Synopsis (from Goodreads): Anya, a powerful telepath, has always believed she worked for the good guys–the organization that created her, trained her, and turned her into the ultimate weapon. Her most recent assignment: assassinate the head of a group of mercenaries. The very man she believes is responsible for the death of her sister. Investigating the disappearance of three pack members, Alpha werewolf, Sebastian Quinn, finds himself under the scrutiny of a deadly group, The Agency. Targeted by their assassin, he must now fight to save his own life. Captured and held by the charismatic werewolf, Anya feels the stirrings of passion. For the first time, there is something beyond duty. Now she is faced with a choice — complete her assigned mission or risk everything she has ever known for a chance at love.

Much like Bound to Night, this was a fast paced in between read with good chemistry between the main characters and plenty of action. There is a little bit of almost insta-love going on, but that does have something to do with fated mates, and as it's a short novella it may not have worked so well without it. 

I liked the links to the previous book, a lot of the characters, including all the main ones, having been introduced in Bound to Night except for Anya herself, who was a new piece in the puzzle so to speak. I like having old characters still playing a role in the story, even if that wasn't an absolutely massive one (again we go back to this being a novella and therefore there just isn't time for all of that). 

Anya was a strong female character, and I defintely like reading about those. She was able to make independent decisions as well as be able to protect herself, and that combined with the fact that she needed saving herself once or twice made her feel like a well developed character. 

I'm interested to find out where the overall story ARC is going. The fate of one of the characters surprised me slightly so I know have no idea where book 3 is going, but I'm looking forward to finding out!
