I had been frustrated by the primal tension in the previous book of this series, feeling frustrated and wishing for more. This book answered that concern in ways I could not even imagine and am still reeling from after finishing this book! My mind is blown. It blew my socks off! 2 alphas!!! One a gargoyle and one a polar bear. Both needing one another in the most intimate connection...the bond getting stronger with each battle!
Mythological creatures join us this time and Austin must face the family he left behind. Ivy House is awaiting an answer for the blood oath. And on top of everything else, Jesse's son, Jimmy, is due for a visit! After hosting her parents earlier and knowing Ivy House likes to play tricks, Jessie knows a new approach will be necessary for Jimmy's stay. There are other challenges as well, like needing more training from a more powerful Madge and answering the challenge invitation that had been issued. They would all have to work together as a team if Ivy House was going to stand. She would need more from Austin than she had been willing to ask for before. Would he be willing to answer he call?
This book is wonderful. Now...I am going to read it all over again so I can savor the best parts and pick up on anything I might have missed while devouring this book the first time through!
