Hannah Green wants her life back. In the past three years she’s gone from promising graduate student to patient in a mental hospital. Now, she’s being held prisoner by a terrifying group of men who believe she has a mysterious power. She wants to think they’re wrong, but something inside her has changed. If only she could use her p0wer to set herself free.
Conner’s entire life, he’s played by the rules. He’s a soldier. A leader. He knows better than anyone that contact with the Shadows is forbidden. So when a midnight phone call demands he rescue one from a nest of demons, he has no intention of following through. Until he sets eyes on Hannah. Brave, beautiful and determined to survive. Conner can’t walk away.
When you’ve worked so hard to make the right choices, temptation can be a kind of torture. Conner knows he should turn Hannah over to the Shadows. Hannah wants to be grateful for her rescue and let Conner go. But when love and desire bind two strangers together, they have to choose between what they think is right and what they know they need.
This is the first novel of the Warder series and it starts out with a bang! Hannah is a normal girl, she’s in college, everything seems good. Then shes gets these headaches and buzzing, and they put her in a hospital, to find a treatment for her, except there’s nothing wrong with her to treat. And since her mother died, she’s having a really hard time. The her stepdad who used to be a good person, holds her captive and totrtures her, it’s horrible. And then in walks the big HAWT piece LOL Conner is a Warder hunter, he hunts the demons who possess humans. He gets a call that a shadow, another warrior who’s on the other side, is in need of rescuing. So, Hannah doesn’t k now she’s a shadow and knows nothing about his world either, but he must save her. Warders and Shadows are almost enemies, they shouldn’t interact. So, he’s stuck between a rock and a hard place. LOL It’s ok, the hard place blows up hahahaha. There’s a lot going on here, and the world building is really cool. There’s a good bit of back story, but not info dumps. Vorati demons are on the loose and now that we are learning more about them as well, they are dangerous. And now we also know why Shadows and Warders aren’t friends anymore. But Conner and Hannah have a wonderful little budding relationship and I look forward to more of them!! And the demons, they want Hannah, badly. And I love Conner’s BFF Kiernan, I want him, and the next book is about him 🙂 4.5 PAWS!!
About Molle McGregor
Molle’s writing career started when she was seven and suffered terrible insomnia. Night after night she couldn’t sleep until long after mid-night, only to wake a few hours later. Frustrated with her inability to just go to bed, (and her penchant for sneaking a book and a flashlight under the covers) her grandmother said, “You like to read so much, why don’t you tell yourself a story until you fall asleep.” With this brilliant advice, Molle’s overactive brain was off and running. Now, years later, she’s finally taught herself to sleep, but she’s never stopped telling stories.
When she’s not reading, writing, or staring into space making things up, Molle is getting into trouble with her husband, two sons, two dogs and vicious attack cat in the mountains of North Carolina. She likes to hike, cook, listen to music way too loud, and hang out with her boys. She does not like dusting or emptying the dishwasher.
