It’s been a hell of a year for Secret McQueen, and the last thing in the world she wants is to get caught up in werewolf drama. But when her former fiancé Lucas Rain shows up asking for her help, she knows there’s no easy way out. After making it known she wants nothing to do with him, Secret agrees to help find Lucas’s wayward sister Kellen. After all, how much trouble could one socialite get into in the city that never sleeps? Unless that socialite has been spirited away by fairies. Trying to track down a missing girl in an alternate reality is just the start of Secret’s problems, though. Someone appears to be killing teenagers, and the MO looks eerily similar to something for which the half-fairy oracle, Calliope, might be responsible. Throw in a rogue wolf pack claiming allegiance to Secret’s mother, Mercy, and she’ll have miles to go before she rests. Warning: This book contains a promise fulfilled, sex that’s out of this world, and more heartache than one hybrid assassin can handle.
This was such a pivotal book in this series. And while I don't want to give anything away, I know that I'm probably going to. So this is your warning.
I have a few different points that were such a turning point for Secret and this entire series. I was all in with this book, once I started reading I literally could not stop. I'm glad it was my day off when I decided to read this one.
Lucas, Lucas, Lucas. Secret is so done with his shit and I am so happy. The entire time I was reading this book I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. I know Secret has a penchant for forgiving and letting people back in who don't deserve it. But this time she held steady and Lucas got everything he's been deserving.
I'm not a huge fan of the triangle between Desmond and Holden but right now I'm living with it. Secret gets both of them right now and I'm cool with that. I'm just dreading the time when she has to pick. I really like Desmond but I like Holden more. So it's going to be a hard one for me if she ever does have to pick. And if she wanted to get a bit of Sig up in there I wouldn't hate that either.
When Secret lost her "weapons" I about died. All I knew is that it couldn't be permanent and it had to be fixed asap. Luckily it did get fixed but I think what she had to do in order to get everything fixed is really going to come back to bite her in the ass.
