ARC Review: The Darkest Day by Britt Bury

The Darkest Day is a delectable read.  I was completely engrossed in this book and could not put it down. It’s a debut novel by Britt Bury and it’s the first in The Immortal Heat series. 
Immortals of varied beings inhabit the Earth now.  Humans have been wiped out of existence or so everyone thinks.  Izel Campbell grew up believing she was an immortal Fionn.  She didn’t know why her powers had not kicked in yet. She travels to her ancestral home of Scotland to get answers from her grandfather.  When Izel arrives she gets a whole lot more than answers.  

Kelvin Kerr has been alive for a thousand years.  He seeks vengeance for the death of his father by the Campbell clan.  He is out to eliminate the Campbell heir who has been prophesied to have great powers.  But he never expected the heir to be a female.

Seconds from her own death, the magical enchantment placed on Izel since birth wears off.  What it leaves behind is a stunning, vulnerable human. The last human. And if his scent is right, she is Kelvin's mate.

This was such an engaging story.  It was sexy, dramatic, full of action and romance.  It's got a bit of everything.  You've got immortal highlanders (yum), demons, monsters, Lucifer's daughters!  

When Izel lost the magical enchantment she gained the feel of emotions. For 25 years she's never felt desire, lust, happiness, or anger. It's fun to see her discover these emotions all towards Kelvin.  He protects her and fights for her. Tries to fight his feelings for her. Ha! The man doesn't stand a chance. They have some bumps along the way to a happily ever after. Including a nasty curse Izel's grandfather placed on Kelvin that just may backfire on him.

I'm seriously excited about this series.  Britt Bury did an amazing job creating this refreshingly, new paranormal world. Honestly, I'm impressed that this is her first book.  I can’t wait for the next one. What a great start.
