The Shadowdwellers live in a realm of darkness and sensuality, where order is prized and sin must be punished. Yet for Magnus, the head priest of Sanctuary, salvation rests with the one woman who can entice him to break every rule. . .

She Was The Ultimate Temptation

Magnus is a man of contradictions--a spiritual leader in a warrior's body. To him, laws are for enforcing and visions must be followed--even if that means freeing a beautiful slave and making her his reluctant handmaiden. Betrayed once before, Magnus can barely bring himself to trust another woman. Yet Daenaira's fiery innocence is drawing them both into a reckless inferno of desire.

Daenaira grew up hearing tales of a fearsome priest who seemed more myth than reality. But Magnus is very real--every inch of him--and so is the treachery surrounding them. Beneath Sanctuary's calm surface, an enemy is scheming to unleash havoc on the Shadowdwellers, unless Magnus trusts in a union ordained by fate, and sealed by unending bliss. . .

I found the notion of sex education for the young taken to a laughable and quite silly extreme but otherwise the book was really pretty good. I like how the Shadowdwellers and Nightwalkers series tie in to each other. This book is not for the chaste-minded or faint of heart; the sex is raunchy, the fights can be ugly. I liked the plot very much and I particularly liked how Daenaira's character developed. I also thought her 3rd power (Berserker) was great. I like this series and I liked this book better than the 1st book.
