This fourth book in Geissinger’s Night Prowler saga gives the impression that the series may be getting a bit long in the tooth. Even those familiar with the series may be confused by the multiple plotlines and two- or three-pronged villain threat. In addition, the characters and dialogue — such as the zealous self-flagellating albino villain — often feel like they’re borrowed from other authors. The romance is nice, but it gets lost in the plot and the politics and history of the Ikati shapeshifters, as well as the setup for the series to continue.

Ember Jones does little more than try to get through each day. When Christian McLoughlin walks into her rare books shop, she thinks his request for a first edition is the answer to her rent woes. Chemistry sparks between the two and they find themselves drawn to one another. But Ember’s past and Christian’s future are on a collision course to heartache — or to both their deaths.
