Blurb: This book is the final episode of Season One.

It’s a new night and that means more of Théoden’s lessons, one of which I was still recuperating from. I was so out of control last night and if my current physical condition is any indicator, my brothers definitely had their way with me. As far as my relationship with Théoden goes, I can’t help but feel drawn to him. I feel as though he’s accepting me as I’m accepting him in some morbid way. I don’t know… maybe it’s because I know I don’t have any choices. There’s no way out for me. I’m his and we both know it. Maybe there’s still some fight left in me, some little nugget of Noel the man that hasn’t been consumed by Noel the vampire. One can hope. I do know that this night feels different, like I’m coming to the last lap of a long, rigorous race. What is to become of me when this night comes to an end?

Review: Acceptance, Book #6, in the Chained in Darkness series, and the final installment in Season 1, brings Noel full circle exposing him to many elements of his new life. He has been tortured, raped, humiliated, torn from limb to limb, and finally branded after a long journey of lessons that bring him front and center to, the ultimate goal, and acceptance. He has been accepted by Théoden, his Master, and Father, and by all of his brothers in the house, at last.

Leading up to this moment, Noel has been subjected to many horrendous acts. Some he didn’t understand, at the time, but were finally starting to make sense. As Théoden takes Noel out, once again, into the outskirts of town, he will learn some valuable lessons as to what it means to be a vampire. A vampire that is feared and above all, commands authority.

Noel tries hard to hold onto what little human compassion he has but to no avail. He understands what will happen by not completely accepting his role as a soldier in Théoden’s house. What seems to bother him and weighs heavily on him is the thrill he gets when hunting for blood, quenching his desires by other males and lusting heavily for them. As Théoden has told him many times, it is his nature, his true self, accept him, and revel in it.

The final lesson Noel will have will be one that diminishes his spirit. He must make amends with Jonah. He must accept him as his brother. He will share desires with him and vice versa. Trying to hold onto what little rebellion he has left, he outright defies this order. And, he pays dearly for this mistake. He has learned the error of his ways. To continue to defy Théoden, on anything, will only cause him to suffer. This is a fight he will not win.

He demanded a lot of me and I’d risen to the challenge fanart acceptance noel nick bella(1)each time, killing my victims, fucking them under duress and being debased by anyone he wanted to share me with. But taking the life of a child…once was more than enough to open my eyes. Then when he’s combined his other torture methods, well…let’s just say that I know my limits. I didn’t before, but now I do and he knows them, too.

As Season 1 comes to a close with Acceptance, you realize the potential for what still lies unanswered. The author has brilliantly, through 6 books, given us an inside look at the world and life that Noel, unbeknownst to him, at the time, found himself caught in. We have watched his struggle with guilt and uncertainty of his future. We stood on the sidelines as he was beaten to a pulp and tossed aside like yesterday’s garbage. Each time he miraculously fought back with abandon and won the respect of his brothers and most of all his Sire.

Nicholas Bella has held my attention throughout this entire series. There are still many things left to explore and I can’t wait to see what the next season will have. The author’s ingenuity speaks for itself with the world building he has outlined in this series. Each installment was executed effectively and efficiently giving us an inside seat to an arena full of sex, desire, greed, pain, and ultimately power.

What Noel will have to do with the power he now holds, I can only guess, but I can’t wait to see where the author takes us next. Until Season 2…Thank you Nicholas for one hell of a ride.

Blurb: A black tigress shape-shifter is loose on the city of Sapphire Ridge, California, seeking vengeance against Thomas Hampton, the lead vampire who once assisted in imprisoning her over 400 years before. When the Dimenlien Guild, led by Mistress Garen, the only being who has full knowledge of portal usage, refuses to help Hampton recapture the Tigress, he must turn to an enemy who long ago vowed to destroy him if they ever crossed paths again: Jonathan “Pal” Palomino, now a private investigator with Eagle Eye Investigations headed up by Kevin Laredo.

Kevin Laredo never believed vampires existed, let alone creatures of other worlds, but when Jonathan’s past comes back to haunt him, the world for Kevin and his team becomes smaller… and darker. And when Jonathan refuses to help Hampton, the vampire proceeds to mark Vic Turner, Kevin’s lover, threatening to pull him into the Shadow Change completely unless Jonathan agrees. But in messing with Vic, Hampton never bargained for Kevin’s interference, and he soon learns that no one messes with Kevin or those he loves.

Not humans, not monsters… and not vampires.

Review: Kevin meets Vic again when he is attacked in a parking garage. They had met briefly years earlier, and Kevin has an instant attraction to Vic and soon discovers the attraction is mutual. Kevin offers Vic a job in his investigation agency. Vic wants to accept, but first he has a secret to admit to Kevin. Thomas Hampton is the lead vampire in Sapphire Ridge and he suspects that Arina has escaped from her prison. Now she is coming for him, but is also wrecking vengeance across the city. There’s only one way to bring her to heel and Thomas needs Jonathan to do it. But, Jonathan has hidden from the vampires for years ever since his lover’s life was taken by Veritan. To make matters more interesting, Kevin’s new lover, Vic, is the spitting image of Jonathan’s lost love and Thomas will use whatever means he has to, to gain the bait that he needs.    

This is a great beginning to a great new serial where some humans and paranormals clash. We begin the serial getting to know the characters and the parts that they slot into; the foundation on which the serial is built on and the beginning of what looks to be an interesting and compelling storyline. Each character that we visit plays an integral part in the story; the build up for what is to come in future episodes and showing us the beginnings of relationships and friendships. There are different character perspectives and they do change from scene to scene, but it is quite well done so you never really lose the thread of what is happening. it is trying to show you the characters involved and what is happening to them.

I really enjoyed this installment and how it builds the world around us as we read, introducing us to the interesting characters and giving us a background that is built upon as we go through the story. Kevin and Vic are just beginning a relationship in this first installment. We get the background story on Kevin and Vic slots in some details as he makes a confession. Jonathan is shrouded in mystery and we get hints that something in his past haunts him. As we progress, we discover what it is and the lasting effects it has on him. Thomas is someone who you think quite kindly about at first, but then he reveals his not so nice nature later and he begins to give you the creeps.

I have to admit that I was just a bit disappointed with the blurb because it has revealed details that haven’t appeared in this installment. It has whetted my appetite for the future books though. The characters are really good and we do get to know a bit about them. I have a feeling more details will be revealed in the future as the story is more padded out and expanded on. The storyline is really good and drew me in quite quickly. you have paranormals who hide from the humans and a few humans who know about them, but you also have politics going on in the paranormal world with political maneuvering, side stepping and veiled threats.

I will recommend this to those who love serial paranormal fiction, vampires, humans being dragged into the paranormal world, bloodshed, secrets being revealed and a budding new relationship.
