This is by far my favorite book in the Immortals After Dark series. I have read it so many times and honestly it just keeps getting better. It is also one of my go-to books when I really want to just have a familiar read and know that it will end up well. If you haven’t read this book before you need to know that this book is about Uilliam MacRieve right after he was in the Order’s prison. Which would mess up anybody but it had some serious after effects on him. Not that he didn’t have some issues before then like his problem with the succubae species. Now all he wants is to end his existence until he finds out there is a way to get revenge on the leader of the Order Commander Webb by taking his only daughter. This would be done through an auction set up by the House of Witches. Only not the witches that were trustworthy to the clan. New witches. It is on this path of revenge that the discovers that the daughter of his enemy is in fact his mate. Things seems like they will be coming up roses for him until Chloe transitions from mortal to immortal and her species is succubae.
Honestly, the 180 that MacRieve took in regards to Chloe was enough to make your head spin. He was great and then he was a monster. Chloe was just trying to survive in an unknown world and her one ally turned out to be enemy number one. He was also acting like she was his cross to bear and she was not about that. I loved Chloe’s take no shit attitude and how she fought back against each conception of what was supposed to be her nature. She didn’t change just what she needed for food did. Only it soon became necessary for her to actually have sex in order to survive and the last person she wanted to use for that was MacRieve. There were so many heart wrenching moments in this one. He almost killed his mate because of his fucked up head and heart. And the way he treated her was awful. This is not what you have come to expect from the other werewolve books. This book will give you all the feels. I know what is going to happen and I still have all the feels for this book. So don’t miss out on it.
