"There is not a single thing I can say against this series, it's simply one of the best going"

Be advised, this is book 18 in an ongoing story line. There are no spoilers for this book. However, if you have not read the series and plan too, reader be advised.

Alpha Del -Rey Delgado is on a mission, to wipe out the council and all threats to the Breeds. He will do anything to achieve his goals. He will also do anything to assure the safety of Anya Krobrin, a young Russian scientist bent on the protection of the Coyote Breeds she calls friends. Del-Rey will also do anything to get what he wants, and what he wants is Anya, from the moment he sees her. Unfortunately, as surely as he knows she will be his, no matter how many years it will take him, he also knows... He will betray her.

Anya trusted Del-Rey Delgado from the moment she laid eyes on him, she also loved him, trusted him. Little does Anya know this man will be the catalyst that changes her life forever. Betrayal is a bitter pill to swallow though, even her love and attraction for Del-Rey can't get past the betrayal of her heart and soul, and she can't forget. No matter how it might destroy them in the end, it's fight or flight.

As the fight against the council wages on and the dangers to the mates grow worse, Del-Rey must make choices that will ensure the safety of his mate. Her love and safety are paramount and all that matter in the face of council assassins. Sometimes, both safety and love are just not possible goals to reach.

I adore the Breeds, there is not a single thing I can say against this series, it's simply one of the best going. Ms. Leigh can weave a tale that hooks you in from page one and keeps you going through the entire book, right up until you turn that last page. However, this book in particular was especially filled with tension, be sure you can take angst, because this book has it in spades. Del-Rey's character is domineering and sure of himself and Anya is strong-willed and deeply in love. The emotional conflicts in this book will have your stomach tied in knots, a good and bad thing, depending on your point of view! There was never a dull moment to spare.
