4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

Stephanie McGill was attacked and turned when she was a teenager. Unfortunately, she is unlike any other immortal. She can’t control her ability to read minds and she never gets any peace and quiet. Now thirteen years later, she is living a quiet life in the country. But once her new neighbor arrives everything changes.

Stephanie was originally introduced in book 11, The Immortal Hunter. She was kidnapped with her older sister and turned against her will. She has had no control over her ability to read minds from the beginning but she has new concerns about it now. Stephanie is a very interesting heroine. She has a unique ability that she is terrified of but she still uses it to help track rogues. I liked that she doesn’t let her fear hold her back. I also liked that she was a writer and wrote about her experiences, much like Lucern does (Single White Vampire). I just love the idea of a paranormal writing about their experiences and selling it to humans. 

Thorne is a very interesting character. I believe he was originally introduced in book 25, Immortal Unchained. He is a genetic experiment done by a mad man who is still at large. I really loved his dedication to his mother and aunt. He is willing to give up everything for them to have a few years of happiness. He was just a great and very sexy hero. 

Thorne and Stephanie have an instant attraction that all life mates have. I really enjoyed their relationship. It was emotional, captivating, and just really sweet at times. I also loved that this once took place almost completely at Stephanie’s house and it really focused on their relationship because of that. There were still action packed fights against rogues but this one definitely focused more on the couple. 

Overall, I really loved this one. I loved seeing Thorne find that he can have a normal life and find love. Also, I really loved his mother. I can’t believe this series is 34 books in and still growing.
