Born To Darkness by Suzanne Brockmann

Set in an undisclosed time in the future, the world is a very dark place. Corporate government is the elite, and there is a group of people, the Greater Thans, who have the ability to use their brains at a new level, super powers. It has also been discovered that those who find their soul mate intensify their powers into turbo.

In BORN TO DARKNESS, Mac Mackenzie believes herself to be tough. She uses her Greater Than ability to manipulate men into falling for her. When she meets ex-navy seal Shane Laughlin in a bar one night, she doesn’t mind in the least spending the night with him. What she doesn’t expect is Shane falling in love with her. She can’t believe anyone would really want to be with her. She has some security issues and if she doesn’t deal with them soon, she may lose the only guy who really matters.

Mac and Shane are the main two characters in this dark, gritty urban fantasy, but there are also two other relationships that develop with supporting characters. Brockmann does a good job of building all three relationships separately so the reader can come to know them, but also weaving them together in their fight against the evil plans that the corporate government has in store for them all.

With building tension and sizzling hot romance, compelling and diverse characters and a unique, chilling new world, BORN TO DARKNESS is a page-turning read you won’t want to miss! Alpha characters who aren’t afraid to seek what they want, real personal issues that bring the characters to life and a dangerous new world, BORN TO DARKNESS is action-packed and destined to shine!

  1. This was a great story that demonstrates all of the reason that Suzanne Brockmann is adored for the dexterity with which she creates an intense tale peopled by realistic characters tempered in impossible situations. Each of the main characters has been trained to be efficient fighters both physically and mentally yet they all have their individual strengths and weaknesses. The loneliness inherent in being different from most of those around you is one of the prices being willingly paid by these heroes who are willing to back up their beliefs with their very lives. The action is riveting, the premise behind the series is intriguing and the romance is irresistible...what more can you ask for? Hurry with the next story, can't wait for more tales of these charismatic people.


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
