A nude man invades Luca Suarez’s home and protects him from creatures who cannot exist. Creatures hunting him.
The stranger can’t tell Luca why. He can’t even tell Luca his name. He remembers nothing until the moment he sees Luca. The only hint Luca has to the stranger’s identity is a tattoo on his wrist: “N o X”.
Nox doesn’t know who he is, but he’s sure of three things, his memory loss is temporary, the monsters chasing Luca are called Anubis, and his Alpha, Koda, sent Nox to protect him. There’s just one problem…. Koda is Luca’s brother who was murdered five years ago.
With each passing hour, Nox fills in the pieces painting an impossible truth. And with each passing hour, both men find themselves inexplicably attracted to each other. Something Luca is willing to embrace because he has nothing left to lose. And one Nox can’t let happen because it could get Luca killed.
Contains mature themes.
I can’t think of another story right now that not only kept me entertained, checked all my boxes, and had my fists clenched during multiple scenes like this one did.
This story had:
5 Star Worldbuilding
I feel like this could be heard by lovers of many genres and be treasured at the same time. I was so caught up in the story between Luca and Nox… and just as something was happening between them, the chapter would switch to the POV of the doctor/scientist thread and I’d find myself drowning in their story as well.
Every character was brilliant, the writing was so descriptive and flowing… I just absolutely loved it. And I will say, I was a little overwhelmed when I saw that the audio was 15 hours, but it was 15 enjoyable hours and went quickly.
The narration by Kirt Graves pulled me in and kept me hostage from start to finish. There was obvious tone change between characters from the beginning, so there were no issues with who was speaking throughout. The longing, the need, the anger, fear… it was all mapped out in his voice, causing me to react as the listener as well. It was quite an experience.
Brilliantly written, masterfully performed. Absolutely recommended.
