The necromancers are not the only ones with allies….

Failure is not an option. Teague Olaru, vampire prince and Dark Shadow warrior, has received his orders. Seek out the vampire’s long time ally, the valkyries, and convince them to stand with the vampires in their war against the necromancers. It should have been a straightforward mission, that is, until he met Bella.

The war with the necromancers has given way to another threat. The dark witch Rowena is looking to destroy the vampires. Thanks to Zalack, the necromancer Kings son, she is free.

Teague is a prince and a member of the Dark Shadows charged with protecting the vampires from outside threats. His father the King has sent him to the Valkyries to ask for their help in fighting Rowena. It should have been a straight forward mission, then he met Bella.

I was blessed to receive an ARC of this AMAZING BOOK Teague.... Ariel never fails to keep you captivated. I didn’t want the book to end so I read it twice. Teague was sent to ask for assistance from the Valkyries an all women warrior army. While he is talking to the Queen he sets eyes on Bella, the Queen’s daughter and that was all it took. Teague found a woman who is equal to him in strength and smarts. The chemistry between in Bella and Teague is electrifying. The love between a vampire and Va ...more

this is the second book that I have read by Ariel Marie and she doesn't disappoint! teague is a sexy vampire that can have any woman he wants until he meets Bella, a warrior. When he meets her, he knows that they are destined to be mates. however, things keep Bella from fully becoming his.
Ariel's books are in my top 5 of my favorite paranormal authors and cannot wait to see what she comes out with next.

This book was an emotional roller-coaster for Teague until the end. Loved the suspense and continuation of the story line from the previous books. Can't wait to see what will happen next!

Loving this series!

Just when I believe Toma is my favorite Dark Shadows story, in walks Teague! LOL!

I don’t know what it is about a man who gets smacked in the face by love, but they’re just too adorable! The usually confident, cocky, snarky youngest son of Vladimir and Alin Olaru barely recognizes himself when he meets…and is unable to claim his fated mate, the Valkyrie warrior princess, Arabella.

Teague was a very good read! I was excited to read it after Phaelyn. Teague is sort of the jokster kind of guy. He also likes the ladies. He's been given a mission by Nicu and to take it seriously and to behave himself. He's to go to the vampire's ally the Valkyries and call on them to help with capturing the witch, Rowena. Which they are on board with because they have a huge beef with this wicked witch! What Teague didnt count on is finding him mate among the Valkyrie warriors. They are tough ...more

Phenomenal love story of Teague & Bella! Teague is a vampire prince and is part of the Dark Shadows team that protects the Vampire Nation and its humans from rogue vampires, witches and Necromancers. Bella is a Valkyries Warrior whose team joins the Dark Shadows to hunt down the powerful evil witch, Rowena. Before the action gets popping with heart-stopping scenes of incredible battles, we fall in love with our hero and heroine

The story continues on with Teague's story. Teague is one of the Royal vampire princes. He is watching his siblings fall in love and mate all around him. He is just happy with human donors. When a mission sends him to retrieve the valkylrie to help fight against the necromancers, his world as he knows it changes before his eyes. At first glance of Bella the leader of the Valkyrie, he knows she is his mate. He has a huge problem being that her and her warriors are sworn to a life of virtue.

I think this was my favorite book of the series so far. I loved the way mythology was blended in the series and presented something a little different from the norm. I enjoyed the forbidden love aspect and that the characters meshed well.
Bella and Teague were both warriors and complimented each other. I did want more like usually but over all I really enjoyed this story.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Another awesome book in the Dark Shadows Series! The characters had me from page one. Great plot, flow and development. I loved the story behind this book. Learning about Teague and Bella was wonderful. Such a great story between the two, a surprising plot twist, action and adventure, descriptive scenes and heroines. This book has it all. I can't wait to read the other books in this series! ♡

Out of this entire series thus far this is my favorite book. The author has entwined vampiric and Valkyrie mythology to bring us the explosive tale of two amazing warriors who are destined for one another. This read is a powerhouse of action and romance and I had an extremely difficult time putting this one down. I love the direction the author took with this story and I give it five stars!!!

I loved this book! I've loved every book in this series although Toma still holds the slot for number 1 for me so far, Ariel Marie keeps outdoing herself in her stories and I can't wait to read Adrian's and Nicu's (ESPECIALLY Nicu) story. I'm dying for more Dark Shadows!

This book had it all but still was very good.

Teague was sent on a mission to go to the Valkyries homeland to see if they would help find & kill the Evil Witch Rowena & there he met his mate. The queen of the Valkyries, Sira, agreed to help especially since Rowena has killed her mate & because she's BFFS with Teague's mother the queen of the vampires.

Another great read, Teague is sent to the Vampires allies to aid in catching and destroying a powerful witch. What he didn't expect to find is his soulmate. The series is stil strong, my only letdown is the endings. They feel rushed and short, other than book 1 Princess, the boys so far transition there partners quickly and all is done. Last chapter though, Nicu, leader of the Shadows always delegates a new task to a brother who happens to find his mate. Good intro to next book and per Prince Ol ...more

Sexy Valkyrie's and Her Extremely Hot Vampire

Teague and Bella's story is full of passion and heart. The vampires call upon the Valkyries of old to aide in their fight against and evil witch. Teague, one of the vampire princes is in charge of airing with them. The connection he folds with Bella is due to become legend. Ariel has brought us a wonderful tell filled with magic and wonder. I can't wait to see how she follows this story with Adrian's story.

This is the third book In the Dark Shadow series and this is a series you’ll definitely want to check out if you’re a fan of great paranormal stories filled with sexy as sin vampires and non-stop action. This can definitely be read as a standalone with no problems at all since I started off reading this series with the novella right before this one and was fine. I loved everything about this from the interesting storyline, the complex characters and the fact that there’s enough suspense that it

Teague Olaru is a Dark Shadow. That is the highest of the vampire guard that protect other vampires and the humans from rogues or any "others" that might threaten them. He is also a son of the royal family. There is a very powerful witch that is determined to kill the vampire queen, and finding her is proving difficult. Teague is sent to the Valkyrie realm to ask for assistance, because the witch is also a sworn enemy of their queen.
Arabella is a Valkyrie warrior and daughter of the queen. She

Wow!, I cant tell if these are happy tears or not... What a wonderful book.

I really like that he was the smart ass brother who was always wise cracking, and then BOOM....

Fated Mates and Death

I have been reading this series since the first book was written and Ariel Marie improves with each story. How she improves upon perfection of her paranormal story is beyond me. I can't get enough of this series!

What would you do if your fated mate was chosen as the sacrifice deemed by a God to save your mother's life? Would you bow your head so as not to offend the gods, knowing you will die without your mate?

Vampires, witches, Valkyrie, necromancers and more! An incredib

Very few authors have I read more than 3 books of theirs and loved ever single one ! I never have to question if I'm going to enjoy one of Ariel's books . She is such a talented writer I think I could read 100 books from her and never get bored !

As for Adrian this book was great just as the others . I was thinking that it may have been the first death of the royal family , but was pleasantly surprised . Without giving any spoilers it was a surprising turn of events and was awesome and introduce
