4 stars – It was really good

Noreen, a member of the Others, is horrified when she realizes the truth about their plan. She decides that the only way to stop it is to tell the Dragon kings and hope they don’t kill her. What she doesn’t expect is to fall in love with a King. Caine just wants any information he can get about the Other plan for the Kings but the longer he is with Noreen the more he wants her. But can he trust her?

Wow, so much happened in this book and I cannot wait to read the next one. I was a little apprehensive at the beginning of this book and wasn’t sure I would like where the story was going but dang was it good. I just got sucked in with every passing page and couldn’t put it down. 

Noreen betrays the Others to tell the kings the truth but never expects to fall for Caine. Noreen is a Dark Fae but doesn’t kill ruthlessly like most of her kind. She has her own code and knows not to do true evil. With the help of the Kings and Reapers she finally learns the truth about her past and the Others. She was so strong, even though she wasn’t a warrior. She stepped up when she knew she was the only one who could possibly help turn the tide against the Others. I really liked her and hope we see more of her in the future. I especially want to see her and Rhi become friends. 

This was a great enemies-to-lovers romance. Caine and Noreen had an instant attraction that was filled with a lot of emotions.  Caine gives Noreen the truth of her past and helps her work through the pain of it. I love how supportive Caine is of Noreen. He doesn’t hold the fact she is a Dark Fae against her. He sees the truth of her and stands up to the other Kings because of that. 

Like I said earlier, a lot happens in this book. We have love, betrayal, the return of an enemy, new revelations about the past, and the breakdown of a leader. It is so much but all so good. I really can’t wait to get my hands on the next book, which might be the last, because I know it is going to be mind blowing and amazing.
