Some nights never end.
Some desires never die. . . .

She ventures where no one else dares—into realms of peril and pleasure. But will this next journey be her last?

Shape-shifting werewolf and vampire Riley Jenson is through with death–causing it, solving it, surviving it. Her soul mate, Kye Murphy, is dead–and at Riley’s own hands. Not even the seductive embrace of her vampire lover, Quinn, can fully ease her mind, for she has begun questioning everything that makes her Riley–including her job at the Directorate.

Now, the ritualistically slain bodies of ex-cons have started turning up. Reluctantly, Riley takes the case, but something even worse is waiting in the wings. For a vicious enemy from her past is determined to strip Riley of everything that gives her life any meaning: her lover, her brother–and even her own identity. Can Riley survive this ultimate assault? All she knows is, she must fight one last time to find answers, before everything goes dark forever…

What I thought:

This took me some time to finish.  It was a bittersweet ending to a favorite series.  While the story was a great one, well written, just the idea alone that it was the very last made me hesitant to read it.  I am just not ready to say goodbye to one of my favorite series.  But, alas, I have finished it and I loved it.

While the rest of the books in this series have been case oriented for the most part, this one is different.  This focuses more on Riley and the past that haunts both her and her twin.  We didn't get to see much of our favorite characters who stand just outside of the limelight.  I'm sad we didn't get to see them much (Cole, Sal... etc) and they were missed.

So far, this has been the only series I have picked up by the author, but I am looking forward to reading some of her other books out there.  I recommend this author and this series.

I gave it 4 stars!

I read Destiny Kills a few weeks ago and liked it. One day I'll get around to reading the first book in this series!

It is a great series, but just fair warning, the first book didn't wow me. I almost didn't read the next... but I'm glad I did!

I really like the author too, but I recall not finishing this series..I only remember the first book, somehow couldn't pick up the next.
Will look for it now.

Deepali, I was on the fence after the first and the second was the one that hooked me. Well, the continuing plot that played out in the second anyway.
