Simple Description:
This book starts exactly where the last one left off.  Mercy has agreed to be Adam's mate, however before they can really discuss it and be comfortable with it, Stefan shows up in Mercy's living room (as does her Mom).  Stefan has been tortured and is close to dying, well, as close to dying as a vampire can be.  Adam allows Stefan to feed on him because he doesn't want there to be a blood tie between Mercy and Stefan.

Soon Mercy realizes that the head of the local vampire seethe, Marsilia, knows the truth about what happened in the last book and is out to get Mercy and her friends.  To make matters worse, things happen that cause some issues with Adam's pack and Mercy but I'm not going to give details because I don't want to give anything away.

Mercy leaves town for a bit to try and take care of a ghost that is haunting an old college friend's house.  It's there that she has a run in with another vampire, one far worse than she has ever met, and some nasty ghosts.

It seems that Mercy can't stay out of trouble, even when she wants to.

Now what you really want to thoughts:
This series has become one of my comfort reads.  I go to the books when I just need something that I don't have to concentrate on really hard and know that I'll like it.  I just adore Mercy.  She is such a wonderful character.  She doesn't always make the right decisions, but she does what she feels is best regardless of what those around her might think.  She's a strong female character and I like that.  This book did not disappoint, it's another great installment to the series.

There's always a bunch going on in these books, I mean what can you expect when you have werewolves, vampires, and the fae all in one book?

If you like urban fantasy and you haven't check out this series yet, I urge you to do so.

On a rating scale, I give it 4.5/5  (I have a hard time giving something a full 5/5).

This book is part of my collection and was either bought or given to me.
