There is no mercy in the demon realm. No escape. In this place of desperation and conflict, anyone who is not pure bred is virtually powerless. Until an unlikely champion is born . . .

Annika, half-blood daughter of the Na'Reish King, longs for more than her tormented life among her father's people. Conceived in hatred and bred as a tool of retribution, she's gifted with a special talent that can heal as well as destroy . . .

With the Na'Reish vastly outnumbering them, Kalan, a Light Blade warrior, knows the future of humankind depends on him alone. Incursions into human territory and raids for blood-slaves by the Na'Reish Horde have increased. As Chosen-leader, he faces the task of stopping the demons-and convincing the Council of aging Light Blade warriors that change is necessary for survival.

When Annika learns Kalan is a prisoner in her father's dungeon, her dream of escape seems within reach. She agrees to free him in exchange for his protection once they reach human territory. Now, marked for death for helping him, Annika must learn to trust Kalan as they face not only the perilous journey to the border but enemies within the Council-and discover a shocking truth that could throw the human race into civil war . . .

This is a great, quick read for anyone that enjoys a good impossible love story. The details about this fantasy world are intriguing. I hope the library gets the second book in the series. I read the third book and liked it even more than the first. It doesn't seem to be a series that you have to read in order. The third book barely mentioned Annika and Kalan.

A great introduction to an interesting fantasy world. Liked Griffin's introduction of races and how they try to overcome what has led to years of war. The romance was also a nice touch!

I loved this paranormal romance adventure and am definitely reading the sequel when the library gets it. Nicely developed characters. Good plot twists. I hope this is the start of a long series.
