Nalini Singh is one of my favorites for a reason, and this book is an excellent example. There were a few times when I wanted to give up on the Royal House of Shadows series, but knowing she had written the last book kept me hanging on. I loved Micah and Liliana together! They both grew up under such extreme circumstances and managed to become strong and kind. It's always a nice switch for the hero to be a virgin, and especially with these two, I'm glad that they are each other's only lovers. Bard, Jissa, and even Mouse seemed very real and endearing. The mythical creatures came to life too, which doesn't always happen for me with other paranormal writers.
There were a couple of consistency issues, but Singh seemed to make more of an effort to include elements from the others. I would have liked to have seen more of the siblings together. I don't know what Nicolai and Breena accomplished in the final battle (Dayn is excused, since he and Reda had to go after Moragh), but it's hard to imagine that two such strong warriors and magicians wouldn't have been useful against an opponent of the Blood Sorcerer's caliber. As much as I enjoyed this book, I probably would have enjoyed it as much or more if it wasn't part of a series. Perhaps that would be true of all the books in the series - my expectations are always higher when I know stories are supposed to connect.

A very sweet love story

First time reading one of Nalini Singh's Harlequin titles. Like most others offered by this publisher, it's a simple story yet remains thoroughly captivating. A different approach on the beauty and the beast story. I prefer Singh's other non-Harlequin books to this one, yet still was a good enough read.

The Lord of the Abyss and the ruler of the Dark Castle has no memory before taking on that mantle. Twenty years ago he was Prince Micah, the youngest child of the King and Queen of Elden. One night the Blood Sorcerer took over the castle and murdered his parents. Their final act was to send their daughter and three sons to safety. Micah landed in the Dark Castle where, when he was old enough, he became Guardian of the Abyss: the realm where the wicked go after death.
Liliana is the daughter of the Blood Sorcerer and the victim of his cruelty in countless ways. She had a vision foretelling that, if Micah is not found and brought back in time, the efforts of his siblings to defeat her father and reclaim Elden will fail. She needs to find out how much of his memory has been repressed, how his soul may have been distorted by his role or her father's curses, and whether he will trust her enough to get back to Elden - especially when he learns who she is.
