About the Book: 

Rourk Kavanagh is an elite elfin warrior, and a member of a human Special Forces team. During a routine mission in Afghanistan, he crosses paths with a dark supernatural creature—a d’jinn.

His world gets turned upside down when the unthinkable happens: Keegan, his one true love, is kidnapped by an evil d’jinn. The d’jinn is seeking revenge for the death of his brother at Rourk’s hands.

Fueled by fear over the potential loss of his wife, Rourk has only one thought—embrace the rage.

Book Review: 

This was my first introduction to Rourk Kavanaugh, elfin warrior and mate of Keegan, and I am pleased to have had the opportunity. Rourk is very much an alpha male, determined to protect his wife and those around him: a trait that comes into frequent play as a soldier on deployment in Afghanistan and part of an elite unit. While his army unit has no clue of his otherworldliness, he is a valued member and leader of the team. Meanwhile, Keegan is clever and funny with curiosity to burn, the connection to Rourk is solidly portrayed, even when she is depressed by his absence.

Julia Crane pulled no punches, setting us straight into the story that will be a great test for both Rourk and Keegan. From the pain of separation from one another, into the midst of enemy territory, and the separation Rourk feels when he alone understands the threat of the Djinn, this novella was an edge of the seat read. There was a real sense of loss and pain, and the resolutions were fitting.

I received an ARC copy from the author for purpose of honest review for a book tour. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
