Synopsis from Goodreads:

Jazz needs to get away. With her shapeshifter status outed to anyone with an internet connection, she’s being hounded by reporters, protesters, and fanboys alike. With her birthday fast approaching, all she wants is a steamy weekend with Logan, away from… well, everything.

But something’s killing people in her territory. The local pack and the police are looking to her for answers—or an arrest. As alpha and enforcer, Jazz needs to shoulder the responsibility of protecting her community and finding the real monsters. If she can’t, she risks losing respect in a pack where her leadership is already in question.

As the investigation progresses, it becomes evident that old enemies have returned. They’re out for revenge, more powerful than before, and targeting those who’re most important to Jazz. The patterns are too familiar. The targets are too close to her heart. Jazz can’t be everywhere at once—can’t protect everyone at once.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My review:

I love how all of the separate elements of this multifaceted story meld together into one incredible life. This novel is also a melding of supernaturals. Not only does Walker incorporate multiple types, but some are a little of this, a little of that. It’s the UN of supernaturals. Walker takes all of this and has her readers on a fast paced journey from beginning to end. You can visualise the fight scenes in real-time. I felt like I was standing there watching rather than reading it in a novel. Walker had me tied in knots trying to guess what would come next, but she also had me in tears with this one. Emotions run high in the novel, and Walker easily translates that to her readers.

I am completely hooked on the cast of this novel. Jazz’s animal side really shines through in this one. It’s priceless. She’s really becoming who she’s meant to be. The evolution of this character throughout the series really allows the reader to connect with her. I also love Loki in this one. I love how he goes from being a house cat to a full character in his own right. The rest of the cast is also there, in full form. Those that we’ve met before continue to grow based on their experiences, while the new characters are fully developed and a great addition to the story.

This series is crafted in such a way as to create an incomparable experience for the reader. Walker is definitely an author to watch.
