Savannah Russe really hits her stride with this third book in the Darkwing Chronicles! BENEATH THE SKIN can easily be read as a stand alone although some of Daphne's history may not have the same impact without reading the prior books.

BENEATH THE SKIN can easily be read as a stand alone although some of Daphne's history may not have the same impact without reading the prior books. In particular, the scenes concerning her past love for Lord Byron may seem somewhat out of place without knowing the back history.

Book I, Beyond the Pale, came out back on June 7, 2005 and now I'm hard at work on book 2, Past Redemption, scheduled for release next spring.

Praise for the Darkwing Chronicles. The silk lining was icy and smooth against my skin. Exciting, fast-pace. t has everything: humor, action, mystery, and romance. Savannah Russe us know that there is more than one way to tell a good vamp's story. Victoria Laurie, author of Crime Seen. Something hard in the inside pocket knocked against my ribs.

She’d been decorated three times while serving in Iraq. Shirtless, his tats showed against the dark chocolate of his skin. She’d seen the pierced nipples when he’d been on his back. Two purple hearts for being wounded and a combat medal her entire unit was awarded. She’d served her country and done her part.

While working with Team Darkwing to catch an elusive terrorist before he assassinates a presidential candidate, vampire Daphne Urban becomes drawn to the life she once rejected--New York's secret vampire underworld where any desire is fulfilled. Original.

A repeat of the first two books - if you liked them, you will like this one. The character's issues with her mother are getting a bit tiresome. After the third book, you would think the author could resolve those issues with mother and the old boy friend.

This book was really good. It finished up a few story lines quite well. I would highly recommend the "Darkwing " series to people who like vampire type stories. They are really interesting.

Heartbroken over her troubles with her former lover Darius della Chiesa, Daphne Urban is looking forward to the promised time off from her role as a spy. Unfortunately, an assassin has been hired to kill Joe Daniel, a potential presidential candidate, and Team Darkwing has been called in. The investigation takes a dark turn and all that Daphne believes about herself as a vampire will be challenged. Will Daphne and the rest of her team of vampires be able to locate and stop the assassin? And will Daphne ever get her love life in order?

Savannah Russe really hits her stride with this third book in the Darkwing Chronicles! BENEATH THE SKIN can easily be read as a stand alone although some of Daphne's history may not have the same impact without reading the prior books.

BENEATH THE SKIN is darker than the two previous books, and fits more the urban fantasy than the paranormal romance genre. Daphne struggles with her vampiric nature, and some of the scenes are quite graphic. In addition, Daphne is definitely not monogamous in BENEATH THE SKIN and there are some undertones that amount to a form of drugged rape that may be offensive to some readers. Savannah Russe doesn't make these scenes superfluous as they are inherent to the core of Daphne's struggle, but readers should be aware that these issues are a part of BENEATH THE SKIN.

Daphne is starting to grow up. No longer the fashionista only concerned with herself, she is starting to form a true bond with her fellow Darkwing teammates. I like the hints we are given about the history of vampires and am hoping that Savannah Russe continues the series more along the urban fantasy lines. BENEATH THE SKIN is definitely my favorite in the series and ensures that I will keep reading to see what else Savannah Russe has in store for us!

Daphne, our intrepid hero from Beyond the Pale and Past Redemption, is recently single and back on the job. This time, Team Darkwing must stop the assassination of a presidential candidate. J suspects that there is a high profile assassin in town to handle the job, an assassin that signs their work as Gage. This assassin is good, but who are they. Daphne and Benny go undercover to find out. At the same time, Cormac finds out why he's been assigned to Opus Dei and a new, good looking and mysterious new team member named Tallmadge is added to the team. Tallmadge brings out the dark side in Daphne, and she doesn't like it because she feels that she is now more than what lives beneath the skin(a big humanoid bat that flies and drinks blood but also likes to play with its food).

The story is pretty good and entertaining. However, the character names are still really, really bad to the point of detracting from the story. One note: if you like your heroines to be monogamous, you should avoid this book. Daphne runs a bit amuck in the lust/love department in this book (more power to her).

I was so dissapointed! The first installments in this series were very good and I was hoping for another tasty serving. Our strong heroine Daphne spent most of the book in a huge grumpy hissy fit however. And when she wasn't doing that she was getting it on with just about every male in the book except Cormac who's gay.

The main mission in the book was glossed over to the point that it was carried out in the Epilogue! They figured out who the baddy was but let them get away and they are still on the lamb- and frankly they weren't that enigmatic a figure. The newest member of the team was useless. The only new characters that I found interesting were Daniels who the assasination attempt is on and Fud, an ex mafia hit man with a speach impediment.

Daphne didn't even have a nice wardrobe in this book, which was a fun part of her other tales.

I'm sure I'll still pick up the next installment whenever it comes out. But for right now I'm bitterly disappointed.

Vampiress Daphne Urban has tasted love twice in her centuries old lifetime. The first time she suffered an overbite and killed Byron; the second time is more recent as she is attracted to vampire Darius della Chiesa, but that is over too though he still lives. To get over the end of her relationship with Darius, Daphne figures her "day" job as a government agent will help her move on as she must save America as part of team Darkwing as the Feds know she and her compatriots are a blood thirsty group.

The team's current assignment is to prevent super assassin Gage from killing popular presidential candidate Congressman Joe Daniel, a decorated war hero opposing the war. Making the assignment difficult is a new member of the team Tallmadge who prefers the traditional vampire likings to that of the tastes of the mortal realm unlike the fashion plate Daphne. Also causing her to lose concentration are Darius and a human hunk. However, as Daphne digs into the whereabouts of the professional killer, she gauges that he has to be inhuman to accomplish the feats he has done.

The third Daphne urban fantasy (see The Darkwing Chronicles: PAST REDEMPTION and BEYOND THE PALE) is a wonderful espionage thriller that makes vampires seem genuine in a modern text (think social security and birth certificates). The story line is action-packed as Daphne relates her escapades in the first person with the three males in her life disengaging her from her assignment. Fans will appreciate this cat and mouse caper with a sharp bite as Daphne and her teammates struggle to prevent a seemingly invincible opponent from another kill.
