When the Alpha Council comes to her with a special job, it’s a no-brainer to turn it down, no matter how much money they’re offering. Shifters who can sniff out her weird magic are the last supernaturals she needs to be around. Worse? They have a history of hunting FireSouls. But when Cass learns that a little girl’s life is at stake and Cass is her last hope, she doesn’t have a choice.
With her sisters and Aidan Merrick at her back, she’s got a chance at saving the girl and keeping her deadly secret—until she learns there’s far more to this kidnapping than meets the eye. It’s far too similar to what happened to her as a child, and everything new that she learns scares her even more.
It's a world were magic folk live in plain sight but the humans have no idea who they are sometimes dealing with. In the last book we met Cass and her two sisters. They are reviled FireSouls, capable of absorbing powers at the point of death and in this story we learn just what happens when a FireSoul is discovered.
Hey, it’s not all doom and gloom though as Cass is slowly coming around to the idea that she can trust Aidan the ultimate shifter. He's just too yummy for words. Brave, caring, considerate, and like catnip for Cass! He is starting to understand the Monster that haunts the past of Cass and her deirfiur and happily will do all he can to protect Cass. What really sets him apart is his belief that Cass should use her own magic and I really like that he wants her to progress.
I will say as little as possible about the story as it’s a thrill ride from start to finish. These girls might live in Oregon but it's a blast as they travel from Mayan temples to castles in Scotland and then there's all the glory of a magical ruin in Turkey! Expect the unexpected and enjoy the ride because it's thundering along and dragging this reader with it!
If I had just one criticism it would be the use of the word deirfiur as it just kept cropping up repeatedly but that's a minor thing. I loved this story and can't wait to learn what happens next. There's a tiny part of me wondering if it somehow connects to Aidan and his powers in some way, but whatever is in store I'm really looking forward to it.
I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
