Peace is just a breath between battles for Mira. Hardened by slavery and war, she longs for the simpler life, knowing that it might never be hers to enjoy. There is always another battle waiting to be fought, another foe on the horizon. Peace between humans, vampires, and otherkin may be nothing more than a dream, but Mira holds out hope.
It is during this brief respite that Mira is gifted one of her greatest weapons. Though it brings with it memories of a time when she was not so jaded, it also comes with a reminder of terrible pain and loss. Awakening deeply hidden emotions within her, if Mira can use this to her advantage, she’ll have a new ally in the next battle to come.
This book is all about how Mira came about, it’s a step back in her memories. It explains her personality and mindset. This book is completely different from the others; it is almost completely told as her view. It is well written, but does not have the action in it that the other books have. To me it was a slow read. Of course I really like the fast pace of the ones before this one. However, it does give insight into why Mira is the way she is. Overall it is a good book and will help with understanding the series as a whole.
