The darkness holds more than just secrets…
Marked for death, Sabine escaped from her home more than ten years ago.
But the Wild Hunt will never give up.
It should have been easy to stay hidden. All Sabine had to do was keep her head down, avoid telling anyone about her past, and above all else — not let her glamour drop.
Even the best-laid plans eventually fall apart.
When a charismatic stranger arrives in the city, Sabine finds herself unwittingly drawn to him and the power she can sense hidden within him. Keeping her distance is nearly impossible, especially after a life debt is called due and she’s tasked into helping steal a rare artifact.
In order to break the magical barriers protecting the item and save her companions, Sabine will be forced to drop her glamour and reveal her true identity.
Unfortunately, the Fae aren’t the only ones hunting her.
And the most dangerous monsters aren’t always confined to the dark.
This is a book full of magic, adventure and love. Mostly the love you feel for your friends, who become your family.
The book begins with the story of Sabine, a Fae descendant who has escaped from her home more than 10 years ago to save her life. Since then she has lived in Akros, one of the cities with the greatest diversity of races, protected by Dax, a demon that dominates much of the city’s commerce.
When Sabine falls into a trap, she’s helped by a strange ship captain who has just arrived in the city to do business with Dax. His name is Malek and the attraction between them is undeniable from the first moment they see each other.
Sabine realizes that Malek is not a human, but she doesn’t know what kind of creature he is, nor does she care.
But, should she care who Malek really is? Besides, why is Sabine running away? What is Malek really doing in Akros?
These and many other questions are not answered until beyond the middle of the book, but the surprising thing is that at no time I thought about stop reading it. The suspense catches you and it becomes a need to know the whole story.
The descriptions of the characters and places are very good and allow it to be easy to live the story you are reading.
As for the characters themselves, Sabine and Malek are amazing. As you get to know them you can see they are complex people, with a past that does not define who they are in the present. The others are also good characters, but we don’t get to know them that much, so they have less development, however, it’s easy to like most of them.
Sabine in particular is a wonderful character. She has been able to become a strong and brave woman, but she is also able to realize when she needs help.
I try to save the 5 stars for my favorite books ever and it’s almost impossible that I give them to a book 1 in a saga as there’s so much more left to know. This is the only reason I gave this book 4 stars, although it’s probably around 4.5.
For me it is totally recommendable, and I can’t wait to read the second part.
Can we take a second to appreciate the drawing before each chapter?
It’s too beautiful!
I really would like to say more about this book, but I feel anything else I could say would be a spoiler, so just go and grab your copy!
EDIT: First, this book deserves 5 stars, I have no idea what was I thinking. Second, I just saw this book trailer and it’s amazing! Had to share it.
Bye bye ?
