Re-read Evernight

Read Evernight (Darkest London, #5) by Kristen Callihan

Will Thorne is living a nightmare, his sanity slowly being drained away by a force he can’t control. His talents have made him the perfect assassin for hire. But as he loses his grip on reality, there is no calming him—until he finds his next target: the mysterious Holly Evernight.

Love must cast aside the shadows . . .

Holly cannot fathom who would put a contract on her life, yet the moment she touches Will, the connection between them is elemental, undeniable—and she’s the only one who can tame his bouts of madness. But other assassins are coming for Holly. Will must transform from killer to protector and find the man who wants Holly dead . . . or his only chance for redemption will be lost.

I always skip the subplots when I reread this one since I didn’t especially like the next book.

I forget how crude the hero talks sometimes, the words he uses even in his internal narration. But it’s in keeping with his perspective and “earthiness” as it were, his love of all things emotional. I really like how her coming to accept him for what he is is an important part of the story.

I keep coming back to this one. This is at least the fourth time I’ve read it, probably more like sixth since Goodreads didn’t used to track rereads.
