Winged monsters have been seen in the skies, and a pestilence follows in their wake, threatening the very survival of mankind. Only the crew of the Blood Hunterknows where they come from, and only one man has the power to send them back—Thorne, a human/dragon hybrid in possession of mental powers beyond comprehension.
Candace Decker doesn’t need anyone to look after her—she’s a badass werewolf more than capable of protecting herself and those she loves. All the same, she’s always been drawn to Thorne’s strength. In an uncertain world, he’s the one man who makes her feel safe. And what Candy wants, she usually gets.
But while Candy is tenacious, Thorne’s willpower has been honed over ten thousand years. He might want her, but the last thing he needs is an infatuation with a young, impetuous werewolf. Candy makes him lose control, and that could have disastrous consequences.
As the threat escalates and they become separated by time and space, Candy must find a way back to him, because while Thorne alone has the power to defeat the dragons, only together can they finally bring peace to the universe.
How did I not know about this series?! After blowing through this book in one sitting, I was yearning for more. And to find out that this was the 6th in a series, get it together, Malia!
I can't say that I've quite read a book like this one, we got a mix of paranormal/fantasy with sci-fi and you know what, I actually like that combo. Once I was a few pages in, I went and bought the rest of the series because even though you can (kind of) read this as a standalone, you'll have a much better understanding with the previous books, read. That's just my assumption, but I'm sure I'm right about that one. I don't even know how I'm writing this review without reading the previous books, it seems nearly impossible, but I'll do my best.
Thorne, what a man/dragon you are! I'm still trying to grasp the idea of his abilities, but they're definitely way out there. I kind of feel bad for the guy, he's always caught up in his thoughts and just about everyone else's! It probably has him biting at the bit. I have no idea what Thorne is like in the other books, but I was definitely hooked on his character as the story went on. He definitely needed to get off of his high and mighty chair and GIVE IN.
Candy, you go, girl! She's your typical badass and stubborn at best! She's all action this one and doesn't quite think before she does. And that tends to get her into some pretty bad spots. Plus she's a werewolf, there's no messing with them! Throughout the story, her mission is vengeance among those who have betrayed her parents.
Throughout this book, I just wanted the both of them to give in! However, they held off for so long that it just made it much more amazing. Thorne is what I call a sponge, absorbing everyone's problems and making it his own. It's a constant push and pull between Thorne and Candy. But it's inevitable what they both want and not even time can dim their passion for each other.
Once I get through the rest of the books, I'll be revising this review because I'm pretty sure I'll have different things to say about these two.
Nina, I'm a fan and can't wait to dive into this series!
