Demon King Noah has spent the last six months struggling to deal with recurring dreams of a beautiful woman. It is slowly driving him insane. He goes to Corrine to find out who the woman is and where to find her. What he doesn’t expect is to rescue a tough woman who is terrified of commitment.
I have mixed feelings about this book. First I have loved Noah from the beginning and so I was happy to finally be reading his book. Noah has been struggling more and more with every passing year, especially since his sister left his house. Even though he has connected with his mate through dreams he still waits six months before trying to find her because he knows she has a hidden fear of relationships. I loved how caring and supportive Noah is and has been throughout this series. So seeing him doubt himself throughout this book was very sad but it makes me love him even more.
My issues are mostly with Kestra. I love a strong independent woman but her emotional baggage got to be a little too much. Kestra is terrified of commitment and relationships because of her past and that makes her frequently push Noah away. I was fine with her pushing him away at first but when it just kept happening any time there was progression in their relationship I started to get annoyed by her. I hope she gets better in future books.
We didn’t have any battles with Ruth in this one but we still have rogue vampires on the loose. I enjoyed the progression of the overall story and how the enemies seem to be getting smarter. I really enjoy the progression of the Nightwalkers coming together against their enemies and the breaking down cultural barriers between them.
Overall, a good addition to the overall story and I look forward to the next book.
