Publisher's Summary

Siren and soulmate to the King of Night, Callypso Lillis survived the clutches of Karnon, the mad king, and his twisted prison. But the nightmare isn't over. Callie wears the physical reminders of her time as a captive, and mounting evidence suggests the Thief of Souls is still out there.
When a fae celebration thrusts Callie and her mate, Desmond Flynn, into the Kingdom of Flora, they take their investigation with them. But under the bright lights and striking blooms of the realm, they find there are more immediate issues to deal with. No place is more uniquely savage than the great fae halls, and no amount of bargains can save Callie from royal intrigues.
Fairies play dangerous games. Some want love, some want vengeance, some want flesh, and some want things too unspeakable to utter. One thing is for sure: no one is who they appear to be. Not even Des, who only grows more enigmatic with every passing secret.
But the Kingdom of Flora has its own secrets, from bleeding trees to branded slaves and missing guards. Something is stirring in the land of all that grows, and if Callie isn't careful, it will claim everything and everyone she loves - and her along with it.

so freaking good

I have absolutely loved these books... so much so, that I binged them both and am now counting down to book 2.5 and book 3.
This is one of the best series I have read and undoubtedly the best paranormal/fantasy series.
It's a very fresh take on the world of the fae and I love that the main character is an unexpected magical creature rather than any of the many that appear in most fantasy books.
The author did an amazing job of developing each character and while many of them are not the best of people, I find them relatable and also enjoy their darkness. Cali is a strong female lead who can go from angel to demon in a moment and I love her for that. I'm definitely in love with Desmond's character even with all his faults and secrets... the "slippery bastard" never disappoints.
The narration is often where I struggle the most with audio books- a bad narrator can ruin a great book... luckily this was not the case. This narrator is new to me and I will be looking for other books she has done because I was that impressed with her.

Not as good as the first, but still a great read

I finished the first book in a week and same with this one. I really enjoyed the first book as well as this one. There were a lot of eventful scenes that happened in this book that were great fillers on Desmond's history and was definitely a lot more explicit scenes in this one than the first that I became to grow tired of since it was practically the same thing every time. (My only complaint) but nonetheless, overall, I really enjoyed this book and it tied well with the first book. Laura Thalassa really knows how to compose a storyline with events that glow nicely. Can't wait until the next book comes out on Audible.
