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 Cain now. A deadly enemy bent on destruction is closer than they realize—and only they can keep chaos from ruling the world.
Comment: This is the 9th novel in the Eternal Guardians series. The adventures of a mixed group of supernatural beings and their fight against evil forces goes on in this story where the main couple is a pair of Weres, where the girl, Cassandra, is a prophet.
This book features Caine and Cassie.
Caine was a bad guy before, he tried to use magic to become a real werewolf instead of a cur, someone human changed into a werewolf. He also used violence and not so good methods to get his way. However, he was deceived too and learned from it. He decided to protect Cassie not only because something in her calls to him, but also because he feels it's the right thing to do after so many bad deeds.
Cassie is another of the four werewolf twins born. She is know for being a prophet and has been recently rescued from one of the villain's clutches. Se often goes anywhere her visions take her but she doesn't really know how interpret them. She isn't the best with social behavior but leaned to lean on Caine and her feelings for him have developed since they got together.
So, this book keeps up with the things happening since the first books. It had many sub plots added but finally the 4 sisters are rescued and happy with mates they love.
In this book the really bad guy on the scene since the last books has been beaten and by an unsuspected rival, no less. It will be quite the surprise, I'm sure.
This means the author has been tidying up plot lines and is now ready to keep the main storyline of wining fights against evil in a more larger dimension, I mean, the villains we knew are gone so I assume someone new will show up in order to keep the pace for the remaining characters - that we know must be next to have a story - to have something to fight against. I'm a bit curious about how that will be and thinking about who's next I assume some bad vampires, but let's see...
The romance in this book wasn't so bad I thought. They knew each other from books before, we knew they felt attracted, that they had a connection but they didn't take that next step until this book, so this means it didn't look rushed. I liked them, although some scenes between them were quite the cliché, but oh well, it's to be expected.
What I think was the best thing about this book is the way all the previous characters showed up to the final battle. Their books weren't just to get things over, it suited their power plays and abilities and it was fun to see them all together now despite the differences and the animosity among some of them in the past. Now they're joined in a common cause and goal and I liked how they all seemed important in a way, and their presence meant something even fr those with smaller tasks.This isn't a book to think about or to origin philosophic thoughts.It's also not big on plot twists so people should read it thinking that. It's pure entertainment and it has to be seen like that. I liked it and it's part of a series I didn't think I'd like to keep up with but now I'm glad I did because it did offer many hours of fun reading.
