One woman, the fate of the world in her unknowing hands. One man, sworn to destroy her. A love so strong it defies nature. In a world of obsession, deception and betrayal, the line between good and evil fades, but one truth remains absolute. Darkness must fall.
For centuries, werewolf, Dominic Ridolfi, has battled the demons of the night, upholding the sacred pact to protect man from vampires. Yet when sent to destroy the long lost Cacciatori heiress, the vampire prophesied to free her kind from the curse of darkness, he finds himself reluctant to complete his task. The innocent beauty awakens his humanity and Dominic finds himself not in the role of assassin, but savior.
Swept away in a whirlwind romance, Kate loses herself in Dominic’s mysterious world of opulence and seduction. But Dominic has a secret. He knows the truth about Kate’s past, and her future, truths with the power to destroy them both. Only in her dreams does Kate sense the growing darkness within. Dominic saved her once, but can she save herself from the darkness within?
I’m a serious..SERIOUS sucker for paranormal romances, especially vampire/werewolf romances. Fall of Darkness was a fantastic paranormal romance. I LOVED the connection the Dominic and Kate had throughout the entire story. I was so mad at Dominic for awhile for not sharing the truth with Kate sooner. But really..who could blame him?! I’d want to get my hooks in real deep before I gave the blow that he had to give.
Kate is an amazing young woman who loves her family, friends, and her job as a nurse. She absolutely no idea that her birth parents were vampires and that she is EXTREMELY important to the world of vampires and werewolves. Kate has been having dreams but has no idea that they are telling her the future that comes but Dominic knows everything and he is keeping this secret from Kate. As Kate is slowly turning into a vampire, Dominic is struggling with committing the biggest betrayal against with werewolf family; falling for the vampire princess who he was sent to kill.
I really did love Dominic and Kate, they had such an amazing connection and Dominic treated her with such care and wanted all of her dreams to come true and worked hard to make the happen. As Kate finds out the truth and is thrust into life with her true family I found myself wavering on who I wanted Kate or as her true self, Katerina, to end up with someone else..GASP!! I know, I really struggled and felt like I was cheating on Dominic.
This is seriously a great paranormal romance read. I did find myself struggling with the changing POVs…it wasn’t that I didn’t like getting both of their views..I actually really LOVED it. For awhile, I had a hard time following the transition of who’s POV the story was being told from. At times, it would take a few paragraphs for me to realize who it was. This story brought a lot of aspects from all the other vampire romances I’ve read into one story.
I can’t wait for the second story in the series!!
