Blurb: Tambra Ellis has just had her world turned upside down. Surviving a bite from a Lycan, attracted to one hot vampire and now she has to look forward to turning into something from some bad werewolf movie.

Marcus Valerian has enough on his plate without the added complication of Tambra Ellis. Fiery and independent? Sure. Beautiful with a body made for sin? Oh Yeah. She’s also a human cop. Tambra is everything he needs to stay away from.

As leader of the Tribunal’s enforcers it’s up to him to find out why the Dark Breeds are going feral and killing humans in ever increasing numbers. Tambra’s life is in the balance as the secrets of her past place her in the middle of a battle that will change the world forever.

Will Marcus and Tambra’s love survive or will it be too late?

Review: One thing this book is not lacking in is speed. This has to be one of the quickest books I have ever read. Shannon covers so much in such a little amount of time I wanted to go back and read it again. Well that and it was a great read. While I will not give away any details or spoilers, I will say I really really hope that there is a sequel. It seemed like she alluded to a sequel. The range of characters in this novel from the Cajun human best friend to the different Dark Breeds species was a brilliant balance of familiar and new. Good job, Shannan. Can’t wait to read more.
