Summary:
In a world where shape shifters are openly bisexual, vampires have insatiable sex drives, and warlocks emit pheromones that make everyone around them horny, Zander Knight finds himself at a crossroads. He emerges from a coma with the realization that that he may be the only living being in the world that is part vampire, part magical and part shape shifter.

Unable to understand or control his new powers, his condition puts him at odds with his family who is at the very center of a movement to end supernatural race mixing. If that weren’t enough, he is being forced to choose between his place in the House of Aleph and his position as the Alpha mate for his lover and pack leader, Zuri Tau Long.

Just as Zander’s world is changing, so is the supernatural community. New threats arise as different factions of vampires, shifters and magicals fight to take their place in the new order. Zander is left deciding between fighting for his family and friends, and fighting to save the world that he has come to know and love. This is more than just one warlock’s love story – this is a supernatural adventure

Review: So much backstabbing, and spying, it never ends. There is so much happening throughout the book. It’s book four, and I was able to fill in some blanks, but I think you really need to read books 1 – 3 for everything to make sense, as well as to really get a sense of who’s who and the relationships between them all. There are many characters and not having read books 1-3 makes it a touch overwhelming and confusing in spots. There are some reminders/hints as to the relationships between some of the characters, but it’s not a matter of something repeated over and over.

I’m not sure if the book is supposed to be about Zander, but this seemed to be.

I like the characters, and the interactions. They are fun, true throughout the book, and have depth to them.

My only issue was after the magicals were attacked, nothing was mentioned about it.

The story is intriguing, full of action, and so many twists and full of different kinds of characters. Almost too many characters, but that might be because I haven’t read books 1- 3. A chapter from page 164 explains the book well.
“Aren’t most disputes of this nature silly? Isn’t it ridiculous that people hate each other because of the color of their skin, or because of who they choose to love, or because one is magical or another is a shifter?” (p. 164)
This book is about typical fears, biases that many people have and others thrive on.

The ending is abrupt, and leaves you screaming “What”. It’s a great action packed ending, just that it ends abruptly.

I will be checking out books 1 – 3.
