A stolen destiny. An impossible quest.
Kara Valari has broken one of the underworld’s highest laws and is serving the ultimate sentence. But nothing—not even the impossible quest of breaching the boundaries of hell and facing off with Hades himself—will keep Maximus Kane from rescuing her. The journey will demand all of Maximus’s courage…and help from an unlikely guide. Driven by love, he sets off into a dark realm he only knows from the tattered pages of Dante’s Comedy.
In hell’s bleak world, every part of Kara’s soul is subjected to Hades’s morbid fascination and merciless assault. Giving in to his demands means sharing the intimate details of why she dared to disobey him—a love for Maximus that, even now, burns on in her heart. Just when Kara resolves herself to an eternity of her nightmare, she discovers a glimmer of hope…a way to glimpse her beloved. Could her visions of Maximus unite them once more, or are they just another twisted punishment for her in a kingdom designed for agony?
In those fleeting moments of light and passion, Kara rekindles her fight to survive. Darkness may still separate her from Maximus, but they’re connected by fate. But can their love survive this storm?
“Just remember, Kara, that everything you see…everything you are…all your gifts, all your extra senses…are mine.”
ARC REVIEW ➞
I have been dying for this book after finishing book two and jumping back into the world of Maximus and Kara.
Maximus is trying to find Kara and it is not an easy journey, but he knows that it is worth it if it means that Kara will be back with him and she is safe form Hades. The journey is full of twists and turns right up until the very end. The love between Maximus and Kara is one that is truly written in the stars and their love extends beyond the real world. I couldn’t get enough of these two!
I love all the Greek Mythology that is referenced throughout this story and the entire series. It is a great addition and just adds so much to the story and to the world that has been created by the authors. I hope there is more in this world in the future!
If you’re looking for a romance that has fantasy elements and mythology this is one to read.
