I grew up as a prince...And lead the life of a King.There isn't anyone or anything that doesn't want me, that isn't attracted to me. They can't help it. And I sure as hell don't want them to. I live for their lust, I crave touch like an addiction, I make them beg on their knees for one, simple, caress.As a male siren it's my job to feed off emotion.And I was happy to do it...

    is the third book in the The Dark Ones Saga. You can absolutely read this as a stand-alone. However, be forewarned I was so enraptured by the characters in this fantastical world that I immediately purchased book one and book two so that I could soak in the entire spectrum of the characters and romance from the whole series.

    is the third book in the The Dark Ones Saga. You can absolutely read this as a stand-alone. However, be forewarned I was so enraptured by the characters in this fantastical world that I immediately purchased book one and book two so that I could soak in the entire spectrum of the characters and romance from the whole series.

    Alexander is a siren, and his beauty acts as a magnet to everything and everyone in his presence. When the time has come for him to find his mate, he selects a human girl named Hope. When Hope seems strangely unaffected by his greatness, Alex amps up his magical aura and makes every effort to woo her into his bed. As the two finally come together, Alex recognizes who Hope truly is, and he must come to terms with the feelings he has for her. When Hope discovers the truth about her past, she clings to her new family (and Alex) to survive! When life and death are on the line, is love between a siren and a human enough?

    Told in multiple POV,

    is an absolute delight! Rachel Van Dyken has created a magical world with angels, vampires, wolfs, elves, spirits, and their human counterparts with ease! I was completely enraptured by the vibrant colors in this world. The intensity of the connection between these characters was quite addictive as the need for one's mate is imperative for survival. The passion is intense and the intrigue in the plot kept me on the edge of my seat the entire read.

    The Dark Ones Saga is a completely new series for me, so I am completely giddy over discovering another paranormal romance series to explore!

    was a perfect introduction to this world and as I stated earlier in my review, as soon as I finished reading I downloaded the first two books in the series on my Kindle. I highly recommend this series to paranormal romance fans and I look forward to reading more!

    Dark Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken is the third book in The Dark Ones series.

    The paranormal genre is by far one of the most interesting. And Dark Surrender had it all in spades. Angles, demons, vampire, werewolves, and elves, mingled, loved, and fought for each other.

    The main hero Alexander, the last remaining siren, pretty much sex on two legs, had to mate to achieve his fullest potential and power. Unfortunately or fortunately for him the choice came down to three humans.

    Dark Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken is the third book in The Dark Ones series.

    The paranormal genre is by far one of the most interesting. And Dark Surrender had it all in spades. Angles, demons, vampire, werewolves, and elves, mingled, loved, and fought for each other.

    The main hero Alexander, the last remaining siren, pretty much sex on two legs, had to mate to achieve his fullest potential and power. Unfortunately or fortunately for him the choice came down to three humans.

    Enter Hope, a botanist, with sweet smelling blood that enticed Alexander in a way that he didn't expect nor could control.

    Locked into a room, their proximity to each other turned out to be fateful. Both felt an intense like pull towards each other. Fighting it was impossible.

    Alexander was pretty much the opposite of Hope in every way. He grew up as a highly sexual creature, extremely selfish, self-centered, and self-assured. Hope on the other hand, felt abandoned, nothing special, overlooked, but was a genuine great person. She saw only the best in everyone.

    Because war was coming. The fight between Good and Evil almost at their doorstep. Every member of their group had to be at their strongest, and that was only achievable with their true mates at their side.

    Rachel Van Dyken wrote an incredibly fast paced story about finding the right person to love and cherish. I loved the humor and banter between the characters. Hope was such a great trooper. Resisting Alex's charms for so long. Pushing his buttons whenever possible. She was put into such a strange situation and still stayed true to herself. Dark Surrender was an intriguing love story, that literally set the pages on fire. The insta-lust was a bit jarring for me. But I see where the author was coming from.

    Loved it!!! Alex & Hope almost melted my Kindle!!!

    I love how Rachel Van Dyken can switch genres so easily!! With this book we enter the world of the Dark Ones and we learn more about Alex, the seductive Siren.

    What Alex must do is choose a mate but he never expected Hope to be one of the candidates.

    If you love paranormal, then this saga is a must read! Great settings and a magical environment! I highly recommend it.

Can a man who feeds and lives off on sex surrender his feelings for his destined mate?

    While

    can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend you to read the previous two books in order to understand the characters and the past history. Rachel Van Dyken beautifully weaves grit, sexy undertones, and raw emotions in this compelling paranormal romance. And of course, we cannot forget that RVD does her sprinkling of humor as well. So if you are looking for a PNR that is packed with entertainment, charismatic characters and love then get ready to surrender to RVD’s writing and of course, Alex.

    This series is quickly becoming a favorite of mine amongst Rachel’s book. It has it all. A bit dark, a lot funny, plenty sexy and characters that completely suck you in. Everything about Dark Surrender was a win for me. Going in I was unsure how Rachel would make me love Alex, the siren. But she completely succeeded and with a beautiful complex story to boot.

    Alex and Hope’s romance is an epic one and completely hard fought at times. From the beginning he is mean to her, like really mean, and yet neither can stand to be separated from the other. The story had so many layers and surprises. I stayed up all night desperately eager to see what would happen next and with each twist I was pulled in deeper and deeper. This book could be read as a standalone but I personally would recommend reading the series in order since it adds more depth to the story. The Dark Ones Saga is one that just keeps getting better and better. And on that note let me just say I need Mason’s book like yesterday!

    So I find myself surprised that I didn't love Alexander's story as much as the previous books. Things are moving fast for the immortals and that urgency played a. it too much into Alex and Hope's story so I lost the love connection that was needed. This was a HOT tale...temperature and tone...it was a lust filled need for survival for Alex and his little Elf but it was hard to see the mating as anything emotional as they were thrown together and boom...kinda married and not even really liking on

There was a feel of manufactured intimacy and of course Alex being a Siren didn't help. I liked the story...I just needed more of Alex and Hope to "get" their relationship. Still patiently waiting for Mason...and a vampire? Fun times ahead!

    I'm really not feeling this book. I picked it on whim when I saw some really great reviews--and I thought

    Funny thing is I actually put off the second book because the first one didn't really stick with me but I was really hoping this one would work for me because MALE siren...

    The first of the book is actually good, I genuinely enjoyed it. I loved the funny banter between Alex and Hope. Those two got me giggling alone in bed when I was supposed

    The first of the book is actually good, I genuinely enjoyed it. I loved the funny banter between Alex and Hope. Those two got me giggling alone in bed when I was supposed to study lol. But as the story progressed their relationship started to feel really shallow. The connection I was supposed to feel was absent--I just couldn't connect with them as a couple, in love.

    Maybe if the book was longer, the author could do something in terms of the characters' personal development and their relationship build-up because it's sorely lacking. These two went from being all hot and bothered

    with each other to being hopelessly in love? Ahah. Not buying it. Not buying it at all. No thanks.

    Also one thing that really bothered me in the end is that (huge spoilers ahead)

    but it fucking sucks okay. I'm not okay with that.
