[ARC Review] - Deliver me From Darkness by Tes Hilaire
Author: Tes Hilaire
Series: Paladin Warriors
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: February 7, 2012
I received this book for review from Sourcebooks.
Summary: A STRANGER IN THE NIGHT...
He had once been a warrior of the Light, one of the revered Paladin. A protector. But now he lives in darkness, and the shadows are his sanctuary. Every day is a struggle to overcome the blood lust.
Especially the day Karissa shows up at his doorstep.
COMES KNOCKING ON THE DOOR
She is light and bright and everything beautiful—despite her scratches and torn clothes. Every creature of the night is after her. So is every male Paladin. Because Karissa is the last female of their kind. But she is his. He may not have a soul, but he can't deny his heart.
Thoughts: Roland is a former Paladin, a warrior of light. Now he mostly lives in shadows - treasuring his peace. That peace is disturbed when his friend arrives on his doorstep with Karissa - the last female Paladin. She and the temptation will be a test.
A good, satisfying read. This is only my second time reading about Paladins. This premises seems a bit different than the other series I'm familiar with, but that is a big plus. Deliver Me from Darkness was a captivating read. Temptation and redemption play a big role. For me the story moved a long a bit slow. But it's still a worthy read. I thought Karissa and Roland were great characters. Their growing relationship is what kept me reading. Angel and vampire fans should definitely check this one out.
Score: 3 Stars
