The ride of Mariah’s life began when she heard those two words whispered in her mind. How could she just ignore them, just leave him out there alone? With her wolf Salish and her dog Bear, her two constant companions she goes into the woods in search of the man she hears, the man who will forever change her life. Rathe is the most feared and the most dangerous of the Demon slayers. Ambushed by the human vampire hunters he has been wounded gravely, thinking he is to die he his thoughts and feeling go out to the ones he loves. Somehow Mariah hears and feels them as well. From the moment she decides to help Rathe, Mariah’s world is turned upside down. It seems that it is a never-ending ride of chaos and mayhem. While Rathe and Mariah begin a tentative relationship Vampire hunters, ghouls and Demon vampires constantly dog them. To top things off Jarrod the leader of the Damned Vampires has his sights on Mariah to be his mate and queen. Mariah can feel the evil in Jarrod when he seeks her mind. Since she was small Mariah knew she was different never fitting in and knowing that her daughter is just like her she must hide them and try to resist Jarrod’s mental call.
Rathe is taken aback with Mariah’s bravery and begins to loose his heart. The biggest and mightiest of them all is brought to task by a mere slip of a female. His long lonely existence ended on the night Mariah saved not only his life but also his soul. Can Mariah and Rathe find true happiness before time runs out or will Jarrod win and take Mariah as his own?
Rathe is a wonderful brooding Alpha male who loves with all his heart and will do anything to protect those he loves. Mariah is just as strong willed and loyal. She is a mother with a protective streak and when she sees others in need she steps up to the plate. As she learns what is happing in Rathe’s world knowing that she is a part of it now she steps up there as well. The bond of love and trust that develops between these two is a great read. Wend Petzler weaves a wonderful story. The reader is pulled into her sensual world from the first page. Her strong characters both male and female are full of depth and emotions. Not only is this story a hot read it is full of action and adventure with a few twists that keep the reader turning the pages to see what will happen next. I enjoyed this story and cannot wait to see if there are more stories in the works for these vampires. I would love to see one for Sergio or Alexander and Kai’s story. If you love books with lots of action and hot scenes this book is definitely one that should not be missed.
