Embrace the Night Eternal is the second book in the Envy Chronicles series by Joss Ware and a Paranormal Romance from AVON.
Everything they knew is gone.
From the raging fires, five men emerge with extraordinary new powers. They must learn how to survive this dark, ravaged world . . . but they cannot do it alone.
Simon Japp will never forget his violent past. But when civilization is all but destroyed, he sees his chance for redemption. Blessed with a strange "gift," he's determined to help the resistance against the Strangers, the mysterious force that stalks them at every turn. He can't afford to get distracted, even by the stunning, soft-spoken woman fighting by his side . . .
Sage Corrigan has learned to be careful where she places her trust. But she sees something good in Simon, even if he can't see it in himself. Posing as lovers to infiltrate a group key to their fight, they find that their staged affection soon develops into a desire that will leave them fighting for their lives in the night eternal . . .
Simon Japp is one of the five men who survived being buried in a cave for fifty years - only to emerge and find the world as they remembered it destroyed. This new world is being lead by ‘Strangers’ and not everyone is happy about that.
Joining a resistance group who are trying to over throw the ‘Strangers’ rule, Simon and his friends are determined to help in anyway they can - often using the new ‘gifts’ they developed since waking.
Sage Corrigan is a computer whiz who uses her vast knowledge to gather any and all information she can find concerning their enemies. When a clue leads them to the ‘cult-like’ compound Sage grew up in - she is determined to be the one to follow up on the lead.
But she needs someone to pose as her husband or she might not make it back out of the compound.
She volunteers Simon - and neither make it back unchanged.
I am really enjoying this series. I give Embrace the Night Eternal 4 out of 5 stars.
