*This is repost of my review since I reviewed it out of order.
I have been waiting for this book. I didn’t really know it at the time, but I was waiting for it. Each novel that brandy releases I fall in love with. She constantly draws me in and subsequently blows me away with her writing and characters. This is another novel that you don’t want to miss in this fantastic PNR series.
I’m not going to go TOO much into detail since this is the 5th book in the series and hopefully you are reading this review because you have read the previous novels. If you haven’t, you should go do that first. They are fantastic.
This story is Dacia and Preston’s. I know. You don’t have to say it. I am not a huge fan of Dacia. Or, I wasn’t before this novel. You never really know a character until you get into their head. You don’t know what happened to make them the way they are. Dacia is back in the lime light, and not in a good way. She is part of a plan far greater than she understands and the darkness, her father, has a need for her.
While this is all fine and dandy, Preston is doing all he can to put Dacia’s father away. He knows that Dacia is meant for him and he will do what he can to protect her, but still keep on his path to destroying her father’s plan.
Brandy always gives us a slight twisted story in the way that you never really know what is coming next. I have waited a LONG time for Preston to get his story and it was a treat to finally get to read it. You don’t want to miss this steamy new novel in the Denton world. It is a real page turner from the start.
Some scars run soul deep.
Preston finally knows what he wants, but it’s an uphill battle to win her confidence. Dacia has been hurt countless times, including by his own hand. Despite her accusations, he wants what’s best for her.
Dacia struggles with her inability to trust. Her mother has always been too wrapped up in her own life to pay attention. Her father only comes around when it benefits him. Dacia no longer believes she’ll ever come first.
Remus is a fugitive on Earth and in Faerie. His ungrateful daughter refuses to help, even when a mage nearly tracks him down. His best hope is pitting Dacia and Preston against each other.
Ultimately, Dacia must choose. Can Preston help mend her scarred heart? Or will her father’s corrupt plan spoil Dacia’s chance at happiness?
