I read this novel in a single afternoon. Forward held me bound from cover to cover. The fast forward pace of the at times suspenseful story combines with the true emotional bonds between the characters to create an unforgettable (and at times unfathomable) whole. Forward has created an entire world for her readers to fall in love with, complete with a history and mythology of its own, and it’s hidden right within our own. Forward has created a fantastic ending for this novel. I love how things ...more

The third book in the Scimitar Magi series puts the bar in a higher place. In this installment the magic goes darker and the demons are more evil. We witness how the gods mess with the lives of people without caring about the consequences and the action is always present.

We first met Astrid and Kane in the previous book, but it was a quick meeting and now they take the leading role. Their story is full of drama, tension, adrenaline and romantic moments.

Astrid is the ultimate kick-ass female her

I walked into this story having no idea what a Scrimitar Magi was, but that didn't matter. I was introduced to a world where descendents of Gods are reborn into somewhat immortal warriors who protect the human realm from all sorts of bad guys. It was interesting, at times funny and definitely full of some very hot alpha males.

DARKNESS UNBOUND tells the story of Astrid, a woman who had been wronged one too many times in her life by men and suddenly finds herself the first female members of this g

Astrid and Zannis were together in another life. Atrid has moved on and has a partner that she is attracted to, but then Zannis comes back into her life and is ready to fight for her. Well when he isn't trying to kill her and put her in the hospital.

I really enjoyed their story and there is so much of it in this book. Sometimes it could get overwhelming, but overall it was a fantastic read.

I give Darkness Unbound 4 hearts!

Third in the Scimitar Magi Series, "Forgotten in Darkness" is a unique work that stands quite well on its own.

Read full review in the 2014/2015 Holiday issue of InD’tale Magazine.

“Darkness Unbound” by Zoe Forward was an interesting adventure. First, I have to confess that I don’t often read too much of this genre. So there are some aspects of the story that I might not understand completely. Aside from not reading this genre too much I was really interested in the plot of the story and I was intrigued to see how it would play out.

Astrid Scarre is a covert. However, in her past life she was a partner/lover/ wife to Zannis. Zannis is a Dragon magus. When the story begins h

Darkness Unbound by Zoe Forward

Fascinating. Gods, daemons and magi.
A world of warriors in fierce battles against evil. A world with Gods in modern times. A female magi with mad fighting and organizational skills. Souls being reincarnated.
Astrid is caught between two men. Zannis from a long ago time and Kane who she has worked with for years and has trusted to guard her back.

"Fear and an undeniable fascination with the power and danger of this man coalesced."
"She was alone in a dark, deserted lo

What in the world did I just read? I was so confused by the time the 3rd chapter hit me I for some reason had to continue to read the damn thing hoping that it would make a clearer picture in my head. Don't get me wrong the author did a wonderful with the writing I just think that it was too much. I had to many POV's to try and follow and so many details that I didn't really understand what in the hell was going on. I did love all the hott and juicy sex scenes those were enough to make my cheeks ...more
I received a copy of this story in exchange for a honest review. I didn't get a chance to read books 1&2 in the series prior the reading this and I found I was able to keep up with the story and fully enjoy it. The storyline was sexy and the mixture of past and present characters added a wonderful depth to the mix. Overall great read.

I have to admit I only found out it was part of a serie when I'd already requested the copy.

So far I liked the concept a lot, it just didn't turn out to be my thing. I probably would've liked it better if I'd started with the first book, but now, I don't really have the need to start it.
