Another exciting addition to an exciting series. Blake Strachan’s mother grew up with money but she fell in love and gave herself to the man she believed would always be there for her, unfortunately when Blake was born, he was gone and her family disowned her. Blake and his mother struggled to put food on the table and keep their tiny room warm and then at age eleven his mother died and he watched as her body was laid to rest. Now alone standing in the cemetery he comes face to face with a man named Finn Qualtrough revealing to him that he is a Cynn Cruor warrior and he has a new life waiting for him. That was in Edinburg, Scotland 1859 and now after centuries of being a Cynn Cruor Immortal, a vampire-werewolf-human hybrid he has left to go in search of his father and find answers. When his brethren discover what he is and who his father is there is no doubt they will turn against him.
Alone he returns to Edinburgh, the one place he thought he would never come back to. His life has led him back and his return will once again have a dramatic effect on his life. While hiding from the sun he finds himself in the Great Hall of Edinburg Castle where he comes face to face with Phoebe Ruth. There was an instant attraction and without so much as knowing each other’s name they find themselves locking lips and wanting to go further but Blake disappeared before her eyes leaving her wanting to reconnect with him but unable to know how. It was after she was attacked that Blake once again appeared and came to her rescue and once again disappeared.
Phoebe was living a very normal life until she met Blake and found out that there was more than just an attraction, they actually belonged to the same world and she would discover that Blake wasn’t the only one with secrets in their past. Blake’s search for answers and his father led to discoveries he never could have expected and his feelings for Phoebe grow but his secret makes it impossible for him to offer her a future.
The war between the Cynn cruor and the Scatha Cruor is still going strong and Blake and Phoebe have to find where they belong in this war will Blake stay with the Cynn Cruor, will he be accepted and if he goes back will he take Phoebe with him. This book like the others is filled with action, sex, violence and amazing characters and I did not read all the books in this series but that did not affect my enjoyment of every book I did read.
Sex, violence, betrayals, amazing characters happy moments and sad moments this book and series has it all.
