In the blackest night, with the moon and stars to guide him, she would always be there waiting…
Cyrenna thought she died the day she watched Tynan and his brothers jump through the banishment portal in an act of solidarity with Rigor. Little did she know, it would be the first of many deaths she would experience in her quest to claim his heart. She would surrender not only her immortal soul, but a mortal one repeatedly. Through a deal with the great Oracle, she has multiple mortal lifetimes to change the direction of her future and have a chance with Tynan.
Her journey spans the ages from the GenPei War in Japan and the Silk Road west, to Cromwell, the Three Kingdoms and modern times, bringing her one step closer to forever until she makes a misstep. Then, the burden falls to Tynan. The only thing that is absolute is her fervent hope that he will come, but there’s one big problem.
Through it all, he doesn’t so much as know her name.

When I first started reading this, I felt like it was not really my kind of book. Boy was I wrong, the further I got the more I was pulled into the story. This is indeed a true love story that moves throughout time and history. She recognized him as her mate as he slipped through a portal, banished with his brothers for life. She goes to the Oracle to ask for a chance to know him and a deal is struck. From one death to another, from one era to another, Cyrenna hopes to change her future to include Tynan. In the end, it becomes up to Tynan to find her. Will the two ever get to be together?
This book was wonderfully written and I recommend it highly. It is one of those books that you will read again and again. I will be looking into some of the history found in the book, I want to know more of the places these two go through. Aedan definitely has a way of making his words wrap around you and keep you fully involved. I will patiently wait for the second book and haunt Aedan Byrnes to make sure I don’t miss a thing. Thanks for the wonderful book, it was a pleasure to read and review.
About the Author-
There is no simple description for Aedan Byrnes. Obsessive, dreamer, reclusive, compulsive, outdoorsman and wordsmith would be among the list if one were started. The displaced Gael lives in the upper Midwest with family between jaunts wherever the road takes him. A frequent traveler, he is as likely to be found rock climbing or spelunking as sitting fireside dreaming or aimlessly floating away.
A lifelong lover of words and writing, he claims a diverse reading appetite and his writing reflects the myriad influences. A self-proclaimed 'reader's writer', he looks for the emotional and the sensory in word combinations, not just the visceral comprehension of phrases in the stories he crafts and his love of all things literary shines through.
