Review: Darkness Undone (Warlords of Empyrea #1) by Georgia Lyn Hunter

The Blurb
A fading realm, a warrior bound, and the woman who will save them both…

Bound to a vengeful goddess, immortal warrior, Reynner, has little time for the fairer sex. The last thing he wants is to be aligned with another female, even if she is the key to finding an artifact and saving his realm. But his stone-cold resistance is tested, his attraction undeniable for the feisty mortal, until she demands the one thing he cannot give her…his trust.

Eve Leighton keeps away from intimacy of any sort after an accident in her teens left her with a painful ability to see into another’s mind through physical contact. When an ice-cold warrior claims she is his world’s savior, she’s intrigued, until she dares a look into his soul and sees a man who’s been cruelly betrayed. She agrees to help him and loses her heart. But the man is an unassailable fortress. With quiet determination, she chips away his barriers and a passion darker than night pulls them under.

As his enemies close in on the hunt for the artifact, Reynner must overcome his own personal demons as battles are fought to claim the woman he loves or lose her forever. And Eve has to face her own mortality and fight for a love of a lifetime. 

My Review
Ms. Hunter has gotten me addicted to another one of her series. What I loved the most about this book was that she merged characters (I will always love the Archangel) from her Guardian series into this one. Keeping the world she built consistent, yet different by adding new scenes and amazing characters.  

Of course both Eve and Reynner were broken, in more ways than one. It’s their amazing journey to fixing themselves that had me turning the pages to find out what would happen next. Numerous challenges were thrown at this couple, but they kept persevering.

I love a strong heroine in my novels. Eve epitomized one and I kept rooting for her. Reynner was a tad bit possessive for my liking, but after going through hell and back, I could see how once he’d decided he was worthy of love, why he’d hold onto it with such verve.

A wonderful fantasy romance that can be read as a stand-alone. I can’t wait to see who I’ll read about next in the series.

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

I give this book five out of five human sculpture shaped chocolate bars.

The book can be purchased at Amazon.


  1. Damn this book sounds like an amazing dark read. Can see why you rated it a 5 just by the blurb alone. Mercy.

    1. I absolutely love reading your comments Sheena-Kay. You are so insightful with them.

  2. Thanks, Nana, for your awesome review!!
    I'm so glad you enjoyed it :)

  3. Great review! Love it when broken characters are able to grow and push ahead like Eve and Reynner seem to. I also think it's refreshing how this book can stand on its own, despite belonging to a series. Makes checking a new one out less daunting!

  4. Great review and I totally agree. I'll have mine up shortly too!!!


I love reading your comments.
