    This is a remarkably vivid fantasy tale. Husk uses her words to paint this world before her audience. The world surrounding the characters becomes vividly real, allowing readers full access to the story. The plot was well thought out & presented. Romance & chemistry vie with courtly intrigue for centre stage. The story was well developed & well rounded. I simply found that this instalment had a hard time holding my attention throughout. I repeatedly found myself putting it down and w [...]

    This was a very detailed and character driven story, Henry and Darah were not your usual couple who fell in love easy like in most paranormal novels. They had to fight all the way to the end of the book to find out for sure how they felt.This was a novel that fed you little pieces of a relationship and small pieces of action, you will enjoy the story but I felt there was more story that we were not given when the book ended. The story around Kaid kept being fed to us as if there was going to be [...]

    Originally Reviewed For: Tea and BookI thought Shona Husk had left Annwyn with the resolution of the throne. It seems, I thought wrong. Annwyn may have a new King and Queen it may be in a very long spring (Summer won't come until the new child is born) and life may slowly be resuming. But it's not same old same old. It seems that the war for Annwyn has caused billions of humans to die. Plagues, famines, petty wars and other issues accompanied the war to rule Annwyn. While a few fairies might hav [...]

    I relish every story in this series about the Court of Annwyn and the fickle selfish fairies who reside there. These fairies are not sweet and light but cold, self serving and never to be trusted. In the previous book To Love a King the author showed us just how truly soulless they really are and yet here that idea is turned completely on it's head as our hero needs a fresh soul every year just to survive! Yes Henry Saint is neither human nor Fae and yet he is caught in the middle of the afterma [...]

    Free, ARC by NetGalley, thank you!This is part of a series, but not the first book. So I obviously did not get some of the references. It did not leave any gaping holes, though.War in fairy leaks into the mortal world, half a billion people die of various, not further defined plagues. Society breaks down to some extent (all of this is backstory). Food is scarce, taxes are not being paid, but cell phones and electricity are still working. And TV is still being broadcasted. Not a believable scenar [...]

    One of the best UF/dark fantasies I've read in a while. The faeries that Shona has created can be downright cruel and dark. But that same darkness is what makes them so appealing and emotion-ridden. Henry Saint is our hero, who has to kill someone every year on his birthday in order to stay alive. Not the best way to celebrate one’s birthday but after so many years he may have found a way to make up for all the souls he’s taken. To me he’s sort of a tortured soul despite the fact he doesn' [...]

    Falan, the new King of Annwyn sends Lady Darah merch Hathor on a mission to the human realm to spy on darkling Henry Saint, in exchange for a place on his Council.The Darkling Lord is a creative and awe-inspiring novel that was hard to put down.I like Henry. He has had to fend for himself his entire life. He’s not considered human or fairy but an anomaly. He didn’t even know what he was until he was forty. I appreciate that he feels remorse for the lives he has to take in order to stay alive [...]

    I've only recently started reading Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files" and the opening of "The Darkling Lord" had the same noir vibe. Noir and fantasy - great combination.I enjoy Shona Husk's books. She has an interesting ability to introduce an anti-hero and make me believe in his value -- in how he accepts his own flaws, but acts to make the world a better place -- not that he's schmaltzy about it!Henry is a bit of an anti-hero, but more heroic than anything. I liked him. I liked his complicated wor [...]

    Darkling Lord leaves the courts of Anwyn behind for the human world in which society has broken down due to the aftermath of plagues that were the fallout from the decline of the old Fae king. No longer a silent invisible shadow servant and looking to find favor with the new king, Darah is sent to Detroit to spy on Darkling, Henry, who looks to be amassing an army of Grey's for some purpose. I actually really liked Darkling Lord, this is probably my favorite of the books so far. I really felt fo [...]

    I had read the Shadowland series by Shona Husk but none of the Annwyn Series. I find her work to be freshly original. In The Darkling Lord Ms. Husk delivers an intriguing story again. Even though I had not read the earlier books in the series, I was able to follow the storyline without many problems. Since this story is focused more with life in the mortal world than in Court it was an easy follow. The mortal world that Ms. Husk has so vividly painted is a dreary one full of human suffering. Whi [...]

