Publication date: 28th December 2018
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Adult
Nick Tanaka has been missing for months.
After that mess on the Thai island of Koh Mangaan, Miri and Black search for Nick all over Europe, following every lead, every rumor or trail they can run down.
Those footsteps are rapidly fading, though.
Miri has to face facts.
Nick is probably dead.
Whether the vampires killed him, or he died in that fire on Koh Mangaan, she might never know.
She and Black return to the United States, back to San Francisco, back to the reality of her Uncle Charles and the civil war he’s brought to American soil.
Charles wants nothing more than to wipe out the vampire race, and he’s willing to enslave or kill every human on the planet to do it.
As his newly-founded “Purity Movement” starts riots in several states, the unrest moves closer to Black and Miri, even as Charles continues to pressure them to join the war on his side.
The vampires are worried about Charles, too––so worried, their king contacts Black, wanting an alliance.
In return, he promises Black and Miri news on Nick.
He also promises an offer they can’t refuse.

OK. If you have any pre-conceived ideas about this book, I would strongly suggest that you ignore/discard them. This book was so completely unexpected – in a really really good way.
As she did with the Bridge & Sword series, the author is steadily ramping up the tension and the threat level. The ground never really feels secure under your feet with this one. And for good reason. Familiar faces; new threats; old threats. And growth in Black and Miri’s relationship.
Even though that ending left me a little gob smacked, and the book as a whole left me scrambling for coherent thoughts, I loved each and every word.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
I’m a USA Today bestselling author of sexy, apocalyptic and cyberpunk-y paranormal mystery, alternate history, urban fantasy & supernatural suspense, often with a metaphysical bent.
While it might seem like I have a (perhaps overly?) friendly relationship with my dark side, if you read my stuff, you’ll discover pretty quick that, at base and in my heart, I’m a big, sappy, pie in the sky idealist, and that I always want the light to win, love to win, the good guys to win, compassion to win, the bad guys to be redeemed or at least to find love…even if they have to crawl through mud and blood and crazy sex and betrayal and broken fingernails to get there.
Of course, not all of them make it…but I always hope that they will.
Other stuff: I have a background in journalism and political history, and a Master’s degree in the latter. I love to travel and to interact with different cultures and histories and I’ve traveled a fair bit (although never enough – there are always new places to see!). I’ve also lived a lot of different places, including all over the United States where I was born, as well as stints in Europe, Australia and now Asia, including a few years in India and now a few in Thailand.
Currently, I live and work full-time as a writer in Bangkok, Thailand, where I have a beautiful view of a Buddhist wat right out the window while I write.
