I purchased this book.

GAH!!  I finished book 2 and legit started to read book 3.   I was so excited for Seth story.  He is super broody and grumpy but after hearing about his creation….poor dude.  To carry around the memories of all the people you drink from AND you are 1,000 years old.  UHM Hard Pass!!!  T say I understand his needs to “get out of is own head” is an understatement.  To say I GOT why he did the things he did to numb his brain, it totally understandable.  To say I felt bad for his fear of accepting a mate and growing to care and love her not knowing if he would become horrible monster…..again I get.  The dudes been through A LOT!!!

Katie is a human caught in an immortal world…or is she.  The story of Katie and her “family” was interesting.  I loved seeing her struggle with all the “NEW” parts of her but also with this whole “Mating” business.  To be a successful, independent women who now has this grumpy man pushing you away but also needing him in your life is a hard pill to swallow.  There were times the story kinda drug on because the fighting and the pushing away between the two characters started to make me metal but once they FINALLY give in and accepted it 110% all is right with the world.

I enjoyed this story and the build up for the next few books…Baal is going to be a hoot, Aiyden made me GASP a bit when we finally get confirmation on his mate, and do I dare think Gwen has a love interest???

I am curious about the actual story behind the Phoenix rising because he seems like WHEN he wakes up, things are going to be changing and for the better??!!!
