Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.

Lawson and his brothers escaped from the underworld and now lead desperate, dangerous lives, pursued by the Hounds of Hell from one town to the next, never calling any place home. But when the hounds finally catch up with them and capture the girl Lawson loves, the hunters become the hunted. Lawson will stop at nothing to track down the hounds—especially their ruthless former general—even if the chances of saving Tala are slim. The risks of being recaptured and enslaved by Romulus are high, and the boys’ search becomes increasingly perilous as they get closer to the hounds’ trail. But an unexpected discovery leads them to the one person who may be the key to winning the inevitable confrontation to come.

Meanwhile, Bliss Llewellyn is adjusting to humanity after giving up her immortal vampire life. As she and her aunt Jane unravel the clues surrounding a disturbing attack on a young girl, they find themselves stalked by a terrifying force, so stealthy that Bliss doesn’t know who to blame until Jane is taken by the hellhounds themselves. Bliss will do whatever it takes to save her—even if it means joining forces with the insolent, dangerously good-looking boy with a wolf’s soul and a too-intimate knowledge of Jane’s captors.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
