Review: Sin's Dark Caress by Tracey O' Hara

Title: Sin's Dark Caress

Author: Tracey O'Hara

Publication: Harper Voyager

Release Date: July 31, 2012

Source: edelwewiss

Series:  Dark Brethren Bk 3

"An ancient darkness has risen from the ashes . . . and terror has been loosed upon an unsuspecting world."

Forensic witch Bianca Sin has never seen anything like it: homeless teenage girls torn to pieces by dark magic in the cold shadows of the city. More terrifying still is the symbol written in blood on an alley wall--the unmistakable seal of the Dark Brethren.

Teaming up with NYPD homicide detective Lancelot McManus and an elite task force headed by the shapeshifter Oberon DuPrie, Bianca knows her worst fears have finally come to pass. A new war of annihilation is looming that will plunge the worlds of vampire, shapeshifter, and human into chaos--and two adversarial tribes locked in uneasy truce will need to take up arms together to save the children. Trust will be essential for Sin and McManus, as the hunt forces them to confront their deepest terrors.

For the ultimate evil is no longer approaching.

 It's here.

                      Although Sin’s Dark Caress didn’t have any sex or any sexual tension for that matter (although the author did try), I enjoyed reading the 3rd in The Dark Brethren series. There was just so much going on that it was hard to miss what wasn’t there. But of course it was not labeled as a romance, nor was it labeled as having any kind of romantic element it in.

                      The plot was unmistakably riveting. I was so engrossed; I was hard-pressed to concentrate on my real life. My mind was always going back to the questions swirling around in my head; who exactly are the Dark Brethren? Will McManus and Bianca finally acknowledge their feelings towards one another? And what exactly who/what is McManus?

                    The ending was surprisingly unpredictable and supercharged. The dragon had me at hello. I almost cried…but then I realized dragons aren’t real.
