For as long as Lucas Coate can remember, werewolves have been taught to mistrust vampires. Lucas is an exception—he has close friends who are vampires. The werewolf pack in Flint—and their leader, Jacob Coate—have made it clear that Lucas’s association with vampires is barely tolerated, and another transgression will be his last. When Lucas finds out about the plague of werewolf deaths in the area, he wants to help even though his own life may already be in danger.

Declan has been away from Flint for ten years, but he isn’t surprised to learn that the internal politics of the Supernatural Council haven’t changed for the better. When a series of burglaries hit close to home soon after he arrives, Declan—a vampire and professional thief—is their prime suspect, although for once, he isn’t responsible. With the council keeping secrets, no one is safe. Time is running out, and for Lucas and Declan, everything is about to change.



Lucas I love character so much!  He was strong with what he had to go through with his family and the way they treated I’m.  But he was also funny, some of the comments he said had me laughing.  He was also caring when it came to his friends and protective.
Then there was Dorian who was going through losing a lover that became a good friend and being accused of a crime he did not do.  He fought his feelings for Lucas at first but once he let go… Let me say the sex scenes between these two are hot!!! You could really feel the connection between them.
There is more mystery in this book with all the friends trying to figure out who was stealing and trying to hurt the werewolves.  This book had me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out who did it.
All together I really loved this book!
I would definitely recommend this book and this series!

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with two cats who are convinced that the house is run to suit them; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date it appears as though the cats may be winning.

In 2008 she completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra.

She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth.
