Darkness Undone by Jessa Slade

Sidney Westerbrook is out to prove himself to his father, a Bookkeeper for the Marked in London and is all set to take over as London’s bookkeeper as soon as his father steps down. He comes to Chicago for some research but the Chicago team seems to really not want him there. They sense he has his own agenda.

But when he is unexpectedly attacked by lesser demons in a Chicago alley, he is rescued by a talya named Alyce who does not know who or what she is. But he knows what she is and how she became what she is. This would be quite the accomplishment for him to turn her in, but he can't help but wonder why he is so drawn to her. He has been trained to turn his emotions off and he doesn't want to change that now for a demon-possessed talya girl.

Darkness Undone is an enthralling gritty urban fantasy novel with tons of action and romance. This is the first book I have read by Jessa Slade and since it is the fourth book in a series I admit I had to play a little catch up in this novel. But it didn’t take long to get a grasp on things and get sucked into this powerful story. I didn’t know whether I was attracted to Sidney, hated him, or just wanted to kiss him with a quick slap to follow. I loved the intense romance and forbidden lust and couldn’t help but fall in love with Jessa’s wit she construes throughout the book. I am a newly devoted fan and will be trying out some of her other books.

I would highly recommend this book to urban fantasy and paranormal romance fans. Especially if you like action, twists, and a hot couple that isn’t supposed to be together.

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.
