Goodreads Synopsis:

Life has been crazy since Tessa McCaide moved to Texas. She’s gone from being a normal-ish girl with visions to a super-powered werewolf. She’s fought off vampires and broken a nearly unbreakable curse. And she’s got a hot mate, Dastien Laurent, to keep her busy. 

Things are looking up until the full moon ceremony rolls around. Before Tessa can strengthen her bond with Dastien, the local coven crashes the gates, demanding that Tessa—their heir apparent—be returned. If the pack wants to avoid a war with the witches, handing Tessa over is the only option. 

Tessa doesn’t want to cause an all-out fight, but joining a dark-magic coven isn’t on her to-do list, especially if embracing her magic side means parting with Dastien. When the coven leader tries to control Tessa with dark-magic, Tessa realizes she has to dismantle the coven or prepare the pack for war. Either choice will change her life—and her world—forever.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

The previous book left us with a huge question of whether Dastien and Tessa are going to make it. Is the Tribunal going to kill Dastien and how does Tessa feel about all of this.

Thank you so much to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book. Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own. 

Writing Thoughts:

If you would like to see my thoughts on the writing please find them here and here as they haven't changed. 

Plot Thoughts:

Okay. So this book had the complete opposite problem as the previous book. I felt as though some events were stretched out a bit making the book a bit longer than it needed to be. This book introduced us to the world of the Bruja and just how different things are. However, the author follows the exact same structure in every book so far. She introduces the problem which seems unbeatable and maybe even impossible and the Tessa tries to find a way to deal with what she has been presented and she conquers it at the end of the novel. Whilst the events in each novel is different, the pattern is becoming obvious. I still enjoyed the content of this book but I had this constant feeling that I just wanted things to go by faster.

Character Thoughts:

I loved how the author perceived Dastien as the one who couldn't handle not being with his mate. We are always shown in werewolf novels that the female is always the one who cannot bear to be without her mate. And while Tessa does miss and feels the effects of not having her mate with her, she soldiers on.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I loved that we got to see the other side. It was a great way of creating a contrast between the pack and the coven. Whilst the book allowed us insight into the coven, I felt as though we had just skimmed the surface. I am intrigued to see how the author will play the Bruja part of Tessa into the next couple of books. The plot structure started to become obvious and caused the novel to feel lengthy. However, with that being said, I quite enjoyed what I read. This is a really fun series to read and I find myself wanting to read more.  Thank you to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book!

Yours in Reading,
