This book is Gage’s book and in this book we see all 6 of the characters that we have gotten to know in book 1, Blood Brothers, and book 2, The Hollow. We have found out in first two books that the three men are connected to the three women through blood somehow since the evil came to Hawkins Hollow in 1652 and since the three boys let the evil out again when they were 10 years old. Cal and Quinn have fallen in love in the first book, Fox and Layla have fallen in love in the second book and now it is Gage’s and Cybil’s turn to fall in love. All of them learn more about the past and they have more knowledge of what they are all dealing with but it is only getting worse for them and they only have a couple of months left before July comes rolling around and all hell breaks loose on the town of Hawkins Hollow. Gage and Cybil are the last couple of the 6 of them to finally give in to the love that they share even though they can’t stand each other since they first met.
Years ago, after their blood brother ritual, Gage, Fox and Caleb emerged from the woods, each with a piece of bloodstone. Now, it will become their weapon in the final fight against the demon they awakened. Winner take all…
Shared nightmares, visions of blood and fire, and random violence plague the longtime friends and Quinn, Layla, and Cybil, the women bound to them by Fate. None of them can ignore the fact that, this year, the demon has grown stronger—feeding off the terror it creates. But now the three pieces of the bloodstone have been fused back together. If only they could figure out how to use it.
A gambling man like Gage has no trouble betting on his crew to find a way. And though he and Cybil share the gift of seeing the future, that’s all they have in common. Were they to take their flirtation to the next level, it would be on their own terms, not because Fate decreed it. But Gage knows that a woman like Cybil—with her brains and strength and devastating beauty—can only bring him luck. Whether it’s good or bad has yet to be determined—and could mean the difference between absolute destruction or an end to the nightmare for Hawkins Hollow.
