bloody fights. complex love puzzle. laughter.
Why did I read this? And am I glad I did?
I loved the first in the series and barely blinked between ending it and starting this one. This was just as good, if not better, than Something Secret This Way Comes. The fighting was just as bloody. The romance was even more confusing (as if that was possible). And there seems to be to no shortage of psycho evil vampires that want Secret dead.
Again, Sierra Dean shocks me with her evil genius. As if two love interests weren’t enough to balance, let’s just throw in a couple more. Even Secret thinks this is getting ridiculous if not a little slutty. But that’s the brilliance of this book, it was NOT ridiculous or slutty (or at least not any more so than what I was fully comfortable with).
Did I guess who the bad guy was? Nope. Did I love seeing how it fell together? Absolutely. Did Sierra leave us with another ending that has us saying “what?!”? Of course.
After cheating death twice in one night, confessing her true nature to her werewolf soul mates and being asked to kill one of her closest friends, Secret took a much-needed vacation. By running away.
Now she’s back in town—dragged kicking and screaming—determined to clear Holden Chancery’s name. Right after she finds out what he’s accused of. It shouldn’t be hard—Holden has a habit of using their new and scintillating psychic bond to break into her thoughts and dreams at some very, shall we say, awkward moments.
Just a few things stand in her way: a secretive Tribunal leader, a group of would-be vampire slayers and two werewolf boyfriends who refuse to let her operate in her customary lone-wolf style. Even less amusing are the terrifying creatures that someone is using in an attempt to gain control of the council. Even for this out-of-the-ordinary bounty hunter, it’s a challenge with potentially deadly teeth.
Warning: Contains an ever-plucky heroine with no shortage of weapons, super-hot mind games, an ever-complicated love triangle and one hell of a creepy amusement park.

She had found an old Sesame Street cup, depicting The Count. His cartoonish fangs beamed at me, and I read the writing on the side which proclaimed, One… Once Glass of Milk! I wanted to stab myself in the face with the broken shards of my dignity.
- she had me laughing out loud within the first few pages
Sig’s children might have died before Jesus.
Sig’s children might have killed Jesus.
I reminded myself that Sig was Finnish, and it was pretty unlikely any of his spawn would have traveled across Europe to kill a trouble-making Jewish carpenter.
Most people when faced with death, reach the level of acceptance and eventually yield. I got as far as denial and sort of stuck there. It made killing me pretty frustrating.
