As Anya matured into a woman, she and Del-Rey grew close…but then he broke his promise and killed her father. Now she must deal with her animalistic desire for the one who betrayed her.

This is one of the best books in the series. I actually cried reading this book, not only because of misunderstanding between Del-Ray and Anya but between Anya and her friends and the breeds she rescued. Not a book you can put down.
This book in the series was by far was the most emotional and well developed love stories of the breeds stories. I felt and believed the emotion and agony of the main characters. Some of Leigh's books just contain filler between the sex scenes, this one was far better written and the erotic scenes were an evolution of the story and as always the love scenes are well written although very graphic, for those who enjoy the more subtle romance stories, this may not be your cup of tea.
Yes. I like the story. It had it all. Concern for family, concern for the mission, concern for each other even though they tried to hide it.
The most memorable was the end. A Breed finally recognized the worth of his mate and went on his knees for her. I get that the Breeds are dominant, but it gets boring time after time how they show their dominence.
This time, nothing. Since mostly everyone was foreign the accents and the voices were different from all the other previous breeds.
A love unrecognized, will it have time to devlope or will death win in the end?
I think that this story was nicely devloped and the story line was not rushed.
I was completely annoyed to have to listen to the heroine's pseudo-Russian accent for the entire length of the story only to discover at the end, via an obvious clue, that the heroine was supposed to be speaking American English. Grrr. Did the narrator not read the book before the performance? I also found the narrator's delivery painfully overly dramatic. Perhaps this story is a better read than a listen. This is one book in a long, complicated series, so don't even think about picking this one up until you've read or listened to several of the earliest books. Overall, I just found the story line tedious. The hero was beyond stupid with some of his decisions. I could have forgiven that if he were a little quicker on the uptake with fixing his poor choices, but then there wouldn't have been much of a book. The technical infrastructure between all the breeds, societies, political factions, etc., is getting quite complex. My interest in it was waned and my patience is shot. I am completely flummoxed by the overwhelmingly good reviews; I don't normally disagree so assertively with the masses. But disagree I do!
(For those interested, the American English clue came when the heroine, in a completely out of context moment, ponders why her father who raised her chooses to speak English with a Russian accent when she knows he speaks perfectly good unaccented American English. I took that to mean she herself must choose to speak unaccented American English, otherwise she would not be pondering that.)
