As one evil falls, another rises in its place. The powerful witch, Desdemona, has finally been killed by an alliance of wolf, elf, and fae. But Reyaz, brother to Cypher the warlock king, has vowed retribution for a life that was taken from him. Now Cypher must decide not only how to protect his newfound mate and his people, but also how to destroy the only family he has left.
Meanwhile, Jen’s pregnancy progresses and the fateful due date draws ever nearer. The thought of losing Decebel’s child constantly threatens to overwhelm her. With each passing day, Decebel grows more distant, causing Jen to wonder what toll the impending loss of their child is taking on him. Unbeknownst to Jen, in an act of desperation to protect his unborn child and mate, Decebel strikes a deadly bargain with the Great Luna—his life in place of his child’s. There is only one way for that to happen; the bond between he and Jen must be broken.
As Jen as Decebel struggle through their darkness, another kind of darkness is infiltrating Fane’s heart. Doubts and questions linger as he tries to cope with the emotions brought on in the aftermath of Desdemona’s curse. He knows what happened wasn’t real, but still he can’t rid himself of the terrible images seared into his memory. Jacque is his light, the one who keeps the darkness at bay, yet he won’t let her inside to do just that.
Sally continues to learn what it means to be a gypsy healer and Costin struggles to protect her as she runs full speed ahead to help her wolves, heedless of her own safety. She sees her best friends struggling, each enduring their own trials. She’s desperate to help them, but can she keep them safe?
With all of these things hanging heavy over the heads of the Serbia and Romania packs, their attention is divided. The wolves do not even realize a threat has slowly infiltrated their midst. Will they recognize the threat in time to save the lives that precariously hang in the balance? Against this backdrop of darkness, choices will be made, fears will confronted, and the ultimate sacrifice will be made. Will the wolves stand together to defeat the threats arrayed against them, both from within and without? Will love conquer all? Or will the beleaguered wolves finally succumb to their demons?

Never laughed and cried so much reading a book!!
I'm a 34 year old woman and was unsure about this series of books as I thought maybe they'd be a little too 'teenager'ish for me. I was wrong to be unsure as they seem to cater from everyone 14+.
I absolutely loved them! I adored the banter between the characters and it had me laughing out loud dozens of times. I also had tears streaming down face from the struggles they had to endure.
I highly recommend this set of books.
I recommend this series to anyone. This is a great book, well worth the money.
The only reason that this isn't 5 stars is because of the sacrifices. The book would've been more memorable if the people who sacrificed themselves stayed dead. It would shock and sadden the readers, and feel as though they'd been through a lifetime, and make them closer with the surviving characters.
Another thing is the Great Luna. Every time I read about her, I kept thinking 'This isn't the character, this is the author'. You love your characters, and while this is a good thing, your cliched 'I'm dead but I'm not' sort of ruined it for me.
However, I love Peri/Lucian. Peri seemed to respect Vasile, and I totally would've put them together if it hadn't been for Alina. Insert long lost brother and you've got a great pairing.
All in all, good job!
Best book ever
This is the best book ever, because I am usually bored of a series after the first book, but this one I just want more.
