Rating: 4 Cups
FBI agent Chris Renshaw is after a master thief and to her it is personal. This man may be the direct cause of her partner’s suicide, and if she wants to redeem her name with the bureau, she must catch him.
For seven centuries Robin of Locksley has spanned the globe absconding with millions upon millions of dollars worth of precious art. He has, however, failed to get the one piece that has eluded him in all of that time, The Maiden’s Book of Hours, but now its time has come.
Robin is so close to finally having the book he wants above all else, and the only thing standing in his way is one measly human female. He is Darkyn, immortal, and omnipotent, but after having one fleeting taste of Chris Renshaw, he is sunk. Chris fights tooth and nail to deny the truth about the one man who has ever gotten past her defenses. How can she have a relationship with a man who is so much more, and with death and destruction dogging their every move, will they even have a chance to find out?
Please note that had I been lucky enough to have read the entire Darkyn series, this book would most definitely have received a 5 Cup rating. However stepping into it blind, it took time for me to understand and appreciate all of the intricacies surrounding the plot and its players. That said, this book is a most fascinating resurrection of ancient heroes and villains with thrills and chills around every turn. The romance, suspense, and danger are all superbly written, and a very brief but excellently written love scene between two men is included. I very much look forward to reading this series from the beginning, and really immersing myself in the lives of these amazing characters.
