Release Date: September 24, 2019
I’ve always known pain. Existence. Night.
Made a sinner.
Without a soul to keep me tethered to the world I so desperately want to be a part of but am damned to rule…
Life isn’t living.
Not when everyone sees you as enemy number one, King of the demon race and yet something much more… powerful and sinister pulses beneath the surface of my skin.
It started when I met her, the power surging under my fingertips like the cruel universe was finally answering my screams at night for something more.
And just like that, the memories come, only I don’t know if they’re mine or someone else’s entirely.
Long ago, I made a bargain with a god.
A soul for a soul.
I spent thousands of years without this awareness and now?
Everything I touch turns to ash.
Even my own immortal friends fear what I am.
Everyone but her. The day to my night.
Part of me doesn’t want to know what I am.
But it’s too late, too all-consuming.
Darkness is coming.
That darkness, I’m afraid. Is me.

My Review of Darkest Sinner
Rachel Van Dyken’s storytelling abilities just keep getting better and better. The care she takes in building these worlds you can’t help but get sucked in and fall in love with the characters.
Timber has always been an interesting character – if you’ve read the previous books (unnecessary, though to enjoy Darkest Sinner). Is he evil? How did he get to be the demon he is now? Basically, who is Timber and what is his goal?
All these questions and more are right here in Rachel Van Dyken’s fabulous new story. Timber’s character has a depth I didn’t know was there, and RVD’s words wrapped around my heart and made me fall in love. Kyra is an interesting character; She’s a little lost, but something is brewing just under the surface. Watching Timber and Kyra’s story unfold felt like I was enjoying a good movie – the chosen words helped me envision the scenes and that kept me turning page after page to find out what happens.
The original characters (Cassius, Mason, Alex, Ethan, etc.) are all there to give Timber a hard time and watch as lives are once again about to change. The character I adore and want more from is Tarek – he’s funny, sarcastic, witty, and has a huge backstory that I’d like to read.
Darkest Sinner is an epic love story and is a must-read for any RVD fan.
