For exiled angel Jessie, falling for Eden Reece has been her salvation. When she discovers that her angel tears, used to heal Eden, are actually poisoning him the burden of guilt is crushing.
Jessie is determined to make things right and, with Eden by her side, they are a formidable team. But with Blackthorn surrounded by an impenetrable barrier and the army of Sirius Throme closing in, their mission is a desperate one. When Jessie discovers they are up against her own kind too, it looks impossible.
Eden and Jessie don’t just need a cure, they need a way out – and have less than 48 hours to find both.
Eden will fight to the last to protect Jessie, but when they are captured and separated, demons from his past return to haunt him. Suddenly, Jessie is forced to question everything she knows about the man she loves.
Yet the most shattering twist is still to come. Because what you care about most can be your biggest weakness.
For Blackthorn to survive, either Jessie or Eden will have to make the greatest sacrifice of all…
The thrilling penultimate story in the Blackthorn series will leave you breathless.
The depth of emotions this story called forth is totally unbelievable. I'd enjoyed previous books with characters that excited but the utter depravity and evil in play here has left my head spinning. Complex does not begin to describe it, dark is far too light a word to use and all I can envisage is an onion with so many layers gradually peeling back leaving heartbreaking scenes and a whole lot of work left to do. Did I read this right? This is the penultimate book which means only one book left and it's all still very much to play for.
I just refuse to give away the plot but will confirm that yes, it's the very human Eden and the angelic Jessie who step forward here. The synopsis gives away the fact that whilst trying to find a way to save Blackthorn the couple (who’ve only just found each other) are captured and from that point on the revelations and well kept secrets come flooding forth.
There's something here that as a hopeless romantic I found difficult to deal with but the love that shines through meant I could understand why. You will be shocked, horrified, and so emotional from this point on; but remember to watch the sidelines, look around at all the peripheral goings on. The characters in this world are set on a collision course of such magnitude I cannot begin to imagine just how the author can possibly wrap everything up in the next and last instalment.
I was gifted a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
