Shapeshifter Dev Peltier thought he knew it all. But one night when a Dark-Hunter, who is also an official member of the Dogs of War, sashays into his bar, he realises that he might have met his match.

Samia, aka Sam, was one of the fiercest Amazon warriors in her tribe. But an act of brutal betrayal made her a Dark-Hunter and she’s been angry ever since. Live fast, fight hard and enjoy the night. That’s her credo. But as old enemies and new move into New Orleans, she realises that Dev might just be the only hope she and mankind have to save the world.

Hum….I really don’t know what to say about this book. Not really.
In one point, it was good, interesting, and gripping with tension.
On the other, it was a little predictable.

The ‘Dogs of War’ have been brought in to protect Nick (he’s not happy about it, it’s not interested in it, same out pissy teen shit—wait, he’s not a teen, though, it’s hard to tell at times). Anyway, Sam struts up to Dev and they fall head over lust with each other, that gets distracted by a demon.
Then they hook up, and all that crap. They fight. Then Sam gets taken from her bed. And kept away from Dev unless he finds something.
Qui friends from her past.

They go for the adventure—it’s a good way to say it—which is about the only original thing about the whole story. Even both there back stories. But maybe that’s because I had already figured out most of his past threw past books) still, that end half, that challenge and the characters involved made the books something better than it was heading towards.

It’s a story that needs to be there, that needs to be read, and it’s quick enough to feel like nothing as you skim through the pages, though It’s something that Kenyon is good at, and what makes her writing so worth it. Even from the set that she write in. that paragraph to paragraph.

I’m just still in the air about how I really feel, about the worth of the words between the covers. Though I think it might all come down to the fact that Dev wasn’t who I thought he’d be, and that makes anyone a little disappointed.
But don’t let me discourage you. It’s me that feels this way. You’re a totally different person and if you’ve read the series then you might not see Dev like I am, rather than what she had always made him.
