He spent more than a thousand years imprisoned in Hell…
Drake is an ancient dragon shifter, one of the most powerful beings in existence, but over a millennium trapped in utter darkness has left him ill-equipped for modern society. If it wasn’t for Victoria, the sweet female brave enough to befriend him, he’d be lost. She’s smart and gorgeous and everything he never dared dream of during his years of agonizing loneliness. He may not have anything to offer her, but one thing he knows for sure: he’d die to keep her safe.
Only to fall into the heaven of her touch.
Victoria is a wolf shifter, healer of the Stavros pack. She’s seen a lot, but she’s never met anybody quite like Drake, the fiery, fascinating shifter who can blaze through the skies unseen by mere mortals. He’s lost, dangerous, and the last male she should fall in love with, but the more time she spends helping him navigate modern life, the deeper—and hotter—their connection becomes. She’s thrilled when they finally locate his family, but reuniting with his people plunges them both into unimaginable danger. It’s a race against the clock trying to figure out who wants them dead and who they can trust, especially when the threat is closer than they ever imagined.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
Drake was twelve or thirteen years old when he was sacrificed to open a Hell gate. Now fifteen hundred years later he does not know who sacrificed him, because when he came beck through the gate in New Orleans he cannot seem to remember anything from that time. The first time he saw Victoria he knew she was his mate, and he will make her his one day when he has the means to support her. Victoria is the healer in the Stavros pack, and she really likes Drake and wishes he would make some kind of move on her. When Drakes brother Conall and his sister Keelin show up, things go to hell when some unknown dragons show up and poison Victoria. Now they are taking Victoria to Dragon clan to a healer who can help Victoria with the poison. He doesn’t know who to trust now that he is surrounded by dragons he does not know. When Victoria and Keelin are kidnapped he finally remembers who sacrificed him all those years ago, and now he is going to use Keelin to open the gate once again. TASTE OF DARKNESS was a great read, with action, romance and drama. I would recommend it to everyone. I give it 5/5 stars.
