I finally dove into this book and did not regret it! I loved reading every moment of it. I just couldn't get enough.One thing I enjoyed about this book is the tortured lovers. I know this many sound weird, but I liked the struggle between them. It made the ending much more sweeter. Even though the tortured lovers were separated, against all odds they came together. I loved that both of them learn so much more about each other and had to carefully think about the decision they were making.This book is also jammed packed with action as well as secrets left and right. As the reader, I enjoyed learning the secrets as well as traveling back and forth to Nissilum. This is wonderful world created that I adore.The love interest in this book I loved! Seeing to people separated by the laws of Nissilum and came together made my heart swell with joy. Luca and Jane love is forbidden. They had to fight to get where they were and seeing them fight together made them ever more as a team. I really loved Jane's strength. Her strength to do what she had to do when she didn't want to do it, made me smile. That is what love is about. Sacrificing something else for one another.I just learn that there is a third book! I am supper happy and can't wait to read it! This book has captured my heart and had me at hello. Simply fantastic and loving, Dark Heart Rising is an amazing book!
