Retribution

Immortality is never guaranteed…

As much as she dreams of a simpler existence, blood and violence are Mira’s way of life. Former gladiator turned freedom fighter; she’s carved a trail from New Haven to Caldera Grove and back, freeing her people, the vampires, from enslavement by the humans.
But with victory almost within reach, a new and powerful enemy emerges. One who’ll be satisfied with nothing less than complete subjugation—or destruction—of all supernatural beings.
With a secret army of his own, he’s more than prepared for any resistance Mira and her patchy rebel forces can offer, and demands their immediate surrender.
Never one to back away from a fight, Mira believes she’s ready for anything. But with the battle lines drawn she will be forced to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Kill or be killed.

Wow! From beginning to end Mira is engulfed in turmoil.  The action is none stop and it was very moving.  Mira comes very close to braking in this book.  Their were times that I was in tears as I was reading.  I’m not sure how she had the strength to pull herself together but it just goes to show how well written this series is.  It feels like you are part of the action, in the fights and feeling the very real sorrow that the go through.  I am addicted to this series. I would definitely say if you just tried to read this book as a stand alone you would not understand the characters and their histories together to enjoy it to the fullest.
