Lothaire, the enemy of old, is one of the oldest living immortals left in lore. A vampire of immeasurable power and ultimate evil, he has found his bride at last. Elizabeth (Ellie) Peirce is a human with an unfortunate problem: Saroya the Soul Reaper, a goddess of death, is trapped inside her body. As she fights to save herself from the evil Lothaire, who seeks to banish her soul and resurrect Saroya, will she instead lose her heart to the dangerous vampire?

The 12th book in the Immortals After Dark series, this novel by Kresley Cole is everything it promises to be and more. It not only delivers the exceptional romance and intrigue that readers have come to expect from Cole, but it also provides readers a much sought-after glimpse into the history of Nix and her relationship with Lothaire. With wit and gumption, Ellie worms her way into the reader’s heart. While the story seems to drag a little in some sections, it is still an amazing read. All in all, this book is a great continuation of a fabulous series.
