Item Added: Wild Darkness. Ah, Faine. He's by far one of my favorite heroes in this series, and the fact that he respects the heck out of Helena as a fellow warrior is icing on his cake!

Interesting and right the fight for the liberty for everyone, but this part is become more important than the story by main characters. As a result, I have been reading this series since it started.
She is also one of the authors that makes me laugh with glee when I realize that separate series I have enjoyed are all taking place in the same world. This in the final book in the Bound by Magick series, but not the final book set in this particular world. Wild Darkness builds on the events of the previous installment Going Under reviewed here.
As a result, I will be unable to avoid spoilers for the previous books. Things were progressively getting worse for The Others. All throughout the last book, the Others were striving for a peaceful resolution, educating, informing and not harming humans but the anti-Other rhetoric kept growing along with violent attacks against the Others for daring to want to continue to live a normal life. Going Under ended with a firebomb attack at a community center full of noncombatants, families and children in full daylight followed by an armed assault.

Wild Darkness starts as the fighting has ended, but before any of the emergency medical or law enforcement personnel have arrived which set the tone for the entire book. Time and again, the Others wee attacked and had a delayed or no response from law enforcement.
If the law enforcement showed up, the Others were treated by some as if they were the cause not the victims. In the meantime through the political channels, anti-Other legislation aimed at reducing them to animal status was moving towards passage by the House and Senate. Helena, raised from childhood on the more offensive warrior aspects of being a witch, was working as the security chief for the Owen clan.
While she was able to set up a variety of procedures to help protect the Others her responsibilities grew after her abilities were recognized and she was asked to take on the responsibility of protecting their spokeswoman, Molly. As the stakes for those she protected and her stress continued to rise, she was forced to learn how to depend on other people and how to handle the fact that not everyone was going to live through every attack.
I loved watching her grow as a person and start to emotionally trust another man again. Faine was a bit more of an unknown. Each time he watched Helena rise to the occasion and give her all, the attraction he felt grew stronger. When he was officially asked to protect her as she protected other people, he was glad to seize the opportunity and help her with more than physical protection.
But not to you. I want you to lean on me because I want you. I want all of you, Helena Jaansen. Since the first time I met you I knew you were special. I thought it was a passing fancy at first. A male like me finds those qualities fairly irresistible. So much was at stake, so much violence, and through it all it appeared as if the strident voices of hatred were going to win. Dane included an extremely touching scene in a local grocery store, which provided hope but also demonstrated eloquently how voices of reason are usually quieter and more subtle than those of extremism on either side.
It made me think about society today and through the ages and wonder what it would take to stir the moderate masses into action. I am also looking forward to revisiting some other characters and seeing how their lives have changed.

Not to mention the threat that has existed from the beginning is still around. I give Wild Darkness an A Sep 17, Angela Crockett rated it really liked it. The struggle that the clan and all the others went through fighting for equality.

It was hard to be a part of all that violence. And while the point of equality was made it was such a let down to get to the last few pages just to get the proclamation from the president that everyone who was a citizen is a citizen. Why did it take so much violence and struggle to get to that point? I think originally when I started this series early on as all of the other previous series combined, I was thrilled. But with war you lose family. If you are not into violence and pain and the true horror of war.
I say this because the you cannot read Lauren Dane's books with out being IN the story. I just wish there had been more attention to rebuilding and closure for me. Nov 12, Betsy rated it liked it. I always enjoy this world and Dane's writing. This one was more of what I like, although the external plot resolution seemed somewhat sudden and like it wouldn't solve many of the problems in this world. Oct 21, Kelly Russell rated it really liked it. Great series, wish it wasn't over Jul 20, Mnix rated it it was amazing Shelves: paranormal-shapeshifter-vampire , joyfully-recommended.
The battles are getting worse and lots of people on both sides are being hurt and killed. He crossed the Veil in order to help the Others fight a battle that is quickly becoming a war. He has been alive for a long time and experienced many wars so his knowledge and help are greatly needed. As the events are turning more deadly, Faine has traveled to California to help Helena and has been greatly impressed by both her abilities and her fighting style to keep those she protects safe. It quickly becomes apparent that the hate mongers are willing to kill everyone including small children to keep America pure.
Helena and Faine are on the front lines as the battles turn even more deadly and yet they find the time to explore the passion that is binding them. America is being torn apart with this battle between the hate filled humans and the Others and time is running out before all these battles erupt into a War that will make friends and family members choose sides.
Two warriors in a time of deadly battles discover that nothing will stop a love that fate desires in Wild Darkness. I swear I held my breath from the front cover to the back cover afraid that I might miss something. Helena lives and breathes her position as the head Hunter for the Gennessee Clan and deeply feels every loss in this time of madness. Faine originally came across the Veil to help in the emerging war only to find the one woman who made his soul sing.
Bound By Magick | Lauren Dane
I loved how Helena and Faine found a way to stay optimistic when all the battles and deaths should have made them exactly the opposite. Many times I just shook my head at the realistic way that Ms. Dane explored just how far some people will go to destroy what they are afraid of. All the hate, bigotry and self justified actions which become so apparent in this fast paced and action packed journey which finally climaxes a story arc I have loved across several series.
I would also highly suggest reading the entire story arc in order which goes across the Bound in Magick, de La Vega Cats and Cascadia Wolves series. Nov 15, Debbie Lester rated it it was amazing. It the conclusion of the escalating war between the Human extremist groups and the Others. Fans of the series will be thrilled with this action packed novel. Dane focuses on character development and world building, like no other author in the genre.
See a Problem?
With political intrigue, personal betrayals and a whole lot of sensuality, this novel is one paranormal romance fans won't want to miss! Lauren Dane is probably one of my favorite adult romance writers. She knows how important it is for the erotic aspects of the book to be in balance with the rest of the story. If one side or the other is out of sync, that element overshadows the whole book. Dane has a knack for getting it just right. She has great character development, great world building skills and some mind boggling sexual moments in each book.
The Bound by Magick series is one of my favorites by Dane for a lot of reasons.
