Heir to the high-fae throne of the Southern Lands, he is known for his brutality and cold heart. But with the kingdom on the brink of ruin, I have no choice but to seek him out.

One small problem.

Never make the mistake of thinking you scare me. It will be your last."

Plot Summary :

Morana has never had any peace. Not when she was born and certainly not throughout her life. Peace is not an option when the very devil lives in her house. But her chaotic life is disrupted when her ex gets his hands on something dangerous and then proceeds to lose it to someone more dangerous. Now she has no choice but to kill the person responsible for her pain. If only it was that easy. Because her target might just be the toughest man to kill. Because he was the biggest predator to ever exist.

You,” she whispered to the space between them, “Tristan Caine, are a beautiful, beautiful man. And my heart beats for you."

This whole time she thought she was the one hunting Traistian Caine , when he always had his eyes on her. His death was hers and he won't let her ever forget it.

Can she defeat the predator in his own game?

She smiled. He stared at her smile for a long, long minute, his magnificent eyes glued to her mouth. And the most beautiful, precious thing happened. His cold, aloof eyes warmed.

Overall Opinion :

This is one series that I had been delaying FOREVER. It was on the back of my mind but then all of a sudden I would forget about it. My procrastination ended about a week ago when I went crazy and impulsively bought all the books of this series. I started with the Predator but holy shit , I swear I do not remember when one book ended and the next one began. It’s that good.

And you should know never to sneak up on a predator. Once we catch the scent of your blood, it's a matter of the hunt."

This series contains multiple couples and NO YOU CANNOT READ THEM AS STANDALONES. The stories are vastly connected and there is a huge chance you won’t understand wtf is happening if you read them as standalones.

The dark verse characters are a dream and I am freaking happy that somehow my timing coincided and the author will be releasing the last book of this series at the end of this year!
