Overview:After her father dies, Rachel realizes she is scared and stuck. Scared of heights, of cars, of disasters harming the people she loves. Stuck in a life that is getting smaller by the minute. Stuck with a secret she has kept all her life: Someone has been watching over her since birth. Someone who tends to show up when she needs him the most. Someone she believes is her guardian angel.
Eaden is a 1,500-year-old immortal who wants to die. Drained by a life stretched too thin, he has requested his final reward – a mortal sacrifice bred specifically to bring him death. But something went wrong. Rachel’s ability to grant death has mutated in ways that threaten to upset the uneasy alliance between mortals and immortals. And utterly beguiled, Eaden discovers that although Rachel is the key to his death, because of her, he no longer wants to die. And he will do anything to protect her.
Swept into a world of legends, caught between the warring political factions of immortals, and carrying the future of mortal kind in her flesh and bone, Rachel must risk everything to save her world and the man she loves.
My thoughts:This was a brilliant book! I started it late yesterday after noon and was finished before bed. It skips around a bit in the beginning but is worth the chaos and the waiting for it to straighten out!
I love how she makes the character, Rachel, so full of anxiety, but at the same time brave enough to confront this stranger that has been a big part of her life. The way the relationship between Rachel and Eaton, the stranger, blossoms is absolutely beautiful. The story is the right combination os danger, romance, jealousy, and the unfathomable.
