New York Times bestseller Dianna Love's Beladors are back with a special story for Evalle and Storm!

This is the book fans have been waiting for - Evalle and Storm's. To bond or not to bond should be a simple question, but nothing is ever easy in the life of this particular Skinwalker and Belador couple.

Investigating a strange death in unfamiliar territory threatens to rip them apart forever as Storm tracks a predatory majik killing in the cruelest ways and Evalle makes a dangerous gamble to save what's left of her disappearing preternatural powers ... and herself.

Until he completes the mating bond with Evalle, Storm has no way to find her if she's kidnapped again and preternaturals are actively hunting her in a chaotic Atlanta. Word hasn't gotten out that she can no longer shift into a powerful gryphon. When Storm's estranged uncle in Arizona pleads for help in finding the cause behind a strange death on his tribe's reservation, Storm agrees to go just to get Evalle out of the city and somewhere safe. A good idea on paper, not so much when he confronts a predatory majik that attacks his.

Prior to surviving a brutal imprisonment, Evalle wanted nothing more than to bond with her Skinwalker mate to share their lives and energy. She cheated death upon escape only to discover she's lost he ability to shift into a gryphon and her powers are failing. Opening a connection with her Storm could destroy his as she discovers her body is going through new insurmountable changes. When she's offered a chance to bring her gryphon back, Evalle jumps at it, determined to heal herself and save her life with Storm. Too late, Storm realizes he's made a deadly mistake by bringing his mate with him.


Evalle and Storm’s relationship has never been what anyone could define as normal.  It never will be, but it works for them, little gargoyle and all.  These two are a couple of my favorite characters in the Belador world and it was so much fun to read a story dedicated to them.

We get to see more intimate moments that show how Storm and Evalle’s relationship has progressed.  This was also the perfect time to share their story before hard hitting Belador issues assail us in the future with human/Belador exposure and supernaturals screwing up in Atlanta, Georgia.

You will not want to miss how Evalle deals with the aftermath of her kidnapping and how Storm deals with her.  This is a fun story that highlights the evolution of Storm and Evalle’s relationship and provides us with Storm’s family background.  It will be interesting to see if Storm’s family is pulled into future conflicts with the Beladors.

I received an ARC for an honest review.
