Publisher's Summary

Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job. She may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she's still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be - now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate's mate.
So when Atlanta's premier Master of the Dead calls to ask for help with a vampire on the loose, Kate leaps at the chance of some paying work. Turns out this is not an isolated incident, and Kate needs to get to the bottom of it - fast, or the city and everyone dear to her might pay the ultimate price.

Another wonderful additon

This book is another solid addition to the series. Kate finds out more about her mother's side of the family and some painful truth. At the same time the relationship with Curran is becoming more solid. I was surprised and delighted by the choice Curran made to Kate. One of the most romantic gestures I've ever read! You know then that he truly loves Kate no matter what over anything and anybody.

This series and the Dresden series are the only series I buy both the printed and the audiobook version as soon as they come out. They are that good ! I like to listen to the books first because that way I don't miss a word. I tend to read really fast and I usually don't savor every word the first time around. BUT I just couldn't wait this time and I've already read the printed version...So please if possible, could you release the audiobook version at the same time as the book?

And when IS the next book coming out??

Better and better

This series just keeps getting better. The fear is once the main couple get together an author often falls on contrived angst to keep the tension. Not so here. Kate and Curran never fail to entertain. It helps greatly that the plots beyond any romantic interest in the books have always been very strong. This series appeals to anyone wanting an action plot, a plot dealing with dysfunctional families and how to keep the romance in a real relationship after the commitment is made. The secondary characters are all amazing also.
