5th sentence, 74th page: I don’t know if he bribed them, blackmailed them, or what, but he’s done something.
This isn’t the last book in the series; luckily. However, it acts as a bit of a midway point, a mid-end to the series. It ties up some character arcs and storylines and answers so many questions that it is actually a really safe place to pause reading the series in. Not that I would recommend pausing this series, but regardless, it is a great way to neatly tie up some lose ends. Andrews also managed to seriously surprise me with the way in which they did this – the conclusion was startling and took a turn which I never expected.
There were a number of conclusions to plot lines throughout the piece – Andrea takes her place in The Pack; Kate is forced to face her father and past; and their issues with the order are bought to a head.
There isn’t as much of Curran throughout this tale – he is elsewhere, and Kate is left fighting her battles alone. It’s kind of nice though, so many stories, once the couple couples up, there is always an us and a we, but the fact that Kate reverts back to being independent and kicking butt on her own is exactly what I wanted. Strong independent women are great when they’re coupled, but they’re even better when they are able to stand independently of their partner.
