This story is set in the Horde Wars universe.
Cady and Obsidian, two greatly revered Shikar Warriors, know they share a love like no other. A love that will last forever. A love not even Death can interrupt.
And now it’s time to put that love to the ultimate test…for Death is on its way.
After years of marriage, Cady and Obsidian are still going hot and heavy. You would think they were still on their honeymoon from the way they cannot seem to keep their hands off of one another.
This story kept my interest the entire time. These two are blissfully married from page one and I enjoyed watching them interact with each other. It was refreshing to see a couple who has been together so long still as madly in love with each other as if they had just met.
Sacred Eden also had a great supporting cast that, in the end, were willing to do whatever it took to help out their friends. I especially liked the Traveler with his mysterious know-all ways. I guess I have always had a thing for dark, mysterious men.
Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed by the ending of this story, which left me with too many questions. I was confused about why the story seemed so incomplete. Then I checked and learned this was the fourth story of a series, which was something I hadn't known going into it. I assume that these questions are answered if one reads the entire series, but it would be nice if the reader were alerted before starting the book, but at least a notation on the cover.
However, the undying love between Cady and Obsidian is remarkable. Throughout the entire story, even when they are bickering, I could tell how much they loved one another. This is even more evident when they have to battle the daemons. The fact that both are more concerned with their spouse instead of themselves, and their willingness to die alongside each other knowing they could not survive if they could not be together spoke volumes to me. I guess in the end I am just a sucker for romance and this story definitely has it. So if you enjoy reading about a happy, loving couple who indulge in plenty of steaming hot sex, then Cady and Obsidian may have what you want.
