Morgan Montgomery is waiting to die. Branded a traitor by her tribe, the Ikati shape-shifter has no hope for mercy - until Jenna, the Ikati’s newly crowned queen and Morgan’s former ally, offers one last chance for redemption. Morgan must infiltrate the Rome headquarters of the Expurgari, the Ikati’s ancient enemy, to destroy them once and for all. The beautiful renegade has just a fortnight to complete her mission or forfeit her life. But she does not travel alone.…
Xander Luna is a trained assassin and the Ikati’s most feared enforcer, famed for his swift brutality and stony heart. Fiercely loyal, he is prepared to hate the traitor under his watch - until they come face-to-face. For Morgan Montgomery arouses something unexpected inside of him - something that threatens everything he believes in and the fate of the tribe itself: a love as powerful and passionate as it is forbidden.

I really enjoyed this book and could have read it a lot faster if I hadn't just started a new job at the same time I received it! This was Morgan's book with her love interest being the Ikati Assassin Xander. It was great getting into her head and seeing how much she genuinely regretted what she did and maybe even craved home a little after trying to escape it for so long. There were also a couple of pretty big twists regarding the Expurgari that I won't reveal but that did take me by surprise at the end!
Xander was easy to like as well, he really had a rough childhood, much rougher then Morgan but he was a good person despite his own poor opinion of himself. I loved these two together as in a lot of ways they can understand each other better then just about anyone else.
I loved meeting the new colony as well and seeing how different they were from the colonies we know. I can see a future story involving Eliana and Demetrius being developed with how the book ended. I'd love to see those two end up together and I think that her fathers research may be important to the Ikati race and be life-changing for them so I'd like to see how it plays out and whether their colony will now make contact with the other colonies, reach out to them and form an alliance of sorts. I'd quite like that, they could come out of the tunnels and live above ground like the other colonies. I also want to see when Jenna (from the first book) is gonna start changing laws to improve the existence of female Ikati and to allow greater freedom in the tribe. I do hope that Morgan returns to the tribe eventually. I think she will miss them and that once she's travelled she may yearn to return home. Espeacially after what she learned. Can't wait for the next book!
Ok, I begin hearing this book and stopped after 3 minuts. the narrator is horrible, I had stop other books narrated by this lady after 3 minuts. I cannot tolarate her slow and monotonous voice. It is like hearing bla, bla, bla blaba. I dont know who in your company fecided she was a good narrator about the book and the story I will read it and the I can decide about the story. you audiobooks or whoever the company is that hire this lady ARe ruining good books with this voice. it is not the person I am judging IT IS THE VOICE!!

Yes Morgan being a real traitor.
Zander, the ultimate alpha male.
The narrator that did bk one of the series Shadows Edge. Justine Eyre. She did a very good job and changing her voice for the different characters and her accent was perfect!!
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
YES - YES AND YES, I do really love the "Night Prowler" Series and I do recommend this audiobook to a friend because it kept your attention form the first word to the last of the book. I can hardly wait for the next book to come out.
My favorite character was "Zander" because true to character, he looses his temper and then can't quite figure out how to get his foot out of his mouth.I
Loved the performance by Angela Dawe.
This book made me laugh a lot .
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This book had a really slow start to be a sequel. It was good, don't get me wrong, but I like a bit more... something the first half of the story. I think I skipped chapter 3-8. Nothing really happened... just some angst moments and slow build up until they got Italy. After Italy the plot really shift gears and picks up dramatically. The story gets really good after that. A totally 3 stars for the storyline after halfway through... but overall, because of the long wait for the story to pick up... I think overall I just can't recommend this book, unless you already have book 1.
Narration was not right for this book. Angela Dawe is a horrible narrator for a shifter book. She is more of a Regency Romance narrator. The constant stopping and pausing with her inflections to build drama, just doesn't work for this book, or any shifter book. It was like a Regency Shifter narration, slowed down. Just didn't work at all.
A credit or sale if you have book 1...
A very dark & morose story with a couple love interests thrown in for good measure. This story has some fight scenes and some characters die. Good character, storyline, & plot development.
I actually enjoyed it as much as the first book in this series. Very well written and performed. I actually felt the joy, torment and exhilaration of the characters.
I highly recommend this and I can't waiting to begin listening to the next book in this series.
No, the story was okay, the first book as better, but I found the narration annoying
Everything was tied up nicely, it was pretty sappy/cheesy, but a happy ending and that's important to me.
No, I've returned an audiobook after about 10 minutes of listening to her performance and didn't pay close enough attention to realize she was the narrator for this book as well and I feel like I was listening to a female version of William Shatner with her very dramatic reading of each and every sentence. And her pronunciation! Ugh! Alejandro is pronounced "Ollie-Jon"Dro," I mean, come on! It really bugged me, if you couldn't tell.
I loved the first book but this one has a different narrator and she announces every line with a hanging syllable at the end. Very annoying. I thought it was an artificial voice in the beginning
Books speak to the soul.
My review of book one said that some people thought this series resembled J.R. Ward's in it's darkness but I didn't see it...well book two brought out that darkness of the characters. It is still so exciting that I couldn't stop listening. This book takes place under the Vatican and also the catacombs in France. There is a lot of mythology & mystery. So much excitement that I couldn't wait to start book three. You won't be disappointed.
