NightDrake by Lara Adrian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In this FREE post-apocalyptic romantic short story by New York Times #1 internationally best-selling author Lara Adrian, a tough mercenary known as Nisha the Heartless is hired to transport mysterious cargo from exotic New Asia to a well-paying client.
But things are never what they seem in a dark new world now populated by humans and the Strange: shapeshifters and telepaths, nymphs and hobgoblins. It is a lesson Nisha learns all too soon--one that puts her on a journey with a dangerously sexy, enigmatic man who will force her to confront the nightmares of her past, and risk her heart for a future she never dreamed could be hers....

This was kind of like getting to take one bite of a delicious dessert.
It was fast paced, as short stories tend to be, but the glimpse of the world was tantalizing and the characters were interesting. Loved the twist at the end of the story and the glimpse at the future of the characters. Overall a nice way to start a new year of reading.
