I always start a new book in this series, feeling conflicted. That being said, I am usually completely engrossed in the story by the end and need the next book right away... Rebecca Royce is the queen of cliffhangers. I don't know if there is a single book in this series that ends without one. Keep in mind that this is an RH series, and so follows the same concept as every other book in this series where the female main character will end up with more than one man.

As I have said in almost every

Oh my Lawd!! What a book. This was one of the books you hate for it to end. She was able to put so much emotion and you would feel like you where there. Waverly deserved so much in life but got nothing but pain and suffering from her father. All I could think is why someone hasn't kilt this MF by now. When her guys start to pay attention to her she ddn't believe it. But Canyon, Rohan, Ari and Jackson. Waverly started to blossom, love and fight for her little family. Of course happy didn't last ...more

Reviewed by SFF Dragon*

Small acts of kindness mean a lot when you've spent your life brutalised and alone... but love is something unexpected...

OMG, I love this series. Centred around the resistance led by the mysterious Makenna and set within the ongoing war between the Sandler Cartel and Evander Corporation as they battle to control the galaxies at either end of the black hole discovered in the first story, I was hooked by this terrific book from the very first page

Rebecca Royce

Oooo this is the first book of three for Waverly Sandler. A new part to the series to come out. Waverly is a Sandler through and through with her attitude. But she is a good Sandler as she is definitely not like her father at all. She is a nurse, who enjoys helping people and babies. All through her life she was told she was ugly and will be nothing of use to her father. So when four dashingly handsome men come out of no where stating that they trust no one but her

There are simply not enough stars for this unique story of Waverly and her gorgeous men! Once I began to read it, there was no putting it down. I've never been a fan of Sci-fi so I was surprised that I could really enjoy this book. I am so happy I got the chance to read it, and I can't wait for the next book! If you too don't seem to be a fan of Sci-fi, don't let it hold you back from this read because I promise it's awesome and worth a chance!!

‘Dark Demise’ book 7 in the Wings of Artemis series, is another great read of Rebecca Royce’s. I absolutely love this series! The overall story arc continues from the previous books with this one being about Waverly Sandler and her four hot men; Canyon, Rohan, Jackson and Ari. At the end of the book the author tells us that the rest of the story will continue, very soon I hope, in ‘Light Unfolding’ book 8.

If you haven’t read this series yet I don’t recommend you start with this book. They

Waverly is a Sandler, there's no denying it. However, she's nothing like her father. She doesn't have the blond-haired, blue-eyed Sandler good looks. She's not pretty and petite like the other Sandler women. Instead, she has bright red hair, brown eyes, too much padding on too many curves, and she's nearly 6 feet tall. In her father's eyes she is worthless; too ugly to serve him any purpose. He has brainwashed her since her first breath that she is a burden, worth nothing, unlovable. That's not ...more

what a THRILL RIDE!!!

This series really packs a punch! It definitely keeps the adrenaline going with the non stop action, intrigue, lies, betrayal, romance, sneak attacks and more. A world with super soldiers, warring factions book want to take over the universe, and rebels intent on ending this war to find peace for people. You don't have to have read the previous books in this BRILLIANT series to enjoy it....however I personally recommend doing so to give you a better understanding of the

Waverly was so mistreated by her father. She has very low self esteem and doesn't value herself as she should. She is an excellent nurse and saved her sister-in-law from great harm at great risk to herself. She can't believe that there are men out there that want her.

I have really loved this series. Waverly is a new favorite. She is so hard-working and expects so little from others. She really deserves to feel valued and beautiful. There are men out there for her and they are determined to show

Waverly Sandler believes she is unworthy of anything that comes naturally to others. In her mind she is the ugly Sandler, her hair too orange, her eyes just brown, she's too curvy and much too tall. While that may be how some folks see her, it is not how the guys see her or Paloma or Diana or Melissa. They all see a beautiful, intelligent and talented woman.

If you have been following this series then you know a bit about the possibility of time travel. This book takes that further as Waverly is

I have loved the Wings of Artemis series, and was not at all disappointed by Dark Demise. Waverly was a perfect female role for this story. I loved that she was not your traditional version of attractive, and instead as a reader you love her for her overall ‘goodness’.

Life on ‘the Farm’ as they are referring to it, is seemingly safe and a bit routine. That is, until the day Waverly Sandler suddenly joins a secret group. Unbeknownst to Waverly this group has more interest in her, than her

I don't know what I can say about this series that I haven't already but LOVE IT! After reading the last book I thought I knew who the men would be in this one and I love being right and wrong. So didn't see it all and what a great surprise! Waverly is a wonderful woman who so deserves her men! And oh those men Jackson, Rohan, Canyon and Ari what can you say but HOT! They're all so different except for how they feel for her.

