The Dark Ones – Rachel van Dyken

To 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.

My review

This book was sitting at the bottom of my to read pile for months and I didn’t understand why again. Until I read the blurb again. Yep, sounds pretty dark and ominous. But surprisingly the story isn’t that dark at all. It is actually kinda funny. Genesis has been brought up as a potential ‘employee’ for the Immortals. Since Immortals now rule the world, humans can be called to be of service. However, if you mess up or disobey, you end up dead. Or so Genesis has been taught all her life. Imagine her surprise when she is being called and ends up in a house with a male and female siren, a military werewolf and a broody vampire. She ends up watching the Lion King, with werewolf Mason, because he has never seen the movie. Of course there is a lot more to the story, like the feud between Ethan, the broody vampire and Cassius, the fallen archangel who both have marked Genesis.
But in all, the blurb doesn’t do the story justice .So, don’t hesitate to pick up this one and then go straight through to the other stories about the Immortals. Have fun! Four out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
