Publisher's Summary

"I wasn't demon enough to defeat my brother before. Things have changed."

As the veil begins to fall and the demons bleed through onto the streets of Boston, Muse knows the battle is lost before it's even begun.

To make matters worse, Adam and the Institute have captured Akil at a time when the city has never needed him more. Muse believes Akil's incarceration is a ruse, because if he truly is at the mercy of the Institute, she must choose which side she'll fight for. Human or demon?

The princes are coming. Muse's immortal half-brother, Valenti, leads the charge. The Institute is not ready, the people of Boston are not prepared, but one man is. Stefan knows what it will take to beat back the netherworld. Will his demon allow him the freedom to right his wrongs?

Muse's loyalty will be tested. To save those she loves, she must give up that which she cherishes most: her humanity.

The Mother of Destruction is about to go nuclear.

    "Great series "

    What a hell of a life Muse is having. I like happy endings hopefully that will happen in the next book cause this one sure doesn’t have one.

    "Compelling, heart breaking"

    Oh no no please bring back Ahkeel I can't believed his gone. The mother of destruction wasn't able to save his love, this story is addictive, mesmerising and compelling and Hollie Jackson is one of the best narrator i have heard so far, she brings so
    Much raw emotion in her voice and brings each character to life. Thanks Pippa for inviting us into your fantastical and magical world. X

    "Great Book #4"

    Love this series. I haven't read one in this series in several months, but it was easy to pick up the story where the last book left off. There is enough mention of previous events to bring me back in line. Pippa is an excellent author. She does a great job with the story line and the characters. The narrator does a great job as well.

    "Interesting story line"

    I was intrigued by the story line and characters. The primary character is a bit winey but overall interesting. I enjoyed the interplay between her and the various characters. The idea that our world and hell are only a veil apart was intriguing. I look forward to reading the rest of the stories. Luckily all five are now available. Onward to the next.

    "Sleeper Series. That is outstanding"

    Can you say marathon. I could not sleep without these books. I spent every moment trying to see what was going to happen next. I felt confused and conflicted as the characters. I agreed and disagreed with there decisions at the same time. Finally, it is my believe that any book that brings you in so completely that you are dripping tears for the characters lost is excellent. It speaks to a job well done. This was indeed a great series. And this is a great book. I want everyone to read it so we can discuss it.

    "Fantasy - DaCosta Style"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this audiobook - the story itself is stellar. The characters are well developed, the sense of "realities" in the locations are fully fleshed out. There is the benefit of being able to drown out traffic, conversation on the train - definitely awesome.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Drowning in the Dark?

    One of the most memorable moments in this book was when Akil watches Muse fighting the lesser demon in the alley. It was memorable because Akil is speaking to himself, admitting that nothing in his existence has or would ever help him to understand Muse. Everything that he is telling himself is about he loves her without using those words. He talks about how he needs her and while he gets his wants, he doesn't understand this need to possess her - to expel Damian from her and join with her himself, both with her soul and physically. The fact that this prince of hell isn't supposed to feel, but reveals how much he does love Muse - that this is beyond his being the Prince of Greed, this is something more. More.


    What does Hollie Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her characterizations and ability to become the characters themselves was spectacular! I was very impressed because even if there wasn't something spoken to indicate who would be speaking - the characters were easily identifiable just from the different "voices".


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to this book all in one sitting. I downloaded the bundle of the first three books in late May, but didn't start listening until about a week ago. Immediately I went online and downloaded this next book in the series - no way was I going to wait any longer than necessary! LOL! I'm an immediate gratification girl! :-)


    Any additional comments?

    This book was as good, if not better, than it's predecessors. What an amazing series and I am so happy to have found it - wish I'd found it sooner, but then I would have had to wait for the other books to come out so maybe from that perspective it was worth finding it all at once now. Only bad thing about that is that the series is now over - hoping Ms. DaCosta finds a way to bring Akil back! :))

    The story moves along well. I just find the books too short. I've downloaded all 5.

    "Great story"

    I'm really impressed with the narrator. She does an excellent job expressing the characters. I usually don't read/listen to science fiction. I am glad I started reading this series. This series so far has been fast paced and action packed. I will definitely read more from this author.

    "Each book is better than the previous one"

    This series gets better and better. I love how the characters keep growing and changing. There was a little sadness in this book that I wasn't expecting. But, I see why it was necessary. I can't wait to see how things evolve in the next book.

    "An excellent continuation of Muse's story."

    A great narrator with a gift for voices adds greatly to this series. If you're a fan of the first three books you won't be disappointed.

    "almost love it!"

    I really do love the storyline throughout this series and for the most part think it's fantastic. But the books do have a tendency to go on about the insignificant in parts making me feel like screaming get on with it! the overall story is great and I will continue to read more, but I do find it as much frustrating as I enjoy listening to it.

    the narrator I have to say is fantastic, she reads every character so well, they are individual and distinct when often, by other narrators characters can sound like the same person.

    the Muse and Stefan relationship is driving me nuts, how many times is she going to leave him behind or abandon him, seriously. while I get how messed up her relationship with Akiel is and that it clouds her thinking, come on the Stefan thing has been drawn out way too long for my liking, and yet I'll have to keep listening to find out if it gets resolved or will continue to do my head in! clever lol
