Book Description:
Keeper of the demon of Secrets, Amun can manipulate the darkest thoughts of anyone nearby. But when the immortal warrior is chained and isolated to protect those he loves, death is his only hope of release—until he meets Haidee, a fellow prisoner whose beauty and hidden vulnerability draw him into a reckless test of his loyalty….

Haidee is a demon-assassin, raised to despise Amun's kind. Yet how can she hate the man whose touch sets her aflame? But to save him, she must give herself body and soul…and face the wrath of a powerful adversary sworn to destroy her.

What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
I was interested in Amun from the beginning. He's obviously been through a lot and what with the ability to glean anyone secrets from them just by being in their presence... that had to mean there was a lot going on with this non-speaker.

I actually wouldn't have thought Haidee would be the match for Amun but then things got interesting and she can't remember things which means Secrets has his work cut out for him. I did like that there was a small explanation for her actions thousands of years ago but then it did feel a little weak.

Still, I enjoyed Amun and Haidee's stroll through hell where they had to free Amun from the extra demons possessing him (though I'm starting to hate that aspect of the stories). Overall a good edition to the series but not the best.
