*I received an ecopy of this book via NetGalley. This has not influenced my review.*
This was the second book in the series, and it was just as much fun as the first.
One of the best things is that—you know how when you read a book with multiple POVs, there’s usually one that’s your favorite, and you spend all the time in other POVs just wanting to get back to them? Well, in this series, I enjoy all three POVs (the three characters in the triad) equally. Probably because each character is so likeable. They’re each fun and unique in their own way.
I also, once again, loved the intricacy of the supernatural world, how the magic/supernatural stuff worked, the dynamic between the different species, the politics/hierarchy among each species, etc. It’s well thought-out but always explained in a way that’s understandable.
The mystery was also good and really used all those supernatural intricacies I just mentioned. And I hadn’t guessed who the murderer was, so it kept me stumped.
I am also SO glad Curtis finally asked Luc and Anders what their relationship is because I literally spent the whole book trying to figure that out since it was clear that Curtis had feelings for Luc and Anders and they for him. So there wasn’t any official romance, but there was one M/M sex scene and definitely some potential romance for the series.
Overall, this was a fun, enjoyable book with likeable characters, and I look forward to seeing more of them (and maybe even some romance) in the next one!

More Books in the Series:
The law of three is everything: three vampires for a coterie, three demons for a pack, and three wizards for a coven. Those alone or in pairs are vulnerable to the rest. Luc, Anders, and Curtis—vampire, demon, and wizard—sidestepped tradition by binding themselves together.
When something starts brutally killing demons in Ottawa, the three find themselves once again moving among the powers who rule the city from the shadows—this time working with them to try to stop the killings before chaos and blood rule the streets.
Hunting a killer who seems to leave no trace behind, the triad are forced to work with allies they don’t dare trust, powers they barely understand, and for the good of those they already know to be corrupt.
They have the power of blood, soul, and magic. But they have to survive to keep it.
