This one was everything I had hoped it would be. Sterling "Harvard" Chase has been one of my favorite characters and the wait was worth it. Lots of excitement with this one, Dragos battle esculates. Chase is in a struggle for his sanity and losing his battle. Tavia is the ultimate surprise for the breeds. The last book was a lola point in the series for me, but this one redeemed it. I did not see where this one was headed and the ending was great!
