Summary:
Trouble is Elena Manory’s middle name and constant companion. Her adopted brother Lucas is missing and her body is going through further bizarre and surprising changes.
Killing has become second nature and distancing herself from the men in her life as a hobby.
But more trouble is on its way: The institute of Magical Intervention wants to harvest Elena’s blood for nefarious intent; the werewolves plan to dominate, feed and breed with her; and, to add insult to injury, a psychopathic vampire hell bent on revenge is relentlessly hunting her. Kidnapped and kept under constant duress, Elena’s salvation once again rests in the cold hands of the enigmatic William Granville. Blood is on the menu and her earlier fears of turning hairy at full moon are well founded. It’s time for Elena to sharpen her claws and kick some serious ass.

My Review:

This is still awesome series, but.... my God, can we please get to the freaking climax already? i need to know what is really going on and this continuous build- up with no release is starting to slowly kill me!

I love the writing though. The author does a phenomenal job capturing the exact tenor of emotions and the complexities of each individual character. Its just that I need... more?? Trust me, I'm just as confused as you are right now.

I just want to the story to keep moving forward and while yes, we definitely get some questions answered in this installment, I just feel like we are at a stand-still. In my personal experience, this is what normally happens in a trilogy and I call it the "the 2nd book filler syndrome". This is where I am at with this series.

Although, I am most definitely excited for the next installment, I just need it to be more than this one was.
