Analia has been a captive aboard the Extarga for centuries. Finally presented with a chance of escape, she stows away on the merchant ship the Marada. Sebastian, demon captain of the Marada, has just accepted a commission that includes a ward being placed on the ship. A ward that prevents anyone from entering or leaving the ship until the goods are delivered to a destination months away. When Sebastian discovers Analia, he has little choice but to let her remain aboard.
Sebastian is drawn to Analia as a demon can only be drawn to its mate. But Sebastian was deeply betrayed before by one who loved him and he’s determined to never love again. Analia remembers nothing of her life before the Extarga. She only knows she will do anything to maintain her freedom. Even if it means fighting her growing affections for the demon captain. But at the culmination of the Marada’s contract, something is discovered about Analia that will change the course of not only Sebastian and Analia’s lives, but the fate of the entire universe as well.
Wow. What an epic tale. Honestly, Iloved the first three quarters of the book. It centered around the developing relationship between Sebastian and Analia. The last part of the book I liked, but it was more focused on setting up the rest of the series. The villain-dastardly. The heroine-strong and spunky. The hero-delicious, right down to his little horns that change colors with his moods. What’s not to love. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
