1. Blood Dark by Lindsay J Pryor

Blood Dark Cover

Blood Dark is the fifth book in the Blackthorn series. You need to read the first four before you settle in for Blood Dark to better understand the world of Blackthorn and it’s residents. Those are:

Blood Shadows

Blood Roses

Blood Torn

Blood Deep

All of which are badass!

Lindsay is one of my all time favourite authors, she weaves incredibly intricate stories and has created a dark and thoroughly delicious and disturbed world called Blackthorn.

Stories of vampires, lycans and witches have been done many times in the past, and many seem to blur into one. NOT Blackthorn! In the world of paranormal romance Blackthorn shines. It’s a whole new world ripe for the taking and is certainly the world you should be picking!

It also has to be said how incredible Lindsay is with her fans. She is thankful to each and every person who loves her stories and  personally thanks everyone of them often! Lindsay not only is an amazing author she is an inspirational woman.


“There are guardian angels, and there are monsters with wings.”

Caitlin Parish should have been the last person to fall for a vampire. A member of the Vampire Control Unit, her relationship with master vampire Kane Malloy had explosive consequences. Caitlin’s colleagues count her as the enemy. And now she’s going back.

Kane has made powerful enemies of his own – and is being targeted by the head of the Global Council, Sirius Throme. With the stakes higher than ever before, Kane knows caring for Caitlin makes him vulnerable. Worse, her decision to return to VCU feels like betrayal.

With Throme threatening to tear Blackthorn apart, and the prophesied vampire leader finally revealed, Kane and Caitlin must both fight with everything they have to stop an all out war. But they’re fighting on opposite sides…

Right when she needs him most, Caitlin makes a shocking discovery about Kane. Has he been playing her all along? And can she trust him with her life when he won’t even trust her with the truth?

The choice Caitlin makes will change the game in Blackthorn forever.
