Taran Wird, the loudmouth mistress of flame and lightning, didn’t want to attend the formal gathering of the supernatural elite. She did so only to help to unite the supreme beings in attendance in one common goal: protecting Taran’s sister, Celia.

Celia is pregnant with alpha werewolf Aric Connor’s child, the same child prophesized to save the world from uprising evil. Evil wants this child dead before he is born and, more importantly, before he can grow strong enough to stop it.

Taran and her werewolf lover, Gemini, put plans in place to protect Celia. Master Vampire Misha Aleksandr and his clan also swear their allegiance to Celia and vow to keep her from harm. The witches even cast protection spells around the manor to curse anyone with malintent who enters. Nothing was supposed to go wrong, except everything did.

Creatures that shouldn’t exist stalk the grounds and invade the premises, and every curse meant to shield the guests turns against them. No one counted on the powerful being who arrived uninvited. But he’s here, manipulating the magic enclosing the estate to work in his favor.

As body counts rise and allies become enemies, chances are Celia won’t survive the night. But evil never counted on how hard Taran Wird would fight, even at the expense of her life.

I love Taran! I am sad this is the last book in her series. I am excited to see the next sister get her spotlight!

This takes place right after the last one. Taran is attending the formal gathering of the supernatural elite to unite to protect Celia and her unborn child. This unborn child is prophesized to save the world from uprising evil. So, of course, that evil wants the baby and Celia dead. Taran and her were-lover, Gemini, put plans to protect Celia. However....things quickly change and everyone is in danger.  

This certainly did not waste any time getting to the meaty action. We pretty much jumped right into the drama and survival of our characters. Which....I wish we had more downtime before the crap hit the fan. It's been a hot minute since the last book came out so I wanted a refresher of story and characters. You will want to have read the book previously before starting this one. 

Other then that small issue, I was hooked. I had NO idea who was going to live or die. This was action-packed and emotion-packed. I was on the edge of my seat.

Love Tara. Love Gemini. I wish we had more time with them. I want to see them grow. They still have some issues, but what relationship is perfect???

That ending made me tear up...but in a good way. So good! I NEED MORE! I want to read more darnit!

That cover is so pretty and awesome. <3

Overall, this series is still so addicting for me. I love our characters. I wish we had more downtime with Taran and Gemini...but the action was juicy and addictive. And what a good ending. I can't wait for the next one. I'll give this 4 stars.

I never read any of her books, but they always look so interesting. Glad you enjoyed it up until the end, and who knows, maybe there will be more?
