All is well in Stella’s world. For the first time in a very long time she feels safe and secure in the knowledge that she’s put the Brotherhood behind her. However, she’s desperately searching for an answer that will set her ex-boyfriend free from a dangerous pact he agreed to in order to protect her, and ensure the survival of the witches. So when her old friend Etoile asks her to run a few secret errands prior to the swearing in of the High Council, Stella cautiously agrees. However finding a dead man on her doorstep, clutching a torn note bearing only her name, doesn't figure into any of her plans. Who is he and what does he want?
neighbour and old flame Gage in tow, they head north to discover more
about the dead man. There they are plunged into a mystery that appears
to span every faction of the supernatural world, and more danger than
they could possibly imagine. Just what is it that the werewolves,
demons, and witches are searching for and how far will they go to gain
the ultimate prize?
With the High Council inauguration drawing
close, Stella must race against time to save what could be their only
hope of peace, draw out the enemies in their midst, and find the answers
she is so desperately searching for. From Goodreads.
Another really good book in the Stella Mayweather series. It all starts nice and cosy but that quickly changes and the book is full of intrigues and secrets. I knew from another reader that this book would end in a cliffhanger, I just didn't realise how big a cliffhanger. I will definitely get the last book in the series as soon as it gets published in December.
