About the Book:
Once two souls are joined...
When Adam's soul mate rejected him, there was more at stake than his heart. After seven hundred years of searching, his true match would have ended the curse that keeps his spirit in chains. But beautiful, stubborn Eliza May fled—and now Adam is doomed to an eternity of anguish, his only hope for salvation gone...
Their hearts will beat together forever...
No matter how devilishly irresistible Adam was, Eliza couldn't stand the thought of relinquishing her freedom forever. So she escaped. But she soon discovers she is being hunted—by someone far more dangerous. The only man who can help is the one man she vowed never to see again. Now Adam's kindness is an unexpected refuge, and Eliza finds that some vows are made to be broken...
Each book has gotten better, and the story never seems to end. I never want the world to end, and I fear the day that Kristen Callihan decides to close the book on this series. I have enjoyed reading every book in the series, and I hope that, if you haven’t started this series yet, that you will. It isn’t your average paranormal romance, and it certainly isn’t your average historical romance.
From the mythical creatures and those she’s invented, readers can find themselves stepping back through time to historical London. From romance to magic to action to sex, it has steam, invention, and uniqueness like no other series.
So, on to the book. As I said, I wasn’t disappointed at all. From the first time I met Adam, I was curious about his story. GIM—Ghost in the Machine—the name alone is enough to spark interest. And then there’s Eliza-May, the woman who seemed to change him. We learned so little about her, but if Adam gave notice, I knew we must too. No, there was something about this unlikely heroine, who probably isn’t as prim and proper as she appears.
But what I love, and believe me this is present in all of her works, is the dialogue. I have yet to read another author who can have her characters banter while making me laugh and shake my head. It’s comical, but it fits the story perfectly, and does what dialogue is supposed to do: entertain and crate tension.
Speaking of tension…. The tension between Eliza-May and Adam was unbearably hot. I’m still fanning myself. Ah, and although I’m a purist of sorts, you can read out of order, but for the full effect, start at the beginning. You will not be disappointed.
