I was actually confused on what should I rate this. Yes I can't wait to read the next one but I also found myself skimming a bit with this one. I say this one was more like 4.5 stars. Towards the ending she dragged it out a bit I wish she didn't. I wished we knew more why her mother chose to trap her.

Ava can be so childish and reckless at times. It hurts Jasik he just wants her to be happy with him. Unfortunately she is always thinking about her witch family. Her witch family that has stabbed he

Sadly I’m DNFing this at 65%

The first book wasn’t bad at all, but it had been downward slope since then. Each book is so repetitive, like she pays the gargoyles head and redescribed every single room in each book and I’m honestly just so bored and don’t even care about the story anymore. I’m so annoyed. They had potential but I can’t get past the writing sadly.

Lets be real, i am absolutely loving this series. For me it is just so capitavating and i think the series as a whole so far is a solid 5 stars. And what a cliff hanger.... i mean i really did not see that coming!

So why did i want to give this book 3 stars? I have a bit of a gripe with the formatting of this series.
Firstly i want to point out that i don't limit myself with my budget for books. They are my life and i will continue to support authors, Danielle Rose included. However, despite what

In the third installment of the Darkhaven saga, the witches have arrived at the vampire's doorstep to ask Ava for help in finding her best friends. She's been taken.

But there's something not right about this. Ava has had a foreboding vision that this could be a trap. She doesn't know if it is or if she misinterpreted the vision.

As much as she wants to help them, she is forbidden from doing so. She has to turn her back on the witches and embrace what she's become...a vampire.

The question is: I

Woah... So starting this saga was a risk for me. I hadn't ventured into this genre much in the past but with each book in the Darkhaven saga, I seem to fall in love with the story, the characters, the author's ability to suck me into a plot filled with mystery and suspense.

In book three. Ava starts to feel like she finally belongs with the vampires, she's learning what it means to be a hybrid, but when her best friend ends up going missing, she is stuck on how to let go of her past when someone

Waterhouse Press kindly sent me a copy of Dark Promise and I am extremely thankful that they did! This series just gets better with each book. Dark Promise left off with some crazy things happening and I really need to know what happens next! In this book you really see how too trusting Ava is. It keeps getting her into trouble and she needs to get that under control. I still love her character but she can make some stupid mistakes sometimes. The slow burn romance in this book is making me screa ...more

Not going to lie the ending of this book made me so mad. I can't believe Ava would be so head strung that she'd walk herself into a trap like that. Just when her and Jasik were getting closer too. I wonder if Amicia can feel that the oath has been severed? Gah Danielle better fix this in Dark Spell or I'm going to scream. I love this series. I can't wait to see what happens next with Ava and Darkhaven. ...more

Last book left us with Liv in danger. Ava feels compelled to help free her. Liv was her best friend before Ava turned vampire and she feels a connection to her, even if it’s not reciprocated. She can’t stand the thought of Liv possibly dying at the hands of Rogues and is desperately trying to figure out how to save her.
Amica is the head of the vampire nest. She is trying to protect Ava and makes her swear a blood oath. This will prevent Ava from searching for Liv alone. She makes her do this be ...more

This is the third book in the Darkhaven Saga and it is not a standalone. Each book seems to just get better and better pulling readers into a labyrinth of intrigue and suspense. This book sees Ava finally finding her place in the world again but she is unable to truly let go of the ties that bind her to her past. It does not help matters when her former coven comes to ask for her assistance in finding her best friend who is missing. However, she is bound to her new life and although painful, she ...more

Dark Promise pulls you in and gives you all you expected and more. Ava is finally feeling at home with the vampires, she has a sense of belonging she feels loved and comfortable with them and feels comfortable with herself that for once she is not having to do things out of obligation, but out of loyalty and want. Yet, her need to help those who are in danger or suffering is her downfall and weakness and the witches of her old coven who she still feels a strong bond to use that to their advantag ...more

I do not have words for this one. The story just gets better with each installment.

