I'm not sure what it was, but I just couldn't get into this book. Honestly the only reason why I finished the book was because it was the last one.
It was such a shame too, I thought the first one was amazing. But the rest of the books...they didn't have that spark that the first book had.
Everything about this book I found to be blah even the writing. Or maybe before the book there was a page that pretty much summarized the plot. So that alone pretty much ruined the book. I didn't find Mila and Jack plot interesting. I felt like maybe that would of been better fit in a novella. Even tying the two story lines felt rushed. Honestly the whole ending felt rushed. (less)

Even though they are generations apart I was wondering when someone would bring up that Brianna and Roger are related. Which I oddly find not very creepy since it's very distance.
And Ian! My heart broke at his outcome. Although with him spending all that time with the Indian girl, and even before spending most of his time with the local tribe that was near Fraiser Ridge, I wasn't that surprised. I just wished it was were they could still visit each other. (less)

It was more than I expected. Like it was warned it does read like a final book, but it leaves it open for so much more. I simply could not put it down. Yes Curran was gone for the first half of the book, but he returns in style. And makes it so much more amazing. I know I shouldn't like Hugh, but I can't help it. With the last book and this book, half the time I can't tell if Hugh wants Kate or if he wants to kill her. And Roland! Ever since Magic Bleeds, I began to suspect that Roland wasn't completely evil, that he wouldn't kill Kate if he found her. I couldn't help it but love Roland.
Below are some thoughts. Beware of spoilers:
(view spoiler)[ The mole! It wasn't that much of a shock. Originally when we first learned there was a mole for some reason I thought it could of been Robert. But with this book I shook it out of my head. My friend who finished the book before me told me about Kate going off on Jennifer. And at the beginning of the book Christopher told her to beware of the wolf. I just knew it then she was the mole. Jennifer hated Kate. It wasn't completely evil of Jennifer, I kind of understood the reasons but I'm glad it turned out how it did. I never did liked Jennifer. Desandra would be a much better Alpha. Which I completely loved Desandra in this book.
I can imagine some people not liking that Kate just waited to be rescued. It was more than that. Kate tried to get out. There was no way, it was impossible. And she knew Curran would come for her. She did the only thing she could do keep her and Ghastek alive. I think I liked it more this way. It hammered the fact that Curran will always come for Kate, no matter where she is at. He doesn't care who he has to kill to get to her, even his own people.
Speaking of Ghastek, loved the amounts that he was in this book. Not to mention his nearly meltdown when he realized who Kate really was. I wondered how differently the story would of turned if he had figured it out beforehand or even suspected.
Roland. Oh Roland. I loved the fact that he didn't want to kill Kate. He wants to know his daughter. Like I said above I had began to suspect he didn't want to kill her. Loved the fact that he said he wanted an invitation to the wedding. Even if Kate and Curran both saying no, I'm sure he will show up anyways, and who knows maybe bring Hugh with him. Now that I would love to see. And that note at the end! Love the fact that he wants grandkids and just decided he's going to insinuate himself in their lives.
And Nick the crusader! Related to Greg, that's interesting. And according to Ilona Nick is Greg's son. Intersting that Kate didn't know Greg had a son. Also anyone else caught that Kate told Jim that Greg had looked about 40 for the last 15 years she knew him. Wonder what that is about.
Kate claimed Atlanta! Between that scene and the one where Roland comes to them when it was revealed. Kate thought Roland would be pissed. But I knew right after when it said he just smiled and his face disappeared I knew he was proud.
And last not least Curran not being Beast Lord! At first I couldn't get over that! I can't imagine it. It won't be the same. But at the same time it was foreshadow. In Magic Bleeds Curran had told her he would leave the Pack in a heartbeat so they could be together. And even said that if Kate wanted to ran away and hide from Roland he would go with her. Even with Mahon speech in the last book telling Kate that she is pack, and besides the few in their inner circle, she will never fit in there. Yes she fought for them and thought of them as her people and most will support her. But Robert's speech about the no confidence vote. Most will feel that way. Not to mention if they stayed in the pack as Beast Lord and Consort everyone will know who Kate's father is. They will blame her. Especially knowing that Roland will come and burn everything and everyone. They would make Curran chose.
There was a few things that wasn't in the book that I wished it was. 1. No mentioned at all about the ring Curran gave her at the end of the last book. 2. I wanted to see the reaction of the Pack with the news who Kate really is. I know there is several in their inner circle that knows. But I wanted to see as a whole.
More importantly is Curran still technically part of the Pack? How will this affect the relationship between the ones that we love? Derek, Doolittle, Jim, Barbados? (hide spoiler)]
I keep finding myself re reading certain scenes/quotes. I'm sure this will cause a week long book hangover.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>(less)

I know a lot of people said it was one of their favorites of the year. I wouldn't go that far, I liked it a lot but it didn't knock me off my feet.
I loved the mystery about the planet. Although the ending kind of confused me a little. Well not confused but it took a bit for it to sink in what was going on. And I still don't think I understood it completely. I was hoping for it to be more to the mystery of the planet.
For once I wasn't annoyed by the duel POV, with one of them being a guy. I actually prefer Tarver's POV. And one of my favorite parts was the snippets of the interview at the beginning of each chapters. They were hilarious. (less)

I didn't really have a issue with Mallory, and Colton was ok. But I felt a lot of it, especially their first hook up was way too cheesey. Not to mention I thought Colt was too pushy through the whole book. I probably would of liked it better if he had backed off and let her around at her own pace. (less)

I only have 2 complaints, Rose and Lisa. Rose wasn't that bad, I just thought they could of done better for her. But Lisa...she was horrible. She didn't even look pretty.
It kept the key points. It helps to have read the actual book, but I think if you haven't you still get a sense of it. It's also a good way to refresh yourself on the book if you don't have time to read the whole thing, or if you want to give someone a crash course into the first book. (less)
