No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there’s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it…
As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate’s connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe—especially those closest to Kate.
As Roland’s long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend the Conclave, a gathering of the leaders from the various supernatural factions in Atlanta. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered there, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she’ll find herself embroiled in a war which could destroy everything she holds dear…
I AM SO DISAPPOINTED!
I had high hopes for this, and I’m pretty bummed that they weren’t met. I didn’t enjoy the previous book thanks to the contrived relationship angst (among other things), but I still had full faith in this series. I’m sad to say that it’s beginning to slip. My main gripes:
– Plot filler abounds
– Deus ex machina
– Plot holes
– No chemistry
– Anti-Kate behavior
– Cheesy ending
– FUCKING RABBIT HOLE
Seriously, that last one. This was me for over half of this book:
The other half I was stuck at “What’s the fucking point of this scene?”
