Review: Beyond the Darkness (Darkness #3) by Katie Reus

Now that she has her freedom, she’s not giving it up. 

Dragon shifter Keelin Petronilla spent centuries in forced hibernation dreaming of one thing: freedom. Now she’s living life on her terms—she’s ditched her clan for an unruly wolf pack, she tends bar for a half-demon, and she’s loving it…until a powerful supernatural being targets her. She intends to handle the mysterious attacks on her own…without the help of dragon Alpha Bran Devlin. Sure, he’s sexy in that hot, scowling possessive way, but Keelin wants to live her own life in her own way.

Now that he’s found his mate, he’s not letting her go.

Former black ops agent Bran Devlin is a born dragon Alpha and leader of a fierce clan. Getting mated was never part of his plan—until a feisty dragon princess gets under his skin in a big way. The hell of it is, she doesn’t want a mate; she just wants to have a good time. He plays along, but when a dark and powerful being marks her for death, he’s determined to stay by her side in spite of her protests. Now that he’s found his mate, he means to keep her safe no matter what the cost…even if he has to risk it all. 

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Paranormal romance readers unite!  Katie Reus has once again delivered an amazing tale of love and acceptance regardless of whom or what you are!  In this her third book in her darkness series, Ms. Reus shows that it doesn’t matter if you are a shifter, vampire or any other paranormal everyone is united as one family in the fight against evil. 

Dragon shifters are secretive, powerful beings that have kept stayed hidden from the beginning of time.  They are strong enough that few beings can best them.  When Bran saved Keelin in the second book of this series he knew that she was his mate.  As a powerful alpha male and the leader of his clan, he will do whatever he has to, to make her his.  Even if she is not ready to accept him as her mate, he will protect and care for her until she recognizes they are mates.

Freedom is something that Keelin Petronilla has never known.  She has been controlled, treated like a weak female and wrapped in a protective blanket all her life.  When she awaked from hibernation, it is a brave new world that she finds herself in, a world of modern wonders and new freedom for women like herself.  Keelin is not prepared to give up this chance to be independent, regardless of how Bran Devlin makes her feel.  However when strange attacks start and dragon shifters disappear, she may not be able to keep him at a distance.  That alpha male dominance will not let Bran stay away from his mate.

Evil has no feelings of remorse or conscience!  It wants what it wants and will have it!
