Mason thought he lost his chance at love when his mate died years ago, but when Serenity, a vampire, enters his life, everything changes. He's drawn to her and he has no clue why. He craves her in ways he can't explain, and starts the mating process without even thinking. Serenity is also drawn to Mason and these two together is in-explainable. With everyone in the house on edge trying to figure out the changes going on with Mason, and happy he's finally willing to find love again, but worried that it's with a vampire, things definitely get interesting. The only one who truly seems to understand is the all knowing Cassius.
This book definitely provided many twists and turns, and what the heck moments for Mason and Serenity. There's so many things that happened that I wasn't expecting but trust me, if you love paranormal or love Rachel Van Dyken, you'll love the crazy ride she takes you on with their love story. The ways these two are tied to one another is beautiful yet tragic, and I loved every single second of it. I hated how torn Mason was with everything, yet when he finally accepted it, I loved how strong he was and how he seemed to embrace it, and Serenity. These two together are stronger than anything, and are truly a match made in heaven. If you've read the entire Dark Ones Saga, you'll see so many answers come to light, but if you're just now jumping in, you'll want to go back and read the other books too, because you'll fall in love with all of the characters (heck I want to go back and re-read the series now!).
This was a perfect addition to the saga, and Mason's story couldn't have been more beautiful. I loved his mate, and how his story played out. It made perfect sense for everything he's been through and why he is the way he is. I loved how much he changed, yet he was still true to himself and the people around him. This is a must read for paranormal fans, or anyone who loves romance and a bit of humor! Definitely pick this book up today. It's hot, sexy, and full of twists and turns!
In the world of Rachel Van Dyken's immortals though, there's a war brewing, and since immortals are stronger when they're mated, Mason is obligated to take another mate even though he'd much rather wallow in his grief.
I remember noting in my review of the first book of this series of standalones that Rachel was clever in keeping her list of immortal species an open ended one, and there have been a few additions to that list in subsequent books, but in this book, that comment seems particularly pertinent.
There's drama, heartache, betrayal and love and everything you might expect if you're already a fan of the series, but perhaps more so than in many other books, this tumultuous tale is veritably riddled with twists and turns, upheavals and revelations. So much so that the whole book had me thinking that, like in the way of dreams that I mentioned earlier, there was this sense that things that shouldn't make sense … just did.
Sometimes with stories, whether in print or on film, there's this sense that the plot twist, or the surprise ending is so contrived that it pushes people out of the illusion, that immersive experience of actually living inside the narrative, but for me at least, I felt exactly the opposite. As reveals and surprises tumbled off the page in a never ending deluge, just like in a dream where the weird and wonderful, for whatever reason seem perfectly natural, each revelation, each bombshell, was yet another aha having things make more and more sense rather than less.
Needless to say, it kept me riveted till the very last page, and left me hoping that Rachel can squeeze at least one more out of the series.
