Erin is a young psychologist, with no time for anything but her work, and unable to remember anything about her past. She leads an uneventful life, but a lonely one, in which she secretly wishes for a soulmate... Conner is an unusual patient who approaches her, thrusting her into a strange world of darkness that runs beneath our own. He believes himself to be a creature of legend-a werewolf. But he also draws Erin with a roguish charm, and an irresitible feeling that seems to bind them together... Conner desperately tries to save her from an unknown evil that persues her with a relentless passion that crosses centuries, an evil that once took her very soul away, somewhere in Erin's lost memories. As she becomes more entwined in a series of events that will remind her of who she really is, will she make it away from the oncoming darkness unscathed...?


I admit I got lost at first, but after a while I saw that the purpose of the author was to get you confused and this, instead of bothering me, increased my curiosity pretty much. What really kinda annoyed me was the way the characters changed subject. It was something very quick, especially when the characters didn't have the answers they were looking for, so their reactions to the events (particularly relevant) seemed a bit too superficial... But I did like how Conner undressed Erin with his eyes a lot, the mystery around the both of them and then of course their story, quite unique.

The psychological aspect plays a huge role here and it's definitely what amazed me the most. I love the fact that the reader, as the characters, can't escape from questioning everything. Is this for real? Who am I supposed to trust? Who's the bad guy? Wait, is there a bad guy or...? What if...? And these are just some of the questions that will keep rolling in your mind during the whole reading, that's why you really won't be able to put the book down.

Miranda Stork has an evil mind that fascinates me, and the fact that she used a cliffhanger like that at the end of the book, it makes me believe this is the beginning of a very intriguing series!

RATING: 3.5/5
