The challenge wasn’t meant to be easy. They were set up to fail from the beginning.
Priya’s the last of her kind…
After death takes the only family Priya has ever known, she ventures out to find others like her, those who catch fire and fly. But shadow hunters prowl the night ready to kill firebirds like her, and one has found her trail. After a narrow escape she runs into the kind of man she shouldn’t want…a man with silver eyes as if the very moon has been trapped inside his gaze.
His help won’t be enough when Nicholas finds her.
Doulzen is a shade by birth, shadow hunter by rite…
When an extinct white firebird flies through the night sky, fire blazing behind the creature, he knows he has to have it. Pulling the shadows in, he notches his arrow and downs his prey, but when he arrives to catch it, he finds a female running from someone instead. He promised himself he wouldn’t be her protector, he’d get her where she needed to go, but when Nicholas shows up and takes Priya from him, Doulzen finds the mark that tells him she is his fated mate. With darkness at his heels, he will stop at nothing to get her back as his very existence relies on it.
When Priya and Doulzen find out each other’s secrets, it will take a lot more than fate to bring them back together.
This is actually the first thing I have ever read from Decadent Kane, but it certainly isn’t the last. If the rest of her series are this good, I am going to have to buy them all. Immediately.
First off, I love her style. It is easy to read with detracting or oversimplifying the story. With the ability to weave an elaborate world filled with fantastical fantasy, Kane’s story is a magical journey I would gladly take again and again.
Knowing what I do about the author, I was expecting a sassy fierce female lead, and I was not disappoint. A dynamic characters, I appreciated Priya’s ability to handle herself and adapt to a situation she wasn’t looking for nor did she ask for it. Not to mention the chemistry between her and the male lead was palpable. I may be biased since I am fan of enemies to lovers stories. They just…unf.
If you are a fan of paranormal romances filled with personal growth and enough chemistry to scorch the pages, I highly recommend Dark Burn.
