The Sentinel Wars-Book 9
Shannon K. Butcher
Cain is a man at the end of his rope. He knows that if he doesn't find a mate soon, he will die. But mates for his kind are hard to find, and finding one who is compatible with his power is even harder. When he meets the pink haired Rory, he would have never guessed she could be the one, but fate can be a finicky thing and his mate just happens to be a hard headed lady with a quest of her own. Rory is looking for the person who can cure her visions and she thinks that Cain can help her find them, so she vows to stay with him only long enough to find that person. She is drawn to Cain, but she isn't looking for a commitment, even though his power speaks to her and she longs to have a family of her own. Rory has lost everyone she has ever loved and she knows she can't afford to lose another, so she rather just walk away at the end of things. Cain is determined to get the woman that has come to mean more to him than life and he will use any method to get her, even his body if that is what it takes. Meanwhile there is a demon that is seeking Rory and if Cain isn't careful he may take the one person that Cain has ever loved.
FALLING BLIND is the first book in this series that I have read and I was able to pick up the series rather easily. Of course I think the reader would find more enjoyment if they started at the beginning of the series, as Butcher has created an intricate series and the characters overlap throughout the stories. Either way, you are sure to enjoy the Sentinel Wars.
