And I thought the first one was fantastic? This sequel blew the first one out of the water. It delivered both action and romance that left me reeling from the impact. Ms. Robson knows how to write a follow-up transition book in a series. I laughed, I cried, I bit my nails, and I did it all over again while being in awe of the paranormal world that the author created. The ending that left things wide open is still consuming me.

In this follow-up (which must be read in order by the by), Celia and her sisters are enjoying their time with their wolves between work assignments even as they recognize that life is still pretty complicated. Taran is having nightmares about demons coming for her and Aric is under high pressure from the Elders to stick to his own kind. He tells Celia that she is everything to him and they’ll always be together, but she can’t bring herself to believe it.

Then people start disappearing and dying. Demons pop up. Rogue vampires and weres are seen about as they wreck mayhem. The wolves have a new deadly assignment that they don’t want the Wird Sisters to help with. The Were Elders and their people definitely don’t want the girls involved. But Celia has no plans to sit it out on the sidelines where Aric’s safety is concerned. Along with her sisters, her friends and Misha with his crowd, they all join to help fight the new evil that has emerged.

In the end, fighting evil proves deadly and it’s still not enough for the Elders to change their stance about Aric and Celia. With her heartbreaking, Celia makes a hard decision.

The plot, pace, character development, romance and just the whole package were amazing. Other than the torture my poor heart endured along with Aric and Celia, I had no disappointment in this book. The humor, the sisterly camaraderie, the awesome friends, and oh boy yes, the passion between Aric and Celia was just something else. Celia has her limitations and her flaws, but she is also loving, loyal, strong and passionate. She’s a perfect heroine. I love her as a narrator and seeing the others and all the action through her eyes. I felt everything she felt and this story ran the gamut. I can’t wait to grab up the next book in the series.

Those who enjoy spicy Urban Fantasy need to try this series.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

It’s the ‘I tripped over a really good series and I have to shout it to the rooftops’ feeling. I love UF, but struggle to find series that really grab me.

I hear ya 🙂 I’ve had a few like that over the years. I used to read UF ALL the time but then slowly made it into the just romance category which is my main staple now. I’ve been feeling the urge to dig into UF again though.
