Blog tour de troops: Review: The Dark Rising by Lacey Weatherford

Official blurb: When Portia Mullins discovers the love of her life is still alive her heart soars. But reality sets in immediately causing it to plummet when she realizes he doesn’t remember his past life with her. Unwilling to give up, she embarks on a loving quest to restore his life to him.
Vance Mangum sees the beautiful girl claiming to be his wife, and while he can’t remember her, he can’t deny the intense pull he feels between them. Not knowing where else to turn, he agrees to give her the time she’s asked for and to assist her in the effort to recover his memories.
The two quickly reconnect, but dark surprises are lurking in the wings when Vance discovers a desperate longing for something he feels he can’t withstand. Will he be able to resist? Or will evil raise its head in a new form, leaving Portia as the prey of the very man her heart desires?
Darkness reigns supreme in this haunting tale of love and desperation, Of Witches and Warlocks, The Dark Rising.

I have to admit when I first started reading, I was slightly lost because I haven’t read the previous books but I was quickly drawn into the world of Portia and Vance.  Poor Portia, I really felt for her, she can’t deny magic, it’s a part of her but at the same time it’s torn her life apart and taken away the love of her life only to give him back to her but without his memories.  It seemed to me that Vance was both the hero and the villian of the story without really trying to be either.  I completely fell in love with Vance and with Portia and Vance’s whole relationship, there seems to be an intriguing push/pull dynamic which so many of the best fictional couples have.  This story is definitely one of the better supernatural stories I’ve read and I will absolutely be toddling off to read the previous installments.
