Overview

The author of Ghostland continues her tale of a postapocalyptic world where supernatural beings have emerged from hiding.

Held prisoner by humans, his angelic memory and power lost because of the sigil-inscribed collar around his neck, Tir dreams of freedom and hungers for vengeance. He's sworn he'll never lie with a mortal, but when Araña removes his shackles and helps him escape his captivity, she melts his icy control and leaves him burning with desire. She's a temptation he can't resist-an unknowing enemy who might well enslave him more thoroughly than the chains he's worn for centuries.

Powerful forces have brought them together to serve a greater purpose, but learning the truth of what they are will destroy them-unless their love is strong enough to overcome the dark legacy of a battle that began with the birth of mankind.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Strong revisits her postapocalyptic version of Oakland, a city torn between a supernatural-fearing church and powerful vice lords, in this intensely erotic sequel to 2009’s Ghostland. Arana, a thief who can change the threads of people’s lives, is shocked to find that Tir, a shackled immortal, is immune to her magic. Tir is just as surprised that a human woman can inflame his passion. Together they struggle to understand her gifts and learn how to unlock his collar and his memories. Arana’s acceptance of Tir’s dominance in bed jars with her otherwise preternatural competence, and the rich setting and evocative writing fail to carry along the convoluted plot or unsurprising protagonists. Those who like urban fantasy may find the sex out of place, especially given the extremely strong language, and those who like erotica may find too much else going on. (Aug.)
