Description

Long ago, there was a mad god who almost destroyed the world.

And he is still out there, waiting…

On a cold winter's evening, Liv Stellack escapes a bad date…and walks straight into nightmare. Kidnapped and held without ransom, she's ready to use every trick in the book to escape. But her captors aren't criminals, they're Sons of Ymre, hunters of the unclean things living in the cracks of sanity and dreams—and Liv is a valuable tool in their war against the Mad God.

Erik knows the beautiful woman they've rescued can't possibly understand the danger she's in, or the fact that she's being held for her own protection. Some things can't be explained, only shown; he and his fellow Sons have to keep their precious potential alive long enough for the days to lengthen so she can be transported to another temple and learn how to fight an evil older than recorded history.

But treachery lives in the Mad God's chosen, and it's soon obvious that one of the Sons can't be trusted. Fleeing for their lives, Liv and Erik must make an uneasy alliance, depending on each other to reach tenuous safety.

That is, if the monsters don't get them first…

I love this book. Liv is not your simpering female and I am so glad. I can't wait to read more of Lilith Saintcrow's books, especially if there are more Soms of Ymre books.

Three and a half
I loved this authors Dante and Jill Kismet series but hadn't read any of her recent work until I happened to spot this. It's as unique as I expected but does kind of take its time. No not a slow build but more lots (particularly the first half) of nothing really happening. The first page grabbed my attention as our heroine just came across as bright and sassy but then unfortunately a lot of page time went on describing the various monsters. That could be good but I struggled to really imagine them as we are constantly told they cannot be truly understood by humans and frankly there are just so many types and I defy anyone to understand what a cross between a spider and a vegetable looks like!
I feel this series has lots of potential and the characters introduced and their somewhat both peculiar and ambiguous circumstances are definitely a new departure in urban fantasy. I feel Liv's life with the Sons will be a bumpy one but as I trust this author to entertain her readers I do look forward to following this journey.
This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

From cover to cover I could not put this book down. So happy to be reading a new and exciting fast paced series from Lillith St. Crow. Characters and world (ours, great twist) MC's Liv and Erik and the slowly building relationship in the midst of madness and constant action were like paranormal eye candy.
