Review: The Dark Ones by Rachel Van Dyken

The Dark Ones BT Banner

Screen Shot 2015-03-27 at 12.53.05 AMTo touch a Dark One is death.
To talk to an immortal is suicide.
Yet, I’ve been marked by both.
A Vampire.
And the King of the immortals.
My life is no longer my own.
And now I know the truth, my life was never mine to begin with.
It was theirs.
It’s always been theirs.

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

I thought I’d never read a book with vampires in it ever again. I was wrong. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS ONE! The romance was so freaking good, ahhh all the feeeels!!!! I know I know, it was too soon bla bla bla, but I never complain about that happening. I LOVE love. I can’t explain the feeling this book gave me. It brought me back to those feelings I got when I discovered paranormal books in high school.

Genesis has been training all her life to serve the dark ones. She was supposed to teach their children how to use technology. Kind of like a high class baby sitter. There was always a possibility that her number would be called, but she never really expected it to happen to her. When her number was called, everything she thought she knew was a lie. The immortals didn’t need her to teach their children anything about technology. They needed her for something else.

Genesis has been marked by the dark one, Cassius. Ethan then whisks her away and marks her in order to save her. Ethan hasn’t bonded with anyone in a long long time. Some painful events kept him from wanting to get too close to anyone else. He tried so hard not to care about Genesis, but he just couldn’t help himself. She was entirely lovable!

This book is very fast paced. I wanted to slow down while reading it. I never wanted it to end. It was just soooo good! That sneak peek at the end for the next book slayed me. It’s going to be torture waiting for it to come out. I may cry.
