Aaron, a man who has only ever know the silver light of a blade and the iron fist of the man who is his father. Everyday is a struggle to resist the darkness his father tries to force upon him. But sometimes he has to succumb to the darkness that wants to take him over in order to survive.
A story about the struggle between good and evil, but sometime the both forces live inside us. A mans struggle to stay good. And a woman, once weak strengthened by her weakness.
This book was deliciously dark, the author was bold and did not shy away from a subject we might find too dark. The characters were lewd, depraved and blood thirsty, but because of that the story was easy to believe. The ending wasn't pretty, no pink bows here to make your heart flutter, it was dark it was gritty and it suited the entire story.
This one is definitely for the dark romance lovers, the hero is not glossed over, he is a man who is flawed. I liked the heroine, she found strength in surrender and did it with dignity! Kicking and screaming isn't always the smartest thing to do, although we'd love to think so.
I approve :)
