Publisher's Summary

I knew the sins of my past would call to collect what was left of my soul. If I'd known the price I'd pay, I would've sacrificed more to stay hidden from the magic.

In the middle of Wyoming - away from the abnormals of the world - I thought I was free and clear. I started a new life. Found a love I'd never known in a husband, and a son who was my everything.

And in a blinding instant, that life was stolen from me.

The rage of a grieving mother is an ugly beast. More so when she has the skills and killer instinct to back up the wrath and the knowledge that an accident was anything but.

Once more, I will pick up my guns. This time to hunt those who took my husband's and son's lives.

Let them see the assassin, trained to kill abnormals and stalk the shadows again.

Let them see the Phoenix rise from the fragments of a broken life as she burns with a fury that cannot be contained.

Let the killing games begin.

    Story
    "Another hit for Shannon Mayer. Love it!"

    The story starts with action and vengeance and only slows for Nix’s recuperation. I admire Nix. As an assassin, she leaves no bodies behind to come at her back. (This is a pet peeve of mine. Many protagonists in a show of mercy, leave behind an adversary who only come back later for a kill.)

    Nix is human sharing a world that is inhabited by abnormals. I have become jaded thinking that as a human she would be vulnerable against a paranormal. Well Nix has skills, which paranormals fear She was trained at the age of 6 to be an assassin by her father and those were skills she still has.

    In her quest for vengeance, she discovered the true identity of the man she loved who was the father of her boy and that she was not quite as hidden as she thought. Now she trying to find who put the hit on her family, the mob or Lucan Romano, her father. Her father who made a deal with the demon Bazixal for power and money all his life.

    With her girls on her hips, guns Dinah and Eleanor, Abe her dog and an unlikely ally, Simon she travels to Las Vegas to kill the head of the most powerful organization, her father.
    She meets old friends, and former lovers, many who are now traitors. Action, action, action. It is a fast paced enjoyable book with the fault… a cliff hanger.

    Story
    "5 Stars!"

    This is one of the best books I've read and listened to all year. Khristine Hvam is so very talented and my favorite narrator! Shannon Mayer has outdone herself with this book! If I could give it 10 stars I would. I urge you to buy the Audible book and the Kindle version! You won't be disappointed at all.
    Looking forward to listening to Blood of a Phoenix. I've read it and it's even better than this one.

    Story
    "Fury of a woman scorned"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, It is non stop action w/o the sappy romance


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nix-she's badass, Simon-he sneaky, Abe-he's a dog, what's not to love?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    would be a spoiler


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When she has to let Bear go.


    Any additional comments?

    I think in the world of Shannon Mayer I'm a rookie. I've read and adored the Rylee Adamson series. I've read the Venom books and liked the world/story better than the MC. This was a whole new experience. The beginning is tragic and as a mom some parts were extremely hard especially at the time she looses her boys. I've read some of the reviews that readers had a hard time connecting to Nix or liking her and I can see that BUT if you think about it, it would be hard to connect with someone who only ever loved or was loved by two people that were tragically taken from her. I found by the last 1/4 of the book her character was making a shift that I think will make it easier for people to connect with her. I loved everything about the book and holy cliffhanger batman.....have preordered #2.

    Khristine Hvam is one of my all-time favorites and does a fantastic job with the characters.

    Story
    "Bad narration. Nasally voice."

    I just started listening to this book and it's already grinding my nerves. It got good stars so I got it with my newly obtained credit after careful consideration of others. However, what the preview left out was the nasal-y tone of the the narrator. It's really bad and makes it really hard to listen to. The story so far is already predictable and I already know what will happen. I probably would've enjoyed the book if I was reading it myself but that nasal voice is too much. It's like she is plugging her nose while reading.
