"Celia’s a girl in trouble.  Her heart is bound to Aric, but he is a pureblood were who must deny her or risk condemning his species to extinction.  And that’s just her love life. She’s also been called to take down a group of demon terrorists looking to overthrow the paranormal world. (No pressure.)

In order to bring them down, Celia must ally herself to Misha, the master vampire who has made no secret of his desire for her. And if that weren't enough misfortune for one girl, a clairvoyant’s prediction could destroy Celia and Aric’s love for good. The only way to protect the world from unbridled supernatural terrorism is for Celia to bind herself to her destined mate. And that doesn’t appear to be Aric…"

Oh my goodness. I couldn't read this fast enough. Normally series such as these die down after the second book, but the series keeps getting better and better and better. The ending had me DYING for the next book. I need to know what is going to happen next; especially with the last sentence. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! How is Celia going to get her HEA? How is the Pack and Aric going to respond with this news? Misha is going to flip! UGH! SO much drama ahead for our gang.

There is the a-typical love triangle happening, but it is way different. Celia only wants Aric. She wants to just be friends with Misha, who is the blonde twin of Jean Claude from the Anita Blake series (he seriously annoys me. I am starting to like him a little more, but still...he doesn't get the fact Celia WANTS TO BE YOUR FRIEND - NOT LOVER!). Now there is a hint of a love square happening. The Pack Elders want Aric to marry and have babies with a fellow Pureblood, so they are trying to force Celia to be a werelion, Ty. Poor Celia...all she wants with Aric, but the damn Pack and Anara are in her way. Stupid Anara...I hope Celia can kill him. That would make my day. Aric made me mad at the beginning. He is to marry another, but keeps coming around Celia to "make sure she is ok". He doesn't get that it is making it worse for her AND for him. Sighs. I do like him later on...he does redeem himself a wee bit.

There was so much going on. So much action, hurt emotions, and tears. I want everyone to be happy. However....Emme made me happy. I can't say what she did, but it made me happy, because I hate Liam. 0_0 Emme deserves better...she really does. 

I can't say much else without fear of letting out too many spoilers. I am dying to see what happens in the next book. Cecy Robson needs to fix everything! I know it won't happen in the next book - due to the summary - but it needs to happen soon. I feel so bad for Celia and Aric. :( Stupid asshole Pack Leaders. >__> 

In the end, this was a good read. Not as good as the second book, but the series is keeping everything fresh and still keeping me interested. I love all the characters (even the ones I loath, like Liam) in some way shape or form. They truly make the series. I recommend that lovers of the paranormal genre give this a go. Out of five stars, I stamp this one with 4 stars. 

Favorite Character(s): Celia, Taran, Gemini (*drools*), Koda (*drools even more*), Ty (I kinda hope he gets with Emme), Emme (she toughens up a lot in this book), and Hank (hahaha, don't know why, but I actually wish he had more spotlight). 
Not-So Favorite Character(s): Misha (he is gaining some points in my book, though), Aric (same as Misha...gaining some points), Anara (I hope he gets stabbed by a spoon...), and Martin (you are the Alpha of the Pack...act LIKE IT!)
