Dusk by Alyssa Rose Ivy (Dire Chronicles, book 2)

I have received an ARC copy from the author for an honest review.

Finally the second book is here!!! After 1st part, where Alyssa showed the readers that she can write a bit darker books, I was left impatiently waiting for the next part.


After you have sacrificed your freedom what else is there to lose?

Mary Anne has given her word to Hunter that she’ll stay as his mate, but every second she spends with him takes her further away from Gage when he needs her the most.

Caught between love and duty, Mary Anne discovers that her troubles are just beginning, and that sometimes love comes at a great price.


The book picks up, where the last book has left: after the rescue mission, where Hunter has saved Gage from the crazy witches. And Gage wakes up, not entirely as himself. Even though he feels stronger, more powerful – keeping control is an issue. A big issue. And learning what Mary Anne has promised to Hunter, so he can be saved is not helping him to stay calm. Especially when he realised that his feelings for the girl are deeper than any of them thought. But to keep them both safe and to make sure that Hunter will finish what he started, he pretends not to have any feelings at all. But by doing it the very girl is hurt.

Mary Anne, after agreeing to be Hunter’s mate in exchange for rescuing Gage, finds herself in the situation, where she feels like a prisoner with no way out. She is not allowed to talk to Gage, check on him to ensure he is fine and simply doesn’t blame or even hate her. It doesn’t help that she starts to respond to Hunter’s touch, even when she doesn’t want to. She doesn’t love him, but there is a slight attraction there. But after one dream and watching news, something breaks in her and she is trying to question Hunter’s resolve that she is THE ONE.

Hunter, he is one sexy guy, but for me he is just too convinced that Mary Anne is his girl from the dreams and is meant for him. He is not really trying to see the real her. Until one night when she whispers not his, but Gage name. After that he is even more possessive, but also in a way cold towards her. He is set that she is the destined one and she is the one that will help him stop the hunt.

After one night, where Mary Anne and Hunter have a date that does not end well and Gage looses his temper. And let’s just say Levi and Allie show up 😀 But after that all hell’s break through and Mary Anne and Gage have to run and hide.

The book is amazing. Much better then the first one! And first one was really good. I can’t wait for the next part and see where this will lead!
