A psychic gift…

Muriah La Deaux’s latest job requires her to locate an ancient codex detailing a prophecy of an immortal birth. But before she can deliver it, her client is brutally murdered. Now a man with chaos in his eyes wants the codex she’s hiding.

An immortal child…

Issa is one of the original Night Walkers, a proud protector of the mortal world. Now, when the survival of his entire race rests on protecting an unborn child, Issa is the only immortal strong enough to protect Muriah on a risky mission—locate the lost scrolls that will trap their foe—but his tenuous grasp on his sanity is slipping.

The ultimate sacrifice…

Muriah’s headstrong spirit awakens feelings in Issa that are best left buried. But as the battle between love and chaos ensues, sacrifices must be made.

My Review:

Intro Babble: I must begin the review by apologizing for its lateness. My computer died a sad death last night and had to be replaced by a newer sexier model. The computer also met it's demise when I was drafting this review so I apologize if the quality is a bit iffy.

This type of book is not normally my thing--it takes a really amazing book description or a recommendation from a friend for me even to pick up a paranormal. Paranormal romance is very hit or miss with me and I tend to be very picky with this genre in particular. But I found that I really did like this one.


Heroine: Muriah: I liked her. She was strong, capable and smart. She was also a very likable and engaging heroine. She was bookish as well which boosted her greatly in my esteem.

Hero: Issa-He came off as a bit broody. And oh boy do I like broody. But I loved him. He's the type of hero you want nice things to happen to because you think he deserves them not simply because he's pretty.

Chemistry: Normally when I read a paranormal romance, I end up feeling as if the paranormal element overwhelms the romance—that's part of the reason why I avoid most paranormal romance—but that wasn't the case here. The development of Muriah and Issa's romance was well paced and both characters were the perfect fit for each other.

Chemistry Rating: 

Ending Babble: I am kind of a rookie when it comes to paranormal romance so sometimes I feel overwhelmed when there are too many paranormal aspects in a book. That was kind of the case here. The Mayan gods, the vampires etc just jumbled up a bit. It didn't lessen my enjoyment of the romance but it took a little while to adjust.
