Publisher's Summary

They’ll do anything to protect her...as long as they never learn her secret.

I’m Officer Essie Shaw, and I shouldn’t exist. If anyone finds out their friendly neighborhood beat cop is a nephilim - public enemy number one - I’ll be imprisoned. Or worse, dissected. I survive by keeping my head down and my barely there magic under wraps.

But when I lose a fight with a strange, smoke-like wraith, I’m confronted with my worst nightmare. A Joined Parliament Team of Agents - supernatural monster hunters who’d arrest me in a heartbeat if they knew the truth - a no-nonsense angel whose mere gaze captures my soul, a vampire with a breathtaking bite, an incubus with enticing hellfire in his eyes, and, worst of all, my smoldering-hot ex-partner, turned werewolf thanks to my rookie mistake.

This wraith has been picking off veterans of the recently won war against the archangel Michael, and the bodies are piling up. My unwanted connection to it, along with the team’s skills, could be the key to trapping it in magical stasis. Question is, am I strong enough to serve as bait, while keeping the secret that could brand me their enemy?

Destined Darkness is the first book in the Nephilim’s Destiny series, an action-packed full-length paranormal romance with four irresistible guys and a kick-ass heroine who doesn’t have to choose.

I couldn’t finish

I started this book because I had previously listened to a narration with Lucas webley and LOVED it. This one, not so much. He wasn’t bad but I couldn’t get past the other voices. Just not my cup of tea.

Just ok 🤷🏻‍♀️

The performance of the characters was decent, I liked having both a male and female read for the different characters. The storyline though was meh...could of been a lot worse I guess but wasn’t great. Maybe this was just because it was building up to something more happening in the second book/rest of series but I still feel like this first installment could have been a lot stronger.

Fantastic!

The voices are perfect, and I love how they used multiple voice actors. They were able to bring the book to life in a way I didn’t get from just read the series. I definitely recommend you buy the audiobook if you liked the series.

This is a must have!

I love the book version. It's on my frequently read list. After listening to the audio version, it will definitely be added to my listen again list.

The narration is amazing. It really brought the story to life. I look forward to having the entire series in audio form.

Cute Story

This could have been awesome, but it seems a bit more young romance than adult.

maybe wait to binge? but likeable

decent story with great potential but it just leaves you wanting the next book. it's not a story you'd listen to again and again for it's own sake. it's a teaser.

Must Listen Book Highly Recommend

I loved this book on its own, but bringing it to life to all the characters with the three narrators this book was amazing, I fell in love with it all over again.
