A Dance with Darkness by Courtney Allison Moulton

There were shadows in this alley that no light touched, and where there was no light, anything could hide.

At the end of the fourteenth century, angelic reapers struggle to defend London against a legion of the demonic who have their sights set on claiming human souls and ancient relics for a dark purpose. Madeleine, a young but powerful warrior, is duty-bound to fight the demonic, and she lives for this pursuit above all else. Then, on a routine night of tracking, she is ambushed by a cadre of reapers and, though she defeats them all, she is left wounded and at the mercy of their lord, the notorious Bastian.

Madeleine is astonished when Bastian lets her live. She goes deeper into the world of the demonic and is shocked to meet him again-this powerful reaper whose touch makes her restless and gives her a thrill unlike anything else. When they fall into a dangerous clandestine affair, her head and her heart must wage their war: can their love overcome his demonic nature? Will her dance with darkness burn her or bring Bastian into the light?

With scorching romance and fantastic action, this original novella is a prequel to Courtney Allison Moulton's gripping and epic Angelfire series.


This novella is a prequel to the Angelfire series.

A Dance with Darkness tells the story of a forbidden love affair between Bastian, an extremely powerful demonic reaper and Madeleine, a very skilled angelic reaper. Cadan and Nathaniel also make an appearance in this story as well. Bastian and Madeleine are the parents of Will, whose story begins in Angelfire.

Bastian and Madeleine’s love happens pretty rapidly. When they are together they feel things for each other that despite their obvious differences makes it hard for them to deny.

This story is a prime example of how opposites really do attract and how affairs of the heart can lead them down a thrilling yet dangerous road.

I enjoyed Courtney Moulton’s writing. The world and the characters she creates are awesome. Even though it was short, it was still entertaining and easy to get into.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
