Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he's done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch - if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life.
For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake ...
Having rebuilt her life after medical 'treatment' that violated her mind and sought to stifle her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she'll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption.
But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy's fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness ...
The epic 13th installment of Singh's bestselling Psy-Changeling contemporary paranormal romance series (after Heart of Obsidian) focuses on the Psy race, now living mostly in harmony alongside Changelings and humans. After the fall of the Silence, a virulent infection takes hold of the Psynet, causing even the most serene to go on violent rampages. Ivy Jane, one of the last known empaths, is called upon by the feared enforcement branch of the race, the Arrows, in a last-ditch attempt to contain the threatening darkness. Vasic, her assigned Arrow and protector, must overcome years of tortuous conditioning to help Ivy stop the spread of madness, even as guilt over his past consumes him. The broad scope and urgency of the plot combines with sweetly subtle and intimate character interactions in a powerfully written story that stands well on its own. Thoughtful readers will appreciate this reminder of the horrors that even the best of intentions can cause.
