Smashwords book reviews by Patricia Balderston

    The blurb told of a betrayal that would rock Sam's world. As a prolific reader (4 - 5 books a week) and from experience with the previous novels in the series, I thought that I knew what it would be before I began reading. I was right, the who and the how, and thought Sam handled the situation very well and went on with her case. Then the last two pages of the book slammed into me like the proverbial freight train. The angry tears flowed, I threw the iPad to the floor (oops!) and flew out of the house for a long walk! Thank you, J.R. Rain, for your ability to make me feel that your characters are so real that I would experience such sorrow and fear for Sam.

    Great end to the series, both in plot execution and caliber of writing. Finally opening up Bram's motivations to the reader was an excellent way to tie all the previous novels into the finale. At the risk of including spoilers, the "glamour" scene and the "death" scene were two of the most emotionally intense reading experiences I have had in an urban fantasy lately.
