Publisher's Summary

Some days feel like years, but in Ember Brycin's case just the opposite is true. Em would be 22 now - if she were human. She's not. She is a Dae - part Demon and part Fay - with a little Dark Dweller thrown in to make her more of a freak.

Life has become more complicated for Ember since returning from the Otherworld. Besides being continuously hunted by the Seelie Queen, Ember is at the top of the Unseelie King's list, after breaking her oath with him. No one breaks a vow with the Unseelie King without extreme consequences.

Adding to Ember's problems is a certain Dark Dweller whose mood has become violent and cruel. As much as she'd like to deny it, there is an undeniable connection between them. Eli is sexy, gorgeous, and frustrating as hell. She also knows he is holding something back, something that could change their relationship forever.

But her problems go way past him. As the tension for war mounts between the Seelie and Unseelie (Light and Dark), the tension at the Dark Dweller's compound escalates even more as they prepare to obtain the Sword of Light - the only weapon able to kill the Queen.

But is Ember the answer to the location of the sword? Is she the one to fulfill the prophecy? As usual, nothing is ever what it seems.

was not my favorite installment

Dwellers of Darkness is the third book in the young adult/new adult paranormal fantasy series by Stacey Marie Brown. They really should be read in order. It is the story of Ember Brycin who has discovered that she is part fay and part demon and has unwillingly become embroiled in a battle between Light, the Seelie, and Dark, the Unseelie.

In this installment, Ember has returned from the Otherworld with her Mum Lily, who I found to be a rather unlikeable character for a mother, and with her best friend Kennedy, who is starting to play a significant role. Ember is back with the Dark Dwellers and moody, badass Eli who is marginally annoyed with her for having vanished for three years because time moves at a different pace on earth. I have to admit the repetitive arguing - sex - arguing - sex between Ember and Eli became a tad maddening at times. But Cal and Simmon, the two pixies, added some lovely humor to the story and have become my favorite characters alongside Eli, of course. For a while, there did not seem to be much happening plot-wise, but then the pace picked up and the plot moved forward and so, thankfully, did Ember and Eli's relationship. Ember is determined to rescue her Dad and captive friends from the Seelie Queen. Together with a diverse group of friends, family, and foe, she sets off to find a sword that can kill the Queen. Due to the obvious foreshadowing, the developments at the end of the book were not as surprising as I would have liked. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed listening to this, but it was not my favorite installment of the series. The story continues in "Blood Beyond Darkness", which is the final part of this series, and I will definitely pick it up in the future.

Michelle Sparks continues her excellent performance of this series. She really brings these characters to life and gets all the emotion across in a wonderful manner. Her pacing is superb and she is a great fit for Ember. Excellent narration. There were no issues with the production quality.

WHEN IS THIS GOING TO STOP

WHEN IS SHE GOING TO STOP MAKING STUPID CHOICES?? THE BACK & FORTH & STUPIDITY IS OK IN THE FIRST BOOK cause we are learning the dynamic of the characters! However AFTER AT LEAST HALF THE SECOND BOOK THEY SHOULD GET SMARTER & STRONGER!!

This book and series will just draw you in!

And the story, and action, and adventure continue in Dwellers of Darkness. I feel each book is pivotal in this series and this book is no different. We continue to learn more about Ember and her story and history and what needs to happen. I have loved every minute of listening to this book and the rest of the series. And the narration is fantastic.

Such a good book!

This is the third book in the series and it just keeps getting better and better. More thrilling. More enticing. I can't wait to see how this story ends!

Amazing!

I work outside and listening to music was always my go-to. Lately, that hasn't been the case because I cannot get enough of this series! All the creatures, "Fae", are so interesting to hear about. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy books!

What's not to love...

This the 3rd book in the series kept me on the edge as I twisted and turned through the adventure that Ember and Eli have to go through. I learned more about Ember's past and how her story is intertwined with those around her.

Not sure if i am enjoying this series

the heroine is easily annoying... i mean after reading and absolutely loving the other series by the same author i thought i would love this... but i am struggling. towards the end of this book with Josh (spoiler) i mean it was evident that he was on the other side but alas... the annoying predictability of the main character uuuggghhhhh ... being stupid is just not helping this book. the good thing is that its audible if i was reading this i would have tossed the book away... its fiustrating. Love you ms Brown but this was not great. saving grace is my love for the other series which made me keen to read this... no words reallly.

A Waste Of Time

Of the three books that I have read so far, this one is the weakest. Even though the book lasted 11 hours, the plot didn't really move forward. Once again, I skipped ahead several times, as the author repeated the plot of the previous book over and over again. I'm not sure why this book was written. Anyway, unless you are truly invested in this story, you can skip this book and go on to the next one.

Narrator has improved since 1st book...

The narrator has improved greatly since the first book in the serious and I find myself captivated and immersed in the story. I love Stacey Marie Brown and I'm glad I continued despite what many people said in their reviews for the 1st in the series. I'm sad that I'm headed into the final book and there's nothing more to listen to. West isn't on Audible yet so maybe I'll start listening to this series again or restart the Collector series (which is amazing!)
