    Inhaltsangabe

    No day is ordinary in a world where technology and magic compete for supremacy.... But no matter which force is winning, in the apocalypse, a sword will always work.

    Hugh d'Ambray, Preceptor of the Iron Dogs, Warlord of the Builder of Towers, served only one man. Now his immortal, nearly omnipotent master has cast him aside. Hugh is a shadow of the warrior he was, but when he learns that the Iron Dogs, soldiers who would follow him anywhere, are being hunted down and murdered, he must make a choice: to fade away or to be the leader he was born to be. Hugh knows he must carve a new place for himself and his people, but they have no money, no shelter, and no food, and the necromancers are coming. Fast.

    Elara Harper is a creature who should not exist. Her enemies call her Abomination; her people call her White Lady. Tasked with their protection, she's trapped between the magical heavyweights about to collide and plunge the state of Kentucky into a war that humans have no power to stop. Desperate to shield her people and their simple way of life, she would accept help from the devil himself - and Hugh d'Ambray might qualify.

    Hugh needs a base; Elara needs soldiers. Both are infamous for betraying their allies, so how can they create a believable alliance to meet the challenge of their enemies? 

    As the prophet says, "It is better to marry than to burn". 

    Hugh and Elara may do both.

    Surprising

    Most people that read or heard other books of Ilona Andrews such as the main story to this one were disappointed with this side story.
    I for found it rather impressive though since it sheds a new light on the main characters and their background. The leading character of this story is new and different. Her cause, goals and person seem to be unimportant for the main story at first but she will be yet another factor that will decide over the outcome of the original characters' fate.
    Hugh, a character that is meant to be despised but which I already liked in his appearance in the main story proves to have many hidden skills and traits worth discovering.
    As a pair these both are complicated but thrilling and as expected a masterpiece.
    Ilona Andrews is one of the only fantasy authors that don't only reuse old ideas and ideals.
    Their characters are real with much development and their knowledge (of everything from weaponry, over herbs, to history), outstanding research and story complexity thrill me yet again.

    I was really growing sick of always only reading about selfless heroines that look gorgeous but have no brain and flat, predictable storylines so I'm glad I found another good author beside my few favourites that can still surprise me with every chapter.

    Decent Fantasy

    The book is decent fantasy with all the stuff that comes with it. Wizards, necromancers, Druids, gods, other worlds, anything you could think of. But since this is all old news for the characters it doesn't feel like the book makes an effort to get you to understand that world or to get you interested in it's secrets. Instead too much weird sex dreams/scenes/references and too much of that "we hate each other, but we can't go without each other" instead of that more story and maybe a little twist in it would have been nice. It's pretty linear. Also there was more room for witty use of tech- and magic-time, since this should be in this world in the future I guess?
