When secrets and betrayals abound, where will her devotion lie?
With powerful abilities gained from the Ang'dora and Tristan back by her side, Alexis thinks she's ready for the next challenge - protecting her son from what appears to be the inevitable. But she has so much to learn about her powers, her new world, and the people in it. Nothing is what it seems to be on the surface, including the Amadis.
Power-hungry politicians comprise the council and make impossible demands. A traitor lurks among them all, inciting trouble that could destroy the Amadis and, ultimately, humanity. The Daemoni wreak havoc in the human world, with the ultimatum that they'll continue attacking innocents until Alexis and Tristan are expelled from the Amadis' protection. The couple's own society begins to shut them out. But that's not all.
Someone's keeping a secret. A big one. Faith and hope in Alexis and Tristan will be restored if she can uncover the truth in time.
But the search for answers leads only to the discovery of more betrayals by those closest to Alexis. Her devotion is put to the test - devotion to her husband, to her family, to her people and to her beliefs - leaving her to question whom she's fighting for and why she should even bother. But if she won't fight... who will?

Storyline kept you guessing who the traitor was right up to the end.
The trial at the end
Devotion continues us on the path of Alexis and Tristan. Alexis has started to practice her newly developed skills since the Ang'Dora and trying to come to terms with the stuff Tristan was put through during his disappearance. There is a traitor among them and it has been challenging to figure out just who is behind the treachery. The council is supposed to support the women but has left them reliant on each other.
This book is full of twists and turns leaving you at the end with a cliff-hanger that you are not expecting.
For the most part, I really enjoy this narrator. The one issue I have is that Alexis is now and adult and still at times sounds like a petulant brat.
