Publisher's Summary

Three against one is not the best odds in any fight. But does she dare gamble on making an enemy into an ally? 

There might be no rest for the wicked, but there’s no rest for the exhausted, either. We’ve barely survived one fight, and we have another blade at our throats. Strike that. Three blades. 

I can see only one possible chance at surviving the three evils we face, no matter how much I might hate it. I have to make my peace with one of them and pray that they will help me take down the other two, before we turn on each other. 

The only question is, who do I trust not only my life but with the life of my family? Because, I have all those I love the best at my side. Maks. Lila. Bryce. Or do I leave them and take the danger with me to face it all on my own? 

One thing is for sure - even if I go down, it’ll be swinging with everything I have.

The final installment in the USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling epic urban fantasy that fans have been waiting for! 

If you like KF Breene, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Faith Hunter, Jaymin Eve, Kelley Armstrong, Kim Harrison, or Shayne Silvers, you won’t want to miss Mayer’s books!

No spoilers

What a good book. The stories Mayer puts to paper is amazing. Lots of action some humor, romance, suspense with lot's of twist and turns. Roll all that up in an amazing world and you have a Shannon Mayer book you don't want to put down. To top it all off you get a truly masterful performance read by Lauren Fortgang who I highly recommend. Don't miss out on any of Mayer or Fortgang work you won't be sorry. This is NOT a standalone book. Can't wait to see what comes next by Mayer.

Perfect.

The perfect end to a series, but with the promise of so much more to come. I can't wait for the continuation and new adventures.

So....Very....GOOD!

Mayor and Fortgang have knocked it out of the park again. This book ends one adventure and begins another. The last few chapters blew me away! I LOVE this series.

Blown away!!


This book was amazing and it had me on the edge of my seat. Lauren Fortgang, the narrator does a fabulous job!! She truly brings the characters to life.
It was full of action, heartache, badass fighting, and jaw dropping discoveries. So much happened, that I’m still recovering from a book hangover. It is so good and I’m sure you will love it. Trust me, you will love this trio. They will work themselves into your heart and you will find loving some of the other characters as well. MUST listen!

What an ending!!

First off I have to say
It’s. About. Time. Steve. Gets. Knocked. Down!!!!
That had to be the best part of the entire book! Not really, but man was I squealing.

The book continues with Zam, Lila, and Max having to free the emporer in order to get the rest of the gems and take on the “world ending” falak. You may say you’re used to Mayer’s twists and turns in her stories but there is just NO way you could have seen what came to pass, just no way. We spend the whole series guessing who the bad guy is, each book points us in a new directions and a new way of think but Who would have thought the true evil was so close at heart and in plain sight all along.
I love how the book wrapped up but I am very glad there’s another installment!

I think this is the best book of the series so far

A lot of threads, some coming together, but some still in question. Shannon’s stories are well made, and this is no exception. Just when I start thinking I know where things are going, something flips out from under me and the pieces are now fitting in a different way.
“Life is short. Let’s laugh at the a**holes” has got to be the best quote of the whole series!
Just over 2 hours left in the reading and I have a sneaking suspicion about where she’s going to find one of the stones, but I won’t spoil anything. Now I can’t stop… I have to see if I’m right… or is this just one more twist that I’m thinking is right and will turn out to be a puzzle piece fitting in the wrong spot again?
About 20 minutes later, my suspicion is confirmed… WOOT! Still more twists followed after that though. I must admit I’d be curious to see the extent of the Emperor’s family tree. I think this is the best book of the series so far.

An Epic Must-Read Adventure!

The books leading up to this have been nothing shy of action-packed; yet this one surpassed them all. This is by far my favorite book of this entire series; and it’s not without heartache, trials, and darkness that every character seems to face in this book. There are many unforeseen twists that make the reader stop and do a double-take; though not so many that it makes your head spin and distracts from the storyline. Zam’s whole pack (plus some) all come together to be torn apart and brought back together again. We’ve seen traitors before in this series; yet NO ONE is as they seem. We FINALLY see worthless Steve’s comeuppance and it’s absolutely fantastic. Lauren Fortgang truly does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. I don't know if I would enjoy this series as much as an ebook.

The plot is so intricate that Mayer truly is a master at weaving an epic tale. The attention to details given in previous books written years prior is so acute that it’s really set the standard for me, and I find myself shying away from authors I would typically enjoy because they’re just not at the same level as Mayer. I still absolutely love the way she finalizes each chapter. It’s like every one of them is punctuated with an exclamation point perfectly. Whether it’s foreshadowing of what’s to come, or the unveiling of a major revelation, it’s just fascinating to notice as a reader. And truly every character is different which makes it so much more enjoyable. So many other authors get caught in a rut and characters bleed together at one point or another, but not Mayer. She never takes the easy road. Just when you think they’re going to catch a break and it’ll be smooth sailing, she presents a new challenge for them to overcome at overwhelming odds. And she won’t scapegoat the solution either. The way they succeed can be at a great cost, utter brilliance, or pure dumb luck – you never really know with her writing.

In short, get this one added to your collection ASAP because you’ll be immediately hooked like the rest of her fandom!

Zam is the embodiment of strength

This book came with a bunch of surprises. I’m honestly still kind of baffled and need to process the depths of deceit the group had faced. Zamira was a strong badass, as always and yet her biggest strength is her heart and the love she holds for her family. Which in itself is a perfect moral of the story to me. Still one of my favorite series and I have read the first three books already many times; so I am sure I will revisit this one in the near future as well. But for now, let’s see what Zam could get into next.

Love this series

As I thought this was going to be the final book in the Desert Cursed Series I was sad for it to come to an end.
Reading reviews i am not the only one who thought it was the final book but Shannon is wonderful and gave us another book.
You can never have enough Zam , Lila and Maks and this book is the best of the series so far lots of twists and turns and and outcome I never expected .
