But despite their explosive connection, Julija rebels against what she sees as Isai’s intent to control her and rejects the bond that would prevent him from becoming a monster.
As their unfulfilled bond continues to call to them both, Julija and Isai aim to complete the task that brought them together. They are used to facing danger alone, but now the mage and the ancient warrior must learn how to rely on each other in order to stop a plot that threatens all Carpathians.…
Feehan expertly weaves an intoxicating blend of fantasy and sensuality in this exceptional and powerful 29th Carpathian paranormal (after Dark Sentinel). Honorable Carpathian warrior Isai Florea has searched for his lifemate for centuries, even locking himself in a monastery in the Carpathian Mountains to keep his heart pure until he could find her. Feisty mage Julija Brennan, on the run from her murderous family, is snuggled in a sleeping bag in the Sierra Mountains when Isai literally falls into her lap. Even as their crackling chemistry pulls them together, they realize they have a sacred mission to complete first: destroying an evil book of spells. Julija's family raised her to doubt herself, but Isai's steadfast love and support show Julija that she is powerful and that together, they can save the world. Feehan's gift for intricate worldbuilding is paired with pitch-perfect plotting to ensnare readers from the first page. Her many fans will devour this masterfully wrought tale, which is also an enticing entry point for new readers.
Starts off strong and keeps going through out the book, lots of action, drama, laughter and don’t forget the romance. Isai and Julija had a lot strikes against them and they found themselves, developing a relationship into something strong. Julija found with his help she is important and a strong person and worthy.
I love this series, each book better than the last.
This has been the best one in the series yet!!!!! I wanted to know how the meeting was going to go at the end but I’ll deal with the cliffhanger. 😏 I’m so looking forward to the next book!
Wow! Loved Isai and Julija's story. Lots of action. And I cheered when Julija's family got axed. Blue, Belle, and all the shadow cats were a wonderful addition to the Carpathian story. I'm hoping we get to see the cats in Elisabeta and Ferro's book.
