Dark Waltz--A sizzling legend of loss, lust and love. 

It’s the year 2030 and the human population has been annihilated by a virulent form of small pox. Liasare Davidson is desperately searching for her brother, who has been missing for three months. It’s been eighteen years since she was evacuated from Earth and she is horrified to see it’s become a cesspool of unimaginable things.

In her quest to find her brother, she meets Jurek, a powerful and enigmatic being that frightens her, yet she is unable to resist. When things begin to unfold between them, they both discover a paralyzing truth that puts Liasare at grave risk. She must make a choice to join Jurek and find her brother or fulfill a role she believes she is ill equipped to undertake.


I received Dark Waltz in return for an honest review as part of the blog tour hosted by CBB Book Promotions. Liasare Davidson is on a mission to find her missing brother without her sister knowing what she intended she heads off for earth. In the last 15 years the earth has changed the human population has dropped dramatically, and is now treated like slaves or disappears forever.  Liasare is in way over her head when it comes to finding her brother because she needs to avoid the Xanthians a race of evil aliens who now rule over the earth.  

However when things go bad Liasare is rescued not once but twice by Jurek a handsome strange she can’t help finding herself attracted to. Both of them are keeping secrets about the true identities from each other. Jurek is equally drawn to the innocent girl who’s searching for her brother and wants to help her but doesn’t want to risk his reason for being on earth either. When the chance comes up for them to attend a ball where they are hoping will reveal what has happened to her brother. When Liasare comes across Tommy he doesn’t seem to notice her and even shoots her in the chest. Thankfully Jurek is able to save her life by healing her wound, but they learn that the bullet has a tracker and are forced to flee.

Dark Waltz has a beautiful cover that just teases the reader. I really enjoyed the story-line it flows along smoothly creating an enchanting mix of mystery and romance. I think the use of the dystopia and sci fi genre are used well together they create a world of mystery. The concept for Dark Waltz is an exciting adventure that pulls you in right from the start and doesn’t let go till the end. I love the characters Liasare is innocent but strong and determine to risk her life to find the brother who was there when she needed him the most. She’s a great heroine because she’s not perfect which makes her more connectible. What more can I say about Jurek tall dark and handsome who is oh so yummy but more than just a body, he’s strong and very supportive of Liasare which is what she needs in a man. I will say this book does have a lot of language and the sexual nature is mixed throughout the book (Yup my hubby makes fun of me for being a little prude because I blush when I read about sex) I would suggest over 18 but if you alright with the sex and language I would highly suggest you take a look at Dark Waltz. This is my first book by A.M Hargrove but I’m sure it won’t be my last. I look forward to reading the next book in the series to see what happens next.
