Black and Gold. This theme weaves often throughout the book.
Kaleb Krychek is a double cardinal in the Psy population with so much power no one can possible bring him down. He is greatly feared by almost everyone. Well, except for his long lost Sahara Kyriakus, a member of the Nightstar clan and cousin to Faith. Her abilities have been well hidden her whole life. Only Kaleb, her kidnapper and her torturer know besides her father.
The story begins with Kaleb finally rescuing her and bringing her back to an isolated home where he nurses her back to health. He holds a secret in his head that could destroy any possibility of love between them.
To protect her mind he builds a shield of obsidian. He can only love her if he, himself is under a shield of obsidian. When you walk the net with him, he is the obsidian strand. She is the golden one.
Sahara has somehow managed to keep her conscience, her deep love for Kaleb and her desire to live all through 7 years of hellish captivity. But that is nothing compared to the horrendous upbringing of Kaleb, who never once stopped loving and needing Sahara. He is still a virgin.
This book touched every emotion. Anger, Frustration, Awe, Love but especially Humour just when you needed it the most. A book that makes me laugh out loud or cry a tear is at the top of my ratings. Could you not laugh at the results of these two making love? A hot kiss could throw a sofa against the wall, a blowjob causes a medium scale earthquake. To see these two steadfastly support each other no matter the cost to them self is so heartwarming. That feeling just grows and grows throughout this book. The ending is so beautiful you will want to read it several times.
Heart of Obsidian, is a rare jewel even among the other jewels in Singh’s collection. Loved it.
