Description: Evalle Kincaid will fight to the death for her supernatural friends. But when Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love’s tough-as-nails heroine reveals her darkest secret, who among those she had trusted will be left standing?

With the freedom of an entire race hanging in the balance, Evalle has two days to make good on a promise that she suddenly has no hope of fulfilling when demonic Svart Trolls invade Atlanta. She takes a leap of faith, seeking help from the one man who recently put Evalle in his crosshairs—Black Ops specialist Isak Nyght. While trying to stop the bloody troll-led gang wars, Evalle unwittingly exposes a secret that endangers all she holds dear and complicates her already tumultuous love life with the mysterious Skinwalker, Storm. But when Evalle discovers she’s the number one target in the Medb coven’s ruthless plan to destroy all Beladors, the deadly Alterant is forced to make a game-changing decision with no time left on the clock.

Evalle Kincaid is one badass woman, and also a Belador warrior. The Beladors are a line of warriors of Celtic descent who answer to the goddess Macha. But things aren't easy for Evalle, who isn't full blood Belador; she's an Alterant, half blood Belador mixed with an unknown species. The result is glowing green eyes and the ability to shift into a monster. Evalle is the only free Alterant and is working for VIPER.

The third installment in the series picks up about three weeks after the second book left off. Evalle had failed in bringing in the escape Alterants and was placed in the Tribunal prison, only being freed by making a deal with Macha. Macha is filling to stand behind a petition to make the Alterants a recognized race. But Evalle first has to bring forth other Alternants to pledge their loyality to Macha and discover the origins of their species. Tristan knows the origin, but Evalle hasn't been able to find him and his sister and her time is quickly running out. And of course Evalle has her VIPER duties to attend to. Their has been a lot of troll activity in gang wars outbreaking all over town. Not to mention she hasn't heard from Storm in three weeks and not even sure if he is still alive. Not to mention the seed of doubt that Kizira had planted in her mind about one of her best friends, Quinn.

I had forgotten how much I love this series. The book was very action pact. I just simply couldn't put the book down. I absolutely love Evalle and Storm. And add Isak into the mix, I couldn't help but laugh through the scenes. I just wish we would of gotten more of Evalle, Quinn, and Tzader scenes. I love how the men see her as a little sister. Their friendship is one of the many reasons why I love this series so much. I just wish Quinn would confess to Evalle. Speaking of Quinn, I'm torn between how I feel about him and Kizira. Some points I just wish they could be together. But they are at opposite ends of a war. Most of the time I just wish Quinn could move on from her. And then we have Tzader who is in love with their warrior queen, Brina. A last wish before Tzader's father's death made him immortal preventing him from entering the castle where Brina resides. And Brina being the last in the bloodline cannot leave the castle. From her deal with Macha she must make Tzader think she's moved on but still want her. She begins her plan in the book. I really hope her plan doesn't backfire on her.

With one word this book was amazing! This series is one of my favorites. And it makes me sad that it seems like the series isn't as well known. I encourage everyone to read this.
