    " This was a really good book if you like books about vampires. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series. This was the first book I read by MacAlister, but I am definately going to read more of her books. She is an excellent writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christa | 2/16/2014

    " won't read anymore "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emilyn | 2/13/2014

    " Spicy vampire paranormal romance. Not completely convinced by the relationship between Pia and Kristoff and found the internal conflict Pia had not convincing at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 C | 2/3/2014

    " I feel like this series is going downhill. I actually did like Pia in this book, but her personality is similar, though not exactly the same, as the other heroines. This series feels like if you've read one, you've read them all. I'm not sure why I'm still reading on, except that the books are pretty easy reading, and still fairly entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hasien | 1/31/2014

    " Re-read. This installment is just hilarious to me. It really is like Hitchcock's North by Northwest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Karas | 1/27/2014

    " Love it. Action, suspense, comedy and drama! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaine | 1/23/2014

    " Just finished this and had never read any of this series now i need the others! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leigh | 1/9/2014

    " I can't say I liked this book much. I like Katie Mac and all, but I'm a little tired of her heroines obsessing about a few extra pounds for the ENTIRE book. Pia just came off as whiny and I didn't care much for her at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Morgan griggs | 12/22/2013

    " this is the first book from the dark one series that i've read and it makes me want to start at book 1 cant wait to read them all. I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/18/2013

    " Light and fun - recommended for chicklit and contemporary romance fans who want to try paranormal but aren't ready for crazy sex and graphic violence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyn | 10/24/2013

    " I adore Katie's style of writing. It always makes for an entertaining read. Only downside to this book is that the story didn't end completely. I now need to read Crouching Vampire, Hidden Fang to find out what happens with Pia, Alec and Kristoff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kohana | 10/17/2013

    " By far one of my favorite of Katie's girl's. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana Manos | 10/14/2013

    " snappy and sizzling. A good fast read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhianna | 10/10/2013

    " Loved this book! If you're anything like me...go ahead and pick up book # 7: Crouching Vampire, Hidden Fang. Her stories normally work themselves out in one book...but this one took two books to smooth things over. It nearly killed me to wait a whole year. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vincent Darlage | 4/30/2013

    " Reasonably enjoyable book. Nice sex scenes. Character development was a little thin. Interesting that the main female lead was overweight (who is the girl on the cover?), but I am not sure what the title has to do with the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 PastAllReason | 3/5/2013

    " Great beginning for a new series by Katie MacAlister. I was sorry when it ended, and am looking forward to the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 8/30/2012

    " A little different than the other Dark One books I've read, but I did like it. Some people don't like serials, but I do--it gives one an opportunity to see a character grow and change. It's sequel is #7 in the series and I'm looking forward to reading it soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penny | 6/20/2012

    " Absolutely loved it!!! I can't wait to read the next book to find out what happens with Pia and her Dark One!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 3/30/2012

    " Totally trashy, but fun. I liked it despite its fluffiness. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennie | 2/22/2012

    " What can I say? This book had a plot line that moved right along, a ghost horse and a heavy dose of gratuitious sex. Thanks, Katie MacAlister! I will be seeking out more of these books when my brain needs a vacation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laela | 12/14/2011

    " I love the Dark Ones series, and the ending was so heart renching that I can't wait to get my hands on the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 12/10/2011

    " This book is at times laugh out loud funny and at other times it will make you cry. Lots of twists and turns before the mystery all comes clear, it will keep you on your toes guessing what will happen next. I read it in one sitting, I couldn't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie Owens | 8/2/2011

    " This was a fun book from Katie Mcalister. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tysheena | 7/4/2011

    " Katie MscAlister is a quirky author. I love the fact that she had me laughing through most of this entire book. This was a fun read, a breather from more serious books alike in this genre. Also the romance element in this book will have you cheerleading from the sidelines. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate Moffatt | 5/10/2011

    " I heart Katie MacAlister's books! And this one was fantastic, bring on the next book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaya | 5/5/2011

    " These are cute light reads. They won't haunt you when your done but they will make you laugh while reading them! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 3/30/2011

    " I had no idea until I entered this book in Goodreads that this is #7 in a series! I did listen to the one before it, and this series is not nearly as engaging to me as her Green Dragon Series. It's much more stilted in writing style, and seems to be trying too hard. It was still fun, however.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Desiree | 2/1/2011

    " This one was pretty funny and was another one of the vampire books with ghost, liches, and a bunch of other mythical stuff mixed in. I liked that the heroine in the book did not have a perfect body and had insecurities about her body, mostly thats because I feel about myself most days. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendi | 2/1/2011

    " This edition dragged on and I just couldn't compell myself to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynnette | 1/26/2011

    " Vampire chick lit what more do I have to say..... Cute series - light and a quick read! I found myself giggling out loud several times. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Crystal | 1/21/2011

    " I don't know why I keep doing this to myself. I want to like this books, why I don't know but I find myself reading them even though I continually hate them. The only good thing I can say about this book is that it was better than the last one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 1/7/2011

    " Not sure why I talked myself into reading this one since I was not that into the first book, but it's not a bad story, I just didn't get into it. Thought maybe the second would be better.. And it was after half way into it. I can see where others like it.. but it's just not the right fit for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrissy | 12/29/2010

    " This one was pretty good! Much better than #6 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LeeAnn | 12/25/2010

    " Enjoying this. I started it last night. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 12/22/2010

    " This was the continuing installment to Zen and The Art of Vampires and it was every bit as enjoyable and also had just as much erotica as in the first book. Still, it was a good spin on the whole vampire craze. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amelia-Irene | 12/12/2010

    " Part of the Dark Ones series, I enjoyed it - not as much as others in this series, but I am glad that I read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie | 12/3/2010

    " Not as good as the first of the two-part arc, but still good, trashy fun. "
