Among the living or the dead, he’s never needed anything from anyone.

Shadow Mage Gethen is a powerful necromancer, keeper of the border between the living and the dead, and brother to the king of Besera. But with his dark powers failing and a vengeful entity attacking, Gethen should be happy when a formidable lady knight appears at his gates. He’s not. The price for her aid is steep—his allegiance in a war against his brother.

In battle or in bed, she’s never met a man she considered her match.

Militess Halina is undaunted by the threat of war between her country and neighboring Besera. She earned her titles by shedding blood and breaking bones. She uses her body to reward soldiers who serve her loyally, and to punish those who don’t. And Halina’s never met a man she couldn’t command or crush.

Until now.

Passion and power unexpectedly ignite when a blizzard traps Halina at Gethen's citadel. With the evil entity’s onslaughts rapidly deteriorating Gethen’s sorcery, they have little time to understand their unexpected attraction. But could their passion be the key to defeating an ancient enemy that’s hell-bent on obliterating their world?

I received a free Advance digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

This are of those moments that I can't seem to connect with the characters. I really had a hard time memorizing and familiarizing myself with the characters names. Not to mention the overly confusing world building and plot of the book. Sad to say but the storytelling wasn’t engaging at all.

I honestly feel like this book used a lot of words and said basically nothing at all that could at least hype my reading momentum. I felt like it was a total waste of time reading. Although the characters are all bad ass, It just lacks the chemistry and spark for me.
