Publisher's Summary

When everything they've built is threatened, only their bond remains....

New York, 1925

Psychometric Rory Brodigan's life hasn't been the same since the day he met Arthur Kenzie. Arthur's continued quest to contain supernatural relics that pose a threat to the world has captured Rory's imagination - and his heart. But Arthur's upper-class upbringing still leaves Rory worried that he'll never measure up, especially when Arthur's aristocratic ex arrives in New York.

For Arthur, there's only Rory. But keeping the man he's fallen for safe is another matter altogether. When a group of ruthless paranormals throws the city into chaos, the two men's strained relationship leaves Rory vulnerable to a monster from Arthur's past.

With dark forces determined to tear them apart, Rory and Arthur will have to draw on every last bit of magic up their sleeves. And in the end, it's the connection they've formed without magic that will be tested like never before.

Contains mature themes.

I am in love with this series!

I loved this book. It's no surprise, since I loved the previous one. I'm already dying for the next one. (Note: this is not a standalone - book 1 is a necessary read before hitting this one.) It's super suspenseful, super sweet, often funny, and has a habit of slowing down and focusing on interpersonal relationships and Arthur and Rory's internal struggles, and then BAM, back to edge of your seat, lives held in the balance kind of danger. My only wish is that the love scenes weren't fade-to-black. There's often a super sexy lead up and then...next chapter, next morning. I just want to see the emotions and interplay. Luckily, I love the rest of the writing so much that I won't even take a star away for that. Erik Bloomquist's narration continued to be superb. It seems he can't do an Irish brogue for Mrs. Brodigan but he doesn't do an over the top fake one, so I give him credit. When Rory speaks in Italian though, Bloomquist almost makes my knees go weak. Now I just really, really, REALLY hope that the third audiobook comes sooner rather than later.
