Tour Review and Giveaway: Gravity (The Mageri #4) By Dannika Dark

Gravity (The Mageri #4)
Author: Dannika Dark
Adult Paranormal Romance
5 out of 5 Stars


When a choice is made, it will forever alter the course of our destiny. It cannot be undone, for fate is a river changing direction and carving away the bed of our hearts like everlasting fractures.

A difficult past has left Silver broken, but she is learning to trust again through Logan Cross, a Chitah who has convinced her that a dangerous man can change. Their conviction for each other will be put to the ultimate test when an old nemesis reappears and flips her world upside down. Will Logan be able to tame the animal within, or will he succumb to his impulsive nature?

The ongoing investigation into Breed experiments unveils a shocking secret about Silver’s past. Standing at a fork in the road, Silver is forced to make a decision. Each comes with consequence, and there is no turning back.

My Review:

  Oh so many things in this book, so many things. I laughed, cried, sighed, yelled and screamed but above all things I loved it. In this 4th book of The Mageri Series, Dannika takes us on what I believe is one of Silver's most challenging situations yet. This by far is the most emotional of them all. Dannika took a simple story about a girl who was changed into an immortal being and turned this into something much bigger. Not only is this book about Silver, but she has pulled almost all of her characters in this story. In previous books, the POV was Silver alone, but this one switches to Justus, Adam, and Logan. The different POVs were frustrating at first because I wanted more Silver and Logan but it helped you understand more of the situations and the emotions other characters were going through at the same time. Ms. Dark was intent on pulling our hear strings with this one, man oh man did I feel like she just took her hand and ripped my heart out. The dynamics have changed along with new friends and new enemies, I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Sorry I just had to add this, my favorite line!

Christian turned around and penetrated Slater with his obsidian eyes. "Better talk or I'll introduce you to my two best friends," he said harshly, holding up his fists. "Meet thunder and lightning. If you don't start talking, it's going to storm all over your face."

Author’s Bio:
Down in Texas, there's a woman who drinks copious amounts of vitamin water placed precariously close to her laptop. Yeah, I know. I've got a drinking problem. Hi, I'm Danni.

When I'm not writing (which is all the time), I'm listening to obscure music, watching movies, reading, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the internet. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I'm not sure which).

Some people count sheep when they have insomnia. Since I was little, I used to make up stories in my head in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I'd get so wrapped up in my "head stories" that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down more and more, creating short stories which evolved into poetry.

Lots and lots of poetry. It's almost embarrassing that I have an entire box loaded with spiral notebooks filled with furious, heartfelt, and blushing words. Apparently, I had a lot to say.

Another one of my hobbies is digital art. I designed all my book covers. 

I am finally doing what I have always wanted to: giving my characters a pulse through publishing. I write adult urban fantasy romance, but I don't like labels. I let the story tell itself, and color outside the lines. I am not a YA author, but I think it’s pretty great that there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal. These are the future readers!

The work that goes behind self publishing is hard work, I won't lie. On top of my regular day job: I write, edit, format, create cover art, and market.

But it's what I love to do, and someday, I'm going to be doing this full time.
