Review: Kiss of Twilight ARC by Loribelle Hunt

At the Other End:

Dupree Jackson is everything a senior soldier of the Order of Templar should be. Cold. Unbreakable. A master at arms in the fight against demons. But as a hybrid, Dupree is beginning to lose himself to the demon half of his soul. One woman has the power to save him. If he lets her.

Kara Stone wants two things in life: to be merged with a demon so that she can become a full member of the Order; and Dupree Jackson. She knows they are meant to be together, if only Dupree would love her back.

Though his desire for Kara is undeniable, Dupree's need to protect her is stronger. Not wanting to see her merge, to face the internal struggle he deals with every day, he refuses to bond with her. But when Kara becomes a target and uncovers a dark secret about her past, Dupree may no longer have a choice...
(Synopsis from Goodreads)




First Impressions Last:

Ok, this book was an ARC when I recieved it, but I seriously have not had the time to read it since as there was other novels that needed to be read first for blog tours etc.. I love the colours of the cover as well as the sexiness of this novel personified on the cover. It sounded like a novel where there would be more sexy and paranormal elements, which appealed to me.




Behind the 308 Pages:











So not what I kind of thought before first starting this book. I didn't really expect the whole murder mystery kind of genre with this novel. Yeah it was paranormal like I signed up for along with a sexy twist. Don't get me wrong, this was still a good novel but just unexpected.

The connection between the Demon and the person is something we don't see every day. We don't understand the connection as much, until we experience it with Kara. Our knowledge of it with the other characters and their control over it shows us one side of it, but Kara shows us a different and earlier side of it that we haven't heard of until towards the end of the novel.

With Ben, we see how it can become out of control, yet his ending didn't do him any justice. He's supposed to be this rougue that no one can catch, let alone kill, yet how it ended for him and this reputation that has been build didn't do him any justice and I felt like this let us down. We would have expected more of a battle between him and the others, yet it was just plain and simple like any other death of a rogue demon, not someone who has turned their world upside down and created a whole lot of chaos.

The change in POV's was yet wasn't overwhelming. At times there were too many different perspectives depending on what the situation was, yet at other times, it was the right amount of knowledge from multiple persons' perspective. It was lacking in some ways but it had moments when you wanted to continually read the novel and other moments when it didn't really matter if you put the book down for a day. It lacked that factor that pulls you in constantly.

Some things in the novel seemed to happen too easily, and how it seemed to take the easy way out when having a more detailed and somewhat more complicated ending that would have made the book all the more memorable and made the ending a lot better, without letting some things get away with it all, when something more should have happened or something should have happened differently.
What's Next:
Kiss of Darkness (Dark Bonds #1)
At the Other End:   
Winter, a hybrid, has spent her life at war. A group of humans who are part demon, the hybrids, along with the lupines and nightwalkers, have dedicated their lives to defeating demons and protecting humanity. Yet, despite their united cause, the three groups share an uneasy alliance.
When hybrid military compounds come under attack from demon insurgents, Winter has no choice but to turn to the lupines and nightwalkers for assistance. It's a partnership based on necessity and she has no intention of letting down her guard with either group.
Marcus, the nightwalker Lord, has other plans. The immediate attraction between him and Winter promises a passion he can't ignore. To claim her as his own, he'll not only have to fight the demons who seem hell-bent on destroying her, but her own misconceptions about him and the nightwalker race. It's a battle he refuses to lose.