    The Darkling Lord (Court of Annwyn #4) by Shona Husk Falan, the new King of Annwyn sends Lady Darah merch Hathor on a mission to the human realm to spy on darkling Henry Saint, in exchange for a place on his Council. The Darkling Lord is a creative and awe-inspiring novel that was hard to put down. I like Henry.

    Initial Thoughts: I didn't know what to expect after the last novel. However, I was genuinely surprised by this one and I really liked it. I enjoyed the dance between Henry and Darah. The realism in the nature and resolution of their relationship was refreshing and I liked it. I hope to see more of them in the future novels. With this novel we also see the Post-Winter changes that are taking place and how Felan is going to rule. So far, I really respect him and like what he is doing. I hope to s [...]

    Book 4 in the Court of Annwyn series takes things in a new direction (which is why I gave books 4, 5 and 6 a sub-series name). This time we go into the lives of the banished and exiled fairies and also see the recovery of the mortal world from the fairy plagues. I really enjoyed writing Henry :) Some of you might recognize Darah from Lord of the Hunt.

    Very character driven book. It started strong, but seemed to get mired down about a third of the way in and lost some interest because it was so repetitive and back and forth of same thing between Darah and Henry. Picked back up again about 70% into book.

    So let me say this- I haven't read this author. *gasp* I know. I know who she is, and I've heard wonderful things about everything she writes. So I had to read this one. I wanted to know if it was true- LOL it was. She's an excellent writer and has created a fascinating world. Which now means I am going to have to read everything! LOL This one is about the fae. And no, we're definitely not going to Tink. We are talking some cruel, soulless beings here. It's a dark world, and it's crazy good! And [...]

    I’ve always loved stories about the Fae and what happens when the mortal world collides with the fairy one. Fae are morally gray and that makes them such great characters. You can’t predict what they will do. Husk’s Court of Annwyn series is pure paranormal romance with all the basic tropes, including forbidden romances…which is my romance drug of choice. But Husk has also created an intriguing fairy world for her characters to play in. Forbidden romance + world building + fairy = Happy [...]

    I wasn't sure what to expect about this book after the last one and I enjoyed reading Henry and Darah's story too.I had a feeling I would like Henry and I did especially when he decided to do something that would benefit others as well. I liked how he becomes a leader in his own right but not the cliche type that wants more than necessary. Henry is a Darkling, a child of human and a Grey. In order for him to survive he has to steal a soul every year on his birthday. I can't imagine the ordeal he [...]

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This book introduces us to the dark world of a "darkling" who has to steal a soul every year in order to survive. Somehow the author has managed to make this soul-stealer into a sympathetic hero, no matter how he got there.Darah has one task - to spy on the darkling who is gathering an army of the banished. She assumes it should be easy, especially since she was raised in the ways of the court. Little did she know, she would be put [...]

    Great Book!This is a great book; this is the fourth book in the Court of Annwyn series by Shona Husk. Henry is a darkling, not fairy and not human. Every year on his birthday he must kill someone for their soul, so that he can live another year. Darah is a spy for the King of Annwyn and he wants her to join the darkling’s court to find out what Henry’s endgame is. Darah is also a soulless fae who can survive Henry’s deadly kiss. I really enjoyed reading Henry and Darahs story and was glad [...]

    Henry Saint must kill someone and take their soul every year on his birthday to exist. He was the product of a human and a grey - a banished fairy. A kiss will steal the soul Henry needs. Henry has survived over a century which is a rarity for a Darkling. He started out in poverty and worked himself up to a successful man. There seemed to be something left unresolved by the end of this story. I really didn’t like that. Also a lot of the time this story had problems keeping my attention and I b [...]

    I received this ebook from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I don't know why, maybe fairies are not really my cup of tea, but this book did nothing to me. I wasn't emotionally involved. It was well written so it's not for lack of writing skills. But I didn't connect whatsoever with the characters. Vote: 2.5 stars
