Throughout history, myths and legends of extraordinary creatures have been told and retold. Fantastic tales of demons and banshees, gryphons and dragons, and of course, magic. Stories that every child grows to learn are nothing more than fantasy...or are they?
Beyond the world you see lies a hidden realm, the Mythrian Realm, inhabited by all the creatures you've been told are mere fiction. Only on things lies between the humans and the truth: the Nexus. A magical barrier erected millennia ago to separate the two realms, it has stood the test of time. Until now.
For Mythrian Sha Phoenix, magic is nothing new. But when she stumbles upon a portal on the verge of collapse, her fate will forever change. Pulled through the portal into the Human Realm, she lands in the middle of Detective Connor Flynn's brutal murder scene. Soon it is obvious someone is using blood magic to try to bring down the Nexus. Together, Connor and Sha must work to unraval the secrets before the barrier falls and the realms collide.
The Nexus is breaking and all hell is about to unleash...literally.
***Warning this book contains two graphic sex scenes featuring a sexy detective***
Breaking the Nexus was a perfect mix for me. Lots of paranormal suspense/thriller with quite a good love story running right through the middle of it all. Sha's reaction when she suddenly falls into the Human Realm is perfect - and Connor's reaction to magic is right on track as well. His reaction to his first taste of it is priceless.
Working together they hope to track down the person behind some gruesome murders on the Human side, that just may be causing the portals to collapse in the Nexus. This bad guy is nasty business and they will need all of their combined skills to track him down.
I had an extremely hard time putting this book aside to get work done, and I can't wait to read the sequel.
