I love Suzanne Brockmann's books usually. Alpha male hero with strong female heroine who can stand her ground against him. My negative was the m/m relationship I wish she didn't always make one of her male love interest characters so wet. I have gay friends and I don't see the almost parent (Steven / Jules) child (Elliot / Robin) relationship that her m/m romances seem to have. I would like to see strong male with strong male because if the m/f relationship was like that I would want to slap the woman tell her not to be so pathetic and to grow up. So why can't the m/m relationship be on an equal footing too?.
I didn't enjoy it as much as her others most of which I would give 5 stars. It's not as good as a 4 but better than a 3.

I am a huge fan of Suzanne Brockmann and I normally absolutely love her books, but I must say I was a little disappointed with Born to Darkness.

The whole concept of the book is VERY similar to Christine Feehan's "Ghostwalker" books,(if you haven't read any of these - check them out you won't be disappointed) but in my opinion in this particular genre Christine Feehan wins hands down.

I seriously almost loved this. Brockman can write. I liked the characters and the plot is an interesting one. But the fact that kept me from loving it and, in fact, coming to really resent large chunks of it is unfortunately so common in modern fiction it's hardly worth commenting on...except that we should all be commenting on it all the time.

The whole book hinges on cliched female terror. Almost every single female in this book, adult and child, is either raped or threatened with rape at some point in this book. This is used as character development shorthand. Want a villain to seem especially vile? Make him a serial rapist, better yet a serial child rapist. Want a woman to be especially pitiable? Make her relive the memory of her rape over and over. What her to be notably strong? Make her over come her rape. Want a girl to be especially terrorized? Make her witness another girl get raped or threaten her with rape. Want your heroes to be especially good guys? Have them overlook the besmirchment of the women they love and, unlike everyone else, not judge them for getting raped. Better yet, have them also save them from the after-effects of their rapes. Either teaching them how to not remain stuck on the memory or convince them it wasn't their fault. All of these are in this book. Every single one of them and more. It's common, trope-based characterization shorthand and it's LAZY writing! I expected so much more from this book.

I started to read Suzanne Brockmann's books because we share the same last name. She's such a great writer that I've now read all of her books.

The only thing I think this book lacked was the outrageously funny side of her writing. There were hints of it throughout the book, but not the can't-stop-laughing and tears-rolling-down-your-face side of her SEAL Team 16 books. Having said that, I still can't wait to read her next book.

A huge "Thank You" to her for all the hours of entertainment she's provided.

After having read almost all her books, here is a new one I can almost not put down.
And what a delight also with her style. Not to say, she makes us love many figuring in this:
Can hardly wait to read their stories too. A wonderful new series awaiting!
