The explosive third installment in the Crossbreed Series by USA Today Bestselling author Dannika Dark.

For Raven Black, hunting criminals is second nature. So is denial. It’s not easy moving forward with one foot stuck in the past. But a new case offers her a much-needed distraction when Keystone accepts their toughest assignment yet—to track down an e

“Believe it or not, good things can come out of chaos. Life can arise from death just as death can arise from life.” - Dannika Dark

You know, there are books you just can’t get enough of, the ones that get under your skin you want to share them with the world.

This, my friends, is one of those books. This whole series has been a shocker for me. And I will tell you why. I am a romance fanatic.

This series hints at romance and relationships, and you can see things are developin

Little Raven

This series keeps getting better and better. Dannika Dark to me is an author unlike any other. I finished this in one go. It wasn't really a choice. It called for me to. If you like anything by Dannika you won't be disappointed. If you have never read a book by her i urge you to start with the Mageri series and save money for all the books you have to read. Lol

Now about the story. It picks up a little after the last mission and a new one falls in their laps by chance. This book is ab

Loved it! LOVED IT.

Review to come! Review below

Wished for more Christian POV!


I loved this book, and while I have some issues with the plot I enjoyed the book immensely. The team has to locate a baby who was cut from his mother's womb and is being sold on the black market. Shepard is also dealing with his own issues this book. We find out how the two situations might be related. And some random dude keeps showing up where Raven is and I'm SUPER suspicious of him at the moment.

All right. I am hooked already! Took to the third book but I freakin' love this series!! I was not so sure after book 1. Liked it a bit more after 2 but holy cow! You need to read this series.

If you are a romance reader, this may be where we part ways. This reads more like a serial. The sotry continues. There are some steamy thoughts rolling through Raven's head and a heavy undercurrent of s3xual energy between her and Christian. Things are moving along between them, but the stories are not jus

Christian and Raven and now two of my favorite characters in Dannika's books next to Silver and Simon from the Mageri series. Their interaction is wonderfully frustrating and I root for the both of them as individuals and as a possible couple. Absolutely love this series. ...more

It felt like I was in the middle of a film, surrounded by non-stop action, explosions, chases and hot people. There is a definite progress between Raven and Christian, and felt so good to finally hear his confession!
AudioBook Review:
Stars: Overall 5 Narration 5 Story 5

Dark has done it again! Keystone has a new case, and it promises to be one of the most twisted and strange yet, and the gang is ready to go. A child has been ripped from the womb and is for sale on the black market – and it is up to them to discover the who and what, and find the child. SO much tension here: Raven and Christian’s chemistry is sparking throughout, Shepard often seems like he’s struggling with something from his past, and ther

4 It’s getting better stars

The Crossbreed series is seriously a slow burn series, but if you are in that mood it hits the spot. I’m not sure why I continued this series since I gave the first two books 3 stars. It’s really really really slow, and even this one is slow, but it’s getting better and maybe I like the slow torture.

I’m sticking to the series because I have to read how Raven and Christian will unfold, even though almost nothing has happened, but I just got to know!

I swear Dannika Dark is like crack and Nicole Poole is her dealer. Dark writes fantastic characters and engaging worlds and storylines. Poole magically brings them all to life creating the perfect pairing. I love when each character has a distinct voice and personality. Our heroine Raven Black and her partner Christian Poe along with the rest of the members of Keystone handle unsolved murders, kidnappings and breed crimes others can

I freaking love the Crossbreed series from Dannika Dark. Then again, I pretty much love everything Dannika Dark writes so perhaps I’m a bit biased. I mean… what else is there to say about Deathtrap that I haven’t already said in my previous reviews for the other books in the series? As always, this series remains action packed, funny, exciting, and filled with great distinct characters. It’s pretty much made out of everything I like about books.

Crazy for Books (Stephanie)
There were some great moment of hilarity in this one and one moment that brought me to tears.

