While all seems quiet in Gladium Province, the Morgon Guard—the global justice force for the dragon hybrid race—knows their enemy is rebuilding its forces in the underground.
Valla Moonring, an assassin for an order of the Morgon Guard, is ordered to join an expedition through the Wastelands of Aria, a formidable, icy wilderness fraught with all manner of dangers, including outlaws, deadly weather, and big-game predators.
To her great distaste, she’s partnered with a Nightwing Security operative, Conn Rowanflame, a Morgon with the aggravating ability to get under her skin. While she takes her mission seriously, Conn’s confident charm throws her off balance, a dangerous place to be in conditions like these. Especially when cold nights require close contact.
Sensual attraction binds them ever closer, igniting a passion of unexpected force—soulfire. But when the hunters become the hunted, their bond could prove perilous. Even fatal…
Juliette, just keep these amazing books coming! People we have another badass heroine among us and her name is Valla, who just happens to be the younger sister of Kol and she’s an assassin. And as stubborn as a bull, pair that up with someone that’s just as stubborn, you’re bound to have some major tension ignite between the two.
Gahhhhhh, loved this addition to the Vale of Stars series. Valla is definitely one of the fiercest of them all and being raised by Kol, she’s not exactly in touch with her emotional side when it comes to love. She was taught to be independent and to never rely on anyone. But sometimes that road can be a lonely one to walk and Conn does his best to show her that. Conn and Valla are such a delight to read about and they’re absolutely hilarious together. I kept wishing so hard that Valla would just give in to what could be between them. All they need to do is be honest with each other and share how they feel, although I feel like Conn was a bit more open about it, anyways.
I really loved Conn and his personality as a whole. He definitely knows how to kick up the charm and it’s something you can’t resist. What was Valla thinking?! I was game for the constant pushing of Valla’s button, it was so evident that he wanted her to just give in and we were all rooting for him.
I don’t know what it is but I’ve been loving watching these fiersome and alpha men fall in love. It definitely makes my heart feel all warm and fuzzy.
Besides all the awesome tension and romance, the underlying story continues. More questions are answered and some crazy revelations are brought up. It’s so darn intriguing and I’m just dying to know what will happen next.
Cross, you’ve done it again and again with this series. It has easily become one of my favorites for this genre!
