Kristina Chase is a necromancer, a very powerful necromancer in the Creator category. Kris wants nothing to do with her necromancy. This has a lot to do with the fact Kris hears and sees ghosts seeking vengeance for their deaths at the hands of the creatures raised by the Center. So far, Kris has managed to find peace for these ghosts and help them move on, by killing the vampires that caused their deaths. The vampires Kris kills are your typical "evil" vampires. The Council of Necromancers has been after Kris for years to join them, specifically Rush Davis, leader of the Council. Despising them for raising vampires, creatures who, in her experience, do nothing but prey on humans, Kris refuses every time. Kris really knows little about her powers or how necromancing works. When Rush Davis calls again, Kris knows she might as well answer, because if she doesn't he will just come over, and she can't deal with her undeniable attraction to him, the enemy. This time though, he has different news for Kris that will throw her into a tailspin and start a chain of events that will see Kris forced to develop her necromancer powers and battling almost every evil creature you could think of, with a little help along the way. With a six foot resident ghost to bounce things off, a sister keeping secrets and Kris' new creation, the intriguing cast of characters keeps this book interesting right to the very action-packed ending. The paranormal world being created by the author is a refreshingly different The sudden plot twists and abrupt changes in narratives will have your brain racing trying to keep up. Although not creating the smoothest reading experience, it is compelling. All in all, a good, solid start to what promises to be a very exciting new series.

    Great book!!! I won a complimentary copy of this book, and I'm extremely glad I did. I loved Gena's first two books, Ember's Curse and Roxanne Desired, but Created Darkly surpasses both of them. The chemistry and interactions between the characters were great. This book is filled with love, suspense, drama, comedy, some pretty steamy scenes, and so much more.

Kris Chase and Rush Davis are two creators/necromancers that come together for the same cause. Kris hates everything that she thinks Rush stands for, but is still very attracted to him. When some unfortunate circumstances are put into play Kris along with her best friend Jude, who is a ghost set out to fix the problems. Along the way, they team up with Rush and a very full of himself vampire, Rafe. Somewhere in between all the issues, Rush gets past Kris's walls and becomes a very important person in her life. In the end, they accomplish some of their goals and fix some of the problems. Gena D. Lutz lets you see in Created Darkly that you can't always judge someone by who or what they are and sometimes people surprise you. I definitely can not wait to see what happens next for this quirky group. Definitely a must read.

This book was everything I expected it to be and more.

Good romance aspect but the book isn't consumed with it like many tend to be right now. Very much looking forward to what comes next!

    I don't know why it took me so long to read this book, but WOW. Gena has really outdone herself with Created Darkly. She's improved immensely on her writing technique, and really drew me in to the storyline. I'm so excited for the continuance of this story, and I just can't get enough of Rush, Rafe, and Devil. Jude is alright, but he reminds me of a little brother. Well done, Gena! I desperately want to play Cowboys and Indians now. Read Created Darkly. You'll understand.

    Very exciting first book in a new series. Ms. Lutz has a whole new concept of how vampires come to be. Kris Chase is a "Creator" of vampires from a long-line of women with incredible powers - but, the only thing she wants is to save her sister who has been kidnapped. Ghouls, ghosts, and vampires all play an important parts in this quick read. I highly recommend this book - and cannot wait until the next book comes out. Very exciting first book in a new series.

Kris has no family aside from her sister Torra who she will do anything for. Rush is the head of the Center of Necromancers and very much has feelings for Kris. He will do anything just to speak to her thus his many calls trying to get her to work for the center. Rush brings Kris a bit of bad news regarding her sister and she absolutely refuses any help of any kind. Well his anyway she has no problem letting Jude (her ghostly BFF) help at all. In a twisted turn of events Kris is forced to use her gift in the way it was intended though she abhors having to do it. The results of that action and other actions she is forced to take to save her sister are epic to say the least. This is a wonderful story with a great twist on necromancy as well as on how vamps are created. I love the wit and spunk these characters show and cannot wait to see what happens next.

The story was amazing and the way it is written keeps your mind fully enveloped in their world and turning pages constantly to find out what happens. My only complaint was the ending. I felt it got a little rushed and ended somewhat abruptly, but that is it. And honestly, it didn’t bother me much because of how much action there was. Now the only thing I find myself asking is when can I read the next book? This was a great read and I can’t wait to read more from Gena D Lutz.

