Product Description

If your soul has been plunged into the dark depths of despair, how hard would you fight to claw your way back to the surface? Can the life you lost be restored, or is it destined to be forever phased out of existence? Fated to dissolve into a distant memory.

The Black Market—a ferocious, starving beast. An endless sinkhole of precious valuables; the playground for blood-thirsty power seekers. Only one thing feeds its hunger like no other…human life.

A sinister criminal ring has descended on the small town of Norton Springs, instilling fear in the residents. A vicious wave of disappearances coupled with the gut-wrenching horror of infants being ripped from the arms of their helpless mothers has the town quaking in terror.

When Gabe Thornton strolls back into his hometown, his main goal is to claim the one woman that has always denied her feelings for him—Nora Jacobs. The last thing he expects is to be thrust into a storm of devastation and chaos. Will his strength be enough to save them from the dark souls that threaten to destroy their chance at happiness?

Broken futures. Shattered dreams. Mind-numbing loss. When your heart has been ripped away from you—how do you find the will to go on?

No one is safe. Everything you thought you knew is about to change in this second installment in The Darkness Series.

Warning: Due to adult content and graphic situations, this book is intended for readers 18 and up.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you're gonna go dark, go DARK!! 17 June 2017
By Lindsay - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What the frack lol, the end was crazy and over the top! Its difficult to rate this one because its essentially two books:

1) A 2nd chance romance...Gabe and Nora were former lovers who were reunited at the start. Despite all of her grumbling, she gave up rather quickly and sexy time ensued. While there was nothing wrong with them, I never really cared about either one and wasn't invested in their story or HEA...2 stars for this element.

2) Dark thriller...Brook is a local woman who is kidnapped at the start and finds herself in a black market ring...they abduct women, impregnate them, and sell the babies, doing this over and over again until these women are shells. They are also abducting newborns to sell as well (worst hospital security ever). Brook is a good character, she is a fighter with self-defense training, tries to flee multiple times with no luck but she ends pregnant so you end up rooting for her and her unborn child to escape and bring it all down...4 stars.

I wish Ms. Brightmore would focus on the "darkness" more. The "second half" was done well, I felt chills (seriously, goosebumps) because this baby-farming was a pretty original premise. But the romance was underwhelming and I skimmed through so much of these sections of Nora and Gabe, they served as a crutch to move the story along and maybe help it be not so dark.

Also, this was a fresh start with a whole new town in a whole new state and all new characters. I spent awhile going back and forth trying to find links to "Malevolent" which ended on its own cliffhanger which actually could have been incorporated into the baby premise here. But other than Sheriff Brady popping up here to lead a vigilante investigation and a raid made up of town folk (really??), there was no other tie in to "Malevolent." And reading the premise of the next two books, it sounds like they'll be much the same - a horny couple coming together while small town life shatters around them with a horrific crime.

Stick to the intrigue and darkness, I really do think she could do a psychological thriller well...I would have liked to see more focus on Brook rather than weeks and months flying by to get through her pregnancy. Also, if we can spend time in the head of the maid, Nora's randy ranch hand, and Gabe's kid sister, we should have a much more thorough ride around in the villain's head - his obsessions and motivations, sick and twisted games to mess with her, maybe some Stockholm Syndrome, her continued fight for freedom but struggle with her feelings. If you're gonna go dark, go DARK!!

OMFG I'm so book hungover this book has left me at a loss for words it's that good. if you like a book that is intense gritty and dark then look no further than this outstanding book. It has some sensitive issues through out the book so be prepared. It also has some really hot scenes between the main characters Gabe and Nora. If you've read Malevolent then you have some idea of cassia style of writing and know that cassia is an extremely gifted and evil twisted genius. You will fall in love with the characters and be taken on an emotional rollercoaster ride and just when you think you have everything worked out you will be totally side swiped. I don't know whether I want to hug cassia for her brilliance or scream at her because oh my God the ending has completely knocked me for six I totally did not see it coming but holy hell what an ending. I can not wait to see to where this series is going to go next .
4.0 out of 5 stars Liked It 4 July 2015

I loved Malevolent. I couldn't wait to get Evanesce on my Kindle, so I preordered it.
I liked it but I didn't love it. I really wanted to! I am a fan of Cassia Brightmore. I recommend Malevolent all the time.
I think I expected it was continuing on from Malevolent, and it didn't. My bad.
What I liked:
Evanesce was dark and twisted, as I like. The author has a way of getting into the darkest corners of the human mind; to show the reader how much despair and pain one can take; yet how strong and resilient they can be as well.
The cover is gorgeous.
The emotion I felt reading this book - all over the place. It's a good thing.
The characters are solid. Each belonging in the story and having memorable personalities.

What I didn't like:
There were grammatical errors that should have never been. Little words that slipped through like her instead of his, know where instead of nowhere.
It felt like the storylines took so long to develop, the ending was rushed.
The ending. Never saw it coming. Twisted, yes, as it should be, but it was a bit unbelievable for me.
4.0 out of 5 stars I loved the overall storyline. 28 July 2015

This is the second book in Cassia Brightmore’s Darkness series. As with Malevolent, I loved the overall storyline. Wow!!! I really don’t want to give the story away so I can’t go too heavily into that storyline, suffice it to say that Ms. Brightmore knows how to weave a very dark & convoluted tale.

Again, I had some issues with the development of the MC’s relationship (or maybe I should say re-development). But the parallel storyline was very gripping & I loved the main female character. Felt she was quite real & she really helped pull me into the story. And the male characters in the side story are perfectly hateful!!!! Oh & the twist at the end, OMG, UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!

I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book leaves you on your toes and trying to guess what is going to happen next 30 June 2015
By Jaime - Published on

I was lucky to get a chance to read this book before it is released. If you had the chance to read Cassia Brightmore’s first book, Malevolent then you know to expect the unexpected and not get attached to characters. She does not disappoint with this book, Evanescence.

This book is set in Norton Springs, Texas and strange things are happening. Women and children are being kidnapped with no leads. Theo(who I love and will probably never read another book by this author, if she kills him off...just kidding I will still read but send threatening messages through Facebook) makes a call to his old friend sexy Sheriff Brady.

Theo, Brady, and Gabe start to investigate the disappearances and with the help of a contact from his days in NY, they figured out that it is part of the Black Market. When no leads are able to be traced, Brady goes back home but still runs some hunches. Back in Texas, Gabe and his long time love Nora, try to get back to who they once were before he left for two years. They get engaged and find out that they are expecting.

This book will leave you emotionally drained from the tears, getting your hopes up and figuring out ways to track this author down. Cassia’s twisted mind is one that you will love and she will keep you guessing because this chick had no clue what was going to happen. The ending will leave you yelling, “WTF! NO! NO! NO! WHY? WHAT? NO!”

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys being turned upside down emotionally and love hot sexy men who love protecting their women. This has it all tears, suspense, love and hot guys.
