Being the seventh Morcant has its perks: Morgan is learning to fly and wield magical blue fire.

But the coyote shifters are growing bolder. Mateo and his panthers seem impossible to defeat. And vampires aren't real – are they?

When the elusive and enigmatic Chief Okema disappears and the wards protecting the Wapicoli territory falter, Morgan and Jackson are forced into the role of leaders. Badly outnumbered and outgunned, do they have time to search for the secret of the Divining Tree, and will it help them in the final battle?

My thoughts:

This book continues the story of Morgan as she learns to become a strong seventh Morcant.   This time the group seems to be up against an impossible force and in fights with several groups.  Also, they have lost the direction of Okema the leader of their group. 

I don't feel this can be read as a standalone novel, I felt like there were a lot of references to the other two books and you would need to know important stuff from the other books.   I also highly suggest reading the first two books as they are short and quick reads that help make one complete story.  

I really enjoy reading more about Jackson in this book.  I feel like Jackson is coming into this own now.  We get to see that he is not sure how to go forward in his life and take the power.  Everyone is trying to encourage him to take the lead, but he just isn't sure.  Jackson decides to make a co-leadership with Morgan.  I feel like in this book he still isn't positive he is ready to take charge and has more growing to do in the future. 

The author did a great job with all of the details in the book again.  I felt like as a reader I can fully visualize what the author is trying to describe.   The details really make you feel like you are part of the book while you are reading. 

I hope that this story will continue on and we get to learn more about what Morgan and Jackson are truly up against.  The author has a lot of options available on how to continue and I can't wait to see how the story goes. 

I would suggest this as a nighttime read it is a great book to unwind with.  I felt like the story was easy to follow along with as well easy enough to put down and pick back up while reading.  

I received a copy of this book from Beth Trissel for the purpose of providing an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
