Cassidy and her mystical ring are stuck in the middle of a battle between the Demon World and the Mortal Realm…

A conflict with the demons has left Killian, head of the Demon Hunters, injured and stripped of his powerful Demon Hunter tattoo. Cassidy is tasked with caring for him in the Human Realm until he is well enough to cross back into the Demon Realm. But soon she notices he is acting strangely and begins to suspect something is wrong.

She seeks help from Serena, a retired Demon Hunter, but it’s too late…

Cassidy returns home to find Killian has gone missing. Tyler, a friend with his own set of mystical powers, shows up to tell her that Killian is at his house demanding a meeting with the Demon Queen Rya. She and Serena have to work fast to find a way to heal Killian and get Cassidy’s ring away from him before Rya is involved. Meanwhile, Tyler and his dad have their own plan to make a deal with the Queen.

The Queen has a decision to make, but not before securing her leverage…

Rya wants time to consider the offer presented by Tyler’s dad, and takes Cassidy to the Demon Realm as collateral. The Demon Queen must choose between Tyler, the mate she was promised, and the mystical ring that was forged for her years ago.

Tyler is forced to face the inner demon he has worked so hard to restrain. Will he succeed, or will he be lost to the darkness, leaving Cassidy to be sacrificed by the demons?

As both sides gain alliances, the tension between the realms grows and the time for action draws near…

***Valerie – #NerdGirlVal’s  Review***
D. A. Roach continues on with holding you captive in her story. When you read the line, ” I can feel it inside me, stirring awake, wanting control…..” -Tyler”, it makes you want to see if his demon has a chance to surface. Then what about Killian and his torn arm? Will he survive and be able to continue as the head of his clan? Cassidy, will she escape the grasps of Rya’s hands? All this and more are answered in this part of the story. You are kept guessing, searching for answers. Then there are the surprises and twists and turns that you never see coming, because D. A, Roach is just that good. This book is just as exciting as the first. You will find yourself turning the pages as fast as you can to get to the next part to see what happens.
Cassidy is taking care of Killian while he heals. His arm has had skin graft and lots of magic to help it heal back to as normal as possible. Killian starts with a fever and she gets worried, but doesn’t show it to keep Killian calm. During the night, Cassidy has a strange dream about Killian and in the morning she finds Killian acting strange. Maybe he is sleep walking from the meds. So she doesn’t think much about it.
Killian disappears and Cassidy finds him at Tyler’s house being kinda held up by his father, Killian want sto see Rya and Tegan wants to hand over the ring to Rya. Win-Win situation. Cassidy enters the back to help Killian with his meds and change this dressing. Killian and Tyler have time to get to know each other while they wait for Rya. Cassidy is gathering the hunters and supplies to fight Rya and save Killian.
Tyler confronts his father about who he really is. He didn’t really like what he heard, but thought that was it all the long. Tyler does love his father, but doesn’t agree with some of his actions. Tyler learns about his tattoos and Rya and how he fits into all this. You may or maynot be surprised on what you read!
As Tegan, Tyler, Cassidy and Killian meet Rya and Jace at the cemetery to exchange the ring and Cassidy (she doesn’t know that part), the hunters are hiding in the woods waiting to attack. But it all goes wrong and Tyler finds a new power, Rya takes Cassidy and Killian is held by Jace. The fight and hunt for Cassidy is on.
Now the good stuff starts and you will have to read the story to find out what that is. Can they save Cassidy? Can Cassidy survive Rya’s cell? Will Tyler be able to keep his demon hidden deep down inside him? And how will it all turn out? But of course the end is “to be continued” and you sigh an Ugh!
