I don't like the cover change. You can get the original cover but I'm sure you're going to have to pay for it. Nice money grab there. I'm on the fence about this series so I'm not sure if this is a case of being over the series or just not being in the mood to read this book right now. I decided to stop when I got eight percent of the way in.
Things pick up from where the second book ends so of course you'll have to read the first two books. There's a major betrayal. Things are going down the crapper. Paige has a lot on her plate. I think I've been able to tolerate this series because the whole master/slave relationship was kept at arms distance but in this book not so much. I can see why she'd want Warden as a ally but it gets icky when things start to heat up. Jaxon might be a total asshole but he did make a good point about the whole getting involved with the man who kept you as a slave thing.
On a random note I think publishers really should have book cover consultants. I offer my services and I won't charge a hefty fine. This whole cover change thing but hey we're going to also have the other covers available for you so your books match puts a bad taste in my mouth. Since I can't afford to just buy every book I'm interested in the second it comes out the odds are good that I'd be getting this book used and the whole dual cover thing is going to lead to sellers on Amazon and elsewhere to take massive advantage of those of us who want the books to match. I have seen some pretty outrageous prices for other books and I'm sure that will happen with the matching book cover. I might come back to this series in the future maybe when all the books are out but for now I'm putting it down. I can always get it from the library if I'm in the mood.
