Sharie Kohler continues her popular Moon Chaser series with a fantastical tale about a lycan and a demon witch who join forces to search for love and redemption.
In the dark world of the Moon Chasers, love and evil are separated by only a heartbeat as an undying lycan searches for the demon witch who cursed him.
For generations, the immortal Darius, doomed to roam the Earth as a lycan, has hunted the one responsible for his terrible fate. He is determined to exact revenge for the untold suffering Tresa has unleashed upon the world, but when the two finally come face-to-face, Darius discovers that she is not the purely evil creature he expected, but rather a tantalizing woman.
Determined to avoid causing further harm, Tresa has spent numberless centuries fleeing the demon who enslaved her. Tormented by the devastating mistakes of her past, she feels she has condemned herself to suffering. Certainly she does not deserve to find passion. . . . Yet it may be that only by becoming lovers will Darius and Tresa find a power that burns brighter than the dark forces arrayed against them, a love pure enough to at last bring them both the redemption that they crave.
In the sixth Moon Chasers paranormal (after 2011 s Night Falls on the Wicked), Kohler wastes no time revealing the source of the curse that dooms generations to be bloodthirsty werewolves. In 70 C.E., telekinetic witch Tresa took revenge on the lord who killed her family, pledging fealty to the demon Balthazar in return for immortality and a curse on the lord s heirs. Now the ancient lycan Darius hunts Tresa, seeking to break the curse. Instead of the evil witch he expects, he finds a haunted woman who longs to free herself. Balthazar s newest witch is a serial killer dubbed the Rose Petal Killer, whose murders Tresa envisions as they occur. The protagonists joining forces to stop the murders is predictable, but the identity of the killer is surprising, and readers not enthralled by Tresa and Darius making up for centuries of mental torment with hot sex may still be intrigued by the mystery.
