Tennyson D'Angelo . . .

Darkness lives within each of us. Shadows. We are each capable of great goodness and unbelievable evil. It is the duality of being human.
I want to live in the light. I don't enjoy the shadows. But I'm not sure I've been given a choice in the matter.The shadows own me. They dance at my edges and tangle in my light. They torment my days and make my nights an anguished hell.
I simply want to be free. One way . . . or another.

They call him the Prophet.
Tennyson D'Angelo, the man who can foretell the future. A modern-day oracle. And Olivia Hawking desperately needs his help. She tracks him down in Italy, begging for his assistance. She has a life-or-death problem that only a bonafide psychic can solve. But Tennyson is slowly fracturing from within, the weight of the D'Angelo curse destroying him.

Olivia and Tennyson join forces, each searching for answers. But their understanding of the D'Angelo curse keeps changing, and Time is not on their side. Even as they fall in love, Tennyson and Olivia realize they are in a race against the clock. Will they find answers in time to save themselves?

This final installment of the Brothers Maledetti series can be read as a stand-alone novel. Don't miss the other books in the Brothers Maledetti series:

My Review: 5 Stars

Icing. This book is pure, decadent icing. Tennyson's story is the perfect cap to this series and I couldn't devour it fast enough. I highly recommend reading this series in order, as it's like savoring a five course gourmet meal.  

 I've always felt like Tennyson is the most intriguing brother and the one who feels the deepest. Fate brings Olivia to him and their chemistry is an explosion that's off the charts. The build up to that first kiss was exquisitely delightful and a torture to wait for.

Nichole Van knows how to draw a reader in, heart and soul, and I was completely lost in this book. I felt every single emotion, from surprise to heartbreak to fear to intense love. I'm emotionally drained and absolutely amazed at the beauty of this book.

If you love romance and fantasy, you'll be in heaven and find yourself in a seriously legitimate book hangover before you know it with this one.

Content: mild-moderate violence; mild language; mild+ swoony romance (chemistry, light innuendo, kissing)
