They’re caught between the fates of two worlds—and saving both realms may mean losing each other.
Moira Naesatra has never felt like her fighting skills are up to par with the rest of her fae clan. Maybe that’s why she runs a bakery in Pasadena, where human customers buy her mouth-watering confections… and receive a dose of positive magic as a bonus. When a dangerous side of her magic surfaces in dreams and premonitions, she has to rely on the angel Uriel to help her find and protect the source of sacred magic for her people.
Even though Moira has never felt drawn to anyone like she is to Uriel, his vast knowledge is unnerving, particularly when it comes to her past and the magical abilities she has yet to unlock. Moira doesn’t know if she can trust him with her heart when they’re on such uneven ground. For now, she has no choice.
Cursed by his celestial father to lose his soul mate centuries ago, Uriel Connor serves as a human lawyer and as a heavenly arbiter between Eden and Hell. He thought he would be alone forever—until he meets Moira, an unwittingly seductive fae whose magic is more powerful than she can know. Moira is the key to possessing a stone sacred to the angels, and Uriel knows he must reclaim this relic from the sidhe, even if it seals their fate.
As they close in on the fairy grimoires Moira seeks, Uriel is torn between his desire to claim Moira and his duty to the otherworld realms. No matter what he chooses, the cost of preventing catastrophe will be higher than either one of them can bear…
The blurb for this book sounded great but the story itself is overly complicated and hard to follow. While the blurb specifies Nordic Mythology there is heavy reference to Greek, Irish and Christian mythology. I just couldn’t keep it all straight.
I don’t like when dual POV is done in first person. It can be very hard to follow who’s POV it is and when the story is already complicated it just leaves me frustrated.
I read to escape and this book just had me lost. It’s a miss for me.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
