"fast-paced, action-packed seventh novel "

Doctor Rikki Kinn is one of the world's foremost virus hunters. Alone in the world, she has survived the unspeakable ... having been held prisoner and tortured once already. She's a CDC agent working in the depths of the Congo on the hunt for a deadly new plague that has seemingly surfaced out of nowhere. But nothing could have prepared her for the attack on her and her fellow group of scientists. And what she really can't understand is why the mercenaries are intent on kidnapping her.

Amiri has learned the hard way why it is vital that he stay alone in the world. Never allowing himself to get too close to anyone, he's learned not to depend on or need anybody. As a cheetah shapeshifter born in Africa and then captured and tortured by the Consortium, he was rescued by the Dirk and Steele agency and now works as one of their agents. It's been 14 years since he has last set foot in Africa, but when his latest assignment brings him back to his native land, it brings up ugly memories from his past. What he wasn't prepared for was his reaction to the lovely Dr. Rikki Kinn. Once he realizes the seriousness of the threat to Rikki, Amiri realizes that not only is Rikki's life at risk...but also his heart.

Marjorie Liu does it again in this fast-paced, action- packed seventh novel of her paranormal Dirk & Steele series. Her ability to weave together these in-depth stories of love, adventure, and magic never ceases to amaze me. I've been reading this series since its inception and am constantly amazed at how Ms. Liu manages to keep the story lines both fresh and creative while continuing to add depth to each character that few authors can achieve. With The Last Twilight she manages to bring the story along in such a way that the reader can't help but feel they are a part of the plot. And although this story is technically a stand alone, I would recommend that you have read the previous books prior. If for nothing else to get the full effect of the world that these "special" agents are living in.

**A PNR Reviewer Top Pick**

Doctor Rikki Kinn is a virus hunter - one of the best - working in the Congo for the CDC. But when mercenaries attempt to kidnap her in order to prevent an investigation into a new and deadly plague, her boss calls in a favor from the men at Dirk & Steele...

Africa is Amiri's home, where he was raised to race as a cheetah, to wake with the sun. It is also a land of lingering nightmare, where he was kidnapped and experimented upon. Now, against his better judgment, Amiri has been asked to return to his homeland by his colleagues in Dirk & Steele - men who are friends and brothers, who like himself are more than human.

He must protect a woman who is the target of murderers, who has unwittingly involved herself in a conflict that threatens not only the lives of millions, but Amiri's own soul...and his heart.
