ARC REVIEW...Rapture's Edge (Night Prowler #3) by J.T. Geissinger

SECRETS…In the hidden world that exists beside our own, a mirror world of ancient magic and elegant deceptions, a world of people who are so much more than they first appear, a war is brewing. Most of these Gifted people—the Ikati, a savage, sensual race of lethal predators—are content to hide behind human smiles, disguising their splendor in order to survive. But others are discontent. And they will hide no longer.

BETRAYALS…Eliana lives for two things only: vengeance on the man who killed her father and seeing her father’s dream of living in the open with humans come to pass. But that dream is far too dangerous for The Hunt, a group of elite Ikati assassins with one objective: eliminate her before she can expose their secrets to the world.

SEDUCTION…Demetrius is haunted by the memory of the woman he once loved. He will risk everything to save her from the killers on her tail…and convince her, before the ancient walls between two worlds crumble, that only together can they defeat their real enemy, a brilliant, cunning traitor far more deadly than either of them can guess.
Expected publication: June 18th 2013 by Montlake Romance

I wish I knew when I requested to review this book on NetGallery that it was actually the third book in the series.  That would have helped with understanding the whole background of what was going on.

I was honestly lost during some parts and wanted to kick myself for not researching this book on Goodreads before undertaking it and trying to understand it.  Those of you who are like me and plan on reading this book then I highly suggest you read the two books before picking up "Rapture's Edge."

Otherwise, aside from background clueless nativity, everything else was easy to understand.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself in this hidden world of love, magic, mystery, and danger.

Eliana and Demetrius' chemistry has this uncanny feeling of surrealism.  I know that description sounds weird and incomplete but that's the best that I could come up with besides using the word "soul mates".

I know that their relationship isn't a walk in the park as a war is raging and Eliana has some major trust issues towards Demetrius BUT I couldn't help but like their rifts and banters and root for them the entire time.

Another theme that highlighted "Rapture's Edge" for me was the secondary characters like Mel, Eliana's BFF and strong supporter of "Elitrus." <3

I highly recommend "Rapture's Edge" and will now go back and buy the other two previous installments while patiently awaiting for the arrival of book 4.  Bye!!

My Rating:

-Overall : 9
-Plot : 9
-Writing : 8.5
-Characters : 8.5
-Cover : 8.5
