Back Cover Blurb:

The Guardians of Eternity are facing a final battle to save their world—but battles of the heart may be the most difficult to fight…

Cyn, the vampire clan chief of Ireland, is an unabashed hedonist whose beauty is surpassed only by his insatiable appetite for pleasure. It’s no wonder he’s furious when he’s transported from the magical land of the pureblooded feys to his desolate private lair—only to have his very existence thrown into a chaos that even he cannot charm his way out of…

Most women may be all but powerless against Cyn, but Fallon, a sharp-witted fairy princess, is less than beguiled by the silver-tongued vampire. She’s a serious soul with no time for the sort of games he plays—especially when they learn that someone is trying to close the veil that separates the dimensions. But seduction may prove the most powerful force of all, as attraction ignites between the unlikely pair even as worlds are colliding around them…

My Review:

Ivy has taken the world that she created throughout her series and has given it some fantastic room to swing with this one. The plot was well thought out and executed. Her descriptions and narrative brought this world to life in a larger than life, extremely vivid and Technicolor manner for me. Although the novel was unique and enjoyable, it was a case of it being a story that was hard for me to get into. Once I did, it was quite good. The further into the novel I got, the more and more enjoyable and engaging I found it.

Ivy has created some strong, larger than life characters that definitely do her story justice. I enjoyed getting to know them and felt that they carried the story forward well. Some of my favourite parts of the book included the interactions between the main characters.

This novel was well written with an intriguing plot. It was imaginatively unique and kept me coming back to find out what happened next, but didn’t hold my attention consistently throughout. I fully enjoyed reading this one and would definitely try other works by the same author.
