Roxsan, would it be alright if you change this thread into a spoiler thread for the whole book after release date? Smile

I know everyone is going to vanish to read for a day or two, and then would rush here to see what everybody else thinks...it would be nice to be able to discuss it with spoilers and all. Very Happy

Roxsan: Did you try editing the subject line of the very first post in this thread?

Spoiler:
I think that comes from before it is revealed that he is the Ghost. I'm pretty sure he is, as Kaleb talks to Judd and Xavier in it, ect. He seems to be the same person from what I've picked up earlier this week.

I am happy to give spoilers! What kind do you want? Character interaction spoilers? Ghost spoilers? Lineage spoilers? Smexy spoilers? Smile

Edit: Cause I can. Spoiler contains high levels 'hot damn!'. You have been warned. Razz

Spoiler:
"A kiss", she whispered, starting at Kaleb's profile as he took in the damage done by his telekinetic strength with a clinical eye. "One kiss."
Kaleb, his upper body gilded by the sunlight, angled his face towards her. "I'll have to refine my shields- they failed against the intensity of the contact." Sahara released a shuddering breath, her breasts heavy and almost painful. "Are you safe on the PsyNet?" If his shields failed on the mental plane, his mind would become as vulnerable as hers had been before he'd extended his shields to protect her. "If any of what we're experiencing leaks-"
"There's been no breach." A pause before he shifted to face her, one of his hands lightly cupping the side of her jaw, his eyes a black inferno."I want more."

Hmm.....the only Aden and Vasic spoilers I can think of right now would ruin the end of the book. I'll get back to you. Gotta browse my kindle for something that doesn't occur at the end. Very Happy

IN spite of the late hour, he was working at his desk, his dark hair pristine, his steel gray shirt unwrinkled in the slightly yellow-tinged light from the table lamp that provided the only illumination in the room.
Looking up when she came in, the roiling darkness she’d glimpsed in the bedroom yet visible in his eyes, he said, “Yes?” The dead calm of his voice had her hesitating, the decision she’d made a painful hope she couldn’t bear to have crushed.
“Sahara,” he said at her silence, “if you’re here for a reason, speak. If you’re not, leave.”
Swallowing at the cold warning that told her not to push him, she took a seat in the chair on the other side of his desk. He watched her with the unblinking gaze of a predator so deadly, the world had never seen anything like him.
“Where”— she wet a throat gone dry as a desert sun—“ where are the rest?” His eyes didn’t move off her. Trembling within, she lifted her fisted hand in front of her. Platinum shimmered in the golden light as her fingers fell open. A moment of absolute, endless silence, and then Kaleb blinked and the stars were back in his eyes. Not breaking the eye contact that threatened to brand her from the inside out, he laid his right hand palm-up on his desk. Seven charms lay on his skin between one heartbeat and the next.
Biting back tears as the most secret part of her keened in joy, she leaned closer, hand rising. He drew the charms away. Anger flashed, hot and raw. “They’re mine.” “That’s not how it works.”
Scowling, and wanting the charms, she sat back in the chair as he stood and moved around the table with that deadly grace that always drew her eye, her body taut with a very adult tension.
Breath shallow, she slipped the bracelet over her wrist, snicked the clasp into place, and held out her arm toward him.
“Now.” Leaning against the desk in front of her, he lifted his hand and a single charm appeared between his fingertips.
“Seventeen.”
“A compass.” To find my way home. Heart breaking, she looked her fill of him as he finished hooking the charm onto the bracelet, and again, she asked herself who he was to her. Who had he been to her, this beautiful man who might be so deeply damaged as to be forever broken?

Sorry, I don't know why it doesn't copy the paragraph format. Shocked I thought to fix it, but it may not reflect how it was done in the book. ^^;

HE GLANCED UP, a lock of hair falling across his forehead, midnight dark against his golden skin. For a fleeting instant, she saw the boy he’d once been, all silky hair and quiet eyes, and she knew the memory was true. Her and Kaleb, whatever it was that tied them together, it had begun long before she was thirteen, begun when they were both children.
“Hurry,” she whispered, helpless as her other hand rose to push that errant lock off his forehead. He didn’t move away, didn’t repudiate her touch.
“Eighteen.” A second charm appeared between his fingers. She twisted her head this way and that to try to see what it was as he hooked it into place, but he deliberately blocked her sight. She saw the reason why when he straightened.
“An unsheathed blade.” What he had become the day she vanished.
“Nineteen.” He began to hook the charm on before she saw the telekinetic fetch. A small home. The rock that was her heart grew heavier.
“Twenty.”
“Twenty.” This one, he let her see. A tiny heart formed of a deep blue stone, so very beautiful it made her breath release in a sigh.
“Sapphire?”
“Tanzanite.” His eyes met hers.
“Rare. Unique.” A frozen heart, she thought, her wonder swirled with a haunting sorrow. His heart or hers?
“Twenty-one.” An hourglass.
“Twenty-two.” A fragment of jagged obsidian, edges smoothed only enough not to cut her skin.
“Twenty-three.” A single, perfect star. Frowning, she looked up at him. “I don’t understand.” He hooked the charm into place.
“Only this star matters.” His thumb brushing over her inner wrist. “Should it be erased, no other has the right to live.”
“I’d line the streets with bodies before I’d ever hurt you.” A wave of black rushed through her in a nightmare of understanding.
“What’s twenty-four?” she managed to ask through the roar, curling her wrist close to her chest.
“As yet undecided.”
“I know what I want.” This battle was one she had to win, not only for the future of the world, but for herself, for Kaleb, for what they might have been  .  .  . what they could be. A waiting silence from the man who would’ve annihilated an entire civilization in vengeance for her, ending the lives of millions, innocents and sinners alike.
“A sheath for the blade,” she whispered. The stars faded into black.
“That might not be possible.” It can’t be too late, she thought again. She refused to let it be too late, refused to believe he was forever gone, the damage permanent. “I want jewels on the sheath, bright and colorful.” And hopeful.
“It’ll require considerable work,” he said softly, the obsidian of his gaze holding her own, “might even be an impossible task.”
“Are you surrendering, then?” It was a question as soft. “Walking away?” Kaleb’s response held a possessiveness that might yet keep her a prisoner.
“I will never walk away from you.”

If you're ordering the e-book version from amazon, go to 'manage my kindle' page and change your country settings to 'united states'. Then create a fake US billing address in your 'address settings' page. You should then be browsing the american listings for books. This will allow you to purchase Heart of Obsidian on the American release date (June 4th). You will have to cancel your previous pre-order first though. Smile (This is what I've been doing since forever to get e-books on the American (=earliest) release date hehe)

Ooooh! I now know who the Ghost is, who his relative is, who saved Ana from the train accident and who the heroine is.

Spoiler:
The Ghost is Kaleb, his father was Santano Enrique, Kaleb saved Ana from the train accident and the heroine is Sahara NightStar.

The external damage? she asked, pulse racing at the memory of her shock when she'd looked absently out the kitchen window after they'd shared their bodied-to see huge gashes in the landscape as far as the eye could see, as if the earth had been cracked like an egg.
Limited to a five-hundred-meter radius around the house. I fixed the cracks after 'porting you to DarkRiver Territory.
She knew she should be worried about the fact that she'd been in bed with a man who'd caused that kind of telekinetic control during intimacy, but she felt her lips kick up at hte corners. So we litarally made the earth move?
A slight pause, before Kaleb said, I suggest we don't engage in sex in populated areas.
The cool comment made her burst into laughter.
