I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Synn El’Asim is caught in the middle of a war. In an effort to save his best friend’s family, Synn and his father are captured. Synn watches as Nix has his father burned to death. When it’s his turn, his rage causes his mark to come forth. Unfortunately, Nix now wants him as her pet because his mark is the most powerful they have ever seen. Nix is relentless and cruel; Synn gives in to be free of her not knowing the price he has just paid to the devil. Will he have the strength to break the bond? Will he be able to escape?
I was completely taken aback by this book. It drew me in from the very beginning with all of the action taking place. The descriptions were so vivid, that I felt I was visiting a secret place every time I opened the book. My favorite character would probably be Keeley, because she had the power to heal, I found that really cool. Synn becomes a strong main character enduring all, and fighting for his people. Nix, well Nix was evil to the core, she only knew what she wanted and took it. I was transfixed by this book from start to finish; this is one of those great sci-fi novels that you’ll want to read again and again!
