Actions have consequences—a lesson Scarlett Bernard is learning the hard way. As a “null,” Scarlett has always been able to negate the powers of the supernatural beings that surround her. But now her reckless decision to permanently change Eli from a werewolf to a human has left the Los Angeles werewolf pack in shambles, and upset the balance of power among the city’s supernatural factions. To make matters worse, Scarlett’s employers discover that a newly changed werewolf is running amok in the city. To catch the rogue werewolf, Scarlett will need help from both Eli and Detective Jesse Cruz of the LAPD…a situation that will force her to finally choose between them.
However, Scarlett and her friends aren’t the only ones on the hunt—someone else is chasing the wolf. Someone with no reservations about collateral damage. Now Scarlett and her allies must stop both the rogue wolf and the deadly hunter before the full moon rises and all hell breaks loose.
Filled with the same suspense and wit readers loved in Dead Spots and Trail of Dead, this may be Scarlett Bernard’s most harrowing adventure yet....

good set up an awesome characters that have a honest an real feel about then.....from the moment jessie sees the "demon dog" till the end this one had me laughing out loud while still on my edge of my seat waiting to see how it all ends. i read / listen to ALOT of books an usual see the twists an turns long before they play out...which is disappointing sometimes...one thing i can say for this whole series so far....i can never truly figure out all the little details and endings. this writer has a way of truly catching me off guard an keeping a few aces up her sleeves right up until the end. while never making the plot muddy or the characters wish washy ....if anything one if her best tricks is making then so 3d and human like that it defies the cliches ...the standerd roles...the tired out concepts an the normal play ups.... her books are not what had became the normal cookie cutter worlds (ya maybe some are a new shape but in the end the little new details still are a cookie cutter ) her worlds an the people in them shift ...grow and become truly effected by the drama an trauma they endure...they just dont go through hell an then poof next chaper next story they are all good an still the exact character they were in the first book. no instead like what real people would do they slowly learn from...grow bitter because or struggle to maintain them selves after so many life altering events happens to them...awesome writing more so when considering how relatively new this writer is to the scene!!!!!
No, sadly it is one more in a sea of the same basic story about an annoying girl falling into one thing after another. Why are all of the main female characters so irritating?
No I dont think so, especially if they are all like this series!
Loved it...book 2 was little weak, books 1 & 3 were great! I can wait to listen to Melissa's book(s) again! Amy's narration was 1 of the best I heard so far!
I like Amy's narration and the characters just become real. We know that its all fantasy, witches and werewolves and vampires, but this book makes them appear to be part of the reader's life. You become immersed in the story.
When Eli reappears and he and Scarlett connect.
Scarlett was wonderful. She does a great job with Jesse, too.
I just love this series. Can't wait for Book 4.
I really liked this series. I'm glad that she ended up with who she did and I'm glad that she finally learned her worth. All I'm going to say. This series is worth the read. Or listen in my case. 😆
I slogged through 2 and half books of this series with this narrator and couldn't stand it anymore. I deleted it and contacted Amazon to keep it from downloading again. Professional it is not. It was just like listening to a cartoon. She might as well have said "hey Yogi, look! a pic a nic basket!" Stereotyping the characters was rampant. Hispanic, Black, older people, teenagers, teen's mom, you name the character and the narrator played them to the lowest common denominator. Well, she didn't make the vampire sound like 'The Count' but she did make the werewolf gravelly voiced. Is there an over acting anonymous? There should be. It would throw me right out of the story, cringing. I didn't get any of that while I was reading by myself, I liked the story just fine.
"Really good urban fantasy"
It took me a while to warm up to Scarlett in the first book in the series, Dead Spots, because her character was so jaded. However by this third book she's developed into not only likeable but really "laugh out loud" funny with her wicked sense of humour. I can usually tell when the writing is good because I'm engaged throughout the book and don't really notice "the writing". This was certainly true for all of the books in this series. I feel I've found another favourite urban fantasy author and I'll be looking forward to the next book. I would recommend it to anyone who likes this sort of genre. If you're looking for romance it's there, with an interesting love triangle for Scarlett. However the "love scenes" aren't anything like as "detailed" as many paranormal romance or some other urban fantasy books. The focus is definitely more on the "action" and this has a complicated enough plot to keep you guessing. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed it. Again, I wasn't sure initially about the narrator as I found her voice a bit "whiny" at times. However, now I'm used to her voice I think she did a great job that definitely enhanced the story.
The last in the series what a shame. The whole trilogy was a pleasure to listen to, story narration and characters were first class. Highly recommended. I really could find little fault as each book really fleshed out the people and the stories moved along at a good pace.
