Review: Darkness Descending by Devyn Quinn

Aug 2, 2011

Book 1 ~ A Novel of The Vampire Armageddon

The first seal has been broken, signaling the end of days. Fallen angels in the form of vampires are infecting humans one by one, creating an army fit for Armageddon. Of the few who survive the infection, one stands alone above all others…

For one year, Jesse Burke has been suppressing the beast within, driven by vengeance to destroy the vampiric fallen angels terrorizing New Orleans. But a war of biblical proportions is too much for one girl to handle, and she must turn to slayer Maddox deValois for training, though it threatens her fiercely-guarded independence. At the same time, the sinister demon Queen Amonate is doing everything in her power to lure Jesse into embracing the darkness inside her soul—a power play that will trap her in a deadly web of deception between the forces of good and evil…

Before this war is over, everyone will learn that hell hath no fury like a woman possessed…

I gave this book a 5

Urban Fantastic! Astonishing! Ingenious!  Darkness Descending by Devyn Quinn is a paranormal junkie's dream!  Devyn Quinn has an undeniable melismatic flourish for spinning a truly wonderful paranormal!   Vampires trying to annihilate mankind in a post Katrina New Orleans was pure brilliance. This incredible new view on the origins of vampires is a manifestation of creativity and sensational writing. Jesse Burke has overcome the impossible and she has intrigued me, I want to know more. Maddox has the makings of the next "Junk Du Jour", with the fighting skills we all want in our men.  This thrilling new series is sure to please.
