Still clinging rabidly to power, the Elites spin lies of prejudice and hatred, stoking the flames of war.
The sole driving force toward peace, Mira, had sacrificed everything. But her strength alone was not enough.
It will take the strength of many to finish what she started. As the world lurches toward war, each party has much to lose. Human. Vampire. Otherkin. The only outcomes are peace… or death.
This is hard as I've no wish to ruin things for my fellow readers. Okay, I can say that it's much more of an ensemble piece as those who have fought alongside Mira must make some tough choices. The Elites still wish to oppress the Vampires and have stepped up their insidious war with unnatural weapons that defy belief.
The rebels consist of Otherkin, vampires and even a smattering of humans but without Mira can they come together and be strong enough to fight for peace? Stryker isn't giving up on finding his mate, Mira, but what he discovers is no longer the woman who loved him. Justine feels responsible for goading Mira and now everything they have strived for is in tatters. Yet Lucian gets to shine in this book and it doesn't matter he's just a human because his insight and belief in their cause means he will rise up to the challenge. It’s not going to be easy though as the vampires will never trust a human.
So, my final thoughts are this series has been simply unmissable and don't think that because the books are on average about two hundred pages long that a lot of heart doesn't go into them. Action, romance, and even horrific events thrum through these books. This particular one is no different and there's a rawness to this world Ms Salidas has created that just resonates. Yes, its traumatic to read at times, and yes, it's heartbreaking how truly evil humanity can be, but whilst there's life there's hope and somethings really are worth fighting for.
Read this series in order and get blown away as one woman's sacrifice leads the way for others to find peace and even love.
I received an advance reader copy for a voluntary and fair review and these are my honest thoughts.
