This story blew me away. It is completely different from anything I’ve read before. The struggles that the main character, Grace, faces are immense and your heart aches for her at times as you read. There are times also where the urge is to smack some sense into Grace. The story of Grace, Dario and Lucian takes the reader on a roller coaster of love, hate and a hundred other emotions in between. This hauntingly beautiful paranormal romance will stay with you for a long time after you finish reading.
