4 stars
4 stars – It was really good

Derek Grant has separated from the pack and became a lone wolf. Now he haunts the streets of Atlanta protecting the people who live there. While on the hunt of a killer, he teams up with Julie to track the magic. 

While Derek and Julie have both been important side characters throughout the series this is their first actual story. Derek has been one of my favorite side characters in this series. He started as a teenager who used his looks and is now a hardened shifter who can take care of himself. He is still struggling with all the changes in his life though and I am interested in seeing what will happen with him in the future. 

I feel like Julie is still a pretty minor character even though she is an important one. We don’t really know a lot about her or her feelings of what is going on. We learn in this one that she is honing her magic with help. I really can’t wait to see how Kate reacts to that when she finds out. 

I enjoyed this adventure with Julie and Derek a lot more than I was expecting. I do hope we get more stories from their POV’s in the future because I know it will be interesting. Also I don’t want this series to end.
