Clark and Adelaide think their lives can’t get any worse. Until they meet each other.
Adelaide — heiress to the wealthiest man in the Ceithren Empire — has felt a void since her sister’s death. Just as she’s resigned herself to the empty life her father chose for her, a relic from a world that shouldn’t exist plunges her into chaos.
Clark — son of the greatest terrorist the empire has ever known — is still reeling from his father’s death. Since then, his life has boiled down to two things: his brothers and his next mission. When his mission to bring back a mystical artifact goes awry, he’s forced to choose between getting the job done and saving the life of a spoiled socialite.
But Clark isn’t the only one after the artifact.
He and Adelaide must work together to survive… if only they can manage to avoid killing each other before their enemies have the chance.
|Wow! Can you say mind blown? That's my overall feeling about this fantastic book. The writing was indescribably delicious and the storyline could only have come from Robin's phenomenal imagination. I had a less that optimal response to the flashbacks before each chapter. Maybe just not as many in the future would be better. Just my opinion. But I just could not put the book down once I got going. Loved, Loved, LOVED Clark and Addie. Their adventures were a rollercoaster from start to finish and I could not get enough of them. I look forward to reading the next installment!|
I appreciate the author sending me a free copy of her book with no strings attached. I am voluntarily leaving my review and all opinions are my own.
