Yes, I'm reviewing ANOTHER Kim Knox book, and guess what? I've still got a few left to go :P If anything, you guys should all take this as a major flashing sign that these books are worth the time. :) At least if you're into sci fi, paranormal, romance, action, and yes, even a little erotica. By little I do kind of actually mean lot, HOWEVER, there's plot to this book, and the others that I've read written by this author. In a lot of erotica the plot kinda just falls by the way side and all we're left with is...well, sex. Sex is great, but I don't just want to read about it. I want there to be more, there to be substance. Well, so far all of Kim Knox's work has that. Great characters, great plot, interesting witty banter...but I digress. Let's just get to the actual review, hmm? ;)

Her Dark Soul is about three Dark Souls, which are kind of like demons in a way. The three main characters have to figure out who wants the treasure before that person uses it to destroy them all. Ash, the main female lead, has lived in this one temple her entire life, it's all she knows, but the book starts out with her having to leave, and with Merek a man she's never met before. Rushing forward a bit, she ends up also meeting another guy named Lucas. The second he enters the picture I was completely torn over which one of them, him or Merek, I was in love with more. They're both so different, from the way their described physically right down to the way they act and talk. It's always interesting to see how well an author can flesh out a character. Sometimes there's only one in a book that's rounded out and given a uniqueness. That's not the case here. Both males have distinct differences all their own, and it really helps to draw the reader in. I got totally invested in their story. I only wish we could have known more about Lucas's past. I'm not usually really into stories where there are three people involved in the relationship, but I loved this book. It worked in a way I didn't even realize I could think was possible. I love the three of them together, how they act and live. It's impossible not to want Ash to be with both of them. Ash herself is another interesting character. She's a little naive, which is understandable because of where she's lived, but at the same time she has a strength that gets more and more expressed throughout the story. She develops over time and that's always a lot of fun to read. At the end of a good book the character should always be slightly different then at the start (at least in my opinion) and Knox did a great job with this. The ending was also really sweet between her and Merek. The only complaint I have is that at some times it got slightly confusing what was going on, but it was never something so major that I had to stop and spend a lot of time thinking over it. I would recommend this book to anyone into steamy romance, splashes of action, and stories about people who are meant to be together no matter what.
