In a world on the brink of chaos, passion and vengeance collide …

After six months in hell, Julian Castille has returned to the world a changed man. No longer the calm, powerful CEO, but a shifter fully embraced by the blood of his clan. Julian has one goal: find the key to the portal that stands between the human realm and unprecedented darkness—and win back the pieces of his soul. The last thing he needs is a distraction like the beautiful, enigmatic Jaden DaCosta.

Three years ago, a forbidden night of passion left Jaden forever altered: mated to Julian Castille–bound to a man who despises her. But the temptation to trust this darker, more savage—and more captivating—Julian is overwhelming. And as they fight for their immortal souls, their insatiable desire for each other may prove their fatal undoing…

Juliana Stone knows how to get your emotions stirring, and she brings out all the stops in His Darkest Salvation. I love reading an exciting hot ride between two enemies, so this one really hit the spot for me. This book is nothing but pure action packed and the ending will leave you panting for more.

Jaden is your typical strong female lead, but she is also a romance flip flop one minute she hates and Julian then the next she is in his pants. The thing is the author doesn’t drag this out through the whole book because these two has sense about them they talk it out. Jaden is more of a tortured heroine, but of course, she would be having an evil father, so this is where you’ll find your emotions really stir. I really felt sorry for Jaden being caught in the middle of her father and Julian who doesn’t want her.

Julian is a tormented soul now that he’s been stuck in hell, so be prepared for a fight from him when it comes to mixing with the enemy. At times I didn’t like how he treated Jaden, but with his soul slowly going away you can’t expect anything but a fight with him.

I do wish there would have been a different ending between Julian and Jaden. It a HEA, but I wanted more. After you read the epilogue you’ll be wanting the next book NOW!

This is another hit by Juliana Stone, so if you’re a regular reader of this series don’t miss this story. If you haven’t read this series please start from the beginning or you’ll miss out on way too much or you’ll find it hard to keep up.


  1. I reviewed this book on my blog too and I loved it. I'm glad you enjoyed it so much too! I agree, I would have liked to have had a little more at the end that was just about these two,The ending had so much going on, it was a head shaker, but it sure made me want to go right out and buy the next book!
