Atlanta is a city plagued by magical problems. Kate Daniels will fight to solve them—no matter the cost...
Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta.
Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and the Pack’s future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they’re heading straight into a trap...
The smart latest installment of Andrews's semi-post-apocalyptic urban fantasy series (after Gunmetal Magic) takes mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, the werelion Curran, to the Carpathian Mountains. In exchange for bodyguarding a pregnant shapeshifter during a critical time of negotiation between three powerful packs, they'll receive ample amounts of the panacea drug, essential for ensuring the future of their own people. But the mountains are full of strange beasts and deadly mythological creatures, and one of Kate's greatest enemies is hosting the convocation, heralding a confrontation she's not ready for. Nonstop action and intrigue fill the halls of the secluded castle as schemes come to fruition. Vividly imagined fight scenes, clever use of obscure mythology, a uniquely interesting setting, and rich characterization make this a rare treat, only hampered by the complexity of the pre-existing knowledge required to fully appreciate the developments and conflicts.

Great continuation. Not set in Atlanta for the most part and without some of the story lines started in book 5 (trusting we’ll come back to those later), it evolves Kate’s story in a truly entertaining way. Loved the stuff the Hugh and all that battles with him. Curran and Kate’s relationship is tested once again. It’s frustrating, but at the same time only serves to bring them closer in the end.
Overall a great addition.

Kate is about to encounter Hugh on a trip to another country. Kate , Curran, Derek and several more will go with Saiman on a trip overseas to get some panacea to help the young shifters from going loopy and to save Julie’s friend. With all the action and plots twists you will find the book excellent reading!
