I loved this story and the characters. It was a fantastic addition to Jeana E. Mann already impressive story telling. After reading The Exiled Prince trilogy and The Rebel Queen duet I was so interested in Nicky’s character, so when I saw that he was getting his own book I was so excited!
His character was ruthless! I knew that from his previous appearances in the above-mentioned books, but it definitely shone in this book and you know what, I bloody loved it!! He was unapologetic about his nature and after sacrificing so much for his family, I don’t blame him. But you also saw a side to him that he never been explored. His soft, loving nature, while buried deep was there and it was so attractive to see!
Thank god for Calliope. She is one tough cookie, she’d have to be to win Nicky’s heart. She is a woman who rather than accepting her life for what it was, she has made decisions, some that are questionable but have changed her life for the better.
Together these characters are flawed but as couple they complement and strengthen each other for the better. Their journey wasn’t smooth sailing, but they have forged a connection that can not be broken.
I was thoroughly surprised at the direction in which this story went but I am glad. It kept me on my toes and always connected to what was happening. It was a fantastic read and I would recommend this book to everyone.
