Once two souls are joined...
When Adam's soul mate rejected him, there was more at stake than his heart. After seven hundred years of searching, his true match would have ended the curse that keeps his spirit in chains. But beautiful, stubborn Eliza May fled—and now Adam is doomed to an eternity of anguish, his only hope for salvation gone...
Their hearts will beat together forever...
No matter how devilishly irresistible Adam was, Eliza couldn't stand the thought of relinquishing her freedom forever. So she escaped. But she soon discovers she is being hunted—by someone far more dangerous. The only man who can help is the one man she vowed never to see again. Now Adam's kindness is an unexpected refuge, and Eliza finds that some vows are made to be broken...

Review

I loved diving back into this world.  The characters Callihan creates are full of depth and emotion.
 
I always wondered about Adam.  He is this mystical being that nobody really knows anything about, other than he’s the king of the GIM (ghost in the machine). I loved seeing a different side of him, one that isn’t quite so terrifying.  He’s so much more than what he lets others see him as.  We even get to see Lucien again.  He’s always been one of my favorite characters. He’s so colorful and full of joy, even when things seem dire.
 
And Eliza…. She learns some truths that are kind of hard for to believe. She gets the rug pulled out from under her more times than I can count. And I feel bad that she’s constantly being toyed with.  But I appreciated Sin letting her know a very important thing.  It shows how much he truly cares for her.
 
There are also glimpses of past characters.  I love how connected each of these couples are.  They love fiercely and when something is wrong they want to fix it so badly.
 
The sexual tension between Adam and Eliza is intense.  I loved seeing it scorching up the pages.  I can’t wait for the next book to see what adventures await Sin and the others.
