Title: Into the Darkness
Author: K.F. Breene
Genre: New Adult Fantasy/Paranormal Romance
Publication: January 23, 2014

I’d always been different. I saw objects in the night where others saw emptiness. Large, human shaped shadows, fierce yet beautiful, melting into the darkness. I collected secrets like other women collected bells; afraid to fully trust lest my oddities be exposed.

Until I saw him. He’d been gliding down the street, unshakable confidence in every step. It wasn’t just that he was breathtakingly handsome with perfect features. Something about him drew me. Sucked my focus to him and then tugged at my body. As his eyes met mine, I was entrapped.

No one had noticed him. He’d been right there, just beyond the light, but only I had perceived.

I had to know if he was real. Or maybe I really was crazy. And even when my secret box was blasted wide open, dangers hurled at me like throwing knives, I couldn’t stop until I unraveled his true identity.

I just had to know.

“She was fated to live.”
“Then why must you save her?”
“Often Fate is struck down by dumb luck.”

Into the Darkness is currently FREE on Amazon, along with these other books by K.F. Breene!


Sasha is an orphan, she's always saw shapes in the shadows. After  her freaking out once to her foster parent's and them getting her a psychological exam, she doesn't let anyone know she still sees men in the shadows. She'd like to stay out of that padded room if she can help it. After finally coming face to face with these shadow shapes, she still wonders if maybe she really is crazy. Stefan or “Boss” as he is generally called, doesn't understand what is so special about this human girl. She's a pain in his backside, but there is just something about her.

As we are all aware by now, I love K.F. Breene. Into The Darkness is different than what I'm used to reading from her. I was not disappointed at all. I think I laughed three quarters of the way through this book, yes, it was THAT hilarious. I know I'm probably supposed to give more thought to the magic element, and the paranormal creatures in the book, but honestly, I just had a good time reading it. Maybe it's just too soon in the series for me to start thinking about all of that.

Sasha is something else. She's the strong female lead that I love in a book. She really does think she's losing her mind most of the time. She sees men in shadows, and instead of running away like she's supposed to, she is drawn in. I love her quirky attitude, she takes unexpected and unrealistic things quite well. Maybe it's because she's just happy to know she isn't really crazy, although, the jury is still out on that. Jared is Sasha's boyfriend, her first everything, and she really wishes she could trust him completely. That decision is eventually taken out of her hands, and let me just tell you, poor Jared goes through some crap.

Stefan, I'm not entirely sure what to call Stefan actually. His species is human-ish, physically superior, and kind of vampire-ish....but they aren't vampires, their species just inspired the vampire legends. It makes more sense when you read the book. Anyway, these guys are a sexual race. Stefan is the man in his territory, which is why he's Boss. Sasha, somehow, keeps annoyingly popping up everywhere he is. He would mostly like to get rid of that pain in the butt, mostly.

There are some sexual situations in this book that may bother some readers. I personally wasn't bothered because the reaction from the characters had me laughing continually, plus they weren't all that bad in my opinion. I loved this book. I just didn't care for how it ended. Cliffy Cliffhanger style, but it is a series so..... Anyway, I'd recommend this book to people who enjoy paranormal reads. Don't be confused though, it isn't a fluffy story, and some may have serious issues with Stefan's species' sexual nonchalance.

A wine country native, K.F. Breene moved to San Francisco for college just shy of a decade ago to pursue a lifelong interest in film. As she settled into the vibrant city, it quickly became apparent that, while she thought making and editing films was great fun, she lacked cinematic genius. For that reason, her career path quickly changed direction. Her next goal was a strange childhood interest, conjured at the dining room table while filling out a form. For some reason, her young self wanted to be an accountant. Thinking on it now, she often wonders how she had any friends. Regardless, it was the direction she finally took.

While she could wrangle numbers with the best of 'em, and even though she wore the crown as the most outspoken, belligerent accountant in the world, her mind got as stuffy as her daily routine. It was here that she dusted off her creative hat and began writing. Now she makes movies in her head, not worried about lighting, shutter speed or editing equipment. Turns out, a computer is much easier to manage than a crowd of actors. She should know, she was an actor at one time.
