Determined to solve a string of brutal slayings in London, vampire warrior Mathias Rowan is forced to seek the help of Nova, a fiery tattoo artist who ignites an unexpected, yet undeniable, passion in the grim Order enforcer.
Nova’s shadowy connections and dark talents may be Mathias’s best hope of unmasking a treacherous enemy . . . but falling for a woman with her dangerous past will risk both their hearts and their lives.
I understand that this is a novella and we are trying to pack a lot into the story. I just felt like it was too “insta-love” for Mathias. He didn’t come out and say it right away, but he was pretty aware that Nova was the one for him. There was no fighting it, he just instinctively jumped in to protect her from everything, including his own people. It kind of turned me off his character.
I really enjoyed Nova. She was so feisty and just down to earth. She is smart and picks up on clues really fast to put everything together.
Things happened in the ending I was a bit surprised by, so it was kind of bittersweet.
This novella doesn’t really have any kind of impact on the main Midnight Breed storyline, so it would be ok to read as a stand-alone. I did kind of miss the regular Order guys.
