ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-24/4/18

So this was my first experience with this author and I am pleased to say I really enjoyed this first book in the "Project Artemis" series.
I found "Into The Darkness" to be really fast paced and you were immersed into the action right from the get-go.
The two main characters here were great, liked them both very much.
Persephone was a strong woman, totally unspoiled by her silver spoon upbringing.
I'm not quite sure how correct that would be in real-life

Two words when it comes to this story. Mind. Blown. I devoured it, honestly wishing there was more! This collaboration between Scott and Collins is utter perfection. You get passion but there is so much more to it. You get raw emotions, that are heartstopping and at times earth shattering as you navigate this journey that Persephone and Nick are thrown into. The one thing I absolutely loved about this story is Persephone. She is a real fighter and she does things in her own way. She doesn’t rely ...more

I can't wait for readers to get a hold of the Project Artemis novels because Anina Collins and I have loved writing them! If you love your heroes Alpha, your heroines strong, and your romance full of danger and suspense, then this is the series for you. :)

Eu não sei exatamente o que dizer sobre esse livro...

A princípio, achei a Persephone uma personagem forte. Consegui sentir uma simpatia por ela devido a tudo o que passou durante o tempo em que esteve cativa e a merce de seus sequestradores. No entanto, houve momentos em que suas atitudes me irritaram muito. Achei alguns de seus “chiliques” infantis demais, inadequados até. Mas por outro lado compreendi que a situação em si era de extremo stress, traumática e que não posso espera

In The Darkness which is the first installment of Project Artemis had me turning pages from the second I started it. I literally could not put my tablet down. There was mystery, there was heartache, there was twists and turns, but ultimately there was love. I absolutely enjoyed every second of this read and it was my first introduction to both of these authors. They collaborated beautifully. Some books you can tell which author has done what but this book absolutely flowed from first to last pag ...more

In The Darkness was a story that hit the ground running and never slowed down. It was the perfect beginning to what I truly believe will be an amazing new series, and I'm already addicted. I'm already in love with K.M. Scott's brilliant writing style, but haven't read Anina Collins before, but I know that they meshed together perfectly with this exciting story that kept my heart racing cover to cover. See, Persephone Gilmore comes from a family with lots of money, and while they aren't over bear ...more

Crystal's Book World ~ Crystal Cordova
After reading In The Darkness, I was left speechless and with a lot of thoughts running through my head. K.M. Scott is my go to author when I need something a little dark and a whole lot of sexy. When I say dark, I mean you come out of her book world a little bruised in the soul because of what the characters go through and the sacrifices they make. This is a co-written book by a new to me author Anina Collins. Together, these two authors bring a new series that I was sucked into right away.

"In The Darkness" is the first book in the Project Artemis series and all I can say is WOW, this series is starting off with a bang. This book grabbed me from the very first page and kept a hold on me until the last page was turned. The danger and suspense started off right there in chapter one, and had me squirming and holding my breath waiting to see what happened next.

This is the first book in a new series, starting off with tension and drama that caught my attention right away.

Persephone is a rich man’s daughter but not a pampered rich girl. Working as a nurse has exposed her to all walks of life and, unfortunately, the aftermath of all types of violence. Even all that experience could not have prepared her for this…

Nick is hired to rescue Persephone, another case in a career he is struggling to find fulfillment in. Nothing could have prepared him for her…

This is an amazing first book in the series Project Artemis where Persephone Gilmore, a nurse and the daughter of a wealthy man, Marshall Gilmore, was kidnapped by a terrorist group, National Equality Militia, in order to extort money from him to find their cause. Mr. Gilmore was working with the FBI and was getting no closer to finding her even though he paid the first ransom demand but they botched an attempt to catch the men in the ransom handoff.

I read this book in one day! It is suspenseful and romantic. The excitement starts on the very first page and it is fast paced through to the last page.

The characters are amazing. There is no meek, little woman in this story. The hero is handsome, sexy, confident, brave, smart, sensitive and has a good heart. The heroine, like the hero, is brave, smart and has a good heart. Together they are an unbeatable team.

The story is well told and held my interest for the entire book!

A suspense filled romantic mystery

I have loved every series by K M Scott. Anna Collins was new to me. Together they have written the beginning of a wonderful series. In The Darkness has everything, suspense, romance, and mystery. I love strong heroines and that is exactly what Persephone is. She is determined to get out of a bad situation and get her life back. Nick is her strong, sexy, alpha male hero. What a great start to the Project Artemis Series. Looking forward to reading what other wonde

Absolutely fantastic story! KM Scott and Anina Collins collaboration in this book is outstanding!

In The Darkness is the first book in the Project Artemis series. A project that was born after a traumatic experience for Persephone.

Kidnapped, bound and hurting, that's how Nick finds Persephone. She's extremely fragile but after so much time in captivity, she shows how strong she truly is.
Nick just need to save her and take her home, but sometimes its easier said than done and after some emotional

In The Darkness by KM Scott and Anina Collins was a fantastic read. It is the first book in the Project Artemis series. Nick, our hero, is sent in to rescue Persephone from her captors and he will do anything to protect her. Persephone is one of the strongest heroines I have come across. This book had my interest all the way to the end, I read it in one sitting. The romance and suspense had me from the start. I recommend this series and look forward to the next installment

Anina Collins is a new to me author, but I have loved reading K.M. Scott's work for a while. So, I knew I wanted to read this story. I am so glad I did and I am excited to go back and check out more of what I have missed from Anina.

This story had me on the edge of my seat, my breath catching, biting my nails. I so wanted to know what would happen next. It was suspenseful. It was heartbreaking. It was passionate. It was just an all around amazing start to a new series that I know I am going to e

In The Darkness by K.M. Scott and Anina Collins is an ABSOLUTE 5-scream must read!

Banshee Note: I have been going through an emotional rough patch, and far from my heart has been the desire to read. Admittedly this book took me a lot longer to read than it should have, especially with its fast-moving storyline, and its edge of the seat suspense.

This book took me away from my worries and woes and punched me in the gut at the same time. - Thank you K.M. and Anina for that, you don't know how much

Loved this new series. Action packed. With strong characters. Nick is hired by Persephone's wealthy father to save her from kidnappers. Yes, he's an alpha male, but she's a strong female who holds her own. The courage it takes to make it through the situation no matter what. Nick is there to save her but Persephone is right there with him. Her inner strength makes her a string character. Not a damsel waiting for her white knight to save her. Through everything they form a strong bond and a love ...more

Persephone is different. She is not a spoiled rich girl. She takes pride in helping others and what happens to her next will make up her mind of just how to do that.
Nick is an guardian angel sent to save her. And he does it in more ways than one.
Will their mission become a success or will it fail?
