Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job.
Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she’s still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be—now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate’s mate.
So when Atlanta’s premier Master of the Dead calls to ask for help with a vampire on the loose, Kate leaps at the chance of some paying work. Turns out this is not an isolated incident, and Kate needs to get to the bottom of it—fast, or the city and everyone dear to her might pay the ultimate price . . .

I love how Kate keeps becoming the collector of strays. Derek, Julie, Grendal, and now a horny teenage bouda... It is really kind of hilarious!
Learning more about Kate's past brought up so many questions about what else she might remember, how it will effect her future plans, and how it will help her decide what path to take. Plus, the fact that she now has more family than she originally realized does add another twist to her future plans.
I think I would love to have a cat-bunny-duck. I mean, it is the best pet idea in the world!
Poor Julie... In some ways, it feels that she is just a girl who can't get a break. Though I'm glad that she pulled through, I'm wondering what will happen when she realizes what Kate ACTUALLY did.
Poor Jennifer! First her baby sister, then her mate... Plus her fears about her unborn child. You wonder if she will make it.
My one question about this series that really has me thinking is this: All this talk about what happened to Atlanta (a huge city) after the Shift makes me wonder what happened to the little towns... Did those little town even survive the shift?
Oh, the end with the flowers and card from Hugh! You know trouble is on its way.
Overall, this is a great book. I personally think this one was one of the best ones so far. I really enjoyed it. I highly recommend it!
