Valyn enjoys the snow-covered city of Tromsø, Norway, because of the long nights, and the northern lights that bring more than just color to the skies above. As a siren, the energy that floods the city beneath the strong pulses of the aurora are both needed for magic and sought after for intense pleasure.
During the winter, the urge to be claimed drives many of the mythical populace. It is Valyn’s third winter without a partner, and the overwhelming need for sex is almost too much to bear. Until his search in an underground club leads him to an incubus named Jakai. Finally, after so long, Valyn has found the man to share his life with. Jakai is mysterious, but kind, and the sex is far more erotic than Valyn ever imagined it could be.
But in the deep dark, there are things that crawl through the snow. The fae are far less civilized and out for blood. When Valyn spots a terrifying figure in Jakai’s yard, the peace in Tromsø begins to break apart — and the fae’s presence is just the beginning.
Review: So, I received this in exchange for an honest review. It's in my preferred genre but it's not exactly my usual read. It's shorter and the pace is very fast. It seems more like a serial than a standalone. The writing itself is good and the premise of the story is also good. It simply moves much too fast. Valyn is a male siren looking for his mate. Jakai is an incubus who winds up being his mate. The instant knowledge of a fated partner can be a bit jarring, especially as the story progresses and you notice that Jakai has to have an interesting background. By the end of the story, I was intrigued enough to read more, mostly because Jakai is a lot more powerful and useful than any of the other characters and I really want to know more.
