NA Review My Thoughts

Dark Embrace is actually the 4th book in the Dark Paradise series by Angie Sandro. I actually had no idea because the cover looks totally different than the previous three covers (which I like a lot better than this one) and the first three books features a character named Mala. All of them featured Mala to my knowledge and Dark Embrace features her cousin Dena. I have not read the first three books in this series, and I was fine reading this one. There were a few moments where I wish I had a little more back story, but Dark Embrace can stand on its’ own. It felt more like a companion series rather than a continuation to the Dark Paradise series. But either way, I absolutely loved Dark Embrace!

Dena is a great character. She is stubborn as a mule, but she is caring, compassionate and determined. And I appreciated how skeptical and distrustful she was of people. because holy cow, everyone in this book should not be trusted. Not even her. It is really hard for me to describe Dark Embrace, other than to say it is one fantastic paranormal mystery of a ride. You have this mysterious dark shadow that Dena seems to be the only one to see. And he seems to be kind of obsessed with her. And then you have all the people that seem to die around her. And then you have all the people trying to kill her. And it just keeps building. You learn one thing and three more mysteries and questions pop up.

Angie Sandro did a really fabulous job telling Dena’s story. I loved how everything was presented and how all the events unfolded. I so badly wanted something specific to happen in this book and it did. And when it did, I was whooping for joy. I want to see more Dena stories. I hope this is not the end for her. Now that she knows what is going on, I want her to get her romance on. Even though there was plenty of romantic action in this book, which I absolutely loved, I hope that Dena takes a little more time in the next book to enjoy her relationship.

Bottom line? If you are a fan of mysteries and paranormal romances, Dark Embrace is a book that you cannot miss out on.
