Patience and feelings were never things I could do well. Now, as Liam grieves—and my worst fears come to light—I'm torn between being a good mate and protecting my heart the only way I know how.
As more trouble surfaces, we realize Declan isn't the only shifter we should have been watching out for. With a traitor in our midst, I'm faced with more than one battle in my need for vengeance.
Just as I think we've gained the upper hand, I'm kicked back down, but my adversaries should have known better. I don't give up easily and I'll do whatever it takes to protect my pack.
Though, if I'm not careful with which enemy I choose to trust, I'll be the next casualty in Declan's battle for supremacy.

Shades of Magic ended on a solemn note and left me wondering what effect this would on Liam and Taya’s relationship. At the start of Shades of Deceit which picked up immediately from where Shades of Magic left off, there was a moment when I thought their relationship would not survive this latest event, but my fears were for naught. I admit I did not like how Liam handled the situation. He kept pushing Taya away when he needed her the most and allowed his mother to make disparaging remarks about her. However, it was good to see him grow a pair and proved himself a worthy mate for Taya.
Shades of Deceit was loaded with action and fraught with danger. The traitor has been unmasked, and the villain got what he so richly deserved.
I enjoyed the time spent in this world and getting to know the characters so I was not ready to say goodbye. So, you can imagine my joy when I learnt there was another book which featured Liam’s brother, Aiden.
Heather Renee weaved a story filled with intrigue, romance, and action, which kept me on the edge of my seat. There was never a dull moment.
Kasi Howell continues to narrate, and she did an excellent job. She brought the characters to life. Her voice for each of the characters was distinct. I would definitely listen to her again.
Conclusion / Recommendation
Overall, I enjoyed the series and I am looking forward to Aiden’s story.
Fans of urban fantasy, werewolves and witches will enjoy this series.
