Publisher's Summary

Ever since their scorching affair ended years ago, Julian, the Nightkind King, and Melisande, daughter of the Light Fae Queen, have tried to put the past behind them - and distance between them. But when a war breaks out between Julian and Justine, a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind council, they find themselves thrown together under treacherous circumstances....
Kidnapped as leverage against Julian, Melly is convinced that her former lover won't be rushing to her rescue. But when Julian gives himself up to save her, they both end up Justine's captives. Armed only with their wits and their anger, Melly and Julian must work together to escape. But will they be able to ignore their complicated history, or will the fiery passion that once burned them blaze again?

Elder Races Baby!!!

Man I love these books! Visiting the Elder Race world is so much fun, I adore the complex world Thea Harrison has created and really wish they came out more often!

In this book we have the Night Kind King Julian's story. We have only ever heard of the ruthless mean streaked Julian who doesn't care for anyone or anything...but how did he get that way? He is a vampire who has walked the earth for nearly 2000 years and he's tired of existing, the one brief glimpse of happiness he had was when he dated the Light Fae Princess Mellie for 3 months 20 years ago, but even that was ruined, he is a man who doesn't have anything to loose, or so he thought.

When the call comes from Mellie's mother that she needs Julian in LA right now for a crisis she won't discuss over the phone Julian's blood runs cold...not Mellie....not Mellie....but when his worse fears are confirmed and the kidnappers ask for him in exchange he has no choice but to try to save the only woman he has ever cared about.

*shiver*...this book had a really decent plot, nothing stale about it, Mrs. Harrison has opened up a new can of worms with this book. My only complaint would be that things wrapped up a bit too neatly for my tastes but it was still a great book full of humor and interesting characters. We didn't get to see much of the Weir in this book, but hopefully book 9 will send us back to those lovable characters.

Narration wonderful, as usual!

- NEW NAME "Say something about yourself!"

Series back on track.

I love this series and this book is so much better than the previous book. I actually liked the characters in this book, unlike the last book. Usually I'm not a fan of lovers gone awry and then get back together, but Thea managed this one without me ending up hating the characters. This is a nice blend of romance and action that the story just flew by, which usually is a sign of a good book. The only thing that bugged me was that Julian was supposedly able to tell if someone is lying, but never believed Mellie when she told him she didn't cheat on him and duh, I guess right away how it was done. But I guess there needs to be drama/angst from somewhere to make a book flow. I'm so glad Thea Harrison is back on track with this series, I'm hoping that Graden's book is next. Narrator is good, same one as the rest of the series and I enjoy her immensely.
