Set in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress World, ancient deities are poised to wreak havoc, unless vampires Veritas and Ian can stop them … in this thrilling Night Rebel novel!
A gift from the gods…
Veritas and Ian have finally defeated their worst enemy, but the power it took to pierce through to the netherworld has unexpected consequences. Soon, Veritas is forced to rely on the last person she trusts---a golden deity named Phanes, who seeks far more than a temporary alliance with the beautiful vampire.
Can unleash hell…
But an escape from the netherworld soon pits Veritas and Ian against supernatural beings seeking to rule over mortals once again. Now, they must rally friends and foes alike—if the vampire council doesn’t execute Veritas first. Plus, a wedge between Veritas and Ian threatens to destroy their love. Can they stand together against the unearthly powers about to be unleashed? Or does their love—and humanity—not stand a chance?
I really enjoyed this book! I am a huge fan of Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress Universe and Ian has been a favorite character since his first appearance. It’s no surprise that I have been having a great time with the Night Rebel series featuring Ian’s character. I decided to start reading this book when I felt like I was starting to fall into a reading slump and it turned out that it was exactly what I needed to get back into the reading groove.
At the start of this story, Ian is in bad shape and Veritas is afraid that he isn’t going to get better. She asks for help from an unlikely source, Phanes. As payment for his help, she agrees to go to his home and this is when the trouble really starts. Ian shows up and he is rather unhappy but doesn’t hesitate to jump in and help out with the plan to rescue Veritas’s father. When they get back home, they realize that the situation is even worse than they had feared and it will take everything they have to save the world.
I found this book to be very exciting. It was fun to catch up with characters that I have grown to love in this universe and watching them flex a little muscle was like the icing on the cake. I loved the way this group of friends were able to work together as a team. There were a few times that I was worried that things would not work out the way that I hoped and I found myself reading just a little longer just to find out what happens next. It has been fun watching the relationship between Ian and Veritas grow over the course of the series. They always seem eager to protect each other but are learning to listen to each other and work as a team instead. Plus, they have fantastic chemistry.
I would highly recommend this book to others. I had a great time stepping back in the Night Huntress Universe for just a while. Ian and Veritas are fantastic lead characters and I am hoping to see more books in the Night Rebel series.
