Blessed and cursed by their hidden abilities, the Sentinels have no choice but to live, and love, on the edge of humanity…
The Sentinel assassin, Bas, is facing the greatest challenge of his outcast existence. His young daughter, Molly, has been kidnapped. But her disappearance has brought the return of her mother, Myst, whom Bas has never forgotten--or forgiven.
Haunted by a vision that she's destined to create a weapon that will destroy thousands, Myst was never impulsive--until she met the irresistibly handsome Bas. But with the Brotherhood, the enemy of the high-bloods hunting for her, Myst had to stay on the run, to keep her child, and the world, safe. Now, with the most important thing in both their lives at stake, she and Bas must embark on a treacherous journey to save Molly, to confront the truth of Myst's fate--and to face their fierce desire for one another.
I have followed this series because I adore the characters and writing style, and this book was more of the same! Bas has searched for Myst since they had a fleeting 'moment' in his office. When she returned and left their baby for him to raise, he tried convince himself she was the worst. She walks in and once again turns his world up-side-down and isn't the woman he tried to believe she is. Myst had her own reasons for leaving and hiding. Now she wants to bond with her little girl and keep the brotherhood away from both of them, which is easier said than done.
I liked Bas from the last book. While he wasn't the most endearing person, he was a totally devoted father. Myst was a wonderful character. Loving mother, selfless woman and scared girl. The Mave and Tagos are in this book and wow! I wasn't expecting Bas to trust them at all but the back story helped with that. Myst's determination not to let herself be used by the brotherhood was understandable and sad. I loved the connection Myst and Bas have, while it is a craving, it is also just a need to be together.
It was a 5/5. Absolutely cannon wait to read the next book in the series.
