Narration Type: Solo Narration
The Hero: Crew – works for the Serenity police department, an all wolf shifter department that protects humans against the demon Khain. There was nothing Crew wanted more than his one true mate, but Khain had promised that when Crew found her and fell in love, he would take her from Crew and kill her. Crew knew this was his fate as he was a gifted seer who had connected his mind to Khain’s when he was just thirteen years old.
The heroine: Dahlia – she first appeared in Dragon’s Heat when she helped free the cats from the spiders, since she works for the ASPCA. Dahlia dreamed of her own death over and over. She dreamed of herself in a whole different world each night when she went to sleep, and thought she was going crazy at times. Yet she somehow knew that she would die in the real world very soon. She knew that this winter would be her last.
The Story: Since Crew first sent his consciousness into Khain’s he has been a tortured soul. Khain killed Crew’s father and had proven to Crew that Khain had left a bit of himself inside of Crew and could use that to his advantage. Crew was determined to get that bit of Khain out of his head though every time he tried he was hit with intense pain.
This was a very different type of story than any I have read before. Both Crew and Dahlia went to another world when they slept, one where the town of Serenity was called Tranquility and Khain didn’t exist, neither did Ren who in the real world was the god that created the shiften. Crew and Dahlia first meet at a rut in their dreamworlds.
Like the previous two books this one was narrated in Solo narration by Michael Pauley. He seems to be getting better as the series goes on. He is doing better at multiple voices and isn’t as monotone as he was in the first few books. He is showing more emotion in his voice. I liked this story and the multiverse they travelled through. It was very interesting.
