When the gods come calling, you don’t get to say no.
Patrick Collins is three years into a career as a special agent for the Supernatural Operations Agency when the gods come calling to collect a soul debt he owes them. An immortal has gone missing in New York City and bodies are showing up in the wake of demon-led ritual killings that Patrick recognizes all too easily from his nightmares.
Unable to walk away, Patrick finds himself once again facing off against mercenary magic users belonging to the Dominion Sect. Standing his ground alone has never been a winning option in Patrick’s experience, but it’s been years since he’s had a partner he could trust.
Looking for allies in all the wrong places, Patrick discovers the Dominion Sect’s next target is the same werewolf the Fates themselves have thrown into his path. Patrick has been inexplicably attracted to the man from their first meeting, but desire has no place in war. That doesn’t stop Patrick from wanting what he shouldn’t have. Jonothon de Vere is gorgeous, dangerous, and nothing but trouble—to the case, to the fight against every hell, and ultimately, to Patrick’s heart and soul.
In the end, all debts must be paid, and Patrick can only do what he does best—cheat death.
This was a very immersive urban fantasy where supernatural creatures, mythological creatures and humans coexist.
Patrick is a mage with a heavy military background, working for the SOA (Supernatural Operations Agency). On his way to Hawaii he stupidly answers his phone and gets called back to NYC to investigate a murder scene, a gruesome sight… One of which he recognizes somewhat.
In this first book of the series, Patrick meets Jono (who I completely adore), a werewolf without a pack, whom he has an immediate attraction to. Little does he know how connected the two will soon become.
There is literally SO MUCH that happens in this book. You are bombarded on all sides with information and action, and I will admit that it is too much to comprehend at times. But, ultimately, this was one hell of a book.
The magic system in this is crazy immersive. The world she creates is hectic, but so freaking good. I have a feeling, though, that I will enjoy the next book (and the following books in the series) so much more.
I listened to the audio book and I really loved the depth Gary Furlong goes with his character voicing. I mean Jono’s accent alone was enough for me!!