This read had me wanting more of this story line. Gena Lutz captures the readers attention from the start of the book and does not let the reader go. There is vampires, ghouls, ghosts, hellhounds, action and romance that any paranormal romance reader would love to sink their teeth into this book.

    Vampires. There is so much lore out there and so many takes on how they are created, how they act and what they can do. I love most of them, hate a few (Twilight) and kinda shrug at the rest. Gena fell into the love list. In a world were people pay to be Reanimated by a Creator vampires are commonplace. I was drawn in from the beginning and had fun talking to the characters and them talking back…ok not really. This book has all the good stuff vampires, ghost, ghouls and hellhounds.

I love Jude, the resident ghost. He makes me want to be a ghost and I actually fell more in love with him than with Rush, the main male character. I usually hate first person books but this was one I can read again. Instead of staying with just Kris POV Gena also let us follow Rush POV and this made me feel like I wasn’t missing anything. This is a great opening to a series I believe will be a big hit.

    Being able to create vampires is not something Kris wants to do, regardless of her ability to do so. Instead, she hunts the vile creatures down and destroys them.

The romance was a little quick for me maybe but then when people are thrown in life death situations it brings the whole 'you don't have a lot of time in life to waste' to the forefront! So I could bypass that and still enjoy it! Also helped that these two had some major chemistry going on and some racy scenes that the author spiced up quite nicely! ;) definitely glad that I read this! Hope it's a series I want more!!!

Kris is such a strong, caring woman who has her principles & feels very strongly in what Gena has Created a Hit! I don’t know if I have enough words to describe how much I loved this book!

Created Darkly is the first book in her new series and it centers around Kris Chase who is a Necromancer, and how she has to learn to accept and embrace her magic to save the life of someone she cares about. Kris is such a strong, caring woman who has her principles & feels very strongly in what she does to the point that she refuses to work with the Center as their beliefs & uses of their powers conflict with hers. I couldn’t help but admire her & I found myself starting to root for her from almost the first page! Gena has created such a unique & detailed world complete with loveable characters, enough mystery to keep your on your toes and a unique array of friends, villains & paranormal characters to keep my wanting more! I have personally never read a book where the lead character is a Necromancer so this is a whole new paranormal world I want to explore and learn more about. It is not often that I get absorbed into a new book that quickly so I think that should also help to prove how great of a book this is. In fact, I found that I was hooked from the start and had a hard time putting the book down, even when I was at the end! The attention to detail not only on the character level, but also with the history, the magics & with the paranormal creatures all helps to solidify Gena’s future as not only a Paranormal Author, but as a best-selling, Here-To-Stay author who will be a permanent fixture on the Top 10 Author charts for years to come! So I sincerely hope that Gena has plans to write multiple books in this series not only because I am hooked, but also because of this terrific new world (to me anyways!) that she has created (and so that she can prove me right on my all of my claims!) LOL!!

Only one problem, she brings them back as vampires instead of humans. This is the job she should be doing for the center but she has no intention of doing that so she does the opposite. She's kills vampires. She doesn't believe in what the center represents and vows to kill as many vampires as possible. Her killing spreeing comes to an end when her sister, Torra goes missing and someone named Wolf has her but won't release her until Kristina does something's for him. She's not alone in her mission. She has her BFF and friendly ghost Jude and Rush, the guy she can't have but like, a lot. Only one problem, he believes in the center's rules and belief and is on the council. Kristina has to jump through hoops for Wolf to get her sister back but nothing is ever simple in her world. It's a great book and jumps straight in without any build up. I wasn't sure if i liked this idea but it's was great to get into the thick of it than waiting for something to happen. There was always so my action that i never got bored and was actually quite addictive to this story. I loved the loveable BFF Jude, he was at time rather cute and funny. Sexy on legs, Rush was another great character and i loved the balance between the storyline and the romance. The romance never overshadowed the action and i main storyline and i loved that. A really great story, very enjoyable and i loved the idea of a creator. It put a new spin on a paranormal story. Really happy that i got the opportunity to review this book. Great Book!

