She is betrothed to Seattle's most feared shifter clan leader. Still, the Lady Lucia can never be the dainty aristocratic wife Emory Corbette thinks he needs. And as a malevolent, all-consuming monster plots to take hold of their shattered world, Lucia will risk her untapped powers to defeat it—and challenge the Raven King's seductive rule.
No one in Emory's many lifetimes has ever defied him. Lucia's courage and strength are shaking his iron control to its core...and making him hungry for all she can give. But their only hope is a wrenching sacrifice that could unite humans and shifters in victory—or destroy everything Lucia and Emory desire most.
Set in a world that's broken and turbulent we meet Lucia, who is engaged to the most powerful shapeshifter alive, Emory Corbettre. It's a betrothal of necessity rather than love, but Lucia wants him to see the woman within her and not just his duty.
Lucia has been broken and is still putting her fragile psyche back together . She was cruelly used as a sacrifice when her virgin blood was used to tear down the gates that guard the underworld but the real Lucia is crawling back. Determined to help protect what remains of her people, she won't allow anyone to stand in her way, not even Emory! Together they will embark on a journey through death itself in the hope of salvation.
Oh my, what an amazing read! It's a confusing mixture at first of shape shifters, demons, Babyloneon Demi-gods. Hearts of Chaos even draws on Native American folklore involving spirits, but it's certainly not dull! I thought at first it might be urban fantasy but there is a very hot romance within this book. Not for those who don't enjoy sex within their books.
It took a little while for me to get sucked into the world the Ms Brady has created but once I understood all that was happening, bam! It took off like a steam train and it became an amazing ride!
Fabulous world building , amazing characters and an evil villain, what's not to love. It's ending has the most intriguing epilogue. I'm so very happy to recommend this book!
