This is a well written adventure. The paranormal universe is well established early on and is an interesting blend of Celtic and shifter worlds, made even more intriguing by being set in the New Orleans area. The main characters, Rhys and Makenna, have strong personalities. Their path is not an easy one, and there were times where I was very frustrated by their inability to just have a conversation. McNew does throw in a really amazing twist into this story. At that point I was invested and couldn’t wait to finish the book. What kept it from a five star read for me was the amount of on page violence. It was too much for me. Yes it was a war/battle. Just didn’t feel like it was all necessary. I found myself skimming those scenes and had to go back and read them again to make sure I didn’t miss anything critical to the storyline. I didn’t.
