He does not trust her…
Lucan has one chance to save himself before the darkness he wields consumes him. The vampire would rather damn his soul to Hell, than mate his enemy’s sister. Fate hasn’t left him much choice however, because it prophesies Sabin to end the brutal war on humanity. The longer he waits, the further into the shadows he slips and the closer they all come to being destroyed.
She will betray him…
Sabin experiences daily torture ever since her brother locked her in his hellish dungeon. The only thing that keeps her sane, is the knowledge there is one vampire destined to save her. Even when Lucan rejects the idea they could ever become mated, she knows the fate of the world depends on them being together.
He is darkness; she is light, yet they need each other to survive. Evil is preparing to destroy Sabin, and with each passing second the enemy grows stronger. Time is running out and with the Phoenix God missing, Sabin cannot fulfill the prophesy. There may be only one sacrifice left to make.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I was so excited to get this book!! I have been a huge fan of this series and this couple was definitely one I was excited to read.
Sabin, I mean I felt horrible for her. Her family is made up of horrible people and she unfortunately was born with light who would destroy her brother so she has been held hostage for EVER until the day he would kill her for her powers. That’s gotta suck. Then to find out that despite this crap life the Gods give you a fated mate whooooooo hates you completely!!! SHUT. UP. That is even WORSE!!
Lucan is waiting for the day when his darkness will not be ale to be controlled. He is waiting of the day he will be killed when WHATS THAT…the Gods give him a mate…..WHAT!! ANNNND oh yeah he hates her with everything he has. Talk about toxic relationships from the jump!!
These two go through some STUFF!! I mean she is completely lost as to why he hates her and he is a hot mess of lust over a woman who will most likely kill him in his sleep. These two need some serious Dr. Phil counseling sessions but once they start to trust one another they feel like it one step forwards and 100 steps back. The book had so many twists and new plot loops I was like Hey GOOD ONE and OH SNAP THAT CAN’T END WELL!!
I am loving where the series is headed. I hope the King is next because dudes gotta figure out how to make his mate love him and stop trying to kill him already!!
