Since Merit was turned into a vampire, and the protector of Chicago’s Cadogan House, it’s been a wild ride. She and Master vampire Ethan Sullivan have helped make Cadogan’s vampires the strongest in North America, and forged ties with paranormal folk of all breeds and creeds, living or dead…or both.
But now those alliances are about to be tested. A strange and twisted magic has ripped through the North American Central Pack, and Merit’s closest friends are caught in the crosshairs. Gabriel Keene, the Pack Apex, looks to Merit and Ethan for help. But who—or what—could possibly be powerful enough to out-magic a shifter?
Merit is about to go toe to toe, and cold steel to cold heart, to find out.
First, I must say that there really needs to be a spin-off of this series for the shifters. Because Damien Garza needs a book, he is just to yummy to be a side character!
Back to the story at hand. Merit and the gang are at it again, they just can't catch a break. We move straight from the drama with the GP into a shifter kidnapping mystery. All the gang are in play plus some new ones (the yummy Damien Garza). In the overall series storyline, this one isn't the most exciting, and we don't get to spend enough time with just Ethan and Merit, but it does move the story into what's coming down the road....the GP. Looking forward to the next one!
*As a kid I loved Nancy Drew, Scooby Doo, Buffy, and even Veronica Mars. If you are a fan of "off" the norm mysteries with some hot alpha males thrown in, then this is the series for you.
