‘You left when we needed each other most’ 

When I first started this book I was slightly confused at what was going on, and then I realised that this was a part of series and I was yet to read the first and second book, however once I realised that I carried on reading it anyway going into the book like it was the first one (obviously I do recommend you read the first two books first to avoid confusion) despite that I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was such a good read and I’ll probably pick up the first two in the series one day.

When Liam left Claire, she didn’t think she’d ever see him again, as much as she loved him, and he loved her, he left thinking it was better for her, to keep her safe, whereas Claire just thinks Liam was running away from everything. With Liam being a bounty hunter and Claire being infected with magic, he should have turned her in and she should be in the prisons district called Devils Isle. Except Liam didn’t follow the rules, instead he decided to help Claire get control of her magic, and he introduced her to an underground group of paranormal and humans who she quickly became close too. 

But with Liam’s secrets of what he’d done for Claire, Liam's now forced into hiding especially with his new magic hanging over his head. With Claire learning that a government agent has been killed and Liam is the number one suspect, she races against the government to find him before they do. When Claire successfully comes across Liam, the tension between them is so real, so well written and described that it’s like you can feel it between them, with Liam not wanting to talk about it and Claire wanting to know why he left, she pushes her feelings for Liam aside and gets on with the mission of finding out whether he did kill the government agent, or if he was being set up. With Liam’s knife being the murder weapon and with ‘For Gracie’ written on the wall, there’s no other suspect apart from him, all the evidence points in his direction, but Claire refuses to believe it, and she has to prove the government wrong by trying to figure who the real murderer is, but they have to do that without getting caught by containment who have issued a warrant for Liam’s arrest, and for Claire’s. 

As the investigation goes on, they start to realise that there may be more to the murder than they first thought, someone’s out to frame Liam and they don’t know why. Proving that Liam is innocent isn’t going to be easy, but Claire’s going to do everything in her power to have his name cleared. Liam and Claire are running out of time, and their enemies are drawing closer, can Claire find the evidence she needs with the help of her friends before time runs out? Or will she lose Liam forever? 

I really enjoyed reading this book, it’s action from start to finish and has you on the edge of your seat wanting to find out who is trying to frame Liam and why, and I just found myself rooting for Liam and Claire to get past what happened and get back together! I loved their characters and you instantly fall in love with them, I absolutely love the way the book is written as well, it ties everything together but oh my god one thing I wasn’t a fan of was that ending?! How can you just leave it there?! Literally need the next book to find out what’s going to happen. What a cliffhanger. It definitely leaves you like ‘wait wait no no no where’s the rest of the book please it can’t just finish like that!!'

If you’re a lover of all things paranormal, action, mystery and romance then this book is one hundred percent right up your street.
