Can't wait to see what Nina and crew get up to from here and what challenges await them!
Thanks to NetGalley and Karen Greco for the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed. This exact review posted on both Amazon and Goodreads.
It’s important that you read the first two books before this one as it kicks off with a spoiler if you haven’t, as it gives us more background to Nina’s story, with her history with the now disbanded Blood Ops, and the death of Aunt Babe by burning at the stake as a witch. In this book, we pick up just after the second book, where the entire state of Rhode Island has been put under Marshall law to try and control the supernatural race that is running rampant there, and all the supernatural want is to go back to living in peace and harmony under the radar again. Only problem is Nina’s mother who has unexpectedly risen from the dead, Leila is pushing the charge for supernatural to be put into super max prison nicknamed Steele City, or killed and having the feds under her control this is making it difficult for everyone.
While dealing with all this she has some other unexpected family arrive and they are about as welcome as her mother. But they may be more helpful in the end. Nina doesn’t care she just wants a normal life and a date that doesn’t end in disaster. FBI Agent Max Deveroux is still about but comes with his own problems after being turned into a Berserker by the local demon boss. So, he’s not in a place to date, and then there’s Frankie who has been around for a while, he was her partner in Blood Ops and always been her friend, only thing is he comes with several life times and nearly 700 years of baggage, including one life time that meant him wearing Gold Lame shorts and roller skates. (something I possibly would pay to see). Will Nina ever get a date? Or will the government drop bombs on Providence before she can? Will she every be free of family drama? And will she get her happily ever after. Only time will tell, and you need to read the book to see.
Karen Greco has out done herself with this book. It’s a very well written and developed book. Well done on a five-star read.
So - we are exactly where we left everything last time. Dr. O is in prison. Nina's mom is still evil and on the loose. Max is still a broody berserker. And Nina and Frankie still have some seriously unresolved sexual tension. To top all of this off, Nina's mysterious and powerful grandfather turns up on her doorstep with ideas of training her as a witch. Everything sort of meanders its way to a few final battles here. I was worried about halfway through about things getting wrapped up in a decent way, but have no fear!
We get Nina's mother issues worked through, even though that looked a little touch and go for a while. The way we go about getting that resolution was a little less than optimal, but, hey, that's Blood Ops for you. Dr. O and the prison storyline also gets tidied up nicely. We meet some new characters in the form of border crossing werewolves. We also, sadly, get some bureaucratic nonsense from a new lead for Blood Ops. Who knew things could get more crappy than having your leader arrested? All of this bundles together in a messy and gritty look at Nina's insane life. I really hope she follows through on that vacation.
