Product Description

Complete Stand Alone/No Cliffhanger

Never met a male siren before?
You're about to…

I grew up as a prince…
And lead the life of a King.
There isn't anyone or anything that doesn't want me, that isn't attracted to me. They can't help it. And I sure as hell don't want them to. I live for their lust, I crave touch like an addiction, I make them beg on their knees for one, simple, caress.
As a male siren it's my job to feed off emotion.
And I was happy to do it.
I am happy to do it.
What I'm not happy about? Being told I have to mate with some withering human and stay loyal to that one person for the next few centuries. There's a war coming and being the idiot I am — I offered to take one for the team in order to help a friend.
Now my sexual appetite is taking a freaking kick in the nuts.
And I'm left wondering if it's worth it.
If she's worth it, with messy hair and dirty human hands.
But I have a world to save.
A job to do.
Now, if only, she would just let me do it rather than fighting me at every turn. I've lived lifetimes as the most irresistible being on the planet.
Only to meet my match.
With one.
They say Hell's hot. They're wrong.
Because Hope, my little human, is way hotter.
And before this is over — she may just singe me alive.

I love this series. Love the characters, love everything about it. I love how each book in the series contributes to the overall plot but is still able to stand alone as a perfectly awesome read. Can't wait to see what happens next

Dark Surrender is the third book in The Dark Ones Saga. It's a part of the series but can be read as a standalone. As I haven't read the first two books in this series yet, I wished had read them before this one as there is lots of background story which will only make complete sense if I had the whole concept of the story. I recommend that every reader should read these books in order. I will definitely be going back and reading the first two.

Alex is a seductive powerful siren who can have anyone in the world. Men, women, animals and plants are all attracted to him. When he is asked to help the dark war by finding a mate he agrees reluctantly. Hope is a failed gardener. She kills plants more than she saves them. She works in the compound for the immortals. When Alex choses hope for his mate, she is stunned. All she wants is to escape this whole mess, but instead she falls for the heartless siren. Will she be able to find a way to Alex's heart? Why does she feel so connected to him?

This book was so hot. The MMF sex scene between Mason, Alex and Hope was sizzling hot. I can't wait to read this whole series. A full 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars -- surprises and entertainment all wrapped up Dec 11 2016
By Rachel M - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Alex must mate in order to ensure that Mason has more time to grieve, but Alex is not looking forward to tying himself to one weak human for the next few hundred years. His appetite is bigger than one human can satisfy, has ever been able to satisfy, and as a siren who feeds off emotion, getting too close to humans can spell death for the human.

Hope thought she would get to work early to prove her worth. Gardening for the Immortals would be a much easier job if she had a green thumb at all. Now that she is tied to Alex, she is even more confused than she was before. Things she thought she knew become foggy and she soon realizes she doesn’t know nearly as much about herself as she thought.

Alex is such a complex character. As a siren, it would be easy to make him such a sexual creature that he couldn’t do anything else. And certainly, he is looking for a mate who can see him as more than a sexual being. But he wants to be loved, he wants a family, he wants what he sees between Ethan & Genesis and Cassius & Stephanie. But as Cassius has forced Alex’s hand to mate, he figures he will not find the love he seeks.

As this series has established, what started as a hesitant relationship based solely on immortal mating tradition quickly grew to more though each held back their true feelings in order to protect from hurt. The first person narration with alternating points of view give readers a good insight into each of the main characters.

Watching them navigate the present while Alex tried to reconcile himself with his painful past kept me turning pages from very early on. I was surprised by the direction of this story simply because I thought I knew where it was going, until Hope’s background shifts into something other than a simple human upbringing. Even when it was hinted that she was “other” I was surprised at the way all the little details blended to create her story.

While this is officially a standalone, it took me a bit to sort through the situation at the beginning of the story and new readers to the series might wonder why Alex is being forced to choose between three humans in a locked room. But once into the story, this does tell Alex and Hope’s story in a complete package without a lot of necessary background knowledge needed.

This was a quick read, with great tie ins to the previous books in the series. I can’t help but look forward to Mason’s story, especially with the few new pieces of his past that are revealed in Dark Surrender. This is one of a very few paranormal series I have read recently and it still doesn’t fail to entertain with it’s fantastical elements and depth of lore.

