Sam Sarkhan is in a dark place wanting to end it all. He mistakenly puts in the wrong number while trying to reach his brother on New Year’s Eve and hears someone on the other end who is going through the motions just like him. Even though he doesn’t know her background or her name he feels like he has found a kindred spirit and wants to find out more about her. Ellie McLaren is a 9-1-1 operator and loves to help people, but one too many losses has her ready to end everything. If it hadn’t been for that stranger calling in the nick of time she may have gone through with her plan. Maybe Sam can help her out of her darkness? Or they can save each other? Things go sideways when his father comes after him and threatens Ellie’s life if he doesn’t submit to his demands. Sam and his brothers have been trying to stop their father for years with no luck. Will Sam lose the woman he has fallen in love with or will he and his brothers finally be able to best the monster they call father?
The Dark Sparrow series by India Kells is amazing. Every time I see a book with her name on it I don’t hesitate to pick it up without reading the blurb. Any one of these books could be read as a stand alone, but I feel that they are best read together and in order.
