Kate has come a long way from her origins as a loner taking care of paranormal problems in post-Shift Atlanta. She's made friends and enemies. She's found love and started a family with Curran Lennart, the former Beast Lord. But her magic is too strong for the power players of the world to let her be.

Kate and her father, Roland, currently have an uneasy truce, but when he starts testing her defenses again, she knows that sooner or later, a confrontation is inevitable. The Witch Oracle has begun seeing visions of blood, fire, and human bones. And when a mysterious box is delivered to Kate's doorstep, a threat of war from the ancient enemy who nearly destroyed her family, she knows their time is up.

Kate Daniels sees no other choice but to combine forces with the unlikeliest of allies. She knows betrayal is inevitable. She knows she may not survive the coming battle. But she has to try.

For her child.

For Atlanta.

For the world.

*SPOILERS AHEAD, This is the final book in a 10 book series*

I have loved the Kate Daniels series for a long time and I recently spent this year getting caught up to the current and last book that I knew would be releasing this year.

Going into this one I had a very specific expectation on what I thought would happen based on the build up of the previous books. I was very happy with some of the elements of this book. I’m very happy that Kate was not pregnant during the timeline of this book because I felt that would limit her from the big battle that we all knew was coming. I was so happy to see her little bundle of joy and how he was progressing having such a huge mix of powers. I also really loved that everyone finally felt settled in this book, each person knew their role and place and there was no one fighting amongst the groups of people anymore, well for the most part. I just liked the overall aspect of family in this book.

Now to the things that I was not thrilled with. I felt that once again Kate and Curran were very separate for a lot of the book. I know this was used as tension in the earlier books but come on already, they are married can’t we see them together more. I also really hated how her father was not the main issue in this book. We have spent 10 books leading up to them fighting and it was pretty lack luster because once again the main battle was with a different being.

Overall, I really do love this series and I see myself re-reading it because through the highs and lows I am here for Kate and her story. This was not quite the ending I had in mind but I did really like the way it wrapped up many of the long standing issues. As I said everyone feels more settled in this book and ready to take a much needed break. I will miss everyone here but it seems like a small part of the ending was left open so Julie might return with her own story, which I’m not happy she left Derek behind! This is a series I highly recommend to anyone, just read it.
