The Hero: Dante – a Fae and an assassin. He has a mission to assassinate the new leader of Moscow and bring about the future his people mapped out for the upcoming generations of Fae.
The heroine(s): Gia – human and the bodyguard to Amara, the Fae female who is taking over as leader of Moscow who is about to take “the pledge” to the people. The leader has renounced ties to her own clan for their callous ways.
The Story: Gia and Dante meet in bar on the eve of the most important day of both of their lives. They have a romantic encounter in the restroom of the bar. Both of them have plans and know that they have to take care of business, but neither want to leave the other and sense a connection between each other.
Gia realizes that being with Dante is futile. He is the threat that she is fighting against. Though when she is injured by Dante, he takes a decision out of her hands when he has to mate with her in order to save her life. The intimate scenes were sizzling hot, but for me there were too many. I would have liked more of a story.
The narration was great. The book was written in dual POV and had dual narration which I like. It was done by Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott. Wen has a clear and intelligent sounding voice which worked for Gia since she is a bodyguard and Kai Kennicott has a deep sexy voice and when he reads the female lines, it doesn’t grate on my nerves like some male narrators.
Overall I liked the story and I plan to listen to more of this series. I like the Fae in this one. They have a great package, fun powers, and they aren’t the standard Legolas-like Fae with long blonde hair and pointy ears. They are alpha’s with vampire teeth and they do have pointy ears, but only when aroused.
