Product description

Product Description

OF LOVE AND DARKNESS kicks off the new Twisted Fate shape-shifter series. There are two kinds of shifters: Rakshasa and Light Ones. Rakshasa want to snack on human bones. Light Ones want to protect the humans.

Unfortunately, the Rakshasa are currently winning the battle, as the Light Ones are not fertile. Only one type of Light One, exceedingly rare females called Chala, are able to produce offspring. The Rakshasa know this, and have managed to nearly decimate the population.

Enter Gavin Rowan, a cursed Rakshasa who believes he is a Light One. He feels all his Rakshasa urges to kill, but has been cursed to protect the Light Ones instead.

Throw Sydney Amataya into the mix. She is a Chala—except she doesn't know it. At least not until Gavin saves her from a Rakshasa attack and then declares her as his mate.

But that's not how Sydney operates. Encouraged by her cross-dressing Fate, William, she refuses Gavin's claim. If he wants to mate with her—once she gets over the shock of discovering this supernatural world, that is—he's going to have to woo her, impress her, wine and dine her. Romance her. She deserves no less, end of the world be damned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Series starter with potential. 3-1/2+ Stars. 11 July 2017
By jcat - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I downloaded this book because of all the glowing reviews. Although I did like it, for me it was more like a 3-1/2 Star read. Because the writing was decent and the book ended with some resolution for the main characters, I'll round it up to 4 Stars.

The premise is interesting; two types of shifters (one dark/evil and one protective/good). Humans are apparently unaware of the mass killings to their kind by the evil shifters. Seems to me that there would be undeniable clues, but the humans remain unenlightened. The "Good" shifters (other than the Hero) seemed rather useless in guarding the humans. I did like the main characters, but the Heroine just didn't seem to have much depth. The Hero was more interesting, but although the reader is told frequently that he has massive guilt for his past misdeeds, I didn't really feel it. I did like the Heroine's Fates Guardian, who was described as a "cross-dressing male the size of a Mack truck." Although, these "Fates" did seem rather inept at guarding their Chala charges, since the Heroine was the last one alive in the World.

It's a promising start to a different sort of Shifter series. The next book apparently will continue the plot and will concentrate on Brandon, one of the supporting characters in this book. I'll probably continue the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! 9 September 2016

Gotta love when an author you read gives you a new series that has you going OMG! That's the case with this one and it's amazing! Gavin is under a curse that makes him want to protect those he should want to kill but for over 100 years he's been doing this. One night he meets Sydney and when he realizes that she's a Chala he decides that he has to mate with her even though he thinks she's not his type. Pretty soon word gets out to others that she's around and Gavin has to work to get her to mate with him. Once she does things should be great right? Well think again.

The author is amazing with building her characters and letting the reader get to know them. You can actually feel Gavin's frustration with everything and feel sorry for him, well part of the time. And Sydney is one of those woman who knows their mind and has no problem letting you know what she wants. And you also have William OMG I just LOVE him, he's the best! A definite must read with new types of paranormal characters, at least to me.

A fresh and original storyline that you will surely enjoy, Of Love and Darkness is my first read by Tami Lund. Action pack filled between light and dark, Gavin was cursed for killing chala's and for over 100 years had been killing his own kind until he meets Sydney a chala, but also his mate. Can they be together or will the fates have another plan for them. Find out when you read this first book in the series that has great characters, well written, and an overall great paranormal romance story that you will want to one-click. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and Unique Shifter Romance 10 July 2017
By Aunt G - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Of Love and Darkness by Tami Lund is book #1 in the Twisted Fate series. I was blown away by this book. This is a truly unique take on shifter books and I personally loved it. Entertaining, deep and complex this story will grab your attention and not let go. Sydney is a very strong willed heroine that knows what she wants and is not afraid to tell you about it. Gavin is a very sympathetic hero that is very easy to fall for. William is charming and funny and adds so much light to what could have been a very gloomy scenario. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 7 July 2016
By Sheila A. Willert - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a really engaging book. Gavin is a cursed shifter that is compelled to save the Light Ones and humans. Nightly he goes out to battle evil shifters. He has almost destroyed all the breeder Light Ones or Chala. He finds one in Detroit. Sydney has no idea how special she is. Gavin wants her for his mate even though he does not deserve her. William, her Fate/protector, is so funny and has a fabulous wardrobe - read the book! What a journey. Shhhh don't talk to me, I just started book 2
