*REVIEW* Dark Indiscretions by Shakuita Johnson

Reviewer: Donna
Rating: 3.5 Stars

When i first started this book, i was actually quite confused as to what was going on and who everyone was and their connections. Jenny is a Mystic, a Vampyra shape shifting witch who has lived for thousands of years. She didn't like how her family were always looking for there next kill so she killed them all in 1625. They did some awful things to her before she killed them. Then the book takes you to 2012, Jenny has a daughter Krista who is also a Mystic. Then we have Jackson and Taylor who are Dylia's and happen to be Jenny's mates which causes quite a few problems. Krista also ends up meeting her two mates, Taz and Nathan. Taz is a Dylia and Nathan is a Hyjia so this presents itself as another problem as all species are supposed to find there mates within their own species. All this is going on as well as Jenny's uncle James, who she hasn't seen for centuries starts stalking her as he believe she is his and no one elses and he will do anything to get her. This book did grow on me towards the middle of the book and i started to understand the story more. I do wish it was a bit longer and had a bit more to the story but i did enjoy it and i'm looking forward to reading book two. I'm hoping that book two will go into more depth with the story.

What happens when your whole family is scarier than any nightmare and you have no desire to be anything like them? Do you stay and go along with the family plans or do you rebel and have them possibly turn their viciousness on you?

Jennifer Johnston experiences first hand why whispers are spoken in the dark about her species being evil when she was just a century old. What should have been another family dinner spent arguing over why she didn't want to keep the bloodlines "pure" by being married off to her older brother turned into a nightmare and left her with more than tortured memories.

Jackson Dawls and Taylor Durham had been pack mates, best friends, and the other's mate for as long as they could remember. They were a deadly species all their own but even they feared the Mystics and their overly cruel and barbaric ways, but unforeseen circumstances bring them face to face with not one but a few. Will there lives be in danger or is something great and unexpected awaiting them?

They also have to stay under the radar of the human society that is set out to destroy those they believe to be "Tarnished" and a danger to mankind.

When the three meet long ago secrets are brought to the light. Secrets no one but Jennifer knew. Not only do they have to learn to get along with each other because they are fated, someone is also stalking Jennifer and preforming sinister acts without her being any the wiser.

Jennifer must seek guidance from old acquaintances and form alliances with those she never thought she would. She is met with riddles and startling revelations that she never would have imagined possible.

Will they accept their fates and work together or will old fears destroy their lives? Will Jennifer be able to reclaim what was taken from her right from under her nose?
