"A Dark Kiss of Rapture" by Sylvia Day


SERIES: Renegade Angels #0.5

GENRE: Paranormal Romance
SOURCE: Freebie
LINKS: Goodreads

Of all the Fallen, Raze's hungers are some of the darkest and most insatiable. His brazen seductions cost him his wings, leaving him soulless and immortal, the most dangerous of seducers. He has roamed the earth for eons, hunting the rogues of his kind and protecting the humans who provide him with blood and sex. He is content with his life and the transient pleasures that flow through it... until one night and one woman change everything. Kimberly McAdams is smart, beautiful, and wealthy. She can have any man she wants, but the moment she sets eyes on the lethally stunning Raze she knows he's the man she needs. As one searingly erotic night burns into something deeper and far more vital than either of them expected, an adversary from Raze's past sees a chance for revenge. Twisted by hatred, she will take from Raze what was taken from her—the precious gift of love.


"Dark Kiss of Rapture" is a prequel to Sylvia Day's Renegade Angels series. I have to admit that I haven't read "A Touch Of Crimson", the first novel of this series, but even so I really enjoyed this novella. Most of times it's difficult to get into a book when it's very short, but the way I see it, sometimes you can be very pleased to see how it can be so easy to be fascinated by less pages but the right choice of words and some pretty cool scenes.

Fallen Angels have never been my faves, but if you put them as vampires, like Raze, they can damn be my cherry on top! There's a great sensuality between Raze and Kim but even a lovely tenderness, and it's easy to find yourself often in a dreamless state...

This prequel definitely left me with a great curiosity to know more about this paranormal world full of angels, vampires and lycans!

RATING: 3.5/5
