Synopsis: Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta.

Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and the Pack’s future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they’re heading straight into a trap…

Outside the windows the day was bright: golden sunshine, blue sky, pleasant wind … I wanted to punch the happy day in the face, grab it by the hair, and beat it until it told me what the hell it was so happy about.

What I like about this book:

  • Kate begins to doubt herself and all she believes, but she stays true to the things she believes in and this is ultimately her greatest strength.
  • Kate realizes in this book how alone she is among all the shapeshifters and then that she’s not alone at all…she’s Pack.
  • Each book moves the overall arc along, but is also completely satisfying and complete.

What I don’t like:

  • I can’t think of anything!

    This is the second or third review you’ve done of this series (that I’ve read) and I think you’ve convinced me. I shall go put the first book on my TBR list.
