At the end of Bite the Bullet, the second book in the Crimson Moon series, we left Hunter fighting the demon virus. Other than Hunter, all other carriers of the virus have been eliminated or so we believe.
Four weeks have passed since the shadow wolves and werewolves joined forces to defeat the Vampires at the UCE (United Council of Entities) gathering. And for the first time in very long memory, all factions including the Fae, the Dragons, etc, were shown just what the Vampires have been up to and how that will affect each of their own groups.
The alliance between the werewolves and shadow wolves is uneasy and thing aren’t made any easier when the Alpha’s of both have their sights firmly set on the same woman, Sasha. Hunter is taking double doses of the anti virus medication Sasha took to try and control the virus but it just doesn’t seem to work. Both Hunter and Sasha are beginning to question their relationship and Sasha is also living with the fear that she might have to put Max down.
A dead body is found in an alley and suddenly Sasha has to face the fact that she might have left it to late to destroy Hunter and that innocents will die because of her. Add to the mix the return of the werewolf Alpha Shogun and you know things are going to get dicey. Sasha has chemistry with Shogun but she clings to the hope that she can save Max through Shogun.
Another dead body is found and time is running out as the supernatural authorities close in on Hunter. With the vampires hell-bent on creating a situation where the council will have no choice but to execute Max, Sasha now needs her cool logic more than ever. Factions of the council such as the Fae no longer have the opportunity to be neutral and have to make a decision which side they will support.
Seriously this is the best series I have started for a long time. I was captured from the first words in Bad Blood and I found myself through out the day at work wondering what was going to happen next. The way Ms Banks writes left me hanging on the edge of my seat countless times. The way the action keeps coming and the twists when you least expect them keep you coming back for more. Ms Banks CAN I PLEASE HAVE SOME MORE?
Yes You Can! Next in the series is Cursed to Death coming out September 29, 2009
