I really loved Impulse and it earned every one of the five stars I rated it. I feel this book is so different from the first two. The books are maturing as are the characters. This was by far my favorite so far.

Silver can't seem to go five minutes without getting herself into some kind of trouble. There are times in this series that I get annoyed with her for her immature actions or attitude. But, I have to remind myself that in the life of a Mage, where most are literally hundreds of years old,

I loved books one and two of this series but in this case the third was not the charm! There were far too many hot/cold moments relating to Silvers feelings towards Logan and frankly I grew very weary over them. Anticipation is a glorious thing until it crosses a line into ridiculous! This play of hot/cold crossed that line near the beginning of Impulse and went so far past it that **spoiler alert** when the two did finally hook up – it didn’t really mean much. In fact Silver still didn’t seem t ...more
Silver is living in Cognito with her Ghuardian, Justus. She is obviously falling madly in love with Logan (any alpha loving female couldn’t help herself- LOGAN IS YUMMY). She is offered a position by the Mageri for her excellent abilities (hence her new body guard Christian the vampire). But Breed keep attacking her and she’s getting really tired of being the target.

Justin, Silver and Simon find a mystery box that contains secrets that just might destroy Silver. Some will do anything to possess

This book was really good, and this series is really good and entertaining. In this book soooooooooooo much much much happens. Way too much. Wow it's overwhelming. I just love everything I'm so glad I get to read these back to back. The relationship between Silver and Logan is growing they find out several things about Silver, about the benefactor, and what his plans are. Who backs him who isn't on their team so much. Wow. Just wow. On to the next one!!

Side note Logan sort of reminds me of Curra

One of the things I enjoy about this series is how Dark continues to flesh out the supernatural world and further the overall arc development. In IMPULSE we learn more about Silver from her childhood to surprising information about her birth.

The story surrounds a box Silver took in the previous book. Simon and the others have been investigating its contents, and it leads to some disturbing discoveries. The story takes place about a year after the previous book, and we see development in Silver's

New mysteries, and more dangerous situations for Silver. Also lots of romance, and some important decisions to made. I especially loved the final paragraph with Silver and her Ghuardian!

This and other reviews can also be found on my blog: (un)Conventional Bookviews.

Impulse is a very apt name for the third book in the Mageri series! We get to know more about Silver, her birth, her childhood, and why she is sometimes not doing what her impulse is telling her to do! We also get to know a lot more a

In book 3 of this series, Silver is still fighting the 'double standards' of her new world, still in love with her 'enemy'...bad boy Logan, one hot guy! Then there is Adam, sigh. Even Justus has become even more awesome! Silver??? Love her guts and snark! ALL of the characters have grown, become more mature, dimensional. You learn so much more about how they came to be the way they are. This is a 'must read' for paranormal lovers!

I really enjoyed this the second time around. It took me so long to finish it because I thought certain events happened in this book. Well they didn't so it appears it happens in the next book!

Logan is such a great guy though. I really hate how the Mageri and all the other Breeds don't really protect their people. It's super annoying. And women don't know how to fight because they "shouldn't" or don't need to is insane and stupid as the events in this book showcased. Overall, while Mageri isn't

I highly recommend this series.  Loved 'Impulse', the 3rd book in this series which just gets better and better.  Dannika Dark does such a great job with character development.  She's created an interesting believable world and characters that you want to hang out with, and learn more and more about.  

There's a fairly large cast of characters, all interesting.  Aside from the 4-5 lead characters, some of the secondary characters have pretty significant roles too.  All handled so well, you can pi

loved it!!! I am so glad that the book is a bit longer.
I loved that Silver and Logan got closer.

Logan *sigh* was amazing in this book. The way that he puts himself out there for Silver....sigh.

We learn more about Justus, which I like (spoiler!! : maybe Justus and Page can get together?? I'd LOVE to see that)

It was a little off-putting for me cause I was tired of all the testosterone around Silver.
I do like Christian but I hope the author doesn't make him fall fo
Dannika Dark hit it out of the park with this third installment of the Mageri series. The plot is continuing to flow and moving in new and totally surprising directions; ones that were not readily apparent and so came as wonderful surprises.

The characters are continuing to evolve in a completely believable manner.....nothing seems forced or awkward. I'm even more in love with Justus now than I have been for the past 2 books ;-) Silver's evolution is incredible from physical, mental, emotional a

What a glorious read! Sterling and Twist were so great. But in my opinion, Impulse blew them out of the water! The characters are changing and growing. It was great to be able to get a little more background one character in particular. I laughed, I cried, my heart broke, my heart soared! I didn't think I could love the characters in this book more than I already did, but I find myself loving them even more. Dannika Dark hit a serious home run with this book!

