Publisher's Summary

Dirk never wanted to end up on Zaroff's island. He'd cheated and lied, stole and tricked, begged and crawled, all to save his own life, one payment at a time.

But now the debt's come due, and Dirk missed his payments. He must muster every ounce of guile and strength at his disposal, must embrace the supernatural powers he'd struggled with for so long, must call upon allies both old and new to face the most terrifying foe a man can face. . .

The consequences of his own actions.

He doesn't know if he'll survive, but he won't go down without a fight.

Great story, and the best narrator ever!

I really did love the story, and I'm going to immediately look for the third in the series. but, I should note, what makes it even more special is the narrator, Scott Aiello! I'm sure I will go forward and listen to any book that he narrates..

Hard to Rate This One

I really enjoyed the first book, but this one was hard to swallow at times. I think I was mostly disappointed in how Dirk approached his problem. I saw Dirk as a fairly crafty and intelligent person who could read other people well so I was thinking and hoping this was going to be a book about him outsmarting the colonel. It wasn't. Furthermore, his actions at some points seemed very unlikely for the sake of the later plot, which is something that annoys me above all else with some fiction.

With all that said, if you ignore how we get there, the later part of the book was interesting and it did seem satisfying, if not still very unlikely. The real hero of the book, though, was Cookies-N-Cream. His parts were masterful and I really loved his relationship with Dirk.

In the end, this was almost a three star rating, but I asked myself if I would read the next book when it was available and had to answer, "Yes," so it squeaks by with a four.
