Clio would love nothing more than to go home. But as the illegitimate daughter of the nymph king, she’s stuck in the human world, exiled until she can earn a place in the royal family. Then her half-bother offers her a chance to prove herself. All she has to do is acquire some magic … by stealing it from the most dangerous spell weavers in the Underworld.
Lyre prefers to go unnoticed, which is a tricky objective for an incubus. He can’t hide his looks or his coveted spell weaving skills, but he’s learned to mask his true intentions. As an unwilling pawn of the tyrannical Hades family, he stays alive by keeping one step ahead of his masters.
Now he’s been assigned to watch over a visitor from the Overworld—one who’s definitely hiding something. And with her unholy talent for triggering chaos and catastrophe, his job just keeps getting more perilous. Clearly, she’ll never survive this world.
The thing is, he’s no longer sure he can survive it either.
A fascinating fantasy adventure that whisks the reader into a world they never knew they were missing before. The characters, the plot and the intrigue made this book simply addicting.
Clio is a main character that engages the reader and makes you want to follow her through this journey she is taking from her world to Earth and to the Underworld. She is a flawed character and that is what I found the most appealing about Clio. She is not poised, put-together and perfect, there is substance there that can be played with. Lyre was a fabulous character that off-set Clio perfectly and the concept of opposites attract (Overworld and Underworld) really play in here. I have one word to describe Lyre, smoking.
With Greek Mythology and darkly sexy moments this was a book that had me in his grasp and just wouldn’t let go. As a fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon I am definitely going to delve into more of Annette Marie’s writing. I am so happy I have found this author.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Annette Marie is the author of the Amazon best-selling Steel & Stone series, which includes Goodreads Choice Award nominee Yield the Night, and fantasy trilogy Red Winter. Her first love is fantasy, but fast- paced urban fantasy and tantalizing forbidden romances are her guilty pleasures. She lives in the frozen winter wasteland of Alberta, Canada (okay, it’s not quite that bad) with her comparatively sensible husband and their furry minion of darkness—sorry, cat—Caesar. When not writing, she can be found elbow-deep in one art project or another while blissfully ignoring all adult responsibilities.