Unlike the previous 2 books in this series, this one is a solid 4 stars. Silver seems to be getting a touch smarter and has fewer TSTL moments.

Honestly, I read on to and through the next one so fast, that I can't rightly say much about this one. But, that statement right there is about all you need to know. :)

This series just gets better and better by the book, I'm absolutely in thrall, LOVE IT!! Full of action, suspense, surprises & amazing characters.

Dannika Dark continues to enthrall me with this third book in her Mageri series. This installment dips a little more into the romance than the first two did. Maybe because Silver is finally getting a chance to explore a real relationship with just one man. Let me just say again how much I adore Logan and the dynamic between these two. It is really the heart of this book, even though there is some action on the side.

Logan is slowly and methodically courting Silver now in the ways of his people. T

Dannika takes on another wild ride in this tale. Silver is just getting ready to "celebrate" her first birthday as a mage. She's got a great guy named Logan Cross, and she is surround by people who care about her for the first time in her life. But that doesn't mean life is simple. Oh no. Nero is still out to get her. Silver also learns who she really is and what that means for her future.

So much to talk about. But I can't because I don't want to spoil this series. After two weeks you should ha

Hmmm . . . I'm getting used to loving Ms. Dark's writing, and in the latest installment of her Mageri series there was lots of character development, both individually and relationally (is that a word?), but plot-wise it seemed a little scattered. In the first book, Zoe got turned into a mage by a bad man and that bad man got his. In the second book another bad mage was after Silver (no-longer-named-Zoe) and captured her, but she got away and raised a lot of hell. In this one there was the main ...more

Right now all I can say is Wow! Absolutely Awesome :)

The long awaited third book of the Mageri Series was phenomenal. I hate to think I have to wait again for book four. Impulse was so different than Sterling and Twist. Dannika gave so much more attention to her other characters such as Adam, Novis, Logan and Justus. The Mageri series has evolved so much since the first book Sterling. It began with such a simple story of a girl who was involuntarily changed into a Mage. Each book since Dannika h

4.5–This series keeps getting better and better! All the angst. All the slow burn. I am in deep for these characters...I never thought I’d be a fan of Justus, but we get to know him and why he is the way he is. Simon, Christian. Goodness sakes, i love them all.

Oh I am in love with these audiobooks! I don’t want to say the same thing for each book but it’s true this is a great addition to the series.

We really get to see Silver have to overcome so many things, from self-worth, to love, being good enough, and even empathy.

Trust is a huge thing Sliver needs to learn. To trust for her is to open herself up but is so very hard for her with everything she has gone through. But I do believe Logan is helping her with this.

that ending was so damn sweet, and God I LOVE Justus. and so matter how obnoxious Christian may seem,I really like him; he's hilarious. Logan is adorable and kind and all sorts of yummy. I was just disappointed with where Adam is going. the book is awesome; the plot is packed and the characters are great.

My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at

This book felt a little bit like a filler book to the series to me. It didn't have a strong plot line like the first two books. It almost felt like a PNR book, as it focused a lot of the relationship between Silver and Logan. That is not to say there isn't conflict, because there is. It just seemed more of the secondary plot.

In this book, we meet a new character in Christian. He is a vampire and becomes a gua

There are some authors that change your life through the pages of their books. For me, Dannika Dark is THE ONE. It started with Sterling, grew with Twist, and has utterly swept me away with Impulse. I suffered 24 hrs of post Impulse after-glow!

I had to take time after finishing Impulse before writing this so that my whole review wasn't "OHMYGAWD!!!!!!"... but OHMYGAWD lol this book was in a word; hot! No... hott, its hottness can't be contained in one T.

Impulse by Dannika Dark has taken this series to new levels. Dannika Dark has taken her love of her craft and made it her own, leaving lasting impressions! I was delighted by how Dark transported us in this series. Silver and Logan are HAWT, driving this series to new heights and making fans fall in love with all things Logan.

This was great. Loved it. Looking forward to next one. This one lacked the action that the last two had. But we got some answers in this one. Silver went through some serious stuff this time, didn't think she would recover. But of Course, my girl did. Love the dynamic b/w Logan and Silver. Move over Simon, Christian rocks. Love Christian Poe and Silver's banter. I think he might be enamored with her. Can't tell, but definitely would like to find out. Can it really work out between Logan and Silv
