Description

Her hands shackled. An assassin hunting the man she loves. Will she save him in time?

Elementalist Rielle needs to get to the man she loves before the assassin pursuing him finds her mark. There's only one problem: she's chained aboard a slave ship bound for a foreign land. 

And her new life is harsh, with her movements watched, food scarce, and safety even scarcer. Immortals ravage Emaurria, and a distant relation sparks the fires of rebellion against the new king while shrewd royals angle for an advantageous marriage. Powerful foreign nobles whisper promises in Rielle's ear - and lies with fatal consequences - but with more than her life at stake, whom can she trust? And while Jon faces personal demons, wars, widespread hunger, unrest, and politics, the assassin lurks in his periphery, a knife in the dark. 

With her death looming at every turn and an unforgiving barren desert between her and Jon, can Rielle save him before it's too late, or will the brutal sands claim her life...and everything she loves?

If you like the romance of A Court of Thorns and Roses, the dark intrigue of the Black Jewels series, the epic adventure of Game of Thrones, and a heroine who never gives up, you’ll love this romantic epic fantasy series. 

Pick up By Dark Deeds and dive into a medieval world sensual and dark, full of magic and greed, love and blades, where factions vie for influence and there are no easy choices....

(Note: This is an adult fantasy novel, and as such, there are adult situations depicted, including adult language, violence, romance, depression, alcohol and/or drug use, etc. This is the second book in a projected six-book series, so although this book's story is complete, it is not a stand-alone novel.)

Unexpectedly good

Wonderful story with twist and turns that keeps you read to know what's going to happen next. I love the main characters, and some of the new characters in this book.

Epic Sequel

The most epic sequel I've even read / listened to! The saga continues for Rielle and Jon and this book has more emotional twists and turns, ups and downs than I can count. My heart broke for Rielle and Honfleur does an amazing job bringing these worlds, these characters to life. I literally felt that I was in the story with these characters. I love the story line(s), the characters who are so complex and real...I am totally and completely hooked and captivated and you will be too!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Edge of my seat!

Miranda Honfleur is easily becoming my Favorite author!
This story gripped me from book 0.5 Winter Wren to book 2 Dark Deeds! I am so glad Audible has this series. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen she surprised me. I laughed out loud and I cried more then once. I was completely invested in the story and cannot wait to hear more!

Amanda Leigh Cobb is my Favorite narrator. You feel the emotions the characters are going through simply by the emotion she has in her voice. It is amazing to me and I don’t know how she does it! This was a home run hit for me, one of the best authors and Narrators ever on one project! I cannot wait for the other books to be available through audible. I will be waiting to buy it as soon as it released.

My new favorite series.

I seriously can’t understand why this series isn’t in mainstream bookstores and libraries. I feel it is just as good if not better than many of the books I’ve read there.
Oh! The feels! For most of the book, I wanted to either shake someone or hug them. The things that Rielle had to go through and the destruction of Jon over her disappearance made me want to scream and cry and hope no one was watching me listen to this book. Not to mention Brennan’s about face.
Amanda Leigh Cobb has narrated another masterful performance. This was one of those books that made me want to hurry up and find out what happens, while purposefully delaying, just so I can stay in the world Miranda Honfleur created just a little bit longer.
All of the characters are soooo flawed. Good and bad. Every. Single. One of them. I was so close to yelling at Jon. Yelling at Rielle. Yelling at the both of them. Together. Lots of yelling. Olivia was my savior. She was the only one who had a brain in her head and even her, poor girl, couldn’t catch a break.
Leigh, on the other hand, came out smelling like roses compared to the shitstorm he unleashed on the world.
I loved that the book was so long. A lot of people complained about the elves being boring but I loved that there were good “fantasy” creatures that came back as well as the bad. If we can have knights and princesses, why not dragons and giants? Or mermaids and elves? It reminds us that not only one little piece of the world was affected, but the whole thing.
I can’t wait for the next installment. Thank you, Miranda Honfleur, for the audiobook arc in exchange for my unbiased review.

Incredible World Building

This is the second book in an intriguing and different series. The first book in this series was good but it had a lighter feel to it than this one which was much darker in places. The storyline involves lots of action and surprises and the characters continue to develop and we can watch them grow! The writing style is very good and the storyline flows easily in this high-stakes drama which is in turns heart-wrenching and heartwarming.

I don't want to give too many spoilers but here are a few snippets of information, Rielle was kidnapped and rushed aboard a slaver, unable to use her magic because of her shackles. The treatment she received on board wash horrid and humiliating but she was bought by a woman who wanted a scribe, whilst her brother wanted Rielle as a mistress.

Jon is helpless to help her, he's trying to be a good king and help the people. He asks Brennan, to use his abilities to track her down, something Brennan is eager to do as he's in love with Rielle. By the time he finds her, she has made a dangerous alliance in the hope of getting back to Jon. Jon's forced into making alliances of all kinds to help his people. Whilst Brennan seems to have got the girl he loves!

There is so much more I could say, but won't because I don't want to spoil your enjoyment of this book, I loved it and can't wait for the next one in the series to be available to listen to.

The narration of the book by Amanda Leigh Cobb was excellent, her interpretation of the characters and the wonderful world created by this talented author could not have been improved upon. She brought this story to life for me.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Even better than the first

This book was even better than the first if that is possible. I loved it so much and I got so invested in the story I got so mad at the characters twice that I had to put the book down because I realized how upset I was getting. I just wanted everyone to come out with all the secrets and make everything right, but that would not be a very interesting story would it? I cannot wait to read more about Rielle, John and Brennan! Miranda Honfleur is great at cliff hangers making you need the next book now, which is something I love about her books.
I got to read this as an audio book and it has a great narrator!

Heartbreaking!!

This book is absolutely nothing like the first book. The first one was definitely more lighthearted and fun. This one is almost hard to read because of how much pain and heartbreak is in here. I absolutely never cry ever for any reason, but there's one point in this story where a tear fell down my cheek. The story is written beautifully, where you feel the characters love and anguish and it feels like you're there in the room with them. I had no idea the story was headed in this direction. Just when you think you know what's going to happen and who is going to end up with who, you're sorely mistaken. The book reminds me a lot of Sarah J. Mass books, where romance changes in every book. I almost want to say I liked this book better than the
Sarah j. Mass books I've read. I wasn't screaming at Rielle. But I was screaming at John. Oh it was painful, but so good. On to the next one if my heart can take it.

Heartbreaking Adventure

Dark Deeds is a well written, emotion filled story. I can still feel the slight rush of adrenaline after finishing this second segment of Rielle, Jon, Brennan and Olivia’s tale. I’ve grown attached to each character in one way or another and feel for them, especially Rielle. My heart just broke for her. There were many twists and turns and unexpected developments in their story. By the end of the book I had so many questions. I can’t wait to see where the next part of journey will take them and if my questions will be answered. (4.5⭐️)

this series

This series has been phenomenal. I just cant get enough. From start to finish it has been keeping me intrigued and wanting more. I suggest making sure you have all of them before starting though because of the cliffhangers but the books are so worth it. The men are sexy and both wanting one woman. Makes the book fun to see who gets her in the end!! Book three here I come!!!
