After being found, inexplicably, standing over a brutal scene involving a pair of recent murder victims, Jade comes to in a hospital with limited memories. Labeled as paranoid by the seedy medical team and locked up, she seems more a victim than a deviant. Promptly drugged and plunged into sleep, she is submerged into a chronic dreamland that seems controlled by another, she soon gives in to a lavish life with a Malum who seems all too eager to see to her every desire. She awakes in yet another reality with no memories of her past, or even herself. Something is making her forget… and just like that she steps into her new life.

Malum is deeply in love with Jade and is only agenda is to give her the world… Or so he claims. Blindly followed by his people, the Luxans, he works tirelessly to keep them safe from the Rebels, with Jade by his side. Surely his motives are pure… yet, the more time Jade spends with him, the further she seems to fall from herself.

All the while, Jade is plagued by vivid dreams of another life… one she struggles to understand while Malum works to make her forget. As Jade struggles to hold onto her soul and discover her past, Malum seeks to possess all that she is.

PelicanFreak’s 5-star Review

I absolutely will never be able to say enough about this book.

I had the pleasure of reading it for edits and I actually missed it every time I had to step away. It really sucked me in. Vieira has a way of setting the scene, and with the descriptives – so that the reader feels like they’re there. I love when that happens, unfortunately it doesn’t very often any more.

The characters are a very interesting cast and you’ll find that you love to hate them, or totally root for them… there is sex, violence, romance. There’s a little bit of raw anger – that these characters are able to draw out and I’ve never said this about fiction – I don’t get emotionally invested easily – but I did with this book.

I truly hope that Vieira keeps writing as she clearly has a rare gift. With so much to read, literally millions of choices, it still is hard to find something of this quality.
I eagerly await more in this series and I will greedily submerse myself in anything this author writes going forward.

Brilliantly designed, complex characters.
Good continuity.
Spelling/grammar/ etc. on point.

Great cover, fitting. Dark like the book…
As I’m writing this review, I miss the book still. Pretty sure I’ll be re-visiting it in the years to come, as a rare favorite.

Highly recommend.
