This was a change from the other books in the series. It didn’t really revolve around the world of the Paladins, or their fight with the crazed Others and treacherous Regents. This instalment gave us a look into the life of a young Paladin who didn’t know he was a Paladin. One who wanted to live a normal life rather than believe that aliens are real and he was born to protect the world from them.
Following his release from prison, Emmett just wanted to live normally. Refusing to join the Seattle Paladins, he finds a job as a barman and falls in love with a feisty nurse who keeps him on his toes. It’s what he wanted, and he’s happy. However, the longer he’s in the area the more the barrier calls to him – driving him insane. This results in some dumb decisions being made, but it’s okay, he works it out in the end.
Shame it takes a crazed Other attack to make him realise where he really belongs. . .
I really enjoyed this instalment. As with all the other books, it kept me captivated. There is enough steamy romance, suspense, and action in this short story to make it a great read. My only complaint is that it was only a novella, and not a full novel. I'd like to see more of Emmett and his transition into the Paladin lifestyle.
He’s a beautiful bastard, and he seems determined to make my life a living hell. I can’t decide if I’d rather kick him in the dick or screw him, but I know what he wants to do to me. All of the deliciously sinful things that I crave.
We met by chance at a club, and the chemistry between us was undeniable. Then I started working for his mother, and he suddenly found me unworthy. Now he’s doing everything in his power to make me quit or get fired. I’m not the kind of woman to let a man walk all over her, though.
He presses all of my buttons, both intimately and emotionally. I’m torn between the need to resist him and the desire to give into his demands. If I let him have his way, though, I’ll lose everything.
