Mastering Darkness

Book 1, A Forest of Darkness - A Forest of Darkness Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The gruesome duties of being the Master Vampire of the Atlanta territory are enough to tempt Anthony into turning his emotions off for good and becoming the monster he sees in the mirror, once and for all. But a flirtatious chance meeting with a beautiful human shocks his heart into remembering sensations he thought he’d long lost the ability to experience. Oblivious to the supernatural world existing in the shadows all around her, Kaia has secrets of her own, though, like why she’s the only human living at Wild Woods, home to Anthony’s bitter foe, Ethan.

As family responsibilities keep Anthony tied to a life of violence, and Ethan’s taunting threats finally step over the line, Kaia becomes Anthony’s beacon of light in his otherwise dark world. But is her love for real, or just a ploy to tear his world apart?

Praise for the Forest of Darkness Series:

Book 1, Mastering Darkness

"...Just when a reader thinks they've read all that paranormal has to offer, along comes a refreshing new spin! Fans will not only devour this anchoring novel, but will be left wanting more! With well-rounded, three-dimensional characters, the author draws the reader into a world where both vampire and shifter co-exist in an uncommon hierarchy. The author also does a unique job in showing the hero's internal turmoil and conflict. Between past relationship fails, and the high-pressure demands that come with being a leader, many will find themselves relating to his struggle. ...Readers looking for their next paranormal,mystery, romance book look no further!" -Reviewed by Stephanie Lodes for InD'tale Magazine

Book 2, Abandoned Darkness

"The secret world of supernatural beings living on the edges of Atlanta is brilliantly developed... Sebastian's attraction to Jade, a reluctant shape shifting jaguar, blossoms into the beginnings of a relationship, but with his past and position as Alpha Wolf, Jade is just not sure if she can accept everything that may be involved. In the meantime, the Family is changing... Clear, smooth writing, intense action, and a wide range of emotions keep you turning the pages... This is a great read that you can only be thrilled by and will make you want to continue with the next volume." -Reviewed By Melinda Hills for Readers' Favorite

Book 3, Resisting Darkness

"Yes! Third time is a charm! ...Depth, intrigue, mystery and love... all of them combined in this great tale. Ethan can't make heads or tails of what he wants to do more and beauty with an attitude only seems to make it worse! From beginning to end, an eventful story chocked full of "eye-openers", "wait and sees", then, that "can't wait" feeling! Awesome job and thank you for the privilege to read it." -Reviewed by JSDaniMine for Reading Alley

I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review.

I was instantly pulled into this book and couldn't put it down till it was finished. The battle between fear and love in both Anthony and Kaia was enthralling and only made me yearn for more of them.
