What she never anticipates is coming face to face with the warrior who hashaunted her her entire life.
Ren Waya came back from the dead to keep the prophecy he began from coming true and ending the world. For thousands of years, he has fought the same evil that once possessed him. But now that evil has brought back the one person he can’t fight. The one person who once held the most sacred part of him…His heart.
But if he doesn’t kill Kateri, the deadliest of evils will reemerge and destroy everyone else on the planet. It was a sacrifice he made once. Will he be able to make it again?
First off I want everyone to know how honored I am to be writing this review. Because of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s DH series I would not have the people in my life that I do now, and I probably wouldn’t be in this position to be writing for this amazing site.
In this book you learn more about Sunshine and her brothers, Nick and Ash's relationship, how tight Ren and Sundown care considering him and Abigail name a child after him...sorry wont give that away. :D You also get to see a little more of Alexion.You also learn that the Mayan and Cherokee history/myth relate to each other. Kateri and Ren see each other in their dreams, but as soon as they come into physical contact neither them ever expected to fall in love with one another.
I have to say this is one of the most amazing books from her Dark-Hunter series. Considering how everyone is constantly talking about the end of the world coming, this was perfect timing. Kenyon always seems to bring more depth into her characters which allows us to get to know them so much better. The way she writes the action and emotions just jump off the page. Once I got a hold of the book I really didn’t want to put it down. If you’re a fan and follow this series then it is a MUST read. Besides wouldn’t you like to know if this is the end of the world for our favorite characters, or if there is more to come?
She covered her eyes with her hand and groaned at what a basket case she must look like to poor Ren.
“I am so sorry, sweetie. It’s just been a horrendous last few days. I’m tired. I’m scared, and I lost a really good friend right before all of this happened.”
Ren didn’t respond. He just kept rocking her.
Frowning, she wiped at her eyes and looked up at him. “Are you all right?”
He nodded, then brushed away more of her tears.
“Then why aren’t you speaking to me?”
Panic flashed across his features. He glanced away as if trying to think of a response.
“Ren? Talk to me.”
His lips twitched before he finally spoke in a low tone. “I don’t want to say the wrong thing again and make you cry more.”
The pure innocent sweetness of that wrenched another sob from her.
“Ah, see now what I did. I’m sorry, Kateri. I won’t say anything else. I promise.”
She laid her head down on his shoulder and wrapped her arms around his neck. “It’s so not you, baby. You did nothing, absolutely nothing wrong.”
She squeezed him tight, wishing she could make him understand. “All you’ve been is wonderful.…”
Ren knew she was speaking, but he couldn’t make out the words. Not after she’d called him baby and sweetie. No one had ever used an endearment for him before. Until now, the closest anyone had come was to call him friend or brother.
But baby …
He’d never been anyone’s baby.
“Are you listening to me?”
You should probably say yes. That would be the smartest thing to do. But for some stupid reason the truth came out before he could stop it. “Um … no.”
“Why are you tuning me out?” she snapped as fury lit up her eyes.
Ren moved his jaw, trying to explain, but no words would leave his lips as he stammered over the word I. Why do I always do this shit when I least want to look like an idiot?
He expected her to be angry. Instead, she kissed him senseless. Every part of him went into overdrive as his cock hardened.
She pulled back. “What were you trying to say?”
Heat scalded his face. “I didn’t hear anything after you called me baby.”
