Overview

Warning - This book is intended for mature audience. Excessive language and sexual situations may not be suitable for younger teens. This story also includes m/m romance.

Keller Witmore is a bang ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy. Seeing that he is an incubus, so you can hardly blame him. In all his seventeen years, he’s never had anyone, a mom nor a dad to show him what love means. No one except for Hudson, his best friend, his brother in every sense of the word except blood. Growing up in the boarding school for demon and angel Halves, he’s known no other life. But when a war brews and the campus is closed, he will find out a lot of things about himself, what he is, who he is and who he wants to become. When it’s all said and done, can he ever go back to the way things were?

Hudson Yarde’s life revolves around being Keller’s wingman, it’s a full time job with both it’s perks and drawbacks. Drawn into the Keller’s antics since a young age, Hudson stays to protect Keller from himself, stays to hide in his shadows, away from the spotlight. He stays to keep his secret. For years he’s been waiting for his incubus nature to kick in but it hasn’t happened yet. A chance meeting, the impending of war and being freed from the judgment and rules, gives him the opportunity to be what he wants to be, himself.

Together they leave for the human domain. Neither of them aware of the others secrets or of those around them. And for the first time, a gap could wedge between them, carved by the sharp knife of distrust. Lies of omission will draw a line between them at the dawn of the war over humanity.

    Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love Shannon Dermott's wor

    Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love Shannon Dermott's work, so I don't know what took me so long to get around to picking up Alliance, which she co wrote with Danyele Johnson.

    Unfortunately, the first half of this book fell completely flat for me. I couldn't connect with the characters and it felt like there was a lot of unnecessary filler, which really wasn't taking me anywhere. It was only the fact that, down the line, this series connects with the Cambion series (one of my all time favourites), which is written by Shannon, and I really wanted to be able to make that connection when the time comes. 

    But at around the 50% mark, things really kicked up a gear. Keller and Hudson are in the human world, and learning to deal with their complicated sexuality. I really felt more connected to them both as characters then and became more invested in them. I also felt that the humans we met made much more of an impression on me, and were a lot more memorable, than any of the supernatural characters we met at the beginning, whose names I struggled to remember. Excitement kicked in for me, the angsty relationship takes off and there's mystery surrounding Gary, and Hudson's origins. I really didn't like Cain, didn't take to him at all from the start, and didn't invest in the romance with him. I could see from the start where he was trying to influence Hudson to turn against Keller, and all of human kind, I just didn't know why. But what was going on with Keller kept me glued to the pages and rooting for him. I'm completely invested in their relationship, whether it ends up romantic or not, I'm really hoping they get things worked out before they head into this war, though I'm not too hopeful of that. 

    The ending left me truly terrified of how things are going to go for these lads and their world in the next book, Rogue, but I can't wait to find out.
