I was a huge fan of the first book in this series, Kiss of Steel, and so when I saw this one was available, I knew I had to snatch it up. While I still find myself a bit more fascinated with the Blue Bloods and the mythology of vampirism in this series than I do the Verwulfen, I can’t deny that Will and Lena absolutely shine in this story.
With an enormous amount of chemistry and sexual tension, not to mention the forbidden aspect of their romance, they made an amazing pair, and when you throw in the intrigues of court and the new worries of a treaty between the Blue Bloods and the Verwulfen clans from other countries, I was simply glued to the pages.
A very solid 4.5/5 Stars
