The fourth and final book in the NYT Bestselling paranormal romance series. Readers 18+ only.
Half a year ago, Samita Madin shared one steamy night with a friend – what she thought would be just a fling with that firefighter her mom didn’t like. But she couldn’t stop thinking about Slater Reinhard in the weeks that followed. Especially once she realized she’d gotten pregnant from their tryst.

Samita had every intent of staying in Toronto, keeping the baby a secret from Slater. But then demons attacked North America in a massive catastrophe known as the Breaking, which let Hell pour onto Earth. Separated from her family, and injured in a collapsing building, she has no choice but to let Slater protect her – and their unborn baby – from the preternatural onslaught.

But now Slater’s one of the preternaturals. He’s been bitten by a werewolf since the last time they saw each other. He’s changing from a hero firefighter into a monster with urges that he can’t control.

A lot of those urges have to do with Samita.

He only needs one glance from Samita to vow he’ll get her and their baby through the end of the world. And Slater has every intent of claiming Samita as his mate.


This, the final book in the Tarot Witches series, has (in my mind at least) a different feel to the previous volumes.  Launched into the story with little by way of preamble, this book provides tension in abundance.  The narrative creates an edgy feel, and yet, despite all the action, it doesn’t feel overly frenetic or out of control.

And once again, although this book is explicit, it doesn’t feel sleazy.


What is a little weird about this book is that  we are getting answers to scenarios we have already read about, for example, in the War of the Alphas series.  So, this feels a little out of synch.  But essential reading to understand the post genesis world.

Overall, whilst Samita and Slater weren’t my favourite couple from the series,  this was an entertaining book, and the ending was a fitting conclusion.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
