|Janet’s review: In Darkness Awakened, the first book of The Order of the Blade, we were introduced to a group of immortal warriors, known as the Calydons, cursed with a dark side. Each Warrior is destined to meet his soul mate, so drawn to her, that he is unable to resist bonding with her…..but the lover’s destiny is to destroy each other and everything they care about, the moment the bond is complete.
In Darkness Reborn, we finally get to read Kane’s story. The mysterious warrior with Talismans carved all over his body and no memory of who he is. Kane is searching for his past and he has found his answers with Sarah, his soul mate. But Sarah has her own secrets and wounded history. These two tortured souls must learn to trust each other before they destroy themselves and the rest of the world.
The connection between Kane and Sarah is instant and strong. The scenes between these two were extremely passionate and fiery.
Take a deep breath before you start reading, because I found myself actually holding my breath several times throughout the story. Stephanie takes us for a emotional ride from the first page till the very end. It’s was a roller coaster ride of emotions, action and non-stop adventure. There were a few times I even caught myself yelling at the pages. And I loved that there was just a touch of humor to help ease the high volume of tension that was bouncing from the pages.
Darkness Reborn is an absolute AMAZING read!!!
Cindy’s review Kane Santiago was the Calydon warrior that had ancient designs carved into his skin. He had no idea where they came from or even where he came from. For 500 years he had been a Calydon warrior after being found in the gutter by Dante but he still had a huge emptiness inside him like he was void a soul. He fought for the Order’s mission even though he felt he had no moral center.
Sarah Burns is an angel. They are very rare and not many left. She grew up in a village called Akara where as a child a black specter who haunted the woods called Los Muerte wiped out all of the angels from the village but a very few six hundred years ago. Sarah fears from the beginning that Kane might be Los Muerte but she also knows that she is his sheva and they have already completed part of the bond.
As the story goes on we find out Kane’s history and who is behind the creation of Los Muerte. This person is making all of the just turned warriors turn into killing machines and he wants all of the angels and Calydon warriors wiped off the face of the earth.
Can Kane find his true self again – the man with a soul or will he forever be doomed to be a soulless demon called Los Muerte.
