Hartt is an intriguing character. I originally read about him in one of the earlier books in the series and promptly wanted to know more about him. I always wondered why an elf would consider becoming an assassin, as it potentially could send them into the madness they call the darkness, where blood lust rules their lives. Hartt is a capable assassin, but when he realises another assassin is after his mark, Hartt finds himself fighting for more than his life.
Mackenzie is an assassin from a rival guild, determined to make the fledgeling business a success. I enjoyed meeting her. She is an enigma that both Hartt and the reader (me, in this case) falls in love with. She has secrets, and unravelling them is a joy. When she finds out that her client employed Hartt and Fuery's assassin guild to kill the same mark, Mackenzie is thrown into a deadly chase.
As this book is the eighteenth in the series, the world of the Eternal Mates is well known to me and the main theme. What surprises me is the ability of the author to delve into new character's lives and bring them to life on the page. I'm glad the overarching story arc has shifted a little closer towards the climax. However, I am also feeling sad that it is heading in that direction as I have enjoyed meeting the various residents in this world.
Mackenzie and Hartt are both strong-willed characters. I had great pleasure in watching their relationship grow and develop. I loved meeting the other characters in the series once more too. I'm looking forward to meeting more of them in the future.
Felicity Heaton has written another fast-paced, sexy paranormal romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. I love her fast-paced writing style, which flows effortlessly from scene to scene. She is on top of my favourite author's list.
Each book of this series could be read as a stand-alone, as this one does not end in a cliffhanger, though I would recommend reading them in order. I do not recommend this book to younger readers due to the extremely HOT and explicit sexual scenes. However, I highly recommend this book (and series) if you love sexy paranormal romances full of various shifters, elves, dragons, demons, angels and many more. - Lynn Worton...more

Heru-Pa, being a Rathadi, is about to go through an important rite where he and his sentinel become one, and he will be given his true name (Horus). SHeru-Pa, being a Rathadi, is about to go through an important rite where he and his sentinel become one, and he will be given his true name (Horus). Set is destined to reign over the Purean's. However, when the island of Atlantis is attacked by a foe long thought dead, both of them will have to face challenges that would crush anyone, never mind two twelve-year-olds.
Having read the trilogy, I was excited when I heard this book was available to pre-order. I downloaded it as soon as it became available.
I was quickly swept up into the tale. I loved the way the two boys acted, like brothers. I also liked how they grew as the story progressed. I spent most of my time on a rollercoaster of emotion throughout. I cursed the author in my head for it. However, I also thanked him because he brought the characters to life.
It's a stand-alone read, so even if you read the trilogy first, you will not face confusion. However, it explains the history that joins Alyssa's destiny. My only criticism is that I wish it was a little longer and showed Horus as a young man/adult and up until he came face to face with Alyssa. I know it wasn't possible as it spanned millennia. Nevertheless, I loved the journey from beginning to end.
M. Sasinowski is a fantastic author. As Heir of Ra was his first book, I think this author is one to watch. I love his fast-paced writing style. His characters come to life on the page, and I can picture the scenes in my mind's eye with ease. I also love the story flow, which runs smoothly from scene to scene. I've added him to my favourite author's list.
There are scenes of a sexual nature (not explicitly shown) between adult characters, and there is some violence, so I feel that parental guidance may be required. I highly recommend this book (and series) to teens and adults alike who love YA science fiction, fantasy, action, adventure, thrillers, mysteries, mythology, and romance genres. - Lynn Worton...more
