And many dangerous obstacles.
Each year fifty people from the Dark Medallion territory are chosen to go on a mission. A deadly one. Communication is key to the survival of not only my life but my team’s lives too. Including the green-eyed boy turned handsome power machine I gave up on three years prior. Fighting our way through the Light Medallion territory should be easy, or so I thought. My mind got clustered with memories of my time with Phoenix resulting in my team getting captured.
It was in the Light Medallion territory that I found a piece of myself I didn’t know I was missing. With a blue-eyed blonde God by my side, we made a plan and executed it with a few flaws. Now we just need to make the Medallion whole and unite our people.
The world was split up, light on one side and dark on the other, and they wanted what the others had. Xena is the daughter of the leader on the Dark Medallions side. She is excited to be a leader in this year’s mission. She has a history with a certain man, Phoenix, which tends to cloud her mind. He somehow ends up on her team. This book is action-packed with life-and-death moments and dark dreams. We get a lot of history in the first few chapters.
Finally, we get Phoenix’s point of view. I like that he cares but is a little hot and cold. Things get steamy very fast despite the life-threatening mission. This is genuinely fantasy. Xena is damaged, but she is also a heroine. Xena is more bipolar than Phoenix, with a choice I didn’t see coming. And a sudden interest that makes her look like a wanton woman. More daring escapes and, of course, sizzling ménage as we ride along on this dystopian adventure.
This book ends very neatly, with all loose ends resolved. It is a stand-alone with a complete ending with nothing left to figure out or do for this trio.
I loved Xena’s badass heroine character, even with a bit of a damaged mc vibe. Phoenix absolutely caught my interest. I was so busy reading and not wanting to miss a moment of this action-adventure story that I only took a few notes on this one.
