To love a Dark One is to invite death...
It is wrong to love her.It is worse to want her.It is sin to consume her.I desire all three.
I've been given thirty days to prove my love to another immortal--as a human. Cursed to use nothing but the side of myself I've always despised to win her affection. I am Cassius, the King of the immortals, A Dark One.And today I tasted fear for the first time.How can I win her when my human emotions over take every ounce of logic I possess?A darkness is brewing.One I cannot stop as a human.One that Stephanie, my loves visions, have shown, will be my end.Thirty days ago I was King of the immortals.Today I know fear.Today I know how I will die.By her hand.The woman I love.

what i think

Untouchable Darkness is book two in the Dark Ones series. While Rachel says they are stand alones, I feel you MUST read them in order to really understand the world she has created! Untouchable Darkness jumps off right where The Dark Ones ended, focusing on Cassius and Stephanie. I loved finding out about Cassius’ past and how he became to be the man he is today. I also liked getting inside Stephanie’s head and understanding her a bit more. And, like most of RVD’s books, the supporting cast is PERFECT! Alex is the annoying/funny friend, Mason is the caring/funny friend, Ethan is the over protective friend, and Genesis is the human in a house of supernaturals! They all play off each other perfectly! I didn’t love Cassius and Stephanie as much as I loved Ethan and Genesis but their story was good. I am looking forward to Alex’s story! A Siren in love?!? Check out my FB page to get my thoughts as I was reading and some of the hilarious quotes that RVD delivers in every book she writes!


  • POV: Dual
  • Tears: No
  • Trope: Supernatural, Star Crossed Lovers
  • Triggers: None
  • Cliffhanger: Not for Cassius and Stephanie, but you are left wondering what will continue to happen in this world RVD has created!
