Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she’s still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be—now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate’s mate.

So when Atlanta’s premier Master of the Dead calls to ask for help with a vampire on the loose, Kate leaps at the chance of some paying work. Turns out this is not an isolated incident, and Kate needs to get to the bottom of it—fast, or the city and everyone dear to her might pay the ultimate price . . .

Been meaning to get back into the series. It's been a minute!

Kate Daniels quit the Order of Merciful Aid and has started her own business. The business has been slow now that the Order is disparaging her good name and many clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of her mate, Curran. Her big chance pops up when Atlanta's premier Master of the Dead hires to ask to rope in a vampire on the loose. However, it turns out this is not an isolated incident and Kate needs to get to the bottom of it before the city and everyone she loves pays the ultimate price. 

I was absolutely glued to this one! Dang, my wedding getting in the way ;) but I didn't want to stop listening. 

I really had zero ideas how everything was going to be saved and solved... including Kate's ward, Julie. I was certainly on the edge of my seat!

We also get a lot of answers about Kate and her parents. We learned A LOT and so much makes sense. I feel so bad for her....I just want her to find peace and happiness with Curran. 

SPEAKING of which, I am still warming up to Curran. I feel like their relationship is finally maturing and they are trusting each other more. WHICH makes me happy. I was not a huge fan of the Curran/Kate love at first. I'm beginning to adore him too. He is still super, duper jealous and super Alpha...but he has relaxed...a tiny bit. 

The ending was SO good. I literally clapped my hands together! Yes, things are okay for now, but there will be more things for Kate to kill in the future. I do worry for them all. 

The narrator was great. Love her voices for all of our characters. Some of the shifter voices make me chuckle still, but they fit fine. 

Issues? Mmmmm. I don't think I had any for this one. I'll give this 5 stars. 

Now, I will have to at least read book 4 before starting this one. There are a lot of references to what happened in the previous book. 

This is a series that keeps getting better! I struggled with book 1, but after that, I really like this series.
