Publisher's Summary

Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he's done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch - if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life. For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake....

Having rebuilt her life after medical 'treatment' that violated her mind and sought to stifle her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now she'll fight for her people - and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy's fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness....

Excellent

Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he’s done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch—if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life. For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake… Having rebuilt her life after medical “treatment” that violated her mind and sought to suffocate her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she’ll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy’s fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness… I loved this story it is one of redemption in true love against all odds and I highly recommend it, it took me through a gambit of emotions and I had trouble stopping listening because I wanted to know what was next.

Best book in series so far

I’ve listened to all books in series so far. This is my favourite one yet. The story has a consistent pace and a wider emotional range than the previous books. The story overall is just more compelling. The narrator does a good job except for her habit of inconsistent volume level when doing male voices. It makes the audio book harder to hear with headphones unless in a really quiet environment. Male narrators don’t tend to have that issue. I’m surprised the audio book producers didn’t pick up the volume difference with her male and female voices. An audio book is designed to be listened to on the go when outside. This narrator isn’t great for that.

Mixed bag

I keep giving this series a go, but I don’t know why. I like the concept, but I don’t think it’s delivered half as well as it could be. I found myself getting a bit bored at times, but then other bits would be good. It’s probably one of the better books in the series.. maybe? They’re sort of rolling into one so I can’t really remember. It’s an ok listen, so I tend to get another book in this series when I can’t find anything else I want to listen to.

Another good one

Really enjoyed Vasic and Ivy's story, it's incredibly sweet while the larger story of the sickness in the net added some grit and tension, I enjoyed it
