Riley Poe has faced deadly challenges in the past and has been bitten by three powerful strigoi vampires which has given her amazing abilities that are getting stronger every day. Now, she has been recruited by the Worldwide Unexplained Phenomena, a group of paranormals, to help track down a group of fallen angels, known as the Black Fallen. With her vampire fiancé, Eli Dupre, by her side she travels to Edinburgh to begin her journey and learns that these fallen angels are more than she bargained for and runs the risk of losing everything in this new battle of good versus evil.
This is the fourth installment in the Dark Ink Chronicles and Elle Jasper is such an amazing and talented author. I have loved Riley Poe since reading Afterlight and I have enjoyed her transition from being a just mortal tattoo artist in Savannah, to this powerful woman with supernatural capabilities that grow stronger every day. I love her strong personality because she has come back from addiction to create a thriving business and help raise her younger brother, Seth, before she even met the Dupre family. Now she has been recruited by the WUP to help destroy the Black Fallen, a group of fallen angels engulfed in the darkest of magic, and this new evil threatens to destroy everything that she holds dear.
The secondary characters that were introduced in Black Fallen were a treat to read about because one of Riley’s new powers is that she can experience someone’s life just by touching them. I was fascinated by each new member and learning their stories on how they came to WUP, considering that it is now made up of vampires, werewolves and other beings. There were so many unanswered questions from this book that it makes me want the next book in this series tomorrow. Such a refreshing take on this unique paranormal world and I can’t wait to read book five which is due out next year.
After surviving life-threatening bites from three powerful strigoi vampires, tattoo artist Riley Poe has absorbed their powers and is stronger than ever. Just as she’s learning to harness her newfound abilities, she and her vampire guardian fiancé, Eli Dupré, agree to join the elite Worldwide Unexplained Phenomena team.
This task force, composed of vampires, druids, werewolves, and otherbeings, has been assigned to take down the Black Fallen, a powerful race of fallen angels consumed by the darkest magic. These dangerous creatures are searching for the ultimate source of power in Edinburgh, Scotland, and Riley will be the WUP team’s secret weapon to take them down. She must be careful, though, or their dark power could engulf her—and her heart, too....
