A gift from the gods…
Veritas and Ian have finally defeated their worst enemy, but the power it took to pierce through to the netherworld has unexpected consequences. Soon, Veritas is forced to rely on the last person she trusts—a golden deity named Phanes, who seeks far more than a temporary alliance with the beautiful vampire.
Can unleash hell…
But an escape from the netherworld soon pits Veritas and Ian against supernatural beings seeking to rule over mortals once again. Now, they must rally friends and foes alike—if the vampire council doesn’t execute Veritas first. Plus, a wedge between Veritas and Ian threatens to destroy their love. Can they stand together against the unearthly powers about to be unleashed? Or does their love—and humanity—not stand a chance?
Every time I read a new book by this author I remember how much fun her characters are. Veritas and Ian are so darn awesome and just another memorable couple I hope we get to see more of in future books in this universe.
If I have one issue, it’s that toward the end I still wasn’t sure if that is the last installment in the Night Rebel series. The last 20% so much happens in preparation of the big showdown and the ending felt a little rushed and abrupt. However, the chemistry between both main characters remains strong and Ian always makes me laugh. He has this complex personality that leaves you a little dazed. With Veritas Jeanine Frost couldn’t have written up a better heroine for this bad boy. She is such a badass and so protective of her Ian that it sometimes seems reckless. So on that field they are definitely even.
No wonder I lost my mind on a regular basis when it came to Ian. Everything else could be replaced. He couldn’t.
With these books and the complex storyline it’s always a good idea to re-read the previous books before release. Unfortunately I didn’t have time for that this time but the author does a great job reminding you of key events so that I remembered most.
Well, it seems we need to say goodbye to this couple but I’m sure they’ll pop up again and we’ll get to enjoy Veritas and Ian’s hilarious banter. And can we please, pretty please have a series with Veritas’s half brother Ashael? He is such a charismatic demon and fits right in with his humor.
“Shut your bloody face hole!” Ian shouted.
“You should have shut yours!” my brother roared back. “But like a naughty toddler sticking everything into its mouth, you took the most dangerous relic ever and ate it!”
If you have read Jeaniene Frost before don’t hesitate to grab this series. I really loved it. If you haven’t go and catch up – Cat and Bones are just as awesome – and make your way through this world. You’ll have lots of fun and an awesome time.
He was my real home. He was also my deepest love, my wildest passion, my truest friend . . . he was everything I’d never dared to dream for, yet now had.
