Overview

All’s fair in blood and war. . . .

Talk about wedding crashers from hell. Keira Kelly and her sexy vampire king, Adam, are about to tie the proverbial knot—sort of—when an uninvited blood relative shows up to cast a long, dark shadow over the happy occasion. Adam’s brother Gideon comes bearing the one-size-fits-all gift of bad news: an ancient, convoluted Challenge thrown down upon the entire Kelly clan. It seems the dreaded forces of the Dark Fae have declared war on Keira’s family, and at stake is the land that is rightfully theirs. But while the Kellys gather their troops in a historic San Antonio hotel to strategize, there’s mayhem back in Rio Seco. The old cemetery is vandalized, fires break out, and—worst of all—the Kelly clan matriarch and leader, Keira’s great-great-grandmother Minerva, goes missing. Should Keira risk breaking the Challenge rules by returning to her beloved home, or should she continue the waiting game that seems the only other option? With everything she loves and maybe even her life on the line, she has only one chance to get the answer right.

Keira the Kelly Clan chief and Adam the vampire king heir to the Unseelie Court throne are hosting a blood-bonding ceremony with a hall filled with supporters. However her uninvited mother Branwen Ferch Arianrhod and her former lover Gideon who is Adam's half-brother break up the gala. Also with them is Gideon's pregnant wife Aoife heir to the Seelie Court throne. Mommy dearest hands a parchment to her daughter an ancient archaic Challenge. The Dark Fae claim Kelly Clan land and have the backing of Gideon's mother-in-law Seelie Queen Angharad; Adam's father Unseelie High King Drystan and Keira's great-great grandma Minerva support the couple. While gathering the forces in San Antonio to counter Gideon and his deadly allies, hell has broken loose in Keira's home Rio Seco and Minerva has vanished. Keira believes odious slick Gideon is trying to crack her into breaking the blood rules of the Challenge. The latest Bloodlines feud (see Matters of the Blood and Blood Bargain) takes several dark nasty twists in an enjoyable urban fantasy. Filled with action from the start, series readers will appreciate the spins as ritual Challenge makes for a terrific twisting taut thriller. Harriet Klausner

I was a big fan of this series early only but it seems to have gone in the wrong direction. I'm not sure what went wrong, but I think I'm done. I might be interested in a book focusing on Niko and Tucker.
