Sir Liam is in trouble as he has fallen in love with Leeza.  When she was a child, he helped her, then watched over her as she grew up.  He finds out she is just as interested in him as he with her, but the problem is that he is a Templar, who has lived over seven hundred years, with rules to follow.

Darkest Judgment is the third book in the Mythical Knights series.  The author lets us know a lot about how the Templars became immortal and about some of the laws they follow. It was interesting that the story also includes the older pantheon of gods and that the Templars can call on them, as well as the Devine as needed.

Keep plenty of tissues on hand as the end of the story draws near because some things that happen are tear jerkers.  There are also several twists that develop that will have a huge impact in the future.  I was surprised by what happened to the vicious vampire that has been causing a lot of the problems throughout this series.

The chemistry between Liam and Leeza is intense and it was fun watching the relationship between them develop.  Sir Liam is very conflicted, which was understandable due to what he is. Leeza’s reaction when she learned the extent of Liam’s protection was very realistic, but I loved her reactions later on. The twists at the end and the epilogue were heartwarming.  Liam’s partner’s, Sir Adrian, reaction was very realistic and understandable especially because of what happens earlier. 

The Mythical Knights series is one to be read again, and I am looking forward to how the author handles future stories, especially in light of several threads created in Darkest Judgement
