No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there’s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it…
As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate’s connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe—especially those closest to Kate.
As Roland’s long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend the Conclave, a gathering of the leaders from the various supernatural factions in Atlanta. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered there, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she’ll find herself embroiled in a war which could destroy everything she holds dear…

You know those kind of book that you just can’t wait for it to finish? Well, this isn’t one of them! I just want the story to continue and never end cause it was really stunningly good!!!
Another action packed, full of thrills and surprises and intense emotions!
Amazingly written! An explicitly narrated action scene that was just mind blowing! It’s like I’m in the centre of it all, watching every moves, every details… cheering for Kate to fight and never give up! Then, there are scenes that somehow I knew was coming, and my heart beats real fast, dreading and hoping… then the story takes me even way beyond my expectations! I say wow! Not to mention those mystifying and powerful scenes that still plays in my head even long after reading.
Kate’s character never bend or falter. She lives to fight, still lust for blood, but she is full of love! She will fight and even sacrifice herself if it will protect everyone she cares for. She is a powerful and an amazing fighter but there is that vulnerability in her that makes me just wanna give her a hug and wish everyone would give her a break, lol.
Curran was also again amazing! Perfect perfect alpha! His love and need for Kate is just intense, and vice versa.
I leaned over to him and kissed him. I kissed him, trying to tell him all of the things I couldn’t put into words. I tried to tell him that I loved him, that he meant everything to me, and that I would fight for him. Nobody would take him away from me, because if they tried, I would carve a path right through them. He kissed me back, and tasting him was heaven. He was right here, alive, warm, and mine—but only until tomorrow. I held on to him. I’d just gotten him back. I couldn’t lose him. Not now.
“I love you,” I told him.
“I love you, too.”.
In this sequel, Kate continues to deal with the affairs of the pack while still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat. Then one of the Masters of the Dead was found murdered and apparently at a hand of a shapeshifter, Kate must find the killer within twenty four hours… and stop a war that could kill everyone she cares for.
The book started with Barabas’s journal, giving you a thorough chronicle of the previous events, from the beginning to the present. I really loved that!
Then there are the supporting characters that is a huge part of the series. I love all of them… Even Desandra and Christopher surprised me in this sequel. Together they form a tight dysfunctional family.
Not to forget the humour….
“Hey, Kate? Have you thought of walking up to Hugh and telling him that he’s got the biggest dick ever?” She spread her arms to the size of a baseball bat.
“No, you think it would work?” I asked.
“It’s worth a try. Maybe he’ll be so happy you noticed his pork sword, he’ll forget all about trying to kill us.”
Pork sword. Kill me now. “I’ll think about it.”
Ascanio began patting his clothes.
“What?” Derek growled.
“Looking for something to take notes with.”
I really didn’t want the story to stop… I’m on what they call “book hangover”. 😉 HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
