My Personal Review for Unholy Alliance by DN Simmons

The final volume in one of my favorite series is here. This continues where The Lion's Den left off and I can honestly say the twists and turns in this story left me breathless. Get ready for Unholy Alliance.

My Rating for Unholy Alliance: 5 Stars and series recommendation

The final chapter is here and in this story, the supernatural world is thrown into tailspin as a new threat emerges that threaten not just the supernatural world but also the human world as well. New alliances will be made, old alliances will be broken and the world, in all intents and purposes, will change forever in the end. For this time, a loved one finds themselves at death’s door and it is a race against the clock to find a cure. Will they be in time or will they be too late to save the one they love?

Author D. N. Simmons is a writer that will thrill you, chill you and take you in directions that leaves you on the edge of your seat with her entire The Knights of Darkness Chronicles series.  From the first book, you are thrust in a world where supernaturals and humans live side by side, uneasy allies and laws that 'protect' them in the human world. But things have been slowly changing and in this final volume, we finally see the after effects of Warren and Matthew coming out as supernaturals, the fight for survival and a threat that will chill you to the bone as humans find out what happens when you push a supernatural race to the corner. This time, the reader will discover old alliances are broken, new alliances are made and some major players are introduced to thrill you until the very end. The story flows smoothly, writing is tight and the characters evolve to the point where it felt like they could walk off the pages and into your living room.

Author D. N. Simmon’s The Knights of the Darkness Chronicles have had me spellbound from the very first book, Desires Unleashed. With the right amount of sizzling passion, adventure, mystery and more, this is an author who delivers with each book one wild roller coaster of a ride from start to finish. In this final volume in her beloved series, we find Darian, Xavier, Natasha and all their friends find themselves racing against the clock as a new threat to not just their world but to the entire world-human and supernatural. This time the threat attacks someone close to them and they will do anything they have to in order to find a cure. Defeat is not an option. I loved how this author introduces the new main players such as the Vampire Fonts. Very powerful, the original vampires and the new threat that face them. She ties it up nicely in Darian, Xavier and their friends story-line as we find out what has happened since book five, The Lion’s Den and it is one full of action, mystery and emotional ups and downs. This is an author who knows how to let her characters shine within the pages of this addicting series. 

I laughed, cried, sighed and cheered throughout Unholy Alliance and though there are a few new characters that just made me want to smack them into next year, they evened things out nicely. If you love a kick butt series with intriguing characters, some very sexy sex scenes and story lines that leave you gasping for air, then you need to get this series immediately. I do caution you that if you do not like bisexual/gay story lines then you may not like this but I do urge you to give it a is that good. Run-Don’t Walk-to grab this entire series and fall in love with the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles. You won’t be disappointed.

The Knights of the Darkness Chronicles Series is:

Experience the heart-pounding thrill of the chase in this electrifying page-turner as you uncover the mystery behind the series of gruesome killings that have been terrorizing the citizens of Chicago.  

When a grisly decapitated corpse pops up on a Chicago Street,
drained of blood, the highly-trained, government-funded special police force assigned two of their best detectives to the case. S.U.I.T. Detectives Warren Davis and Matthew Eric delve deep into their investigation to discover just who or what is leaving mutilated bodies in public places. They soon realize that the killer or killers is one step ahead of them and if they are going to stop the menace before another innocent human is viciously attack, they are going to need help.  

Natasha Hemingway liked her life just the way it was... normal
and supernatural-free. The vampires and shape-shifters were just where she wanted them to be--far away from her. All was going well until an unfortunate accident landed her in the hospital. It was then that she discovered she had an ability that could help her save countless lives. All of a sudden, she finds herself thrust into the dangerous and alluring world of the supernatural and into the arms of two very sexy and deadly vampires. 

The Guilty Innocent is the second novel in the edgy, action-packed, sexually-charged, Knights of the Darkness Chronicles. In this installment, Darian, the gorgeous, charismatic and charming master vampire of Chicago is framed for a crime he didn't commit, but why? His lover, Xavier, Natasha and a few others must travel halfway across the world to find out who and why before time runs out and all hell breaks loose! Original, sexy and gritty, the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles will suck you in and take you for a ride you won't forget!

It's Hunting Season...

A group of hunters have set their sights on a new type of prey...supernaturals.

Darian, Elise and Xander must join together to stop them before it's too late.

In this installment, be prepared for the ultimate supernatural adventure!

It's no holds barred in this tale and there's going to be hell to pay! A single orchestrated attack initiates a hunt unlike Darian and his friends have ever encountered. You really don't want to miss out. The ante has been upped and they are out for blood!

Darian, Elise and Xander have been through very rough times in the past, but nothing has prepared them for the menace that is causing all kinds of havoc in their territory this time around. Chicago is at the mercy, or lack thereof, of a ruthless gang of supernaturals who seem to take extreme pleasure in other people's pain. In this game of cat and mouse, there's no way to tell who's the predator and who's the prey.
