Love conquers all . . . but can it stop the Apocalypse?
Mira Herald is having the worst life ever. Not only is she plagued by horrific nightmares starring the Devil himself, she s now the target of a power-hungry, rogue minion, freshly sprung from Hell and bent on her destruction. To complicate matters further, she s acquired a stalker. One who insists he s a divine warrior sent for her protection because she houses an ancient relic with the power to unleash Armageddon. Last time Mira checked, she wasn t insane. Still, all this celestial mayhem is enough to drive a girl crazy.
Kagan is a member of the Scion, an elite team of immortal warriors selected by Divinity to aid mankind and save the world. After a century alone, Kagan is summoned for a new mission. He s eager to begin. Eager until he s informed his mission consists of protecting a woman with no clue to the power she wields. Plus, his briefing fails to prepare him for his new target s cosmic-sized attitude problem. As Divinity s sworn servant, he s required to fulfill his duty. His oath, however, does not require him to be enthusiastic about his new assignment or warm-and-fuzzy toward his new compatriot. He plans a wham-bam rescue and a quick return to solitude.
The minion attacks - with the backing of a mysterious organization - and all Hades erupts, putting a fast end to any whirlwind escapes. Accustomed to staunch independence, Mira s survival now requires full cooperation and an unwavering belief in Kagan. The battle-hardened warrior is also forced to chose: between duty and desire. Amidst the turmoil, Kagan and Mira s undeniable passion draws them closer to each other and down a path neither expected but both yearn for, more than they ever knew.
Will love save the day? The world s fate depends on the answer.
Mira Herald is working on her self-defense moves – has me tired out just reading about it. She’s had to deal with a lot – especially with the cruelty that’s part of our world today. Kagan is the first Scion to protect a Seal.
This couple has an interesting first meeting and you can almost feel the heat level rise. Traci has given Mira skills that most women don’t have. It must have taken quite a bit of research to get her abilities accurate. Our group keeps meeting up with their nemesis, Argus, and he just makes things more intense. There is some violence in this story but nothing that I find overly grotesque.
You will find that this is a series that once it catches your attention, it won’t let you out of its grip until you get to the very last page. Our author lets her characters decide when the time is right for romance. The action and suspense is what comes first and any sex is just icing on the cake. What a great first book and it will leave you ready to follow wherever Traci leads us. I think this is a series you should consider following.
