Dates Read: May 6, 2020
After a fateful mission to Hell to rescue his best friends stolen mate, Murder cannot stop thinking about the woman who keep him alive. Phrygia has been trapped in hell for centuries and is instantly attracted to Murder. She risks everything to free him and doesn’t expect to ever see her again. When Murder, Lore, and Enthrall come back to save her she expects the fierce attraction to still be there but its missing, for both of them. Now they both are struggling to understand what is going on between them.
I was excited when this book finally came out because after the last one I needed Murder and Lucitari’s story. But this was an unexpected story. After the reading the blurb I realized this was going to be a lot more than just Murder and Luci’s story, and was a little concerned. Which made me put this book off for a while because I wasn’t sure if I would like it. Once I really got into the story though, I really enjoyed it.
Murder goes back to hell to rescue Phrygia believing she is his mate, but after a few days he realizes that something is not right between them and that they don’t feel like mates. It just takes one look at their true mates to make them both realize that they are making a mistake and they need to figure out how to fix it. While dealing with this, they are also trying to track down a dark force in Whispers that followed them from hell.
I liked all of the characters and felt that both couples worked well together. Phrygia and Gaston were a surprising couple but I think they were cute together. I look forward to seeing both of these couple popups in future books.
I can’t wait for the next one because I really want to know what is going to happen next with Aubreigne.
