Yes, it can be read alone. With doing that, you might not understand all that is going on.(less)
Deitriah The other books in the series say a little bit about the Fae, just not much. She might have one after that does, in this series.

This book was amazing, Nicky Charles does not disappoint! It was dark and thrilling and keeps you guessing until the end. I never want this series to end, it's going to feel like the loss of a great friend when it inevitably does :(. ...more
Okay, let me start by saying this book, in fact the whole series, was free. The author only asks that the reader consider making a donation to their local animal shelter or food bank, which is pretty awesome when you think about it. And now for the book...

It's a little hard to figure out where to read which book in the series. Having previously read 'Bonded,' which is a prequel for the series and ended with a big question mark hanging over the side character of Damien, I decided to read this one

I started this series a couple of years ago during one summer vacation. The main allure being that they're light and predictable. But after I got back from my vacation I just didn't feel like continuing so the rest have been sitting on my Kindle ever since.

I had a bit of a hard time remembering what had happened before in the series but I quickly got back into the feel of the Lycan world. The characters are fairly engaging and after a few chapters I started to develop some emotional attachment.

First off, let me say how selfless I think it is that Nicky Charles writes these books and just asks that you make a donation equal or greater to the price of a regular book to either an animal rescue place or a food bank. Just like I did last time, I donated to an organization that goes in to natural disaster locations after they occur and rescues the pets that are left behind. What a great cause!

Damien Masterson (from Bonded) is in this book again. He has found out that his mate Beth and their

Betrayed: Days of the Rogue by Nicky Charles
Sequel to Bonded
Damien Masterson lost Beth, his blood-bonded mate and unborn baby in a house explosion. It destroyed him. When he learned it was not an accident, he exploded. The ex-Enforcer is now considered a dangerous rogue, also number one on the most wanted list. And a man set on revenge is dangerous.

Eve is just learning that she has Fae abilities. She is empathic and can feel what others feel. She has to get out of the city, away from feeling so

This one broke my heart. Damien, oh Damien. His blood mate and unborn child have been killed.

There is a mystery here. Just who are the good guys and who are the bad? Sometimes the line is very thin, that's for sure.

We get to see more of Reno and Brandi as we meet Rafe, a 1/4 Fae, half were. We also meet Eve. She's an artist and half Fae. In Ms. Charles canon, the Fae are empaths. And someone wants them wiped off the face of the earth.

Throw in a serial killer and this was a serious page turner!

On the bright side, the writing and editing are much improved from the first book in the series. But I still had issues with the pacing of the storyline. It started to drag just before halfway. When you ask yourself after a chapter (yes, a chapter, not just a scene), what the point was to it, it's just not good reading. Did it advance the storyline? Did it add to the characterization/relationship between the main characters? When the answer is no, it just makes the reading drag.

This book twice forced me to reassess my own opinions. I generally am discouraged when a series that has previously been based on a single paranormal species, such as werewolves, starts throwing in other species, such as fae. I've found it to usually indicate that the series is loosing focus, which is rarely a good thing. However, despite my dismal expectations it worked here. Charles managed to introduce a broader paranormal panorama without letting the series loose shape. Kudos. Secondly, I wa ...more

Ok first off i did only give this book 3 stars compared to the others getting 4 because it didnt really have me rushing to turn the page, i stopped reading it half way through and after a few months i finally finished it yesterday :-)
I dont know if it was because Fae was added into it as it didnt keep my attention or if it was will they wont they wiv Rafe and Eve !?!? Which dragged through the whole book with them blowing hot and cold..... Ok enough moaning lol.
It was still a great book just it

My usual style of reviewing won't work for this book due to spoilers. There's just too much that could giveaway the whole story. Nicky Charles writing evokes many emotions both felt and seen into her story. This book is no exception to that thought. I loved this diving back into the history of the Lycans! No more thoughts except this Happy Reading! ...more
I started reading this story and was pulled into the story because it had an interesting premise. I like when you have a paranormal species who is doing something just a bit different then you may be used to them doing. I happen to love shifters of any type and these are some great Lycans, written in such a way that you can’t help but be interested in what they are involved in. The dialogue is good for the characters and fits the personalities of each as they have been described. There was no dr ...more

This is a brilliant addition to the Law of the Lycan series. It has taken a while for this book to come out but well worth the wait.

This is Eve and Rafe's story initially, both part fae and one is also half lycan. Eve is in the awakening stage of her fae life and Rage will do anything to protect her, including making sure that she stays away from ex enforcer and wanted rogue Damien.

Damien is one of the characters that is mentioned through out the series and this book does help bring to light jus

I skimmed through a fair bit of this at the start as I was in that aggravating really-want-to-read-something-but-don't-have-time-to-read-anything state. Near the end I ended up reading it more thoroughly, however, although I still skimmed over some paragraphs. I didn't read it in enough depth to really know what I felt about Eve and Rafe, although some things - like in most fiction, truthfully - worried me as they were things that I'd hope people wouldn't accept in real life, but in fiction they ...more

Betrayed Days of the Rogue was an interesting read. I was skeptical about the book at first. I have read all of Nicky Charles’s books and have loved them all, but when you introduce the Fae into a werewolf scenario, I thought that maybe the author may have jumped the shark. To my surprise it worked. I think that this book is a sequel to the prequel and not a continuation of the initial series. I don’t want to give too much away. I enjoyed the book. Eve’s character is a smart and strong woman. Sh ...more

I like this series, but this one wasn't one of the better ones. I felt so confused due to Damien. At first I thought he was the foil for a love triangle. I didn't really like that as it seemed like he was still mourning Beth and he moved on a little too fast. I was also confused on his role, was he a rogue or was he doing something more. Even considering the second portion there was more to that.

As for the romance between Rafe and Eve, it was just meh... for me. Rafe was an ass for much of the b

I had previously read all of Ms, Charles books and did a happy dance when I saw she had released a new book....As with her other books, I was not disappointed....I admit that I did have to go back and refresh my memory from "Bonded" so I could ease back into the story.
Damien and his struggles with the death of his wife and the struggles of which side he should be own....and Rafe....of my! What a lucky empath Eve is...Looking forward to the next adventure.....I mean, a sexy werewolf riding off on

So I absolutely love Nicky Charles and the other books in the Lycan series. I had a little trouble getting through this one. It was nearly a thousand pages long, and the first 650 pages seemed to DRAG on forever. I didn't have near the connection with Rafe and Eve that I've always had with her other main characters. I was also really pulling for Damien, and I'm certain that even though this wasn't my favorite read, I will continue reading this series because I really do love the other characters ...more

Although, it is not bad this book was my least favorite in the series. It dragged at the start for me. Yes, it did pick up but it took a little bit. This book has not only wolves but also Fae. This book is all about the sexy Damien and what happens to him after his wife dies. I have to say I was so sad for him.

I enjoyed all of the books in the series and even better they were all Free~

Betrayed: Days of the Rogue promised to be an intriguing read, highlighting one of my favourite characters - Damien. However I will admit to being slightly disappointed as he wasn't in it as much as I wanted. Now, don't get me wrong. He still plays a major part in this book, but mainly it is about Eve and Rafe (which I guess is as it should be being as they're the romantic stars!) Still, Damien is such a fantastic character that I wanted more.

Moving on - this book has plenty of twists and turns,
