Someone has opened the cage.
The worst of terrors has crossed the barrier that separates our world from theirs, and the Furies send a great, albeit untested warrior—their only son, Alek—to try to bring those souls back. He is young and handsome, headstrong and impulsive, and he won’t be able to do it alone.
Eva has grown up, beautiful and beloved, but surrounded by secrets. First, she will be hunted in an ancient feud that will threaten her life. Then, she will become the hunter.
With the police closing in and two worlds on the verge of crumbling around them, Alek and Eva must find each other, discover the limits of their powers, and work together to save everything they hold dear, including one another. Blending elements of mythology with the dazzling storytelling that her fans have devoured through the House of Night series, Kristin Cast weaves a spellbinding and passionate tale that starts a thrilling new series with an explosive charge.
Eva thinks she's just an ordinary girl going about her business but unfortunately she couldn't be more wrong. Unknown to Eva, there's a vicious killer roaming the streets with a most unusual way of leaving his victims. Eva's life is about to be put in jeopardy as it’s something truly ancient and vile stalking her. Can Alek find Eva in time and if so, just what exactly does destiny have in store?
I'm a little on the fence about Amber Smoke. It just jumped about so much. Tartarus, the humans tracking the killer, and then of course there's the 'thing' between Alek and Eva. Is it meant to be the start of a romance? There's a few funny moments as Alek struggles to fit in amongst humans. The supporting characters were interesting, but I don't think this series is really for me.
