Caressed by the edge of darkness is the fifth book in the Rulers of Darkness series. It's my first book by this author and can easily be read as a standalone.

Gabriel wants revenge on his enemies. They took his innocence and darkened his soul. He was beaten, starved and bought to the edge of death. He isn't a good man, in fact, he is a strong vampire and he knows revenge will be sweet. In his quest to bring down his enemies he comes across a human girl who plagues his dreams. For the first time,

I've been looking forward to this book for 2 years? Or was it longer?

Gabriel was cold and distant, he hated humans and never drank from them he fed blood from a bag.


And when she was kidnapped he became obsessed looking for her. How he wanted to protect her and make her his, how possessive he was.

And here I was thinking that I had a winner in my hands but...
Too bad I spoke too soon.


He drove me mad how he kept pushing her away.
She kept throwing herself at him, she was weak at least IMO, I wis

I love love love paranormal and lately I am on a kick reading it. When I took this book the cover intrigued me as did the story’s blurb. I did read book 1 and so I knew Gabriel and his tortured soul. The brooding ones always get your heart righ

Caressed by the Edge of Darkness is the fifth book in the Rulers of Darkness series, and it is time for Gabriel's story. He became obsessed by Jordan when he first saw her, and tried to preempt her abduction by Boras. When he failed at that, he was desperate to find her. Now Jordan is not your typical wilting wallflower. She was raised as a hunter and is capable of protecting herself. However, her abductors decide to drug her to keep her pliant, and even she can't fight that.

I love a tortured he

>Book Review – Caressed by the Edge of Darkness
>This book is the 5th in the Rulers of Darkness series and ends in an HEA. Gabriel is a vampire that hates humans. He was tortured and sexually abused by a human for years. Once he was freed, he fought to free all slaves and became the king of the outcast faction of the vampires in Las Vegas. The irony of Gabriel becoming fixated on a human slave, Jordan, is not lost on any of his followers. Even though this story is fantasy, human trafficking

It took me a while to get into this book, and to be honest, I almost gave up at about 25% according to my Kindle. (I wish it would give me page numbers!) But then something happened, and Caressed by the Edge of Darkness got soooooo good! And addicting! I couldn’t put it down.

I know some people are over vampires and paranormal romance, but I still love them.

Some things in the book did bother me a bit, such as Jordan’s instant trust (and lust) for Gabriel, especially since she was a Hunter. And th

Amanda J Greene has no problem getting the story stated. The emotion starts right away and the reader really manages to connect to Jordan.

This story managed to surprise me several times as well. I liked how balanced the characters were, I felt like each one served their own purpose and had a valid place in the novel.

Gabriel to me is a difficult character to understand his motivations. I found myself wanting to give him a good hard smack a couple of times, but Greene does a great job of showing h

I have really enjoyed this series. This was a good book and I enjoyed it but only giving 3 stars because the grammatical errors were so severe that in some instances I had to actually fill in the blank with my best guess on what it should actually say. Plus the plot was a bit dull and seemed rushed at the end. I did love Jordan and her tenacious nature though. I seriously get tired of weak female characters that constantly need to be rescued and protected but this chick was tough and actually co ...more

Most Intriguing one of the series

Well finally finished this book. I’ve been reviewing this series since the beginning and it’s nice that I get to see and what these characters grow and what becomes of them. This one I have to say is probably my favorite. I don’t know if it’s because of their tragic pasts, or the fact that it was more story and less bedroom play, I just don’t know but it was a really good story and ending with the start of Sylvie and Gannon’s goodness gracious, that one is going

I liked how quick and smooth this read was. There is enough going on to keep my attention and to provide a getaway from all things reality.

The chemistry between the two characters was outstanding and their growth in their relationship and as people was wonderful to watch unfold.


Amanda J Greene really shows her writing skills when it comes to setting the scenes. She brings life to the world and characters she has created.

This book was more than I expected, and have been waiting for a long time for this one to finally be here!
Love Jordan's kick ass attitude and the fight she puts up, not sure what the other review means about her being weak......
Gabriel is a troubled man and nice to finally get to know a little more about him and see his changes. And my FAVORITE is Gannon with his humor and comic relief.
Left off revealing there will be more and can't wait to see how that develops! Please don't make us wait too

Good

I would have been more than happy to have given a four or five stars but there were so many typos and sentences started but not finished. I feel like the book was rushed considering how long it will took since the previous book in the series.

I will say that the plot was good and I love the series. I'm looking forward to the next book but I hope that wait won't be as long.

Love these stories

Really wish that you would use an editor or proof readers. Mainly because of the grammatically incorrect sentences, and odd words in strange places. That being said the story development is wonderful. I love Gannon and Silvie as a couple. With Gannon's Shaw blood maybe there is a chance for them. I am pulling for a great plot and story line that brings this full circle.

Given a 3 star rating due to the numerous spelling and grammar mistakes... great read as the others in the series, I enjoyed Gabriel and Jordan story, but somehow needs better proofreading. Looking forward to reading Gannon and Silvie's story

Decent story if...

You can get past all of the grammatical and spelling errors, different font sizes, and inappropriately used words. In desperate need of an editing overhaul - I had hoped that by the 5th book this problem would be fixed.

Boring

I have every book in this series and found this one to be boring. I kept wait for something to grab my inserts but it never happened.

When I began reading Edge of Darkness I was hesitant in continuing but it was a series I dearly loved so I knew I just wasn't emotionally invested yet....and I would be. Oh yes, I would be.

In the beginning Gabriel is entranced with Jordan when he finds a picture of her in a cell which I thought was just stupid. To be smitten with someone just by looking at a picture. But the more pages I turned I was entranced by the world that Greene made up and all the characters that populated this series. So
