Emeralds, Vampires and immortality all this and more are included in this book. Alys is an archaeologist that lives for her work. She never expected nor did she long for romance. Yet when she meets Beaumaris she cannot seem to shake her emotions.  The two make a wonderful couple. Alys may fall for Beaumaris but she is still able to stand up to him. The sparks fly between the two from the start and only get hotter as the story goes on.

Not only do we get Alys and Beaumaris’s story but you are also treated to the happenings going on around them. Things are going on at the Knights Realm Stronghold. Knights and traitors, a human is trying to get a job at the castle and so much more. This story is full of action and may seem a little scattered at times but everything comes full circle in the end.

Alys thinks that she may have found a significant and historic find but the Darkyn know what she is coming close to finding. She is about to unearth the emeralds of immortality. Not only must Beaumaris keep an eye on her work it seems he must also keep Alys safe.

I am a big fan of this author and of this series. I was pulled in in right from the start and fully enthralled all the way to the end of this book. The author does a great job of bringing the characters and their world vividly to life. As we get to read Alys and Beaumaris’s story we also get to visit with some characters from previous book as meeting new ones.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
