Publisher's Summary

When the road forks, how do you know which path is the right one? Raven Black hunts evildoers for fun, but her vigilante justice isn't the only reason she's hiding from the law. Half vampire, half mage, she's spent years living as a rogue to stay alive. When a Russian shifter offers her a job in his covert organization hunting outlaws, dignity and a respectable career are finally within her grasp. The catch? Her new partner is Christian Poe - a smug, handsome vampire whom she'd rather stake than go on a stakeout with. They're hot on the trail of a human killer who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. One misstep during her probationary period could jeopardize Raven's chance at redemption, and her partner would love nothing more than to see her fail. Dark secrets, unexpected twists, and a blurred line between good and evil will keep you on the edge of your seat. Will Raven find the courage to succeed, or will she give in to her dark nature?

okay.

I'm not sure if it was the reader or the writing, but I had a hard time engaging with the main character. her motivations didn't make much sense to me.

Easy listen, this series has potential

I enjoyed this book. The series has potential to go places with its characters. I bought the second book before I was done with the first. The narrator was fantastic and easy to listen to.

really enjoyed

I really enjoyed this book. It was very entertaining and real. Loved the characters. The story was very sad and depressing at first but was still good. Only wish they went over more of her background but they will prob do with the next one

favorite Series so far!!!!

funny, engaging and a little bit of romance......
if you like supernatural stories, this book is for you. I've listen to all the books in the series and they are all great (my favorite story so far!). the narrator is great and even though there is quite a bit of blood, the author makes so funny I always look like a loon walking around with a smile on my face. highly recommended :)

Awesome story, amazing writing, truely a wonderful

This was the first book I have read by Dannik Dark; I loved it so much I read every book in this series, then went and found all her other books and read them too. When book 5 of the crossbreed series came out I wanted to re-read the first 4 books before jumping back into the series with no. 5 so I decided to try audiobooks! That was definitely a good decision. The accents alone added to the story. The writer is awesome, the story is great but I was truly impressed by the audiobook & how I felt like a was right there with very little imagine needed on my part! Try the sample & see what I mean! It just makes the story even better! LOVE Dannik Dark so much! I’ll be waiting for more. #Audible1

What a wonderful beginning!

I loved this book. It is a great start to a new series! Dannika has don't it again! I loved Raven and how she was able to accept who she is as a crossbreed. The chemistry between her and Christian was so electric! It was also full of humor! I can't wait to read the next book and see what happens! ❤❤❤❤❤

And she did it again! Another fantastic book.

What I really loved about this book is the fact that it dove more into the world around the characters. I got the chance to get to know a little about each breed and their characteristics, even listening to some I've never heard of before. I believe this book would be a good first book to read going into the series blind. And as for the narrator Nicole Poole is my absolute favorite narrator ever!

Keystone Was A Decent Spin Off But.....

.....I didn't feel it was a solid follow up to the original series.

Dannika Dark has a created a unique world of mages, vampires and interesting characters; however, I was a little disappointed with this spin off. The story is dialogue driven, slow to develop, and it felt more like a YA story. The romance between Raven and Christian Poe was lacking, and I really didn't feel like it was going anywhere. I was hoping for more romance, chemistry and attraction between the character, but instead there was a lot of dialogue and drama. I really liked her other series Seven Years, and absolutely loved Risk. For Dannika Dark fans, this is probably a must listen, but I'm on the fence if I will be continuing the series.

As usual, Nicole Poole does an excellent job narrating. I loved all the different accents she gave the characters.

I used my credit for this story, and kinda wished I had waited to see if it would have been offered as a whispersync deal or on sale.

Great Story and Exceptional Voice Work

I am very picky about my books and audiobooks even more so. Nicole Poole did such great accents. Most people fail miserably doing different accents. She nailed them beautifully. The story was good and I was happy that it was not another story about a character that is all powerful and perfect with no training. Everything doesn't go perfect all the time and it seems more realistic to how life usually works for people. As realistic as it can be with supernaturals in the story anyways. I was impressed and would recommend this story without a second thought.

WOW ❤❤❤❤

I loved this book. It was exciting and surprisingly relatable, if you grew up on the streets. so yeah I could relate and it was a awesome supernatural adventure. i love romance stories that have more depth than just sex scenes that never seem to end. I definitely recommend this series. I can't wait to start the next book, witch is right now❤❤❤❤

Another great Dannika Dark book!!

I have read every book by Dannika Dark and this one was just as good!! I love the characters! The only bad part is having to wait for the next book in the series to come out.

Christian .... Nico..... Raven...

I absolutely love dannika dark everything she writes but I have always had a soft spot for Christian. Is this going to be the story for his happy ending or is he going to step back and in this series will Raven go to Nico. I guess I will have to wait for the rest of the series. I really like all the new characters it is set in the world that dannika dark is already made just a new set of characters they all work together to get the bad guys that the law can't quite catch I'm sure there will be several interesting storylines on this one. let's see who is on team Christian or team Nico I am pretty sure that is going to float back and forth a little. awesome read is always love narration can't say good enough stuff about this duet.
