Dark Divine is book three in The Divinities series. This series does need to be read in order. The plot continues throughout the series and each couple we meet, meet up and develop a relationship throughout the books until they get their own.

This novel gives us Zach and Lydia’s story and continues the battle against the demons. Zach is still hiding his true nature from Lydia and the Divinities. Lydia is reluctant to admit that Zach is her fated mated. She’s lost so much and is grieving and
This is the third novel in this enthralling series. In this story, the battle against the demons continues with Zach still hiding his true nature from the Divinities and Lydia reluctant to admit that the two are fated mates as she continues to resist her attraction to him. Whilst Kahn plots with his mate, Samoan, against the Divinities and her father, this sure is an action packed novel!

The intriguing characters, suspense filled plot and mythological aspects continue to make this a real page

Author: Lia Davis

4 unexpected stars

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, Lia Davis adds more suspense to her Divinities series by adding a character who has nothing to lose but everything to live for with Lydia - a new mother who is now a widow and vows to destroy every demon she comes across in her quest for vengeance. The last thing she expected was to come face to face with Sheriff Zach, the man who makes her feel something other than hate. Only Zach hides a

Whirlwind ride from start to finish!

This book just like the previous two is great and well worth reading Lia Davis is an excellent writer and the stories keep getting better and better. I really couldn't put this book down and it's worth way more the the five stars allowed. I would say you need to have read the previous books as you would miss out so much of the story without doing so. New mother and Divinity Lydia is no stranger to heartache and loss having already lost three family members to demons and now they want her son. If ...more

This is my first book in this series and I liked it a lot. Lydia has lost so many and wants to keep her son Logan safe. She is a witch, mom, healer, but also the demon slayer. To keep her son safe, she won't let anything stand in her way, not even Zach, the sexy warlock who wants to stop her. I liked the interplay between these two and the element of Zach's dark secret.

This is a good read, even if I largely preferred the second one. I found Lydia hard to figure out and struglled a little with her. Zach surprised me in this one, and his internal struggle kept the interest going. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment.

Another great read in the Divinities series.

Divinity Lydia Raynors has lost so much to the demons they are fighting, she refuses to lose again. They've taken too many people from her they won't take her little son. If she has to go alone, she will. She is not alone with having secrets, witch and deputy sheriff Zach Manus has a few of his own, and finding out that Lydia might be his soul mate is making his secret harder to hide.

Wow what a book. I know this is going to sound like a repeat
of another review. But dam how did I miss this book? Hell
how did I miss this whole series? This is the first book I read
in this series. But I will be reading the other books two. This
book is really in-depth, well written and just flows so well
you’re through the book before you know it. Like thinking I’ll
read a chapter or two and go to sleep and next time you look
up its 6am and time to get up, but you didn’t sleep a wink.

Now they want her son, but Lydia will never let that happen even if she has to bring them down herself. But her plans are thwarted when Zach Manus enters her life, and is hell-bent on stopping her.

This is the third book in The Divinities series, so I will shy away from reviewing it as a stand-alone because I did not read the first two. With that in mind, it is defensible why there is an abundance of characters and plots in force.
Zack and Lydia are fated mates and secrets detain both from taking that final step. Zack is fearful of what he is capable of, and Lydia’s losses keep her guarded. Though their secrets keep them apart, they cannot resist the pull of nature.

Dark Divine by Lia Davis.
4 out of 5 stars.
As the third book in the Divinities series, this centred mainly on Zach and Lydia. Both have secrets that they are hiding from everyone, both are fated to each other, and both will do anything to keep those they love safe from the demons.
After losing her father, her husband, and her brother, Lydia wants to keep her baby son and newly reunited mother safe, and so she has been going out on her own hunting demons on the streets. She's made a bit of a name

Oh wow this series gets better and better I am so glad that I discovered Ms. Davis, her stories are packed with emotional drama, action, adventure, romance and sexy alphas and strong women. What more could anyone ask for? I like that this series combines different supernatural species as well as mythology.

I am really enjoying this series and this book was a great addition. Zach is an officer and a witch. That is what everyone knows about him. Lydia is determined to protect her baby at all costs. Both Zach and Lydia have secrets. As the Divinities get closer to figuring out the bad guy's plan, Zach's trying to keep his feelings for Lydia under wraps. The problem is, she brings something out in him that no one else ever has.
I like the chemistry between Zach and Lydia. The pull they have had since

Lia Davis gives us a woman on a mission of revenge. Lydia’s father, husband and brother was taken away from her by the Demons and now they’re after her son. In Dark Divine book #3 in The Divinities series, the Demons will now see that it’s never a good thing to come between a mother and child.

Dark Divine was just as exciting as the other books in this series. If I have to choose, I must choose this book as the best so far. Besides the romance between Zach and Lydia we also solve the burning

Shame on me thought I had shared my views on this one but ugh discovered I had not. Especially since this author knows how to write and transport us readers this is also one I had waited for in this series. Right away you will attach yourself to Lydia because she is that compelling. Her strong character is one that is what I look for in a female character. Then on the other hand there is Zach whom you know means well but as you know things hiding usually have a way of coming to light. Then there ...more

Lydia has suffered the loss of her loved ones and is determined to destroy the ones responsible. Her son, Logan, is her life and she will do anything to keep him safe. Her attraction to Zach is crazy - will she give into her hidden desires?

Zach has a secret - will Lydia accept him for who he is?

Lydia is snowed under with new motherhood, loss of her husband and becoming a divinity. Her mum has been found but is now blinded by the demons who took her.

Zach is a strong witch and a secret he'll do anything to hide. He is after the rogue demon that searches for Lydia and the other Divinities.

This series goes from strength to strength! Lydia is wonderfully written as the harried and hounded new mum. Zach is alpha to the core but struggles with the protective instinct towards Lydia and her

This series just keeps getting better and better with each book. I love that the author keeps you in touch with all the characters from the previous two books from this series. Even though they are short stories it does not take from the story, you still get plenty description and not get bored from too much detail. This story is full of action, and extreme sexy scenes, as were the other two from this series. I just knew

Dark Divine is everything I'd hoped the next book would be. We get to finally find out what is going on with Zach. It's a doozy. Lydia gets what she has wanted more than anything but has to be cursed to get it. Zach and Lydia realize that the way they feel for each other isn't going to go away, in fact it's going to get much much stronger. The war is looming closer than anyone is ready for. Of course we get to catch up with all the characters we've fallen for throughout the series. Lia Davis has ...more

This is by far my favorite book of the Divinities! Not only because Lydia deserved a second chance and Zach is such a hottie, but because the story develops a little bit farther, the previous characters are all active so you keep up with their lives and I specially love the end! I can't believe who Samoan mate might be, she is the bad guy here... I really enjoyed that Lydia is such a badass and Zach is also a badass keeping a big secret. Together they rock! Literally
