Polar bear Therian, Rufus Ramanui, is one of Redcliffe’s most dangerous ISIC agents. He swore an oath to protect the innocent and serve the greater good. Now, he wants to retrain as a Phoniás – an assassin – believing it necessary to help his comrades in the ongoing conflict with the Lycans.

The only problem with that plan, is pretty bartender, Summer Matthews. She and Rufus have definite chemistry, but she’s currently dating someone else. Will it be too late to win her heart by the time he returns home?

Siblings, Jodie and Luke Fletcher, also intend to train as agents. With Rufus and the two Fletchers out of the country, Danny Archer, Captain of Redcliffe’s Urewera Unit, will have his hands full. Already Rufus’ boss, and Jodie’s boyfriend, Danny has a lot invested in their success. When things start to get complicated, both at the academy, and back in Redcliffe, will Danny be able to spread himself thin enough to avoid disaster?

***Amanda – #NerdGirlWitch’s  Review***
Wow! Johanna does it again! these books just get better and better! I love nothing more then to immerse myself in her world. Johanna creates such a beautiful world of shifters that are both family and friends. In this one I was so happy for Rufus and Summer for finally finding each other but in true Johanna fashion she had to throw a twisted and violent knot in the works that makes the whole story get run over!…lol

I think I cried through more then half of this one (Johanna is evil!…lol) which just goes to show what a amazing writer that Johanna is, to make the story so captivating and real that it makes you cry. I have always loved the character of Rufus he is such a genital giant who is so shy and has this huge sense of responsibility and honour. I liked him right from the start and getting to know him better in this story was awesome.

The training that Luke and Jodie went through was pretty awesome and I can’t wait to see them go threw more in the next book. I liked seeing them fight together, I think their powers and being family gives them an advantage that others don’t and it will be a great asset to them later on.

I can’t wait to see what Johanna has in store next! this was a beautiful book and ended in true Johanna fashion, a cliffhanger of epic proportions! I can’t wait to find out what happens! Make sure to get your copy and TBR this book today!
