Out of the Darkness is the second book in Jaime Rush's sexy new contemporary paranormal romance series. Rush, the author of A Perfect Darkness, tells the story of the Offspring, children of a mysterious experiment gone awry who have been blessed—and cursed—with unusual powers . . . and who are in terrible danger.

Since she was a kid, Jaime Rush devoured books on unexplained mysteries and psychic phenomena. She knew she would be published, marry a fabulous guy, and win a Toyota Supra. Missing the romance, relationship drama, and action of her favorite television shows—X-Files,Roswell, andHighlander—she created her own mix in the Offspring series...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LEFT IN THE DARKNESS OUT OF THE DARKNESS is the second book in the Offspring series which centers on a group of twenty-something’s who are the children of psychic parents that participated in a government experiment. These “offspring” have for the most part hidden their abilities and are only now discovering that others of their kind exist. Our heroine Zoë is a great character; interesting, wild looking and a tattoo artist who just happens to be able to move objects with her mind. However because Zoë has no control over her powers she’s shut off her emotions to remain a ‘closeted’ telekinetic and not be looked at like some sort of freak. The first part of this story is super exciting as Zoë’s search into her father’s past sees some scary, gun toting bad guys pursuing her as she takes off into the Florida Keys. Unfortunately as soon as Zoë is rescued by the sexy and mysterious motorcycle man (what happened to him?) and deposited at a modernized bomb shelter where she meets others of her kind, it fell apart for me and I struggled to finish the remainder of this book. Inside the shelter Zoë is introduced to several other “offspring” in particular Rand who is able to see into the future and likes what he sees with Zoë. Together the group learns to trust each other as they try to locate more of their kind, improve their powers and determine why “Dark Matter” wants them all dead. Unfortunately this book just didn’t do it for me although in fairness I did buy it on a whim without realizing that it was the second part of a series and I probably would have liked it a whole lot better had I first read A PERFECT DARKNESS and been able to understand the back story and secondary characters better. As it was I was bored with too many bland characters, silly made up slang words (in an attempt at youth and coolness) unnecessary trips out of the shelter to visit grandparents and a romance that took forever to get going. However all the other reviews I’ve seen have been positive so if you like your paranormal romance with a sci-fi edge, loads of action and some cool chase scenes then you may enjoy Jamie Rush’s unique world of offspring. Cheers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Oh Sequel-liciousness After finishing the first book "Touch of Darkness" I was so excited about the second book. I love the whole concept of these books and the idea that they are slowly meeting without knowing each other's back ground history is fun. My only issue with this is that after the first book some of the impact is gone. We learned that the Offsprings parents all died in a violent manner so finding out what Zoe father's did isn't as impacting as learning about Amy's. The characters of Zoe and Rand were hot and Rush built up the sexual tension over and over again. And definitely managed to toss these two into some interesting scenarios that allowed Rand to realize how much he cared about Zoe. I do hope that Rush gives us a bit more with the Offspring knocking down the bad guys. It seems for every inch they gain they end up a foot worse by the end of the book. Really hoping that we get more of Eric, cause despite him being trigger happy and volatile he's probably one of my favorite characters. And kudos for us getting some updates on Amy and Lucas would be great if with each book we still got updates on the previous couples. So, if you enjoyed the first book you'll enjoy this book even with the random made up lingo that seems to spew out of Rand's mouth.
