By Dannika Dark
Love is infinite.
Hate is absolute.

Logan Cross went from her mortal enemy to her immortal lover, but a threat is fast approaching like an inevitable storm.

In the midst of chaos, Silver discovers she cannot protect everyone from the wrath of fate, including her own Ghuardian.
Justus finally opens his heart, but an unexpected turn of events could darken his soul forever. Secrets are revealed that will leave you reeling from one twist after the next. Would you sacrifice everything for love?
Destiny has set sail and once she alters her course, no one’s life will ever be the same in this explosive conclusion to the Mageri Series.

A deep vibration rose from his chest. Logan backed me up and the next thing I knew, I was lying on the hood of Justus’s sleek Porsche. What was once a vast collection of exquisite cars was now a collection of three, aside from the Ducati, which he rarely drove.
Logan’s ravenous tongue found a sensitive spot on my neck that made me crave his skin against mine. I slipped my hands beneath his shirt, scratching at his strong back. I loved the way his body felt. The taut muscles along his abs, the baby-fine hair on his arms and legs, the masculine cut of his jaw, and especially right now, the thick press between my legs. The hood of the car dented from our weight and Logan’s heated breath stirred a voice within me that wanted to say “to hell with it” and have sex right on top of my Ghuardian’s one-hundred-thousand-dollar Porsche.
“Wait, Logan. We’re going to mess up his car.”
When his tongue entered my mouth, the complaint was forgotten.
Until the garage door lifted up.
Review - 5 STARS
I've been struggling with getting into just about anything I pick up. It's the reader's version of writer's block. Then Shine came out. Did I buy it as soon as I heard? Absolutely. Did I read it right away? Surprisingly, no. Because of my Reader's Writer's Block, I was terrified I'd start it and just not be into it. Guess what? It's the last book of the Mageri series! OF COURSE I WAS INTO IT! I can still remember when I came across this series by happenstance, and was sold by the cover art. Since the end of Sterling, Dannika Dark easily found a slot in my top 5 favorite authors, and by the end of Twist, she solidified slot one. I have a paperback edition of Seven Years from her newest series, and I'll be sinking my teeth in as soon as possible.
Dannika Dark poured her heart into the end of this series. I could tell with every turned page that she mourned for her little family as much as her fans did. There were moments in Shine that I thought may have been a slight miss, but then I sat back and examined the whole picture, and realized there is nothing different I could think of that would improve the scene. Dannika also perfected the closing of this story. I've seen authors struggle with ending a series without leaving too many loose ends. There were things that were unfinished, but they were unfinished because life goes on.
A big thank-you to Ms. Dark for a fabulous journey with this series. IF YOU HAVE NOT READ IT YET, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU'RE MISSING! Go grab a copy and enjoy Silver's story with the rest of us Magerites (or whatever we are).
About the Author
This is the segment where you learn a little more about who I am, so here's what I can tell you: I drink copious amounts of vitamin water placed precariously close to my laptop while writing. These are two healthy habits I have no intention of breaking. I'm a transplant living in the south, but I was born in the 70's to a military dad who moved us around the world.
When I'm not writing (which is all the time), I'm hunting down Indie music, watching movies, reading, eating Tex-Mex, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the Internet. I have a relaxed, easy-going personality and don't like drama. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I'm not sure which).
Throughout my life, I've had insomnia. Counting sheep never worked and eventually I would imagine those sheep were the sole source of food after an apocalyptic battle where only thousands survived. I made up stories in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I got so wrapped up in my "head stories" that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down - creating short stories, and then I discovered my love for poetry.
It's almost embarrassing how many spiral notebooks and stacks of paper I have of poetry and lyrics.
Another passion: digital art. I design all my book covers, marketing, and series art. I'm a very visual person and pursued photography as an avid hobby for many years.
I am not a YA author (I feel like I have to state this only because I've had a few people ask), but I think it's wonderful there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal.
I am finally doing what I have always wanted to do: giving my characters a pulse through writing full time. I focus on adult urban fantasy romance, but I don't like labels and I enjoy blending genres to break out of the confines of predictability.
But it's what I love to do.
