This is the third in the series, and I read the first two a while ago, so catching up was a little difficult. I have to say I am pretty ambivalent about this book; this one (as well as the ones before it) are very violent and although the good guy eventually wins, it's almost anti-climactic. POSSIBLE SPOILER - I don't like sexual contact of any kind with the main characters and any outside parties once the H and h are introduced. It cheapens the story. That being said, I have to say the book is compelling - I read the whole thing this afternoon, but I was glad when I was done!

A viral Ebook The Spell I wasn't really a fan of Danny. She was too naive or just plain stupid, not sure which exactly. Totally clueless and let anyone take advantage of her. All that, made her seem weak to me. The book itself was okay. Won't be continuing with this series though.My many questions/comments: (bad sign for the author) So Imani has a really sexy voice. "If it weren't for that voice, Danny would be straight.." Um...that doesn't really make sense there. Considering Danny is (kinda) straight, probably more bisexual considering she's done stuff with Imani; the sentence would mean she was gay. Right? Was it so hard for the author to come up with character names? Lily St. Claire ans Claire St. James are just a smidge to similar for my liking.Big Question here: What exactly is a dormant? It's thrown around a lot, and I was never really sure as to what it meant. What...that she has a werewolf gene or something? BUT then Charlie is a 'female born werewolf' who is also a dormant. I'm confused.What exactly was the curse Charlie carried around on her wrist, that she got from her mate?Danny and gang help 2 kids that had been taken from their families. Why? No clue. The culprit? A naked man. Why was he naked? Again, no clue.I don't know about anyone else but all the referencing of people with their fangs exposed or showing...IDK, but I kept thinking of vampires more than werewolves there. Or when a werewolf would be injured, like after Lucas is beating, he 'drinks' blood from another werewolf? Sorry but that just doesn't sound right to me. Too much vampiry references.How old was everybody? Obviously the werewolves live a lot longer than humans. Do dormants too? Or would they have to be changed/turned first?The whole Danny thinking Lucas wasn't into her because of being a magic user...very annoying. I mean is she really that oblivious to the male species when they're interested in her? I mean there's Lucas and for years there was Jason. Or when they're in the cave and Lucas suddenly stops making out with her and she thinks it was because he 'all of a sudden' smelled her magic? Seriously? "The Akyri had lived for centuries alongside werewolves, and yet the latter had no clue of their existence." Why? Why would they hang around werewolves and not, IDK, interact with them? That part made no sense to me.When Lucas and Danny are out and about in town, Imani 'calls' for help. I get that Danny can heal anyone with any injury(?) but come on! You don't have to drop everything you're doing 24/7 when someones in trouble. I just couldn't imagine a life like that. I think I'd rather lose that power. Danny had been dreaming of Lucas and Phelan, why did she assume that they were her only two choices for mates? Technically Danny is a witch and werewolf then? At least, once she's been turned. She just has way too much going on. If Lucas could tell that dark magic was around Danny, after Jason gave her the necklace, why couldn't Danny tell a difference? There was a point when Danny was in bed and talking with Imani. Danny felt weak but Imani could still feel all her power surrounding her. Imani asks Danny to do something magical and she floats a snow globe over to them. Hence, she still had her magic. But then later on, it's like that conversation/realization never happened. "If she did, she would lose what remained of her magic." But it wasn't gone!Lucas, Danny and some enforcers end up going to unknown, supposedly, safe house. One enforcer is at the front the door. The house ends up blowing up. "It was massive and bald and Lucas immediately recognized it as belonging to the enforcer." What exactly was it? I would have assumed it to be a body, but then why was it bald? Or had the guy with less than a seconds notice, switched to a werewolf? That just seemed kind of doubtful to me. Why after beating Lucas, does Phelan say "Your witch stole my car." ??? Then there was a seemingly very random sexual comment made about Danny, by Phelan. "Little Danny would make the most wonderful sounds while taking it up both holes." I didn't even understand where that comment came from. I mean it didn't seem like Phelan was sexually interested in Danny. I'm sure he mainly said it to get Lucas upset but still. Why say that in the first place?Who thought it would be a great idea to have sex in Jason beds? Like after Lucas, sorta saves Danny? I mean hello, Jason and friends could have come back anytime while they're having sex. I was really surprised he didn't. And seriously...why is it whenever I read a sex scene, the girl ALWAYS has to comment on his cock? "He was so big..." Couldn't he have just been average, and she just make a different comment? I think not, they always have to be big. Why the author keep mentioning the fact that Lily was a seer? I mean it makes sense to mention this at the beginning of the story when Lily is first brought it. But she does it again at the very end. Why?After the Overseer dies, why does Danny say that Charlie has no family now either? Wasn't the Overseer actually Charlie's mates grandfather? Not hers? And besides, she still has her mate. That made no sense there.
