Publisher's Summary

For Beluviel, consort to the Elven High Lord, and Graydon, gryphon and First Sentinel of the Wyr, even the slightest desire for each other is forbidden. But 200 years ago, after a desperate play to save Beluviel's stepson left them indebted to the cruel Djinn Malphas, they found their fates inexorably linked together - and the hunger between them growing too strong to ignore....
Two centuries later, with their debt to Malphas coming due, Beluviel and Graydon realize that if they are to stand any chance of saving their souls, they must once again work together - this time more closely than ever before. But every moment they spend with each other brings them nearer to losing something even more vital - their hearts.

For 200 years the doomed lovers pinned for each other.... not because it was anything either of them did, no, it was the greed and twisted actions of a Djinn. Graydon selflessly helped Beluviel out in trying to find her wayward gambling Stepson and, along the way, they became very close and even managed one beautiful night of passion where they made plans as well as made love. But their joy was heartbreakingly and swiftly snatched away from them by the all powerful and manipulative Djinn and the actions of Beluviel's selfish Stepson who had regretfully made a horrific bargain with the Djinn that would tie their hands, lock their heart's up, bind them in an unspeakable bargain and eventually have far reaching deadly consequences.

Anyone who loves the Elder Races series, or are in awe of Thea Harrison's wonderful ability at worldbuilding that she does so well, won't think twice about getting this next slice of her paranormal action. There's so much to visualize.... the complexity surrounding the E.R. and their individual weird and wonderful realms, the characters and creatures that inhabit those realms and the deep brotherhood of Dragos' Sentinels. Then there's the doomed love story which is tender, romantic, dramatic and touching and is coupled with drama and a horrific fight scene as many come to Graydon and Beluviel's aid to try to rid their world of the malevolent Djinn.... but heartbreakingly not everyone will walk away from such a toxic encounter.

Dual POV's and it's great to have the same awesome narrator all the way through this series because Sophie Eastlake does a wonderful job with so many voices and, not only successfully brings each one to life, but manages to capture, express and inject such delightful personalities to them all.

Worth a credit? Well of course it's a YES silly!!!

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Its shocking..!

Any additional comments?

IT was good until almost to the end...but I didn't like where the story went with the sentinals!!..What was the author thinking..?! Aside from Dragos and Pia's story and Grace and Khalil, those are the only books I think worth reading over again..or as in audible worth listening to over again but the rest of the characters especially this book..well..I'm not sure I want to visit it again.
