A sharp and energetic story filled with fast action, mysteries, attacks, and a new chance on making a future together, if they just stay alive long enough to consider it.
The atmosphere of the story is intense from the start, not only the threats and attacks are making the situation tense, but the return of Paige from death, the anger, disappointment, fear, and resentment, all mix with the relief and joy of seeing her again.
The romance stays more on the back burner on this novel, even though when giving it a chance it boils rabidly and passionately. Paige and Jax have enough on their hands, just trying to survive, to spent much time on talking about relationships, past and present. But the connection between them is obvious, the old feelings flaming again palpable, and the attraction between them is unavoidable.
The action is vivid, violent and vicious. The constant attacks, the life and death situations, all the possible culprits, the lack of clues, and danger to the whole family all makes the suspense poignant and fierce.
This story and the series has captured my mind, and the family has won me over in every story. They hold together, support each other, and don't fold when the world around them starts to crumble, but fight to make it right. I'm enthralled!
