But sometimes the past is best forgottena lesson that Torr may learn too late....
"Butcher's eighth Sentinel Wars paranormal (after Falling Blind) continues the prolonged battle between good and evil. Torr Maston is one of the immortal Theronai warriors charged with protecting humanity from the demon Synestryn. In a previous book, he received a nearly fatal wound, but was saved by the devoted nursing of Grace Norman, a human. Grace's memories and personality have been magically wiped clean, but she and Torr are bound by a talisman she used to save his life, and once they meet again she starts to recall their forbidden love. Now they must find a way to overcome the obstacles to romance between different races while simultaneously thwarting a demon invasion. The sizzling love scenes and violent attacks are emotionally intense, but there's not much story to hold them together. Agent: Nephele Tempest, Knight Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
