This novel started off really well, strong characters, original plot from another side of the Darklands story. Sadly as it progressed it started to lose momentum and the characters started to lose depth as did the storyline. The ending felt rushed and shallow and was an unpleasant suprise from an author I've come to have high expectations about.

If you enjoy Darklands, the books worth reading to get more perspective on the story but it doesnt compare to the previous books.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 16 October 2011
Since her father's murder Rain has been on the run. Rescued by Fallon (a werewolf like Haunt) half human Rain has major trust issues when it comes to male Haunts; understandable considering her father was killed by one.

Against her wishes, Rain is transported to the Dark Lands, but takes one treasure with her, an invention someone is willing to kill for to gain. Fallon is having difficulty keeping up with Rain; her tendencies to run from threats putting her in some dangerous situations, plus her inability to trust any Haunt has him worried about her commitment to him and her new world.

This is a great read which stands alone quite well (a good job as I've not read any "Dark Land" novels for years). The characters are dynamic, plus the relationship between Rain and Fallon is red hot. Rain's interactions with Haunt children are endearing and her talents with electronics interesting, yet she does something at the end of this book that I found totally at odds with her character, an action that has those she has become close to applauding and taking pride in her ingenuity. Great story but (for me) the ending didn't work and diminished Rain's character. 3.5 stars

I enjoyed one of the Darkland books which encouraged me to download more, but I have been very disapointed with the writing and the stories. This book seems rushed, in fact it reads like a lot of notes for a book that have been put together into bookform. The Darklands basic storyline is a good one - different and original. A real shame. Also the start of the book was set in England and discribed a person as a scarred 'blighter', it is as if the author's only knowledge of Britain was from reading or seeing one of the stories of Bertie Wooster by
P.G.Wodehouse.

Ok, so I'm a big Darklands fan and therefore biased!! I liked this book - the revisited fictional world and species, the characters, the science, the children, the romance!
However, I felt that the connection between the two main characters was not as emotional as in previous instalments. But maybe it was more realistic and suited the characters better! The plot was also too short and predictable, except for the ingenious science which was blinding!! There were so many possibilities of gripping twists that were missed, it was frustrating! It was also too short - finished it in a couple of hours!! And there seemed to be a large part missing before the final chapter?!!
I will persevere with the rest of the series, being a fan and all!! And look forward to the chance of bumping into Darklands' well loved characters again, especially the possibility of watching the children grow up!!

The dark lands series of books are brilliant! They are well thought out and the characters are believeable and likeable. This book is about Fallon who has been touched on in previous books. All the lead men and SEXY and STRONG and HIGHLY HORNY! BUT its not a smutty book, yes there are sex scenes BUT they are not too much for one who blushes easily like me! All the books that ive read so far *the charmer**scent of danger**the golden bell* are the same people in nearly the same situations, But Autumn Dawn makes it still interesting. The only thing i would say about this one *GOLDEN BELL* is the ending was a little bit of a let down it seemed rushed somehow. BUT saying that its still a good story. now off to the next one :)

The book started off really well, and I was thinking that this is going to be the best book yet in this series, and then it abruptly ends, it's like a big bit at the end has been sliced off. Terrible.

Darklands is a planet accessible through a gate in Alaska. A planet where The Haunt live ~ shapeshifters who switch between human and wolverine form. Rain has been on the run for a year, since the brutal murder of her Father ~ by members of The Haunt. She has humans and members of The Haunt wanting to kill her. She wants to find her Father's killer, avenge his death and start a new, quiet & boring life. She doesn't count on falling in love or moving to a different world! This is the second Darklands book that I've read and I enjoyed this book too. Real life and fantasy are woven together in stories fall of adventure and sensuality.

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed The Charmer and Scent of Danger, I expected great things from this book. While the plot was good it lacked the depth of the other books and seemed like it had been published before it had been finished. Still a reasonable book but nothing like the quality of the other books in the Darklands series.

Another really riveting addition to the Darkland series. You just cant ignore the imagination this author writes with, it really is incredible. This is creative and addictive and has a writing style that perfectly partners it. A great afternoon reading.
