    One thought on “Darkness”

    1. I've read quite a few books by this author and I found her latest book, Darkness a bit of a disappointments, still on the "disappointing" reading stage right now!!!The plot was interesting and I found the setting really greatbut helll that detailed info about the settingl the flowers and birds and animalsd the storm and the "furious" sea waves.on and on!!!! All that telling drove me absolutely nuts!!!And worse was all about the characters thoughts and inner dialoguesI prefer more dialogue than w [...]

    2. It is so surprising what risque things one can do with a bullet in the hip and only one Tylenol.I'll get back to you on that one later.Dr. Gina Sullivan is a renowned ornithologist working with a group on the remote island of Attu on the Alaskan coast. They are researching the effects of pollution on the bird population. Well, now you've got my attention with a woman scientist and anything to do with my beloved Alaska.Gina is perched on the bow of her small boat with binoculars in hand. Suddenly [...]

    3. I'm quitting this book at 33%; we're just not clicking. Why is the cover bright pink?? The title is "Darkness," and the story is set in Alaska, in November, in a blizzard. *Head scratch* (Not the reason for the DNF, just curious!) The suspense part was promising, but unfortunately the romance part ruined it for me. Cal was an alpha-hole from the beginning. Luckily Gina did stand up to him, though she should have just left him bobbing in the Bering Sea. Trying to write in sexy chemistry between t [...]

    4. full review amidlifewife/darkness-kare For me, it is a bit hard to write a review for an author that has literally hundreds of books under their belt. Ms. Robards clearly has the secret touch when it comes to iconic storytelling and this is one book that proves it over and over.From the very first page, I was hooked hard into this book. The depth of description transports you right into the story and keeps you there throughout the entire novel. I literally read this in one sitting because I was [...]

    5. DARKNESSWritten by Karen RobardsMARCH 29, 2016; 384 PagesGenre: romantic suspense, thriller, mystery(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.)★★★Dr. Gina Sullivan is a renowned ornithologist on a group research grant trip on the remote island of Attu, Alaska. One day while she is gathering research she hears a BOOM and see a plane go down. When she goes to see the wreckage there is a survivora man named, Cal. Cal mistrusts Gina so will not share anything of hi [...]

    6. I read this in paperback by Hodder. There is a storm brewing in this story all right! I found Darkness very suspenseful. Dr. Gina Sullivan watched a pair of rare eagles disappear into the gathering storm clouds, when she see a small plane descending towards the sea. Battling the waves with her boat, Gina set off rescuing a man from the stormy sea. He could be dangerous. Their eyes locked. There was no mistaking his eyes were hard. Brutal. Deadly. Darkness has it all as a thriller-romance. I reco [...]

    7. Darkness- A Thriller- by Karen Robards is a 2016 Gallery Books publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher, as an XOXpert, the official street team of XOXO After Dark. Karen Robards’ is one of those authors who writes across several romance genres. But, she seems to have settled into a nice groove with her romantic suspense novels. Gina Sullivan is an ornithologist on the island of Attu, Alaska, along with a small group of researchers, when she witnesses the crash of a sma [...]

    8. ARC provided by the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.The set up for this book is one of the "ripped from the headlines" setups. Then, the plot takes a very sinister twist. My beef is the narrative that marred the first 30% of the book. I prefer to get on with the story instead focusing on the minutia of details regarding the flora, fauna, the ocean, the approaching storm and the rescue after the plane crash. Add to that the survival details and it was a slow beginning. Ab [...]

    9. Mi problema con esta historia han sido las repeticiones. Han sido tan extenuantes que he hecho lo que jamás había hecho hasta ahora: contarlas.Realmente no soy fan del insta-lust, pero si está bien hecho me gusta como al que más, este no ha sido el caso. He sentido como si me forzasen a tragar el romance con un embudo. Es todo tan superfluo y banal, todo tan superficial, tan físico, que los protagonistas parecen caricaturas. No me ha gustado la escena en la que él la cachea. No me parece r [...]

    10. Originally reviewed at The Book Adventures.I’ve been on a bit of a romantic suspense kick as of late (see Shattered Duty), so Robards’ Darkness really appealed. Stranded on a desolate island in Alaska, plus a mysterious hot dude, what wouldn’t work? For me, something was missing. The setting and thriller elements were off the charts, but the romance was a little lackluster.Dr. Gina Sullivan is an ornithologist studying the wildlife on Attu island and when a plane crashes pretty much right [...]

    11. So this is a work of fiction. I get it. But shouldn't it be at least a little bit believable?What the author would have you believe is that a man can be shot in the side, then have the plane he is flying in blown out of the sky by a surface to air missile, end up in cold water around Alaska, all kinda back to back and still be able to do a wide variety of perilous and strenuous acts (parachuting, hiking up "Mt Terrible", stealing a plane) with very little sleep, food, water, and only Tylenol for [...]

    12. This is the first book I've read by Karen Robards which is a little surprising since I adore the romantic suspense genre. Well, looks like I've found a new author that I'll be following because this book was BAD. ASS. I love this genre because you're never really sure how the book is going to play out. Sometimes it really focuses on the suspense, sometimes it really focuses on the romance and sometimes it's both. You're never totally sure which way it's going to be spun until you're white knuckl [...]

    13. Dr. Gina Sullivan is a ornithologist who is working in an island called Attu with her other colleagues when she sees a plane crash in the sea and she goes to rescue him. But she and James MacArthur Callahan aka Cal will be prove in the island and try to survive. But they don't know who is after them and why just know that if they are catch they will die.Gina is a surviver she has some trauma in her past but she is still suffer.I like her character she question Cal and of course try to help. She [...]

