To save her, he’ll sacrifice everything.
Born a dream reaper, Steele Ezo, a powerful half dragon, half human, is struggling to find his place in the Drakon hierarchy. He is ready to accept his fate until he realizes the next victim on the Reaper’s hit list is the sexy thief who’s caught his eye.
She’s supposed to die. He’s forbidden to stop it. But their inexplicable connection makes it impossible to step aside.
Abandoned by her family and abused by local enforcers, Ravyn Walsh lives life on her own terms. She’s created an underground sanctuary for the oppressed citizens of Burgess, and she needs funds to keep it running. When a lucrative job—stealing an ancient dagger—lands in her lap, she doesn’t hesitate, not even when a smoldering tattooed stranger attempts to stop her.
A dagger that can raise the dead is a powerful tool—one that could change the course of history. As they fight to keep the dagger out of the wrong hands, Ravyn will be forced to embrace the truth of her heritage, while Steele will find himself torn between saving a life that isn’t meant to be saved and denouncing the power he was born to wield.
You’ve got fastpaced and you’ve got too fast… Maybe it was because I didn’t realize this book was the second part of a series, or maybe A.C. Arthur thought we could keep up without further ado. So, maybe I’m just getting too old for dragon shifters (iek, did I just say that out loud???) or A.C. Arthur should give some more pointers at the beginning of the story.
At first I didn’t totally understand Steele’s profession: what is a Dream Reaper slash Drakon? And then I didn’t understand the enforcers who where threatening Ravyn. So the story kept getting more confusing at first. And also because I didn’t know about the Legion Security Company it was hard to understand why Theo and the others got all riled up.
Halfway through the story things started to make sense. But you have to get through the first part first. So, hang in there and enjoy the ride. But maybe read Awaken The Dragon first. Three out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
