From the Back Cover
Juliet Carpenter thought of the coven as family, but when she falls for a man who betrays them all, she's left alone and desperately searching for a reason why. Caleb Leigh has spent the past year in hiding, unable to escape his demons. When Juliet finds him again, her need for vengeance clashes with the hunger still burning between them.
It's a fight born from the embers of a half-forgotten attraction and the wounds of a past too raw to ignore. With enemies circling and secrets threatening to consume them all, Caleb has no choice but to fulfill a promise made long ago--protect her, save her. Even if it costs him his blood, his body... and what's left of his mind.

Caleb is one of those hero's that you hate. After some page time with him you love him. You're happily in love with Caleb when you figure out that you love to hate him and of course you figure out that you hate to love him. He is a mess. He has done many unsavory things. He has done everything for the most noble of reasons. Considering what he did to Delia I thought he would not be redeemable. While I can't say he ever really redeems himself, I now have a better understanding of him.
Juliet is totally the little girl lost. So much of her life is a big unknown. The people she has surrounded herself with are gone in the blink of an eye. The sister who gave her shelter from infancy is missing. The coven that she immersed herself within has been savagely attacked and nearly destroyed. All of these events have sent her into a downward spiral that has left her alone with the exception of the bottle she tries to find comfort in.
Juliet and Caleb are thrown together when she decides revenge is the answer to her woes. She knows that Caleb is behind the vicious attack on her coven. Turning him over to the new coven mistress will be her way back into the fold.Read more ›
The world Karina Cooper has created in this series is amazing. It's so realistic. She just has a way of describing things that make you feel as if you are right there with the characters. Her world and the characters that are apart of it were great. I found myself continuously turning the pages to see what was going to happen next. I wanted to know more about them and their story.
Though I enjoyed this book but I did have some issues with it. This book is not a stand alone book and going into this book I did not know that. I haven't read the previous books in this series so I found myself a little overwhelmed and confused at times. There are a lot of things happening in this book that are direct consequences from things that took place in the previous books. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down, I just wish I knew ahead of time that this book wasn't a stand alone.
I really liked Caleb. He's in your face and sort of a badass. He doesn't make apologies for his behavior, you either take it or leave it. Even with all the hardness comes off of him, I found that with Juliet he was tender. He cares about her and takes care of her even though he promised to stay away from her. I found myself completely intrigued by Caleb. I really enjoyed his character and I found that I enjoyed reading his p.o.v so much more than Juliet's.
With Juliet, I found that I enjoyed her much more in the beginning of the book. Don't get me wrong, I still liked her, but she just came across a lot more soft towards the end. I think everything began to take it's toll on her and she just seemed so helpless towards the end.Read more ›
Karina Cooper does a great job of creating the ambiguity of right vs. wrong when it comes to Caleb. Caleb believes that his actions were justified. What he did was for the greater good. Would he do it again? Probably. Does he have some regrets? Probably not. This is why as a hero, Caleb is a difficult character to relate to and root for. While reading Caleb's story, I wondered if he was deserving of a HEA. He has caused so much pain it seems only fair that Caleb suffers as well.
Juliet is a character who I loved and disliked. She is weak; she has been protected all her life. And the one time she tries to be strong and avenge her sister's death, she can't follow through. At first, I didn't see her as a great match with Caleb but as the story and their relationship progressed, I realized she is a great compliment to Caleb's character. Caleb needs to protect and Juliet needs to be protected. She had her TSTL moments that drove me crazy but it was consistent with Juliet's character. Her attempts at being useful and strong happened during the most inopportune times. It frustrated me but I saw that it was her way of taking control and feeling like she is making a difference.Read more ›
