Book 1 in The Cynn Cruors Bloodline Series

There is an on-going war between two breeds of immortal warriors who carry human, vampire, and werewolf blood, the Cynn Cruor and the Scatha Cruor. The Cynn Cruor wants to live in harmony with the human race. The Scatha Cruor wants to enslave them. Finn Qualtrough, a Cynn Cruor warrior is on a mission to find Dac Valerian, the leader of the Scatha Cruor responsible for the deaths of many, including his parents. When he pursues three Scatha warriors who can lead him to Dac, he happens upon a woman who awakens a desire within Quinn to claim her as his own.

She is the very essence of his immortal life.

Eirene Spence is an insomniac and a computer genius who loves walking in the park at midnight. She stumbles upon the Scatha Cruor and is almost killed until a handsome stranger rescues her. His touch ignites a hunger inside her that only he can satisfy.

He is her soul.

By some twist of fate, one of Eirene’s clients is Dac Valerian. She is able to tell Finn and the rest of the Cynn Cruor where Dac is hiding. Now Dac wants her dead.

Will Finn be able to keep Eirene alive and at the same time fulfill his mission? Will Eirene’s wish to be part of Finn’s life come true knowing that he is destined for someone else?

*Warning: intended for mature audiences 18+

This paranormal story is very unique, I think Isobelle has done a brilliant job of making the paranormal/supernatural world new to readers like me that read a lot in that genre.
The characters are refreshing and I loved how the story starts of with the characters backgrounds, so you feel connected to them right from the start. 
Finn is a Human/Vampire/Werewolf that is a member of the Cynn Cruor Clan, who are at war with the Scatha Cruor. Whilst out tracking his enemy, Finn comes across Eirene, who is an insomniac computer genius, trying to fight off three Scatha Cruor, and doing a pretty good job until she runs and hides and they find her, so in steps Finn to save to day. But in the process he gets injured and she ends up saving him.
Their story quickly evolves into one of sexual desire as he has to protect her from the enemy that his clan have been hunting for centuries.
This story is action-packed and I flew through it in a few hours, glued to the pages.
I can’t wait to read the next in the series.
