Oh Erion! When I first met you back in Eternal Kiss, I had no idea what a great hero you would make, but thanks to the end of Eternal Beast, I started this book more than ready for your story. Not only did the book deliver, but Erion is what really sold it for me.
As the story begins, our hero is desperate to recover his son, Ladd, who was stolen by the evil Cruen. Erion and his brother fled the twisted man who raised him and now Cruen is using the boy as leverage to draw Erion back into the fold. Instead, Erion kidnaps the women Cruen is betrothed to –and proposes a trade: her for Ladd.
Of course, when he abducted Hellen, Erion had no idea she was a powerful demon. Nor did he understand that her father was blackmailing her into the marriage. Despite the fact Hellen doesn’t want her intended, she is determined to marry him. Her sisters’ future depends on it. But when she goes into something like a sexual heat, she and Erion are unable to fight the growing attraction between them. From then on out, they are pulled between their personal desires and their need to protect the people they love.
Neither Erion nor Hellen has ever had anyone want or love them for who they are. One of my favorite parts of the book was watching them each feel love and acceptance for the first time. There is a great sexual tension between them, but even better for me was for each of them to find a home in the other. Both characters are noble and selfless, brave and loyal. It was impossible not to root for their HEA.
In the meantime, Synjon is back. He was the dear friend that Bronwyn was going to mate with in Lucian’s book. If you recall, Cruen was responsible for the death of his true love and he is on a mission to make the man pay. (Eternal Beauty gives us a look at what he’s been up to since we last saw him.) So he joins the Roman brothers and their mutore brethren to track him down. Poor Syn is just a shell of his former self, but Wright does a great job laying the foundation for his book.
I was really happy with how this story played out and was very satisfied with the ending. A must read for fans of the series.
