Book Blurb:

A curse that forbids her to love…A child that he must keep secret…An attack on the culture she holds dear…And a battle that could get them killed…

Single dad and professional poker player, Chance Landon, hates the world after his ex-wife is found dead in a cheap apartment in rural Idaho. On a lone-wolf crusade to find the killer, he instead learns that he is the father of a strange little girl who carries secrets that only a woman like his ex-wife can answer.

When his ex-wife’s killer learns about his daughter’s abilities and decides to come after the young girl, Chance enlists the help of the beautiful and deadly swan-shifting nymph, Harper Cygnini, who helps to teach him the truth of his daughter’s condition. Chance soon realizes that he alone can’t save his daughter from the sadistic killer and he finds himself in a battle between his head and his heart. Will Chance gamble on a future that involves falling in love—which may well cost him his life—or is that one bet his is unwilling to take?

My Review:

This is my favourite Nymphs story yet. There are so many different elements to it that you cannot help but become enmeshed in the in depth story that Winters presents to us. She takes her writing to an entirely new level yet maintains the same consistently well written style that we’ve come to know and love.

Winters’ descriptions paint a very vivid picture of a world that you both want to live in and want to avoid. This amazing world is so riddled with tragedy that you can’t help but want to be there, especially when you can picture yourself walking alongside the characters. Winters also plays with emotions to draw the reader in and to highlight specific elements and events.

I love the way that Winters develops her characters in this novel. Each one of them is individually developed to provide insights into their lives and their personality. They contrast and complement each other in very unique ways. Winters doesn’t just give us a pair of main characters, but rather a family, however atypical, to carry the story forward. I also appreciate the fact that when the author brings up characters from previous novels she jogs your memory as to who they were. There isn’t a full development, both because we’ve met them before and they play minor roles in this particular tale, but she does make sure that you can easily remember who they are.

Overall I would fully recommend this novel (and the series as a whole) to anyone who enjoys the paranormal and some romance. Winters’ unique take on a little written on sect of the paranormal is quite easy to find yourself lost in and is a brilliant way to spend a few hours.
