Book Description

A fear she can't escape and a desire that can't be tempered...

Ten years ago, Perry fled her thrall contract to find sanctuary among the Nighthawks. In that time, she's become a respected woman of the Guard, and she's wanted Garrett Reed for as long as she can remember. But when a new case takes a chillingly familiar turn, Perry finds herself once again in the path of a madman...only this time, there's nowhere left to run.

Out of their depth and racing against time, Perry and Garrett must learn to trust the desire sparking between them...or risk losing themselves forever to the darkness stalking London's streets.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous series 20 Sept. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Do you enjoy romance? Are you a fan of vampires? Well if you said yes to either if those then you have to read this series. This is the fourth full length novel and do not be out off by the steampunk world it's set in as this author has an amazing way with words that truly brings this story to life. Not the normal vampire story but something incredibly well crafted set in a dark world full of greed and hypocrisy . Pick up this book and be prepared to ignore everything else because once you start you won't want to put it down .
    This starts off in a strange way if I'm honest. There's the fact that Garrett has been made acting commander of the Nighthawks which he is eminently suited for but it's not a role that he ever aspired to. Then to add to his problems there's his rising bloodlust which seems triggered by his long term partner Perry. Garrett is seeng Perry in a whole new light and it's something he is more than willing to explore but Perry is a woman rife with contradictions and has secrets that she fears to share with anyone .
    It would seem that there could well be a serial killer stalking the streets and it's somehow tied to the Echelon. Girls are going missing and when bodies are discovered it's up to Garrett and his team of Nighthawks to discover just who is responsible . Together with Perry he sets out to investigate but rumours of a steel jawed monster cause Perry to fear her past is about to catch up with her. She has remained hidden in plain sight for all this time, is it possible her carefully crafted new life is about to come crashing down? There's a madman out there and no one is safe . Garrett and Perry are both hiding things from each other but they can only prevail if they do the unthinkable , trust each other!
    So I'm a little on the fence with this one.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, series still go strong! 7 Sept. 2014

    Joint review with Victoria, my co-blogger


    I admit while I enjoyed this book, I couldn't help but think that it missed out on some juicy plot-related opportunities, which made me feel slightly disappointed. But only slightly, mind you.

    Garrett and Perry is a good pairing, and I was curious to see how their relationship will progress from friendship to love, and in this regard Bec McMaster did not disappoint. They are a good pairing, although Garrett committed himself to Perry much faster than she did. However, it was understandable in light of grave secrets Perry wasn't ready to share with him. I might not have understood why she decided not to trust Garrett with that, but I could respect her decision.

    What do you think, V.?


    I'm not a huge fan of friends to lovers trope, but I think it worked well here, and I found myself enjoying this story quite a bit. Bec McMaster, as always does a great job with her characters who are exciting, daring, and definitely swoon-worthy; there is also palpable chemistry, spunky banter, and dark Victoria world full of politics, danger, and steampunk gadgetry - all of the elements which I love in my books. So it's safe to say I'm quite a fan of Ms. McMaster's writing in general and this installment in her London Steampunk series certainly did not disappoint in my opinion.


    Oh yeah, they were definitely swoon-worthy! *grinning* Apart from Perry and Garrett we also met the whole crew although briefly, and it was very nice to see them all. I probably miss Blade the most, but Barrons... He intrigues me very much! He is a definite future hero material for one of Bec's books.

    Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
    So, steampunk? Not really my thing, I though...til I received one I hadn't realised was in that genre and loved it. Since then I've found some I've loved and some that were mostly over my head. This one was perfect, the right blend of romance and adventure, along with some fabulous paranormal aspects.
    Steampunk seems to me as if in “our” world just when the age of industrialisation came in a different turn was taken, and science followed a path based around steam, with engines replacing horses and a huge development on artificial body parts and integration. Fascinating in a way to think maybe that could have happened..
    Anyway, this is book two, I'd not read book one but its easy to follow. Perry – what a woman, fierce and independent, one of the few lady blue bloods and a top Nighthawk. She's loved Garret, her Nighthawk partner, for most of the past nine years, but kept it secret. That's not all she's hiding and now her past is coming back to haunt her, and bring her into terrible danger. After their last mission Garret looks at Perry differently. She's always been his valued colleague and partner, one of the lads, and yet when they needed to dress up to infiltrate a society function he saw her in a very different light, dressed up in current ladies fashions and being all he can't get her out of his head and doesn't know what to do. Both think the other doesn't reciprocate their feelings..add in that Garret has just been promoted to leader of the Nighthawks, he's having troubles over his blood control after nearly dying recently – but can't tell anyone- and that there is a serial killer on the loose and things are tough all round.
