A lycae (werewolf) tortured for for a very long time breaks free only to find the mate he smells near. Now with a mate that is all wrong for him, one of his enemy no less, he must convince her to stay with him. Emma starts out a timid half vampire/half Valkyrie, and soon grows into her own skin as her love grows for her mate.
I started this book like most others, expecting it to be just alright, I would read it and then put it on the shelf and forget about it. Nope, didn't happen. After the first chapter I was so hooked I skipped dinner and continued reading in one straight shot all the way through. There is so much going on in this book, but it is amazing. It has a sweet new twist on the whole mythological creature genre. It also has a bit of the Carpathian feel with the bonding and mating, but that's ok...it wasn't the same at all. It was a wonderful book...oh, and so freaking hot there is practically steam coming off the pages.
