Book Description: With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha’s consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.
Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster.
With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare… and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.
Captivation: The mystery of both main characters in this book alone holds undivided attention, but adding in the addition of the plot and personalities of the supporting characters makes this book a fascinating and gripping.
Sizzle: Though this book isn’t my favorite of Singh’s sizzle, it does have a few spine-tingling moments.
Romance: The romance and historical back-stories for the main characters really makes this book. Jason and Mahiya are fascinating characters in their own rights, mixing them together and exploring the development of their romance is absolutely wonderful!
Enjoyment: I love this book. The books in this series are almost all on my top recommendations list, but this one holds a special place in my heart. I love the mystery of the characters, the suspense and plot mystery add up to just a really wonderful book. Powerful, emotional, and absolutely captivating.
Literacy: No major errors, a few minor editorial.
Overall, LOVE this book. I have and will recommend this book to paranormal romance fans. I keep this on my read again list along with my top-favorites.
