The quick and dirty: Callie’s newfound immortality plays right into the hands of the Thief of Souls who wants to claim her as his own. When the kingdom and her mate come under attack, Callie must come to terms with the true nature of her siren in order to keep the Thief of Souls from destroying the realm and taking Des away from her forever.
Des helps Callie navigate her newfound immortality, changes in her abilities and future role as queen but she still has trouble accepting the full extent of her siren’s powers. When the kingdom is attacked by the sleeping women and soldiers, Callie steps up to defend her new home but Galleghar Nyx is back and the Thief of Souls has been plaguing her dreams, taunting to do unspeakably horrific things to her once she’s in his grasp. The final straw comes when he attacks Des and Callie is forced to face her true powers in order to get her mate back and destroy a seemingly unstoppable force that not only wants to subject her to centuries of horror but also obliterate her kingdom.
There are worse things than death. Things that lurk in the shadows and slip into your dreams. Things that have no business existing. Things that once slept … but have now awoken.
For Callypso Lillis, the fae magic that now runs through her veins is equal parts curse and good fortune. For the very thing that bonds her to Desmond Flynn, the King of the Night, also makes her vulnerable to the Thief of Souls, a man who wants to break the world … and Callie along with it.
But it’s not just the Thief whose shadow looms over the Otherworld. Des’s father is back from the dead, and he wants revenge on the son who sent him to the grave in the first place.
Des and Callie must figure out how to stop both men, and time is running out. Because there are forces at play working to tear the lovers apart once and for all … and unfortunately for them, death is no longer the worst thing to fear.
Found in the forest when she was young, Laura Thalassa was raised by fairies, kidnapped by werewolves, and given over to vampires as repayment for a hundred year debt. She’s been brought back to life twice, and, with a single kiss, she woke her true love from eternal sleep. She now lives happily ever after with her undead prince in a castle in the woods.
… or something like that anyway.
When not writing, Laura can be found scarfing down guacamole, hoarding chocolate for the apocalypse, or curled up on the couch with a good book.
