Pre-Release Gush:Out of all the books in this series, The Dark Rising is far my favorite because it raises my lust crush on Vance Mangum to EPIC proportions. I was devastated by the ending in book 3 and I couldn't wait to see where the author would take Vance and Portia next? Would they get to enjoy even a few moments of peace before all hell broke out again? This couple sizzles and I love the way their relationship had developed but watch out guys because this book will BLOW YOUR MIND with the [...]

*Note – if you haven't read the previous books in this series, you may not want to read this reviewWow, what a trip this book was! This was totally unexpected for me. For some reason, I was thinking that this was the last book in the series – therefore, I thought everything would be nicely wrapped up with a bow on top! Toward the last 10 pages, I was starting to get worried. When I got to the last page, I couldn't decide if I should go into full panic mode or if I should relax because surely [...]

This was heartbreaking. It was hard to see how desperate Portia was to get Vance back but as his old self. In the end it was good to see that Vance still loves Portia with all his being. Don't get me wrong I ship Portia and Vance so hard but I kinda love Hex I hate how Vance has been in this book however the ending might have quite a lot to do with that. Well I hope. There's one book to go and I hope somehow everything can get back to the way it was. Portia and Hex's relationship is brilliant an [...]

RECEIVED FROM: The Author for Review***NOTE MY REVIEWS OFTEN CONTAIN SPOILERS***After dealing with the horrifying loss of her husband in the previous novel Portia Mangum is shocked to find that her husband Vance has returned from the dead. Apparently the Awakening that she received in the last novel also worked on restoring her husband. Unfortunately though he doesn’t remember anything about his life before the moment he awoke in a coffin, buried alive. Though he doesn’t remember his wife he [...]

This is the fourth book in a five book seriesd it is the darkest book in the series so far. The series starts out as a light and fun take on a young girl learning she is a witch at age 16 and she and her family's trials and fun times as she goes through the first part of her 16th year. The books get progressively darker as the heroine (Portia) and the other major characters in the series have to abandon their peaceful existence to fight the forces of evil, sometimes not so effectively. I am stil [...]

I'm having a hard time breathing at the moment. As ridiculous as it sounds, this one has given me an anxiety attack. I'm trembling, sweaty, and nauseous and I might need to go to the ER. Ok, maybe not the ER, but I am not feeling good. This one was definitely better than book 3. I'm not as upset about the characters and their actions. The dialogue thing still bugged me but not nearly as much as before. So many things happened that I didn't think possible and I love that this book consistently su [...]

Wow! This book is such a page turner. There are so many twists and so much action. Things keep on building up and when you think they are built up, no, there is another twist. This book is an emotional roller coaster ride. Portia's husband has recently lost his memories. Things cannot get any worse, right? Well, for poor Portia, Vance acts like his demonic self at times and also acts like his original self. He is like a walking contradiction. Portia really has a lot to deal with. She is dealing [...]

***If you have'nt read the book then this review may spoil it.***The Dark Rising is the 4th book in the series "of Witches and Warlocks" by Lacey Weatherford, and yet again its a great read that kept me interested. As with the other 3 books lots of twist and turns and events that you don't expect. This book picks up where book 3 ended but with a twist straight away for young Portia. The tale of the young lovers was ended quickly in book 3 by the death of Vance when he was trying to save both his [...]

The Dark Rising is the fourth installment in the Of Witches and Warlocks series by lacey Weatherford. This book oozes drama, action and some bad ass magic.Portia has come a long way in her short time that she has discovered that she is a witch. She finds the love of her life, he is partially demon due to an incomplete transformation, got married to said love of her life and has been the recipient of a serious mojo power called the ‘The Awakening’. But none of that matters when your husband, [...]

This time I'm hiding the review in case anyone doesn't want spoilers cause while I endeavoured not to give anything away in my previous reviews I'm not honestly sure I can do that in this one! The author has me riveted with this story and at first I was so happy to have Vance back after the heartache of his funeral at the start and honestly? I thought that as he'd basically died and had come back because of the awakening that the demon aspect of him would be gone and he'd be free. To say my hear [...]

