Blurb: When Xavier Angel meets his mate, he is ecstatic, but the closer he gets to Liam, the more ill he becomes. When this mysterious illness threatens Xavier’s life, causing him to almost die, Liam discovers what is wrong with Xavier. His heart breaks knowing he will never be able to have his mate—because to do so would cost Xavier his life.

To try to stop this unknown force keeping them apart, Xavier and Liam must travel back to Xavier’s birth pack in search of a wicked omega who may be the only one able to help them. But their only chance at happiness and love turns out to be the very thing that caused it.

Xavier will do whatever he has to in order to claim his man, but will it be enough? Will they be able to stop this great evil and save Xavier?

Or will their love be the one thing that kills them?


Review: I love this series, and I especially loved this installment. The main reason being that I totally needed the addition and resolution of the family drama for Storm and Aaron on top of the craziness surround the mating fiasco of Liam and Xavier. Aaron and Storm are brothers who had a rocky start, but we now get the whys and it was a doozy.

In the last book, I was all about assuming that Xavier was shunning his mate because he was a created and evil demon before being turned into part angel and pure of heart. He had no say in his past, and though I understood Xavier’s issue, I was still saddened by the hurt he inflicted on Liam. Until we find out that he is not intentionally shunning his mate, but that a darker force is in play and unless they can find the culprit, Liam and Xavier have no chance of a future, and Xavier could die, too.

With Maggie Walsh you never know what direction her stories going to diverge from what you think will happen. It has been that way from the first book I’ve ever read by her. These stories are always very sexy, mysterious, and fast paranormal reads. Books that I know I will enjoy and never hesitate to pick up. The blurbs barely give you a hint of the surprises you’ll find inside, and for that reason alone, I highly recommend this book, and this Angel Pack series.

Overall Impression: I loved it!

*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
