If your soul has been plunged into the dark depths of despair, how hard would you fight to claw your way back to the surface? Can the life you lost be restored, or is it destined to be forever phased out of existence? Fated to dissolve into a distant memory.

The Black Market—a ferocious, starving beast. An endless sinkhole of precious valuables; the playground for blood-thirsty power seekers. Only one thing feeds its hunger like no other…human life.

A sinister criminal ring has descended on the small town of Norton Springs, instilling fear in the residents. A vicious wave of disappearances coupled with the gut-wrenching horror of infants being ripped from the arms of their helpless mothers has the town quaking in terror.

When Gabe Thornton strolls back into his hometown, his main goal is to claim the one woman that has always denied her feelings for him—Nora Jacobs. The last thing he expects is to be thrust into a storm of devastation and chaos. Will his strength be enough to save them from the dark souls that threaten to destroy their chance at happiness?

Broken futures. Shattered dreams. Mind-numbing loss. When your heart has been ripped away from you—how do you find the will to go on?

No one is safe. Everything you thought you knew is about to change in this second installment in The Darkness Series.

Warning: Due to adult content and graphic situations, this book is intended for readers 18 and up.



 ✯5 Dark Twisted Evil Stars!!!✯✯

What in the world did I just read??!! Cassia has one seriously dark and twisted mind I've seen in awhile!! When I first finished Malevolent I sat there with my jaw wide open. But, now with this..My heart was racing and I was screaming NOOOO!!!!! Cassia seriously likes making people yell at her dark and twisted ideas. Now that I'm complaining. 

Norton Springs used to be quiet and uneventful. Until recently. Lately, women have been getting kidnapped and babies have been kidnapped from their homes or hospital rooms. The cops have no idea who is behind any of this. Or why.

Nora Jacobs has taken over her families ranch. She plans on getting it back to where it use to before there was some issues. Her best friend and most trusted employee Theo Barrington keeps pressuring her to put added security to the ranch with everything going on. Nora probably wishes she had. Because, in strolls Gabe Thornton. Her first love. The guy she thought she was going to marry. Until one day he disappeared. Without even a goodbye.

Gabe has comeback to win Nora back. He knows she is the love of his life. Luckily for him he doesn't have to work too hard to win her over. But, while they try to get there they continue to get reacquainted. Over and over again. Man, where these two hot as hot can be. Gabe can't believe what is going on in his town since he left. Him and Theo insist on helping. Theo calls his friend Brady James. Yes, THE Brady James from Malevolent he's back and willing to help.

Brooke has been kidnapped.She is in a living nightmare. Nobody has the courage to fight like she does. There is nobody that has any idea where she could be. Nobody there can help or save her. Brooke only does what she knows possible. Fights. She continues to fight. Fingers crossed somebody shows up before its too late.

That's all I am going to give you about the plot and all that. I will tell you that not many authors can totally throw me for such a loop. Just when I knew what was next. Nope! When I was jumping for joy because it was going to end the way I'd hoped. That. Was a HUGE FUCK NO!!! Yes, I just yelled that. Cassia does not like the romance and doesn't like to give you stories that make you all warm and fuzzy on the inside. Instead she writes books that are dark, twisted and will totally fuck with her head on multiple levels!! This is her 2nd book and you would never know it. She's that good. I can't wait to see how this crazy twisted series ends!!

Excerpt


Gripping Red’s hand tight, the two ran up the stairs, Brooke wincing each time one of the boards squeaked under the pressure of their weight. At the top, the door was open, a fact that had Brooke’s heart jumping up her throat like it was on a damn trampoline. Peering out, she ensured there was no one in sight before tugging Red forward. A few steps into the carpeted foyer, the sound of voices drifted towards them. Panicking, she pulled Red into what she thought was an empty room and shut the door.

Panting, she leaned against the door, trying to catch her breath.

“We have to hide here, Red. I’ll check if it’s safe in a few minutes.” When there was no reply from Red, Brooke turned her head, searching. “Red?” The other woman stood frozen, unmoving in the middle of the room.

“What are you—ahh…” Brooke stepped up beside Red, concerned why she was non-verbal. The room was not empty as she had expected. It wasn’t empty at all and the scene before them was a terrifying one.

Cots. Rows and rows of cots and each one was occupied with a tiny infant. Some were sleeping, wrapped in thin blankets. Others were squirming, having come loose from their bundle. A few were wailing, a loud sound that would make any dog in the surrounding area sit up and take notice. How Brooke didn’t hear them, was beyond her. The adrenaline was a roar in her ears, blocking out everything except listening for footsteps of anyone that might be approaching. A quick count revealed twenty-four cots. Twenty-four babies either stolen are birthed by a mother that was likely a prisoner in the same house of horrors she was trying to escape from.

Covering her mouth, Brooke supressed a scream of disgust. Children. Helpless infants all lined up and ready to be sold by the indescribable monster, Marcus. An auction straight from a mother’s worst nightmare.

“Red,” she tried to get her attention. “Red,” she said with more force. When that still didn’t work, she reached out and lightly shook her. The haunted, empty look in her eyes when Red finally acknowledged her, broke Brooke’s heart into a million tiny pieces.

“My sons. My daughters…” she moved towards the cots. “I—I have to find them. I—I—I didn’t get to—to hold them,” she stammered, peering over the cots at the tiny faces. Her heartbreak was written all over her face as she searched from cot to cot for her children.

Not being able to stand seeing her torment, Brooke rushed to her side, trying to tug her away. “Red, I don’t think they are here now. These…these are infants. As in just born, and you—” Red’s head whipped around to pin Brooke with furious eyes.

“Shut up. You know nothin’. My children are here. They are here.” Tears sprang to Brooke’s eyes at the utter despair in Red’s voice.

“I really wish they were, God, Red. But I promise you, we will make these bastards pay. We will find your children and make sure they can never do this to any other woman,” Brooke’s promise was fierce and true. She would shut this operation down, even if it killed her to do it.
