"Just when Celia thinks the supernatural world can’t turn deadlier, a new rival emerges, proving just how dangerous a power-hungry were can be.

Since being cursed with unique abilities, Celia Wird and her three sisters have fought the most bloodthirsty preternaturals in the Lake Tahoe region. But Celia’s greatest threat is someone she would have never suspected: Anara, a werewolf Elder who has allowed his hatred for Celia to spiral out of control. In a play for dominance, Anara tortures Celia and gives her an ultimatum: sever her mate bond with pureblood were Aric — or Anara will kill everyone she loves.

From the instant they met, Celia and Aric have shared an attraction that cannot be tamed. So keeping Aric away is impossible, and Aric would sooner die than allow anyone to hurt the woman he loves. Misha, master vampire and Celia’s sworn protector, also finds his way into the chaos, seeking blood from those who have harmed her.

Now Celia and her sisters are caught in the middle of a war driven by lust, fueled by hatred, and destined to end in tragedy. For Anara is a force to be reckoned with, and he will not succumb without robbing Celia of those who hold her heart."

Four books into the series and I dying for the fifth! It's been such a long time since I've found a UF series I've been utterly addicted too. Not only is the story good, but the characters have me hooked. I need to find out what happens next. Especially with that crazy and spooky ending. 

Oh my goodness....poor Celia. Kuddos to her, because I wouldn't been able to handle all that stress and pressure. She is given an ultimatum to sever her mate bond with Aric (they are "soul mates") or Anara will kill Aric and everyone she loves. If she tells anyone, he will kill them all. Anara is an Elder were, so he has the power of the pack and can harm anyone he wants within MILES. So crazy. So of course, Celia being Celia, does this, but everyone thinks she is going nuts and insane. Ugh! It was so hard to read, because at the same time Anara keeps proving his power by beating her up and mind controlling her friends into beating her up (they don't remember this happening - of course). Such a mess, such a mess. 

I totally understand everyone thinking Celia has jumped off the deep end, but really? For all she has done for them wouldn't they expect that she is being a "bitch" and "nuts" and trying to stay away from everyone FOR A REASON!? Ugh! It was a tough read, but I was still addicted. I am excited to see what is next for our heroine and the gang in book 5, which is the last of Celia's story. I have heard that the series is going to continue onto Taran's story (yayy!). 

Poor Taran. :/ Poor Gemini. Cecy Robson better fix it! 

Okay...I will also say poor Liam. I wasn't a huge fan of him, but man....that was tough part near the end. That is all I can say without spoiling anything major. 

In the end, this was a brutal book for not only Celia (and Aric), but for the whole gang. Anara truly was an evil bastard. A great villain, mind you, but evil and I wanted to punch him myself! He had "good intentions", but he took advantage of the pack and harmed the innocent. I think he is the best bad villain of the year in my book. I do recommend anyone who loves some UF in their life try out this series (you need to read the last few books tho). Out of five stars, I stamp this one with 4 stars. It's more like 3.5, but I don't give decimals, so I rounded. 

Favorite Character(s): Celia, Gem, Taran, Koda, Emme, Misha, and Anara (just because he was a good bad guy)
Not-so Favorite Character(s): Shayna (she really made me mad in this one), Anara (he is a bastard), and Omar (Ty's Dad....I think thats his name).