    I was given a copy for a honest review. I enjoyed reading this book. It was a unique paranormal romance book, where a creator/Necromancer can get rid of vampires & also create them and see and communicate to ghosts. Some very unique and odd friendships.

It's funny in places, has its kick-ass action and some steamy sexy scenes between Kris & Rush. Looking forward to see what adventures the group have next.

    This is a paranormal romance with a touch of kick butt and take names later. This is the first book in the Kris Chase series. This is a definite page turner and there is never a dull moment through out the book. I would recommend this to any paranormal lover.

This is a definite page turner and there is never a dull moment through out the book. I would recommend this to any paranormal lover. I am in love with all the main characters, and the new ones found along the way. Kristina Chase is headstrong, devoted to her beliefs but is the first to admit when she is wrong. I found her character refreshing, she stood up for what she thought was right, and changed her attitude when proven otherwise. Family is everything to her and she will do anything to protect them! I can not wait to read more. This is the story about Kristina Chase, she is a necromancer, she has the power to create vampires. Little does she know she has other powers to discover. For years The Center whom is a "business" that creates vampires (and is paid very well) want her on their team. Kris does not give in to them, she uses her powers to destroy vampires. Then everything changes when someone she holds dear to her heart is threatened. She will do anything to keep her loved one safe, even if it goes against everything she believes in. Favorite passages: "Thanks for the info, Captain Obvious. I would've never thought of that." "If you're waiting to be served, your majesty, then you'll be waiting a long time." "His eyes burned a fire through me as he spoke." "She was also a hell on wheels spitfire that has a severe problem with authority, but even so, you couldn't find a more devoted and loyal servant." "I was fully pumped and ready to face any possible dangers, fanged foes, boogey men or anything else that may be thrown in my path." "If she was going to be sneaky and up to no good, at least she was going about it like a boss." "Ever since our first meeting a couple years back, I'd been drawn to her like a moth to a flame." "I could cut the tension between you two with my fangs." "I seriously hoped that the eerie, jovial tune wasn't an omen, because I swore if a freaky, balloon-toting, dancing clown was behind that door, my a** was out of here." "Don't mind me; perv away. phantom boy." "I fell deep into motherly love with Kristina's grandmother after that stunt." "We are family. That always comes first." <3

I've gotten a little burned out on romance novels. This was more action-packed with a little romance and hit me where I needed it. Kris is a Creator, a Necromancer class, born with the ability to talk/see ghosts as well as re-animate a dead body. The re-animation turns the body into a vampire. Kris detests vampires. She refuses to embrace her destiny. Many of the ghosts that she encounters have been victims of vampires. Their misery and quest for vengence causes her to hunt those she is supposed to create. Kris has a busy life. Her mother ran out on her and her sister, Torra, when Kris turned eighteen. Kris has been working to take care of her and her sister as well as trying to extinguish as many vampires as she can. Torra is kidnapped from the Center for Necromancers. The Center has been trying to recruit Kris for years and she has always declined. Counsil member Rush advises her of the situation. Rush is determined to help her even though the kidnapper said no Center involvement. Forced together, Rush and Kris begin to devleop feelings for one another. Through each step of her journey, Kris is getting a crash course about the history of Necromancy as well has her hertiage. Things that she refused to learn in the past are things that she realizes that she needs more than ever to get her sister back. Can Kris come out of this ordeal unscathed? What if she can't meet the demands of the kidnapper? Does Rush fit into her life at all now that her world and her beliefs have been thrust under a microscope?

This is not your usual paranormal romance for it is a story about finding your real meaning in life and letting those that love you help you. A girl who always thought she was alone is finding out that sometimes having friends and possibly a boyfriend help is the best feeling ever to have in life. Gena D. Lutz is definitely one author I’m going to keep up with for her paranormal romance well is just sexy, fun to read and full of action.

Did I mention, Kris has a friendly resident ghost named Jude? (Your gonna love him) Kris's sister Torra is kidnapped, and to get her back she must do the one thing she has always refused to do, Create. This book has it all, secrets, adventure, fighting, love and a little bow chica bow bow. Character dynamics and world building is outstanding. I never once felt lost, it flows really well. I can't wait for the next book and I highly recommend this one.