Ava faces more than one difficult decision that can change everything for her. Her best friend from childhood is missing, according to the witches. She doesn’t know if she can trust them, after all the rejections and hate.

One of the Vampires, that are part of her nest, made her do a DARK PROMISE. A Dark Promise that she needs to keep a secret.

Finding Liv can be the key to get the witches to trust her and the vamp

Ava is trying to accept that the witches want nothing to do with her but then they show up at the manor saying they need her help to find Liz. Amica says no as a way to force Ava’s hand and to try and cut ties from them. Things get weird when Ava visits the astral plane and realizes there is another vampire like her when there shouldn’t be. Will is a hybrid just like Ava who seems like he might be able to give her some answers. Things don’t go as planned and quickly escalate. I will say I did no ...more

Ava story continues in Dark Promise. Her former coven wants her help rescuing Liv but her vampire family says she must choose. A dark promise made with Amecia prevents her from trying to find Liv. Ava will find herself in the battle of her life, is she strong enough to win?

This is a great addition to the Darkhaven Saga. This series has thrown so many changes into Ava’s life as she is coming into adulthood. Danielle has done an amazing job of making us feel all of Ava’s emotions as she finds her

OMFG sooooooo much has happened in this third installment of the Darkhaven saga and I am on the edge of my couch! Literally! The betrayal, questioning loyalties, choosing sides- Ava has so much going on and to have this happen as she is getting more comfortable with being a hybrid and finally like she belongs is just too much! Add on top of that a romance we're all screaming to happen already. Danielle has really captured me with this series and I don't even know if 5 books will be enough to tel ...more

Dark Promise takes this series to another level! Each book is filled with new plot twists and surprises that I never see coming. Just when Ava is starting to feel comfortable with her new vampire coven, she discovers that her best friend has disappeared. Torn between the pain of how the witches have recently treated her, there's still nothing she wouldn't do for Liv. Definitely read each book in order, but hang on for a ride into a world that will have your head spinning. Beautifully written wit ...more

Wow!! This series just keeps getting better and better!! We were left anxiously waiting for Dark Promise to see what happened next and it was worth the wait.

Ava is finally getting comfortable with the vampires and that she's a hybrid. There's so much going on in this book, like another hybrid and a missing friend, that you don't want to put it down. You're just going to have to read this amazing book to find out.

Danielle Rose is an amazing author!! I love this series and the story she's tellin

I am still really enjoying this series!! In Dark Promise I did want to shake Ava though. I do have to remind myself she still has a teenager mind set and not to be too harsh on her. The bond between Ava and Jasik continues to strengthen I just hope this new found information doesn't start to destroy their bond. I am still not a major fan of Amica, but I am still trying to figure out if we are meant to like this specific character or not. I struggled to put this book down and I am on the edge of ...more

Amazing! Ava is in a personal journey to find out who she is and how she fits into her new world. She meets several new people and has to figure out her own path in her new life. She has meant trials and tribulations to get through. She has to navigate who to trust and who to be weary of. It is very hard for her to give up on her coven for her nestmates. She grows a lot but is still a child in some regards

Wow! I can not believe the new twist the story has taken. I did not see these things coming what so ever. I expected to get more about Ava and Jasik, which we did get a bit more, but it left me wanting more. A total page turner and just plain out addicting series. I am counting the days for the next book.

I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Danielle Rose has done it again! I didn't see this cliffhanger coming. Will comes to Ava in a dream. He's just like her. Half witch and half vampire. He's stronger than Ava and wants to help her find her friend Liv. But she has to leave her coven and Jasik. Will she find Ava or lead herself and Will to their peril. This part of the saga ends on an incredible cliffhanger. ...more

Dark promise is exactly that, a promise to want to know more. Available has been fighting with understanding the magic within. When a mysterious person comes in, it starts to make more sense.

I am not usually one who reads young adult books, but I have been hooked on the Darkhaven series since I first started it. Dark Promise sucked me in just like the previous books and didn’t let go. I read it in one sitting! I loved it and can’t wait to read more.
