Guardian Riley Jenson always seems to face the worst villains. And this time's no different. For it's no ordinary sorceress who can raise the dead to do her killing. But that's exactly what Riley expects to find at the end of a trail of female corpses used - and discarded - in a bizarre ritual of evil. With pressure mounting to catch the fiend, the last thing Riley needs is the heat of the upcoming full moon bringing her werewolf hormones to a boil - or the reappearance of a sexy bounty hunter, the rogue wolf Kye Murphy. Riley has threatened Murphy with arrest if he doesn't back off the investigation, but it's Riley who feels handcuffed by Kye's lupine charm. Torn between her vamp and wolf natures, between her love for Quinn and her attraction to Kye, Riley knows she's courting danger and indulging the deadliest desires. For her hunt through the supernatural underworld will bring her face-to-face with what lurks in a darkness where even monsters fear to tread.… (more)

There's a *lot* of non-con going on in this series. It's somewhat made up for - at least for me, where non-con gets my hackles up - by having a pretty darn decent world build. ( )

Listened to audio narrated well by Angela Dawe. Riley is with her vampire lover Quinn now and trying to be as monogamous as she can be. While hunting a someone killing young people and vampires she is repeatedly confronted with a wolf that fires up her senses. While Riley tries to figure out if she's dealing with more than one murderer, Kye keeps insinuating himself in her investigation and getomg Riley very riled up...

HUGE SPOILER ***


I definitely have mixed feelings about this story. I love the characters, the action and the continuation of everyone's story but the twist and turn Riley takes does not make me happy. I know this series takes sexual boundaries and pushes hard against them. This series basis has a lot to do with sexuality being more open and accepting a lot of flexibility in defining sexual relationships. In saying all of that, I truly thought the author was leading us to Riley recognizing Quinn was her mate.

AND THEN she finds a mate she doesn't even like? That they aren't compatible at all except sexually? It's so many kinds of wrong, if the only point of mating is finding the one you can have kids with, but it could be someone your aren't compatible with, why are all the shifters so moon-eyed about finding their mate? I just don't get it, it seems so pointless and we're given no hint of this ugly scenario in previous books. I really hope future books makes this situation better, because I love the Riley Jensen world and the characters but this twist is a bit too ugly for me.

Riley is so bent out of shape to find her wolf mate, so she can have her babies drives me a bit crazy. Quinn is so good for her and to her and she feels so good with him, I'm like what the heck? Why can't you be happy with what you've got but NOOOO!!! She fucks this guy she does not like because they suspect they are each other's mate. And BAM, she found her mate that she can't stand? I hate that the author allows a mating like this, and that even though she doesn't want him, they both will be drawn to each other and pine for each other? This is an ugly turn in my opinion that I absolutely HATE! Grrrr!!! The fact that Quinn didn't lose his every loving mind makes me love Quinn even more.

Non saprei, il rapporto fra Riley e Quinn è sempre più "strana". Sono carini assieme ma non hanno carisma, o lo stanno perdendo. Non saprei.

Diverso è, invece, fra Riley è la sua fantomatica - e tanto attesa - anima gemella. Credo proprio che la serie riacquisterà smalto da qui in avanti, non vedo l'ora di leggere il futuro "tira e molla" fra i due! ( )

Riley is taking on a new menace and doing it well. She's also having to deal with a wolf that excites her wolf, Kye. We suspect along the way but its not until the end that we get confirmed that Kye is her wolf's mate. Normally a source of rejoice but neither one of them is too thrilled to have it confirmed. Riley is still with Quinn and she thinks he's her vampire's soul mate. How we go further we won't know until the fall. ( )

Quin is back and wonderful with Riley. Dark forces keep her in contact with a were that could ruin her relationship with him. Great action and romance, love Kye. ( )
