Blurb: Mikhail Borreagous loathes anything paranormal. After witnessing the vicious murders of his older brothers in an attack that left him clinging to life over twenty years ago, he vowed to hunt and kill anything not human. That is, until Nico Montague crosses his path.
Nico is a wolf shifter and no stranger to Mikhail’s killing ways. The infamous hunter is his mate, but Nico will do whatever it takes to protect him against the lamabra. When a second attack from the vampire half-breeds goes south, Nico makes a crucial decision in hopes of saving Mikhail: return to Shadow Creek…with his mate.
Mikhail wakes up in the heart of the paranormal sanctuary his boss has dreamed of breaching. Caught between his fierce attraction to Nico and his loyalty to his leader, Mikhail has to make a life-altering decision: betray the creatures that have protected him despite his reputation, or risk his life to stay with Nico?
Review: Although I love this series I did not care for the repetitive phrases of beast and beastly throughout this story. It got on my nerves to constantly read that. I know how Mikhail, a hunter, feels about the paranormal so there was no need to say so continuously. Once was enough.
Nico, was strong and understanding yet firm and unmovable on certain things. I liked the way he let Connor see for himself how creek was rather than constantly telling him. Mikhail’s past trauma broke my heart. I did understand to a point his hatred of the paranormals.
Jude, the leader of the hunters, was evil incarnate. It shocked me at what he did to those who he selected. It served to remind me just how animalistic humans can be. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
