Back Cover Blurb:
Elijah, The Order’s leader, has never known true love. Tormented by his past, he has lived only to protect his race, but when he meets Jasmine his heart is captivated by her beauty and he becomes obsessed with his possession and desire for her.
As a war begins between The Order and the Phoenix League, he must face an enemy that is intent on destroying everything that matters to him, but can he protect the one thing that has become his destiny?
There is lots of background information as to where everyone came from and how they all came together. But the dialogue isn’t written the way that people actually talk. It’s missing contractions and the sense of comfortableness that friends generally have while speaking. I found that it made it hard to picture the characters.
I quite enjoyed this story and the premise but I did find that the writing style had me at a bit of a standstill. This story definitely sets readers up well for the rest of the series.
