Against his will, Noctorno Hawthorne, an undercover vice cop, finds himself embroiled in magic, mayhem and parallel universes. Too late, he meets an amazing woman only to find she’s destined for his identical twin in another world.

And things aren’t going real great there.

Noc is recruited to help save that world.

What he doesn’t know is his destined love resides there.

Franka Drakkar wears a mask. A mask she never takes off to protect herself in a world of malice, intrigue, and danger.

When Franka meets Noc and he discovers her secrets, convinced she carries a midnight soul, having shielded herself from forming bonds with anyone, she struggles with accepting his tenderness and care.

When Noc meets Franka, over wine and whiskey, her masks slips and Noc knows it’s her—only her—and he has to find a way to get her to come home with him.

And then make her want to stay.

Look, I really don't understand why I didn't read this book when it actually came out. I guess I wasn't going to be as interested in it as I actually was. The whole Fantasyland series was superb, so now that I finished with this one, I can confirm that this book is my second fave in the series.

I thought I was going to be put off reading about Tor's twin from another universe, aka Noc. They are basically the same person but from different parallel universes. But, alas, I was not put off at all. I was also going in slowly because I wasn't a fan of Franka from the beginning, but after literally saving two worlds, I gave her the benefit of the doubt. Now I can say that I really like her. I love to read both POVs, but I dislike whenever the POV changed to Valentine because she was a serious mystery that I didn't actually want to resolve.

The romance in here was off the charts. Noc always knew what he wanted and he was really patient in showing Franka what she also wanted but didn't actually say it. The book didn't actually have much action as some of the others had, but I enjoyed the romance a lot. I laughed at whatever happened in the language barrier that there was, it was very hilarious.

Overall, it was an awesome read and at the perfect time. I have been trying to catch up with the last KA books, so you'll see at least two more reviews of books of her in the near future. As I always say, I recommend the books, hands down and eyes closed.

PS, I haven't reviewed the books before this one (I am very ashamed), so no previews reviews.
