In the newest Night Rebel novel, set in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress world, beautiful, daring vampire Veritas risks all to protect Ian…
Some promises are meant to be broken…
Veritas spent most of her life as a vampire Law Guardian. Now, she’s about to break every rule by secretly hunting down the dark souls that were freed in order to save Ian. But the risks are high. For if she gets caught, she could lose her job. And catching the sinister creatures might cost Veritas her own life.
Some vows are forever…
Ian’s memories might be fragmented, but this master vampire isn’t about to be left behind by the woman who entranced him, bound herself to him, and then disappeared. So what if demons, other Law Guardians, and dangerous, otherworldly forces stand against them? Come hell or high water, Ian intends to remind Veritas of the burning passion between them, because she is the only person seared on his mind—and his soul…
Frost's utterly enjoyable second Night Rebel novel (after Shades of Wicked) delivers all the sizzle, sass, and suspense that make this paranormal world such a thrill. Vampire Law Guardian Veritas has a secret plan to destroy Dagon, a demon who has wrought centuries of harm on the world and killed Veritas's husband, Ian. The dangerous mission could cost her her life, as well as her career, and Veritas is determined to go it alone. Ian, resurrected and then promptly abandoned by Veritas, can't understand why his wife is avoiding him. With few memories of their life before Dagon's attack, along with intriguing new powers he must learn to control, Ian dogs Veritas on her quest, desperately trying to get some answers from the woman he still adores. Amid fierce battles of wits, weapons, and magic, Frost highlights her characters' courage, growing self-acceptance, and unshakable love for one another. Clever exposition will help new readers pick up the plot quickly, and longtime devotees of Frost's rich paranormal world will delight in cameos by characters from past books across the Night Huntress universe. This pulse-quickening romance succeeds on every level.
