Amazingly, Kresley Cole has topped herself with a new Lore hero! Malkom Slaine, a vemon (1/2 demon /½ vampire), is damaged by his troubled past and has spent centuries being haunted by the beatings and betrayals he has had to endure. He lives for vengeance. Once you betray him, you pay. Enter Carrow Graie, party witch extraordinaire with her own damage. Carrow has been captured by The Order, an evil group rounding up immortals for their own nefarious reasons. The Order threaten to kill Ruby, Carrow's orphaned neice, if Carrow doesn't lure Malkom to the Order. Even though neither speaks the other's language, they are able to communicate. Many LOL moments with Malkom and Carrow "negotiating" in sign language! Though Carrow is falling for her vemon, she knows she must save Ruby. Yet another betrayal for Malkom, who is mesmerized by his mate. Will Malkom be able to forgive Carrow, just when she realizes she can't live without him? Whether he forgives her or not, Malkom's not about to let her go and will go to any lengths to keep her.
Malkom Slaine has a problem with betrayal. He was once one of three rebel leaders against the Horde until one of his compatriots played Judas and betrayed Malkom and his best friend to the Horde. Then he gets turned into a Vemon, and his friend tries to feed on him.
So he doesn't take it well when his destined female, Carrow, is forced to betray him in order to save the life of a little girl named Ruby.
Carrow was promised freedom for her and Ruby if she brought back Malkom. She doesn't trust the organization to free the two of them. She does however trust them to go through with their threat to torture and kill Ruby if she doesn't comply with their demands.
Be prepared for the screen debut of La Dorada, the Queen of Evil, and the return of everyone's favorite nutjobs Nix and Conrad.
