This is a reblog from my WordPress site. I'm giving away a few free copies of my first series, "Dark Sentinels" at certain stops along my virtual book tour for "The Alerians - Dark Progeny: Jordan's Wings," so check out this review! The Paranormal Romance Guild Review Team (PRG) posted a 5***** review of “Dark Sentinels Book One: Sable” today! Here’s the review and link below. This encouragement means a lot. I’m nearly finished with the draft of “Dark Sentinels Book Two: Torin.” Hoping to send it to my editor early next week. Book two is nearly twice as long as book one, and features a new hero and heroine as well as Sable and Akila (hero and heroine) from book one. Also, join me on tour with my Nephilim series, “The Alerians – Dark Progeny: Jordan’s Wings!” For complete virtual tour schedule, click here
Series: Dark Sentinels – Book 1
Author: Dariel Raye
Publisher: Dariel Raye Publishing
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Akila Marshall is a veterinarian with a passion for animals. Born to rich parents who gave her everything but attention and love, animals became her friends and family. She is a woman who cannot turn her back on any animal in trouble, and it is that devotion that changes her life.
When she rescues a wolf in danger of being killed, little does she know that this wolf is a shifter named Sable. Sable is looking for his twin sister, Syreena, who has disappeared and in that pursuit he is captured and drugged by Mr. Moore, a man set on experimenting with animals to strengthen the human race. He knows all about what Syreena and Sable are, and he is determined to use them, but Sable gets away. Sable and Syreena have spent their lives being turned away from packs, until it is discovered that they are Sentinels, wolves whose main purpose is being a guard to a pack. It is in this capacity and only in this capacity that they are accepted at all.
Akila brings him home and falls in love with the wolf she calls Brutus aka Sable, and he apparently feels the same. Can he reveal to her what he is? Will she accept him as both a wolf and a man?
This is a novella but it reads like a full novel, mystery, betrayal, love and romance. This is the first in the Sentinel’s series and I can’t wait for more. Although a short story, it was very entertaining. Akila is a wonderful character and her devotion to animals is beautiful.
