Series Review: Extinguish and Reignite by JM Darhower



One… Two… Three… Four…

I Declare War

Serah always believed the world around her was perfect. As a Power, one of the warrior angels, she has spent her existence defending the innocent from evil. After tragedy strikes, tearing Serah's brother from her life, she's given the task of stopping the approaching apocalypse before it's too late.

Only one thing, though: she has to venture to Hell to do it.

Lucifer—or Luce, as he prefers to be called—has been biding his time in Hell, longing for revenge against those who oh-so-easily cast him into the pit. When the heavenly beauty shows up at his gate, he's just as captivated by her presence as she becomes of him. The attraction between them is palpable, and Serah's willpower slowly slips. How can this charming creature, this scarred Archangel, be the one annihilating the world she so loves?

As the war wages on, the world entwined in chaos, Serah starts questioning everything she ever knew. When the light and dark, hot and cold, finally collide, she has to make a choice—a choice that sets her world on fire, black and white exploding into colorful flames.

Serah has questions. She wants answers.
Luce just wants to play a game.




It’s no secret that I love JM Darhower and I love a great paranormal romance novel. So it was a given that I would love Extinguish.
Serah is an angel. She loves to help humans and particularly loves a duo  of little girls in the school yard. Then she is called upon to go down to Hell and try to convince Lucifer to stop the war. Lucifer is technically just a fallen Archangel, the first angel born of God. His brother Michael sent him to Hell to rule over the evils after Lucifer challenged God.
Serah visits Lucifer day in and day out. After many visits and thousands of card games of War, feelings develop. Feelings an angel should never have for Satan.
This book had amazing character development. I felt what Serah felt. I shed tears for every character. I even felt for Lucifer. The emotions these characters had jumped off the pages and right into my heart.
And the sex…. WOAH! JM Darhower KNOWS how to right a hot sexy sex scene.
As much as Extinguish ends wrapping up the story, I was MORE than thankful that she gave us more of Serah, Lucifer and Michael. I highly recommend this series if you like Paranormal Romances. 




The moment the short-lived apocalypse came to an end, life returned to normal. Mortals continued on with their oblivious existences while the earth healed and flowers again bloomed, the devastation instantly wiped away. It was as if it had never happened. 

But it did. 

Luce knows. He’s cursed to remember every moment, forced to live with everything he has done. Suddenly finding himself out of confinement, he’s faced with a decision: where to call “home”. Free will turns out not to be the freedom he expects when the only thing he wants doesn’t know he exists. 

Serah woke up with no memory of where she came from or who she was before that moment. Struggling to adapt to the world as a mortal, she’s haunted by a set of bright blue eyes that always seem to be watching her. She can’t shake the feeling that he could be her salvation… if only she can remember him before it’s too late. 

Lucifer didn’t fall from Grace alone. He’s not the only angel with a grudge, nor is he the only one fascinated by his beautiful mortal. 

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions...




Reviewing the sequel of Extinguish, Reignite is going to a challenge. I don’t want to spoil anything for you so bare with me.  I was so happy that JM continued Serah and Lucifier’s story. I was really sucked into their romance. Reignite did not disappoint.
It was truly one of best conclusions to a love story I have ever read. The love and connection these two shared was remarkable. When love was thrown a curve ball, these two were able to adapt to the changes. Their love grew and knew one bounds.
The author gave us a new character that shook the book up. Abaddon was an angel that was once apart of Luce’s original plans for war. He reappeared really brought the book more exciting drama.
I can’t say anymore without ruining both Extinguish and Reignite but I will leave you with this… I LOVED this series. I will be recommending it to all my PNR friends. JM Darhower’s writing was amazing as always and I will read all her books sight unseen I love her books so much
