Synopsis:

There’s a thin line between love, hate, life and death in this vampire bodyguard paranormal romance from M.A. Grant, author of The Prince of Air and Darkness.

Cristian Slava and Atlas Kincaid despise each other. At least, that’s what they need everyone to believe. In truth, the charismatic vampire and his fierce bodyguard are more in love than ever. But when a powerful political faction emerges and threatens Cristian’s family, the only way into their enemy’s inner circle is without each other by their side.

From Romania to New York and beyond, though apart, their blood-bond cannot be severed—but it can be used against them. When Cristian sacrifices his life to save his family and save Atlas from having his darkest secrets revealed, only faith in that bond will keep Atlas from utter despair.

And only by facing his past will Atlas be able to accept who he is and finally defeat their most powerful enemy yet… 

Death itself. 

Thank you to Netgalley, Carina Press, and the author for an eARC of this book.

Alright friends, I cannot say much about this book because it is the last in the series, but I can scream about how much I love this series.

This is one of those series that to read it with my eyes or the audiobook, this series is absolutely amazing and it will be a series that I read over and over again. The finale is no different. I don’t even know what to talk about with this book. I was so nervous for what would happen next for Atlas and Cristian and Grant really gave me exactly what I wanted even though I didn’t know what I wanted.

I don’t want to spoil anything, but I loved how this book answered so many questions that book one and two had. There were difficult moments that were tough to read and I just wanted the boys to be happy, but they did the hard work and the ending was absolutely incredible.

All I can say about this book is that you need to read this series if you like vampires and a bodyguard romance.

Rating: 5/5 stars

His dangerous magical abilities instigate unrest in the streets of Cairo that threaten to spill over onto the global stage.
