Gideon hated himself so much I m glad Lily whipped him into shape Side note poor Drew And Elijah for that matter Elijah is my favorite in this series This is the second time I m reading them On to book three. I knew giving this series a chance was good idea I really want to give it like 3 3 4 stars This was much better than the first The were still quite a few eye roll inducing moments but they were fewer and further between than the fist I figured out what my problem with her writing is She gives the same details overand overand over again Its same soul tearing intense overwhelming feeling from the hero and heroin And the characters aren t that different from each other Quinn and I knew giving this series a chance was good idea I really want to give it like 3 3 4 stars This was much better than

person with different histories, looks, and abilities And its the same with Grace and Lily I did like Gideon and Lily better as a couple though I dunno every series I ve read I ve never really liked the first couple With exception of Wrath and Beth from BDB Im excited the read the next one With Elijah half crazy it should provide a change in pace as far as characters go I know the plot will be

book From the first chapter, I was successfully hooked and absorbed into the plot and the characters I knew immediatley that I would love it.We are immediately introduced to Lily, an intelligent professor who is being held hostage Throughout the whole of Lily s remarkable journey of discovery, love and need for revenge, we are allowed to witness her fears, her logic and her desires All of which are shared and developed through beautifully crafted writing Darkness Seduced is such a passionate book From the first chapter, I was successfully hooked and absorbed into the plot and the characters I knew immediatley that I would love it.We are immediately introduced to Lily, an intelligent professor who is being held hostage Throughout the whole of Lily s remarkable journey of discovery, love and need for revenge, we are allowed to witness her fears, her logic and her desires All of which are shared and developed through beautifully crafted writing, amazing imagery and a well constructed narrative.What I really liked about Darkness Seduced, was how Stephanie Rowe enables us to see both points of view of the main protagonists, Lily and the gorgeous Gideon.When Gideon enters Lily s life, he immediately is thrown by his overwhelming desire and need to protect her sigh His reaction to Lily, not only at the beginning of the book but throughout, is so lovely to read The passion behind his words, his actions and the passion he hides away in his heart, develops beautifully Stephanie Rowe very effectively allows her readers to bond with her characters, which is an amazing feat considering the genre and nature of the novel She shapes her characters so well that her characters come to life making them so very realsitic.As the novel progresses, there are times that the action slows down a little allowing us to glimpse different sides of Lily and Gideon I really liked that we have the opportunity to see many sides to Lily and Gideon their humour, their fears, their ambitions.There were many times that I laughed out loud and several times that I had to concentrate really hard so that I wouldn t cry Admittedly, I m a wuss at times, especially when it comes to such tender, heart wrenching moments.The book was extremely passionate and fiery The scenes between Lily and Gideon sometimes made me need a cold shower before I could continue, but were not so graphic that I blushed when I was reading This book is a superb follow up, and I sincerely can not wait to read book 3.Bravo to Stephanie Rowe This is the 2nd book in the Order of the Blade series These, in my opinion, are not stand alone books This book picks up where the 1st one ended Lily Davenport has been kept prisoner and tortured for 2 years by Nate Tipton, a crazy Calydon warrior who was under the influence of the evil Ezekiel who has been imprisoned in a magical prison for over two thousand years and wants out Lily was a professor who was a renowned Calydon expert who wrote books and did seminars about the Calydon warriors This is the 2nd book in the Order of the Blade series These, in my opinion, are not stand alone books This book picks up where the 1st one ended Lily Davenport has been kept prisoner and tortured for 2 years by Nate Tipton, a crazy Calydon warrior who was under the influence of the evil Ezekiel who has been imprisoned in a magical prison for over two thousand years and wants out Lily was a professor who was a renowned Calydon expert who wrote books and did seminars about the Calydon warriors who she despised One warrior in particular she hated the most Gideon Roarke When Lily s grandfather went rouge Gideon had to kill him and also his wife All of this was done in front of their son and daughter Year s later Lily brother who was also a Calydon died in the crossover Lily has always blamed Gideon for the destruction of her family But Lily also has a tie to the Calydon warriors that she cannot break She is a Satinka Satinka s have earth magic and there magic seeks out a Calydon who is worthy of her Lily is a extremely powerful Satinka and her magic test all Calydon warriors she comes in contact with to see if he is the one Her magic when given to a Calydon warrior makes that warrior evenpowerful After not hearing or seeing anyone for days while locked in a basement a rogue Calydon breaks down the door As Lily tries to escape she is rescued by Gideon but