Shannon K. Butcher--Falling Blind (Sentinel Wars #7)

Paranormal Romance

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 must protect a strong-minded woman from an incredible evil...

A beautiful, independent Theronai, Rory Rainey knows that her attempts to be a warrior are futile—unless she can stop the demonic visions that torment her. Determined to be free, Rory sets out to find the mysterious guardian who can cure her, before she loses her sight—or her life. But Rory’s journey brings its own dangers when she is attacked by a pack of Synestryn sent by the demon lord Raygh.

Cornered and desperate, Rory narrowly escapes with the help of a sword-wielding stranger. Cain knows that Rory needs his protection to survive, just as he knows that her power is compatible with his own. And when Rory binds herself to Cain, the warrior knows he will do anything to keep her safe from the threat of the demon lord that pursues her...

{3.5 stars}
Cain deserves some happiness, after all he sacrificed for Sybil, he should get his HEA. This one started out strong, but fizzled about two-thirds of the way in. I didn't connect with Rory, she was a little annoying to me. Maybe because I felt so much Cain, I didn't like the way she treated him in the beginning. And I actually put this one down and read 2 other books before picking it back up. But when I went back to it, I had a fresh impression of it and really enjoyed it. Rory turned out to be a strong character who helped save Cain in the end. The series moves along quite a bit in this one, and even if you don't like Rory either, it's important to read this one for the path of the series as a whole. There are a lot of key plot points that happen. The traitor to Dabyr is revealed, another Synestryn goes down, and we lose a few more Theronai. And who is Justice? That looks like an interesting storyline. Overall, not the best in the series, but worth the read for the series as a whole.
