WOW!!! How have I not seen this book sooner? What an amazing ride.
Firstly A.R. Breck is an absolute magician with words, this story unfolded so beautifully, and her writing style completely immersed me in Raven and Caelian’s world, I couldn’t get enough. It is 100% unputdownable (it was extremely hard having guests over when all I wanted to do was kick them out so I could read).
The relationship between Caelian and Raven is NEXT LEVEL! Some may disagree but Caelian is up there with book boyfriend of the year for me – it’s something about that near-instant possession and “I’ll burn the world for you” mentality, or for Caelian maybe more of an “I’d rip everyone to pieces with my bare hands for you” … he is something else, and my god is it hot! He and Raven are certainly a match made in hell, and I can’t wait to see how they evolve together.
This series is unique, dark, twisted, sexy, and super gritty. If you are looking for a phenomenal dark romance with plenty of action, suspense, twists and turns and the most amazing character development then look no further. I don’t know how I’m going to wait for Book 2 - Deceitful Truths, I need to know what happens NOW!!