This story picks up the continuing storyline and gives some surprises,

Waverly is the eldest daughter of garrison Sandler and a nurse. She is now on a what they call the farm. Her evil father had sent her to be sold but she was saved.
Now she has loving brothers and sister in law. Then their is Ari Bennett, Jackson Wheeler and 2 super soldiers Rohan and Cangon. They all love her
She us comment to terms with being lovable . Hard from someone who has been abused. The people who live on the farm are fighting 2 other groups the sandler cartel and evander corporation

I am kicking myself for reading this. I forgot that when I started the Wings of Artemis books, the author had noted that each heroine would have 2 books to complete her story. So now, I've gone and invested myself in Waverly and her potential men & the storyline, and wham – now I have to wait for her second book to get a full resolution to her story and HEA. This is a good complaint, just one where I'm not patient to want to wait for the end of a good story.

I really liked Waverly and her

What an awesome book to continue the Wings of Artemis Series! This book is about Waverly who was previously introduced in book 6. She's a little different from the previous MCs of this series. She's less confident due to previous mistreatment and describes herself as not being the typical beautiful petite female that she was brainwashed into believing is the ideal of beauty. While she has low self esteem, she's an amazing nurse and a very strong woman who finds some different but loving men who ...more

I soooo adore this series! Every book is better than the last, even though that seems like an impossibility. This book was certainly no exception. It was absolutely phenomenal! I have come to love these characters so much. They are authentic and engaging, and beyond compelling. They draw you into the story like no other can. I have always had a soft spot for Arie, so I just loved seeing him finally find someone. He’s been through a lot, but Waverly really seems to get him. All of Waverly’s men ...more

Dark demise is part one of Waverly Sandler’s story. While this is a great addition to the Wings of Artemis series, I would strongly recommend reading the series in order. Waverly is the half-sister to the Sandler brothers (Paloma’s men). She was raised by the abusive Sandler father. It is quite charming to see this woman who believes herself undesirable blossom through the often awkward and humorous courting of the four men who desire her. The overall plot also moved forward the rebels battle ...more

A bit of time travel with reverse harem

I'm really not usually a fan of time travel. The idea of it seems messy to me. In this book, I love that the author explains potential ramifications, paradoxes, logically - or at least to the science of this series. I haven't read the others in the series, so I was happy to learn that they can stand alone in two book sets with character cameos in later books. I find it odd that the first two books in the series aren't available on KU but the rest are.

This series never gets old! Rebecca continues to enthrall us in this epic sci-fi series. What makes this one so special is that we already know the characters! There is always that wish to see other characters get their own story and Rebecca does not disappoint. However, she does keep us on our toes with new and eye opening revelations in this ongoing saga of battles to save the world from not one, but two power hungry factions. Which one is more evil? It's a toss up really. Of course following ...more

I have loved every female MC. But Waverly is my favourite now! I loved her heart and her strength and her kindness. And her very Sandler Trait of determination (or stubborness ) it broke my heart when she talked so matter of factly about being unnattractive. It wasn't wah wah wah im not pretty. And it broke me a little that it was so ingrained in her. Damn her evil father!

All the men were just so wonderful. Being exactly what she needed. And she completed them, healing their wounds and showing

I love the WOA series and this book is a great addition. The storyline continues and it’s excit as all get out!

It’s nice to see characters from previous books get their own stories, this is Waverley’s story. Being Sandlers daughter has meant that she has had a hard life, all she wants to do now is be a good nurse, enjoy her freedom and keep to herself, she was continually told she is ugly and worthless and feels she is destined to be alone but her secret crushes have other ideas

Waverly is by far my favorite of all the women in this series. I love that she is not traditionally beautiful on the outside but kind and smart and sweet and strong. I really felt for her with all of her insecurities believing that no one could ever love her. Then all of her men trying so hard to show her that she was beautiful and Waverly not really seeing that. I liked that we got to see a lot of things that happened in previous books in the series kind of came together here. This book was ...more

The first book in Waverly’s Story while it can be read separate from the other Wings of Artemis installments, I would still suggest reading them in order. Waverly has a quiet strength like Paloma(Loving Them) and Waverly’s story seems to have a similar sweet vibe to it. Dark Demise, as with all of Roy’s books, was well written and edited. This may be my favorite installment in the Wings of Artemis series. Though I did find the “bad guy” to be kind of predictable, the ending was enough to give me ...more

I have my strong woman that I look for in almost all books that I review. The author mentions at the beginning of the book that everything will not be completed in this book.

I liked Waverly, her strong character is all about caring, kindness and devotes herself to her nursing. Helping others is in her blood it's just something she was always meant to do.
Life at The Farm is about to get alot more interesting for Waverly as she starts fighting off the attention of four men. Each of them have a different way of trying to get her attention, looking out for her and protecting her. But it soon becomes clear that they need her more than they realise.
