Overall I really enjoyed this book. Keri Arthur has an amazing talent for building tension and creating amazing pacing in her writing. There are so many tense moments and dramatic points that I really appreciate and love and I honestly don't know how she packs so much action into books. I think the only thing missing in this book and the previous few was the overarching plot from the first three books. I really enjoyed (and hated) those cliff hangers. But I get that it's now her love life that is the cliff hanger. And as much as I miss Kellen, he never felt right.
I do however have some spoiler type thoughts which are plot related. As much as I love the character of Quinn, I think he's a dangerous path and I hate how manipulative he was in the past. I can't trust him and I don't like him, even if he wants to change. I definitely do not ship Riley and Quinn, even if he is sexy and amazing. I am also confused by her missing left pinky, I thought (and now I'm thinking it's wishful thinking) that it was regrowing as a stump or a deformed form when she changed back from her wolf shape after killing the god? No? I'm confused. It wasn't mentioned at all in the last book and it was brought up many times now. Currently theories In my head include Riley having two would mates, that could be fun! One wolf one vamp? Although I also hate that theory because of my aforementioned dislike of Quinn. I do think there is a spark I am DESPERATE for Riley to pursue with Cole... Maybe a tiny bit of foreshadowing by Ben on that one?
Overall another enjoyable action packed book, even if I don't like the current love interest.
