Book #: Book 9 in the Guardians of Eternity series
Beautiful Cassandra is a Were, a prophet both vulnerable and defiant, blessed with visions that portend the fate of the world. A rare and delicate creature, Cassie must be protected at all costs. Enter Caine, a powerful cur turned pureblooded Were whose recent tangles with a demon lord have left him in serious need of redemption. Caine is duty-bound to keep Cassie out of danger—and that means resisting his potent urge to seduce her.
As Cassie’s mysterious visions lead them in and out of danger, Caine believes he has found his true mate, the woman with whom he is bound for all eternity. Cassie is both charmed and frightened by Caine’s magnetism, and unsure if he—or her feelings for him—can be trusted. But Cassie can’t afford to doubt Caine now. A deadly enemy bent on destruction is closer than they realize—and only they can keep chaos from ruling the world.
Finally, we get Cassie and Caine’s book! The last werewolf sister, Cassie, has visions- she’s a true prophet, and she’s hunted by the Dark Lord, who has eliminated all other prophets. Caine is a cur, a werewolf who was turned rather than born, who gave his life for Cassies and in this event, was turned into a pureblood werewolf. Cassie and Caine are great together, Caine is willing to die for Cassie- and has- in order to keep her safe, and Cassie needs Caine’s protection, as well as his support, to discover the real world and how things work. I really loved their story.
The Dark Lord is getting more powerful in this book, and we get much more story revolving around this evil creature, and around Gaius, who is helping the Dark Lord but is swiftly regretting that. We also have heaps of story involving the previous characters, which I also adored- having read the previous 9 books, having the other characters coming into the story is like seeing an old friend. It really enriches the story, you don’t have the previous characters shoved off to the side and never mentioned again but instead they help to shape the current story. It’s very, very good- and I loved the massive battle at the end, especially Levet’s part. Yay Levet!
