You might be done with the past, but the past isn’t done with you...

For Raven Black, hunting criminals is second nature. So is denial. It’s not easy moving forward with one foot stuck in the past. But a new case offers her a much-needed distraction when Keystone accepts their toughest assignment yet—to track down an elusive criminal who’s selling children on the black market.

Their investigation leads them deep into the underbelly of the Breed world, a place both treacherous and enticing. With no room for mistakes, Raven makes a tough decision to lock the door to her past before it interferes with her job. The only trouble? Christian holds the key.

The stakes are high, and a shocking twist turns everything on its head. Will they catch this criminal before more lives are lost? Find out in the latest edge-of-your-seat installment of the Crossbreed series.

“Don’t get your heart attached to me, Precious. I’m not a thing to love.”

RAVENHEART didn't leave me yearning for book three, but I really enjoyed DEATHTRAP and was happy with the character developments that took place.

I'm glad I gave DEATHTRAP a shot. It started off a little slow for me, but thankfully didn't take obnoxiously long to pick up and get me interested in the story. I enjoyed the story of the case that Keystone was working, but the side stories actually interested me a bit more.

Raven and Christian make some interesting progress on a few different aspects in DEATHTRAP. I won't say more, but I was very happy with how things played out and look forward to more in book four. Raven has a bit of personal stuff to work through in book three and I really enjoyed how the author took her down that path. I was surprised at how things turned out with that path and I am hoping that it—and the person that is connected to it—comes into play again in a future book. I think there is a larger story there and I think Raven deserves to have this specific person in her life. I was completely shocked with the developments that involve Shepard. I hope he is able to open up to his teammates and something is able to be done quickly.

RAVENHEART might have not left me wanting to read more, but DEATHTRAP sure did. There are so many things on the burner and I can't wait to see which will boil over first. 

I gave it 4/5 stars
