By a third book in a series it is not unusual for an author to lose their momentum slightly, but not Katie Salidas whose pace in Pandora's Box is more intense than in the previous two installments of the series, as the plot takes a menacing twist.
I enjoyed the fact that the clan is forced to reach outside of themselves for help in solving the mystery, and I loved the new array of characters Katie Salidas introduces to the story, including Connor, Aiden, Brady, Zuri and Ariana.
Pandora's Box is tense, dramatic and compulsive with well-placed surprises. I am looking forward to reading Soulstone next.

This is my favorite book of the series, it was amazing!!! It continues from book 2 and follows Alyssa and her clan mates, including her BFF human friend Fallon. They discover a box on their doorstep one day and unleash a supernatural horror that can kill vampires and wants it's blood back from all its descendants. Scary right?
Unable to defend against this creature, Alyssa and her clan flee Vegas to Boston in hopes of uncovering something to help them in Lysander's old journals. What they find is a city run by another supernatural creature...werewolves.
This one was hot! It had me at the edge of my seat! Full of action and suspense and we get a nice insight of another aspect of the supernatural world. I can't wait til the next one! (by the time I post this, I have read book 4 Soulstone)
I recieved this book via Top Shelf Book Tours for an honset review.

Having adjusted to her life as one of the undead, Alyssa thinks she's learned everything she needs to know about the supernatural world. She's content with how things are going, grateful to Lysander for the fact that she can have Fallon by her side.
Everything seems fine and dandy until a mysterious box shows up on their doorstep. The box seems to be just like any other, except for the strange markings scratched across its surface. Unable to shrug off its lure, Fallon inadvertently opens it and unleashes a very volatile entity intent on regaining that which belongs to it.
The being craves the very essence that makes Alyssa and the others creatures of the night, a gift its said to have bestowed upon them so long ago. As the entity slowly begins to strengthen, the coven realizes that they're up against something they don't really understand. It's up to them to find out as much about it as possible in hopes of defeating it and sending it back to where it came from.
Embarking on a journey in search of Lysander's old journals, the group encounters other supernatural beings along the way - beings that are weary in giving them a helping hand. It also doesn't help that Santino has tagged along for the ride. Despite their differences, the group and their new friends band together in hopes of defeating the ancient evil before it destroys them in the process.
I totally enjoyed the third book in the series. Katie gave us a further look into Lysander's old life, as well as opening our eyes to the mythology surrounding the supernatural world that she's created.
I also found Santino's part in the whole affair a tad endearing. Yes, he is the enemy, but sometimes, it's better to keep the enemy close, right? Looking forward to more of Katie's work. Totally recommend the series!

Book three. Starts off with a bang and goes from there. You¿re brought up to speed quickly in book two and three so they are potentially stand alone stories. I have enjoyed all three. Alyssa has a clan, Peregrinus, but it is quickly thrown in danger. Someone has put the clan in mortal danger by a voracious poltergeist. Great continuation of the story.Was this review helpful?
