GoodReads Summary:

Vampires, and werewolves, and demons, oh my. Rhiannon thought facing off against a deranged child vampire was the most dangerous task she would ever have to undertake, but she's about to discover making a deal with a demon is far, far worse. Sent forward into another reality, one in which vampires are now dominating nearly extinct humans, she realizes the sooner she returns to her vampire lover, Disco, the better.pUnfortunately, time changes a lot of things, including those most trusted around her. When she's faced with a loss and betrayal unlike any she has ever known, her focus shifts from severing the debt between the demon that wants to kill her, to exacting a revenge that will bring forth consequences she never could have fathomed. By reaching out to the darkness lingering within her, she'll find the strength to push forward despite the circumstances that would see her dead and buried.pAfter all, when it's all said and done, all that she has left to lose is her soul

My Thoughts:

Fantastic! I love this series and I cannot wait for the next one!

+ Story:

Love the story line, being sent into the future I did not see that coming. Disco is dead in this future and only Paine remains. I'm so so glad that Rhiannon and Paine have this time to figure things out about each other. I was so hoping for this ever since the first one! Don't get me wrong I love Disco, but I thought Paine deserved some happiness.

+ Lore:

Great vampire lore as always, then there are some werewolves through in as well..wonder if we'll see some of those same wolves again? We'll see I guess!

+ Romance:

Talk about complicated, Rhiannon barely has time to accept the fact that she's in the future and Disco is long since dead, even though to her it feels like she'd only seen him a few days before. I felt like Paine kind of pushed her into getting together to quickly and he used her grief to his advantage. Then again he'd been waiting to see her again for 100 years so I guess his patience must have been waring thin. Either way I can't wait to see what happens with this love triangle. Usually I'm not a fan of the love triangle but this one is so good!

+ Side Characters:

Goose and his daughter were my favs of the side characters. Don't have much to say about them.

+ World/Setting:

The future looks grimm in this book. Thought it was well thought out and complete. It must be complicated to write a time travel book but I have to hand it to this author it comes out leaving us wanting tons more!

Nit Picks:

Disco's anger at Rhiannon when she returns to the present day.. I understand it, but I personally didn't like it.

Favorite Part:

All of Rhiannon's kick ass moments!
