Diana freed Alric from his prison and the insanity his captivity inflicted upon him. She healed him with her passion, and now she lies broken after a vampire attack, locked deep inside herself where he cannot reach her.
The huge, muscled man leaning over the strange bed where Diana awakes is straight out of nightmares full of blood and pain. Yet she’s drawn to him, her body yearning for him even as her mind struggles to make sense of a lust she can’t recall.
Alric has no intention of giving up on the woman who never stopped fighting for him. His one hope is that time and his familiar touch will help her heal and remember. But with a demon god poised to tip the balance of power, time is not on their side.
Review: Dark Immortal is the third book in the Immortal Warriors series by J. K. Coi. I chose this book because the summary pecked my interest. I have also read one of the other books in the series and I enjoyed it.
Diana has overcome many struggles in life. Her daughter died and then she struggled with alcoholism and depression to cope with the loss. While she had had a hard life, she still has not let life beat her down. She had spunk. She is an emotionally strong woman.
Alric was imprisoned years ago underground. He was there over a hundred years before Diana found him. She brings him back from the brink. Alric becomes to strong warrior he once was.
The chemistry between Alric and Diana is off the charts. I enjoyed the struggle they both had to not act on the physical chemistry while Diana was getting her memory back. The sex scene was very hot.
What is apparent in this story is that Diana in her relationship with Alric, she lost some to most of her independence in an effort to please Alric. What Alric did not notice was that he was killing a part of her because he did not want to leave the house unprotected. It’s a no brainier that when she lost her memory in the attack she went back to a time when she felt most in control. Now that she has no memory, Alric will have to deal with not just her memory returning but her spirit as well.
I would have liked to see Alric and Diana a few months or years down the road to see how they adjust as a couple with Diana’s new found independence. Overall, this is an enjoyable story and a great addition to the series.
