Harper and Knox are back and better than ever! The fourth book in Suzanne Wright's globally bestselling The Dark in You series is not to be missed.

Harper and Knox are back and better than ever . . . Discover the unmissable fourth book in Suzanne Wright's globally bestselling The Dark in You series

The final horseman awaits . . . and the stakes have never been higher.

With the birth of their son, Asher, Harper and Knox are both more powerful and more vulnerable than they've ever been before. Asher's charm has seduced even the devil himself, but Harper knows that the real villain is still out there, and as desperate as ever to see the Primes fall. They're laying low, and there's no way to tell which one of their circle is really a deadly foe . . .

When the final horseman makes their move, Harper and Knox will have to use all the considerable power at their disposal - and that may even include Asher's mysterious abilities. One thing's for sure - this is a baby who's more than a match for any demon coming after him.

It's time for the world's most formidable family to take the fight to the enemy . . .

By SpiceI cannot even begin to describe how excited Sparkles’ and I were when Embers published. Knox is in both of our Top Ten Book Boyfriend lists so to say we were stoked is an understatement of epic proportions. Lily, for whatever reason, hasn’t read the Dark In You series, but we are working on her since the only thing that could have made this more fun was for her to be along for the ride. And what a ride it was!

We immediately started in with guesses as to who the final horseman would end up being.

Spice: Drew…interesting. But I’ll be disappointed if he’s the bad guy. Too soon.

Sparkles: No, I think he’ll keep us distracted while the real culprit flies under our radar. Much like Nora.

In fact, the mystery kept us on our toes the entire book, generating lots of discussion with some wild theories thrown out there. I’m not going to spoil things, but both of us ended up being quite prophetic in some of our comments, which made for just a bit of smugness on our parts.

 

We were thrilled when Knox, the biggest badass of them all, actually had an opponent thrown at him that was a decent match. We knew he’d have to work at taking him down, and it wouldn’t be easy. Needless to say, we loved all the suspense and action we were treated to.

But what completely blew us away was the chemistry between Knox and Harper. It didn’t matter this is the fourth book focusing on this couple, these two can rev up some serious fire between them. There were scenes that were so hot, it was jaw-dropping.

“He fucked her hard. Brutally rammed into her like there was a fever in his blood.Because there was. Her. She was the fever. She wasn’t just deep under his skin. She was in his blood, bones, cells—everywhere. Filled and soothed every fracture and void inside him.”

Another thing we loved was when Knox actually gave good grovel. Don’t worry, I’m not going to ruin it for you by quoting the best part, but I will give you this:

“I’m an asshole.”

“Yes, you are.”

We love how Harper didn’t roll over immediately. She actually made him work for it and, let me tell you, he not only hit it out of the ballpark, with his version of makeup sex he sent that ball up to the stratosphere. ” “Dammmnnn” indeed…

As much as I love Harper and Knox and will miss them being the focus of any future books, this series has some strong supporting characters and we can’t wait to get their stories. Even better, now we have a new one to ooh and ahh over in baby Asher. I know it will be a long time before he’s old enough for us to get his story, but we both hope he gets lots of page time. He was so cute he almost stole the show! (OMG, those cute little cuffs).

I can’t tell you how much we loved this book. With our favorite couple at the helm, Embers was everything we wanted it to be and more with the action, suspense, mystery and all the  scorching chemistry it delivered. When we finished, we were both heartbroken at the thought of not getting a new SW book until December. That is until we realized neither of us had read very far into the Deep In Your Veins Series. I feel another buddy read coming on soon!
