I have read other books by Ms. Liu and liked them. I did like this book also. The storyline starts off strong and engaging but really dwindles toward the end, which is why I only gave it a 4/5 rating. Although as far as book covers go this is one of the best ones I have seen. I like Ms. Liu and will continue to read her books. I would recommend this book to any paranormal romance fan.
*I did not know until now but this is actually the 8th book in her Dirk & Steele series.
Story (as on back of book):
Lannes Hannelore is one of a dying race born to protect mankind against demonic forces. And while those who look upon him see a beautiful man, this illusion is nothing but a prison. His existence is one of pure isolation, hiding in plain sight, with brief solace found in simple pleasures: stretching his wings on a stormy night, long late drives on empty highways, the deep soul of sad songs. But when Lannes finds a young woman covered in blood--desperate and alone, with no memory or past--he will be drawn into a mystery that makes him question all he knows. And though it goes against his nature and everything he fears, Lannes will risk his heart, his secrets, and his very soul, in order to save someone who could be the love of his life...or the end of it.
Opinion: I liked Lannes and his mystery woman but I did feel that their chemistry did not mesh exceptionally well. They both seem too vulnerable. Toward the end a lot of key players are kind of shoved in and I wished they would have been introduced sooner. Although flaws and all I still recommend.
