Enter New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s darkly beautiful world of archangels and immortal power, as a pact is sealed between two souls bound by blood, stirred by desire, and driven by vengeance…
With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha’s consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.
Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster.
With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare… and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.

3.5 I have been intrigued by jason from the beginning. He was the dark, sulking enigma, among already mysterious angels. I got to know some of him in this, but it was limited and filled with so much more than his story he seemed to be put off to the side. It seemed slow at times and chaotic at others. I didn't get involved with the characters, there was something missing. I don't know what, it just lacked something that was in her other stories.
Dmitri and Honor made some cameo appearances. It was abrupt and disjointing to the story to flash to them and what they were doing. There were these intense moments and then we'd flash to Dmitri and Honor in their private setting and ??? Flash back to the tale.
Mahiya, the female in the story was an unusual mix of angel, beautiful and abused through her life, she had an unbelievable confidence. I could not believe her actions of motives, she came across to me as very unrealistic.
Even with all the conflicting feelings with this book I enjoyed it. It is the least enjoyed of the series so far. I will continue the series, this might have been the awkward transition book that leads to great things.
