In the world of crime fighting, Raven has learned that formal affairs are a necessary evil. So when Keystone receives an invitation to a winter ball, she tries to make the best of it. The most powerful elites in Cognito are attending—a perfect opportunity to network and have a few drinks. But when a guest hijacks the party in a violent display of dark power, chaos ensues.

It's a race against time as Raven searches for a way to thwart his diabolical plan. Will Keystone find the fortitude to prevent the downfall of civilization? Or will they bow to a new king to save their souls?

magical ROMANCE SUSPENSE urban

Quicksilver delivered from beginning to end and pulls us ever closer to the conclusion of the Crossbreed series. Fresh storylines, and unique characters combined with swoons and laughter make Darks’ audiobooks memorable.

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Dannika Dark and the world she has set all of her series in. Quicksilver is the eleventh novel in the Crossbreed series. If you haven’t yet visited Cognito and joined the members of Keystone, a covert operation that handles outlaws, you need to drop everything and begin! Seriously, you’ll love Raven Black, a half-vampire/half-mage kick-ass female and her partner sexy and lethal vampire, Christian Poe. The rest of the motley Keystone crew will steal your hearts along the way. The villains, danger and missions they face will keep you listening into the wee hours.

The Winter Ball is being hosted and held by Lenore. No one likes Lenore, especially Christian and Raven, but for their leader, Viktor, they’ll dress up and attend. In attendance are the powerful elite and the event is meant for networking. It was fun seeing the Keystone crew decked out in their version of formal wear, from Raven’s red dress to another’s elf slippers. The party takes a serious turn when a guest hijacks the party and demands fealty. They have ten days to accept the demands. Can Raven and the crew stop this power hungry mage or will the world fall?

The next ten days are action-packed, as the gang deals with what the mage has done. They find themselves in hiding as they regroup and make a plan. Gads, I hate Lenore, and Dark gives us more reasons to loath the greedy bitch. Our new villain desires power, loyalty and an end to the higher council.

While the storyline was intense, we got sweet and sexy moments in the romance department and plenty of chuckles as the group deal with this mess. Dark has endeared these characters to me and in each book we learn more. This story shared Viktor’s backstory, and I just wanted to hug our loyal Russian.

Raven continues to astound with her powers. Keystone, her friends and Christian, have really allowed her to grow. The story gave us a unique twist and intense tale, but Dark wrapped it in some of the most romantic moments between Raven and Christian. I couldn’t stop listening and despite wanting to savior the story, I ended up devouring it in two days.

Nicole Poole narrates all of Dark’s audiobooks and has become the voice of these characters. Each voice is so unique that I know who is speaking immediately. I love that. Both are male and female voices are delightful from accents to tones.

The Crossbreed series is perfect for fans of urban fantasy and paranormal romances who love working with an elite team and catching some baddies.
