Courting Darkness is book ten in the Otherworldseries. I would recommend that you read this series in chronological order. There are parts mentioned in this book that happened in the prior novels. I would have to say this book is one of the darker ones I have read. Though like Ms. Galenorn states, it has to be. I agree with her that if it was not dark and grittier then I might not have liked it as much. Having said this, be warned as there is a rape scene that is violent and the torture Camille endures can be brutal. Though, Hyto is a very evil man/dragon. There was a lot of action, which kept the pace of the story moving fast. Camille is growing stronger. I liked seeing Camille and her husbands together. They really care for her. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. I give Courting Darkness four and half stars as it is that good and worth your time and money!
