The Quick and Dirty: Joshua is undercover with the Council while Nix and the rest of her men train for the war against the Council. The group loses someone very close to them and a massive truth bomb is dropped on Nix that could change everything.
I loved reconnecting with Nix and the guys and seeing how their relationship had grown. And um, that scene together? 🔥🔥🔥🔥 I also really enjoyed that we got to delve into some of the ancillary characters like Ciaran, Rini and Molly. My one critique was that the part at which they decide to share with each other felt long and like a therapy session; almost like a means by which to tell the reader these long held secrets without having to show it organically. Otherwise, it was a fun read and I can’t wait to see how the finale turns out especially after that final bomb was dropped at the end! 😱
Death. War. Pain. Hope.
I’d thought running from the Council would keep my family safe. Instead, it has exposed new dangers—undercurrents I never knew existed.
With Joshua left behind enemy lines and threats emerging from all sides, I have to do all I can to protect my mates and bring my newfound family together again.
As Damien, Theo, Ryder, Hiro, Killian, and I work to find our place among the rebellion and face the Council, I can’t escape the feeling that something else is coming for us in the dark, Alaskan winter.
Secrets and conflicting beliefs may just crumble what we’ve worked so hard to build, but I won’t lose a war that hasn’t even started yet. Especially not before I’ve been able to claim the six men that were always meant to be mine.
But fate is a fickle beast, serving up more than any one person should have to handle.
In the end, will we be broken by the new lives we are trying to create, or will we be Changed by Fire?
