Although Nina Decker’s father is one hundred percent human, her mother is not. She belongs to an ancient and rare race of people called the fae. But these fae are not those written about in fairytales, with pretty gossamer wings and fairy dust, no they are sinister, malevolent and unkind, dwelling in another realm called Nightfall. More prone to destroy than to create. Abandoned at the age of ten, to be raised by her father, Nina has never forgiven her mother for that or for ruining her father. A man of only sixty, he appears to be closer to eighty with a frail body and mind. He’s been fae-struck and is slowly fading away to nothing. This is one of the reasons why Nina has never gotten too close to any one man. She doesn’t want to seal his fate like her father’s has been.

But she can’t deny her fiery connection to Severin Saint Morgan, a sexy as hell werewolf and the alpha of the Vancouver wolf pack. He’s an Australian immigrant working at the university as an associate professor, and the publicized face of the werewolf species. He makes her blood boil with desire and makes her tremble with fear. But its only when her mother reappears with startling revelations about an upcoming war between the fae and the werewolves that Nina realizes that she may be a pawn for both sides.



Dee's Thoughts:

She is part human and part fae. She has a father she loves, who has always been her rock. She has a mother who deserted her, and literally drained the life force from her father. She has an extremely dominant, sexy alpha werewolf intent on having her in his bed, but there maybe ulterior motives. Now she is going through the change transforming her into fae, something she never wanted, but can no longer prevent. Oh and did I mention the mother she has hated for most of her life pops up to “help”. Facing all of these different emotions, possible betrayals, and an impeding war, at this point in time it sucks to be Nina Decker.

This was filled with twists and turns, action, drama, sexual tension, and more. I truly enjoyed this read, but I must say I am disappointed that is was a mere novella. Anna has created an interesting world and her story line was strong. There was so much more I would have loved for Anna to go a little deeper into and the ending is killing me. J That being said I still greatly enjoyed this quick read.

Anna, why you gotta leave me hanging!!!!


  1. I will definitely have to look into this one! Dark sided fae + werewolves = sign me up :)

  2. That looks like a really good book. I love the cover and how they made the wings from stones that were placed behind her. I haven't read a dark fae book yet but after the last fae book, it would be a good change. Great review.
