Shrouded in Blackness Blog Tour - Review & Giveaway

Shrouded in Blackness
(The Blackness Series, #3)
 by Norma Jeanne Karlsson

Only loyalty can truly win his heart…

Gangs, organized crime and underground bare-knuckle fighting make up the world that Kieran Delaney thrives within. His reputation is built on the talent of his fists, as much as his ability to get information about any and everything. Never one to be caught by surprise or bested, Kieran knows what you’re going to do before you do it…until Darcy Quinlan enters his life. She introduces herself with a knife to his throat and a promise of unbridled pain. Darcy’s life has been destroyed by betrayal and false promises of safety. Living on the streets for the last eight years, she’s has been a ghost. Never in one place long enough to be seen because you can’t catch what isn’t there. Now Kieran sees her and can’t erase her image from his mind.

Kieran and Darcy must now battle to keep her alive and by his side. As her past enters her life from every angle, Kieran makes certain her safety is no longer a concern, annihilating her demons at every corner. He’ll fight, he’ll maim, he’ll torture and he’ll murder to keep Darcy protected. If Kieran can win, her life will no longer be shrouded in blackness…loyalty will lift the veil.


Blackness Takes Over is Norma Jeanne’s debut novel. What began as an homage to the home town of a homesick Midwestern girl, unfolded a story of love, danger, humor, and trust. She’s currently working on her untitled sophomore effort. We can’t wait to see what thrilling saga she leads us through next!

Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Norma Jeanne recently found herself relocating to the United Kingdom. Now living in Belfast, she took hold of the opportunity to kick the 9-5 job for a chance to become an author. The best part: working from her home office, she gets to spend more time with her cast of crazy characters (written and real).

In her free time Norma Jeanne is a voracious reader and consumes books as readily as meals. She is a people watcher by nature and uses her experiences in life, observed or otherwise, to build the worlds and characters that thrive in her books. A believer in the strength of the human spirit,Norma Jeanne writes the stories of people that persevere when all appears to be lost.

“Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” –Dylan Thomas

My Review:

Thank you to Book Nerd Tours and Norma Jeanne Karlsson, for giving me the chance to review this book. I wasn't sure at first cause it was book 3 of a series, and having not read the other two books I was worried I wouldn't be able to keep up and get lost. Once I got started I had no problems, it's a story that can be read without reading the rest...phew! lol.
I was drawn in right off the bat, absolutely fell hard for Quinn, she's an amazing character and so easy to connect with. She's someone who's been through hell and still has fight left in her, and boy does she fight!! From the first chapter we see what she's made of and that she's not going to take crap from anyone. Even with a tough backbone she's still got a loving, caring heart and that's another thing that strung me to her. Being on the run for 8yrs can take it's toll on anyone.
Quinn meets Kieran in the most interesting way possible lol (gonna have to read to find out). Kieran's a fighter, he's a huge hardass and has an anger issue, he does have a sweet loving side. He's killed and doesn't feel an ounce of remorse, though these men deserved what they got. Right from the very first meeting, Kieran is drawn to Quinn and wants nothing but to keep her safe, he becomes very protective of her and feelings begin to grow.
Quinn and Kieran weren't the only characters who stole my heart in this book, they pretty much all did. Norma Jeann, has written an amazing story, full of hardship, violence, murder, love and, oh yeah...steamy sex *wink wink* Definitely a story that shows things aren't always served to you on a silver platter, life's hard but good things do happen and when they do you need to grab hold and never let go! :-)
Loved this book, go grab yourself a copy and get started, you won't regret it!!
