Morgan Montgomery is waiting to die. Branded a traitor by her tribe, the Ikati shape-shifter has no hope for mercy - until Jenna, the Ikati’s newly crowned queen and Morgan’s former ally, offers one last chance for redemption. Morgan must infiltrate the Rome headquarters of the Expurgari, the Ikati’s ancient enemy, to destroy them once and for all. The beautiful renegade has just a fortnight to complete her mission or forfeit her life. But she does not travel alone.…
Xander Luna is a trained assassin and the Ikati’s most feared enforcer, famed for his swift brutality and stony heart. Fiercely loyal, he is prepared to hate the traitor under his watch - until they come face-to-face. For Morgan Montgomery arouses something unexpected inside of him - something that threatens everything he believes in and the fate of the tribe itself: a love as powerful and passionate as it is forbidden.

I really enjoyed this book and could have read it a lot faster if I hadn't just started a new job at the same time I received it! This was Morgan's book with her love interest being the Ikati Assassin Xander. It was great getting into her head and seeing how much she genuinely regretted what she did and maybe even craved home a little after trying to escape it for so long. There were also a couple of pretty big twists regarding the Expurgari that I won't reveal but that did take me by surprise at the end!
Xander was easy to like as well, he really had a rough childhood, much rougher then Morgan but he was a good person despite his own poor opinion of himself. I loved these two together as in a lot of ways they can understand each other better then just about anyone else.
I loved meeting the new colony as well and seeing how different they were from the colonies we know. I can see a future story involving Eliana and Demetrius being developed with how the book ended. I'd love to see those two end up together and I think that her fathers research may be important to the Ikati race and be life-changing for them so I'd like to see how it plays out and whether their colony will now make contact with the other colonies, reach out to them and form an alliance of sorts. I'd quite like that, they could come out of the tunnels and live above ground like the other colonies. I also want to see when Jenna (from the first book) is gonna start changing laws to improve the existence of female Ikati and to allow greater freedom in the tribe. I do hope that Morgan returns to the tribe eventually. I think she will miss them and that once she's travelled she may yearn to return home. Espeacially after what she learned. Can't wait for the next book!
