Piper Griffiths wants one thing in life: To become a Consul, a keeper of the peace between humans and daemons. There are three obstacles in her way.
The first is Lyre. Incubus. Hotter than hell and with a wicked streak to match. His greatest mission in life is to get Piper into bed and otherwise annoy the crap out of her. The second is Ash. Draconian. Powerful. Dangerous. He knows too much and reveals nothing. Also, disturbingly attractive — and scary. Did she mention scary?
The third is the Sahar Stone. Top secret magical weapon of mass destruction. Previously hidden in her Consulate until thieves broke in, went on a murder spree, and disappeared with the weapon.
And they left Piper to take the fall for their crimes.
Now she’s on the run, her dreams of becoming a Consul shattered and every daemon in the city gunning to kill her. She’s dead on her own, but there’s no one she can trust — no one except two entirely untrustworthy daemons ... See problems one and two.

“An intriguing story plot, full of exhilarating actions and interesting characters.”

I guess it has become a routine of mine, when I lose sleep for an excellent book.  Needless to say, I’ve stayed up till 4 AM to finish this book.  Chase the Dark was captivated and quite a page turner.  I did a happy dance after I discovered this book.  Chase the Dark was the first book of Steel & Stone series, and it definitely started with a bang.

From the start to the end I was enthralled by the story and how each of the scene unfolded.  I thought the way this book was written to really give you a clear picture of what the author is trying to show you, and keeps you fully engaged to the story.  It has a decent world building despite being the first book of the series.  The story plot was full of twist, suspense and surprises.  I thought little was predictable.

I loved when the female leading character isn’t one of those that waits around for someone else to save her.  Piper Griffiths was the daughter of the head Consul, and a half-human and half-demon, haemons.  She was simply kick ass, a leveled headed strong character.  Even at her disadvantage of lacking magic ability, she makes up for it with her remarkable combat skill and quick thinking.

Then there were Lyre and Ash, two demons that shared a special bond with Piper while they were on the run and trying to clear their names.  I am definitely looking forward to learning more about Lyre and Ash.  The way these three interacts with each other was highly entertaining.  The adventure they shared have left Piper rethinking of her belief in Demons.  Piper also learned something new and curious about herself, I can’t wait to see what happen in the next book.

The only part that may involve some rolling eyes gesture, was the epic melodramatic full on freak out that Piper had.  Other than that I was perfectly happy with everything else.

Chase the Dark has an intriguing story plot, full of exhilarating action and interesting characters.  I think fans of Ms Scarlett Dawn’s Forevermore series would really enjoy this book

Happy Reading!! XO

Annette Marie is the author of the Amazon best-selling YA urban fantasy series Steel & Stone, which includes the 2015 Goodreads Choice Award nominee Yield the Night. Her first love is fantasy, a limitless realm of creativity where she can break all the boring rules of real life, but fast-paced urban fantasy, bold heroines, and tantalizing forbidden romances are her guilty pleasures. She proudly admits she has a thing for dragons, and her editor has politely inquired as to whether she intends to include them in every book.

Annette lives in the frozen winter wasteland of northern Alberta, Canada (okay, it’s not quite that bad). She shares her life with her remarkably patient, comparatively sensible husband and their furry minion of darkness—sorry, cat—Caesar. When not writing, she can be found elbow-deep in one art project or another while blissfully ignoring all adult responsibilities.
