Unwanted and unpredictable but a useful tool for some, Keenan survives by hiding his powers until he is rescued by Rowan, King of the Vam’kir.

Darkness Entwined is the second book in the Of Blood and Spirit series. The plot’s theme is interracial wars. For centuries, there were two separate pure races. Vampires and shifters are both spiritual children of the light. The vampires considered themselves superior to the shifters. However, Rowan is a blend of both vampire and shifter, which is a source of contention for the vampire counsel.   Keenan is a mix of dark as well as light; he is not approved of by anyone. A proposal to form a treaty between the vampires and shifters meets with opposition from both sides. Nevertheless, the vampires and shifters must join forces to eradicate Roh Se Kahn, who is bent on destroying all creatures of the light.

Darkness Entwined is set in the current world with modern day weapons. The paranormal characters live amongst the humans, who are unaware of their existence. The difference between the species is the life spans and the ability of the paranormal’s speedy healing. Also magic plays an important part in the life of the paranormals.

Nikki McCoy has created an exciting, emotional as well as very enjoyable saga.  In the beginning Rowan and Keenan seem to be unlikely mates but as the story evolved, the reader can see how much of an asset each man is to the other. Together Rowan and Keenan form an unstoppable bond. Although Keenan has finally gained some respect, it is bittersweet because of the loss of his trusted friend. I look forward to the next book for answers regarding several unsolved dilemmas featured.
