Urban Fantasy Review: Darkness Shatters by Susan Illene

Darkness Shatters by Susan Illene (The Sensor #5)

Ecopy thanks to the author

Synopsis from Goodreads

Book 5 of the Sensor Series

Winter has come to Alaska and it’s about to be joined by death.

Since moving to Fairbanks, Melena Sanders has watched too many of her friends die because she couldn’t react fast enough. When a mysterious illness comes along targeting only supernatural races she’s determined to stop it. But as the death toll climbs she realizes finding a cure is more complicated than she thought. Melena might have to give in to plans to reveal the existence of supernaturals to the human world—as it may be the only way to save them.

What an ending, ladies and gents! Melena is in trouble... *grinning* ... and so is everybody else!

If you remember last book, Ariel forced Melena to keep silence about Micah, so for most of this book our girl is hopelessly watching Lucas fly from one end of the country to another, torturing bad guys in order to find out where his brother is being hidden. Lucas is suffering, Melena is suffering and as a result they spend very little time together.

At the same time, supernatural plague threatens to destroy some of Melena's dearest and most beloved people while there is frantic search around the globe for the cure. Lots and lots happens in this book, and this time the events affect all the supernatural community for years to come.

I know some people did not like the fact that there was so little interaction between Melena and Lucas, but whatever moments they stole together were some quality time. And by quality I mean HOT. *fans herself* I also enjoyed reading Lucas POV, and I especially loved that Melena's sensible actions prevented major schism between this couple which could have easily happened to a less levelheaded heroine.

Verdict? Very good, dynamic urban fantasy. Recommended, and I can't wait to see what happens next. Also, Kerbasi should get his own book. He is such a walking disaster, and yet I can't help but love him.

Что за концовка, дамы и господа! Мелена вляпалась в неприятности по уши! *смеясь* Но и все остальные тоже.

Если вы помните книгу предыдущую, то Ариэль наложила заклинание молчания на Мелену, и теперь та в бессилии смотрит как Люкас мотается по всему миру, подвергая пыткам многочисленных злодеев в поисках своего брата, когда она точно знает, что Мика в безопасности и скрывается от Люкаса намеренно. Люкас страдает, Мелена страдает, и как результат, парочка проводит вместе очень мало времени.

В то же время знакомый нам злодей насылает чуму на паранормальных существ по всему миру, и Мелена чуть ли не теряет самых близких ей людей и с ног сбивается пытаясь найти панацею.

В этой книге происходит очень много событий, затрагивающих паранормальных существ в общем и на долгие годы. Я знаю, что многие читатели жаловались, что отношениям между Люкасом и Меленой было посвящено очень мало времени, но! Здесь важно не количество, а качество. И под качеством я имею в виду очень горячие сексуальные сцены *смеясь и обмахиваясь веером* 

Мне также очень импонировало, что хладнокровие главной героини позволило ей избежать глубокого разрыва отношений с Люкасом, потому как она поставила на первое место их как пару, а не теоретический мир во всём мире.

В общем, динамичное городское фэнтези, рекомендую. А Кербаси вообще нужна своя книга, жалко терять такой колоритный характер!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
