Aleatha Romig is a master of suspense and surprises. This new series is filled with intrigue, secrets and hidden motives. There is so much mystery and drama that you have to keep your eyes open so you don’t miss a second of it. The protagonists are interesting individuals. Laurel and Kader are in essence opposites: she is light and he is the shadows. She is optimistic about the world whereas he is pessimistic. Since their meeting, Laurel and Kader’s paths intertwine and become entangled so much so that it might be impossible to separate them. People around Laurel are keeping secrets and possibly Kader is the only one she can trust. But she doesn’t really know him. So how can she trust her life with him? It’s possible she might not have a choice when s*** hits the fan! The ending felt like a gut punch. All I could think was, what? What just happened? And then my second thought was, I need the next instalment right now! Aleatha Romig has this way of drawing in the reader and surprising us with her twists and turns. The intrigue and suspense is what makes her stories so enjoyable to read. All you can think about is the next page and what it will entail. I eagerly await the next story to see what happens to Laurel and Kader.
