Kate went out with a bang! I am kind of sad we aren’t going to get to read about how this new world is going to be. At least we have some Hugh books to look forward to. I am hoping that maybe Conlan will make a debut in them because I feel like his story was not wrapped up for me.
So the meat of this book, Kate has to find a way to keep her dad at bay, and some new big bad evil showed up. And obviously only Kate can bring together all the people needed to bring him down. I have so many questions, like how Yu can exist in the world. Or how could Curran start to become a god, but then he can use all the power up in one go.
Hugh was an absolute delight, however I wish I had known to read his book before this one. Ayyyyy. Well its not like it really ruined anything for me, I really wanted Hugh to redeem himself, and he definitely did. Twice for me!
So yes, Kate brings everyone together, all her allies, and TRIUMPHS! See what I did there. I give the book 4.5 out of 5. I was just a little disappointed at how convenient it was to deal with her dad and the big bad in this book at the same time.

About the book:
Mercenary Kate Daniels must risk all to protect everything she holds dear in this epic, can’t-miss entry in the thrilling #1 New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series.
Kate has come a long way from her origins as a loner taking care of paranormal problems in post-Shift Atlanta. She’s made friends and enemies. She’s found love and started a family with Curran Lennart, the former Beast Lord. But her magic is too strong for the power players of the world to let her be.
Kate and her father, Roland, currently have an uneasy truce, but when he starts testing her defenses again, she knows that sooner or later, a confrontation is inevitable. The Witch Oracle has begun seeing visions of blood, fire, and human bones. And when a mysterious box is delivered to Kate’s doorstep, a threat of war from the ancient enemy who nearly destroyed her family, she knows their time is up.
Kate Daniels sees no other choice but to combine forces with the unlikeliest of allies. She knows betrayal is inevitable. She knows she may not survive the coming battle. But she has to try.
For her child.
For the world.
