Continuing the story of Nikki and Michael, as they prepare for their wedding, only one obstacle stands in their way. Nikki must pass the Circle’s final test. Using her skills and psychic talents she must face a number of adversaries and beat them. Only then will she receive permission to marry her Vampire. When one of the foes tries to kill her in earnest, the circle realises something is very wrong and Nikki and Michael are thrown in at the deep end, facing something far worse than marriage.
This is the fourth book in the Nikki and Michael series and is as good a read as the others. I like the characters of Nikki and Michael and it’s been good watching them evolve from the first book, starting as two very different individuals to the current novel where they make an exceptional team. You feel the love they have for each other is very strong and believable, even when things aren’t going their way or they are at odds with each other. Above all you care what happens to them very much. Keri Arthur’s writing style is very smooth, easy to read and absorbing and I found it hard to put the book down until I’d finished. I’m not sure if there will be another book in this series but I certainly hope so, I like the characters too much to say goodbye.
