Mara Cantor’s life is boring and uncomplicated, and she likes it that way. She has her internship at the museum—a job she shares with her roommate, Davis —and while it is low-paying and occasionally mind-numbing, it gives her all the free time she needs to finish her thesis. And that is just fine.
But when Argent Leeds, the internationally famous playboy and raconteur, visits Mara’s museum, he brings with him the most exciting archeological discovery in decades: the Pazuzu gemstones. Long assumed to be nothing more than a myth by most scholars, the gemstones are rumored to possess mystical powers.
Between Argent, his gemstones, and Davis, Mara’s boring life has suddenly gotten very complicated. Now she is caught up in a sexual adventure that is either the most exciting time of her life . . . or the most terrifying.
This book will make you uncomfortable especially towards the end. I was on edge for the last couple of chapters.
The story is quite disturbing, but it's also entertaining, funny, hot, mystical, suspenseful and interesting.
The archeology parts of the book could have sent me to sleep but the author didn't drag out unnecessary details.
It reads kind of like Fifty Shades. Poor girl, rich intriguing guy etc etc but it's also different from it. There's a stronger plot and better characters.
Argent is creepy. Very very creepy. I didn't like him from the beginning. Mara is adorable but annoying sometimes.
It is well written and properly thought out.
There's a lot of interesting twists especially at the end.
