About The Book:
There exists a world beyond our own. It is a world of ancient magic and well-guarded secrets, a world of strict laws and harsh punishments for those who betray them, a world inhabited by the Ikati, a race of gifted people who are so much more than they first appear. Brought together by fate in this world of danger and beauty, two people with dark pasts will meet.

Morgan is beautiful, smart, sexy…and about to die. Convicted of treason against her shape-shifting kin, she is given one last chance at redemption; discover the hidden lair of the enemy intent on destroying every one of her kind, or forfeit her life.

Xander is ruthless, heartless, cold-blooded…and assigned to kill her if she fails in her task. Expecting to feel nothing but contempt for the traitor under his watch, the assassin accompanies Morgan on her search, but as the two race through the heart of Italy while the clock winds down to zero hour, he finds himself drawn into a dangerous web of desire as powerful as it is forbidden. Their passion will test everything they believe in, and endanger the future of the tribe itself.

Lynda's Review:
Judging by the blurb, I did not expect this story to be as bloody as it turned out. I also wasn't expecting the creatures to remind me more of vampires than any breed of animal. It is rightly labeled a thriller with a high octane race against time, circumstance, and super-bad villains. Author J.T. Geissinger expertly moves this plot forward through two powerful characters, Xander and Morgan. There is a lot going on in this story with quite a bit of supporting description. For me, these elements served to slow the story down rather than to enrich it. I'm giving this book Two Stars!
