THis is the third book in the series. I really enjoyed this read. I couldn't wait to find out what Mal's blood did to Chrysabelle, and though this book doesn't fully explain what it did, it shows a beginning to her changing body. The story continues, with more excitement and action then before. I can't wait to read the next book. Highly recommended.

*** This review will contain spoilers for the previous two books. I am a member of Kristen Painter's street team, but that is no way influenced my review. The thoughts listed below are my own. *** The expanding cast of characters are really growing on me. It was hard at first to really feel an attachment to Fi, Doc, Creek, & Mortalis, as well as Mal and Chrysabelle, and honestly after the previous book I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to keep up with all the differing story-lines. But Painter is a master of the craft and kept me engaged, and I even found myself feeling sympathy for Tatiana at times. I really am digging Mal. He is such a damaged hero, and is almost an anti hero, except he tries so hard to be good. I want to take all his pain from him and cure his curse. The problem is he has two that would need to be taken care of, and I really hope he finds a way to fix it. I also hope that Chrysabelle and him FINALLY grow a pair and admit, out loud, to each other how they feel. DAMMIT people, the world is about to go to hell and you still are afraid of your feelings?! Speaking of the world going to hell, it is, and fast. Nightmare creatures roaming the streets, I would be terrified to leave my house! People are finally starting to realize they are not alone. The mayor or Paradise City gets involved in this story, and it will be interesting how that all plays out moving forward. There was really only one super surprise to me, and that involved a hint that was dropped about Chrysabelle's family. I don't want to spoil anything, so that is all I will say about that. But it definitely made me go "hmm" when it was mentioned. I look forward to hearing more about that. If you are looking for a good Urban Fantasy that focuses more on the story than the love interest, then check out this series. The romance is hinted at, and I hope it plays out like I want, but that is not the main focus here.

Book 3 is fantastic! This just keeps getting more interesting. So many new othernaturals are about on halloween. Doc's life has taken a serious change and it may push Fi over the edge. Mal and his beast are also pushed to the edge in fear over Chrysabelle's choices. I cannot wait for the next book. Wow!

The story continues. I just wish there was a little more in the way of resolution when it came to Mal.

There is so much romance without being overly gross. Action pacted drama. This series is a must read! I've read it twice and will again... each book leaves you chopping at the bit for more.
