Dreamspinner Presents

Sequel to Hell & High Water

When a series of bombs go off in a Therian youth center, injuring members of THIRDS Team Destructive Delta and causing a rift between agents Dexter J. Daley and Sloane Brodie, peace seems unattainable. Especially when a new and frightening group, the Order of Adrasteia, appears to always be a step ahead. With panic and intolerance spreading and streets becoming littered with the Order’s propaganda, hostility between Humans and Therians grows daily. Dex and Sloane, along with the rest of the team, are determined to take down the Order and restore peace, not to mention settle a personal score. But the deeper the team investigates the bombings, the more they believe there’s a more sinister motive than a desire to shed blood and spread chaos.
Discovering the frightful truth behind the Order’s intent forces Sloane to confront secrets from a past he thought he’d left behind for good, a past that could not only destroy him and his career, but also the reputation of the organization that made him all he is today. Now more than ever, Dex and Sloane need each other, and, along with trust, the strength of their bond will mean the difference between justice and all-out war.



I love book series, especially ones that continue a story line and characters. It gives the author more opportunities to develop and expand personalities and the alternative world the story is taking place.

Sloane is dealing with several issues. The loss of his partner, and who and what he was when he first changed over into a shifter. Guilt rides high on both accounts to the point it is starting to interfere with his job and his sex life.

Dex is good at watching and understanding what is going on around him. He sees things that people don’t know they are showing. He deals with stressful situations with humor. Yet he is also that knight in shining armor who will risk life and limb to rescue a fallen teammate.

We get more of the story on how the shifters came to be as well as the story behind the development of THIRDS. We learn more about the other members of the team and how they work with each other.

Entertaining, with some mystery, some back story some great sex scenes and the promise of more. I can’t wait to read the next in the series!
