Welcome to the blog tour for the brilliant book Dwellers of Darkness. Included in this post is a review of the newest book in the Darkness series and a great giveaway for you to enter. Thank you to Xpresso Book Tours  for organising this fantastic tour.

Now on with the fun 🙂


Title: Darkness of Light

Author: Stacey Marie Brown

Series: Darkness (#1)

Genre: paranormal, romance, fantasy

Audience: YA/NA

Publication Date: 13th February 2013


Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo.

Ember Brycin has been called them all. She’s always known she’s different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her.

When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for trouble teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who’s hot as hell and darkly mysterious. Their connection is full of passion, danger, and secrets. Secrets that will not only change her life, but what and who she is—leading her down a path she never imagined possible.

Between Light and Dark, Ember finds a world where truth and knowledge are power and no one can be trusted. But her survival depends on finding out the truth about herself. In her pursuit, she is forced between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren’t always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she’ll definitely wish she could.


Now onto the next book in this brilliant series 🙂


Title: Fire in the Darkness

Series: Darkness (#2)

Genre: paranormal, romance

Audience: New Adult

Publication Date: 31st August 2013


It’s been four weeks since Ember Brycin witnessed what her powers are capable of. The Electrical Current Storm has turned Seattle, Washington into a natural disaster zone. The death toll is in the thousands with countless others homeless and hungry.

And Ember is the one who caused it. Something she will have to live with every day.

Those people who were unable to escape either turned quickly into gangs or live in shelters. Ember, on the other hand, can’t do either. With a price on her head and a Dark Dweller on her ass, she is constantly on the move. Both Light and Dark are hunting her for their own purpose to use her as a weapon or a pawn in the war between the Unseelie King of the Dark and the Seelie Queen of the Light.

Em needs help but doesn’t know who to trust: Lars, the mystery man Torin told her to find? Torin, the Seelie Queen’s personal knight, who has sworn to keep Em safe? Or Eli, who wants to turn her over to the Unseelie King, but whom she has an undeniable, intense connection with?

No matter what she chooses she will probably lose—her life or everything and everyone she loves.


Now finally onto the book this post is all about 🙂


Title: Dwellers of Darkness

Series: Darkness (#3)

Genre: paranormal, fantasy, romance

Audience: New Adult

Publication Date: 27th February 2014


Some days feel like years, but in Ember Brycin’s case just the opposite is true. She had only been in the Otherworld for a day or two when she returned back to the Earth’s realm. But it is three years later on Earth. Em is now 22. It would matter if she was human, but she’s not. She is a Dae, part Demon and part Fay, with a little Dark Dweller thrown in to make her even more of a freak.

Seeing Seattle rebuilt only confirms she has been gone three years. For her it was not long ago that the Seattle area was just rubble of concrete and death. All done by her hand.

One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is her undeniable connection to Eli Dragen, who is sexy, gorgeous, and even more volatile and frustrating. But her problems go way past him. The Seelie Queen of the Otherworld still holds Mark, Em’s father, and her friends, Ryan, and Josh as hostages. Em needs to rescue them without, once again, getting caught and being used as a pawn to help the Queen regain possession of Earth. At the same time Ember is in hot water with Lars, the Unseelie King, after breaking her contract with him.

As some secrets have come to light others seem to become even more enigmatic. The only truth Ember knows is,everyone is harboring secrets. As Eli’s past is revealed, Em understands more clearly why he acts the way he does and how much their lives are intertwined. But she also knows Eli is holding something back, something that could change their relationship forever.

Em herself continues to wrestle with her feelings toward Torin and her own secret she’s withholding from Kennedy. As the tension for war mounts between the Seelie and Unseelie (Light and Dark), the tension at the Dark Dweller’s compound mounts even more as they prepare to obtain the sword no matter what the price. But is Ember the answer to the location of the sword? Is she the one to fulfill the prophecy? As usual nothing is ever what it seems.


My Rating: 5/5 stars


My Review:

Amazing! I am have no words to describe just how brilliant this book is. The Darkness series has been fantastic throughout and this novel did not disappoint. The first two books in the series were also brilliant but Dwellers of Darkness just made the series even better.  If you are going to read this book you will have to read the whole series as the follow on from each other. From the very beginning the reader is drawn in by this novel. As the reader I never wanted this book to end and I found myself up at night desperate to see what would happen next. The reader is left on the edge of their seats with the drama and action filled plot. Stacey Marie Brown has written a phenomenal book packed full of suspense, drama, action and romance. The author has created a unique plot which grabs the readers attention.

Overall I would highly recommend all lovers of paranormal get themselves a copy of this series because it is fantastic. I can’t wait to read the final book in the Darkness series and I hope the author continues to write more breath taking novels.
