Blog Tour: Dwellers of Darkness by Stacey Marie Brown (Review+Giveaway)

Dwellers of Darkness by Stacey Marie Brown 
(Darkness #3) 
Publication date: February 27th 2014 
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance

Some days feel like years, but in Ember Brycin’s case just the opposite is true. She had only been in the Otherworld for a day or two when she returned back to the Earth’s realm. But it is three years later on Earth. Em is now 22. It would matter if she was human, but she’s not. She is a Dae, part Demon and part Fay, with a little Dark Dweller thrown in to make her even more of a freak.

Seeing Seattle rebuilt only confirms she has been gone three years. For her it was not long ago that the Seattle area was just rubble of concrete and death. All done by her hand.

One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is her undeniable connection to Eli Dragen, who is sexy, gorgeous, and even more volatile and frustrating. But her problems go way past him. The Seelie Queen of the Otherworld still holds Mark, Em’s father, and her friends, Ryan, and Josh as hostages. Em needs to rescue them without, once again, getting caught and being used as a pawn to help the Queen regain possession of Earth. At the same time Ember is in hot water with Lars, the Unseelie King, after breaking her contract with him.

As some secrets have come to light others seem to become even more enigmatic. The only truth Ember knows is,everyone is harboring secrets. As Eli’s past is revealed, Em understands more clearly why he acts the way he does and how much their lives are intertwined. But she also knows Eli is holding something back, something that could change their relationship forever.

Em herself continues to wrestle with her feelings toward Torin and her own secret she’s withholding from Kennedy. As the tension for war mounts between the Seelie and Unseelie (Light and Dark), the tension at the Dark Dweller’s compound mounts even more as they prepare to obtain the sword no matter what the price. 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.

My Review:

   This is one of my favorite paranormal series ever! I am soo glad I get to read this amazing and awesome book! As you may know I was in a blog tours for the previous two books, and I LOVED Darkness of Light and I LIKED Fire in The Darkness, but Dwellers of Darkness? Well it was between love and hate. I loved it and at times hated it at the same time. I loved how more adventurous it  was and that we get to know the real faces of the characters...get to know their secrets, even if there are a lot more to uncover in the next book.

***Small Spoilers***
As you know in the end of book two Ember returns from Outer World and it is three years passed on Earth since she's been gone. Ember has a lot to deal with...especially when it comes to Eli because he was beyond pissed and quite an asshole.

    So Ember has a lot going on in this book. She didn't handle things as good as I thought she would. That's where the hate parts comes in....I was really annoyed with Ember through out half of the book. She just made a lot of bad choices and asshole moves. I felt like she didn't care much about things, well except for drama  between Eli and Torin. Torin...I kind of liked him before but in this book, he was scaring me in a bad way. He was just soo obsessed with Ember that it was to much. 

“You feel the draw toward both. You are connected to them. But one has you, and you have the other.”

    Eli on the other hand, he made me love him even more and I don't even know how that is possible. Is it bad that I will say that his totally asshole mode was kind of a turn on. Of course I loved when Eli and Ember had conversations, which i will be honest is one of the best thing ever in this book. I love their connection, and attraction towards each other...also all of that sexual tension and remarks. 

“Okay, fuck-toy, grab my meat stick.” He handed me another skewer from the fridge. He seized my legs and flung me over his shoulder.
“Geez, how many sexual innuendoes can you stuff into one sentence?” Laughing, I folded over his shoulder. 
“I’m a genius with them."

They are perfect for each other. I really enjoyed their roller coaster of feeling in Dwellers of Darkness. I can't wait for more of them in the next book!

  The thing that I also love about this series is the plot line. The story is really amazing and it has a lot of adventure and surprises to keep you wanting more. Even if its a little predictable at times, it is still amazing  because of the way the story is written. 
    In conclusion, this book was a ride with a few bumps, but it was am awesome ride. I can't wait till the next book, since this book ended the way it ended, the wait for the next one might kill me. I definitely can't wait for more of Eli, I just love that piece of a man.

Darkness of Light  by Stacey Marie Brown
(Darkness #1)
Publication date: February 13th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance

My Review HERE

Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo.

Ember Brycin has been called them all. She’s always known she’s different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her.

When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for trouble teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who’s hot as hell and darkly mysterious. Their connection is full of passion, danger, and secrets. Secrets that will not only change her life, but what and who she is—leading her down a path she never imagined possible.

Between Light and Dark, Ember finds a world where truth and knowledge are power and no one can be trusted. But her survival depends on finding out the truth about herself. In her pursuit, she is forced between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren’t always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she’ll definitely wish she could.

Fire in the Darkness by Stacey Marie Brown
(Darkness #2)
Publication date: August 31st 2013
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance

My Review HERE

It's been four weeks since Ember Brycin witnessed what her powers are capable of. The Electrical Current Storm has turned Seattle, Washington into a natural disaster zone. The death toll is in the thousands with countless others homeless and hungry.

And Ember is the one who caused it. Something she will have to live with every day.

Those people who were unable to escape either turned quickly into gangs or live in shelters. Ember, on the other hand, can’t do either. With a price on her head and a Dark Dweller on her ass, she is constantly on the move. Both Light and Dark are hunting her for their own purpose to use her as a weapon or a pawn in the war between the Unseelie King of the Dark and the Seelie Queen of the Light.

Em needs help but doesn’t know who to trust: Lars, the mystery man Torin told her to find? Torin, the Seelie Queen’s personal knight, who has sworn to keep Em safe? Or Eli, who wants to turn her over to the Unseelie King, but whom she has an undeniable, intense connection with?

No matter what she chooses she will probably lose—her life or everything and everyone she loves.


Stacey Marie Brown by day is an Interior/Set Designer, by night a writer of Paranormal Fantasy, Adventure, and Literary Fiction. She grew up in Northern California, where she ran around on her family’s farm, raising animals, riding horses, playing flashlight tag, and turning hay bales into cool forts. Even before she could write, she was creating stories and making up intricate fantasies. Writing came as easy as breathing. She later turned that passion into acting, living and traveling abroad, and designing. Though she had never stopped writing, moving back to San Francisco seemed to have brought it back to the forefront and this time it would not be ignored.

When she’s not writing she’s out hiking, spending time with friends, traveling, listening to music, or designing.
