Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job.

Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she’s still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be—now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate’s mate.

So when Atlanta’s premier Master of the Dead calls to ask for help with a vampire on the loose, Kate leaps at the chance of some paying work. Turns out this is not an isolated incident, and Kate needs to get to the bottom of it—fast, or the city and everyone dear to her might pay the ultimate price . . .



So Kate and Curran are finally together as mates and we can clearly see that both are happier about it, but life is not easier for them and now things are not normal. Kate has her own firm, with the help of Curran and the Pack, but she doesn’t have any clients, after her ex-boss Ted decided to bad talk about her.

The Red Guard is back and Kate’s job is to find a kidnapped victim, sounds easy enough, but in reality this involves everything from witches to technology. I liked getting to know more about the witches, because those girls come make some really strong spells, but the best part was the drama.

The action was great and I liked getting to know more about the Pack day-to-day drama, and it was nice seeing Kate settling more in her new life. But I love the side characters. Derek is awesome and I liked Ascanio too. Curran is always trying to save someone and this time it was so nice to see Kate falling to his rules.
