3 stars – I liked it

Locke has been waiting centuries to avenge the death of his mate’s death. What he doesn’t expect is to find that the woman he finds is beautiful, and she reveals the truth about Xuria that he never expects. 

I enjoyed Locke and Kyi’s story. They started off as enemies but their attraction quickly changed everything. Locke was a very aloof vampire at first but he does open up to Kyi eventually. His past was very sad and makes his reasons for being so standoffish with the world to be understandable. Kyi also had a tragic history with her mother being an evil sorceress. I felt sorry for her because she has had to isolate herself to protect others. These two had a lot of chemistry and were a great couple. 

Part of this book was also told from Levet, Inga, and Trey’s perspectives on their hunt for Xuria. I enjoyed seeing a different perspective but it also took away from Locke and Kyi relationship, which some people will not enjoy. I personally liked this different perspective because it gives us more of what is going on with the different parts of this vast world. I really hope we get a whole book about Olga soon because she has a beautiful heart and I really want to see her happy, especially after this book. 

Overall, this was a great addition to the series. This is a fascinating world filled with a wide variety of creatures and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next.
