The past often catches up with you, but when it's Alex Caine's past the results can be deadly.
Alex Caine has been suffering the weight of the world, and some days it's hard to even get out of bed. Alone one night, a band of Fey overwhelm him and steal him away from the mortal realm. Silhouette, desperate to save her lover, calls in Armour, but the organization seems reluctant to help.
Claude Darvill, his fragile alliance with Alex at an end, is still searching for the remains of his father, Robert Hood. In frozen wastes of Iceland, Darvill is driven by a deep-burning grudge and a need for revenge. His efforts are backed by all the considerable resources of Black Diamond Incorporated.
Silhouette must overcome her greatest fears and use all her skills to locate Alex. Even if she can find him, that's just the start of their problems.
In this third Alex Caine book, sequel to Bound and Obsidian, old enemies and new share a common goal. Alex Caine hates to be the center of attention, but he and Silhouette need to pull together as the world is threatened once more, and only Alex can save it.

This is the third book in the Alex Caine series. Alex is in bed one night and is abruptly abducted by the Fey. When Silhouette returns home to find Alex gone, she calls in Armour to help retrieve him. In the meantime, Claude Darvill is on the hunt for his father and wants revenge on Alex. Will Silhouette find Alex in time and save the world, or will his enemies be the death of him? I must admit upfront I’ve wanted to read this series for a while and jumped on the chance to read the third book even not having read the previous two. My thinking was that if the author was any good, I could for the most part jump right in. I am pleased to say he is good! I really enjoyed the characters, and I really liked how Alex was feeling down about previous events, something that made him more human and likeable, if you will. I enjoy characters that aren’t invulnerable. This book was very well-written, and I loved the plot. I do have to admit the book was a little darker than I was expecting, but that was OK. As soon as I have time, I’m going to read the first two to catch up. If you are a fan of this series, I can’t see how you wouldn’t love this latest installment. Highly recommend! Thanks to NetGalley and Ragnarok Publications for the e-copy which I voluntarily reviewed.
