Blurb: Thanks to the mindspeech lessons she’s receiving from the black dragon, Lily is temporarily benched from Unit Twelve—until her brain acclimates and the risk of total burnout passes. At least she has her new husband, lupi Rule Turner, to keep her occupied.
But when her mentor calls in a favor and sends Lily to a murder scene, she’s suddenly back on active status—despite the hallucinations she can’t keep at bay. With one touch, Lily knows the man was killed by magic, but her senses don’t warn her how far the conspiracy goes…
A shadowy force within the government wants to take Unit Twelve down, and they don’t mind killing to achieve their goal. With none of her usual resources, Lily is up against impossible odds—because with her mind in disarray, she can’t trust anything she sees.
Review: I have always really enjoyed this series and this book is no exception. I can say that I don’t think that I loved it quite as much as I have previous books.
For me, this seemed to kind of drag on without a whole lot of anything specific going on. There wasn’t quite the amount of flashy, showy magic in this one as we’ve gotten in many of the other books. I was also hoping to see a lot more of Lily’s character than we did, especially after reading the blurb, which made it seem like the focus of this book was more on her.
I did still really enjoy this, but it felt kind of like a background set up book, basically putting certain things in place so that they could be brought out in a later book.