The only reason I'm not giving each book in this series more than three stars is because they do a lot of stupid things that could be alleviated with a simple conversation. And most of what they are holding back isn't big. Bugs me that simple things are held back in order to push the storyline forward.

Crossbreed Book 3

I absolutely love this series. Even though there's no cliffhanger, the anticipation for Book 4 is even more pronounced than after reading the first two books. Just keeps getting better. With that said, patiently waiting for Book 4.......Hopefully I don't have to wait long...

RAVENHEART didn't leave me yearning for book three, but I really enjoyed DEATHTRAP and was happy with the character developments that took place.

I'm glad I gave DEATHTRAP a shot. It started off a little slow for me, but thankfully didn't take obnoxiously long to pick up and get me interested in the story. I enjoyed the story of the case that Keystone was working, but the side stories actually interested me a bit more.

Raven and Christian make some interesting progress on a few different aspects

Another great book from Dannika Dark! Book 3 in the Crossbreed Series takes the group back out on another criminal investigation involving the black market and child kidnapping.
I loved seeing the friendship bonds grow between the Keystone members. Answers to past lives are revealed and Raven gets to revisit her past. Just the right amount of humor, romance, and unexpected reveals.

So many secrets revealed

Loved this story. We are given so many glimpses into the characters pasts. Wouldn't it be great for another crossover to occur, maybe involving Kane and Caroline. hint, hint, Dannika. This story was gripping and heart wrenching. I feel so bad for Shepherd. Will he tell Keystone or will he do something desperate. Only Dannika truly knows this answer and I hope the next book is forthcoming in the answers that we need answered, NOW. Another great read by Dannika Dark

I absolutely loved this book! I was holding my breath through many moments. It brought a lot of things out in the open. Those that I hope go in the direction I want, and those that I can't wait to read the answer for. Dannika did it once again, she has never let my hopes down. I look forward to reading the next book in the series!!

This third installment of the Crossbreed series was fast paced and full of adventure. Raven continues to struggle with her attraction to her work partner and to learn more about teamwork. She is used to being on her own and is reluctant to seek and/or accept assistance from others. Readers discover additional details about the lives of the team prior to their joining Keystone and the demons they fight personally. Christian seems more personable and quietly giving in this book. He exceeds his phy ...more

Slow burn

I like when author's takes the time to develop the characters and give you a chance to feel the characters. I get instant attraction but have a hard time with the instant love. The excitement is in the journey and I am definitely enjoying the journey of our Keystones characters. Shepard wasn't really on my radar because I've never thought much about the sensor breed. He has a piece of my heart now and I can't wait to see what happens. With Dannika's style of writing and her ability to b

Dannika Dark has a way of drawing you into her world's and not letting you go. At the end of the Seven series I thought there was no topping it but she proved me wrong. I love Raven Black and the depth of character she has given her. I didn't care for Christian Poe as part of Mageri but he has evolved and we have gotten to know and understand him. I love that we are peeling back layers to the whole Keystone team. Dannika Dark creates world's that engage you and draw you in. Another great read an ...more

Wow loved it!

The series just gets better and better! Beautifully written and I just love Raven and Christian. Its just amazing. Thank you Dannika Dark your amazing!!!
Another beautifully written book by Dannika Dark. We get pulled in really early in this book to a dark part of the Breed-world. We get to know some of the characters better and I even changed my mind over Shepherd (okay sorry but didn't really like him much in book 1). The story was really heartbreaking and as per usual, had me all teary-eyed when Raven revisits her past. Some truly comical moments between the team members had me laughing out loud - there are some classic things that you can't m ...more

3.5 stars

A fun and enjoyable read. I'm loving the series and all the action involved. The twist in this book was definitely an eye-opener, though I started to feel that something like that might happen. The twist doesn't resolve itself right away, which makes sense for the series. I can't wait for it to resolve, though. I have a feeling, when it does, it'll be a huge game-changer.
