Nineteen-year-old Karis has been blind since birth, but for some reason, she can see through the wall of smoke that separates the human lands from those of the Faeries that rule in grand courts on the other side. Most of the time, the only thing she can see on the other side of the wall is the swipe of a tail or the trailing of a bony hand along the surface. But one day, a handsome faerie appears and sweeps her away into his world — a world that is being ravaged by an evil so dark and deadly, she fears she may never see her home again.
Loftin is a bounty hunter and he has been searching for Karis since she went missing from the Court of Ash.
He needs to return her and collect the ransom. But the longer they travel together and the more he teaches her about what she is now able to see, the more difficult he finds the thought of letting her go. A fiery passion ignites between them, but with a monster tracking their every move, they must find a way to reach the Court of Ash before it kills them both.

If you haven’t gotten on the Bond train yet, the hell are you waiting for? This installment focuses on retelling Snow White’s story, but just like her previous work, you totally don’t feel like you’re reading a rip-off, and Bond awesomely does little shout-outs to the originals. Like this one, with the family of seven brothers, and the apple, or the smoke and mirrors. So. Good.
Loftin and Karis were great together. I liked the way things seemed like a fairy tale but still built up that bond between them that eventually turned into something more. But honestly, the whole thing could’ve been cut out and I still would have been beyond entertained by the world Bond created and drama that kept on. Add the romance into this awesomeness and you’re totally wishing you had your own mirror to visit this world. I love the fae and what became of Faery, I loved the plot and storyline. One of my favorite romances are hate-first-love-later so I was especially excited to meet Loftin as this cold hunter who needed to see his kingdom restored. Watching Karis turn him on his ass was- well.
If there was one thing I had to complain about– well, not complain -it’d be the bad guy. Bond’s last evil-doer had a lot of depth that I appreciated, and though I loved the plot twists that occurred in here, I was still kinda hoping to see more to the Evil Queen. I think it would’ve been cooler to know her, but at the same time, I can only assume that some people just don’t need a reason to turn bat-shit crazy. Aside from her, I also felt the characters repeated themselves just a little too much, but honestly, I was always so excited with the thing that I’d forget about it unless it happened again. Which, really, occurred maybe four, five times? Anywho, it’s a definite recommend. It’s exciting, it’s hot, it’s sad, it’s engaging, so check it out!
