Publisher's Summary

War has erupted among the five Old Races, and Margrit is responsible for the death that caused it. Now New York City's most unusual lawyer finds herself facing her toughest negotiation yet. And with her gargoyle lover, Alban, taken prisoner, Margrit's only allies - a dragon bitter about his fall, a vampire determined to hold his standing at any cost, and a mortal detective with no idea what he's up against - have demands of their own.

Determined to rescue Alban and torn between conflicting loyalties as the battle seeps into the human world, Margrit soon realizes the only way out is through the fire....

Loved the series!

Wow! What a wonderful series! And Eve Bianco was a great narrator! Really made the excellent writing of C.E. Murphy come alive. Her accents stayed consistent for each character and added so much to the readings! Can't wait to read her other series but unfortunately Ms. Bianco doesn't narrate this one. Hope the other narrator is as good! Thank you for making my listening pleasure a great experience!

Sorry to leave the setting.

The final book in the Negotiator trilogy by C.E. Murphy, and after three books I have to say that I'm a little sad to leave the setting. I hope the author returns to this setting one day, as there are obviously so many more stories to tell.

I'd love to know what happened to Chelsea, where the relationship between Nick and Grace will go, and what, of course, will happen to Alban and Grit.

Beautifully done, and with a narrator who pulled me in, refusing to let go.

Final book of the series - wonderful!

Just love the book - the whole series too.
Great narrator - worth the cost of the book - the ebook and the audible - all of which I have - now I can read or hear the book/series anywhere!

Great ending to a wonderful story

Thoroughly enjoyed the action packed ending to a wonderful and beautifully written story. I will recommend this one to the whole crew! Eve Bianco was a master with all the character voices.

Great series

This series and characters are so good. I hate that this ended it. I want to know more. The ending of this was heart breaking. That after hundreds of years being together that something finally came to light and broke them apart. I want to know if they find a way back together. If they can forgive and understand. And what happens when "THEY" awaken.