    14. 3.5 Stars - rounded upThis book starts out strong and I was immediately pulled into the story. Gina is a ornithologist on a research expedition with 11 other professionals. The worse thing they were supposed to be fighting was the unfriendly weather conditions of Attu Island. Instead Gina is faced with crash landing planes, rescuing a hunky stranger(Cal) and a large group of bad guys who murdered her friends and want her on the dead list. I liked the plot of this book and the pace moved along an [...]

    15. I was expecting an adventure mystery and i ended up with a cheesy romance that wasn't even well written. Surely the author could have come up with something better than the repetitive use of "he's so masculine" "he's all male" "he's huge"over and over and over again.The romance was annoying, it was totally not practicalyou're being hunted by Russian assassins with tracking dogs, but you have time to stop and make out. OH an d you've been shot but you're gonna carry some dumb woman around?And I'm [...]

    16. I can say with perfect honesty that Robards writes a better RS these days than historical romance. The last historical romance I read of hers had me completely bored. Her RS books, on the other hand, always keep me interested. I have skipped over the Charlie Featherstone books because the first one skeeved me out too much, but I still enjoy her stand alone suspense novels. Darkness was no exception. This book had me hooked from the first page. It starts off with a horrible tragedy which sucks yo [...]

    17. Seriously surprised how much I enjoyed this one. There's a theme of plane crashes that runs through the book. The setting: an ornithologist and a 'private contractor' stranded on an isolated, icy island in Alaska trying to stay away from the bad guys while battling the elements. I was wondering whether there would be enough there to make this into a gripping romantic suspense story considering the majority of the plot involves the two main characters interacting. But wow, Karen Robards surely di [...]

    18. Darkness is a sexy, action-packed book that grips you from the very beginning and doesn't let you go. My only complaint is that the ending was a bit rushed (although that could just be me not wanting it to end). Gina and Cal are both strong characters. Gina is an ornothologist who gets caught up in a storm while following an eagle that's recently been released. On her way back to camp she witnesses a plane crash where Cal is the sole survivor of a mission gone terribly wrong. Gina saves him but [...]

    19. When Gina sees a plane shot down out of the sky, she's horrified. That she's in the frigid waters off a remote Alaskan island makes this even more difficult. She manages to save the lone survivor, Cal, and the adventure begins. This fast-paced thriller kept me turning the pages. And, of course, it was a romance. The characters are interesting but I sometimes felt that the sexual tension was a little forced. Okay, so we've all realized sex sells. But don't push it just because we think readers ex [...]

    20. Very good story with likable MC's. It was interesting and exciting. The author's writing and description of the weather and surroundings made me feel as if I was there, experiencing the deathly cold and fear that the characters would have felt.Although I enjoyed this, it reads like a Harlequin romantic suspense story only longer. I'm just not sure I would recommend anyone purchasing this book for $12.99. I guess it costs so much because it is written by a big name author. I would recommend check [...]

    21. Fast paced, great storyline & loveable "real" characters. Reeeealllly enjoyed this! :)

    22. This is odd to say, especially considering Robards is conventionally a romance novelist, but this story would have worked so much betterwithoutthe romance. As it was, the romantic moments felt awkward and forced. And the problem was compounded by the unnatural sounding dialogue, and trite one-liners. My personal favorite (or rather, least favorite) was:He loved her back to sleep.And no, that was not some kind of sexual innuendo. Just a crapload of sappy bullshit. Honestly, I could see this worki [...]

    23. So vanilla.I had a hard time getting involved in the story because the characters were not believable in the least.The story was very straightforward, without tension, mystery or action.An ok way to pass the time during a long train trip, but I'm not keen on investing further money and time on this author.

    24. Great story line and suspense to keep me interested. Lots of repetitive love scenes, but overall one of the best books I've read all year.

    25. This book was fantastic! I have only three or four-ish problems with it, and honestly, they're nitpicking, because it was overall a solid piece of work, in my opinion. I may reveal a few spoilers.First and most inconsequential, the cover design. It's beautiful, I absolutely love it--hot pink is my favorite color!--but it 100% clashes with the content and the title. It looks whimsical and seductive and feminine and sexy--which is perfect, for a novel of pure, flowery, cheesy romance. But this is [...]

    26. I recently became a fan of Robards writing and this one definitely sounded interesting from the blurb. From the beginning of this book I was captured into the world that was created but I had some mixed feelings when it was over. We meet Gina who is on the island of Attu, Alaska with a team of other researchers. While in the middle of a study she witnessed a small airplane going to crash which brings back memories of her own crash that happened 5 years earlier. Knowing their could be survivors s [...]

    27. From the first page, this story reached out and yelled GOTCHA! I will admit, this is my favorite type of weekend read. A great mystery, a gripping plot, a strong female lead with a hint of vulnerability, and a take charge hero who is great to look at! Karen Robards is a master at developing a roller coaster thrill ride and this book definitely was one.The reason why this genre appeals to women so well is that we all have that secret fantasy of being rescued by a hot alpha male who will save our [...]

    28. She was human. She was female. She was alive. And he was smoking hot. She couldn't help the tingle of sexual awareness that pulsed to life inside her.I won this book from the First Reads in exchange for a fair review, yadda yadda yadda (I won it in November, but it took over two months to get to me, and by then I was in the middle of a bunch of other books, so I'm only now getting to it.) I wrote out a long detailed review for this, then my iPad froze up, and closed the app, and I lost everythi [...]

    29. **advance reader copy received via NetGalley**This was my first Karen Robards read, and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Darkness is a romantic suspense with military, political, and…ornithological tones. Haha. That last piece may not necessarily be exactly what you look for in a romance, but the author definitely makes it work. I feel that the author really developed the depth of story, especially the setting and characters. I found the military references, terms, and capabilities to be sound. [...]
