Anya—a stoic, blue-winged angelic warrior— was bitten by a demon prince in battle, and now she has precious little time to find a cure for his deadly venom. But the only archangel with the power to stop the dark poison from corrupting her body and soul is missing. She’ll have to trust her guide, the outcast high demon Dommiel, who is as handsome as he is dangerous if she has any hope.

An outcast of his own kind, high demon Dommiel stays under cover while the war between angels and demons rages on. But when the only person who ever showed him kindness asks for his help, he has no choice but to try to save the angel. Venturing back into the dens he has avoided for so long, Anya makes him want and feel things he never thought possible.

But Dommiel knows there is no way an angel can ever love a demon…

“Even the darkest heart yearns for the light.”

Darkest Heart is book one in a brand new series called Dominion by Juliette Cross. I just this minute finished this book and my heart and my mind are filled with emotion. Above all else, this is a love story. A deep bond between two opposing forces,... ...more

By Nicola August 03, 2018

Juliette Cross kicks off her Dominion series with one hell of a bang and if you’ve read The Vessel Trilogy and The Deepest Well (although not imperative), demon, Dommiel will be no stranger, nor will the battle between angels and demons. Some books are there to be savoured rather than devoured an... ...more

By Deborah July 30, 2018

At the beginning of this book I kind of felt like I was playing catch-up, there was a lot of information and introductions and it just seemed as if I was missing out.
Things settled down and it can easily be read as a stand-alone (it is a stand-alone). I was a little annoyed with myself when I di... ...more

By Beth August 13, 2018

Sultry, sexy and lots of action, Darkest Heart is one of those roller coaster romance rides that you just don't want to get off.

I received this ARC copy of Darkest Heart from Entangled Publishing, LLC - Amara. This is my honest and voluntary review. Darkest Heart is set for publication Aug 20,... ...more

By Claire August 08, 2018

5 - "We always knew our story would be a tragedy... didn't we?" Stars!

Another exceptional story from the mind of Juliette Cross, an author who is fast becoming one of my go-to authors for Paranormal/Fantasy reads.

If you have read The Vessel Trilogy or The Deepest Well most of the main characters... ...more

By Bev July 22, 2018

When I started Darkest Heart I was a little afraid that Anya was going to be this Little Miss Perfect goodie two shoes. And whilst she's the good to Dommiel's bad, the light to his dark, she is in no way Little Miss Perfect. This girlie has some serious badass going on, and wasn't afraid to fight... ...more

By Carvanz July 20, 2018

Holy heck! Is 5 stars all I can give it??? There are just no words to describe this book and all the feels that I experienced while reading it!

Anya is in need of assistance to help her find the archangel Uriel. When she is introduced to Dommiel, she can’t allow herself to fully trust him. He is a... ...more

By Tanja ~ KT Book Reviews July 17, 2018

From the first sentence this reader was taken in by Dommiel.

“ I love the smell of sex and brimstone in the morning”

He’s my favorite type of character; one that comes with a rueful arrogance, that not only makes him a cocky delight, but a blistering hot antihero that will put him firmly in plac... ...more

By Natalie August 14, 2018

Darkest Heart quickly became one of my favorite reads of 2018!!

Time is running out for Anya. She was an angel bitten by a demon prince and his venom was slowly but surely working its way to her heart. Once it did, she'd be a slave to the demon and no longer in control of herself. She's desperat... ...more

By Mindy Lou's Book Review August 02, 2018

Darkest Heart is about the battle between Angels and Demons. Before the war, Anya was a guardian angel over orphaned and neglected children. Now she is fighting against the demons who are taking fellow angels and humans as slaves. She's about as innocent as you can get and still be a fierce fight... ...more

By Marta July 19, 2018

Well who doesn’t love a bad boy ? Dommiel is everything you want in an antihero as for a start he’s a demon , he’s considered to be a traitor as he dances to his own tune and his cocky attitude belies just how jaded by life he is. So pairing him up with a sunny, do goody angel really sets the sta... ...more

By Kira July 22, 2018

4.5 stars

This is my favorite book by Juliette Cross. It was much better than I thought it would be. I love angels and demons stories. Anya was an angel on a mission to find the archangel Uriel. She couldn't do it alone. She was paired with an unlikely ally, the demon Dommiel. They were very diffe... ...more

By Rhenna July 27, 2018

Okay, I'm a sucker for the bad boy romances. Everyone who knows me knows that's my thing. And yeah, Dommiel is as bad as they get. I mean, he's a demon after all. But Juliette took my addiction and added the ultimate kicker with this one...


