“Rowe is a paranormal star!” ~J.R. Ward, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series
A fatal mistake stripped Zach Roderick of the powers that define him, leaving him a tormented shadow of the warrior he once was. Now, his teammate's life depends on Zach resurrecting the fire that once burned within him. As he undertakes a battle he has no way to win, he is derailed by a tempestuous beauty that awakens in him the dark desires that destroyed him once before.
The scars etched on Rhiannon Diaz's soul are so deep that she will never again be free. The once-powerful guardian is facing her last and greatest battle, and failure means a return to a sexual enslavement that is far worse than death. Her intense and passionate need for the powerful warrior who has vowed to protect her threatens the very foundation of her survival, but his refusal to abandon her drags them both into a world where wild, untamed passion rages, and surrender is their only chance.

I know that patience is important but I cannot wait for this book to finally release in three days. I know it'll be another addictive page turner but hopefully we could get a midnight release, eh?
Sorry to say but this is my least favorite of the series. Good story but it lacked spice and therefore it came up short. Maybe it is because she introduced the couple that will be part of her new vampire series which I didn't mind but there wasn't enough of Zach. Also, I really would have liked to see the Order at some point. It was good that Thano survived and we got to see his humor, but I missed the rest of the Order. Not sure I like the new direction of this series. Having been as long as it was since I read the previous book, I was a little lost, not enough tie ins with previous characters to refresh my memory of the series.
