A gift from the gods…
Veritas and Ian have finally defeated their worst enemy, but the power it took to pierce through to the netherworld has unexpected consequences. Soon, Veritas is forced to rely on the last person she trusts – a golden deity named Phanes, who seeks far more than a temporary alliance with the beautiful vampire.
Can unleash hell….
But an escape from the netherworld soon pits Veritas and Ian against supernatural beings seeking to rule over mortals once again. Now, they must rally friends and foes alike – if the vampire council doesn’t execute Veritas first. Plus, a wedge between Veritas and Ian threatens to destroy their love. Can they stand together against the unearthly powers about to be unleashed? Or does their love – and humanity – not stand a chance?
The book did not disappoint! I finally got a chance to read this. I did check this book out from the library but I do need to buy it so I have the complete set! It took me a day and half. I really had to know what was going to happen with Veritas and Ian. I could not put it down. Isn’t the cover stunning? Can I have the model from the cover? (hahahaha I can dream can’t I?)
I love the relationship that Veritas had with all the characters in this book. Her half brother, just when you think you figure him out, he ends up doing something different. Her relationship with her father is just strange but hey.. I love the relationship she has with Ian, they are such a good match. I love how they actually connect and talk. They sizzle. Ian does ooze of sexy! I can picture his accent…or maybe hear it in my head? He’s bad ass in a good way? In this book Ian and Veritas do connect more which I adored! There are so many different characters in this story that it was so fun. Cat and Bones show up also which I enjoyed. Isn’t it rad how some characters just cross over into another story? Even Vlad makes an appearance! *swoons*
The plot is fast paced and it kept on going. It did not seem long to me at all. I know there was a lot of moving to different places to track down the enemy which was fine with me. Some people may have a problem with that. Going into different places was pretty neat. Some were on earth and other places were not. The places that Ian and Veritas went to that were other worldly had a nice description. I can see everything going on in my head. I do have to point out that I loved how they ended up going to New Orleans for a bit. (I still want to visit that place one day.).
I felt like Veritas is the hero who actually risks her life for her love and to save the world. It was the best! It was an adventure and fun to read! Jeanine’s books are always good to read! I am looking forward to more stories from her.
If you are going to read this book, you need to start with book one : Wicked Bite …then book two: Shades of Wicked and then this book Wicked All Night.
