Love in the Dark & the Light


Usaeil's threat to the Fae is stronger than ever and the Reapers need all of the allies they can get. However, she's got two of their own in her clutches. Bradach, who has a healthy dose of hate for all dark fae, is chosen to locate Usaeil in order to rescue Xaneth. He's got to rely on the knowledge of Maeve the Merciless, a dark fae with a reputation that precedes her, because she's got information about Usaeil they wouldn't get otherwise. She's everything he's supposed to hate. So why is he so drawn to her?

I'll be honest, although I wasn't really lost while reading this story, I do believe that it would have been a better experience if I had read all of the stories that came before it. I'm intrigued by all of the characters who played a part in this book. While Bradach and Maeve were the spotlight couple who stole the show, I couldn't help but want to know more about Death and her mate, the Reaper general, the dragon kings, etc. Between the continued world building, the history, the battle scenes, the friendships, the intricacies of what the reapers do, and the love found amidst it all, I'm definitely going to be reading the other stories.

I highly recommend this book to fans of the fantastical and lovers of romance. Maybe just read the other ones first 😉


There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…

My duty to Death drives me forward. I've never once strayed from my path – not even when the future seemed uncertain. However, Maeve's intelligence, cunning and determination challenges me in ways I never imagined. Finding out what she knows is the key to learning how to conquer our enemy. The Dark Fae breathes new life into me unlike anything I've ever known. For Maeve, I will risk trusting the Dark. For her...I will battle darkness itself.
