"Read this series, read this book. It's amazing."
Ilya Prakenskii and Joley Drake have been dancing around
the music that binds them for months now. They are bound by
magic, danger, lust, love, emotion, color, psychic
abilities and so much more. Once Ilya saw Joley, he knew
she was his, now he has to convince the headstrong singing
star that he is her destiny too.
Both come from magical backgrounds, but they are vastly
different. Somehow, they must find a way to come together.
Ilya will have it no other way, the powerful, strong and
enigmatic man will not take "no" for an answer.
Particularly, when it becomes clear Joley is in more danger
than she even conceives of, more than any other superstar
can expect to experience.
Months he's waited and now he plans to claim, though he
must keep her alive to do that. Somehow, they must find a
way to stay alive and find a way to come together, in love.
Powerful forces and madmen are determined to tear the two
apart, tear Joley apart. Ilya will do whatever deed needs
to be done to save her, he is trained that way, and he will
need every bit of his training to survive. Dangers surround
the Drakes and this is just another cog in the wheel that
must be stopped, much more than the two lovers are at
This is a powerful book. I've waited for ages for this
book, Ilya and Joley simply are such incredible characters
that they have truly made Ms. Feehan's fans desperate for
their story. Christine Feehan doesn't disappoint with this
latest installment of the Drake Sisters. Read this book!
However, I am a lover of series books, as I've mentioned in
the past, some books simply should not be read out of
order. This book can be read as a standalone, but I don't
recommend that if you expect to get the full impact out of
this powerful story of love and magic. I especially say
this, when this is setting up the last book in the series
in magnificent fashion. Read this series, read this book.
