No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there’s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it…
As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate’s connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe—especially those closest to Kate.
As Roland’s long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend the Conclave, a gathering of the leaders from the various supernatural factions in Atlanta. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered there, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she’ll find herself embroiled in a war which could destroy everything she holds dear…
Is there a single Kate Daniels book out there that isn't fantastic? I would honestly have to answer that question with a no, no there isn't. But, this by far has become a favorite out of all of them for me.
So very much happens and in fact, the main story arc of the past six books, comes to an end in this exciting, action packed seventh book.
Even though things were more intense, more dangerous and outright more kick butt, I'm having a terrible time portraying, writing in words, all that I felt while reading this. It was just so much, MORE and I know my review, isn't going to do this series, this book, justice.
Kate and Curran have been a favorite since the very beginning along with several members of the pack, and even some that aren't in the pack, that I shouldn't like at all. This story is so engaging, so fabulously written with just the right amount of humor, action, sups, romance, magic, and danger to really make it be one of those books that puts you on the edge of your seat frantically reading as quickly as you can and not wanting to miss a thing.
I loved that while this isn't the end of the series (thank goodness!), it was the end of this chapter in Kate and Curran's life. The end of the story arc in so many ways, but a big beginning too in lots of others.
I'm so very excited about where this series is headed and hoping like heck that everyone I love, will still be front and center for it all. But I trust the Andrews and I know they haven't come this far with this couple, to screw it up now. So it is with an anxious and a sad heart, that I say goodbye to many things that have to do with this series, but with an open heart, welcome all the changes I know are in store for it as well.
