For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way...

Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous Fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae’s cold war with humanity is about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the cross fire.

Couldn't resist getting started on the next one for Charles and Anna. I'm trying to read these two series the recommended way. 

Charles and Anna are traveling to Arizona. It is not a trip for Charles's role as the enforcer, but a trip for their personal pleasure. Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday and to visit some old friends. At least...that is how it starts. Charles and Anna soon discover that there is a dangerous Fae on the loose. It is replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae's cold war with humanity is starting to heat up and the werewolves are in the cross fire. 

I simply adore Anna and Charles. They are literally perfect for each other!!! It took me a couple of books to start loving Anna, but I love her now. She is truly growing into a badass but with a heart of gold. Charles is just so dang sweet and it hurts my heart that he has to have big walls around his emotions because of his role as an enforcer. He needs a break. 

We didn't get to see Bran much. We only got some phone calls. Boo. I love him!

I felt like this was a roller coaster for me. I was hooked and then I was bored. Then hooked again...and then bored. The flow seems jarring at times. By the last few pages I couldn't wait to get off this ride. 

Don't get me wrong...I loved seeing and meeting some folks from Charles's past but there were scenes that dragged. I loved Joseph and his family. I hope we get to see more of them. I feel like we will. *fingers crossed* 

OOOOOO the Fae. I don't fully blame them for hating the humans. Humans suck!! But leave the children alone guys. :/ Things are certainly bubbling up and I am super curious to see what is going to happen next. 

Overall, I did like this. I love seeing Charles and Anna. However, I did have some issues. There were a lot of lulls scattered throughout, but then some really exciting parts that had me staying up waaaay to late reading. It was pretty jarring. Can't wait for the next books. In the end, I'll give this 3 stars.
