I fell in love with this different approach to the paranormal genre with the Scars; immortal warriors with enhanced sensory abilities intermingling with other races and creatures on Earth whilst trying to maintain the status quo with the Wraiths, politics and internal power struggles whilst fulfilling their oath of "to protect humanity from any darkness that walked in the shadows." All the while living unknown to the people they've sworn to protect.
Nashoda perfectly balances her introduction to this new series with a gripping plot from the first page with the human Danni facing a horrific ordeal at the hands of a devious, torturous male. She longs for her normal everyday life instead of the hell she's enduring... Minutes, hours, days all blur into one, she's teetering on giving into her abuser's demands but a fellow captive saves her by offering to take her place. This one act has serious consequences for the both of them that will change their lives as they've known them forever.
Two years in from her ordeal and Danni is a successful artist, but gone is the fierce, wild, carefree spirited woman she once was and in her place is a fearful and isolated female who has no recollection of her torture only flashbacks through triggers of smells, sounds and dreams of green eyed male with a Tiger tattoo that she paints obsessively and is desperate to know more on. Recently she's felt a presence around her that's made her feel safe, something she hasn't feel in two years, but what is this presence and what do they want?
Balen, who was held captive alongside Danni, is a loyal and protective Scar who fulfilled his duty to protect the human Danni, but by doing what he did he broke a sacred rule and now has to face the reality of his actions: "Two years I'd stayed away...I'd overpowered the toxic blood I'd consumed. Not that it mattered, according to our laws, I was to be killed." Before he returns he has to see Danni one last time and when he does their reacquaintance is life changing as their connection is all consuming and one that could cost them their lives. When faced with the truth of their connection and what needs to be done both their lives will change irrevocably and test how much their willing to fight for what they truly want.
This book's theme truly asks what lengths are you willing to go to do the right thing. Are you willing to sacrifice your life, happiness, beliefs and the future you want for something you truly believe in?? This is what Danni, Balen and other characters in the book have to make difficult decisions upon each with far reaching effects that ripple out beyond their own lives. As this isn't just a love story it's a full on action adventure as well, as the life of a Scar warrior is far from quiet and Balen's friends are characters you'll want to know more on, especially Kilter, he's one badass you can't help but like and Delara; that's one storyline I hope Nashoda gives us next as she's piqued my curiosity!!
As always Nashoda provides a wealth of depth and twists you don't see coming in her story lines and the internal battles Balen and Danni have against all that's going on around them; the reality of their situation and the bigger picture of what their involved in warring against their love for each other brought me to tears more than once with her ability to make me feel such a range of emotions with her beautifully powerful prose. Nashoda has always been one of my favourite authors for a long time and this book firmly places her as an amazing paranormal writer too!!
balen drank the vampires blood & betrayed his sisters whereabouts to free danni but now after 2 years of ridding his body of the vampire blood he wants to see her 1 more time before he turns himself over to his own people the scars who along with the wraiths that form the deaconry for punishment , most probably death.
couldnt put this book down , there is plenty action , tattoo's that come to life , great characters , really love kilter & xcan't wait for more from nashoda rose
Though it did feel like I missed reading a novella before this book as apparently there’s a lot of background relating to the actions Balen took to save Danny’s life . All in all , looking forward to reading the next one
The whole story of scars, Wraiths other realms what is there not to love?
Everyone has to read this book it's gripping it has you on the edge of your seat. Fantastic.
I can't wait for the next book now. I want to see how Kilter gets "the girl" out. I'm really hoping this will be the next book because I really want to read his story and I want to know what happens between Darla and Waleron. I want to read their story as well. This is an amazing story of fantasy this is Danni and Balen's story. A must read and recommend for everyone. Read Nashoda Rose she is my favourite author of the year!
I really can't wait for more in this series, supernatural meets romance I was hooked and I must warn you hot tattooed guys are a given in this book.
It was quite confusing to begin with, there was so much to take in. Once I got into it I couldn't put it down.
Looking forward to book 2 which is downloaded ready.
