Hell bent on avenging his own death, former Keeper Dev Geary eagerly accepts when the Watchers task him with returning to the human realm to discover the secret for rendering Similitude—the very thing that killed him.
But to succeed in the seven days he’s been granted, he’ll need to work with the one human who wants nothing to do with him, and who he can’t help falling for—Meda Gabriel, a cagey, street smart bar owner with a unique skill set, and maybe, the key to his mission.
With the clock ticking and the Betrayers barely a step behind, can Dev conquer his demons and find the answers the clan so desperately needs, with Meda at his side? Can love find a way, or will he be forced to abandon her and the clan, leaving them all to face imminent destruction?
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Dev Geary was a former Keeper, a man who keeps humans safe without them ever knowing that they exist. Humans can see Keepers and interact with them but once they leave it is like the Keeper has been wiped from their minds. Now I said that Dev was a Keeper, the past tense, well he was killed by Similitude but the Watchers, more good guys, have granted him 7 days to discover the secret of the thing that killed him. He is certainly revved up and ready to go but, to accomplish his mission he must work with a human woman, Meda and well she isn’t the easiest person in the world to get on with.
Meda is the most reluctant companion for Dev to succeed, especially as the betrayers are closing in. If they win this battle it will be more than just the death of Dev at stake. I really like Meda, an intelligent woman who is so very independent but the more she pushes away the more Dev falls for her. This wasn’t the plan! This is one super kick ass action read and love story all rolled into one.
A brilliant pace is set in the story with an urgency of time running out in every possible way. These are characters that I felt passionate about. A great second in the series read!
