Nikki James wants nothing more than to pass the Circle's strict entry exams so she can begin to plan her wedding to Michael Kelly. But when one of the testers attempts to kill her, she realises buying a wedding dress is the least of her worries. Especially when Michael is shot and kidnapped. The trail leads her to the ghost-town where Michael once killed a murderer. She's not surprised to discover that Weylin Dunleavy, the brother of that long ago sorcerer, has set out to raise his brother's spirit from hell. With a barrier of magic surrounding the old town, Nikki must battle Weylin with only her wits, strength and the one psychic gift she cannot fully control.… (mer)

Some of the dialogue was very mechanical, I'm not sure if it was intentional because Michael was under compulsion or something else. Interesting to see how things keep unfolding between them and their powers.

This is the final book in this set of stories and after finishing it I'm glad because I don't think I would bother reading the next one. Michael is kidnapped and convinced that it put under a spell so a sorcerer vampire shiftier can recreate the events that Michael killed his twin brother so he can bring him back from the dead. A mining town his populated bu lots bespelled people and Nikki goes in impersonating Selene to try and break the spell on Michael and stop the resurrection. The plot is what broke it for me. I read lots of urban fantasy but this was too much for me to suspend and get fall into the story. I wish I could have liked the book more but it just didn't do it for me this time.

Nikki is joining the Circle after all of her conflicts with Michael over her safety – but already her safety is at risk with the Circle itself being targeted

But she isn’t the one their enemies are focused on – it’s Michael and Selene, targets of an elaborate revenge plot from their distant past.

With Michael kidnapped, his memory heavily erased and him replaying the events of over a 100 years ago, only Nikki can enter this ghost town full of mind controlled hostages to try and save Michael and bring him back to himself

And stop a sorcerer from bringing one of the Circle’s worst enemies back to life.

I did have a lot of concern about this book rehashing a lot of what happened in Dancing with the Devil, since Michael has his magical amnesia, it sets us up perfectly to replay all those love at first sight tropes, all of Michael’s “but I can’t get close to anyone” clichés and the endless “but she’s so sexy I just can’t resist her” mental rambles that were annoying the first time round and no better going back to the same tropes with the same characters for another visit.

And I wasn’t wrong. We do spend a lot of the earlier part of book replaying these same tropes interspaced with lots of “zomg she’s so sexy” commentary. But it is only the earlier part of the book (and, yes, it was every bit as annoying as I imagined). We spend far more time with Nikki plotting to try and get Michael’s memory back and trying to defeat Dunleavy than she does on sex or even on how much she loves him. In fact, there was a shocking lack of angst considering the set up – I expected Nikki to be upset that Michael has forgotten her, to be sad, to lament that their future together is now over. But she doesn’t – she is confident in their victory, she is confident that Dunleavy’s magic can’t possibly permanently erase their love. She is confident in the strength of their relationship. She is confident in her own sexual attractiveness. She is confident in her abilities and their combined abilities.

Nikki is gloriously, refreshingly free from lots of doubt and self-recrimination and angst that I would so have expected from this set up. Her main concerns are less “how will I get Michael back” and more “how will I save all these people?”

Which follows for most of the book – it’s far more mission focused than any of the previous books in the series. Relationship issues have, in the past, completely overwhelmed the plot and distracted both Nikki and Michael to a horrendous extent (as I have complained about at length). With the amnesia and, more importantly, the long term relationship behind them both Nikki and Michael are free to focus on the mission at hand rather than their relationship issues.

This made the story a generally good read (once we’re past the initial problems and a rather excessive wordiness in the beginning). The plot is exciting, has plenty of action, lots of detective work and lots of brainstorming. Both characters think, both characters explore, both characters use intelligence and combat skills. They face many obstacles, they have to pick a delicate path to keep everyone alive and the difficulty of finding Dunleavy as well, all with the loss of Michael’s memory. It’s well written and a fun plot to read without it being constantly distracted

And I like how the amnesia was handled. Michael is a younger version of himself but bits of his memory bleeds through. I*t’s really well done – and not just solely focused on his relationship with Nikki, but also to how he thinks of himself, how he reacts, what he has learned in the hundred or so years since the events he’s now flashing back to. The spell degrades and his memory comes back in several pieces in a very gradual but very natural and understandable fashion – I really liked it.

What a way to wrap up this series. We learned more about Michael in this book then in all three previous combined or at least it felt that way to me. I love this series and hate to see it go (if that is indeed happening) but am glad to see a spin-off series come out of it. Maybe we'll finally learn more about what they do. Was hoping to see Jake get a HFN but at least he didn't end up in the hospital in this one so maybe it is his HFN. ( )

The final book in the Nikki and Michael series didn't miss a beat! Before Nikki and Michael can reach their HEA, they are thrown one hell of an obstacle that they both have to overcome. Michael is kidnapped and has a spell placed on him to make him forget the last several years of his life, and of course who Nikki is. Nikki then has to locate him and help him regain his memory as well as help take down the current bad guy, and in Keri's books, the bad guys are really bad! I simply cannot say enough good things about this series. Keri Arthur is an author who knows how to grab her readers and take them on one amazing roller coaster ride. I love that most of her books are Urban Fantasy and not just romance. When I start reading one, I know that there are going to be several books to achieve the HEA and that I will have several books with the same characters, getting to watch them evolve into even more amazing characters. This can be read as a stand alone, but for the best understanding about everything they have been through and what is currently going on, I recommend reading books 1-3 first. An absolute MUST read as well as all books by Keri Arthur. She is one of my all time favorite authors, and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us in the future. I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
