This was a solid book, one of the best stories in the series.I didn't particularly like the Mel/Phoebe character, Phoebe was too evil and Mel too blah. But I kinda liked Stryker and I loved the Creed/Annika and Devlin/Gabriel side stories. That threesome? Hawt!I also loved the way the characters of the previous books appeared and were integrated in this story. Wyatt and Faith, especially.The last chapter was beautiful, a great way to close the series.I'm really glad I read these books. A big "thank you" to texxie for recommending the series to me.
