Publisher's Summary

Recovering from a shooting, LAPD witch consultant Sophie Ross leaves her job and travels to the UK to search for answers about her childhood. When she encounters a Daoine Sidhe knight of the Dark Court, she becomes entangled in an ancient hatred between two arcane forces.
Barred from his homeland along with his surviving brother knights, Nikolas Sevigny is embroiled in a conflict that threatens everything he holds dear. Only by uniting his people's resources can they hope to prevail against Isabeau, the deadly Queen of the Light Court. He will do anything and use anyone to return home to Lyonesse.
When Nikolas encounters Sophie, he sees a tool to be used. The insouciant witch might be the key to unlocking every passageway that has been barred to the knights of the Dark Court, even as a fascination for her takes root in what's left of his soul.
Sophie has no intention of becoming anyone's pawn, yet the fierce Nikolas is so compelling, she can't deny the temptation that endangers her guarded heart.
As magic threatens Lyonesse, Queen Isabeau unleashes her merciless hounds, and Nikolas and Sophie become embroiled in a race for survival. Meanwhile, the passion that ignites between them burns too hot to be denied and quickly turns into obsession.
Thank goodness they both know better than to fall in love....

Just OK..

At 80% I was wondering if I’d ever like Sophie! She called Nikolas “A-hole” 34 times during this book. It was a little funny at first but after about 15 times it got completely ridiculous. AND she was such a smart-aleck. She just refused to listen to him when he was only telling her not to do something that could get her killed, I couldn't understand why Nik didn't just dump her. I can’t stand that “I can take care of myself” attitude that authors give the heroines, no matter how many times it makes her TSTL. I loved Nikolas’s character but I really couldn’t like Sophie. She was part Djinn but she wasn’t really magical. She could read runes, which she did once and cast spells but a little more magic from her might have made her bearable. She was the one who was the A-hole all the way through the book. I like snarky but I don’t like heroines who are simply b**ches through the whole story.

If it hadn't been for Nik and his men, Gawain, Braden, Cael, Gareth, Rhys, Thorne, Ashe and Rowen I doubt I would have finished this book. I liked Sophie up until she met Nik, then I stopped caring anything about her at all.

There are 2 or 3 explicit sex scenes and the F-bomb was used 70 times.

I’m going to assume there will be 6 or more other books in this series, to hunt down Morgan since he got away in the last of this book. But I probably won’t read them. I did read Dragon Bound in 2013 and I absolutely loved it but I stopped there because the rest of the books are too expensive. I mean, really, the second book Storm’s Heart from 2011 is $9.00. There are too many other great books out there for less than half that amount so I’m sure this new part of the series will be priced the same.

As to the narration: Sophie Eastlake is a good narrator, as far as voices go, but she really is terrible at reading with any kind of emotions. She doesn’t laugh or cry or whisper or anything that would make her the perfect female narrator.

Loved it!

I wanted to title this review "Nope!" but was afraid to confuse people. What a fun book! Sophie and Nik are two of the most fun characters I've read in awhile and like all of Harrison's books, this one had sexy heat to spare! The story was a nice spin on the existing Elder races world, the side characters were fabulous, and I just want to go back and reread because it would feel like a warm snuggly blanket.

As always, Sophie Eastlake does a brilliant job with the narration. She does men's voices especially well--Nik was super sexy--and she's got great timing.

Definitely recommend!
