Rating: 4 Stars
In the wake of ridding their territory of a menace, Sasha has only one pressing duty left: find more human magic workers. And while it is undoubtedly important on some grand scale, the task is, in itself, surprisingly uneventful. That is, until a strange predator takes an interest in her and Charles on their trek home one evening. In the space of twenty-four hours Sasha’s life goes from mundane to being stalked and threatened. A new shifter has moved into town, and if the whispered rumors are to be believed, something even more sinister is lurking behind, watching and waiting for the right moment to spring.
But that isn’t the only element that turns Sasha’s life upside down. She has one hell of a secret that will change her and Stefan’s life forever.
*I was given this book in exchange for an honest review*
Book 6!! yaaaaaaaaayyyY!!!!! 🙂 This made me so happy! I was very happy to read this so soon after Book 5. At first i loathed the pace. I really really love a fast paced action packed book. Really, but after Book 5 it was nice to relax and enjoy the story and dynamic of all it’s current characters while also being introduced to new characters. It was lovely. We find someone who is very very similar to Sasha BUT fits in so much better with the clan. We find out all the work and sasha’s new mission and JUST when you think that this book is gonna be boring BLAM!!!! We get punched in the face with a surprise!!! and then another one. We see a lot of interaction with the Cato and the council with hints of more upcoming council intrigue. There is also a lot of clan interaction with the Mata – I really enjoy these parts. I can’t wait to see who Anne snares.
This was a fantastic and quick read. I usually can’t help but be frustrated with how quickly a book ends but honestly this was the perfect length and pace after reading the council. We see a COMPLETELY different side of Stefan and Sasha as well as the clan as a whole. We certainly see how Jonas exercises his patience with Sasha – more than he already has that is. The tone of this installment was so completely DIFFERENT from the other novels. For once no one is trying to kill Sasha or capture Stefan. This sounds like it would make for a boring book but it doesnt! you get all mushy and intrigued with the new human and then WHAM! you get molly whopped with something NEW! Its exciting AND relaxed if that makes any sense. I am really happy i stuck with this series over all. I can’t wait to read Jonas and look forward to some serious ass kicking in that book. This one was perfect…. AND THEN!!!
DUN DUH DUN!!!!! THE ENDING!! it almost killed me! I almost had a panic attack and started yelling at my kindle! This simply cannot be!! WHAT IS GOING ON!!!!! NO! NO! This cant be happening! AH ah! Ah! Noooo! [this is what i was mentally screaming at myself while reading the last little bit of the book] The end. wait. what. (hard clicking to turn non existant pages on my kindle) no! ugh come ON! I NEED the next book ASAP! seriously the ending i wouldn’t say it was complete cliff hanger but it definitely leaves you in suspense. You are so curious you consider messaging the Author on facebook to cheer her on to write faster. Sasha is gonna go balls to the wall wild in the next one AND! we get to find out more about our favorite: Jonas.
DUH! I’d tell anyone to read this series if they love some good ass kicking urban fantasy. It’s lovely to see the characters grow as a individuals and as a whole.
