3 stars – I liked it

Aric Chase is a daywalkers who has been assigned to Montreal to help with a mission against Opus Nostrum. What he doesn’t expect is to start to fall for his teammate, the beautiful Breedmate Kaya Laurent. 

Aric and Kaya’s story was a fast paced one with a lot of action. While I didn’t like Aric in previous books, I was surprised by how much I liked him in this one. He may be an overbearing brother but he is also a dedicated and protective warrior. Aric has lived a life of privilege and wealth but he isn’t an arrogant and entitled man, which is good because then I really wouldn’t have liked him. Aric and Kaya had completely different upbringings but they both had the drive to protect people that is necessary to be in the Order. 

Kaya was a strong and dedicated heroine who has used her upbringing to become a better person. She never let her past hold her back or trap her in a situation. I loved her determination to help people. These two are still newbies for the Order but they still do a good job at holding their own on missions, especially when it comes to dealing with unexpected problems. There was some development with the fight against Opus Nostrum in this book and it finally is starting to feel like progress is being made. 

Overall, this was a great continuation of the story and a good couple. Also I loved that we got to see some of the previous couples from the original Order reunited again. 

Trigger Warnings: Kaya’s mother was a drug addict and abusive. References to being abused by her mother’s boyfriends.
