They aren’t going to run. They’re going to kick some serious Warlock ass.
Vicious gargoyle attacks aren’t exactly something Kaye Allister deals with every day, but it’s nothing she can’t handle. So, why is this possessive dragon shifter insisting that she needs to go on the run with him if she wants to stay alive?
Kaye’s a skilled fae with an arsenal of magic at her disposal. She doesn’t need some arrogant shifter’s protection, especially one that refuses to take no for an answer.
But what if she’s wrong?
A murderous Warlock is on the rampage, and he will not give up. Evil is about to invade Kaye’s ordinary life, determined to bind her within its torturous grasp with monsters and mayhem around every corner.
The road to survival is marked with betrayal and deceit, some by the people she loves the most.
If she wants to survive, she must put her life in the hands of a cursed shifter—that is, if either of them make it through the night.
Kaye Allister is a psychologist who lives her life day-to-day like the New Yorker, Only she isn’t your average city dweller no she is one bad ass magical fae being. A fae who is in need of some quality time off from the blaring sounds and light of he city she has built a life for herself in. Not for forever but a weekend in the secluded surroundings of the Appalachians with her fellow fae sisters sounds like Heaven.
Little did she know she would meet a shifter who would change her life and everything she knows. She has no idea what she is in for when she spends the night with Darius. She is pretty sure she will never see Darius again until he shows up outside her door insisting she is in danger and he needs to protect her.
I found this book to be a great and unique mix of paranormal romance and urban fantasy. We have all you typical magic contenders such as fairies, witches and warlocks but we also see gargoyles and your not so typical shifters. The author manages to create a world that is both new and interesting but tried and true all at the same time- giving the paranormal lover more than enough to keep them invested in the book and lives of the characters,
The plot itself does start off a bit slow but that can be expected sometimes with the first book in a series as the author is building the world and characters and wants the reader to be fully immersed, but once the story picks up it really goes! You get all the action and romance you little heart yearns for and more.
Kaye the Faye (as Darius refers to own heroine) is not your typically skinny blonde and glittery fairy which honestly makes for her stand out to me. Not only is she fierce and curvy but intelligent being a psychologist. She does npt need some man to be her hero because she can stand on her own two feet but at the same time she isn’t perfect and has her own kinks and this is what makes her the perfect heroine for this story.
I really enjoyed this installment and have already purchased and added the next two books to my every growing TBR.
Rating- 4.5 out of 5 cupcakes – I would recommend this to any one who enjoys a good urban fantasy book filled with action and makes you think.
