I’ve said it before, but sometimes I’m a bad person. I cheated on my twelfth grade math final, I’ve run countless yellow lights, and I gossip about how hot my kickass best friends are. (Good thing my job as a guild bartender doesn’t require moral perfection.)

But there’s bad, and then there’s bad. And I’m not sure which applies to a certain dark druid/wanted criminal/reluctant friend of mine. His transgressions include black-magic dealings, kidnapping, and murder, and he’s about to add “revenge-fueled killing spree” to his resume—if I don’t stop him.

Should I stop him?

He and his nemesis are gearing up to tear each other apart, rogues and vultures are converging with their sights on the spoils, and the guilds that would normally stomp them into the ground are under attack. We’re on the brink of an all-out criminal turf war, and my time to decide is almost up.

Who’s the real bad guy … and do I dare stand in his way?


Problems always follow Tori, this time she will have to save Zak from the MPD in Los Angeles, she will ask Kai for help and consequently will drag him into a series of problems from his past.

On top of all these problems, new ones will of course happen, the guild will be in danger, Zak’s identity will be discovered and tragic events will occur.

I liked this tome, the fact that Tori doesn’t hesitate for a moment to go and save Zak is an exceptional proof of friendship. I already knew that their relationship was important, but now it’s even more so. I still have to admit that my little heart was broken.

We finally discover more about Kai, I can’t really tell you that it’s a good thing but at least Kai knows how to defend himself.

The relationship between Tori and Ezra intensifies even more, I find them both so cute but I know that everything is not simple.

This book was intense, a lot has happened and you feel like you’re nearing the end of the story, the answers are coming slowly but they’re there.

Quick word: Another great book.


Les problèmes suivent toujours Tori, cette fois ci elle va devoir sauver Zak des mains du MPD à Los Angeles, elle va demander de l’aide à Kai et par conséquent va entrainer ce dernier dans une suite de problème venant de son passé.

En plus de tous ces problèmes, de nouveaux vont bien sûrs arriver, la guilde va être en danger, l’identité de Zak va être découverte et des évènements tragiques vont se produire.

J’ai aimé ce tome, le fait que Tori n’hésite pas un seul instant pour aller sauver Zak est une preuve d’amitié exceptionnelle. Je savais déjà que leur relation était importante mais là c’est encore plus présent. Je vous avoue quand même que mon petit cœur s’est brisé.

On découvre enfin plus de choses sur Kai, je ne peux pas vraiment vous dire que c’est une bonne chose mais au moins Kai sait se défendre.

La relation entre Tori et Ezra s’intensifie encore plus, je les trouve tellement mignons tous les deux mais je sais que tout n’est pas simple.

Ce livre était intense, il s’est passé énormément de choses et on sent qu’on approche de la fin de l’histoire, les réponses arrivent lentement mais elles sont là.

En bref : Encore un tome superbe.

About the author

Annette Marie is the author of YA urban fantasy series Steel & Stone, its prequel trilogy Spell Weaver, romantic fantasy Red Winter, and sassy UF series The Guild Codex.

Her first love is fantasy, while fast-paced adventures and tantalizing forbidden romances are her guilty pleasures. She proudly admits she has a thing for dragons, and her editor has inquired as to whether she intends to include them in every single book.

Annette lives in the frozen winter wasteland of Alberta, Canada (okay, it’s not quite that bad). She shares her life with her husband and their furry minion of darkness—sorry, cat—Caesar. When not writing, she can be found elbow-deep in one art project or another while blissfully ignoring all adult responsibilities.
