really liked it
Read from February 01 to 06, 2012

I bought When Darkness Comes because it was part of bundle special through Amazon. Even though the bundle is books 1, 2, and 7 (what?) I couldn't resist the price and the reviews looked pretty good. I knew nothing about this series beyond the couple reviews I'd read, but decided to give it try because I seem to be in a 'wing it' state of mind with regard to my reading choices these days. And I am very happy to say I really enjoyed this book!

Dante is your stereo typical uber hot, super strong, chronologically gifted vampire who has a penchant for the saying "devil spit" at times when one would say "son of a biscuit". A few hundred years ago he found himself the unwilling guardian of The Chalice, a spirit goddess who's job it is to keep the evil at bay.

Abby is the personal assistant of the woman who holds the spirit of The Chalice. Abby is a loner, no family or friends, and really has no compulsion to do anything but make sure her rent is paid and secretly swoon over the mysterious Dante. She is in one heck of a rut until someone kills her boss and she finds herself the holder of The Chalice when the spirit transfers itself to Abby. She is now the bearer of unspeakable power she has no idea how to control.

When Darkness Comes is the story of Dante and Abby fighting off the bad guys, who are hell-bent on destroying The Chalice once and for all, while trying to find a way to release Abby of this burden. Dante and Abby have great chemistry. They're both sarcastic and witty and pretty refreshing as characters. They do not fight their attraction and take advantage of it whenever they can spare a minute or fifteen or a day from fighting the bad guys. You don't have to put alot of thought into this book, it's a quick read and the plot is just thick enough to keep you in the story and interested in the characters and what the happen upon next.
