Back Cover Blurb:

Black Knight, Falcon Kenwrec is powerful, relentless, and fiercely loyal, his only allegiance – to his king. But he is torn between duty and desire when the war between the vampire clans and the Red Order hunters escalates and the enemy captures the one woman he longs to claim as his own, Sonya Rebane, Queen of the Voidukas Clan. Falcon will risk everything to save her, even if it means forsaking his king.

After weeks of imprisonment, Sonya is stunned when the chivalrous knight that she has secretly loved from afar appears outside her cell. As they fight and struggle to elude their enemies, they must battle their overwhelming attraction for each other and their love that is forbidden.

As every perilous moment draws them closer together, every smoldering kiss drives them to the brink of a passionate destruction. Will they be able to resist temptation? Or will their love be their ruin?

My Review:

This novel is simultaneously emotional and action packed. Greene tells a brilliantly unique story that has left me reeling. I enjoyed the unique take on vampires and royalty. Greene develops not only her storyline, but the cultures that we encounter in detail while maintaining a fast, forward paced story that will steal your heart.

We’ve gotten to know Falcon quite well throughout the rest of this series, but here he really shines on his own. He goes from being the ‘underdog’ amongst his peers to being the best version of himself. Getting inside Falcon’s head was a real treat. Knowing how and why he does what he does makes him so much more than just a Black Knight following orders. Paired with his fantastically strong yet vulnerable queen, you have a winning pair. I also love the priestess. Her meddling is priceless. She just gives fate a little nudge in the right direction while being nothing but herself.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and am loving the series as a whole. I can’t wait to see what happens next! The hints about Gabriel have left me wondering.
