But even though I didn’t choose to be here, this new world manages to pull me deeper, affecting me differently than other humans. Unfortunately King Edu, also known as the King of Flames, notices this and I’m now considered a threat.

If I want to survive King Edu and the dangers of Under, I need to escape. The only problem is, there’s another masked king who seems to have an interest in me. Aon, the King of Shadows, wants me here in this world, and he wants me alive.

I just need to figure out why.

Lydia is a forensic autopsy technician who wakes one morning with a tattoo on her arm that she has no recollection of having done. Things then go from bad to worse.

This is a paranormal horror story set in the world of Under. Beings similar to vampires, King Edu who reminded me of a huge troll except that he didn’t speak, shape changers, everything paranormal. The tattoo mysteriously disappears which apparently confuses the beings of Under as they believe it to be a mark that the human with the tattoo has been chosen by the Ancients. Aon visits Lydia in her dreams and he’s really nasty. The problem for Lydia is she believes both Aon and Edu will kill her but their ways are different and she doesn’t know which one will be hardest to endure.

I have to admit I didn’t understand the world-building in this book at all. There didn’t seem to be any thread linking the different scenes together or any point in the reason behind taking the humans. Perhaps a little more background to Under would have helped, but by the end of the book I was as confused as I was at the beginning. I also got confused by the many different characters who didn’t seem to be properly introduced into the story.

There are good points in the story, the scenes with Aon are very descriptive and send shivers down the spine. This book had good potential which didn’t quite come across.
