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.

Curse you Shannon! This one broke me!!!

I thought my mind was left reeling after the last book. I didn't think anything could top that in the deception arena but boy I was wrong! I didn't see any of this coming! One know out punch after another! Then my heart breaks into a million pieces! Curse you Shannon Mayer! Curse you! This one was beyond epic! Thank goodness you did not end the series here (so you are slightly forgiven!)!

OMG (I don't use that often)

No spoilers, but the scene with Zam, Steve, and Darcy was great! I loved it! Once again it was full of action and surprises. I can't get enough of Zam and Lila. Lauren Fortgang does such a great job narrating. She makes it enjoyable to listen.

One last battle

2019 review: This book was everything I could have hoped for in an ending for Zamira’s story. She is truly my favorite character of any story that I have read. This book had so many twists and turns that I absolutely did not see coming and I loved every heart-pounding second of it.Shannon Mayer is an amazing author and absolutely killed it with this series!

2021 review: Zam, Maks and Lila are back and preparing to face the 3 big power houses. Easy right? Not so much. The trio is thrown in to more unpleasant meetings and battles that they didn’t even intend to have. I loved every single second of this series and while it didn’t end with a traditional HEA it ended the best way for our heroes and allowed for another adventure to be born!

Lauren outdid herself with the narration. She brought so much life to these characters and it make the series that much better.

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.

KAZ🇬🇧😃 Umm 🤔 not sure if i like it!! 😲

After hearing all the other book's in this series this wasn't very good in my opinion why? because the storyline was just a bit to far fetched for me to get into sad to say 😭 Zam is the main character whose a house cat when she shift's but now apparently she's also a jungle cat & a dragon I mean C'MON wtf!! Then Lyra a tiny dragon can fit on her shoulder but also can lift her up HOW? Gutted I paid for this 1 wish I'd left it at the last book Ohh well good narration great character's just lame storyline actually felt cheated by how bad this was after the last books 😭👎

A bittersweet culmination

There's more to Zam's story to come, but a lot of the beginning stories tie up in this book. It is good to see the growth our characters have had as well as the closure that this installment offers

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 .
