After breaking from life with the Pack, mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate - former Beast Lord Curran Lennart - are adjusting to a very different pace. While they're thrilled to escape all the infighting, Kate and Curran know that separating from the Pack completely is a process that will take time.
But when they learn that their friend Eduardo has gone missing, Kate and Curran shift their focus to investigate his disappearance. As they dig further into the merc's business, they discover that the Mercenary Guild has gone to hell and that Eduardo's recent assignments are connected in the most sinister way…
An ancient enemy has arisen, and Kate and Curran are the only ones who can stop it - before it takes their city apart piece by piece.

I've been looking forward to reading this one impatiently, so when the paperback finally released I snatched it up as soon as it fell on my doormat. I enjoyed the story, the different dynamics now Kate doesn't have to live according to Pack protocol anymore. And of course, their friends don't leave them alone. It was fun to see how they accomplished that!
And a very surprising twist in this book as well, the link between ghouls and djinns and what they are capable of. Lots of action and fighting and scary creatures, and a little bit of time for Kate and Curran to enjoy living together. I enjoyed watching Julie in this book, and can't wait to find out more about her future. And I am very disappointed in Saiman, I wonder how Kate will take that. Her father surprises me, and her I think. So far, I think he is genuine in wanting to be part of her life, but going about it all wrong. Still, dinner together was fun.

Recommended series!

10 stars.

  1. I felt the same way. I really loved this book. I'm really interested in seeing how things play out with Roland. I also love seeing Dali as the consort.

    1. Yes, Dali is great in that role! And I do want more Roland as well, I still think he is not as evil as Kate thinks concerning herself.

  2. Another series I have to start one day. A have several of the books, but haven't started yet. One day
