Blessed and cursed by their hidden abilities, the Sentinels have no choice but to live, and love, on the edge of humanity…

The Sentinel assassin, Bas, is facing the greatest challenge of his outcast existence. His young daughter, Molly, has been kidnapped. But her disappearance has brought the return of her mother, Myst, whom Bas has never forgotten–or forgiven.

Haunted by a vision that she’s destined to create a weapon that will destroy thousands, Myst was never impulsive–until she met the irresistibly handsome Bas. But with the Brotherhood, the enemy of the high-bloods hunting for her, Myst had to stay on the run, to keep her child, and the world, safe. Now, with the most important thing in both their lives at stake, she and Bas must embark on a treacherous journey to save Molly, to confront the truth of Myst’s fate–and to face their fierce desire for one another.

Quick & Dirty: A dangerous prophecy and assassin with his family in danger.

Opening Sentence: It has been over a century since the high-bloods revealed themselves to the norms.

Excerpt: No

The Review:

Bas is still reeling from the kidnapping of his daughter Molly. Her mother, Myst, dropped her off right after her birth and disappeared. But now that Molly is home safe she tells Bas that Mommy is coming for a visit. Bas is beyond shocked when Myst strolls right into his office. He not as shocked to find that he reacts to her exactly the same way as when he first met her. This time he is determined to hate, but keeps it in check because Molly is so excited.

After a few a days Bas finally gets Myst to reveal her story, not all of it, but why she dropped Molly off and why she is on the run. The Brotherhood is hunting her because she had a prophecy that she would create a dangerous weapon that would kill high-bloods. Bas contacts the Meave to make arrangements for Molly’s safety and to meet with Boggs in order to find out more about Myst’s prophecy.

The meeting goes very wrong and Bas is knocked unconscious and Myst is taken by the Brotherhood. Soon Bas is racing against time to not only stop The Brotherhood, but rescue Myst as well. Will he be able to keep Myst and Molly safe? Will he finally have the love he has been waiting for?

I give kudos to this series because I haven’t read the first two books and I was able to read this one and not feel confused at all. I am sure some of the characters, events, and story tie in with the first two, so I do recommend you start at the beginning. I loved Myst, I don’t know that I would have been strong enough to make the choices she did, but I always enjoy seeing a character that loves their child and is willing to make sacrifices for them.

Bas is total bad boy, but his love for Myst and Molly was just so nice to see. I couldn’t stop reading the story. It was fast paced and action packed. I don’t see another book listed, but that can always change. For now there are two more before this as well as two novellas.

Notable Scene:

Like Bas, who’d been borth with both the magic of a witch and the superior strenght of a Sentinel. And even more rare were those powers appeared later in life, seemingly out of nowwhere. None of the healers had explanation. It simply happened.

The Sentinels:

1. Born in Blood

2. Blood Assassin

3. Blood Lust


FTC Advisory: Zebra/Kensington provided me with a copy of Blood Lust. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review.
