Nearly a century ago, Darian was an abused wife transformed by her lover into an immortal Shaede who can slip in and out of darkness effortlessly. But after telling her they are the last of their kind, Azriel abandons her. To survive, Darian uses her unique skills to become an assassin. For the last five years, Darian has contracted with Tyler, who vets her assignments and watches her back. Then her newest assignment shatters Darian’s view as it turns out her target is the King of the Shaede Nation — a nation Darian didn’t know existed. Suddenly Darian is thrust into a budding supernatural war and must find her way carefully, for nothing and no one is as it seems. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Dec., 336 pp., $7.99)
