The Holy Dark by Kyoko Release Day Review!

Sarcastic demon-slayer extraordinaire Jordan Amador has been locked in a year-long struggle to hunt down the thirty silver coins paid to Judas Iscariot. The mere touch of these coins is enough to kill any angel.

Jordan's demonic opposition grows more desperate with each coin found, so they call on the ultimate reinforcement: Moloch, the Archdemon of War. Moloch puts out a contract on Jordan as well as her estranged husband, the Archangel Michael. Now Jordan and Michael will have to find a way to work together to survive against impossible odds and stop Moloch's plan, or else he’ll wage a war that will wipe out the human race.

The Holy Dark is the third novel and fourth book in The Black Parade series.

The Holy Dark is the exciting conclusion of Kyoko M.’s Black Parade series, and Holy action scenes Batman, is this exciting! This book is almost like one action scene after another with emotion and fire thrown in for good measure. Plus, the author’s normal funny sense of humor is thrown in here in there in the form of her main character, Jordan Amador’s, spunky personality.


Jordan is seriously one kick ass chick. She has taken a beating, literally and repeatedly, and just keeps coming back for more! She refuses to give up and I admire that. Her interactions with her costars are strained at times, but they are so completely developed, I have trouble forgetting they aren’t real! The relationships shown in this series are easily relatable despite the fact that, in this situation, they involve angels and demons.


This book has me so wrapped up in the story it’s not even funny. I feel so emotionally invested in these characters that I want them to pull through all the trials and tribulations in one piece. These characters are all scarred in some form or another; I don’t want them to make any more scars! There were a few times where my eyes may have leaked a little bit, but let’s keep that between us!


My only complaint would be the length. I felt like it took me FOREVER to read it even though I was very into it. I would have liked it broken up into two parts, as there is easily enough content and action scenes to have done just that, though  the specific place I’m thinking I would have ended the first part would have left most readers kind of pissed off.


The Holy Dark is a great book, as The Black Parade is a great series. You should definitely add it to your TBR pile if you haven’t already. I’m still having a hard time believing their story is finished! Excellent read!
