Blurb: The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her — not necessarily in that order.
Now a mortal lover who abandoned Rachel has returned, haunted by his secret past. And there are those who covet what Nick possesses — savage beasts willing to destroy the Hollows and everyone in it if necessary.
Forced to keep a low profile or eternally suffer the wrath of a vengeful demon, Rachel must nevertheless act quickly. For the pack is gathering for the first time in millennia to ravage and to rule. And suddenly more than Rachel’s soul is at stake.
Review: This one was such a disappointment, I really wanted this book to be as great as the others but, it just fell so short. I started this book on the 6th and it took me 9 days to finish. I don’t think I’ve ever spent that much time on a book that was this boring but, the plot was what kept me turning the pages. Safe to say that I was not impressed.
Oh my goat, it was so boring and, unlike the others, so repetitive. I really struggled through this, I just kept wanting to put it down and leave it alone. The plot was still interesting enough to keep me from completely forgetting about it but goodness, if the next book is like this, I don’t think I can make myself finish it. Not after the fight I had with this one.
The action really died down on this one and it was predictable. The little action there was, was short lived and didn’t really help. There were a few funny lines that I liked but I just can’t stand when a book has characters that just sit around and talk and that’s exactly what this book did.
It felt like that one monotone teacher that everyone has in at least one class and everyone is struggling to stay awake.
I’m still in love with the series, I still want to go on with it however, if I ever re-read this series, I may just end up skipping this book.
Thank you for reading my review.
