Bono isn't part of Cain Jones' team, not in the sense that he has none of the Seven Arts but he does fly them around the world, wherever they need to go. When their target, a woman who can read the future, a Chiromancist, takes a shine to Bono, he is thrown into the fray. But Sky pushes his buttons, buttons he never knew needed pushing. And it becomes a question of who will die first: Sky at the hands of Josselin and his team, or Bono at the hands of Sky's jailers.
This is book 8 in the Seven Forbidden Arts series. It can be read as a stand alone, but I re-iterate the point that I would strongly recommend you read all the other books before this one. It would give you a better picture of Cain and his team, and of Godfrey and what he's been up.
I am so very very glad Bono got a story! I've been waiting for his story, (not even knowing if it would come, because I somehow forgot to ask THAT question of Ms Pauls) since he dropped Josselin of in front of Clelia all the way back in book one.
And it does NOT disappoint!
Bono, the brooding Senegalese pilot, first meets Sky, the Chiromancist, when they visit for a reading. They know just what she is and what her Art is. They also know who has her on a tight leash. She doesn't like what she sees and she has no idea how to stop it. But Bono makes Sky want in a way she never did before. However, her ties to Doumar, and to Godfrey run fast, and they run deep. She knows the only way she'll really be free is to die, and to take Doumar and Godfrey with her.
Finally!! We finally get just WHAT Godfrey is doing and not even Cain Jones saw THAT one coming, I tell ya! Not saying what, cos that's spoilers, and you'll not get it, nope, certainly won't!! But I swear, Godfrey has more lives than a bloody cat, and so far, he has used 8 of them. So book 9, Cain's story (soooooooooooo bloody excited for that!!) and Godfrey *should* run out!
I love the layers that Pauls weaves into her stories. I did not see what Sky was gonna do coming at me. I did NOT see why those ties ran so deep coming at me! I did not see what Cain and Bono and the team did coming at me! I love being surprised on every level here!
There is far less emphasis on Sky's Art. It not about her Art. It's about her and Bono and their love for each other, and how to get themselves out of the mess they find they are in. And you know what?? I LOVED that. In one of the other book reviews for this series, I noted that I didn't like that in that book, there wasn't so much of the Art. But HERE?? LOVED that there wasn't so much of it. I've no idea why it worked so well here!
Something didn't quite click for me in book 7. Not so here. Whatever it was, doesn't happen here and I would have read this book in one sitting, well into time when I should have been at work, but really, I had to be present that day! But had real life not got in the way, one, single sitting. And its a long book!!
OH!!! that little birthday party!! So great to catch up with everyone and their other halves, and the little ones! So many little people!!
Ok so, summing up??
BEST ONE YET!! By far, after book one, my favourite of them all!!
5 full and shiny stars, because, lets face it, it can't have anything else, not at all!!

Being the recipient of a forbidden art can be a blessing or a curse. For Sky Val it meant being dealt an awfully bad hand in this life. As a Chiromancist she has the ability to read timelines, past, present, and the future if a person allows her to, making her a highly coveted property to control. Betrayed by family into a life of servitude to a brutally vicious man the chains he placed on her cannot be easily broken and she’s forced to do things she would never have otherwise done. Yet she defies her captor when she can and usually pays a costly price when she does so. Can she find a way to escape the prison she’s trapped in before the most precious thing in her universe is destroyed?
Bono Black does not wield any of the forbidden arts but he’s the pilot to a team that does. He’s also the man who caught the attention of the woman arts holder they need to use for information before she’s assassinated by them. The sadness in her stunning blue eyes drew him, as he gets to know the woman he finds that she’s a contradiction and he has his own plans for her that won’t sit well with the team. Though he won’t knowingly betray them and believes he has things handled but does he really? With their physical presence setting off a series of dire events it’s uncertain whether they’ll even be able to survive. Will the Chiromancist’s prediction for them come true?
Forced to do a reading brought Sky an intriguing man who elicited unwanted emotions inside her, she’s assigned to use him as the man who controls her master has a decidedly evil agenda for his team. Bono is a protective, caring man unlike any Sky has ever known and it confuses her. Could he be for real? Her true life experiences would tell her otherwise but there’s something different about this man that has her wondering possibilities. Bono’s own inner torments enable them to connect at a deep level. Her art though showed her what they came for and how it will end. Can she change an inevitable outcome?
This book was an intense, exciting, emotional installment to the series that I couldn’t put down. When I run across a character that life doesn’t break no matter the horrors thrown at them I applaud their inner strength, their level of endurance and I have to root for them though circumstances might place them on the wrong side. Sky is such a character, she’s defiance personified to the end and she had me going there. Would she do what she was expected to do or not? I honestly wasn’t sure, it was too close to call and I rather liked her solution, the ultimate rebellion, but more so how it all turned out. This book was fast paced with quite an action and suspense resolution to the situation. We got to see the whole team and the underlying storyline seriously moved forward. We learn the psychotic Godfrey’s horrendous plan. How will it all turn out is what keeps me following this series. There are some brutal scenes to contend with that heighten the suspense and have you deservedly hating certain characters.
