The last few days have been the darkest of Sally’s life. After experiencing the joy of finding her mate, she now suffers the pain of losing everything she holds dear. Both the Romanian and Serbian packs have been captured, ripping Sally’s soul mate away from her almost as soon as she had found him. Her best friend and the emotional glue that usually holds Sally together, Jacque Pierce, lies writhing in a restless coma, having been put down by Desdemona’s dark magic. Jennifer Adams, the unshakable one, has revealed to her friends and her mate that she is pregnant, but the Fates have marked her unborn baby for death. Though she rails against the darkness, deep inside Jen knows that Decebel’s baby must die as payment for her own life, and the knowledge is tearing her soul to pieces. Cypher, King of the Warlocks, has claimed Jacque’s mother as his mate and agreed to help Desdemona open a door that would release a horde of demons from beyond the Veil.
Though her world is crashing down around her, Sally holds out hope. The Great Luna is not sitting idly by. She has commanded the Fey council to call upon the packs—all of them. And though Cypher looks for a way to open the Veil for Desdemona, he struggles to protect Lilly and the wolves at the same time. Peri, the ever-courageous High Fae, and a contingent of the remaining females of the Romanian and Serbian packs, push on through the rough Carpathian Mountains. Though they are bound to the human realm, they continue to search for a way to cross over to the land of the Fey. Meanwhile, in reluctant obedience to the Great Luna, the Fey council sends representatives to the far corners of the globe, meeting with the pack Alphas. The Fey must convince the Alphas of every pack to lay aside their petty territorial squabbles and battles of dominance. If they refuse, both the humans and the supernatural races will fall at Mona’s feet.
Sally holds to a shred of hope. Though Vasile, Decebel, and their pack mates endure the torture of the In-Between, living their worst nightmares over and over, Sally holds. Though she knows that it is only a matter of time before their wolves take over, she holds. Sally knows that if the males die, then so too will their mates who have performed the Blood Rites, including her best friends Jen and Jacque. Yet she holds. If the males lose themselves to their wolves and turn feral, so too do their mates. Still she holds. Though Vasile, the strongest Alpha in their history to unite the wolves, is lost beyond the Veil, Sally holds. Though Decebel, the only other wolf besides Vaile strong enough to unite the packs, suffers beyond the Veil, Sally will hold. No one is left to unite their race, and defeat Desdemona. Yet Sally still holds. She holds out hope that the Great Luna will not abandon them, cannot abandon them. Throughout the centuries, the Great Luna has always provided a gypsy healer to the packs, especially in times of great need. Now Sally is that healer. Sally fears what role she has to play in the defeat of Desdemona, but she will play it. Though heaven and hell unite against her, she WILL play it.
For too long the supernatural races have lived in separation, warring amoungst themselves, allowing trivial power plays and selfish disputes to keep them from uniting. That separation has made them weak. Now, being summoned as a collective force to the same land, will they come? Will they come in numbers greater than have been seen in centuries? Will they destroy each other and save Mona the trouble, or will they finally unite and fight as one?
Can’t put it down
Please someone make this book series into a movie series
Must read and read again!!
Best werewolf series ever!!! I’m so glad I found this <3
I’ll always find my way back to rereading this wonderful group of characters!!
Dang! I’ve always wanted a hot furry werewolf , yet these three meet one and by the end of the year are all mated😭 How is this possible? Anyway... I loved the romance and drama a lot , and all your books seem to come to life as I read them!😊Quinn your books are just as inspiring as the first time I saw one , and I’m bound to be obsessed with them for life. I really can’t put into words how much they mean to me but I can try to ,by giving you a mere run over of what they mean to me and every other one of your fans personally.A year ago I was obsessed with werewolf legends and such, but on the first page I thought, ‘Quinn is amazing at writing and I hope to get all these books.’ As the series progressed I was amazed at her writing and started quoting her and Sallie, Jen , Decibel, Fane, Jacque, etc. , because I’m being bullied at school and don’t have many friends to help me through thick and thin like your characters do, so when I read these books I felt what it was like to have support like that I. I realized that I needed to do something about these bad test scores and bullies , because they were leading me down a dark, empty path that promised pain and failure. So I started getting more of your books and setting studying goals to help me get ahead. My prize for this was reading two or three pages of your books. Fast forward and the F’s are replaced by all A’s and now I hardly hear a mean word out of the bullies mouthes , if I do hear them then I ignore them ( which annoys the heck out of them) , and study harder knowing that if I hadn’t done something to help , by getting my teachers and parents involved... that could’ve been me. So again I thank you Quinn ,because I don’t think you know just how much you mean to us fans in the least. YOU are the one who is there. YOU help us through tough times (among others). And I’m thanking you for it on behalf of all your fans. Feel free to share this because everyone should know just how much you mean to us fans who have had something happen to them , and *poof* you help them along by providing laughs and good memories to replace the bitterness in their lives. THAT’S what you mean to us all big, small, round , or thin. You are a good person and writer Quinn and I hope everyone gets a chance to see that first hand 😭😭😭😊😊 - KG
Ps. Your jokes ( Jen’s too!😂) have helped me through a lot and I hope I showed you just how much you , your books, and your characters mean to me because of that!😭😊
