SUMMARY (from the book)
The Mayans aren’t the only ones with a 2012 prophecy… Long before recorded history, there was a warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong. The Time Untime approaches… Kateri Avani has been plagued her entire life with dreams she doesn’t understand. Images of places she’s never been and of a man she’s never seen. Her quest for answers has driven her to Las Vegas where she hopes to finally silence the demons in her mind. What she never anticipates is coming face to face with the warrior who has haunted her her entire life. Ren Waya came back from the dead to keep the prophecy he began from coming true and ending the world. For thousands of years, he has fought the same evil that once possessed him. But now that evil has brought back the one person he can’t fight. The one person who once held the most sacred part of him. His heart. But if he doesn’t kill Kateri, the deadliest of evils will reemerge and destroy everyone else on the planet. It was a sacrifice he made once. Will he be able to make it again?

MY REVIEW

A captivating plot with a good mix of romance and action is always a sign of a great story, but if you find a special character in it, that will catch your attention more than anything else. The name of such a powerful character here is Ren and his charm has nothing to do with his beauty or behaviour, but all with his background story. You can't help but feel terribly sorry for him, for all he's been through in his whole life (and we're talking thousands of years), he had to suffer so many wrongs and, most important thing, he has been denied love in all its forms. The more you read, the more you feel a deep tenderness and a desperate need to let him know that, even if it's hard to believe, someone in this world can be a decent human being.

The mythology plays a huge role in the story and it's very interesting, but I'm afraid I think it was too much. Don't get this wrong, it's all very fascinating and Kenyon's style is anything but boring, but we have lots of information to keep constantly up and the reading was slow from time to time. But despite that, I found the book enjoyable and really touching.

RATING: 3.5/5
