In the hospital ER where she works, Mary is used to chaos. But lately, every aspect of her life seems adrift. She’s feeling disconnected from herself. Voices appear in her head. And the vivid, disturbing dreams she’s had all her life are becoming more intense. Then she meets Michael. He’s handsome, enigmatic and knows more than he can say. In his company, she slowly remembers the truth about herself . . .
Thousands of years ago, there were eight of them. The one called the Deceiver came to destroy the world, and the other seven followed to stop him. Reincarnated over and over, they carry on—and Mary finds herself drawn into the battle once again. And the more she learns, the more she realizes that Michael will go to any lengths to destroy the Deceiver.
Then she remembers who killed her during her last life, nine hundred years ago . . . Michael.

I hadn’t read anything about Thea Harrison before, but the blurb of this book got my attention so much that I couldn’t resist any further. At first, it was a bit hard to read because I found the plot being a bit slow . . . It got me a good hundred pages to be really involved but, after that, my read quickened and I started to understand characters and backgrounds better. Of course, there’s still a lot to learn to have a clearer vision, but I’m positive more answers will come with the second instalment.

From the moment Mary encounters (has been rescued by) Michael, it’s clear it won’t take long before something happens between the two of them, but the process may not be that simple after all . . . Mary is stronger than everyone thought her to be (probably even the reader) and she seems to gain memories—who knows, perhaps even something more—of her previous lives pretty fast, but what if a past event makes Michael appear like the bad guy? Embrace yourselves, my sadness was towards him more than Mary!

The plot is complicated but very dark and fascinating, and now I want to know more about those creatures, their abilities and reincarnations.
