This is the 4th book in the Light Warriors series. Although its part of a series, if you haven't read the others you will still be able to follow the path of the series fairly easily, as O'Shea gives you enough background (without rehashing too much for previous readers) to understand the world she's created.

The storyline is fast paced and starts almost from page one. Farran (the heroine) and Kel (the hero) - I love the unusual names! - are both fairly tortured individuals, both coming into the

This is book 4 in Patti Light Warriors series.

This book really surprised me. This is my first read by Patti O’Shea, I loved it. I loved the magic that’s used plus the use of magic fighting against demons and Shadow walkers. Everything is well devolved, so you get a fantastic storyline and characters. Farran and Kal both have messed up lives lets just say they definitely belong together. They both share their bad past life with each other, so you really get to know both of them, I found it awesom
This was a 5+ star read for me. It had lots of things that makes me happy in a book. Lots of gut wrenching pathos for example. Sometimes I just get into that stuff. I don't always enjoy a heroine who is unsure of herself but she was well written. She was the type that felt unlovable because of the way her family had treated her growing up and her insecurities just added to the angsty pathos. The hero wins the award for the most messed up super tortured hero I've read in years. But he still manag ...more

So, first things first: I received this book as part of the Goodreads First-Reads program, which sends out free books to readers hoping for them to post glowing reviews on the various book-reader web sites.

But here’s the truth: I really didn’t like this book much. Granted, paranormal romance isn’t a genre that I’ve spent any time with, but I do like paranormal and urban fantasy stories, so this really wasn’t a huge stretch for me. No, the real problem with this book was a pair of characters who

Farran lives a life of fear after barely escaping the cruelty of her Tàireil family with her life. She also hides from the enemies of her kind, the Gineal, in fear of the reprisal they will take for her role in the near death of their Dragon Mage (see Edge of Dawn). As if that wasn’t enough, she also has a demon hunting her and a strange new enemy she has never known before. The only chance she has of survival is to throw herself upon the mercy of her former b
It is amazing how screwed up both Kel and Farran are, so much so that they are perfect for each other. Farran is on the run from her family who has treated her like a piece of crap and have even physically harmed her. She turns to the one place she hopes where she can find help. Unfortunately the people she was looking for weren't there and she was forced to ask Kel for help.

Struggling to put his demons behind him, Kel impulsively decides to help her, when all hell breaks loose seconds after for
So I started this book out confused and ended the book confused. Halfway through it I realized that this had to be the second book in the series (found out that it's the 4th). I enjoyed the story line however it referred back to the prior book so much. The author assumes that the reader has read the other books, however there is nothing on the cover to suggest that its part of a series. I did get the concept of what happened previously but not enough to make me want to go back and read the other ...more
If I've not said before how much I love Ms. O'Shea's Light Warriors series, well, it can't be said enough: I love the Light Warriors series. In a market saturated with vampires and were-beasties, Ms. O'Shea's world of magic-users who eat solid food and don't turn furry is a wonderful breath of fresh air. And the fact that she follows up a great concept with solid plotting and sympathetic characters doesn't hurt either. In the Darkest Night is no exception.

Read full review here.
I really enjoyed this book. Kel and Farran seem like total opposites, but the longer they are together the more you realize that they are ment for each other and it just takes them getting over some of their personal demons to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think this book is one of the Best of 2010. I can't wait to read more of Patti O'Shea's books. If you like action, love, sexual situations, magic and fantasy then this is for you.
I have read all of Patti O'Shea's books and scored an advance copy of this one. It is without doubt her finest writing to date. Her characters have always been strong and compelling, but the emotion in this book is riveting. Both protagonists are deeply scarred physically and emotionally, and O'Shea holds nothing back. An outstanding read.

I enjoyed the chemistry between the Hero and Heroine. The story was good, I wish they would have went to more places, but other than they staying in pretty much two places, I enjoyed the story. I recommend it. I have not read the other books in the series, but I might just do it now.
An okay book, but nothing fresh. I am tired of the lists too. Check, fiery spirit. Check, stubborn as heck. Check, hella sexy. Yawn

I loved tortured heros and both characters were so damaged from life. Best quote "I think she's as fucked up as I am"

This has become my all time favorite (to date) of Patti's. Amazing story, really really loved it.

Excellent, different and I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for more from Patti O'Shea

The third book in this series was the best, this one was too disjointed.
