Description:

I used to hunt witches. Now I live with one.

To further complicate things, my past as a supernatural bounty hunter doesn’t exactly make me popular in these new circles I’m running in.

Shocker, I know.

Someone wants me dead.

Unfortunately for them, I’m pretty good at keeping myself alive. Not that it stops Ronan from being an alphahole.
He wants me to stay in Nathalie’s apartment and be safe while he handles the threat, all while holding Bree’s future over my head.

Not gonna happen.

To say I’m fucked is an understatement. But I’ve been in worse spots before.

Lucifer may be gone, but the corruption of magic isn’t. I have enemies everywhere.

And this time, they’re going to know what it means to burn.

Some things are worse than the devil.
To save Bree, I’ll become one of them.
 

Review:

Got this from the KU Library.

This starts from where the last left off with Ronan having Piper's sister Bree and Piper wanting her back. He tells her he's keeping Bree safe and that all she has to do is have the second blood exchange and he'll tell Piper how to save her. Only things don't go as planned as Piper ends up back in the Underworld - only now it's run by The Morrigan/Morgana Le Fay - and she ends up her prisoner.

I liked the interaction between Piper and Ronan. The way their relationship is written. The touches that distract, the timbre of his voice that seduces. It's enticing to read. It's not all about the full on sexual attraction with this, it's written to captivate and pull you into their complicated world. I like that.

As for the rest of the story line? Well strangely, I didn't really feel a lot happened in this one compared to the previous book but at the same time I wasn't bothered at all. I think it's just how the book is written. It dragged me in and kept me interested from start to finish. And then that ending... What a way to just cut the story off. It is a bit of a cliffhanger - fair warning.

It has me intrigued enough to want to read the next book in this series when it gets released.
