Linda C (libladynylindac) | 1155 comments Hugh is devastated by being exiled by Roland. His former soldiers find the drunken, shattered Hugh and tell him Roland is now hunting and killing all the Iron Dogs because of their loyalty to Hugh. This knocks him out of his stupor and he pulls the remaining 300 together. However, they need a home base. Elara Harper and her people are looking for protection. They have been driven from many places and want to settle in a Kentucky fortress they have found. Because of both their reputations they need to marry to convince enemies they are a united front. Their relationship starts as more hate than love, with great banter. A series of enemies from both MCs appear with plenty of reasons for battles. Hugh and Elara have secrets and pasts to overcome, major trust issues, and hidden talents.

I think the conversion of Hugh from bad guy to 'hero' (still many rough spots) is superb. That takes real talent. The constant one-upsmanship between Hugh and Elara is hilarious. Great adventure.

Nicole R (drnicoler) | 7784 comments Interesting premise! And, I like the title. Is this YA? And is it a standalone or part of a trilogy/'series?

annapi | 5159 comments Not YA. This is the first book of a new series, but the character is taken from an established series (Kate Daniels) which is up to book 10 already. You don't really need to read the other series to get this one, they give enough information for newbies, though you'll likely feel you've missed something in the interactions between characters from the other series that appear for a short while in this book. Then again, this might just serve to intrigue you enough to pick up Kate's series.

Anything written by Ilona Andrews (who is really a husband/wife writing team, Ilona and George) is worth reading, they are badass writers.
