#BookReview – “Dark Light” by Jayne Castle


Reporter Sierra McIntyre's stories on Crystal City's ghost hunters—and their mysterious guild—have earned her tabloid a bit of respect. It helps that she has her incredible intuition to fall back on. Especially when she interviews Ghost Hunter Guild Boss John Fontana about the disappearances of retired, homeless hunters.

Sierra doesn't want to trust the physically and psychically powerful man, but her senses—and her pet dust bunny, Elvis—give her the green light. To uncover the conspiracy within his own organisation, Fontana proposes . . . marriage. And though it's purely a business arrangement, there is nothing pure about the attraction that sizzles between them.


In the fifth Harmony series book, reporter Sierra McIntyre is investigating a powerful new drug called Ghost Juice and the disappearances of several drug-addicted ex-hunters from the local guild. When the new guild boss promises her an interview, she never expected he would propose marriage.
As the head of the organization, it’s John Fontana’s job to stop the drug flow in his city and to find the missing hunters. Since his and Sierra’s investigations are running side by side, Fontana wants to team up. As the boss’s wife, she’d be safe from their mutual enemies, and they can work together to take down the bad guys.
Fontana and Sierra are amazing together. Though the book takes place within the span of a few days, they fall in love fast but it’s believable.
Though I really liked this book and the series, it’s getting repetitive. Most of the hunter population on Harmony can only harness green ghost light. Blue, silver, and now dark light has been introduced in the last three books. It’s rare when hunters can access different colors of light on the wavelength spectrum, but since it’s been the same plot device for the past three books, it doesn’t seem all that special anymore.
The dust bunnies are my favorite part of this series. Sierra’s bunny, Elvis, loves the spotlight. He wears a leather jacket and serenades other bunnies with his little guitar. I absolutely love this, but it doesn’t make much sense. When the humans settled on Harmony two hundred years ago, they didn’t bring over any art with them. Since music is an art form, I don’t understand how the humans would even know about rock and roll legend Elvis and why the bunny would choose to impersonate him.
Even though I find this book similar to the previous few books, I really enjoyed it and plan to read more in the series.
4 Stars
