A destiny he can no longer deny - Being heir to the throne of Atlantis is not all it’s cracked up to be. Especially living under a world-altering prophecy he is powerless to prevent. Ze’Kerhia, simply known as Zeke, must now return to a life he walked away from in order to save a friend. Forced into a marriage to a woman he never met.

A brutal betrayal - One look at Laris Raail and Zeke knows he’s in trouble. He is captivated by her stunning dark beauty and grace and completely unprepared to find a dagger buried deep in his heart by the hand of his new bride.

A deadly plot revealed - After seven long months of searching, Zeke finds Laris. He's unprepared to find his wife has no memory of her past or even her name. Caught in a plot so treacherous the dark breeds and humans alike may be unable to prevent the war it would spark. It’s up to the two of them to reveal the traitor in their midst.

Can they survive long enough to prevent the slaughter of innocent lives? Or will they perish before revealing who is behind a plot to enslave the world?

The Review: I loved this book, this was the one I had been waiting for and it did not disappoint. Zeke had been on my radar since book one - what with the eyes, his tattoos and piercings and his take no sh*t attitude – we definitely had a man that hit all of the spots for me and that was even without knowing his true identity, so when that came and the prophecy along with it - I’m definitely interested. I loved what he had done for Tegan & Kyra in book two so it was so satisfying that when he came to make his sacrifice, that she would be his true mate and you could feel the connection straight away, they had chemistry – no two ways about it – and when they reached the bedroom to consummate the marriage…it was HOT! You could tell they we going to be a good couple but then everything went haywire and we are thrust seven months into the future where we see the once demure Laris/Lori working in a strip club with no memories of who she really is, that brought a great mystery to the plot because something is about to go down, someone is playing with memories, trying to start a war…. But who? And for what? This is where the storyline really comes into play as many threads are woven together to bring about one game changer of a plot because not only do we have Zeke finding his mate, falling love and getting some sexytime whilst trying to work out what is going on in order to keep her alive. We also have; missing enforcers, outing of Breeds to the public, crazy scientists with diabolical experiments, megalomaniacs, betrayal, treachery, action, battles and a world on the brink of war. It is time for our Breeds to make a stand, it is time to unify, it is time for the world to see where the Breeds really stand in the attempt to make peace with humanity and let’s just say…. It won’t run smoothly and let’s not forget that age old prophecy of a leader ‘who shall lead a great army against and ancient evil’. As I said, it’s the best in the series so far, a game changer and with the conclusion of this book, I’m dying to know what’s next for all of the characters – so bring on book 5! 

Thank you to Shannan Albright for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
