The Remnant Gods Series
A montage of his life flickered before my eyes. I felt every joy, heartbreak, triumph, and defeat. And then there was nothing but terror…
For years, powerful empath Vesper Tallinn has kept herself isolated from the rest of the world. Because of her ability to manipulate emotions, she has the tendency to draw dangerous people to her. She can count the number of people she trusts on one hand, because in her experience, it’s altogether safer to be alone. Not only that, but keeping her head down keeps her off the radar of the Remnant Gods, powerful and ancient beings whose behavior is unpredictable at best.
But thanks to Corbin Troy, her police detective best friend, Vesper is pulled into an extremely disturbing murder investigation. Bodies keep turning up, and the emotions Vesper senses are terrifying and dark, oozing with cruelty and malice. Both the culprit and motive remain a mystery, but one thing is clear: the Remnant Gods are somehow involved. But are they the victims? Or the perpetrators?

WHAT READER’S SAY
The story. The feelings. I’m overcome with tumultuous emotions throughout the whole ride. From Vesper and Corbin’s journey to solve an unusual crime, to the personal adventures Vesper has had (which enables her to learn more for her powers), the dreams she keeps forgetting after…I may need a palate cleanser from being overwhelmed by such powerful words. I mean, what’s with them being craftily arranged to affect even the coldest of hearts? And yes, I’m referring to my unfeeling, black heart. It feels like I have experienced every vivid detail myself. Just…SUPERB!!!
Aaaah! I could hardly breathe through the book, there is so much to touch, taste, smell and see. The author beautifully weaves a dark urban mystery with serious heat, but in such a fantastically magical way! This world is sensually tangible, sucks the reader in and then spits you back out in the end, a mass of nerves and feelings! I love the main character! She is balanced with beauty, and strength, a contradiction of vulnerability and confidence. Elle slowly introduces us to her cast of potential love interests, allies, and friends.
I’m really excited about the fantastic new world that we have been given with this new series. We get a strong heroine, who knows her strengths and weaknesses; yet she doesn’t allow them to stand in her way. Vesper is a loyal friend and determined lover. If she finds an underdog she will be working with them to try to even the scales, even if that means she has to go into a club that “nice” young ladies avoid. 😂 if you enjoy intense heat and lol humor this is the book for you!
OMG. This is the second book by Elle Cross and I’m totally in love! Vesper is my favorite kind of female main character, she’s strong, doesn’t whine and has her s$&t together. Deimos is my new book boyfriend!
Love that this book has all of my faves; strong characters, loads of action and panty melting sex!!
This is a beautifully written book with a strong female protagonist you can really root for. I don’t know what kept me turning the pages more — the unfolding mystery or those super-hot scenes…
