Blurb: “The world is a cruel place…”
No one believes that more than I do. My name is Declan Forester, and I am a Zedian. Part of a different species born with miraculous gifts from the gods, only the humans don’t see it that way. They see us as something to be tamed.
After being captured by the humans and stripped of my abilities, I have little left. With my life in shambles, my thoughts are haunted by my human tormenter. Dr. Adam Davenport. A human male that is everything nightmares are made of.
Now, his unwilling captive in a government-run facility, I am forced to obey his every demand, or be punished. Caught up in a web of lies about gods, the push to help a hot redhead, my high running desires and, oh yeah, the pending apocalypse, I find myself falling apart. And Adam may be the only one to save me…if I comply.
Review: Long ago a god got fed up with humans and wanted to do away with them. His brother traps him in glass ball for eternity after he sacrifices his brothers mates pure soul. Now about years later the world has changed. With the sacrifice came a new species of humans called Zadian’s who have unique abilities. Humans are scared of these abilities and so rules and regulations are started.
I don’t want to give anything away in this review. My emotions were all over the place with this story. I hated Doctor Adam and his hot cold treatment of Declan. I was beginning to think he had no feelings at all. Declan is a powerful Z healer. He learns of Adam’ brother Darren who is also a Z with extraordinary powers that have never been seen before.
Not a lot is given about who Darren actually is. Darren is supposed to release the evil god that was trapped so long ago so the president can have his power. I loved this story. It’s dark, twisted and oh so good. I didn’t care for the military base compound and the lengths they went to make sure the Z’s they had to comply. It was brutal.
Never the less this is a powerful story of good versus evil that does end with a cliffhanger so to speak. Highly addictive and engaging this story will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. I am looking forward to seeing what other twists and turns happen in the next book.
