Marcus was likely dead, killed by the Inquisition, or so it was believed. Then the vampire was found, broken beyond words, in an isolated prison fortress. Marcus had never expected to see daylight again, let alone be rescued by his mate. Now he worries he’ll drag Caleb into his darkness.
Caleb was the one who pulled Marcus out of his prison cell, and he’s determined to drag him from the nightmares of his mind as well. After all, that’s what mates are for, and Caleb had lost hope at finding his. And if he can help destroy the entire Inquisition? Well, all the better.
Dealing with Marcus’s physical and mental healing from his trauma is difficult enough, but Inquisition holdouts are causing chaos everywhere, and sinister plots are rampant. Marcus and Caleb have no choice but to fight back. It’s a good thing they are not alone.
Author’s Note: This title should not be read as a stand-alone.
Now I have to be completely honest and say that I have not read the first book in this trilogy but after reading this book I will be going back and reading it. I will say that I normally want to read the first book in a series such as a trilogy but I was not too lost on what was going on so that made not having read the first book not too bad. I believe, if I am being honest, this book probably just picked up where book one ended so for me not having read it, it was pretty much like I started this book and was good with where the book led me. I was not lost and did not feel like I missed too much to be able to figure out what was happening and why. I love when a book is like that because I really wanted to read this book without having to go to the first book beforehand. I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait to see what is coming next for this group of mix matched tribe.
This book is primarily about two men but it is also a book about a groups of men and women that are closely mixed in with the two main characters. And even though it is mainly about Caleb and Marcus, the story of their family is closely intertwined with theirs, so I believe this is a story about the group as a whole while focusing on the new relationship and mating between Caleb and Marcus.
When this story starts, Marcus is being held captive by the Inquisition. He is badly wounded and near to death when Ro, Shaw, and Caleb show up to rescue the prisoners. What neither Marcus or Caleb expected was to be mates and to realize this in the midst of the rescue. But once Caleb realizes this, there is no way he is letting Marcus out of his sight for anything.
Marcus is in a very bad way. One of the worst of his injuries is the fact that his arm was cut off while captured to see if being a Vampire would rejuvenate the arm. Of course that is not the case but the evil individuals that captured him do not care in the least. All they care about is their experiments.
Once Marcus is on the mend and the word of his rescue has reached his family, the cat is let out of the bag that he has met his mate. Of course everyone is happy for Marcus but the reality of the danger that is still lurking in the wait is still in the air.
Caleb needs to help Marcus to get back into shape both mentally and physically to be able to rejoin his team in order to fight what is still to come. Things are steadily becoming more dangerous and Marcus needs to be by his team mates side to offer his help.
Will Marcus be able to learn to deal with what happened to him when he was captured in order to return to help his teammates in what is most likely going to be a very rough road ahead?
This was a great read. I enjoyed it so much and cannot wait to go back now and read the first book. I definitely can’t wait to get my hands on the third book after reading this one and finding out what is coming next. Great read!!
