For Raven Black, hunting criminals is second nature. So is denial. It’s not easy moving forward with one foot stuck in the past. But a new case offers her a much-needed distraction when Keystone accepts their toughest assignment yet—to track down an elusive criminal who’s selling children on the black market.
Their investigation leads them deep into the underbelly of the Breed world, a place both treacherous and enticing. With no room for mistakes, Raven makes a tough decision to lock the door to her past before it interferes with her job. The only trouble? Christian holds the key.
The stakes are high, and a shocking twist turns everything on its head. Will they catch this criminal before more lives are lost?
Dark and Poole never fails! This author and narrator pairing is one of the best ones out there. Dark writes great characters and Poole is a master at bring them to life with her narration.
Deathtrap picks up shortly after Raveheart left off. Raven, Christian and the rest of Keystone group gets a new case to work that leads them to find out more about one of their team members, Shepherd. The case as a good one and the Shepherd is not the only one who has to deal with their past. Raven is still dealing with letting go of her human life.
The best thing about the Crossbreed series is the banter between Raven and Christian. Their relationship is a long dance that has no end . . . yet. Deathtrap gets us closer to that end. Their slow burn romance reminds me of Cat and Bones in the first Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost. I think the slow building to their romance relationship is the best way to handle them. The journey to their HEA will be a fun one to experience.
We get a few answers to earlier questions in Raven’s life and more are revealed. Dannika Dark does a great job giving us bread crumbs to the over all big picture. It will be a long wait for the next book, Gaslight (2018).
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
