Ooh What A Fantastic Read. 5 Stars

Undeniable one of the best PNR books that really tugged on my heartstrings. By the end i was crying tears of both heartache and joy.

Zander and Kelana characters are so awesome you feel and understand both so clearly throughout.
I hurt more for Kelana in the beginning but towards the end Zander had my heart. Sigh
How powerful their love becomes at the most intense part was mind blowing and so pure.

Reading this book reminded me of first finding the first volumes of the Black Dagger Brotherhood books. Spellbinding characters and conflicts. Multi-layered story arcs providing a variety of levels of satisfaction.
One thing that really impressed me about reading this story is that I've read none of the previous books. Still, it was a seamless entry into this reality. The characters, not just the main one, are strong and committed. While they are supernatural, any reader can relate to the experiences and choices. While the journey of each covers darkness, they are deep with the kind of brightness that comes from the best of a character.
I will definitively be going back to read the first 2 stories. For a huge fan of "The Black Jewels" series by Ms. Bishop and the "Rai Kirah" series by Carol Berg, this setting and the deft hand applied are a big hit with me. And if you loved this series but don't know the others mentioned here, it's highly likely you will enjoy reading those as well.
Humanity is such a mix of pain and joy, damage & growth, my satisfaction increases when stories recognize and use those factors successfully. Enjoy!
