Half human, half god, Dagan Krayl is the Underworld's most powerful soul reaper. When one of his brothers is murdered, Dagan must use every ounce of his power to hunt down those responsible for his brutal death. But he must move swiftly—and carefully—if he's to have any chance of resurrecting his brother.
Yet that resurrection could wreak havoc on the mortal world. As an Otherkin, Roxy Tam has sworn to protect the human race, and it's her mission to stop Dagan. But when she sees him face-to-face, she realizes that she has seen him once before—a meeting that changed her life forever.
Neither Dagan nor Roxy expect to join forces for the sake of mankind. Or to have their loyalties tested as they struggle against the potent desire that threatens to consume them both….
Stunned when the godlike man she watched save her teenage life by ripping the hearts and dark souls out of her two would-be killers wraps her in his jacket and gives her a lollipop, Roxy Tam has no idea that 11 years later they will meet again as wary adversaries. Dagan Krayl, powerful soulreaper and demigod son of the evil god Sutekh, is on a mission to resurrect his slain brother, which could spell disaster to the world. Meanwhile, fiery, mouthy Roxy, an Otherkin and Daughter of Aset, is honor-bound to keep humankind safe. Yet things are not as they seem, and as the pieces of the treacherous puzzle fall into place and unwanted passion flares, our protagonists have no choice but to work together.
