I used to think vampires were extinct, but it turns out, they’re merely hiding. When my pack stayed with some vamps a while back, I couldn’t believe how prickly and rude they all were… all but one: Dregan. I met him and my wolf went crazy, wanting to be close, wanting to rub up on him, wanting to bite him. It makes no sense. Vampire blood and shifter blood don’t mix. In fact, I’d never survive if I ever get a taste of what I so desperately desire. But I can’t get that vampire out of my head, even weeks and months after we left him.
When a little wolf caught my attention, I was surprised but intrigued. The more time he spent in my den, the more I wanted him to stay close. This little innocent wolf was driving me mad, making me want a little taste. But there’s a reason my den has been hiding for hundreds of years, and no matter how badly I crave that little wolf, I can’t have him. I couldn’t risk him getting hurt just to satisfy my needs, so I let him go. Though, nothing I do will make me forget how good he smelled, how delicious I know his blood would taste.
With something cruel and dark hunting Dregan and with Chris’s pack hiding from an evil force, will they ever be able to come together and help one another? Or will they let the evils of the world overtake them and let fear overshadow their desires?

Neo~ The first time I saw him, he took my breath away. He’d looked across the courtyard and made eye contact with me, and I hadn’t been able to look away. The only way I knew how to find him again was by becoming a bestower—a human that allowed vampires to feed from them. Dorian~ His blood was more alluring than any other I’d encountered before, which was saying something. I’d seen, and tasted, my fair share of bestowers. But I’d never smelled one that made me want to forget the rules, forget the consequences. I wanted his blood—and his body. What will happen when human and vampire come together? Will one night of passion be it for the couple or is it possible that there’s more than only lust at play?
Just like with book 2, I had to do a bit of skimming for book 3, not nearly as much, but a little, because the first quarter is all about pain and separation, and I just can’t handle that much angst.
However, I loved this story and the evolution of our characters even further. Without giving away too much, there’s some boats involved and a really lovely new option for our little pack and it’s new set of friends in the vampire coven.
There is a super lot of lovey dovey smexy times in this one as well, but for the most part, I thought it fit in well with the story.
I am excited by the little cliff hanger we’re given at the end of book 3.5 and can’t wait for our story to continue.
The magic and powers and shifter-ness in these books is what keeps me hooked on this series. Usually I’d stay clear of dystopian stories but all the wonderful world building and really well developed characters and relationships has absolutely got me enthralled!
