REVIEW: Closer by Dannika Dark

Closer by Dannika Dark

Kane never believed in things like fate or karma. Not until the night he took a life.

Within the human world is a secret society of immortals and gifted supernaturals. Kane is one of them—a Sensor who experiences emotional energy through touch. But despite his good looks and easy-going personality, Kane lives a solitary life. Unlike other Sensors, he is unnaturally hypersensitive.

Touch brings pain.

Fate throws a curveball when a woman’s life is placed in his hands. Kane is suddenly faced with a difficult decision, each with its own moral consequence, and time is not on his side.

Will she be his salvation, or his ruination?

Closer is a standalone novella that is based in the same world of the Mageri series, but is not part of the Mageri series.

After reading all five of the Mageri Series Novels, I wasn’t going to pass this novella up!
Closer is set in the same breed world as the Mageri series, but not the same place exactly. The characters aren’t the same as the ones in the Mageri Series, but it’s…. Dannika Dark has written every book I have read, in the same breed world, different breeds living among humans in plain sight… That being said… This book is a standalone, so you don’t have to have read any of the Mageri Series to understand this one, but trust me… you’re going to want to read them after this if you haven’t already!!
Closer has our leading man Kane who is a Sensor. Sensors can transfer emotions both to and from others through their hands. Kind of like a rechargeable battery, but instead of electricity, emotions.  For most Sensors, this is a good thing and can be quite profitable if done right. Well… For Kane, touching…. Getting the emotions from others, hurts him.
Since this is such a short story, I’m not going to give a lot of details because I don’t want to give anything away.
Kane meets a woman names Caroline through a set of circumstances that’s anything but pleasant and Kane realizes Caroline is also a sensor but is in a coma(you find out why when you read it.. lol I can’t tell.) and Kane tries diligently to bring her out of the coma.
I loved this story even though it was short. I do wish it was longer though, not  because it’s missing anything, or that it’s unfinished, because it is, there’s nothing missing really and there’s not a cliffhanger, but I just wasn’t ready for it to end! Lol

I give this book 5 out of 5 shields!
