Highlights: *They have to visit Vayl's former Trust in order to take Edward Samos out. *All hell breaks loose when Jaz meets up with Disa, Vayl's former mate and lover. Sparks fly and fires follow and not the way you think. *The house has a life of it's own. Stephen King would be proud. *Jaz meets and enlists the help of werewolves and werebears. *Favorite addiiton to the team is Jack, a white fluffy Malamute!
Warnings: *You will get frustrated with Vayl. Tension is high while in the Vamp House. *Poor Cole just won't give up on Jaz. Poor Jaz can't seem to get through to Cole.
Favorite Quotes: "Your father sounds frightening," Trayton said. "He once made a general cry." "No." "I shit you not. The guy had to retire after that. I mean, really, who's going to follow your orders after some damn colonel's reduced you to tears?"
"Is your butt buzzing?" Cole, you have the worst timing! I jerked upright, tring to pull my phone out of my pocket and managing instead to bang my elbow against the wall. Ow! Oh, shit that hurts! You know, the guy who decided it should be a funny bone was just a freaking masochist. Or is it a sadist? I always get those mixed up."
"Hey, if you're going to price yourself, I say go high."

High points: *Bree can switch everything around and you will still like it. *Daniel remains a wonderful Boyfriend through to the end, but that doesn't mean you don't want to smack him every once and a while. *Most surprised with Brace. She really let the ball drop and put blinders on. *Finally we meet Gabriel! I was confused about him for most of the book.
Little issues: *the ride was crazier then expected. I almost put the book down. *Lying happened with about every character and it just got old. Lead to way too many heartbreaks. *Ending was a huge surprise, hope it will be righted in the next book.
Quotes: "If you let anger into your heart, it will push out your ability to love."

Before I go any farther I have to say that I love this series and have re-read it tons of times. I am now finally getting around to posting a review oBefore I go any farther I have to say that I love this series and have re-read it tons of times. I am now finally getting around to posting a review of this Great book and Amazing Series!
Warning: You may not be able to put this book down! Curran Addiction is a huge possibility!
Recommend: I recommend this to anyone who wants a Great Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance. It has enough for either of them. If you are looking for a Kick-Butt Female Character and a Sexy Alpha Male then look no farther!
Tons of Action and a dash of romance that adds to the flavor of the book. Yummy and deliciously filling.
We enter a "Whole New World" at the beginning of this book. Atlanta, Georgia (where the book takes place) and the rest of the world has suffered from a "magic apocalypse." We meet Kate Daniels right from the start. She is sitting at home enjoying her Boone's Farm Hard Lemonade. She gets a surprise visit from a Vampire who is being piloted by Ghastek, a Master Vampire. Kate is not happy having an undead in her house and shows her love by slicing it's throat open. Yes, she did that while she was sitting down. Ghastek proceeds to inform her that the man who helped raise her, Greg, has been murdered. For this information he asks for her help in solving the murder since one of his own was also killed off. We then get to watch as Kate wrestles her way into solving this murder to get revenge and closer for Greg. In the process she gains his home and more "power words." It seems that Atlanta's Shifters seem to be caught up in this mess as well. The Beast Lord himself, Curran, asks to meet with her and wants the same cooperation that the Vampires do. The stage is set and the players are let loose. It is a fight to the end to see who will come out on top and who is guilty of murder.
*Kate Daniels is one of my fav. female characters of all time. Her past is so messed up it is amazing she turned out decent at all. She is a fighter as she has been raised to be, by her mothers "lover."
*Curran is the ultimate sexy male in this book series and rivals many in other series in my opinion. He is the Alpha over all the shifters in the region. He shifts into a mighty, mighty lion. [image error]
"Here, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty"
"It's a reflex. Hear a bell, get food. See an undead, throw a knife. Same thing, really."
"Why a raven?" To honor my father." The writing under it, is that Cyrillic?" Yes." What does it say?" Dar Vorona. Gift of the Raven. I am my father's gift" The raven is holding a bloody sword." I never said it was a nice gift."
"Men and swords. My father said that if you put any able-bodied man, no matter how peaceful, into a room with a sword and a practice dummy and leave him alone, eventually the man would pick up the sword and try to stab the dummy. It is human nature."
"He finished the bandage and was examining it critically. “You know those things are unreliable”. His voice held just a touch of reproach. “Eleven out of twelve work fine. I’d say that’s better chances than getting an orgasm with a blind date and women still try”. ...more
Positives: *Original ideas about Vampire's and Hunter's. New take from a teen's view. *Dru is a capable character that has her up's anGreat New Series!!
Positives: *Original ideas about Vampire's and Hunter's. New take from a teen's view. *Dru is a capable character that has her up's and down's but learns that she can handle herself and help take care of Graves as well. *Graves is an interesting character so far. Orphaned but book smart, he is learning about Dru's world at a fast pace and keeping up. *Plenty of action once the character's and the plot is on a role. A little romance is tossed in just to spice it up. *Christophe is my fav. male character in the series. Can't help but love him and be terrified at the same time. Great addition.
Negatives: *I got weighed down with all the background. *A lot of repeating of phrases or scenes. I understood why they were there, but I just skimmed them to get back to where it left off. *Ending was abrupt, but next book made up for it.
"Better to be strong than pretty and useless."
"His shoulder bumped mine again. "Can I ask you something?"
I didn't answer. He was going to ask me anyway. People don't say that if they don't want to pry something out of you."
"I guess since the groin is the center of a guy's world, he rarely guesses it isn't the center of yours."
"You're not dead. You're too goddamn annoying to be dead."
"I searched for something witty to say, settled for bare honesty. "I want to pee."
"I've been bitten, beat up, tied to a bed, James Bonded out, and now you finish off by choking a goddamn teacher!"
"Why can't I have a normal girlfriend?" he asked the air over his head. "I finally meet someone I like and she turns out to be crazy."
"The smell of apple pies didn't quite fill the house, but it was there, a thread under everything else. It was kind of hard to take Christophe seriously when he smelled like baked goods. I wondered if other djampjir smelled like Hostess Twinkies and sniggered to myself." ...more

"You’re crude.” I’m crude?” You just offered to make me your whore.” To be the Consort of a Master vampire is an honor, Initiate, not an insult.” It’s an insult to me. I’m not going to be your—anyone’s—sexual outlet. When that . . . happens for me, when I meet him, I want partnership. Love. You don’t trust me enough for the former, and I’m not even sure you’re capable of the latter."
"Well?” “Well, what?” I waved a hand at the room. “Start genuflecting. Let’s see some knee action.” “You’re serious.” I lifted my brows. He responded in kind, but finally nodded his head, then walked between the couches. He dropped to one knee, then held out his hands.
“I’m monumentally sorry for the pain and humiliation that I caused you and your—” “Both knees.” “Pardon?” “I’d prefer to see both knees on the ground. I mean, if you’re going to grovel, be the best groveler you can, right?"
"He's twenty-nine. And what did you think he was going to look like?" She shrugged. "You know-old. Grizzled. Long white beard. Scruffy robes. Loveable, smart, a little absent minded." I bit back a grin. " I said 'sorcerer,' not 'Dumbledore.' So he's hot. It could be worse." ...more
