It’s another bright and sunny day in Aurora, Michigan…when a mysterious building collapse kills sixty-seven people.
It's been four months since the devastating battle on Primrose Avenue, and DSI still has its hands full. The local ICM chapter is now unstable, no leader to corral its members. The werewolves are moving in strange ways, like they're keeping secrets. And there's a traitor inside DSI, waiting to strike again.
Cal Kinsey and his team, now back on the job, are desperately searching for the answers they need to restore balance in the supernatural community. But so far, they've had little success.
Then, to make matters exponentially worse, a major Aurora convention center collapses without warning, killing dozens and injuring hundreds more. With all signs pointing to a supernatural terrorist attack, Cal and his team are thrust back into the danger zone once again. And this time, they're playing for keeps.
Because according to the riddle-filled letter that arrives on DSI’s doorstep, addressed to one Captain Nicholas Riker...the destruction of Aurora is only just beginning.
I received this book as an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Magic and mayhem are loose again and it's Cal's job to figure out the who, where, and why of it all. The only problem is that the longer he takes to find answers, the more people might end up dying in the end. It's a race against time and Cal's pretty sure he lost the moment the first building exploded.
This book was the best in the series so far. It had all the things I really liked in the previous books--the brilliant characterizations, an engaging plot, and wonderful world building--and it somehow also managed to feel unique and new at the same time. I was hooked from the first page until the end and am absolutely looking forward to the next book in the series.
The only issue I had with the story was a stylistic choice Coulson made. At the beginning of every chapter was a one sentence explanation telling the reader exactly what was going to happen later on in that chapter. It did make for good foreshadowing, but it also lessened some of the level of drama.
I'm really enjoying reading this series and I absolutely recommend this book and the entire series. The characters, the plot, and the world building are all phenomenal. I didn't really like the one sentence explanations at the start of every chapter, but it didn't really hurt my overall enjoyment of the book.
