Review: From the Darkness (Dragons’ House #1)


From the Darkness (Dragons' House #1)


Daniel Fenelli is a man haunted by nightmares of a past he doesn’t remember. Distrustful impulsive cold. Daniel is a man of contrasts. He is also vulnerable, loving and warm.

When his adoptive father, the respectable Detroit businessman and Mafia don, Giuseppe Fenelli, informs him about his plans to ally with the most powerful crime- fighting organization, the Dragons’ House. Daniel has an odd feeling about the whole thing.

Tarquin Ballard is a computer wizard working for the special team as the leader of the Dragons’ House’s cyber squad. A lonely, shy boy, he doesn’t see himself worthy of love. The horrible experiences of his past left wounds running deep in Tarquin’s soul and a heavy burden on his fragile shoulders

When the alliance between the organizations they belong to bring Daniel and Tarquin together, they are instantly attracted to each other. But as the intensity of their feelings grows, the secrets of their past threaten to destroy the romance budding between the two men and dark forces conspire against them.

Will Daniel and Tarquin end up crushed under the weight of all the secrets surrounding them? Or will they find in each other the power they need to rise from the darkness?




I liked a lot of parts of the book but I did had some issues with it too. It had its ups and downs but I enjoyed reading it.

There were a lot of interesting parts in the plot that I really enjoy. I can’t share too much because it is easy to give too much spoilers away. Most of it, was Tarquin’s scene what I liked the most. There were also some secondary characters that I liked a lot. I would love to know more of their stories in the future.

It was interesting enough to keep my attention until the end. But I had a lot of trouble with the plot because there were times when there was too much going on. It became confusing. I lost track of who was who, because there were too many new characters. There were some typos that bother me a little but nothing too distracting to keep me from reading it. I felt underwhelmed by the solution to some of the problems presented to the main characters. It seem too easy way out.

Overall, it was an entertaining book. I liked most of the characters and I most likely will be reading the next instalment.
