Vampire Jordan Silva is fed up with following the orders of the psycho vampire Dalton Gray, so when he is ordered to kill a fragile shifter child, Jordan’s passive attitude snapped. Determined to save the child even if it means his death at the hands of the wolves, Jordan delivers his precious bundle to Alpha Marcus Deleon. However, instead of killing Jordan, Marcus claimed his vampire mate Jordan. 

Atonement is the third book in the Dark Reign series. In this episode, Marcus immediately realizes that Jordan is his mate, though he is determined to delay personal issues in favor of completing the primary mission of bringing down vampire leader Dalton Gray. However, Marcus’ wolf decides claiming Jordan should be the main goal. The wolf side of Marcus wins the internal battle in an exceptionally pleasurable display of intimacy. Jordan is burdened with his regrettable past. Mating with Marcus resolves those issues and allows him some self-esteem, missing from most of his vampire life. 

Mychael Black has created another superb installment to this series. Atonement is an exceedingly enjoyable illustration of dramatic moments, heartwarming characters as well as a happily-ever-after climax.
