Sometimes, fairy tales go deadly. And destined love refuses to listen for the sound of one small heartbeat in the dark.
Jade Shen was born into privilege, wanting nothing with loving parents. Until tragedy struck. Raised by a bitter grandmother, Jade loses herself in studies and being groomed to take over her parent's tech firm worth millions—choices not her own. Death revisits and this time Jade is the target with her trust fund the prize. The losing side of the war against the secretive Grid seducing her guardian to fund the battles—the Devil and his demented son must not lose. But Envy is always on the path with Greed—Jade simply in the way as they merge. Death always has its own plans.
Tyrus DeMonte was abandoned at birth. Left to burn in the fires of Hell by his own father. Putting the past behind them and they now fight on the right side of the Grid. Determined to prove his worth, Tyrus takes whatever is given to him—son of a disowned Elite and fighter wanting to be so much more. He had no idea that a chance meeting with a young, sweet, innocent girl would teach him the one lesson that had cost him the most. Love. But unlike fairy tales, love doesn't always find a way. Not when Death cuts off the story before the once upon a time can start.

The introduction of Envy brought the story of the grid to a new level. The human girl Jade has not died to merge with Envy like the rest of the Shadow Keepers but they accepted each other just as much. Jade and Marcus/Death’s son Tyrus fell for each other and Envy protected him also. But danger came again in the form of Epsilon and this world just can’t ever stop its war. Great story and phenomenal characters. Can’t wait for more books!!
