Why do I keep reading these books? Because I hope that Ethan and Merit will get it on - well it finally happened - thank the sweet lord!!
But what the hell happened to Ethan?? Backpedal much?? Then realise what an ass you've been when it's too late.
Although they finally got sexy it was remarkably unsexy - almost mechanical.
Story wise? Shifters - still in the closet and about to make a very big decision - whether or not to move all the shifters back to Alaska. Ethan hopes that they will stay and form an alliance with Cadogan house. He agrees to provide security (in the form of Merit and himself) for the convocation and pre-meeting, but it becomes clear that someone wants to do away with the head shifter and take a few vamps out at the same time.
Once again it was a little bit too easy to figure out who was behind it all.
So, to summarize - Shifters out of the closet, Merit and Mallory made up, Merit and Ethan made out, then broke up, but might get back together again and Cadogan House nearly burned down.
