Dagan Krayl meets Roxy Tam one fateful night while on the hunt for a dark soul. This particular dark soul that Dagan apprehends just happens to be holding Roxy captive with plans to make her his latest murder victim. Dagan is an immortal soul reaper and one of four sons to the Lord of Chaos, Sutekh, ruler of the Underworld. This chance meeting between Roxy and Dagan leads to an instant connection that forever changes their lives. Eleven years pass after their meeting with Dagan still being haunted by Roxy’s face, but now searching for the party responsible for killing his brother, Lokan. Roxy is a foot solider for the Daughters of Aset and continually has dreams of Dagan as well. When both Roxy and Dagan meet again, they are on opposite sides of an ongoing feud between Sutekh and his mortal enemy, Aset. They are both looking to find the remains and soul of Lokan, one to save him and the other to prevent him from being reanimated and brought back to life. This time, their reunion will either help them join forces or tear them apart.
When I started reading this novel, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect and I’m glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised. I’m a huge history and Egyptian mythology buff, so this was right up my alley and I was completely captivated. The love story between Roxy and Dagan was refreshing because they had this connection that stayed with them for years and no one else was ever able to measure up. When they do reconnect with one another, hot steamy sex followed.
Roxy Tam was also a favorite character for me because she was a strong, independent and intelligent heroine. She spent the last eleven years believing that she had special abilities due to her one time meeting with Dagan only to find out that she had these special abilities all along. This left more questions as to who Roxy was and why her mother abandoned her at the age of five. I’m looking forward to finding out some of these answers in the next novel, Sins of the Soul. I enjoyed reading this book and with the cliffhanger at the end, it has left me wanting more.
