This is the third book in the series, and the main thing that’s kept me tethered to these books is the characters. I still enjoyed the plot, action, and humor, but it’s Zoey, Daniel, and Dev that have me hooked (though I’m still firmly on Team Daniel).
I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for some good angst. Between Daniel’s torment over his vampirism and the growing intimacy between Daniel and Dev that the two are struggling to understand, I was a pretty happy camper. And the cast of characters keeps growing, each book adding more perfectly imperfect, unique, three-dimensional characters to get to know and fall in love with.
And Zoey with her gun in that scene near the end–could she get any more badass than she was in that moment?! I loved it.
I will say though that this book had A LOT of sex. A lot. Including voyeurism and a public sex ritual. But if you can roll with it, I still recommend continuing the series. There’s lots of werewolves, Daniel letting his vampire freak flag fly, Dev’s brother whom you’ll hate but still won’t be able to help but like, fighting off animated corpses, Marcus’s persuasion powers, and epic battles to look forward to!
The first time around I was bothered by the way it seemed like EVERYTHING was revolving around sex, hence the 3.5, but I might give it the full 4 stars this time. Maybe I’ve just become accustomed to all the sex, or maybe it’s that I know the characters better, but, even though I’m still a little bothered by it, the book seemed to have more depth than before. And dammit if the relationship between Daniel and Dev isn’t pretty much my favorite ever. I mean, I ADORE the love between Daniel and Zoey, but this is different. And this is the book when it starts hinting at more and becoming deliciously tension-filled. And I can’t believe I missed Bris’s almost slip-up in the bathtub the first time!

When an ancient artifact enslaves every werewolf on earth, humanity’s only hope is a thief…
Zoey Donovan should be happy. Her love life couldn’t be better, her demonic nemesis is on the run, business is booming, and no one has tried to kill her in seven whole months. But without her best friend to share it with, it all seems a little hollow. Neil, her fabulous furry wingman, is missing and two grumpy werewolf bodyguards have taken his place.
Undaunted by her humorless babysitters, she intends to track Neil down even if it means risking her newfound romantic bliss. But someone else has plans for Zoey, and they don’t intend to play nice. Lucas Halfer is desperate for revenge, and he knows just how to get it.
An ancient Roman legend tells of an artifact that will grant its possessor the power to control all wolves. No one, including Daniel and Dev, believes the Strong Arm of Remus is real but Zoey thinks Halfer might have already located it. With every werewolf pack in North America gathering in Colorado, the demon could enslave an unstoppable army.
To save the day, and possibly the world, Zoey will have to find a way to steal the Strong Arm of Remus from one of the most powerful demons in existence. Then again, impossible is kind of her specialty.
