14th and final book in the Kitty Norville series. Roman is finally ready to end The Long Game and Kitty and her friends have finally become a big enough nuisance and potential threat that he has decided to contact them directly. With the chance dangled in front of them, Kitty feels they have no choice but to try and take him out but when that doesn't work she is made aware of just how very vulnerable she and her friends are. Now with most of her allies out of commission, she must do what she can with Ben and Cormac and the few others that are showing up out of the woodwork. Now if they can just figure out where Roman plans to strike they may have a chance. That is a big "if" made even more improbable with his pet demon continuing to make their life interesting.
I found this to be a very satisfying end to the series. There was a good lead-up within the book to the final showdown but that was not short changed into something so quickly done that I felt cheated. All the major questions were answered and the aftermath was dealt with nicely. I'll miss Kitty and her friends but I feel like their story has been told and told well. I will be happy if they show up again in other stories but if they don't, I won't feel like I was left hanging.
