This is the fourth book in the Darkwing Series and this one is a keeper after being a bit disappointed by the third book in the series, I was really hoping this one was going to come back full Darkwing force and knock it out of the park. I was NOT disappointed in this one! Daphne is back and better than ever as are the other three original Darkwings and several new team members are introduced as well that if you're a fan like me, you will not want to miss.
Daphne Urban is a vampire who has been recruited by the US as a deep black Special Forces spy that takes on the threats to the country as only those of her kind can. This time the team faces a cluster of Al Qaeda that have kidnapped 11 of the children of some of the most influential people in NY, as well as murdering several other people during the kidnapping. And it's up to the Darkwings to find them and get them back safely before the tenuous timeline that the kidnappers have set forth runs out. Outraged by the cruelty of the kidnappers and wanting to save the girls Daphne, Benny, and Cormack know they are going to need help to get all the girls out safely so they go in search of finding several new team members and what a ride it is.
I won't say more because I don't want to give away any of the good stuff. I will say look for several surprises in this one again that if you're a fan of the series already you won't want to miss! But I was VERY happy with this novel and devoured it in no time. It's classic Russe with LOL moments and heart touching scenes as well as hot love scenes to make you sweat and a gritty spy story to boot. Wonderful installment in the series and I can't wait for the next one!
