Hidden within the rugged mountains of the Pacific Northwest, Iron Portals separate the modern and ancient worlds. Only a chosen few, Warriors of the Iron Guild, know their locations.
For years, Olivia Crawford has kept a low profile in order to keep her para-ability secret. If the army finds out she’s a Healer-Talent, they’ll force her to work for them—just like her brother who was taken as a boy and never seen again.
But when a terrible explosion rocks New Seattle, she risks everything to save the injured, including a handsome stranger with secrets of his own.
Blaming himself for the death of a friend, Iron Guild warrior Asher Kane vows to bring those responsible to justice. After he’s hurt on a mission and nursed back to health by a beautiful yet mysterious woman, this dangerously sexy bad-boy finds himself falling for her…even as he struggles to stay away.
But stalking them on the streets of New Seattle is a cruel and vengeful evil—one that threatens to destroy them both…
I also felt this way in other parts of the story where there are time jumps. I did enjoy reading about the new characters introduced in the chop shop and the possibility of seeing Olivia’s brother, Vince.
I am a diehard Laurie London fan and while I wasn’t really vested in this storyline, it doesn’t affect my choice to continue reading whatever Laurie writes. It’s a good story; just a little disappointed it didn’t grab me like the previous book did.
I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
