Book Description: 

  To live in the light, they hunt in the dark… 

The power of Helena’s magic has made her a target for the Coven. She wanted no part in the war of the witches, but it’s out of her hands now. She has to make a stand – and she does that by helping the Hunters and their allies against their common enemy. And now, the witch who ripped Helena’s future apart is coming. Sybbyl’s vengeance is swift and terrible, pitting the two against each other. But Helena doesn’t have to fight the Coven alone. A seductive warlock offers his aid. Helena is hesitant to give her trust to him – because it’s more than her life on the line. It’s her heart as well. As the most feared and respected warrior of the Varroki, Jarin is used to being on his own. But with the Coven’s quest to locate the bones of the First Witch escalating, he finds it increasingly difficult to retain his solitary existence. When Jarin encounters Helena, he is helpless to resist her. She’s everything he didn’t know he wanted, and with her help, he’s convinced that maybe his people can finally defeat their foe. But there’s so much more at play than they know―ties in blood and sacrifice―and the loss that’s sure to follow may be greater than any of them can bear.

My Review:

Somehow every time I read a Donna Grant book I swear that it is my favorite one ever, but this time I think that will hold true, at least of The Kindred series.  This book was not only what we have become accustom to in a Donna Grant novel, the romance, the action, the twists and turns, (oh those twists and turns!) but also a deeply emotional journey for this couple, The Hunters, and The Varroki.

This is the third full novel in The Kindred series, there is a prequel novella, Everkin, that I highly suggest reading prior to this one.  You can jump in here and not be completely lost, but I think your enjoyment of the series will be greater if you begin at the beginning.  We jump right into the thick of things with Helena on the run from the Coven, surviving almost solely on sheer will, things take a drastic turn for her when one of the fabled Varroki show up.  Decision and plans must be made, lives are put at stake, and love begins to shine for more than one couple.  

I will be honest there is one completely shocking moment for me and I have no idea how Donna is going to play this.  I see that there is a story being born but it is very difficult as a reader to walk away from the other, especially in the dramatic fashion in which it occurred.  It was truly a WTF did she just do moment and completely unexpected.  I admit I love it as much as I hate it, lol.

There are so many twists and turns, a staple of a Donna Grant book, so giving you a run down of the book would completely tragic on my part and I wouldn't do that to you so  there isn't a ton of information to give you except expect the unexpected.  

You will fall in love with this couple.  I love all of Donna's couples, their love always runs deep, but there is something to me special about this couple.  The openess they have, the choices they must make, the emotional pain that Helena has endured and the solitary life that Jarin has lead, to see them come together and be exactly what the other needs is beautiful.  If you are looking for a strong heroine look no further than Helena.  She has made her own way for so long and will do everything in her poser to protect not only the ones that she loves but all of humanity.  Jarin, what can I say? He is one of those hero's that could have totally gone alpha bad boy but is instead a quiet beautiful soul full of strength and compassion.  I am also entirely in love with Valdr and Andi, Jarin's extraordinary 'friends' that you must meet.  

If you are looking for a fantasy read that will keep you flipping pages look no further.  I am so ready for the next book in this series, until you have read it you can't know exactly how ready I am, haha.  I won't say that there is a huge cliff hanger, but Donna definitely leaves us wanting to know who, what, and when.  It can't come soon enough!
