Book Two of The Dark Light Series

Dorian Skotos is Dark. And although that brand of sheer, unrelenting evil is a direct threat to her life, Gabriella is tragically in love with him.

Gabriella knew it was all too good to be true. The way his touch radiated electricity right to her core, the way his ice blue eyes somehow made panties drop involuntarily, how his sexy half-smil

Start your review of The Dark Prince (Dark Light, #2)


You're going to be immersed from the first chapter.
Enthralled by the powers of choice and destiny.
Yes, there is magic. But the Dark and the Light manifest in ways beyond the supernatural realms.

There is no right or wrong decision for her. Both sides obliterated her parents. One side used the man she loves to lure her in. The other side wants to annihilate her.

I know what this is.

Dorian Skotos was sent to do a job, a job in which he finds harder to complete than originally thought. The Dark isn’t suppose to love, they aren’t built to know how to but for Dorian he knows he is indeed in love with Gabriella Winters which makes what he was sent to do almost unbearable.

If Dorian ruined me in Dark Light, he straight up OWNED me in The Dark Prince. This book was fantastic! What little I felt was missing from the first book in the series was more than made up for in the sequel.

"I'm completely addicted to you and I'm not sure how to deal with that."

This book made me an absolute nervous wreck! On a scale from 1-10 the intensity level was a 9.9 from start to end! There was NEVER a dull moment, and I'm pretty sure the first chapter alone took a solid 3 ye

I was fortunate to receive an ARC of this book. I wish I could give more than 5 stars because this book deserves so much more!!! This book it hot and sexy but as also very deep and emotional.

This book was TERRIFIC! Full of suspense, action, mystery, magic, love, sex, TWISTS & TURNS galore, witty banter, and so much more! Passion heats up, relationships crumble, new desires are brewing, and the unexpected happens.

I am so grateful to receive an ARC for The Dark Prince. This novel is the second installment to S.L. Jennings, Dark Light series.

The main characters Gabriella Winters and Dorian Skotos continue their paranormal HOT romance. Gabriella maturely evolves in this novel as she prepares to endure the unevitable transitional ascension and her spiritual, emotional, mental and steamy physical bond to the enigmatic Dark Dorian. Dorian was originally sent to complete a mission and is caught between a rock a

I was over the moon ecstatic to be fortunate enough to have been selected to get an ARC of The Dark Prince.
Where to begin? The Dark Prince picks up right where The Dark Light leaves you. This series is unlike any that I have read before, it's not your traditional paranormal romance. I knew from page 1 that I would not be able to put it down. The author S.L. Jennings has a magical way with getting her characters emotions out so strong that the reader feels what the character feels. I went from l

I read Dark Light recently and loved it, but this one took the story to another level. The angst...oh the angst...I wasn't sure if my heart was going to survive some of the things that happened. Gabriella did a lot of growing up in TDP, she finally found herself, found who she was meant to become.

"Her parents died so she could live and achieve her destiny. A destiny to be great, to be fearless. A destiny to be utterly extraordinary. " And that's exactly what she becomes, extraordinary. My hat

Well... I did like this second book in the series, but not as much as I had wanted to. I think it was about 200 pages too long and I was to the point where I had to skim a bit to get to the end.
I did like the ending and I will probably read book #3 when it comes out.

This book starts out just after Dark Light finished, with Gabs finally seeing some truths that had been staring her in the face the entire past book. This one has much of the same, but I feel like it’s flirting with soap opera-ish drama-llama, and I still feel like the “paranormal presence” takes a back seat to Gabriella’s drama.

I wish I could say Gabs gets better, but her character is just as whiney and clingy as the last book. I’m disappointed that she’s so weak, she seems to either be feelin

Gabs must confront the mysterious man, who found his way into her heart. The man sent to kill her. The man she loves. Dorian Skotos. I was immediately sucked into this whirlwind.

It was written with so much angst, beautiful emotional drama, suspense and so many OMG moments!! I was not bored EVER!!

Gabs journey was filled with it all but she was my hero through out. She didn't give up and fought like the DL she is...this amazing young supernatural being took it all in her stride, even when the odds were greatly against her. Love me some Gabrie

Gabby is getting ready to turn 21 and must choose between the Dark and the Light. Along the way there are forces trying to make her decision for her and keep her away from the one man that loves her, Dorian. She has some very hard decisions to make.

Combined review for Dark Light and The Dark Prince. Originally posted at

"I've been waiting my entire life to love you."

Five bright, big, sparkly stars for both Dark Light and The Dark Prince! I read these books back-to-back without breathing time in between. S. L. Jennings has written the beginnings of an excellent series that will keep you on the edge of your seat. These two books were addictive - the characters, the world building and the plot are all top notch. Hold

While I did enjoy Dark Prince more than its predecessor, I still wasn't consumed by it. Dark Prince didn't get interesting until you hit the halfway mark. I was literally about to give up on this book and series. Thankfully, things turned around for the better and SHIT just got REAL...

“Everyone has superpowers. Apparently mine are fucking and fighting. I'm insanely good at both."

“I know what this is. I know this is my truth. My past. My present. My future. It is what I knew all along and, like a freaking idiot, ignored because my beautiful illusion was so much better than my tragic reality.
For once, I had embraced happiness. Bliss. In spite of finding out what I was, finding out that I was a half Light, half Dark inbreed, I was happy. Even with a damn supernatural assassin out for my
blood, I was content. Because of him. He made me whole. A new and improved Gabs. A girl that wanted to be good enough. For him.
Fuck. Him.”
