The Nightwalkers have lived in the shadows of our world for centuries, gifted with abilities few humans can comprehend. For Noah, duty is all–until he meets the woman who is his destiny…

SHE WILL TAKE HIM BEYOND HIS WILDEST DREAMS.

As Demon King, Noah is dedicated to protecting his kind from their human and Nightwalker enemies. Yet for six months he has struggled with vivid dreams that threaten his very sanity. Every night he’s tormented by images of a woman both achingly real and tantalizingly beyond his grasp. And his bone-deep need leaves him no choice but to force her to leave the life she’s known and enter a world beyond her imagining…

Every day, Kestra risks her life in perilous missions that veer just shy of the law, but she instinctively knows that the imposingly sensual figure before her is a danger unlike any she’s ever faced. Kestra has sworn never to trust or need another man, but Noah’s lightest touch scorches her with fevered desire, branding her as his mate, blinding them both to the terrifying truth. For within the ranks of their own people lies an adversary growing in number and power. And nothing and no one will be safe again…
Desire awakens at night..

My Thoughts:

This was a long book and I find myself disturbed with the path this series has taken. For me the most important thing would be the couple and how they would deal with the passion and the situations this would lead them, but now it’s strange how the author pressed for the devil to find ways and destroy important places and attack again and again the most powerful.

 

I agree with that Noah should at least had tried to find his soul-mate, but knowing what would cause him and the path the destruction was leading him to, was a bit strange to see him forget about everything when he knew a way to save not only himself but Kestra also. I liked his presence and some choices he made on the previous books, but on this one, not the best.

 

Kestra was a bit strange since the start. I didn’t warm up to her and discovered that she could be better with another Nightwalker, because Noah needed a strong women but also someone that has a finesse too. And for me that’s not her. To make things go bum, anyone can do.

 

Not my favorite couple and a strange twist to the story line.

They are the Nightwalkers, mysterious beings who dwell in the shadows of our world, and Damien, the Vampire Prince, is among the most powerful of them all. But one woman will tempt him with a desire unlike anything he has known, and together they will face a terrifying and relentless foe…
HE’D NEVER LOVED. BUT SHE WAS IRRESISTIBLE.
As reigning Vampire Prince, Damien has tasted every pleasure the world has to offer–consorting with kings and queens and delighting in sensual adventure. Now, tired of such pursuits, he devotes his energies to protecting his people. The war between human necromancers and Nightwalkers has escalated, and when the enemy makes a daring move, kidnapping Syreena, a Lycanthrope Princess, Damien boldly follows. He succeeds in rescuing her, but is unprepared for the erotic longing her lush sensuality awakens in him.
Gifted with rare abilities, Syreena grew up in a cloistered setting and was forbidden to form attachments to others, yet the connection Damien feels with her is immediate, intoxicating, and impossible for either to resist. But claiming Syreena as his mate could have shattering repercussions for every Nightwalker–and leave their enemies more dangerous than ever before…
Temptation tastes sweetest at night.

My Thoughts:

Vampires can be really hot and dangerous but since I first read about Damien my thoughts were always about his humor. He’s fun and knows how to live and be happy about it. Of course he’s still their King so responsibilities and rules are part of life.
Syreena has know all about rules and duties, being a Princess for the Lycan made her life very boring while living with the monks, but now that her sister is the Queen, she can truly appreciate a little more freedom. After the Library was found things between the Nightwalkers became more easy and Syreena was sent to help the scholars. And that’s how the dangerous found her.
Damien was feeling some strange things for the Lycan Princess and after her found out she had been kidnapped his first thoughts were toward her safety.
I liked this couple and how these had to understand things together, plus discover some way to make people accept them. Syreena has wanted to find her mate for so long that Damien was a surprise and I wasn’t expecting this twist for the series, but they match really nice.

Quote:

“She had told him that she loved him. He had known that, but hearing it in the traditional phrase had affected him in new and blinding ways.
Ways that made him believe that he could do anything.
Anything she needed or wanted him to do.
Because her loving him meant so much more than him loving her.”
