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. - via GoodReads
Evernight by Kristen Callihan was my first ever Darkest London book and it most certainly won’t be my last. This book took me three weeks to read but it was a pleasant three weeks. I savored Evernight. It pulled me out of my reading funk slowly but surely.
Will Thorn and Holly Evernight mix about as well as oil and water. They have a bit of an ugly history. I absolutely loved watching them work together to try and work through their issues. And do they have some issues: clockwork hearts, poisons, assassins, and a Fae Queen on a mission. While the plot is fast paced, Callihan gives her romance time to grow.
Evernight is the fifth book in the series but not once did I feel lost. Kristen Callihan does an excellent job initiating new readers to the series. For those who enjoy the enemy to lovers troupe, make sure to take a look at this one! I’ll be going back to dive into the rest of this series!
