Blurb: As a prince of demons, Sytri’s existence has been for one thing, power. He’s gained that in the demon realm, but his pursuit of it cost him something far greater…something he didn’t realize the value of until it was gone. When he first met vampire prince, Basil Warrick, in an instant he saw—and desired—to have once again all that he’d lost; friendship, companionship…love.
Basil has lived for more than three hundred years, and quietly carries the scars left by the vampire who turned him. Connecting with others has never been easy for him, but Sy’s sensual charm is more than he can resist. He knows Sy’s history of betrayal, and the demon is exactly what he shouldn’t want in his life, and yet, Sy is all he wants.
The return of an old enemy of Basil’s brings painful memories and danger to him, and a new enemy of Sy’s threatens to take away what he’s gaining in his life. If their lives are to be eternally bound, the two princes must overcome the threats and challenges before them.
Review: This is such a great series! I loved books one and two (probably equally – though 2 might have edged 1 out a tiny bit…) and this one was really good, but definitely my third favorite in the series.
First, I love that we get to see the other couples – Sal is my fav and he’s in this story a lot! He’s hysterical as always. Calvin is coming along well with his powers that are really developing. I’m not sure why Sebastian is still human but… he and Valentin are cute together.
Second, Basil is another really great character. He’s got some interesting things happening in his life these days – including a past that is pretty dark and disturbing. When he meets his “maker” – literally – I really wanted to punch that guy in the face!
Unfortunately, Sy is harder to emote over. He’s not a bad guy and we get his side of the story in his squabble with Sal – but he’s just a little – blah – as compared to Basil, Valentin, Calvin and Sal. I didn’t find anything really “remarkable” about him to glom onto.
Sy and Basil are a nice enough couple, but in this story I kinda felt like we were either Fucking, Fighting or talking about our Feelings (and those usually weren’t between Sy and Basil).
In any case – this was fun, and it was fab seeing all the old crew again, the powers and magic and action are great and though it wasn’t my favorite it is still an excellent book in a fantastic series!
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