Dark and deadly dangerous. This fourth installment in the fantastic Of Witches and Warlocks series is filled with love and passion and loyalty. Twists and turns abound, leading to a completely unexpected conclusion. I just couldn't put it down! I have been one of Lacey's biggest fans from the moment I read the very first book, The Trouble With Spells. Portia and Vance share a swoon-worthy love that twists and turns but always remains constant. When the end of Blood of the White Witch left me sho [...]

WOW! I wasn't sure I would like the first book, let alone the series, because it was so heavy on the romance. But I found myself captivated by the epic love story that the author painted across her pages. I picked the first book up on Friday, and here I sit on Sunday, wondering why the fates had to torture me so, because the fifth and final book will not release until Feb. 2012. While I loved the series, I think my one and only complaint about it was the lack of realistic language. Teenagers, pl [...]

I Received An ARC Of This Book In Exchange For My Honest Review!This is the fourth book in the series and believe it or not it just keeps getting better. I know I say that every time but with each book the characters grow and develop so much and face different obstacles. The fact that Lacey manages to find a way to continue the story and not make it seem old is great. I was so happy when I realized that Vance wasn't dead that I started crying tears of joy. Vance's being alive isn't all perfect t [...]

Imagine the worst day of your life and multiply it by 10 because that is what happens to Portia. The one she thought she could never lose who would be by her side fighting anything that came their way is gone and with it her heart. How does she pick up the pieces of her broken heart after having to bury her one true love and husband Vance. She can't make herself believe he is truly gone it is as if there is a tie the can not be broken and a fight left in Portia to discover what is really going o [...]

So things started to look up for this series when I began this book. It started off right where the last one ended, and I couldn't pull my eyes away for one second. I had to know if things would work out for my two favorite people. Over the course of this series they've been put to the test numerous times, and I had hope that they'd regain the love and devotion they've shared throughout.Of course, things are never easy for them, and they just got worse with Vance's increased demonic tendencies. [...]

Oh crap!!!!!!!! I need to read the next one now!I hope I am wrong about what I think just happened in this book because otherwise I am thoroughly grossed out, creeped out and so mad!!!Ok this is going to be a short review because I am not going to be able to say much without giving a lot away. This book was actually really frustrating for me, poor Portia! Vance pretty much ticked me off this whole time and I felt bad for Portia. A lot of crazy stuff happened in this book and that ending I did no [...]

Title Thoughts: So fitting.Cover Thoughts: I love how it shows what is to come.Wow. Weatherford has serious skills. She once again wrapped me around her finger and pushed me to finish this book, all with her words. At times, I felt as if I was gliding through the book in a numb state. Others, I was furious and filled with so much emotion that I was beside myself. Sometimes, I felt like Portia was turning into a crazed person who was blinded. However, underneath that, I was right there with her. [...]

I got this book from the author free of cost in exchange of an honest review from my side.Firstly I would like to thank the author and the publisher for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.In this sequel Vance has lost his memories and we find Portia trying her best to make him remember the time they spent together. On the other hand the evil part of Vance is again raising it’s nasty head? Will Portia get killed by the hands of her beloved? Will Vance remembe [...]

Once again Lacey Weatherford doesn't disappoint, in this installment of Portia and Vance's story the twists and turns just keep coming. You are kept on the edge of your seat, second guessing yourself and the characters in the story. Chocked full of love, mystery, witches, warlocks and demons Dark Rising is a page turner you won't want to put down.Portia's love and faith in Vance is something everyone wants in a relationship and her hope keeps you cheering for them to overcome and find each other [...]

First let me start off by saying, I never in a million years thought that I could just make a funny and ask for an early release of a book and have it work. That's just crazy talk! But I did, and the wonderful Ms. Lacey sent me the 4th book!!! So it's official, Lacey Weatherford has a new stalker, I mean fan =) I loved loved loved loved this book. Without going into detail, I absolutely loathe the cliffhanger. Especially since I received an early copy and I know I will have to wait 10 times long [...]

