Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Resurrected Darkly is a work of paranormal romance fiction penned by author Tarrant Smith and the fifth novel in the Darkly Series. In this powerful tale of resurrection-like romance and feisty tempers, we return to the newly-crowned king of the Unseelie court, focusing on Hueil’s niece, Ena. Ena has the heart of a dragon, so when the gods see fit to enter her life, she is wary but unafraid. She seeks to play out their game to keep peace with the matchmaker, but the disgraced warrior that Ena is led to brings her more than she could imagine. Crank, for his part, is in dire need of a new reason to live, and Ena might just be it.

Having read several works in the Darkly Series recently, I think I enjoyed Resurrected Darkly most of all because of the deep, dark nature of its hero, Crank. His emotional and psychological journey back to life really enhances the romantic plot of the novel, elevating its intimate scenes beyond the physical, and into the powerful capacity that such intimacy has to remind people of the gift of life itself. Author Tarrant Smith plays this romance out beautifully to convey those important messages and uplift readers in this redeeming and superbly atmospheric love story. Ena makes a great match for him, just as the gods suggested, encompassing empowerment as well as sensuality to portray a powerful female lead in charge of her own decisions. Overall, Resurrected Darkly comes very highly recommended for paranormal romance fans.
