Nikki Jefford loves fictional bad boys and heroines who kick butt. Books, travel, TV series, hiking, writing and motorcycle riding are her favorite escapes. She loves meeting people from all walks of life, from around the globe, and wouldn’t trade her French husband in for anyone – not even Spike!
She’s a third generation Alaskan, born & raised in Anchorage, now living in northern Washington. Crazy about her dog, Cosmo. (Writer’s best friend.) The dark side of humanity fascinates her, so long as it's balanced by humor and romance.

Book Info: Genre: Paranormal
Reading Level: Young Adult
Recommended for: fans of YA books with magic and a bit of romance
Trigger Warnings: treachery, deceit, violence, attempted murder.
My Thoughts: Is isn't made obvious prior to this, but we end up with some background on Adrian at the start of this book and his family is Russian. What kind of Russian last name is Montez? Not a typical one, that's for sure! But it turns out Adrian's nan married a Spaniard. Yeah, that's a minor spoiler, but nothing that will ruin the story for you.
There were some editing problems with this book, which surprised me because the first were so clean. I don't recall them all, but I do remember “heal” for “heel” and I think it was “pn” for “on”, among others. However, they didn't seriously detract from the story, so they were mostly fairly easy to forget.
This is listed as being a trilogy, so this completes the set. I thought it was a decent ending. Gray and Lee, and Charlene in a new body (no hints on what type!), and everyone more or less happy. I was pretty happy to finally have some closure on the Adrian thing, as well as some of the other problematic characters, like Holloway and Ryan. I quite like this author's style. She has a few more books out there, so I'll have to take a look at what she has. If you like paranormal books with a touch of romance and a whole lot of magic, then look no further. You should love these.
