Secret McQueen thought she’d seen it all, but that was before she, Desmond and Holden came home to find New York City burning and the streets overwhelmed with the walking dead. Now, in a race against time, she must find out who is responsible for unleashing hell on Earth.
For that, she’s going to need a whole new team of vampire wardens to help round up the perpetrators, who turn out to be a gang that makes Sons of Anarchy look like toddlers on tricycles.
Her quest across the city brings old friends and enemies out of the woodwork and reminds Secret once and for all why mercy and forgiveness are not always prudent. Lives will be lost, sacrifices will be made, and when the dust settles, nothing will ever be the same again.
With no time to mourn her losses, the only question remaining is if Secret can survive long enough to stop the apocalypse…or if this is the one challenge that will finally drown her in rivers of undead blood.
Warning: The final book in the Secret McQueen series has it all: hot kisses, unexpected guests, and enough tear-jerking moments to require a whole box of tissues. You’ve been warned.
Unfortunately, there are those who seek her destruction but with a sword in one hand and her gun in the other, Secret will take on whoever she needs to be they vampire or werewolf! New York is being invaded by walking corpses and fires continue to rage as a new threat has arrived in the city. Secret is born to protect and gathers those she trusts to help her find the vile necromancers that are raising the dead. Tracking down a biker gang leads her to discover it's going to take a lot more fire power but getting the werewolves to stand alongside her and the vampires is going to prove tricky. Old allies and enemies come together but readers will need tissues for this one as not everyone will survive unscathed.
Sierra Dean never fails to impress with her writing and I know there will be a lot of readers sad to see this series end. I'm so glad the heroine's love life finally got some clarity as it never sat well with me but isn't it great to see both Desmond and Holden both on the cover with her? It would be remiss not to mention her mate, Lucas, who might be king but he sure does seem to have been pushed into a back seat at times. There is more interaction with the vampires in this book than with the werewolves but there's a lovely twist the author exploits and in this series there are other paranormals at work, so be prepared to gasp at the conclusion.
So it's been a long journey filled with twists and turns that constantly surprised me. Urban fantasy is such a difficult genre to get right but Ms Dean has indeed perfected her craft and I can't wait to see what she dreams up next. Arc gifted by NetGalley for an honest review.
Recommended!! but start at the beginning!!
