be with her? But what if your job was to kill her, but you fell in love
instead? And now you're being hunted by your own kind?

This book started off very dark. Ellie is in a very dark, hopeless place after her sister's murder, but Marcus helps her to move forward and see the beauty in the darkness and feel joy again.
Marcus Marble is our dark, romantic hero. He sweeps Ellie off her feet and is incredibly romantic. While his leaning are a bit dark for me, he and Ellie fit together perfectly (though he can still take me to the opera sometime). But the course of true love never did run smooth and Marcus has a secret or two he's not sharing!
I enjoyed the concept of the paranormal element of the book, though I found the last section a bit rushed and confusing (though this may be more clear in the next book). Another thing I would have liked is more depth in Ellie's mission. It was introduced, but I wish it had been explained further.
There are some serious mysteries left at the end, so I'm excited to see what happens in the sequel, Black Satin!
