As a former Agent of Death, Madeline Black is no stranger to witnessing violent ends. But being the one to cause them is an entirely different story…
Despite her having saved Chicago
from a vampire invasion, the Agency wants to get Maddy off their payroll—permanently. With the deadly Retrievers hot on her trail, she has no choice but to trust Nathaniel to port her to safety. But even the exotic and dangerous world that she winds up in is not as peaceful as she would have hoped. Caught in a turf war between a group of fae and a disturbingly familiar foe, Maddy soon discovers that the twisted plots of her grandfather, Lucifer
, and his brothers extend even into this unknown realm.
Now, with enemies gathering on all sides, Maddy’s fate is looking darker than ever. And to protect her unborn son from her adversaries, she may have to tap into a power she hoped never to access…
I was given this book by Net Galley for an honest review.
Black Heart is a fast paced, roller-coaster ride of a book. The character development and story line are very well done. For most of the book it is jus Maddy on another world. She was sent there by Nathaniel when the retrievers were sent after her by the Agency. She realizes that she is truly alone, and tries to find her way back to her world. In trying to locate the portal she has to destroy a threat that she has encountered before, the Cimic. In doing so she comes across her Uncle Daharan in his dragon form. She does not know why , but she feels a connection with him. When she returns to Chicago she has no homed to return to, for the retrievers have burned it down. J.B. finds her and takes her to his place. Things go horribly wrong from there very fast, and Maddy does not know who to trust anymore. She does not know who is behind the new threat, but now she has to kill Queen Titania before she kills her.
Maddy now has to embrace the darkness inside herself to kill one of the oldest Fae, otherwise Queen Titania will kill her and raise her son and teach him to hate her. After she kills the Queen, the Agency sends the retrievers once again and Maddy breaks the chains that the agency has on the retrievers. Maddy now controls the retrievers, and fins out that Puck was behind it all.
I loved Black Heart and recommend this book to everyone so I give it 5/ 5 stars,