Alex's book is finally here!! OMG I was really intrigued to read about this sexy siren, and know his all story!!! and OMG all the things that I read in this book I didn't see coming!!

In this book he has to find his mate, just to give it more time to Mason to do the same.. but he thinks his mate will be a simple human.. but of surprisee the girl is no a human.. is another immortal creature that we didn't know anything about it the the others books!!

Hope is a girl who just think she's only in charge of take care of Cassius' plants but after reading the book you will know that doesn't is true... Like in the middle of the book you will discover like a HUGE secret that makes a lot of sense in the story!! and OMG I will say after that part for me this book was like a second chance romance, and it was sooo perfect!!

After a lot of drama, demons and really bad inmmortals Alex and Hope finally can have their HEA!!!! and this make me soo happy!! they deserve everything good in their life!!

Also in this book we can read that Mason started to have feelings that he really soon will need a mate ( I volunteer, just so you know Rachel) but he say he doesnt want one, because he's still sad for the death of his mate.

In the last part of this book we can have an idea about what will be Mason book!! and CAN'T wait to read it!! sounds soo goooooood!!! that part it was the most shocking for me!! :D :D

And another good news... is that this series will have 5 books!! Yay!! :D :D Can't wait for the next books!! and I'm so happy that the next one is about my lovely MASON!

Congrats Rachel for another amazing book!! :D :D

5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved Alex the Siren! Dec 15 2016

Dark Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken just surprised me and made me remember why I love this series so much. I can't get enough of these characters and this story. All of the main characters are absolutely amazing and each book I read gets me closer and closer to Mason. He has been my one true love since starting this book and I am so ready to meet him. Each book builds him up more and more and it gets me excited, but enough about Mason. Alex will get jealous of all the attention I am putting on Mason. LOL.

Alex. The siren. He was not what I expected. I loved and hated him. He was so amazing and being in his head just drove me insane with love. He is so deep and thoughtful and beautiful. He is also frustrating though and he about killed me with some of his actions. I am just so happy to have read his book.

As for the lovely Hope, she was such a strong character. Everything about her was so amazing. She knew how to handle situations and she felt so in control of things that were just coming her way. I loved how she accepted situations and went with it. She is one of my favorite leading ladies. I am so happy she was the one that Alex had to mate with. It was perfection.

Dark Surrender was the perfect story. Rachel Van Dyken just knows how to write amazing paranormal. She gets me every time with her books. I just love the way this story is unfolding and I am extremely excited to get the next book because I know what is coming next! Mason! My one true love. I can't wait!

4.0 out of 5 stars Alex has met his match! Dec 19 2016
By Shelley Haase - Published on

Dark Surrender is the third book in Rachel Van Dyken's The Dark Ones Saga. If you are a fan of this series, you will be happy to find Alex, the siren, has met his match. In order to make him his strongest, he must choose a mate. This of course is the very last thing a siren would want to do. Hope of course holds him off at every turn, making her the perfect human for the immortal who makes everyone bend to his will.

Rachel Van Dyken continues to write a great story filled with humor, loyalty and memorble characters. I can't wait to read more from this amazing author in the future!

‘Sex with Alex had been out of this world.
Making love with Alex – was going to alter my world.
Then again, that was what love did, wasn’t it?’ ಌ Hope

Minor spoilers alert!!!

The Immortals gang rally around Alex as he and Hope, his half-human and half-elf mate, try to figure out why they seem so familiar to each other and if any of their attraction goes beyond the irresistible sway Alex’s siren abilities have on any living thing. On top of that, there's the ongoing dark versus light war to deal with which is also why the Immortals have to mate and how they are strengthen as a result. Some really surprising details and outcomes were revealed as the Immortals regained their memories of past events and survived to continue to fight on the side of light.

I really enjoyed the banter between Mason and Alex tons. And that kind of threesome scene between Alex, Hope and Mason was really cleverly done and didn't disgust me as it could've done. Overall, I liked the multiple character point of views, humor, sexy scenes, and how the informative flashbacks worked really well with the quick pacing of this third installment in the Dark Ones series. I’m looking forward to reading how Mason’s torment ends with his vampire mate in the next standalone novel in this series.
