Buddy Review of Dark Harmony by Laura Thalassa

There are worse things than death. Things that lurk in the shadows and slip into your dreams. Things that have no business existing. Things that once slept … but have now awoken.

For Callypso Lillis, the fae magic that now runs through her veins is equal parts curse and good fortune. For the very thing that bonds her to Desmond Flynn, the King of the Night, also makes her vulnerable to the Thief of Souls, a man who wants to break the world … and Callie along with it. 

But it’s not just the Thief whose shadow looms over the Otherworld. Des’s father is back from the dead, and he wants revenge on the son who sent him to the grave in the first place. 

Des and Callie must figure out how to stop both men, and time is running out. Because there are forces at play working to tear the lovers apart once and for all … and unfortunately for them, death is no longer the worst thing to fear.

M's Review
5 Stars

There are 5 star reviews that are amazing and then there are 5 star reviews where you wish you could give way more stars. This is one of those reviews. Quite frankly I don't know where to start. I fell in love with Des & Callie last May and have been waiting for this book ever since. I have highlighted so many passages in this book that I had to color code them for the sake of my review. 
We start off where we left off, with Callie now being officially bonded to Des. While that's amazing and all we now know that The Thief of Souls can now get to her. While reading this book I had so many ideas as to who the Thief of Souls could be and not one of them was correct which obviously made me happy! 
I loved watching Des and Callie's relationship develop. They had their usual banter and jokes but I felt like their love had progressed to a much deeper level. 
"You don't know who you are?" The Bargainer's voice drops low. "You're Callypso Lillis, plain and simple. You were her yesterday, you'll be her tomorrow. It's up to you to decide what being you actually means. No one else can do that for you. Not the man who gave you those wings, not the man who's hunting you. Not your stepfather. Not even me. But whatever you choose to be, cherub, make it count." 
Um yeah, can you say swooning because for the majority of the book that's what I did. I can't tell you how bittersweet this book was for me. It's my favorite paranormal romance series ever so as much as I was happy to read this, I was sad to see it end. I don't think I've ever smiled so much while reading a book, that's how happy it made me! 
He's gazing up at me like I'm something akin to his religion, something he might pray to, and right now I feel like a dark queen, my throne made of this man's flesh.
Dark Harmony answered all unanswered questions and to be honest this might be the best book in the entire series. I know Laura Thalassa took her time with this because she wanted them to have the ending they deserved and they truly did. This book was EPIC!
All this time I'd hidden from my true nature. I'll hide from it no more.

J's Review
5 Stars

“I was dying, and he was unwilling to let me go.”

I don’t even know how to start this review, or what to say really. The only thing that comes to mind is to just say how freaking amazing this was, and how Laura can really do no wrong. Dark Harmony was EVERYTHING. It was AMAZING. Getting more of Des and Callie was just so awesome. This is book 3 in the series, and you have to read the books in order. I honestly can’t go much into detail because I don’t want to spoil the greatness that is the Bargainer Series. I will say, I’m not a huge PNR fan, and this book even though it is PNR (fae) it is amazing. I was completely shocked (and very much pleased) at how much sex was in this story. There wasn’t like an over abundance of it, but a good amount, and it just made the story that much better. 

““Sweet siren,” he says between kisses, “you better sharpen those claws. Tonight I don’t plan on being nice.”

Des and Callie are 100% one of my favorite fiction couples. I love them together, and I each of their characters separately. They’re both amazing, and when they come together -no pun intended- it’s that much more  spectacular. Dark Harmony was the perfect conclusion to their story, and one I will never forget. Props to you Laura, you’re freaking amazing. Thank you for writing one of the best couples in fiction!!!! I’m still always going to hold out hope that it’s not the end, and I hope we’ll see more of them! 

Anyways, if you’re a heavy PNR fan, or someone who just dabbles in it, trust me, this series is FIRE. It’s amazing, and one you should definitely read! 

It goes without saying, Laura, you have a forever fan in me!!
