You’d have thought that Ben and Nikolas would have learnt that their romantic holidays inevitably end up as disasters. A short break on the polar ice sees them trapped in a nightmare of murder and deceit. Neither of them, however, foresees the long-term impact that endless winter has on their relationship. They return with a metaphorical darkness that threatens everything they have created together. Desperate and fearing for Nikolas’s life, Ben makes a bargain with a surprising ally. For the first time, Nikolas meets an enemy more powerful than he is. But fortunately, not as sneaky…
John Wiltshire is a brilliant writer. I guarantee that I couldn’t stomach some of the same storylines from anyone else.
The blurb for this one was the most ambiguous yet. And this book was set up much like some of the earlier in the series were. In two parts. The first part of the book is more action after Nik and Ben go on a little trip to an island north of Norway together. Haven’t they learned that vacationing together is dangerous?
The second part…..well the second part was where Wiltshire proceeded to rip my heart out of my chest. He’s surprisingly good at this. I thought he was done with this for a while after the fake-out cheating with Jackson. But no. He still has a way with making you bleed. We spent most of the last book yelling internally at Nik. It’s Ben’s turn folks! He has quite a shocking surprise for Nik. It changes Nik’s life, and he doesn’t let Nik have any say in the matter.
The blurb is vague for a reason. And I won’t spoil anything with my review. But this was an amazing addition to the series. There isn’t a cliffhanger, but there is another book coming. Fans to the series will love it!
