When Caius, werewolf representative for region one, comes to Beth with a problem, she jumps at the chance to escape the boring desert dunes of Vegas. Anything had to be better than endless hours of sitting around watching strippers, watching but not touching.

More adventures from the riveting, imaginative, fantasy world
Beth found out more of her heritage with the boys in the last book, and that in part is why she chose the years separation. She decides events mean the time has come to end their temporary breakup which pleases all of them. Sasha chooses for political reasons to keep news of their reunion quiet, having discovered people were more forthcoming with information thinking he was once again an eligible bachelor. Ever the devious Elf, he wants to get the best out of any situation – though still constantly loses bets with Malachi!
In between sorting the shifters and the rescued children, helping the Allodials and her ongoing problems with Frimbia, Beth and Sig are trying to find solutions to the curse that had been placed. We learned of this in the last book, and it seemed to mean each time she had met the boys and been with them in past lives she had taken her own life and no one is certain of who or why or what was to blame until the existence of the curse was discovered. The boys frustrate her with lack of information – it seems their hands are tied in what they can reveal, Sig is reticent in what he discloses as he is worried for her safety and not certain of what exactly is the problem and her dreams are taking over her life and putting her in danger. She gets visited by a witch who keeps trying to persuade her to kill herself, and is very nearly successful a number of times. She needs very quickly to find out more about the curse to save her life but as always events conspire against her,.
Its another enjoyable and exciting foray into the fascinating world
Of course having eagerly awaited this book I’m now wanting to know what book four contains....oh I need more patience but thank goodness Sharon is a fairly quick writer and doesn't take a year per book as some do. As ever with a brilliant, engrossing series I'm torn between wanting to know how it ends and wanting more books to continue the series....always the same – its so sad when a good series ends but so frustrating when its still ongoing and you're wondering what’s going to happen.
As with the second book the spellings and grammar mistakes I mentioned in the first are virtually wiped out. This book is also a decent length at 385kb for a bargain price of just £1.95 – so many kindle “bargains” turn out to be little more than short stories which is so annoying.
Now the stars – well, picky as I am I have to give this one five stars for another riveting saga from the Realm. There's nothing I could fault here – the criticism I have about being in the dark when the characters do certain actions or have a silent mental conversations I’ve come to accept as
Just to note - I was given a copy of this book for review by the author but have not received any payment for my work. As always integrity is vital to me and my comments are genuine and not influenced in any way by receiving the book for free.