And at the hands of an angel, no less.

I mean,... ...more

By Christina July 20, 2018

To be honest, I feel like I've been waiting for this book for a millennia. After reading The Vessel Series by this author (which is referenced in this one), I KNEW Dommiel needed his own story. I guess it's true what they say, "the best things come to those who wait". This was SOOOOO worth the wa... ...more

By nick August 07, 2018

This was very enjoyable! The romance was especially great. There's just something about an opposites attract romance!

By Zoe July 20, 2018

Whew-ey Juliette Cross penned the most juicy PNR I've read in ages. Anya and Dommiel have a smoldering chemistry from moment one that steams into some scorching scenes that'll keep you turning the pages for more. We've got two lonely opposites, the demon who's done all the sins (and then some) an... ...more

By Cherie July 14, 2018

The perpetual battle between good and evil takes center stage when angel Anya needs the help of Dommiel, a demon, to save archangel and leader of the demon hunters, Uriel. In "Darkest Heart", we get to revisit characters we met in Juliette Cross's Vessel series and discover new ones as well. This... ...more

By Naima July 27, 2018

Full review to come, but epic! And utterly dark and delicious in the best of ways. Dommiel is the perfect anti-hero! ...more

***Received an Advanced Readers Copy through the author in exchange for an honest review - thank you Juliette Cross***

Cheese and crackers... Juliette you slay me. Just - ugh loved it comrades! This was a five stars hands down it was glorious. Juliette just take all the fucking stars. Gory hell it... ...more

By Meghan Lloyd August 03, 2018

The first thing that drew me to this book was the forbidden romance of an angel and a demon - it blurs the lines between good and evil, and it gives a realistic portrayal of love that can be glossed over a lot in other books. Not to mention the hot guy on the cover, let's not forget him and his t... ...more

By Jacque August 09, 2018

I can’t believe I FINALLY popped my Juliette Cross cherry! I mean I am well aware of this author having quite the girl chubby for several of her covers, but never actually peeked beyond the covers until now. Oh. Oh wow! The covers were just the appetizer for the main meal and when it comes to foo... ...more

By Julie July 22, 2018

Oh my gosh, this book was so freaking good!!! Dommiel just topped my list of all time favorite male leads! He’s sharply intelligent, borderline arrogant, and has this intensely sensuous personality that just pulled me in... I mean seriously, his opening line alone told me I was in for a freaking... ...more

By Angie July 17, 2018

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a great effin ride!! This book was absolutely perfect! Every chapter had me glued to my chair. Darkest Heart is filled with so many great moments of laughter, love, tears, kick ass scenes, and yet by the end you wish there wasn’t a final chapter so... ...more

By Amy August 08, 2018

When first starting Darkest Heart I was confused. There is a lot of backstory you simply don't know. I actually stopped reading to check if this was a second work in a series to explain how much I felt I was missing. Once you get over the fact that you're thrown directly into a world where you ha... ...more

By Tracie August 03, 2018

4.5 Stars Darkest Heart is book one in the Dominion series and my first read by Juliette Cross. It felt a bit overwhelming feeding a lot of information early on but it is well worth it, a great read with amazing characters this one hooked me and totally kept me there throughout. Darkest Heart was... ...more

About the author

Juliette Cross

Juliette calls lush, moss-laden Louisiana home where the landscape curls into her imagination, creating mystical settings for her stories. She has a B.A. in creative writing from Louisiana State University, a M.Ed. in gifted education, and was privileged to study under the award-winning author Ernest J. Gaines in grad school. Her love of mythology, legends, and art serve as constant inspiration for her works. From the moment she read JANE EYRE as a teenager, she fell in love with the Gothic romance--brooding characters, mysterious settings, persevering heroines, and dark, sexy heroes. Even then, she not only longed to read more novels set in Gothic worlds, she wanted to create her own.
