Elijah is the warrior captain. He is a master of all weapons and skilled at bringing down his enemies. Until he is ambushed by the necromancers and left for dead. Siena, the Lycanthrope Queen, saves Elijah’s life and nurses him back to health and starts to fall for him with each passing day.
After being disappointed in the previous book’s relationship I was worried I would not enjoy this one. I am glad to say that did not happen. I really liked Elijah and Siena. Their relationship was emotional, intense, and steamy. They are from two completely different cultures and were once enemies so they have a lot of prejudice and anger to work through. I have liked Elijah from the start so I really enjoyed getting his perspective on things and watching him fall in love.
While I liked Siena I did get annoyed with her constant negativity towards the imprinting BUT I can also understand it because they are different species and have a different culture. Lycanthropes are not taught to accept imprinting and sharing thoughts because it isn’t part of their relationships so of course she is going to have difficulties with this part of their relationship.
I really enjoyed the progression of the storyline with this one. There is more fighting with the necromancers and the betrayer Ruth, which I really enjoyed because I love a good fight scene. Since this book focuses on the shifters we also learn a lot about the Lycanthrope culture which I found fascinating. I really hope we learn more about them in future books because I can’t get enough of them. I do hope we start to see more of the vampires soon though.
