Evernight (Darkest London #5) by Kristen Callihan
Synopsis: Once the night comes . . .
Will Thorne is living a nightmare, his sanity slowly being drained away by a force he can’t control. His talents have made him the perfect assassin for hire. But as he loses his grip on reality, there is no calming him—until he finds his next target: the mysterious Holly Evernight.
Love must cast aside the shadows . . .
Holly cannot fathom who would put a contract on her life, yet the moment she touches Will, the connection between them is elemental, undeniable—and she’s the only one who can tame his bouts of madness. But other assassins are coming for Holly. Will must transform from killer to protector and find the man who wants Holly dead . . . or his only chance for redemption will be lost.
Review: Delicious, evocative, witty, passionate, and beautifully well-crafted story. Love it. This installment has the best witty banter between the two main characters. I loved watching them spar with each other. There were quick back and forth moments that made me smile and laugh. Callihan surpassed the other books in the dialogue between the two main characters alone, but through the conflict and the heart-wrenching conclusion and their sacrifice at the end, just made this SO good to read. I mean, damn it was awesome! I think the series just gets better. There are only two books left and I can’t wait to dive into them. Adam and Sin still have to find their happy ending and the addition of the Fae as the villains’ ups the anti. No more are we dealing with just demons or angels but now the Fae and they are not the good kind of Fae either. The series has a great blend of history and paranormal elements that come together to make an enjoyable story and a world to get engrossed into.
