She has come to right the balance. He seeks to destroy it… 

Somewhere on another astral plane, a lover’s quarrel between gods, millennia old, has come full circle. 

Ea, a dark and ancient god and the father of the first Werewolf, is hell bent on destroying his supernatural offspring. And he’ll use anyone and everyone he can to get it done even from beyond the physical. For now, his vessel is the evil and mysterious Indra, a witch whose powers only slightly outweigh her penchant for hitting on the help. 

Too bad Alex is cured and once again immune to Indra’s invasive magic. A healing from which Sam almost didn’t come back.

Hina, the wolf mother goddess, has sworn to protect her cubs. And she lives on… inside Samantha Knight. Sort of like that still, small voice of reason. Except MAGICAL and pissed at her ex. If Sam can’t find a way to heal the wolves and stop Indra from harming them, the goddess will take matters into her own hands.

But an appearance like that promises destruction, chaos, and worst of all: no more Sam. Indra isn’t holding back.

 Sam is on the run. Alex is in a cage.

 The clock is ticking.

Just a note for transparency - I haven't yet finished this book.  I'm about 80% done, but the days on the calendar have come through quickly late and my schedule the past couple weeks didn't allow for as much reading as I had hoped. However, I have read enough that I feel I can leave a fair and honest review.

Book four and going strong. Something I notice about reading lately is that my attention span just isn't what it used to be.  Just being honest there.  It takes something I really love nowadays to keep me interested.  Sam and Alex have managed to do that.

I am having an awesome time on this adventure to see what happens next.  I haven't quite figured out all of the answers yet, and that is something I am highly appreciative of.  The characters are all developing nicely together, and in book 4 we get to see all of my favorites in close quarters, which means there are lots of interesting little situations popping up just from them all being in one place at one time.

So basically my reviews have been "Sam and Alex, yay I love them"  And if you've been keeping up with me, you know they are great.  But maybe now it's time to look at some other characters?  How about RJ and Brittany?

Technically they are support characters, but oh my goodness these two are full of awesome.  They've both got Sam's back and the way they are with each other - let's just say I love the smart ass comebacks and the chemistry they have sparking.

At first I thought RJ was going to show his face in the series and fade away, but he has stuck around.  His character shows a real strength and heart that I love.  He is a true person, and all of that comes right through perfectly.

And Brittany?  Holy cow the girl cracks me up.  When you first meet her you think she is just some co-ed that is in the story just because she is Sam's roomie.  Then you learn there is a lot mroe than meets the eye with her.  Brittany is a firecracker, and I'm finding the times that I laugh or smile really big are scenes that have her in them.  She's quick with the witty replies, and she is pretty badass.  These are traits I love in my characters.

With all that being said - I'm not sure how this book is going to end.  I have a feeling a betrayal is coming, and I'm hoping and crossing fingers it's not anyone I totally love.  But like I said, that's what is awesome, because I don't know.  But what I do know is that this is a terrific series and Heather Hildenbrand keeps knocking it out of the park.  I love the world she has built with strong yet real and tangible characters.  If you are into supernatural, I think definitely add this to your list.
