Actions have consequences—a lesson Scarlett Bernard is learning the hard way. As a “null,” Scarlett has always been able to negate the powers of the supernatural beings that surround her. But now her reckless decision to permanently change Eli from a werewolf to a human has left the Los Angeles werewolf pack in shambles, and upset the balance of power among the city’s supernatural factions. To make matters worse, Scarlett’s employers discover that a newly changed werewolf is running amok in the city. To catch the rogue werewolf, Scarlett will need help from both Eli and Detective Jesse Cruz of the LAPD…a situation that will force her to finally choose between them.

However, Scarlett and her friends aren’t the only ones on the hunt—someone else is chasing the wolf. Someone with no reservations about collateral damage. Now Scarlett and her allies must stop both the rogue wolf and the deadly hunter before the full moon rises and all hell breaks loose.

Filled with the same suspense and wit readers loved in Dead Spots and Trail of Dead, this may be Scarlett Bernard’s most harrowing adventure yet…

This was the best book in the series so far! There was so much humour in the story that I found myself actually laughing out loud several times.

There was lots of series development, and several plotline closures in this book. It had a very satisfying feel to it. Scarlett did a lot of growing up in the book, and seems to be coming into her power and potential some. Of course, she makes a lot of amusing missteps along the way though.

On the character side, I found myself actually liking most of them, although Scarlett’s roommate Molly was not as impressive this time around. I’m actually rather annoyed at her. The new paranormal beast introduced partway through the book is pretty incredible though. It’s innovative and unique and made a good fit into the series.

There was so much happening in this book, especially the later half, that it’s hard to actually talk about anything without spoilers. This was a great addition to the series though, and one that I really enjoyed. I really want to see what Scarlett does next because there were some great setups near the end that should have huge impacts on future events.

I listened to the audiobook, and as always, enjoyed the narration. The voice, tone and accents heighten my enjoyment of the book, which makes choosing the audible option really easy for this series.
