Edge of Passion ( Cloak Warriors #1)
*Submitted for review by Publisher*
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Able to render themselves invisible, immortal Cloak Warriors like Aiden have been protecting humans from the dark power of the Demons of Fear for centuries. But the demons might soon have a powerful tool in their hands to seduce humans to the dark side. And the person to provide them with this elixir is the human scientist Leila. Unbeknownst to her, the drug she’s developing to cure Alzheimer’s has the unexpected side effect of weakening the mind’s resistance to the influence of demons.
The Council of Cloak Warriors is divided, some of them believing the only safe way to eradicate this threat is to eliminate its inventor, others are bent on protecting the human scientist. Aiden is a loyal Cloak Warrior who accepts the assignment to protect her despite his own beliefs that humans can't be trusted. However, when her life is endangered, his beliefs shift, and he’s drawn into a battle whose participants are unknown: is he fighting the demons or his fellow Cloak Warriors?
Forbidden desire flares between Aiden and Leila as they are forced to rely on the only people they can trust: each other. And even if he can save her and defeat their enemies, a union between them might be the most dangerous undertaking of all.
Tina Folsom is one of those authors that you have to read, no question about it. She is up there with the likes of J.R. Ward and Lara Adrian for me. A seriously great read, though I would expect nothing less. I could not stop reading this; I just loved it from start to finish. Aiden has a disliking for humans, his latest charge getting lured over by the Demons of Fear and killing an innocent in the process did nothing to heal it, it just made him more certain that at whatever the cost, he wouldn’t let another innocent die. He is put on a mission to keep a doctor safer, Leila, to get rid of her research so the demons don’t get their hands on it and use it against the humans to lure them to their side. As you can well imagine, things don’t go smoothly and there are plenty of twists and turns, not to mention sabotage.
Leila and Aiden are just perfect together, they make each other strong and not to mention the sizzling steamy scenes between the two are something to behold, hot! The way it flows is testament to how well it is written and how well the plot has been thought out. There is nothing out of place in the story, no boring bits or any needless scenes or characters. I cannot speak any more highly of Tina Folsom’s writing and books; they are just works of pure genius and brilliance. I cannot wait for the second book to come out so I can get some more hot Cloak Warriors action!
