Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great end to the trilogy! Exciting end to a great trilogy! Admittedly I wanted to strangle Aren at some points, but I loved the intense action scenes which I wasn't expecting. Great book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't speak highly enough of this series! Every once in a while, you read a book that pulls you in, emotionally drains you and leaves you with a book hangover when it is finished. This is one of those books-series. I can’t speak highly enough of this series. I cannot think of any negatives except that I wish it didn’t end. I don’t give many five star reviews, but this one is most deserving of it! Highly recommended for anyone who loves an action-packed, superbly-written urban fantasy with sizzling romance and a kick-ass heroine. Sandy Williams is an amazing, talented writer and I patiently await her new series release
