Everything they knew is gone.
From the raging fires, five men emerge with extraordinary new powers. They must learn how to survive this dark, ravaged world . . . but they cannot do it alone.
Simon Japp will never forget his violent past.
But when civilization is all but destroyed, he sees his chance for redemption. Blessed with a strange "gift," he's determined to help the resistance against the Strangers, the mysterious force that stalks them at every turn. He can't afford to get distracted, even by the stunning, soft-spoken woman fighting by his side . . . Sage Corrigan has learned to be careful where she places her trust.
But she sees something good in Simon, even if he can't see it in himself. Posing as lovers to infiltrate a group key to their fight, they find that their staged affection soon develops into a desire that will leave them fighting for their lives in the night eternal . . .
In the continuing saga from Joss Ware’s Embrace the Night Eternal, we are reintroduced to Simon and Sage.
Simon has been battling to keep secrets of his past life to himself for a long time. He does not think he’s worthy of love after the live he’s lived before. Sage has also had a hard life because of her family history and where she’s come from. No one really cares for her except for a certain few.
Both of these characters have such a tumultuous painful past and it sure made it hard for me to read because of the angst. But kept on reading because I love the angst.
In Embrace the Night Eternal brought out much more and gave readers a better insight in the storyline of this saga. I have to say so far, Simon is my favorite hero. I love how he tries to be strong by staying away from “Theo’s woman” Sage. She is sure as hell one strong lady for not backing down and showing Simon he is worth being loved.
Another of many things I also loved was that we got to see more of Quentin and his sassy and sarcastic heroine, Zoe.
There is even more danger in this sequel… Not to mention just as we got some questions answered…we are left with more questions as new players pop up in Embrace the Night Eternal.
I don’t know exactly how many books are in this saga but I hope the next one is not the finale. I want more! Embrace the Night Eternal is just too awesome of a paranormal fantasy novel to end now with just these three novels.
Please Ms Joss Ware, write more novels for this series!!
I gave Embrace the Night Eternal 5 out of 5 Stars rating.
