Blurb from Goodreads: When Ahmare’s brother is abducted, there is nothing she won’t do to get him back safely. She is unprepared, however, for the lengths she will have to go to save his life. Paired with a dangerous but enticing prisoner, she embarks on an odyssey into another world.
Duran, betrayed by his father, imprisoned in a dungeon for decades, has survived only because of his thirst for vengeance. He has been biding his time to escape and is shocked to find an unlikely and temporary freedom in the form of a determined young female.
Battling against deadly forces and facing unforeseen peril, the pair are in a race to save Ahmare’s brother. As time runs out, and the unthinkable looms, even true love may not be enough to carry them through.
My thoughts: This is not a Black Dagger Brotherhood story. It is set in the world, which most of her novellas (although this was more like a novel) in this series are. The characters are unknown to her dedicated readers. Did that bother me? Not in the least. It was a fix I really needed after some difficult readings, and I breezed through it. It was good writing, good story-telling, and I’m content.
I’m hoping this break will help me get back into the other book I was reading. I do want to finish it, if just to see how it ends.
So… Have you had to take a break during a read? Did you go back to it? How’d that turn out?
