Publisher's Summary

Months after moving to the mysterious city of Cognito, Silver is developing her gifts as a Mage and learning how to live under new laws. She is forced to give up her old life and live in secret among the humans. There is finally hope of leading an ordinary life…until Logan Cross walks into it.

Her chance meeting with Cross leads Silver close to discovering the identity of the nameless Mage who once stole her light and discovered the unique power she possesses. That knowledge poses an unimaginable threat to Silver, fueling the search to find out who he is before he finds her.

Lives are at stake. Truths are revealed. And an unexpected passion ignites.

Fantastic World

Any additional comments?

Silver is continuing her training as a learner but isn’t quite ready to give up her past life. Justus and Simon continue their search for the mysterious mage known as “the benefactor.” In TWIST we get to know new characters, but more importantly, we learn more about the characters we have previously met. I am enjoying the balance of suspense, comradery, and romance that Dark delivers.

Dark introduces two new types of Breed. A Chitah and a Wolf Shifter. Logan Cross is the Chitah who has cat-like abilities wth speed, senses, and strength. They are feared by Mage for their ability to kill or paralyze them. Silver’s introduction to Logan is filled with danger and was central to the tale delivered in TWIST. Cross hates Mages, but Silver might just change his opinion. I was impressed at how Dark developed Logan and look forward to learning more about his abilities.

Dark continues to solidify the world she has created, given insight into its history, teaches and hierarchy. Justus, who doesn’t like to be touched, is the perfect teacher for Silver and I devoured the little tidbits about this complex Mage. Adam, his mentor, and Simon are all present. We meet new characters who piqued my curiosity. Dark is assembling a motley crew of characters as they work together on taking down the benefactor. Their interaction from disagreements to teasing banter pulled me into their world.

While there is plenty of suspense and action scenes sprinkled throughout TWIST a developing romance is pushed to the forefront. As a treat, we also see a second romance that develops. These threads held my attention as much as the overall arc and current situation. We also get time to further develop friendships within this group. I absolutely adore Simon. He makes me laugh and Justus intrigues me. I actually thought he might be a romantic interest for Silver but have moved past that.

We see growth in Silver as Dark showcases her strength, compassion, and stubbornness. While she is still a learner she refuses to watch from the sidelines and does a fair job of handling all the testosterone surrounding her.

For me, TWIST, was stronger than STERLING, as Dark had to spend less time establishing the world and focused on the characters and different threads within the Mageri series. Fresh and action packed Dark created a world and characters I am anxious to revisit.

Nicole Poole continues to narrate as she does Dark’s other series. I love both her female and male voices. I love when an author and narrate come together like this and couldn’t imagine the series on audio without her.

A Little Disappointing

I have a real problem with stories that have the heroine doing something stupid and ending up in bad places over and over. She’s supposed to be intelligent. How does she NOT know what always happens when you go into the basement?!

Irritating

I'm struggling to finish this book! Zoe/Silver is killing me slowly with her ignorance! Why I'm I so nosey that I just can't put the book down. I feel like I'm punishing myself some how. I'm praying it gets better.

Great world building. Great story

I love the voice of the narrator. She does a terrific job of giving each character their own personality. The story is slower paced than the Seven series, but that’s not bad. She really develops the characters as she adds layer upon layer to them. You alternately love and hate each one as you learn more.
I recommend this series and this book.

Weak

I can't stand a possessive male stereotype in books. The story has a lot of good potential but Silver is weak, very weak if she allows Logan to do everything that he does. Returning all of this series that I have purchased.

Powerful paranormal series!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Twist to be better than the print version?

Nope, they are both exceptional.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love them all.

Which scene was your favorite?

“Sweet Little Raven, dusted in sugar—I will possess your heart.”

“We may spend a lifetime searching and never find our Chitah kindred. A male knows her on sight. His desire for her becomes an unquenchable thirst, an undeniable need; he will want her just as sure as he draws breath and will lay down his life for her.” Logan sighed. “She does not feel the same pull, so the male must prove himself worthy to her. Nothing comes easy in life. He will always want his kindred, whether she accepts him or not.”

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was a roller-coaster ride. I felt every emotion listed in Old-Webster.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend this series. It's worth it. 5 *****stars across the board..

Really liking this series

For the paranormal romance fancier, this series is turning out to be a treat. Not so much romance, as a romantic teaser. Silver has plenty of men in her life, all special in their own way, all out to protect her from Nero who wants her light. Logan Cross is the new 'man' that forces himself into her life, with unwanted intentions. Silver's life is in jeopardy once again, but the fun of this story begins.
The story line is getting much more interesting with a couple of new characters being introduced, making "Impulse" a must read.

Great Book!

Loved the story! Going straight to book 3! It's refreshing for the heroine to be strong, independent-yet knows when she needs help and is not self centered. Unlike the heroines in YA books.

Awesome series!

I love the characters in this series. Silver is a strong woman who is thrown into some insane situations. She's surrounded by strong men who are willing to jump to her aide. So far, I love the series.
