Laylah is running for her life, this time from a vampire, one that is relentless in his pursuit.  She will never be taken prisoner again, too much is at stake.

Laylah is a Jinn, half human, half demon, the only one of her kind left. A mongrel they call her, one that must be put down.  Her powers are not the most stable, and she never knows exactly what will happen when she chooses to use them.   Laylah has the ability to “shadow walk”, traveling through space and time.  Now, that Caine has had to run from the Were’s, Laylah has been given her chance at freedom.  All she has to do is lose one irritating and  tenacious vamp.

Tane is a Charon, a vampire whose name strikes fear in hearts of others, even vampires.  He has been sent to capture the Jinn.  The Commission wants her brought in, she has been deemed a danger.  As he chases the Jinn through the underground tunnels, his reasons for finding her are starting to take on a completely different objective . 

When Tane finally captures Laylah, all the rules change.  He will learn her secrets and give his solemn vow to protect her.  Laylah hides a child and will keep the child safe, even if it means her life . The child is the key to the future of the world.

Seers, Oracles, Kings, Vampires, Hunters, Were. Mages, Fey, are hunting them. Marika, an evil vampire, wants the child!  Tane and Laylah will have to find the answers they seek before the enemy can find them.  Their love flourishes even among all the obstacles in their path. The question is, will they survive the clutches of evil?

I gave this book 4
Fabulous!  Devoured By Darkness is a finger licking good treat!  I enjoyed this book so much. Talk about a paranormal free for all, you have the gamut of fantasy in this series:  seers, oracles, kings, vampires, hunters, weres, mages, & fey.  There is something for everyone:  action, love, romance, fighting, and of course sex. I’ve been a fan of Alexandra Ivy’s The Guardians series for quite some time.  Tane and Laylah’s story is a terrific read.  They are the perfect match.  We get to see just about all our favorite characters in the series. If you haven’t read all the books in the series, I suggest that you do.  You won’t be disappointed.
