Avid reader/reviewer and editor. I don't pull punches when I review, love it or hate it, you get what I think.
Picking up where the first book left off, Cate and Jason don't get much time to enjoy their newly married status between a killer on the loose and trying to free an entire race of enslaved people. And if that isn't enough to deal with, they have enemies coming out of the woodwork and council members determined to see them fail. The characters have great depth and the dialogue is witty and sometimes even a bit snarky (I love snark!) Cate's brothers, Ian and Steve, are two of my favorites in this series with their commentary and sibling banter. The story is packed full of suspense, action, intrigue, some romance, and even a bit of funny thrown in to lighten things up. The story is lengthy, so set some time aside because its extremely hard to put down. There is no lag time in this one with its battles and surprises at every turn. Several questions are answered and some problems are resolved in this one, but it does end with a cliffhanger - and it's a whopper. This series just gets better as it goes and I can't wait to see what's next for these characters.
