Blurb: Ever since their scorching affair ended years ago, Julian, the Nightkind King, and Melisande, daughter of the Light Fae Queen, have tried to put the past behind them—and distance between them. But when a war breaks out between Julian and Justine, a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind council, they find themselves thrown together under treacherous circumstances…
Kidnapped as leverage against Julian, Melly is convinced that her former lover won’t be rushing to her rescue. But when Julian gives himself up to save her, they both end up Justine’s captives. Armed only with their wits and their anger, Melly and Julian must work together to escape. But will they be able to ignore their complicated history, or will the fiery passion that once burned them blaze again?
Review: I'm very fond of this series... I like that it seems when you meet someone in a story they can appear to be a bad guy. But when you get to know then in their own story you start to understand why they did some of the things they did.
When we meet Julian he was trying to kill his maker. But in this story after they talk about it, he felt he had no choice because she had broken promises that world keep the nightkind domain safe. Which she demanded he do.
20 years ago Julian meet the love of his life and he was the happiest he had ever been for 3 short months until he recieves a package with pictures of Melly having sex with someone else. Julian did everything he could to prove the pictures fake. But they were real. So he broke up with Melly cold heartily.
Melly bitter and hurt that Julian wouldn't believe her, didn't try to fight for them when she was accused of being a cheater. Now 20 years later she finds herself kidnapped by Julian's enemies and her only hope is that Julian cares enough about her to come to her rescue. She is also armed with the info that it was her twin sister that had pretended to be her in the pictures.
