For a librarian with a focus on rare magic books, Olivia’s new job is a dream come true. She has been hired as part of a team to help manage the safe transportation of the collection of books owned by the Vampyre sorceress Carling Severan. The fact that the library is located on a mysterious island in an Other land only heightens the adventure.
Head of security for the expedition, Sebastian Hale is tired of his rootless life of adventure and finds himself attracted to the calm, beautiful librarian. But he is living a personal nightmare. He has been hit with a curse that is slowly taking away his sight, and he doesn’t know if he will survive the results.

But the powerful feelings growing between them, along with Sebastian’s inner turmoil, take a backseat when they learn there is a traitor lurking among their expedition team. With Elder Races politics and a priceless library on the line, they’ll have to rely on each other to survive the experience.

Warning: When a librarian who likes to nest meets an owl Wyr who has always lived for adventure, their romance won’t just be fly-by-night…

Olivia is chosen along with a team to safely retrieve a book collection from an Other land belonging to a Vampyre called Carling, this is where she meets Sebastian Hale, a yummy Wyr who is the Head of Security. While Olivia would rather stay in one place, Sebastian is the complete opposite as he travels a lot. Sparks instantly fly between them, will it be the start of a saucy relationship or will it only last as far as the expedition?

I liked how the story unravelled, it was full of twists and turns that kept me wanting more. Olivia is such a sweet character, I was pretty excited when she found herself attracted to Sebastian, who would have thought! I found myself egging her on when it came to him, GO OLIVIA!!

Phaedra was definitely my favourite character. Her attitude towards everything kept things interesting, you never know which way she will go. When she defends Olivia from a strong force it sealed the deal for me! She rocks!!!!!

I loved every minute I spent reading this novella and can’t believe I haven’t read any of the others in the series yet (I’ve just gone and bought the first 5 books). I will totally be putting them at the top of my TBR list! Now I’m impatiently waiting for them to arrive!!!
