MY THOUGHTS -
Christine does it again! She puts out another (# 7 in the series) fantastic book full of paranormal action, mystery, and full of little heartfelt moments. This story keeps you on the edge of your seat hanging on every word almost all through the book. A lot of very original idea in this one and I love it!
"That’s when I saw it – the thing that had scared Evan. It was … a dog, maybe? But massive. As black as night. And with red, glowing eyes. If it weren’t for the eyes, I might have mistaken it for a werewolf. Well, that, and the fact that the moon hadn’t risen. Wolves didn’t turn when the sun went down, only when the moon rose. It wasn’t even the full moon; I would never have left Ana with Scott if it were.
The monstrous thing lunged for Jim, a thirty-something man in very good shape who couldn’t seem to outrun it. It tore at the backs of his legs, drawing blood and sending Jim sprawling to the ground on hands and knees.
I couldn’t move, and not because Evan’s power still held me. That thing was about two seconds from eating Jim, a man I happened to like and who I knew had a wife and two kids at home.
A strangled yell emerged from Jim’s throat. Guns blazed – I hadn’t even noticed Frank and Sheriff Adams drawing their weapons. The beast growled, momentarily losing interest in Jim as it fixed those demon eyes on the two men trying to fill it with lead.
Then, suddenly, it was in the air, flying backwards through the trees and out of sight.
The guns went quiet but the sheriff and his deputy continued to run toward their fallen comrade. Evan stood stock still, staring into the woods, arms raised and waiting. Listening.
Suddenly, the sound of a canine howling filled the air.
“Move!” Evan shouted. “It’s coming back!”
I have read every book in this series and I really think this is the best one! A lot of twists and a lot of fun action in this one! Great character development! I love the addition of Cassie and Evan's 1 yr. old daughter - Anastasia "Ana" with magic of her own. This little ball of fire sure adds a whole new spin on things! What fun!
It will be interesting to see where Christine will take us next. Personally I would love to see a new series about a grown-up Anastasia! Hmmm. but I am sure that what ever she decides to write- it will be great!
