After the werewolves were thrust into the spotlight, after their coming out, it forced the Marrok to tighten his rule on them. This means more executions and Charles is being sent out more and more. Anna tries to show the Marrok that it’s taking a toll on him. When he finally gives in, the Marrok sends Anna and Charles to help the FBI solve a serial killer case. While helping the FBI, Anna tries to get Charles to open up to about what is bothering him so much. This might be their biggest obstacle yet.
This is an excellent continuation of the book series. This book has expanded Charles as a character and makes him feel more rounded. I’m not saying that he wasn’t a good character before, but he seems more human. Anna has grown since the last book and that is probably because 1 year has passed since then. I love the introduction of the new Boston-based werewolves and the expansion of the world. It’s a strong book and interesting plot to continue the world’s narrative.
