​​​​​​​"From cover to cover, Smith delivers insanely well-drawn characters and enough moments of levity to keep this paranormal romance moving along at a brisk pace. Never does Smith's work lack. As the author bounces from one subplot to the next and back, she keeps readers on their toes and deeply involved with each of the main characters and their tragic lives."

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Surrendered Darkly is a work of romantic paranormal fiction written by author Tarrant Smith, and is another addition to the Darkly Series set in the world of the Fey people. In this story, we focus on the gods' realm and the Unseelie court, where we meet Cora and Neb. After Cora has her heart broken by Neb, she watches him from her position as handmaiden to a goddess, horrified by the arrogant, hedonistic soul he has become. But when Neb is commanded to return to Cora and bed her to get a trick over on the goddess herself, it turns out that his own feelings on the subject might be more meaningful than anyone first thought.

Something which I really admire about the Darkly Series is the strength and realism of the world in which it is built, connecting characters and concepts from other books, whilst at the same time delivering the same high-quality hot romance novel for its readers every time. Author Tarrant Smith keeps it fresh with another pair of romancers, and I particularly enjoyed this match as Cora balances heart and head very well throughout the tale. Neb was fun to read, dynamic on every page and vividly described from head to toe, and once again Smith’s attention to detail and strong emotional inner monologue lends itself to powerful storytelling. Overall, Surrendered Darkly marks another vivid and engaging addition to an already excellent series, and I’d highly recommend it for romance, fantasy and fey fans everywhere.