Lacey Weatherford is absolutely killing me with how good these endings are! I have had the same reaction to the last two book conclusions, which has been: 'WHAT? NO! NEXT BOOK!'Something I loved about this book (but maybe I could be wrong now??) is that no matter what, Vance always chooses Portia. If that does not define true love, or soul mates, then I don't know what does. The other thing I loved about this book was Portia's personality. I loved, loved, loved, that she did not sit around weepi [...]

This was probably my least favorite of the series so far. Vance and Portia have gone from being cute and in love, if married way to early/soon, to having an abusive relationship. Portia is willing to put up with whatever Vance says, do pretty much whatever he wants, as long as they stay together. I was getting really frustrated because to me it seemed like it was saying that a controlling, possessive, abusive relationship is ok as long as you love the person that is doing those things to you. Th [...]

The first 3 books in the series were centered around the loving relationship of Portia and Vance, that was what kept you rooting for them as a couple to survive. In this book they turned Vance into a jerk and completly ruined the character. I am currently reading the 5th and final book in the series and could care less if they stay together because Vance is a character I actually want to punch now. I keep finding myself wondering how Portia can still love him and hoping she finally tells him to [...]

Having loved the last book in this series, I am disappointed in this one. It lacks the one element that makes the previous books special and strong. The close relationships are very important to the fabric of this series, at least they are for me. The writing is full of heart-wrenching moments, pure evil, and very little happiness.The book does have a few interesting twists. Meeting Hex is one of the better things in this story. He is a marvelous character who does care a lot about Portia. In my [...]

OK, let me just say that I was devastated through out this entire book. I love this series, it's very well written and the characters are both loveable and fun. But I can not believe the turn this story has taken. Lance, who was one of my all time favorite leads was so dark and evil that I'm having a hard time feeling anything at all for him. Even when he was trying to be nice and loving to Portia it felt very insincere and malicious. I'm so disappointed. I hope something happens to turn this ar [...]

This book has so many wow moments in it. Portia discovers her dead husband is not quite so dead. He doesn't remember her. However, he does have a problem: he likes blood just a bit too much. I started this series in 2010 and then had to wait for the last couple books to come out. I did finally purchase the books in 2012 but never got around to finishing the series. This book was definitely worth the wait. There was so much action with demons, witches and jinns. It was shaping up to a happy endin [...]

This is book four int the witches and warlock series, as they just seem to get better. Again, Ms. Weatherford has taken a step into the supernatural that will just floor you. They characters remain constant in their personalities, and loyalties so you still feel the connection with them that has surely built up as you go.Portia runs into many unexpected obsticals to her happiness, including being kidnapped by an insane demon, meeting a warlock with unusual powers and defying her family and coven [...]

Really annoyed that portia and vance's happy ending is postponed for another book (at least i hope its a happy ending. it would be a really sad if it didn't finish that way) :( i hope everything turns around in the next book. what really annoys me is that did she really have to bring damien back after all this time, HE'S SUPPOSED TO BE DEAD he didn't get the awakening so it's confusing to how he's returned :s. the book wasn't as good as the others and the ending was a massive twist. can't wait f [...]

Lacey Weatherford's done it again. This is the fourth installment in the Witches & Warlocks series and it doesn't disappoint. These books just keep getting better & better. My emotions really went on a bit of a roller coaster ride with this one. So many twists & turns, I had a hard time keeping up with all the action. Once again I could not put this book down. And the ending, well let me just say, Wow (didn't see that one coming)!!! Can't wait for the 5th book to come out in this ser [...]

Okay.tal redemption, I must admit. The Dark Rising kept me captivated the entire timeetely irritated at some points & then full of hope in the next. It was a welcomed changed for the two characters to be seperated for most of the book, it made those sweet intimacies that much better when they had them.That ENDING?! Had me screaming at the book saying What?!!!! And, of course now I'm left to wait with everyone else until the next book drops! Well played Ms. Weatherford, well played!
