Another installment in Rebecca York's "Moon" series about werewolves and people from a parallel universe, this story works on its own, although it does reference events in previous books. In this story, Quinn has traveled from the parallel universe to this world to meet up with Logan and Rinna and help them prepare for the arrival of another woman, Zarah, the pregnant wife of Griffin. Zarah is in danger back in their world,
and it is hoped that she can be moved to safety on this world until after the birth of her baby.
has feeling of being watched as she steps through the portal into some woodland. She soon discovers that there's a ghost tied to the land, and that she can both sense his presence and feel his touch. Eventually she is able to hear his voice and learns that he is Caleb Marshall, a werewolf man who was killed by his cousin seventy-five years
ago. The more time she spends with Caleb, the more solidly he begins to appear - but nothing can come of a relationship with a ghost.
A strange colonel is plotting something against the U.S., and his group of soldiers try to kill one of them whom they discover is a spy; he is buried alive in the woods, and Caleb calls Quinn to help rescue him. They aren't in time to save the man's life, but through some strange events Caleb ends up in this man's body, reanimated after 75 years. Now Caleb has the opportunity to wreak vengeance against the descendants of the man who killed him - but those descendents are Quinn's friends. Can Caleb settle into his new body? Can he put aside his vengeance against the Marshalls? Can they discover what the
colonel is doing and prevent a huge disaster befalling the U.S.?
Well-paced, events unfold smoothly as Caleb and Quinn's lives intertwine. The many references to events in previous books
are explained enough for new readers to this series to understand. This reader was never quite able to get over the
ickiness of a 75-year-old ghost reanimating someone else's body and living in it, and some parts of the plot
are loosely handled. It's ultimately a reasonable read overall, if nothing particularly special.
