Blog Tour Review & Giveaway!- Prowled Darkness (Dante's Circle, #7) by Carrie Ann Ryan

prowled blogtour
Title:  Prowled Darkness (Dante's Circle, #7)
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Publication Date: May 10th 2016
Plot:  Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes? 

Eliana Sawyer’s life was rocked from its foundation twice in as many years. She risked her heart and had it shattered into a thousand pieces when Malik left her with no warning. While she’d normally raise her chin and ignore the pain, she can’t forget what he gave her before he disappeared from her life. 

Malik Ward is a prince amongst the lion shifters and knows that one day he will have to take a mate. Only, his people can never mate with humans. Under the mistaken impression that Eliana was only human, he forced himself to leave before they’d crossed a line and he broke his vow to his people. Now that he knows the truth about Eliana, however, it will take more than groveling to win back the one woman fated to be his.

While Eliana and Malik embark on a new sensuous path that might lead to disaster, the realms aren’t ready to allow the final lightning-struck human to be enveloped into their fold. The couple will have to combat those plotting against them, as well as the broken promises and heated emotions they share. 

Warning: Contains a Leo with a bite that’s worse than his roar, a woman with one last chance at the life she’s always dreamt of, a flame that could extinguish with the wrong sacrifice, and the final journey in the bestselling Dante’s Circle series.

In entirety, this read was just okay in my book. For me, everything felt rushed, the writing was ehhh??- and I kind of wished certain things were expanded a bit more. I'm not saying that I was dissatisfied in the execution of everything. I wasn't. I just would have liked things to slow down and to have seen both Malik and Eliana's characters more fleshed out and see them individually and as a couple grow.

The supernatural twist to this plot line was interesting~~ what with what Eliana's supernatural animal is and how it now plays a factor with her not being a lioness and mated to the next in line to the lion throne. Not to mention, a cute revelation revealed at the very beginning of the book and how it changes up the dynamics for both characters.

I won't go into more details of the story. It was all around a fun and sexy read about love, family, friendship, second chances, taking what's yours and claiming your place, and expecting the unexpected in the supernatural world.

Not bad, not bad. :)
My Rating:

There were times in a man’s life when he felt like he held the world in his hands. There were times where that man could conquer that world and know instinctively what to do with the life it held. 
This was not one of those times. 
Malik Ward wanted to throw up, even though he didn’t have a thing in his stomach. Or maybe yell at someone until he was so red in the face he couldn’t speak. Perhaps hit someone so he could feel bone smash against bone. Or maybe, just maybe, go down to his knees in front of the woman who carried his child and beg for forgiveness. 
As Malik was in line for the lion throne and a Ward, the latter wouldn’t be happening. 
If he were anything less than the lion he was, he’d have tucked his tail between his legs and walked out of the bar as quickly as he’d come in. But he wasn’t that kind of man, and now he had to face the consequences of his decisions. 
And what consequences they were. 
 About the Author 

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.
Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
