Touch-sensitive FBI agent Lily Yu and her werewolf bond-mate are recruited by the Secret Service to help identify elected officials who have accepted demonic pacts. But Lily must turn to fellow agent Cynna Weaver for help when Cynna's former teacher, a demon master, emerges as the main suspect behind the pacts.
After a demon commits a gruesome murder, sorcerer Cullen Seabourne joins the team racing the clock to find the apprentice of evil who uses demons to kill. Cynna and Cullen must work together—a challenge indeed when each has good reason to ignore the desire simmering between them. But passion and events both spiral out of control as an ancient prophecy is fulfilled-and the lupi's greatest enemy sets her sights on total devastation...
Once again the Lupi are being attacked, with the source tracing back to an influence from the evil goddess with the unspeakable name. Demons are being used to target the heirs, a surefire way to destroy the Lupi quickly. To make matters worse, the goddess's current puppet seems to be Cynna's former teacher, Jiri. It will take the whole gang to defeat both the demons and their controller, even with all of them it may not be enough.
In this book we find out a bit more about Lily's mysterious Grandmother, Li Lei. I was glad to have a better picture of who/what she is, even if there still are many unanswered questions. The book also focuses more on Cynna and Cullen. To think I once found Lily and Rule's relationship to be frustrating, those two clashing was nothing compare to Cynna and Cullen. They could go from insanely mad at each other to tearing the others clothes off in less than two seconds. The two definitely have a major love hate relationship going. Somehow, though it works, and I feel the attraction between the two. I think their relationship will work well with them constantly clashing with the other because neither of them could be happy with something docile. Future books will only tell if they can work as a couple or not.
Things have gotten complicated in the Lupi world. Some nasty events occur that make the animosity between the Nokolai and the Leidof even higher. Because of these events, Rule is now stuck between the two clans with no way out in sight. I really never saw that coming, and should make for interesting events in future books, but only time will tell. Luckily, for now it does seem to be the calm before the storm. The characters have enough to handle with the demons that keep targeting Lupi heirs.
This book has a lot of things going on, and once it started, it just didn't stop. I enjoyed the addition of focus on Cynna and Cullen. Sometimes it is nice to have a new perspective in a series. I really love the cover as well. The tattoos are gorgeous! This series is definitely getting better as it goes on, and I cannot wait to read the next book.
