Goodreads Blurb:
Seven innocents have been brutally murdered on the streets of Los Angeles, yet the Shadow Alliance has no suspects and no leads. And as more bodies are discovered, the age-old feud between the vampires and werewolves threatens to explode and turn the city into a living nightmare.

With her back to the wall, Lissa Monroe—a strong-willed, ravishingly beautiful succubus who entices men to surrender their souls—agrees to go undercover for the Alliance. Her mission: infiltrate the mind of werewolf leader Vincent Rand, a ferociously alluring enemy who has a powerful hold over her. Lissa has never lost control of her deepest desires, but Rand is an impenetrable paradox, a principled soldier who fears nothing—except perhaps the darkness of his own past. As the city of Angels teeters on the brink of apocalypse, these two adversaries must join together to have even the slimmest chance of surviving a more lethal enemy hidden in plain sight.

Darcy's Review:
With this book we got a little different look into this world. The main couple of this book were so broken having been through so much in their lives. Lissa is a succubus, who is reborn life after life, often times not remembering what happened in those previous lives. Rand grew up in the hard part of LA, a gang member and killer before he hit double digits. So it was appropriate when these two lost souls managed to find each other. But being their pasts were so colorful they weren't without problems, which would have been solved had they just trusted their feelings and talked to each other, but then the book would have been so much shorter if they had. We also had the back story of political maneuvering within the Shadow World, which let us see characters from the previous books and introduced us to some new ones, some of whom I hope we get to know better in later books.
