Kitty first met Anastasia when they were both being hunted by crazed fundamentalists. They helped each other survive and now, Anastasia wants Kitty's help again. The vampire behind the Long Game, Dux Bellorum (view spoiler), is after a magical object that would enable him to expand his army of mind-controlled supernatural creatures. Kitty and Anastasia are resolved to get the Dragon's Pearl before Roman does. But in the magical twisting tunnels beneath San Francisco's Chinatown, they find that the gods themselves have gotten involved...

The plot is basic but enjoyable. I liked the new characters introduced, Grace and Sun (view spoiler). But the pacing felt off, and I never felt scared for the characters. Cormac and Ben felt a little lifeless, even though this was Cormac's chance to shine. (view spoiler) This was probably my least favorite Kitty novel. It's still far better than most urban fantasy/paranormal romance out there, but I'm disappointed.