as she doesn t trust any Calydon s and while Gideon is fighting off manyrogue Calydon s she escapes But Gideon catches up with her again and saves her fromwarriors trying to kidnap her Gideon Roarke is known to be the most fearless warrior who is stone cold when it comes to emotions, that even when he watched his sheva being killed in front of him 500 hundred years ago it didn t affect him We find this to not be true His internal struggle with his emotions when he first meets Lily confuses him He has already met his sheva he shouldn t be having the feelings he is for her But Lily with all her knowledge of the Calaydon warriors knows that she is his sheva This is a blow to both of them as Lily has sworn to hate Gideon and Gideon doesn t understand how he could have a 2nd sheva and doesn t want to go through losing one again Even after finding out that Gideon was the one she had sworn to hate her whole life she realizes that she is not only Gideon s sheva but also his Satinka For most of this book we watch as both Gideon and Lily struggle with this They both had preconceived notions about each other and after they both tell the other about their tragic past they realize they were both wrong Gideon s internal struggle was very touching to watch As we know from the ending of the 1st book Frank Tully who was working with Nate had kidnapped Drew who was Dante s son We find out that Frank is really an illusionist like Ana and Grace and that he played a big role in what happened to Ana and Grace s parents Ana is confused by Frank and keeps going to him and when he ask her to get the knife with the ancient markings on it she does not knowing that Frank has evil intentions for her, Lily and Drew In a huge showdown at the end of the book we find out what Frank s true intentions are We also find out some answers to questions that we were left with in the first book but things are far from over We will have to wait for the 3rd book which is sure to be the best I rated this 4 stars because I like the series and I like Gideon, but like the first book, there were parts of the story that did not sit well with me I did like the twist on Lily s role as Satinka, but I didn t find myself loving her any than Grace For some reason, the guys definitely come acrosslikeable even though they are the ones that have demon essence in them Maybe that is because they essentially know that the women are destined for them so they know to a very large extent I rated this 4 stars because I like the series and I like Gideon, but like the first book, there were parts of the story that did not sit well with me I did like the twist on Lily s role as Satinka, but I didn t find myself loving her any than Grace For some reason, the guys definitely come acrosslikeable even though they are the ones that have demon essence in them Maybe that is because they essentially know that the women are destined for them so they know to a very large extent it is inevitable whereas the women fight it The other thing is that Gideon is supposed to be really strong, but comes across very emotional at timesand yes, I get that he is an empath and that part of his lure is he like Quinn shut down their emotions to do what they had to do in killing innocents, but deep down he does care The scene with her parents at the end really bothers me and I struggle with this because I know the point was to give him that sense of really wanting to belong, but it came across as too desperate for me However, at the end, I ll continue to read the series since I do want to see how it ends and I want to see the other characters find their mates too I hate to say it but this one was even worse than the first one I sincerely could not wait for this book to be over Again, all I m going to say is that I am incredibly over an MC who instantly has to ravage the the heroine because of some psychic connection How about developing a love story that even if it s meant to be there sthan five minutes before they re having the most explosive and best sex ever I wouldn t continue to read this series. Immortal warrior Gideon Roarke made an oath five hundred years ago to the woman who died for him The ancient Calydon is ruthless in his quest to honor that promise, even if it means risking everything by teaming up with the one woman who will either destroy him, or finally bring redemption to his blackened, hardened soul After escaping from a two year imprisonment at the hands of a madman, the only thing Lily Davenport wants is to go home and reclaim her life Unfortunately for Lily, standing between her and that goal is a sensual, demanding protector whose dangerous seduction threatens to claim her lifeand her soul The Calydons Destiny The Calydons are a race of ancient immortals cursed with a dark side Each Calydon is destined to meet his soul mate, to be so drawn to her that he is unable to resist bonding with her through the rituals of his race, but their destiny is to destroy each other and all they care about the moment their bond is complete Although the Order of the Blade is a connected series, all books can be read as stand alones and in any order Books in the Order of the Blade series Darkness Awakened Book One , Darkness Seduced Book Two , Darkness Surrendered Book Three , Forever in Darkness Book Four , Darkness Reborn Book Five , Darkness Arisen Book Six , Darkness Unleashed Book Seven , Inferno of Darkness Book Eight , Darkness Possessed Book Nine , Shadows of Darkness Book Ten , Hunt the Darkness Book Eleven ✫ Fisica 1 - Principios y Problemas Books ✭ Author Paul W.
