Summary from Amazon:
Eighteen-year old Jaycie Lerner’s telekinesis is finally in check – too bad levitating a picnic table is now a workout. Not to mention her previously dormant telepathy is back and raging out of control. As she struggles to manage her frightening power, the Dey-Vah announce they will soon reveal the supernatural world to the human race. To make matters worse, people start dropping dead all over northern Alabama. Then, a mysterious new enemy emerges.

Jaycie must elicit the help of the world’s only master vampire slayer and an assassin who converses with the voices in her head. Strengthening the Core is the only way to protect mankind from the coming vampire army, and that’s not even their most dangerous threat.

Jaycie and her family face their darkest hour when an innocent young girl serves as a pawn to form a deadly Alliance. The perfect vampire, Lilith Bradshaw, becomes an eye-opening example of how far the Alliance will go to serve their own destructive ends. The world around Jaycie plummets into darkness, and betrayals from the past threaten to undo them all.

My Review: 
Darwin's Children series is so much fun to read. Having just finished reading Common Descent I really can't wait to read what is in store next.

It picks up where Unnatural Law left off. Matt is continuing to figure out how to help Jaycie control her powers. Just when they think they have gained control and have eliminated their enemies, they find out they have new ones to deal with. These new enemies are quite unexpected.

There are new relationships and some new characters. I loved Brianna, wow she is something else. I love the banter between Matt and John. In this book we learn more about the backgrounds of some of the characters. I was shocked by some of the revelations but oh are they ever good ones. There are some major plot twists and shakeups. Lots of action, suspense and romance. Oh yeah and Matt and more Matt, can't get enough of him. I really enjoy the relationships these people have with one another. I would love to have friends like these. They made me laugh so much throughout reading this. Oh yeah and then you get to the end and major cliffhanger. I did not see it coming and was shocked at what happened.

I am so ready for book number four. I love this series! This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
