Once the night comes . . .
Will Thorne is living a nightmare, his sanity slowly being drained away by a force he can't control. His talents have made him the perfect assassin for hire. But as he loses his grip on reality, there is no calming him—until he finds his next target: the mysterious Holly Evernight.
Love must cast aside the shadows . . .
Holly cannot fathom who would put a contract on her life, yet the moment she touches Will, the connection between them is elemental, undeniable—and she's the only one who can tame his bouts of madness. But other assassins are coming for Holly. Will must transform from killer to protector and find the man who wants Holly dead . . . or his only chance for redemption will be lost.
Evernight by Kristen Callihan
I know it seems lately I’ve been on a Steampunk binge and I kind of have but only because all these incredible series are coming out with the next installments. I count Darkest London one of these must follow series so of course I jumped at the chance to read Evernight. For those of you who haven’t read Callihan, this series is a mix between steampunk, magic, fantasy and paranormal with a strong romantic content. Yes, everything I love in my reads.
Once again, Callihan provides a high velocity, action packed, adventure with deep characters that you can really hold onto.
Holly was captured, tortured with the atrocities she had to perpetuate and is living a life of seclusion. Will, a demon, was one of the atrocities Holly created. He is tortured by the changes and has a singular goal, kill Holly.
Strong chemistry and an utterly imaginative storytelling, makes Evernight a wonderful read and an excellent addition to the Darkest London series. I have to tell you the story was really enjoyable but the last ¼ of the book was truly outstanding, pulling me in and making me feel like part of the story.
I received this ARC copy of Evernight from Forever (Grand Central Publishing)in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication August 26, 2014.
