I have a secret, and beneath the dark skies it might just be our only hope. If I'm not killed for it, first.

The dark skies are upon the light realm, stealing away the sun and even the moon. In total blackness, all hope seems lost, and sight is stolen.

Skye Nightwood tries to outrun the dark skies, but when two dark princes invade her home isle, she realises just how far

Oh how creepy this one is. What if it's not aliens or angels that cause the Apocalypse, but the fae? And what kind of beings are they that have taken over the world once ruled (and ruined) by men?

In this opener, we meet Skye the half-fae, illegitimate daughter born into part of the Light Land royal family. Politics in the realms are as uncertain as her family dynamics. We meet parents, siblings, cousins (a frighteningly familiar face or two if you've read The Prince's Prisoner) and the like as

The skies are dark, and so are the whims of the Unseelie royals. Skye's got herself a bit of a princeling sandwich going on. I'm not a natural reverse harem reader but this one's context is a dark fae culture that's as eyebrow-raising but logical as it sounds. Casual cruelty and creepy plottings abound, and not just from those you'd expect.

Whether you're here for twisted fae politics or the scandalous reverse harem, it's safe to say this short episode is still *ahem* full steam ahead.

Dark Fae

This series opener is just the beginning of the story. It is told from the pov of the mc, Skye, a fae/human halfling who is the daughter of fae royalty. The dark fae of the Northern Kingdom have defeated and subjugated the humans who have polluted and destroyed the Earth. They are now pushing against the light fae's borders, just as the lightling queen of the Southern Queendom is forced to abdicate the throne. The Queen has called a meeting of family heads, but what does it all mean?

“Dark Skies 1” is a short reverse harem romance that packs enough of a punch to keep you eager to start on the next book in the series. The storyline is interesting and the characters are endearing and authentic. Ready to start on book 2!

This is book 1 to the dark skies series.

It introduces Skye who is half human and half fae.

Dark Fae 2

This KU library selection is a continuation of the serial and is about the occupation and "negotiations" after the dark fae have taken the Light Queendom. Skye is a blood relative of the queen, who is stepping down, but Skye thought herself to be ineligible for consideration to ascend to the throne because she's half human. Now there are only two candidates left, and she's one of them. And there's a caveat.

A Quick Read

This KU library selection is the conclusion of the Dark Skies trilogy. Skye is facing the most difficult time of her life and her choices will have far reaching consequences. This book and the series as a whole gets three and a half stars.
The individual books in the series are not standalones.

This is one of those very few books which are short, sweet, interesting, intriguing and complete. The one thing I loved most about the book was that it didn't keep on jumping from character to character and telling their perspective or what happened to them.

The one thing that I perhaps found a little odd, the ending climax was brutally short. It could have been better played out.

This is one dark fantasy bad romance. It's a short, quick read, not so much sweet as steamy and chock with fae plotting and politics. Skye's narration, all casual cruelty marking her as something other than human, really drew me in. The world building is on point in getting across so much in so few words. While steam isn't my thing, the story, characters and creepy tone kept me hooked. My only complaint would be that I wish it were longer to *ahem* flesh things out a little more.

“Dark Skies” is a dark, suspenseful tale with undertones of apocalyptic disasters. The writing is superb and dark; the characters are interesting and evil. Each book is a continuation from the previous book with a compelling storyline that flows seamlessly from book 1 into book 3. This is a tale that will keep you engaged from start to finish. There's action, drama, danger, suspense, twist/turns, enemies, survival, intrigue, humor, mystery/secrets, surprises, family, fear, anger, conflict, ...more

Oh how dark. And that's without the shadow fae taking over the skies. The claustrophobic "romance" and family intrigues come together to make a zippy paced but rounded story. Loved that it was a reverse harem with actual original story and one hell of a world building setup for such a short serial. RH doesn't have to be just about love and/or sex (although, y'know, more sexy times do occur).

Skye's not a romantic, hence this being more of a dark (but importantly, consensual) relationship thing

Klarissa is a master at writing fantasy that you will love. Her stories hold so much intrigue, love and honesty in her work. Fae are always interesting but klarissahas a take on the fae world that you will find refreshing and will fall in love with. The adventure she takes us on will be one you'll want to re read it all over again. Dark skies is one of my favourite works from klarissa king and trust me, after reading this, you'll be searching kindle to find more of her work. Absolutely ...more

This collection of paranormal stories captured my attention. Skye wants to keep her throne but to do that she must marry a dark fae prince. That’s not what she wants so she goes on a journey to save her kingdom and stay away from the dark fae. These characters are intriguing and the twists kept me reading.

When not writing, Klarissa can be found in bed poring over a great new release, or reluctantly walking her demanding dogs who pretty much run the house.

She is not-so-secretly the writer, Isla Jones. Isla uses the pen-name Klarissa for fantasy and writing, while using Isla Jones for her darker, grittier horror works.
