When the last shadow warrior falls, so will all humanity.

With each demon he vanquishes in service to the Aztec sun god, Tomás fulfills his duty to defend humankind—and surrenders another piece of his humanity to his wolf spirit. All hope seems lost until a mission leads him to the door of the one thing he thought he’d never find…his spirit mate. The only woman who can save him from oblivion.

When Carolina hears the wolf’s howl, it pierces the very core of her lonely heart. Yet she dare not answer. As the last guardian of her land and the secret it contains, she is haunted by the mistake that cost the lives of her family. Never will she repeat that mistake, especially with a warrior who is more beast than man.

Chasing away the demon is easier than breaching the barriers around the heart of the young woman who possesses a strange power over water—and his very soul. But if they are to survive the night, he must convince her they are destined to stand together.

Or not at all.

Review:  Tomas is an Aztec shadow warrior, he was turned into his wolf spirit centuries ago to fight off demons for his Aztec sun god. After so many years fighting and killing demons his is slowly but surely losing his humanity, until he finds his spirit mate Carolina who has sworn to protect and keep the secrets of her water goddess. This story had me hooked, lined and sinkered from the beginning. The authors really did a wonderful job describing Tomas and Carolina’s inner turmoil to defend their gods or give in to their temptations. The cover is also to die for, Scott Carpenter really did an amazing job and captured the story perfectly.

There was not much romance, the small part there was I felt worked very well into the story. I was fascinated with the storyline as a whole. The Aztec references were amazing and different from anything I have read lately and were explained so well I did not have a hard time understanding the world the authors created. Intrigue with paranormal aspect, fight scenes which had my heart pounding, secrets and hero’s and heroine’s that made me beg for more. I cannot wait to see what happens next!
