Publisher's Summary

It's not just Alexander Kempthorne's secrets bubbling to the surface of London's streets....

Time is running out for John "Dom" Domenici.

Outmaneuvered at every turn by the figure known as "M," only Kempthorne can free Dom, but juggling the horrors of his own past, containing a rising preternatural threat and the twisted machinations of "M" might just be too much, even for Kempthorne. Can Kage Mitchell be trusted to help?

Alexander Kempthorne lost an agent before. He'll not lose another. He'll do anything to save Dom, and if that means revealing who and what he truly is, then his time has come.

Contains mature themes.

4.5 Stars 🌟

I was sad to find out that there is not an audio book out for this book yet. In fact, there are not audio versions for the next three books. That is a shame. But, because I was SOOOOO invested in this story (this is the last book in this story arc trilogy), I actually kept going and just read the ebook version.

This entire series has been so incredibly unique, giving the readers a new and interesting world where Latents are born with magic. Magic has become outlawed and restricted, yet it is magic that gives those who have it power. Unfortunately, magic is not hereditary and they still have no idea how magic is distributed to individuals.

At this point, let me just say that I honestly DO NOT LIKE Kage at all. Seriously. He's an a**. I am getting frustrated how he keeps inserting himself in these events, and his behavior changes depending on his mood. Ugh!

So, this is the climax of this original story arc and it does not disappoint. Without going into spoilers, let me just say that things get crazy. There is a truly awful "bad guy" and then a couple of other also "bad guys". Then there is Dom, determine to try to fix things, while only seeming to make things worse....or does he?

I DID like the progression that we have seen between Dom and Kempthorne (it's about time) and I liked getting Kempthorne's POV. All in all, if you have already read the first two books in this series....this book is a MUST!

If you have not read the first two books - Stop Now. Go back and read books one and two...then come back to this book.

You will not be disappointed.
