Dark Lord Of Kismera by Tamara H. Hartl is, in a word, amazing. I won a copy of this book and when I started reading it I thought...what the ____ is this! And I still couldn't classify it even after reading it. It's a little sci-fi, a bit fantasy with a dash of paranormal romance. Drace and Ki's story is loaded with action, adventure, humor and sizzle. That wasn't enough for author Tamara H. Hartl, she then went on and gave this book characters that are awesome, from the main characters to the least important, they all had wonderfully written personalities. Dark Lord Of Kismera will probably make you chuckle, it may have you shedding a tear, but you won't be bored. If this book was an amusement park ride, it would be a roller coaster. Ms. Hartl has impressed me with her storytelling abilities. I loved this book! I look forward to reading more from Tamara H. Hartl in the future. Dark Lord Of Kismera is book 1 of the Knights Of Kismera Series but it can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
