It was a cruel fucking joke that a woman who touched him so deeply
could never be the one he needed to survive.

They are the Sentinels. Three races descended from ancient guardians of mankind, each possessing unique abilities in their battle to protect humanity against their eternal foes: the Synestryn. Now a warrior weighs the price he will pay for love....
Theronai warrior Torr has never forgotten Grace, the human who stole his heart and nearly gave her life to save his. So when he is summoned to the aid of Brenya, the powerful woman who healed Grace, he is devastated to find that Grace’s cure has left her mind devoid of any memory of Torr or their love.
However, despite not knowing who he is, Grace is inexplicably drawn to the dark warrior. As they team up to stop the invasion that threatens the people Grace now considers family, her memories slowly start resurfacing. But sometimes the past is best forgotten—a lesson that Torr may learn too late.
Some things are best left forgotten - like this book.
I love the Sentinel Wars series and had crazy curiosity for how Torr's story would play out with Grace, the human woman who gave her health and very life to save his.
She's a woman too
Grace holds absolutely no value for her own life. She's no fighter. She's a survivor simply because people just won't stop saving her. Her selflessness is both beautiful and admirable... and equally exhausting. The level of annoyance this woman achieved with me is chart worthy. I just wanted it to end. Whether she died or Torr became human and they disappeared together made little difference. I just needed the whole ordeal to get out of my head.
The last twenty percent is the best part of this book. Sadly, you'll have to survive the first eighty percent of Grace's pathetic existence to get to it.
