5 stars – I loved it!

With nothing to lose, Elise Chase prowls the streets of Boston searching for the rogue vampires who took everything from her. Using her psychic gifts to track rogues gives her a new purpose but she needs to learn how to truly harness her gift if she wants to be a successful hunter, and she needs Teagan for that. 

This book was just as good as I remembered it being. Teagan is one of my favorite Breed warriors. He has been the quiet but deadly Gen One Breed throughout this series but in this book we finally get to learn more about him and his feelings. After the death of his first mate, he shut himself off from feeling anything and that has worked for hundreds of years but Elise changes everything for him. She challenges him and makes him feel again. There is a lot of him giving in to his feelings then quickly pushing Elise away again because he is terrified of feeling again. I actually really liked that because if he had given in easily it wouldn’t have fit with the emotionless warrior he is. 

Elise was a very strong woman. She has lost so much in her life. I really enjoyed watching her embrace her new life and start to embrace her abilities. I really like that she wasn’t afraid to strike out on her own or to fight back when necessary. She sees things from a different perspective and that makes her a great addition to the team. She is definitely my favorite heroine of the series so far. 

The battle against the Rogues has a turning point in this book, but they also find a new danger that is even more deadly than Lucian’s brother. I really am enjoying this complex world of alien vampires and can’t wait to see how they deal with the new threat. 

Trigger Warnings:

  • Elise is grieving the death of her teenage son. 
  • References to the torture and rape of Teagan’s previous mate.
