Series: Guild Hunter bk 4
Author: Nalini Singh
The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past…but Dmitri’s need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo.
Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel’s right hand, and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality…the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her.
As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting…and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more…
I have read every single one of Nalini’s book and loved them all, I have even been known to stalk her about certain books. I knew that Dimitri’s book was her next book and was looking forward to it. I wasn’t expecting what I got though. This is in my opinion her absolute best book. It will ripe your heart out, make you cry, and then put your heart back together stronger and more complete than it was before you read this book.
Dimitri is a cold hearted bastard. He knows it, and everyone around him knows it. You don’t spend a thousand years as the second to an archangel and not be. He wasn’t always this way, but in the previous books we never got a glimpse of that. We knew that there was a back story to him and Raphael some hint of a trauma with Dimitri but we never knew what.
Honor is a new character to the story and her story is one that is caught up in torture and fear. She was kidnapped and tortured by vampire’s for two months. When she is called to the Tower to work with Dmitri it takes everything in her to go. What she never expected was to begin to take her life back because of Dimitri.
I am going to be upfront with this review. I am not going to reveal a lot about these two because I think that this is one story that you have to read for yourself and watch and discover these two and how they compliment and complete each other.
It isn’t an easy rode for them. There is a lot of remembering on Dimitri’s part of his life before he was a vampire. Memories that he hasn’t had in a long time as the pain is to much. But these memories are essential to their story.
Honor has always felt that a part of her soul was missing. As she and Dimitri work to track down the person killing just made vampires and also those that kidnapped her, she begins to find the missing part of her soul and also heal from her captivity.
When I had read the very last line in this story the only thing that could think was that this is her best story. She took two very complex and damaged people and brought them together in a way that made absolute and complete sense.
If you have never read a single book by Nalini than this is a book that you should read. If you are a fan of hers and have been awaiting the story of Dimitri than you will not be disappointed at all.
