Soul Scorched was one of the best books that I've read lately. It was simply amazing with characters that were vibrant and mesmerizing to easily pull the reader into every scene. Yet again, Donna Grant has delivered another brilliant story in the Dark Kings Series.
This novel features Warrick and Darcy, who had no small amount of drama and ended up being two of my favorite characters. Darcy was an incredibly strong heroine who wasn't afraid to stand up against the scariest challenge. And Warrick was sexy, sweet and protective. He was one hell of an alpha. Their connection was instantaneous and combustible. They both realized that it was something special, but mistakes, suspicions, Darcy's stubbornness and Warrick's commitment phobia played a big part throughout the story.
I was totally enthralled by this book. It had everything to keep me on my toes and more. The romance was steamy and sexy, with plenty of action, conflict and raw emotions. The writing was flawless and brilliant with multiple storylines and twists and turns that kept me guessing about what was going to happen next. It was fast paced, and the back and forth between the multiple storylines was smooth and seamless. Ms. Grant had me second guessing right up until the end about the general arc that has been a part of the series ever since the beginning. Truthfully, I still have some doubts about how it's going to play out between Con and Ulrik; and the secret identity of the rogue Dragon King.
This was a wonderful book and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. It will work fine as a standalone novel, but if you haven't read the other books in this series, then I strongly suggest that you do so just because they are all equally as fantastic. Soul Scorched is a must read that really should be given more than five stars!
