"Rowe is a paranormal star!" ~J.R. Ward

Six hundred years ago, Elijah Ross was tortured into insanity and thrust into a mental hell that no living creature has ever survived…except him. Now, that ancient evil is back, and it is far more deadly. Elijah is all that stands between it and the destruction of all of humanity, but each step he takes drags him ruthlessly back into the nightmare that once consumed him. Elijah's only chance is Ana Matthews, whose sensual kisses and passionate fire thrust hope and light into his blackened heart and fragmented mind. But Ana’s deadly past could be the final trigger for Elijah's descent into irretrievable madness and the destruction of his soul, humanity and what is left of his heart.

Although the Order of the Blade is a connected series, all books can be read as stand-alones and in any order. Books in the Order of the Blade series: Darkness Awakened (Book One), Darkness Seduced (Book Two), Darkness Surrendered (Book Three), Forever in Darkness (Book Four), Darkness Reborn (Book Five), Darkness Arisen (Book Six), Darkness Unleashed (Book Seven), Inferno of Darkness (Book Eight), Darkness Possessed (Book Nine), Shadows of Darkness (Book Ten, Sept. 2015), Hunt the Darkness (2016).

"Darkness Surrendered, in my opinion is the best novel of the series thus far…Darkness Surrendered drew me so deeply into the story that I felt Ana and Elijah's emotions as if they were my own…they completely engulfed me in their story…Ingenious plot turns and edge of your seat suspense…make Darkness Surrendered one of the best novels I have read in years. I absolutely could not put Darkness Surrendered down. I cried, I laughed, I cursed and I plotted ways to torture Stephanie Rowe if she didn't give me the ending that I wanted. Don't miss out on the adventure that is Darkness Surrendered!" ~Tamara Hoffa, Sizzling Hot Book Reviews

"Book three of the Order of the Blades series is…superbly original and excellent...the passion, struggle and the depth of emotion that Ana and Elijah face is so brutal, yet is also pretty awe inspiring. I was swept away by Stephanie's depth of character detail and emotion...I absolutely loved the roller-coaster that Stephanie, Ana and Elijah took me on." ~Becky Johnson, Bex 'N' Books

My favorite!
June 5th, 2014
I have read each of the order of the blade series and Ana and Elijah story is my favorite. What's not to love about the struggle of two damaged people trying to be whole while learning to trust each other.

Darkness Surrendered
September 14th, 2013
So good. All three books have been read and thoroughly enjoyed at the expense of everything else in my life. They were worth it. Ms. Rowe sure has an amazing gift. Can't wait to start book four.
