WOW! That doesn’t sum up much but what it does show is just how much of a great author Christine Warren truly is. There was everything that a great book needs. Romance, hero, heroine, tragedy, most of all a happy ever after. So where does all this get someone thinking about reading any of Christine Warren’s book? Well, you get pulled into the book within the first few pages, you get suspense, you get nail biting, you get a few times where you think about putting the book down because your favourite character is not doing what you think he/she should be doing.
Ivy, might not believe that she has any real magic but she does know that there is a greater good that needs to have the backing of the people that do have real magic. She knows that the darkness is trying to take over the world and that they have succeeded in wiping out half of the people that could possibly help the ones that are strong enough to save the world. So, she acts as a middle man helping wardens to get to Paris where other wardens have already been placed into safe houses to try and get the Guardians to help save the world. So, what happens when one of the Guardians saves her life and tells her that she is his saviour? Can she believe him? Can she risk her heart if it turns out to not be the case?
Bren has lived a life that only a few others can truly know the pain of, only awakening from years of sleep to fight for a world that they don’t know just to be put right back into a sleep till the next war. There is a way to keep Bren from being put back into a sleep-like state but that all depends on Ivy. Bren knows that she is the reason that he is awake but can he convince her that they belong together? Bren knows that he is from a different time whereas Ivy is from a much more modern time where women have independence as well as a need to feel like they are more than just someone to keep your bed warm at night.
