There was love once. Love destined to kill us if we didn’t surrender to our war.”Eleanor Grace suffers an awful affliction. She’s falling for a man who doesn’t deserve her affection or her forgiveness. But there is no cure, so she does something reckless, stupid—she throws safety to the sea and leaps into danger.
Sully Sinclair suffers the same affliction. He’s falling for a goddess who will never earn his trust or his heart if he can help it. However, he wasn’t prepared for the lengths she’d go. How far she’d push to either stop such a bond or kill them both trying.
An elixir given to a monster.
A goddess running for her life.
An ending neither of them can survive.

Around 90% in the book I was thinking that things were settling down and the rest of the series would then be tamer when bang! A huge plot twist happened threatening everything!
That’s certain that Pepper knows how to hold her reader’s attention!
This is extremely difficult to review this series without giving away any spoilers!
What I learned here is that Sullivan is extremely complex. He sees life in black and white, no shades of grey. Following his reasoning and doubts showed the depth of his past trauma and how it made the man he is now.
Sullivan did terrible things in his past and is more than a morally grey character. Yet Eleanor has been drawn to him since the first day! Sparks are still flying like mad between them!
The chemistry is off the chart and you will need a cold shower more than once!
Their relationship is a real roller coaster here and nothing, I repeat nothing, is settled, even when we think it will be!
What I do love too in this series are some philosophical questions about our choice to eat meat or not, how we treat nature and animals. This all adds an added layer to the rubik’s cube that Sullivan is!
If you have read Pepper’s books before, you know that she can go on the dark side but none of her previous books and series is as dark and twisted as this one!
And of course, we are left on a huge cliffy so I want, no, I NEED the sequel now!

Afraid of what she’d make me become.
Afraid that there was no turning back from this…regardless if I was ready or not.
Adrenaline rushed through my bloodstream as I locked my knees and closed my eyes.
I didn’t know why I was afraid. Why standing before Eleanor with my arm outstretched made me feel defenceless, exposed, and utterly at her mercy.
Seconds ticked past, making me bristle and my stupid heart double-beat.
I needed to see. To look at her. To know what the hell she was doing.
But the softest feather touched my hand, followed by another on my forearm.
Potent and powerful and perfect.
