USA Todayย bestselling author, Scarlett Dawn, scorches the pages with her fourth installment ofย The Cold Mark Saga, where secrets are revealed and heinous acts jump to life...

Braita Valorn has found herself in another precarious situation. A battle rages on the shores of Joyal and the Mian are shaking the sand with their war cries. Trapped below ground inside the President's bunker, Braita isn't even safe.

When steel doors are blown and gunfire erupts, Human blood floods the ground. The Mian won't stop. They'll never give up the fight until they're satisfied.

Judgments are made, an archaic stand within Mian laws, and Braita finds herself charged with treason. But never one to sit during a battle, she risks her last chance of release on one set of Plumas.ย Will Braita find herself in more trouble of her own making or will she rise past atrocity to obtain her freedom?

Note: If you haven’t read the previous books of this series, there are some unavoidable minor spoilers. Read ahead at your own risk!

I’m heartbroken!!! I adore…no I LOVE this series and have sinceย Fallย but this installment just didn’t meet expectations for me ๐Ÿ™ Inย Rise,ย Braita and Jax are taken into custody by the Plumas after their joyride to and treason on Joyal. Faced with the death penalty, Braita does the only thing she knows will work and reaches out to Phila and Killeg for the help she so desperately needs.

This installment we see a different Braita and I was both horrified and heartbroken and just overwhelmed for her. After all she’s been through with the Plumas and all her misplaced trust, she is literally broken both physically and mentally and you can’t help but cringe with her.

So I’ll admit with this being the next to last book in the series ( ๐Ÿ˜ฅ ) I thought some of the loose ends in the plot would start tying together. I thought wrong!!! Major plot twist with the possibility of a spin-off series was thrown into this story and now all I can think is HOW will Scarlett be able to sum up this series in one more 80~ page book?!?!

As I already stated, I’m heartbroken that I didn’t love this installment as much as I have the others! I felt like this book was a filler and building up to the finale. There was little romance, lots of violence and more questions than answers leaving me worried that the last book will be rushed. Of course it wouldn’t hurt my feelings any though if the author decides to extend the series a little ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you enjoy science fiction, new adult paranormal romance, than I highly recommend the series. It’s full of everything I love in just over 80 pages ๐Ÿ˜€
