Once upon a time…the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs…and time is running out.…

As the dark Lord who condemns souls to damnation in the Abyss, Micah is nothing but a feared monster wrapped in impenetrable black armor. He has no idea he is the last heir of Elden, its last hope. Only one woman knows—the daughter of his enemy.

Liliana is nothing like her father, the Blood Sorcerer who’d cursed Micah. She sees past Micah’s armor to the prince inside. A prince whose sinful touch she craves. But first she has to brave his dark, dangerous lair and help him remember. Because they only have till midnight to save Elden.

REVIEW & Book Trailer:

Gah! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's a little bit of The Ugly Duckling meets Romeo and Juliet meets 1001 Arabian Nights.  It goes something like this:
  • Girl is the guide for boy who is the Guardian of the Abyss
  • Boy is angry with girl
  • Girl becomes cook and prisoner at boys castle after bribing him to tell him stories
  • Boy is slightly attracted to girl and is confused by feelings for girl
  • Girl is slightly attracted to boy even though he wears a black suit of impenetrable armor and is quite testy
  • Boy is a prince of a kingdom taken over by evil sorcerer
  • Girl is the daughter of said evil sorcerer
  • Girl must get boy back to kingdom to fight evil sorcerer with the help of his siblings
  • Boy and girl make The Sexy and everything changes
  • Girl tells boy stories of his kingdom but boy doesn't know it's his kingdom
  • Boy gets flashes of his past and soon begins to remember
  • Girl knows she must sacrifice her life so boy can defeat her father
  • Boy finds out girl has been lying to him and gets angry
  • Boy and girl must travel to his kingdom to defeat evil sorcerer once and for all
  • Boy and girl face dangerous obstacles along the way
  • Boy and girl must decide whether their giant misunderstanding is worth putting aside and living Happily Ever After
The End.
FAVORITE QUOTE:
A prince, regardless of his position in line for the throne, was expected to marry a certain kind of woman, a woman with an unsullied past, one who could carry the crown of princess with elegance and beauty. Everything Liliana was not. You could be his mistress.The sly suggestion came from the part of her that had no honor where Micah was concerned. She was sure she would do any terrible thing to be with him---but she didn't think she could stand to share him, to know that another woman had the right the bear his name and is children, to love him and hold him. It would break her.
OVERALL: I loved the fact that this was a fast paced read. Danger, betrayal, secrets, adventure, love, laughter and a dangerously sexy man. *sigh* Everything I look for in a great story. The ending wasn't was epic as I thought it would be but it still brought a tear to my eye and a smile to my face. I will be reading more books from Nalini Singh. Well, after I get this monster of a TBR pile down. ***review copy from Netgalley***
