Cat and Bones have had a rough time lately. With all the attacks on each other and their friends they've earned some R&R, which unfortunately they don't get. A ghoul figure head is causing all kinds of trouble for Cat and Bones, he's creating a war campaign against they vampires saying they wish to enslave all ghouls. He is also targeting Cat as saying she's not quite right and too powerful to let live. This isn't the first time this guy has stirred up hate and war against the vampires and this time he isn't going to settle for peace.
This book was a lot about character development and changes. Almost all the characters were starting a new phase in their lives. Cat is trying really hard to change and treat Bones like an equal and not do things behind his back anymore. She doesn't want anything to come between them. Things are also changing at her old job, new management, and some new recruits throw Cat way off balance. As always I love Vlad, he is my absolute favorite side character, he cracks me up and we got to see a lot of him in this book.
I can't wait/hope for his own story when he finds a love for himself. If/ when that happens I want Cat to give her the smack-down of if you hurt to emotionally fragile friend I will kill you. Vlad is an emotional friend for Cat, he doesn't know what to do with this true new friend that he would virtually do anything for. He's used to putting his people first, but finds that he will protect and help Cat at whatever cost. I LOVE HIM! Also we only got a little of Ian in this book, but as usually he had a real zinger one liner. I really enjoyed this book, it had me laughing and crying and I can't wait to see what happens next....more
At the start of this book Kate is working at her new office which has been open for two months now and has yet to receive a customer. Ted from the OrdAt the start of this book Kate is working at her new office which has been open for two months now and has yet to receive a customer. Ted from the Order has been black balling Kate and saying that she messed up the operation with Erra and was to blame for people dying. Andrea walks back into Kate's life after being gone and we find out where she has been and what she has been doing (FYI she took Kate's dog, I did not like this). But Andrea is back now and Kate forgives her almost immediately.
Kate and Andrea receive a job from a person in one of the previous books. They are to relocate an inventor and his project that was stolen. This beginning was pretty slow to me. It took awhile to get into just because there were so many questions that needed to be solved, there was no real sense of urgency. But when Kate and Andrea figure out what exactly was stolen and what it could do, they must retrieve it before it is turned on or many lives will be taken, including those of Kate and her friends.
This book held the same old Kate, whom I love. She had plenty of snark and jokes which are always amusing. But also in this book we more learn about Kate's family and her past. Her mother is brought up and Kate learns more about her and Voron, not all of it good. Another also makes her question Curran and what exactly his motives for mating with her were/are. Curran was also awesome. I was afraid that now that they are finally together things would fizzle and we would loose that Kate and Curran spark. But they did not everything is the same between them (still are snarky and like to tease each other) but now they just play for the fun of it. I can't wait to read the next installment in this series because by the end of the last page you will know what Kate is facing next!...more
