When Bryn’s loyalty to her own people is tested, the decision she makes will change the course of her life forever…Truth be told, Bryn isn’t really sure where her loyalties lie. Of one thing she’s sure, though, is that her fraternal twin sister, Jolie, who also happens to be the Queen of the Underworld, should be her sworn enemy. But after spending months with Jolie, Bryn can’t deny the fact that she genuinely cares for her sister, much though she shouldn’t. If it weren’t maddening enough that her relationship with Jolie is anything but black and white, then there’s Sinjin.Cool, calm and calculated, Sinjin Sinclair is everything Bryn imagines she should find reprehensible in a man. First of all, he’s a master vampire and all vampires, in Bryn’s mind, are nothing more than bloodsucking parasites. Secondly, his unflagging cockiness when paired with his boyish charm is enough to irritate any sensible woman. Mostly, though, it’s Sinjin’s unapologetic sexuality that Bryn finds extremely off-putting…and, well, somewhat entertaining and possibly even exhilarating...After Bryn purposely botches her leader’s attack on Jolie, Bryn finds herself returned to her old life, a life she thought she’d wanted. But the old adage, “be careful what you wish for because you might get it,” will take on new meaning once she finds herself playing hostage to her own people.

My take on this book:: CAUTION!! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ ANY SPOILERS PLEASE STOP READING NOW! IF YOU DO WANT TO READ SPOILERS CONTINUE ON! I WON’T ALWAYS HAVE SPOILERS THOUGH!!

H.P. Mallory has woven another great story. I know that I said in my “I am currently reading….” post that I wasn’t a fan of Bryn but I might actually be mistaken. In this story I have fallen in love with the character even more than I did in the first book. This book takes place where the first one left off with. Which was at Jolie’s wedding to Rand and Luce telling Bryn that they are going to attack.

This book is fast-paced and the rest of it takes place three weeks after the wedding and something totally cute happening for Jolie. After Bryn gets back to Montana, and with her tribe, what she did with Jolie really upset Luce so much that he took away her status and put her into a class that she would have never thought was possible for her to ever become something that…low for her.

All I have to say is that I feel bad for Bryn and that no one should have to go through with that. But then again Sinjin being the total gentleman he is at the end of the book is quite possibly one of the main reasons why he is my second best male character from Mallory’s Jolie/Bryn series. The first one would have to be Rand. Then for my best female character’s its Jolie and then Bryn. I will have to give this book a five stars. Sure I didn’t like what happened to Bryn but after talking it over with my mom I know that stuff like that happens and I believe that H.P. Mallory is just building up the character.

This Review was previously posted on my blogspot site which I will be closing soon.

About H.P. Mallory

ABOUT HP taken from her website

Hi Everyone and thanks for finding me online!

I’m a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author which means I’ve been able to cross off a couple of line items on my bucket list! Woo Hoo!

I’ve always been a huge fan of the paranormal, especially anything to do with spirits and hauntings.. I get super excited whenever they have those Twilight Zone Marathon days and anything ghost or vampire related will always get my attention. Have a cool ghost story? Contact me and tell me all about it!

My interests are varied but aside from writing, I’m most excited about traveling. I love learning about new places (especially haunted ones) and I’m a huge history buff.

I live in Southern California with my son, an enormous St. Bernard and a really cranky cat.
