Galena Margolis, a brilliant scientist with a tragic past, is determined to fulfill her destiny and develop the vaccine that could save millions. Yet when Galena’s test subjects meet with foul play, it’s clear that someone is still determined to stop her, and that Galena herself is a target. As the Ferry empire forges a plan to keep her safe, Declan Ferry, the politics-hating black sheep of the family, steps forward to protect her—but the emotional cost may be more than either of them is willing to pay.
As unknown enemies close in, it becomes terrifyingly clear that they threaten to destroy not only Galena’s lifesaving work but also the very fabric of fate. As Galena and Declan race to uncover the traitor, they also forge a special bond that could save both Galena and those she’s sworn to help. Torn apart by the past and hunted by those she trusted, can Galena find room amidst her fears for a passion that could make her stronger than ever? And even if she and Declan can find their way together, will it be enough to keep the future from coming apart at the seams?
Like all of Ms. Fine's work, I adored Marked, she never ceases to amaze me with the intricate beautiful and dark worlds that she creates. Worlds so tangible they become real.
Having fallen in love with both Dec and Galena from book one, I was eager to learn more about them, especially about Galena and her past. I knew it would be a horrible story, heartbreaking even, but I couldn't wait to delve inside her genius mind and even more so in the quieter sexy mind of Dec.
Knowing that I would get glimpses of Eli, Cacy, Trevor, Moros, and several others from the first book, was just icing on the already temptingly delicious cake.
This was every thing I knew and was hoping it would be.
I adore this series. There is just something...magical about it.
IT was every bit as horrifying and wonderful to delve deeper into Galena's past as I thought it would be. And Dec was every bit as delicious and swoon worthy as I knew he would be from the first book.
The glimpses of Cacy and Eli were perfect and I loved their roles in this. Where their relationship was headed and there interactions and part in this series. I still love them every bit as much as I did in the first book.
Once again the level of hotness and sexual tension was the perfect blend of imagination and description and every bit as wonderful as its predecessor.
The danger is greater and the stakes have risen and with all that happened between Dec and Galena, the twists, the chaos, and the level of seriousness has risen. People aren't always who they seem to be and anyone is fair game.
I am so very excited about where this series is headed. I want to know more about Moros and the fates and even about the ice queen herself. I really hope the next book is hers because I would love to go deeper inside her icy facade.
Ms. Fine is doing an amazing job at keeping this series imaginative, from the world she created right down to the characters that live in it. With just the right amount of action, romance and heat that is undeniably hard to resist.
