Once the night comes . . .

Will Thorne is living a nightmare, his sanity slowly being drained away by a force he can't control. His talents have made him the perfect assassin for hire. But as he loses his grip on reality, there is no calming him—until he finds his next target: the mysterious Holly Evernight.

Love must cast aside the shadows . . .

Holly cannot fathom who would put a contract on her life, yet the moment she touches Will, the connection between them is elemental, undeniable—and she's the only one who can tame his bouts of madness. But other assassins are coming for Holly. Will must transform from killer to protector and find the man who wants Holly dead . . . or his only chance for redemption will be lost.

Amazing characters. Amazing series. WANT MOAR!

Thoughts on Evernight

I almost don’t think I have the words to describe how much I adore this book. From Will’s confusion over what had happened to him in the months since he was rescued from his imprisonment to the revelations over who was behind so much of what happened here, it was a thrill ride.

Frankly, I loved Holly. Her issues arising from her imprisonment, her fear and the way she could so easily be distracted by a puzzle (and Will was such a delightful puzzle for her to unravel!), endeared her to me. She hid behind her intellect and her gadgets and wouldn’t let anyone close enough to see how much she was struggling with what she was forced to take part in. Naturally, Will smashed through all her defenses and laid her bare. In more ways than one.

And Will. Oh, Will. Surviving what was done to him only to be caught in the madness of his body betraying him. *weeps* I felt for him. I felt for both of them. The Fallen left his mark on both of them in very different ways and it was only once they banded together that they started working through their issues. Frankly, those issues were legion, all things considered.

This series takes me to my happy place. Kristen Callihan’s characters give me all the highs and lows I could ever want in a relationship with a side order of villains who seem unstoppable. Might I just say, I’m impatient for book 6 now. SO IMPATIENT.
