Soon an evil wizard who has returned from exile is after the diary. Olivia and Marrok along with some other wizards must work together to keep the diary from falling into the wrong hands.
Touch of Darkness is a wonderful start to a new series about the Doomsday Brethern. Filled with magic, intrigue, and romance the book held my attention and made me want to know more about the characters and what would happen.
I loved that the book involved magic, wizards, and witches. Ms. Black has created a world of magic in the modern day world that is not only extraordinary, it was almost believable.
Olivia and Marrok made an intriguing couple considering his past and what we learn about hers. Watching as they dealt with what life threw at them and discovered love was very touching.
In addition to the fascinating world and plot, Ms. Black has provided readers with many secondary characters worthy of stories of their own. I am definitely looking forward to the other books in the series.
Touch of Darkness was a fabulous read that I highly recommend to those looking for a different kind of paranormal.
