls pls pls)!!!

All in all, I totally liked this book and I highly recommend.

Synopsis:

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.
