Wow! Such a thrilling and an almost heartbreaking ending, but Melissa Pearl pulls it off once again, bringing readers through another great ending to a fantastic series! Poor Caity and Eric, everything for them has just kept getting worse and worse, especially after that end in Snake Eyes. I seriously kept thinking "How is Melissa Pearl going to fix this?!" and "She needs to fix this!" and “Oh! She better not leave them like this!"
Caity is separated from Eric, when she was enlisted against her will by Agent Kaplan in an undercover operation. Things went wrong at the end of said operation and now she is sold and hidden away to be left alone in the place where sins abound and masks are worn daily for acts of violence corruption and deceit all conducted without remorse or guilt. All the while Eric is left with a deep sense of sadness, longing and guilt that he pushes away in order to put forth all his efforts into find his girl. Eric just knows that Caity is in trouble and will do anything even risking his own life if need be, to get to her and bring her back safely. However, when help is offered will Eric be wise enough to take even if it’s from a person he has grown to hate? And will Caity be able to last and use her gift wisely enough to last in a place where men care for nothing but money and power?
Overall this book was frustratingly fantastic! I mean I just knew Melissa would do right by her readers and give Caity and Eric their HEA of sorts, but I just couldn't see it while reading this book. So a reader will just have to endure the great book to see if Caity and Eric do get their HEA. Cause honestly I wasn’t sure it could happen, but I will hint at the fact that Melissa, went with a more realistic ending and not a fictitious way out. Which I applaud, since I sooo hate it when authors force a happy fake ending that's a bit unbelievable, so rest assured Caity and Eric do get an ending weather its happy or not? You’ll just have to read it to see it.
