ABOUT: If she believed in destiny, she would believe they were meant for each other.
But that fire was put out long ago. . .

Living among the Dragon Kings, Cain has spent lifetimes learning to distrust both mortals and Fae. He is a warrior born—and every instinct demands that he fight to keep his own kind safe. But when a fringe member of the Dark Fae contacts the Kings with an urgent warning, Cain is torn for the first time. How can he trust this beautiful creature when resisting his primal attraction to her is battle enough?

Noreen is horrified by what her kind and the malevolent Others are planning for the Dragon Kings. Dark Fae or not, there are lines she will not cross—even if it means risking her life. But she never imagined that she would risk her heart until she meets Cain. She wants him with a soul-deep desire that frightens her…and endangers them both. Is saying goodbye to everything Noreen has ever known worth a love that will span time and realms?


My Review: Another intense, fiery paranormal romance by Donna Grant!

Noreen and Cain’s attraction to each other is probably the most passionate and heartbreaking I’ve seen in this series. The story became more enticing as their relationship grew, both risking a lot for the greater good. Of course, there was a catch that came at an almost irreparable cost.

It took me a while to get fully invested in what was happening because there was too much telling by characters instead of doing. What is learned is all potential critical information but I wish it had been given differently.

The plot twist got me! I expected but was wonderfully unprepared for its impact on the characters and the threat of The Others as a whole. Then things spiraled into action-packed chaos.

My heart goes out to Noreen, Rhi and Constantine! I love them all so much!

The ending was satisfying enough. I think it’s fitting that the last book, Inferno, be Con’s. The long awaited battle that has been millenniums in the making is about to end. I’m so anxious for what will happen. Things will never be the same but I know it’s going to be epic!
